Offshore Host offers fairly priced plans with a few features but extra costs for some essentials. However, I suggest you proceed with caution until the broken website links are fixed, and until you can contact the company (which I couldn't).

Overview

Offshore Host

Offshore Host is run by the Cloudhub company that provides hosting, servers, and storage solutions. Offshore Host itself offers shared hosting, virtual servers, and dedicated servers from several server locations: Malaysia, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Russia, and Singapore.

Offshore Host’s website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

Offshore Host’s shared hosting plans provide plenty of storage (maybe too much for some customers) plus these features:

  • 99.95% uptime guarantee
  • One, two, or unlimited domains
  • 50 GB, 100 GB, or 500 GB storage
  • Unlimited bandwidth

You can access the underlying CentOS operating system via a control panel, but you don’t get root access. So, beginners are well catered for with the one-click installer, and intermediates can code with PHP and HTML, but experts don’t get more advanced options.

There are also no free automatic backups, so you’d have to purchase this as a separate service. Similarly, you’d have to pay for DDoS protection, but you do get email antispam and antivirus for free.

Offshore Host’s shared hosting tops out at 500 GB, but VPS customers can get up to 960 GB, and dedicated server customers can get much more. The RAID 10 configuration helps guard against potential disk data disasters.

Pricing and Support

Offshore Host offers reasonably-priced shared hosting plans compared with competitors offering similar solutions. However, as I’ve already hinted, some things such as DDoS protection, SSL certificates, and website backups cost extra at the checkout.

VPS and dedicated server plans are fairly priced, and the former plans come with free DDoS protection.

Now the bad news!

Many of the links on this host’s website don’t work, which means you land on a 404 “not found” error page if you try to access the knowledge base or the contact details page:

To make matters worse, I found this company’s telephone number to be invalid.

Bottom line on Offshore Host

Although Offshore Host’s basic shared hosting plans provide some useful features such as a one-click installer and RAID 10 storage, several essential features — such as SSL and backups — cost extra. The bigger cause for concern, however, is the broken website links and the unavailable phone number.

Pros

  • One-click installer
  • RAID 10 storage configuration
  • Antivirus and antispam
  • DDoS with VPS packages

Cons

  • Can’t contact customer support
  • Broken links on the website

Proceed with caution at Offshore Host.
