Features and Ease of Use
UltratechHost offers a full range of hosting services, including shared hosting, reseller hosting, Windows VPS, cloud VPS, dedicated servers, and domain registration. Their shared hosting packages come with the following core features:
- 99.98% uptime guarantee
- Daily and weekly off-site backups
- Domain registration available (additional cost)
- 10, 20, 30 or unlimited add-on domains
- Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates
- From 20 GB to 200 GB SSD storage
UltratechHost has servers located in multiple worldwide locations, but the shared hosting plans are only available on the Netherlands server. They have a 99.9% uptime record (not backed by SLA), they use SSD storage for faster read/write speeds, and they provide the popular cPanel control panel.
The Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum shared hosting plans all use the Linux operating system. Resource levels are 20 GB, 60 GB, 100 GB, and 200 GB SSD storage respectively, and 100 GB, 600 GB, 1000 GB, and unlimited bandwidth respectively. As well as very substantial resources, they also offer unlimited MySQL databases and email accounts.
There is good support for programming languages and tools such as CGI, FastCGI, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby on Rails, and cURL. For less experienced website owners, they offer the free Softaculous one-click installer (for more than 200 programs) and a pay-for website building tool.
Automatic daily and weekly backups are taken to off-site server location for data security, and all plans come as standard with CloudFlare CDN.
Pricing and Support
UltratechHost’s prices are quite expensive when compared to both local and international providers. But these premium price points are justified by the feature-packed packages. In fact, even the affordable base plan comes with 20 GB SSD storage and 100 GB monthly bandwidth, which is much more than most everyday website owners will need.
Hosting plans can be bought on one, three, six or twelve-month terms, and the prices are deeply discounted for longer upfront commitments. At the checkout, you can select optional add-ons including additional IP addresses, extra HDD storage, Weebly website builder, domain registration, and SpamExperts email security. Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates are included for free with all plans.
UltratechHost not only provides a 15-day money-back guarantee but also allows you to downgrade at any time, which is unusual.
Pre-sales and billing support is available during working hours on weekdays via phone, email, and live chat. Technical support is available 24/7/365 via email, support ticket, and live chat. Their website also has a detailed knowledge base and FAQ section. Not only is their support provision substantial; it’s also very efficient and helpful.
