QHoster is a superior web hosting company that offers feature-rich hosting plans with fantastic developer features. Webmasters of all experience levels can use this host thanks to their website builder and the Softaculous auto-installer.

Overview

QHoster has been offering a full range of domain registration and web hosting services since 2004. They serve customers spanning five continents and offer 13 different geo-locations including the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, and Switzerland. Their shared hosting plans offer robust features, including advanced developer support that you don’t find with most web hosts.

Features and Ease of Use

QHoster offers web hosting services with fantastic features that are perfect for beginner and expert webmasters alike. All plans include massive storage and the following features:

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Unlimited subdomains
  • Unlimited email accounts and auto-forwarders
  • Unlimited FTP accounts
  • Free domain name
  • Website builder and Softaculous auto-installer
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee

QHoster covers all the bases with strong server security and robust developer support. They offer some of the best advanced features that I’ve seen on a web host, including:

  • DDoS protection
  • Supports Python, Perl, SSI, Ruby on Rails, PHP 4&5, CGI, and FastCGI
  • SSH access & cron job access
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Unlimited MySQL databases

You have a lot of freedom to create advanced scripts with these shared hosting plans. You also have increased control over your web server with SSH access and cron job scheduling. The one thing that’s a bit lacking is their PHP support. It only supports 4.x and 5.x, whereas most hosts support until at least 7.1 with many supporting 7.2. Otherwise, you’re not going to find better developer support in many other places than with this plan.

QHoster is perfect for both beginners and experts as they offer a website builder, cPanel access, and the Softaculous auto-installer with over 300 apps, including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, and more. If you can’t figure out how to build a website with this provider, it’s time to hire someone to build your website for you.

Pricing and Support

QHoster offers three plans for their cPanel hosting, all offering the same base features. The primary differences between plans are in domains hosted and storage as outlined below:

MiniProBiz
Storage10GB150GB250GB
DomainsOneUnlimitedUnlimited

This host understands that you need ample storage relative to the number of domains you’re hosting and you get that with these plans. Also, all plans come with at least a shared SSL certificate, making this host an excellent choice for e-commerce. If you go with the Biz plan, you get a free private SSL certificate along with a dedicated IP address. Those wanting a dedicated IP address will save money going with the Biz plan as most hosts charge a steep fee for a dedicated IP.

Overall, these plans are priced at similar rates compared to what you see from other web hosts. You do get a discount for longer terms, but they advertise their monthly pricing first, not their annual pricing like other companies. Personally, I think the Biz plan is far better value compared to similar competitor offerings because of the dedicated IP and private SSL.

QHoster offers average support with 24/7 phone support, email support, and ticketing support. They provide a toll-free support line for both the U.S. and the U.K. I rank their support as average for two reasons. While they offer live chat support, it is done through Skype. When I attempted to contact them, I was unable to get an answer. Also, they do not offer an online knowledgebase, which makes it difficult to find solutions to basic questions such as setting up your custom domain email accounts.

Qhoster Fraud

They cheated with me. One month VPS hosting bill took but they closed the VPS with data. Didn't give the data back. Also took domain renew money but they didn't renew the domain.

Bottom line on Qhoster

Few web hosting companies offer the number of features you’ll find with QHoster. They are perfect for most websites and a great choice for beginners and experienced webmasters alike. While their support could be better, their robust features make them a host worth checking out.

Pros

  • Website builder and Softaculous auto-installer
  • DDoS protection
  • Supports Python, Perl, Ruby on Rails, and more
  • Free SSL certificates

Cons

  • No knowledge base
  • Only supports PHP 4&5
