URLJet is fine, but fine is not good enough. While URLJet is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.
U.S.-based URLJet started out in 2003. Although it specializes in shared, VPS, and dedicated server vBulletin hosting plans, it also offers XenForo and WordPress hosting plans plus other services.
URLJet’s main website is in English, but its knowledge base can be switched into many more languages.
Features and Ease of Use
Although URLJet offers several shared hosting packages, they all have the following features in common:
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- cPanel control panel
- SSD storage
- SSL certificates
- Free domain for quarterly (or longer) plans
- Free website migration
All packages come with the Softaculous app installer, and you can use either cPanel or Plesk to manage your website and hosting. You also get hourly backups to keep your website data safe, plus the Cloudflare CDN to boost your website’s loading speeds and security.
Pricing and Support
URLJet offers three vBulletin shared hosting plans – Pro, Gold, and Platinum – which vary mainly in terms of disk space and bandwidth. These plans are pretty expensive compared with regular shared hosting plans. You can pay by PayPal or credit card, and you get a 30-day money-back guarantee when you register.
Support is one of URLJet’s strong points. Firstly, the knowledge base contains plenty of FAQs, tutorials, and other useful resources. When this didn’t answer all my questions, I got additional support from a live chat agent who did provide all the answers I needed:
Besides live chat, you can also summon support by email or telephone, or by submitting a ticket.
