Features and Ease of Use
Stallion Hosting offers nine shared hosting packages, three VPS hosting packages, and six reseller hosting packages. Note that the vendor’s website doesn’t mention some of the hosting plans (budget shared hosting and VPS), so you have to visit the WHMCS-powered store pages to discover them.
The budget hosting packages provide you with:
- 500 MB to 10 GB storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited databases
- Unlimited email accounts
- cPanel control panel
An included site builder means you can create a professional web presence without having to be a professional website designer or developer. Alternatively, you could create a CMS-backed website by using the Softaculous one-click script installer to install an additional application such as WordPress.
If you’re still not comfortable with creating your website yourself, you can sign up for a comprehensive website package that includes domain name registration, annual website hosting, and a five-page website.
Reseller hosting packages come with a 99.5% uptime guarantee, which is welcome but is not particularly impressive.
Pricing and Support
As the name suggests, Stallion Hosting’s budget shared hosting packages are extremely cheap, and 15% discounts were available at the time of this review. You can pay in U.S. dollars or South African rands by bank transfer, PayFast, or PayPal on billing cycles from monthly to annual. A 30-day money-back guarantee gives you a month to get out with a refund if the services fall short of your expectations.
