In business since 2007, Pakistani host Pkwebhost also has a strong presence in Romania and the United Arab Emirates. Its hosting plans are cheap, but you have to sign up for a year, and no refunds are available.


Overview

PkwebhostPkwebhost makes big statements about being a provider of reliable, affordable web hosting solutions for individuals and resellers. This Pakistani provider also offers dedicated servers for larger corporate customers, plus offshore hosting in Romania. The PkWebHost website is available in English and Urdu languages.

Features and Ease of Use

The cPanel control panel makes it easy to administer all aspects of your individual (not reseller) hosting, from managing website files to creating customer email addresses. The hosting features include:

  • Free SSL certificate for all domains
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • SMS notification of password change
  • Instant domain panel setup for DNS
  • DirectAdmin control panel for reseller accounts
  • Softaculous one-click installer

The shared web hosting packages could be perfect for beginners as well as professional web designers. Of the four Budget Hosting packages — Basic, Standard, Advanced, and Unlimited — The Unlimited hosting plan is the most popular.

Hosted websites sit on the faster-than-Apache LiteSpeed web server, which in turn sits on SSD storage that is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage. The enterprise-grade hosting infrastructure includes Supermicro hardware.

Pkwebhost has implemented weekly automatic backups to help keep your data safe.

Pricing and Support

Pkwebhost’s low-priced budget hosting plans can only be bought on a 12-month basis using Pakistani rupees or U.S. dollars. Some add-ons are available at the checkout, including advanced backup services.

Although you get a good 99.99% server availability guarantee, there is no refund policy for if you want to change your mind.

You should be able to summon 24/7 customer support via telephone, ticket, email, WhatsApp, Skype, or social media. Unfortunately, my email inquiry went unanswered. If you have to resort to self-support, you will find only 20 articles in the knowledge base:
