Features and Ease of Use
Neostrada’s shared hosting plans have the following features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Daily automatic backups
- Free SSL certificates
- From 15GB to an unlimited disk space

It uses SSD drives for fast loading times and durable storage system. Performance is further enhanced through its support for Cloudflare CDN which customers can connect to easily from their control panel. This helps in caching static content of your website thereby delivering content to your visitors quickly regardless of their location. It is also very useful in reducing your bandwidth and CPU usage on the server because Cloudflare does some of the heavy lifting.
Neostrada offers clients free SSL certificates for secure HTTPS connection. This authenticates your website, making it safe for visitors to input information into it. To protect against spam in your email accounts, Neostrada provides SpamAssassin to help filter your emails. It also provides an antivirus to protect against virus attacks.
Neostrada provides Git version control management, which records changes to your files over time so that you can recall specific versions later on.
The control panel offered on the shared hosting is cPanel. From here, you can access all the files in your account in order to create, modify, or delete content.
One feature of the hosting plan that customers will love is the website builder. This helps you create your own website from scratch without technical knowledge. There are over 200 templates that you can choose from and have a website of your choice in a few minutes. There is also the Softaculous one-click installer. It’s a beginner-friendly tool that you can use to install any of over 400 CMSes/web scripts.
It also offers shared hosting plans that are specifically tailored for different CMS. For example, it offers WordPress hosting, Joomla hosting, Magento hosting, and others, depending on the type of application you want to run on your website.
Pricing and Support
Neostrada has three shared hosting plans of different categories. Its prices are fair with the starter plan priced very cheaply. The other two plans are more expensive, but well-matched with the resources they offer.
Its billing cycles are annual, biennial, and triennial with discounts on the biennial and triennial subscriptions. It offers a 30-day money-back guarantee on all shared plans. Billing methods are through PayPal, credit cards, wire transfer, Giropay, Maestro, iDeal, and Bancontact/Mister Cash.
Neostrada’s customer support is available through live chat, email, and knowledge base with FAQs and tutorials. I contacted support agents via email and got a response the following day.
