Reviews and expert opinion ProHoster

True to its name, ProHoster is a professional provider of feature-packed hosting plans (plus VPS and dedicated servers) at affordable prices. You get plenty of freebies, and although support is not 24/7, it seems to be more than sufficient.

Overview

ProHosterHaving been in business for a little over five years, Ukrainian host ProHoster is a relatively new provider of shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and related products and services such as SSL certificates and domain registration.

ProHoster sports an attractive information-packed website that can be switched between the Russian and English languages. It presents all prices in U.S. dollars.

Features and Ease of Use

ProHoster sells five Linux-based unlimited shared hosting plans, which — as the name suggests — provide you with unlimited traffic, subdomains, hosted websites (except on the lowest plan), MySQL databases, and FTP accounts. You also benefit from these features:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Free domain
  • Free SSL support
  • SSI, WAP, and CGI support
  • phpMyAdmin
  • Antispam and DDoS protection
  • PHP 5.2 to 7.1, Perl 5, and Python
  • Zend Optimizer and Zend Guard 
  • Cron jobs
  • Free site builder and Softaculous installer

As already alluded, ProHoster is pretty generous with its resource allocations, and I can say the same about the storage capacity that ranges from 5 GB to 100 GB. If you need more disk space, you can get up to 200 GB SSD storage with a VPS plan.

Since you don’t get the popular cPanel control panel, you might like to replace the provided ISP Panel by purchasing one of the other offered control panels. That said, ISP Panel includes the Softaculous installer that comes with hundreds of CMS and other application installation scripts.

As an alternative to populating your website with CMS content, you can use the free website builder that lets you create your website from a collection of 190 ready-made templates, no coding required.

CloudLinux isolates you from the adverse effects of other hosted users, and the free DDoS protection and SSL certificates ensure your website is safe.

Pricing and Support

Compared with other hosting providers, ProHoster’s feature-packed shared hosting solutions are very affordable, especially when you consider the free domain, free SSL, free DDoS protection, and other freebies. Plus the unlimited resources, of course.

Although there are no refunds (as far as I know), the 14-day free trial should give you just enough time to try before you buy. Then, you can pay by Bitcoin, credit cards, WebMoney, PayPal, Yandex.Money, Interkassa, or ADVcash.

You can contact ProHoster’s customer support team via a ticket system, email, or live chat during working hours. My ticket submission was answered within 24 hours, but since it didn’t address all my queries, I sought additional advice via the live chat channel:

How much does ProHoster cost?
ProHoster offers plans from $3 to $14. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which ProHoster plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. ProHoster can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from ProHoster here.
How good is ProHoster’s customer support?
ProHoster is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of ProHoster being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.

Like it server

I like that the server is easy to use and works without interruptions much easier life. I had to buy a control panel, since mine did not support it, but it’s for the better, the quality of work is higher, and the prices are adequate and affordable. And I want to note a convenient interface, there were no problems with the development. I think I will stay working with this server for many years)

Great hosting provider.

I liked right away that there are many types of payments, everything is clear in billing, without any extra bells and whistles. Those. support - explained what where why, competently and clearly. The site has been operating like a clock for more than 4 months. The site opens literally instantly. They also provide a lot of cool and literal chips. I am very glad that I work with this company. I hope the quality of services of this company will only improve.

I have been using this site for a long time, he helped me a lot in everything. I would like to advise this site to many. I like everything very much and I'm happy with everything. In general, I initially met this site on the Internet, but I thought that this was not what I needed. After some time, my very good friend told me about him. I want to say special thanks for the work done.

платный платный хостинг - Отличный хост!

I have never had any problems with access, unlike the ones I used earlier. At the same time, you can get a consultation much faster. You can immediately see that the hosting is served by a decent team, which quite deservedly receives my money. Perhaps the attitude of employees greatly affects the work of the host. During the entire time of using this site did not fall once, which in principle influenced my final choice. I'm not going to move. Even after the number of requests increased, the response speed did not change at all. It is also worth remembering about the bonus system) it Was very nice to get bonuses - again a manifestation of care for their users. So my long wanderings through many hosts are over. Now I will test the host on foreign clients - we will see what and how, but I am more than sure that everything is just as great in this direction. So I advise everyone - there is nothing to doubt! It's time to act.

paid paid hosting - Everything is good

I use this hosting for less than a month, so I decided to write a review. In General, I can't even single out anything specific, because everything is consistently good. Hosting was chosen based on the advice of colleagues, as well as reading some reviews on the Internet. Everything was fine, including prices, bought hosting and registered the first domain, again everything is convenient and fast, as it should have been, at first I did not understand how to connect WordPress, if not manually, but through the site, I turned to support, which responded quickly enough (apparently not often treated), helped and directed, installed WordPress and began loading content on the site, in General, then everything was exactly.
