Turkishost is a branch of a Turkish design company based in Famagusta, Cyprus, which has served the hosting sector since 2006. It has registered almost 5,000 domains, published more than 8,600 websites, and has nearly 50,000 happy customers.
Turkishost helps you create quality web sites at cost-effective prices, and manage them via a Turkish management panel. Although this host’s website can be switched between the Turkish and English languages, the switch doesn’t seem to work correctly in my desktop Chrome browser.
Features and Ease of Use
Turkishost offers eight shared hosting plans, eight reseller hosting plans, three email hosting plans, eight VPS plans, and six cloud packages. All of them come in Windows and Linux variants. With the Linux shared hosting plans, you get:
- A free company site
- A free domain
- 1 GB to unlimited SSD storage
- 50 GB to unlimited monthly traffic
- Unlimited RAM
- 1-core to 8-core CPU
- 10 to unlimited emails
- 1 to unlimited hosted domains
- Free SSL certificate
- 1 to 10 databases
- Optional daily/weekly backups
This host promises 100% uptime, and it uses clone server technology to store a copy of your website on another server. The SSD storage assures superior performance and reliability.
Pricing and Support
Turkishost’s shared hosting plans are cheap, but the costs could increase at the checkout once you’ve added extras such as an SSL certificate, daily backups, or a fixed IP address. You can pay in U.S. dollars via a variety of methods, including PayPal, credit/debit card, Turkey’s TROY electronic payment, BKM Express, and Western Union.
Annual and lifetime billing cycles are available, with the lifetime option equating to about eight years worth of hosting. If the thought of signing up for a whole year (let alone forever) makes you feel uncomfortable, you can seek some solace in the 15-day money-back guarantee that should get you out within two weeks if you change your mind. This is shorter than the 30-day refund window afforded by many other hosts.
Turkishost provides 24/7 technical support via telephone, live chat, WhatsApp, or email. Unfortunately, live chat was unavailable when I wanted to try it, and my offline message went unanswered.
Apart from a few short FAQ sections on some of the service pages, self-support resources seem to be in short supply.
