Pakistani host Scud Host offers domain registration, shared hosting, virtual private servers, and dedicated servers. It has over 2,000 current customers, and its website is available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Scud Host offers regular shared hosting plans and WordPress-optimized plans that include these features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- 5 GB to unlimited disk space
- 30 GB to unlimited bandwidth
- Weekly automatic backups
These hosting plans allow you to build a database-backed website with MySQL (unlimited on the highest plan) and PHP. You can also get an unlimited number of domains.
The popular cPanel control panel lets you administer all aspects of your hosting, including configuring domains and setting up email accounts, databases, and permissions. The control panel incorporates a one-click installer for content management and other applications such as WordPress, Joomla, and OpenCart.
Performance is improved by the use of SSD storage that is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage. And this host claims not to overload its shared hosting servers.
Pricing and Support
Scud Host’s shared hosting plans are priced low for the features and resources you get. They could be ideal for startups or individuals who want to create an online presence on a small budget. Another plus point is that the WordPress-optimized plans cost the same as the regular plans.
Although only annual billing is available, the low prices make it feel like you’re not paying for a full year. And you needn’t worry about signing up for such a long stretch because the 30-day money-back guarantee gives you the opportunity to get out early if anything goes wrong.
Pay by bank transfer or Mobile Cash/EasyPaisa/MobiCash.
