Established in 2016, Pakistani host UGHost provides shared hosting and VPS solutions to hundreds of clients around the world. Its affordable hosting services are based on great hardware and software, and they’re supposedly backed by superior customer support. At first glance, you might think that this is only a game servers company, but digging deeper into its English-language website reveals the shared hosting and VPS plans.
So far, so good, but it may be too good to be true, as you’ll see.
Features and Ease of Use
UGHost looks like it strikes a perfect balance between performance and affordability. You’ll benefit from feature-rich shared Linux hosting and configurable VPS hosting plans. Some of its outstanding features are:
- cPanel hosting control panel
- Virtualizor VPS control panel
- 24/7 customer support
To speed up the transfer of your existing website from your current host to UGHost’s cPanel hosting account, you can take advantage of the free website migration. Not only does cPanel provide full control over your hosting resources and settings, but also the integrated one-click installer helps you install hundreds of CMS and other apps such as WordPress, PrestaShop, and Magento.
If you don’t have an existing site to transfer, and you are not looking to manage your content with a CMS, you can instead use the free site builder tool that comes with stunning customizable templates and an intuitive drag-and-drop user interface.it.
UGHost’s robust servers with multiple connections guarantee you fast connectivity and high availability. The 99.9% uptime guarantee means your website or e-store will almost always be available, although this guarantee is only about average for web hosts. Servers and accounts are monitored 24/7 and are protected against DDoS attacks.
Pricing and Support
UGHost advertises acceptable prices for shared hosting and VPS plans, and they’re easy to scale up or down. You can sign up on a monthly subscription with no contractual commitment. Cancel anytime if you’re unhappy or you find a better deal elsewhere.
Although the 24/7 support is only available via email, I’m happy enough with the speed and depth of the responses from the technical support team. Responsive support is no bad thing because there are no self-support resources as far as I can see.
