Sky Host is a fast-growing web hosting and domain registration firm offering top-notch services in Pakistan. They provide free domains on all plans alongside some other exciting features. Their services can handle both the basic and more substantial web hosting needs

Overview

Sky Host

Sky Host has been in existence for over six years, providing IT solutions at affordable prices and quality services to people in Pakistan and all over the world. The company offers both Windows and Linux hosting services, and they have registered over three million domains. They operate sophisticated servers in the U.S. and Germany.

Features and Ease of Use

With different business packages, and other shared, VPS, and dedicated plans, Sky Host offers web hosting that’s relevant for both personal and extensive business needs. Below are the peculiar features that come along with the hosting packages:

  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • One free domain, a .com, .net, .org, or .biz, depending on the plan you choose
  • Unlimited Bandwidth
  • Unlimited add-on domains on some of the plans
  • Storage space from 1GB to 100TB
  • Weekly or monthly automatic backups on some of the plans
  • Free SSL certificates on the top-tier shared hosting and WordPress plans only

Sky Host offers numerous shared web hosting packages that can handle both the most basic and more intensive website needs. The unlimited package, as the name implies, comes with unlimited add-on domains, MySQL databases, email addresses, and bandwidth. The only thing with a cap is the storage space; you can use up to 150GB.

They also offer specialized business packages with their corporate plans. With these, you get unlimited FTP accounts and one dedicated IP. Email is optimized for business as well, with some packages coming with unlimited email addresses.

If you’re a beginner, you’ll appreciate the WordPress plan. It’s only on this one and the corporate plans that you can set up automatic backups with any frequency you want. You also get a free theme. Another plus is the SSD drives that power the WordPress hosting. This is the only plan with that option.

You can still take any of the other plans as a beginner. They come with one-click installers for WordPress and Joomla!. While this is limited to those CMSes only, it’s better than nothing, though if you take those plans, you’ll have to set up manual backups from your cPanel or Plesk. You can run cron jobs for that on Linux.

Pricing and Support

Sky Host’s shared hosting packages are surprisingly cheap for what they offer.

Although the corporate plans come a bit expensive, they do provide extra benefits, such as optimized email accounts,  unlimited FTP access, and MySQL databases as well as a free SSL certificate. Better still, you can customize the features you use to your budget.

One downside for me is their 10-day money-back guarantee. This may not be enough time to evaluate their services. Secondly, they don’t accept monthly payments; you can only pay annually.

Customer support is 24/7 via email, online ticket, live chat, and phone support, and they respond quite fast; I contacted them via live chat and received a helpful response in seconds.

Sky Host offers web hosting plans that meet both personal and business needs. Although their support for beginners is laudable, few experts may not find them relevant due to the limited support for programming languages which is extended to only PHP and Ruby.

Pros

  • A choice of domain extensions that are free.
  • Beginner friendly with a one-click software installer.
  • Free transfer of domains and hosting.
  • Most of the hosting packages are very cheap

Cons

  • Money back guarantee is only ten days
  • Limited support of CMSes to only WordPress and Joomla!
