For affordable web hosting solutions, Pakistan-based RISE PK would have a lot to offer if only its website worked, its support team responded, and it had invested in new technologies.

Overview

RISE-PK-overview1

RISE PK is a small web hosting company based in Pakistan. This vendor markets itself as an affordable and reliable hosting provider for small Pakistani businesses, and it promises to help you “Rise Your Business With Rising Pakistan.” It offers shared web hosting, reseller hosting, web design, search engine optimization, and WordPress and Joomla installation.

RISE PK’s website is in English but it doesn’t seem to work well with all browsers. Chrome reports the website as being insecure (no HTTPS), and it apparently hasn’t been updated since 2013, so I can’t rule out the possibility that this provider is no longer in business.

Features and Ease of Use

RISE PK’s shared and reseller web hosting solutions include the following standard features:

  • Linux and Windows hosting
  • Free domain
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • PHP5 support
  • Cron jobs
  • phpMyAdmin
  • Softaculous one-click installer
  • cPanel backup/restore
  • SiteBuilder

RISE PK offers Linux Hosting and Windows Hosting.

There are four Linux Hosting plans: Starter, Basic Plus, Premium, and Expert. The basic Starter plan comes with 300 MB disk space, 3 GB monthly traffic, 5 email accounts, and 2 databases. The most advanced Expert plan includes 10 GB disk space, 100 GB monthly traffic, unlimited email accounts, and unlimited databases.

There are three Windows Hosting plans: Starter, Basic Plus, and Premium. All these plans come with 80+ pre-installed scripts, MSSQL backup/restore, online file manager, and support for 64Bit Windows 2008 R2 server.

RISK PK does not offer SSL certificates, and its own website is reported by Chrome as being insecure. And although this vendor offers backup and restore services, these are mentioned only in passing, so I can offer no additional information about how and when the backups are performed.

Pricing and Support

RISE PK’s hosting plans are quite affordably priced in Pakistani rupees and U.S. dollars. Unfortunately, the “order now” buttons on the website don’t work, which adds further fuel to the theory that this hosting vendor is no longer operational.

Given what I just said, the fact that there is no free trial and no money-back guarantee on offer might not matter. And the 99.9% uptime guarantee might be a moot point if this provider’s services are not running at all.

No self-support resources are provided, but you should be able to reach out to RISE PK’s support team by email. I say “should” because you might not be surprised to learn that my exploratory email received no response.

Bottom line on RISE PK

To be honest, it’s not looking good for RISE PK. Its not-recently-updated website doesn’t work properly, its support team doesn’t respond, and its supported PHP version suggests it’s not invested in new technologies. I suggest you proceed with caution; if you can proceed at all.

Pros

  • Linux and Windows hosting options
  • cPanel backup and restore services
  • Affordable hosting plans
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee

Cons

  • The vendor’s website doesn’t work properly
  • The support team doesn’t respond

For Pakistani hosting, proceed with caution with RISE PK.
