Out of Arizona, U.S.A., StableHost was launched back in 2009 and has ever since been providing hosting solutions to individuals, small, companies, and large corporations. Their services include shared hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, VPS hosting, and domain registration. The website is in English, by default, but also available in German, Spanish, Swedish, and Vietnamese.
Features and Ease of Use
The shared hosting packages offered by StableHost come with many features including the following:
- Unlimited bandwidth and storage
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- SSD storage
- DDoS protection
- Website builder
- SSL certificates
All plans come ready for easy installation of all popular applications in a single click such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and PrestaShop, thanks to the built-in Softaculous installer.
R1 Soft daily backups comes as standard with all plans to keep all the information on your website secure, even though it’s always recommended to keep track of the backups yourself for extra assurance.
cPanel also is available within all plans to help you manage all aspects of your website easily without requiring any prior technical, web designing, or hosting knowledge.
Pricing and Support
There are three different cheap shared hosting price plans provided by StableHost: Starter, Pro, and Platinum depending on the size of your website. These packages differ in the number of websites, MySQL connections, and a few others.
On the plus side, StableHost competes with other vendors by offering a 45-day money-back guarantee instead of just 15 or 30 days. It also accepts both credit cards and PayPal.
SupportHost, sadly, falls short in terms of customer support. However, the Knowledgebase section is good and includes many useful articles and tutorials. Even though there are several communication communication channels such as live chat, support ticket, email, and phone. I was very frustrated when I contacted the live chat team because I had several questions and all the agent did was throw a bunch of links, then terminated the chat session abruptly which is extremely rude and unprofessional.
