Danish host YayHosting offers low-price hosting plans with the kinds of features you'd expect to find. I'd feel better about it if I'd received a response to my attempted pre-sales customer contact.

Overview

YayHosting

To help clients get online quickly and easily, YayHosting offers flexible hosting services to suit the needs of its varied customers. This Danish host’s bouquet of services includes Linux hosting packages, reseller hosting services, and domain registration services, plus Office365 and hosted desktop services.

While YayHosting’s website is in Danish, you can switch it into 24 other languages via automated translations.

Features and Ease of Use

YayHosting offers three Linux hosting packages and two reseller hosting packages (one shared and one VPS, with easy migration between the two). All the Linux hosting packages provide you with:

  • 99.5% uptime
  • cPanel control panel
  • CloudLinux OS
  • 10 GB to 50 GB disk space
  • 50 GB to 40 GB monthly traffic
  • Unlimited MySQL databases with phpMyAdmin
  • Unlimited domains/subdomains
  • Unlimited email addresses with a spam filter
  • Unlimited FTP accounts
  • ionCube Loader
  • Virus, malware, and DDoS protection
  • LiteSpeed Web Server
  • Comprehensive DNS management
  • Daily backups

All hosting plans come with an SSL certificate to secure your site and give your visitors confidence, and the Cloudflare CDN protects you against certain kinds of cyberattacks as well as improving page loading speeds.

The one-click installer makes it easy for you to install more than 250 web apps, including WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla for a blog-based website or an e-commerce store. Therefore, you don’t need much technical knowledge to establish a web presence.

If you do have technical expertise, you’ll be pleased to know that you get SSH access and you can schedule Cron jobs to run scripts regularly rather than having to execute them manually every time.

Pricing and Support

YayHosting

YayHosting’s Linux hosting packages are cheap. You can pay for them in Swedish krona on an annual basis via credit/debit cards, MobilePay, or (for public institutions) EAN. There are no money-back guarantees and no trial periods as far as I know, which is a pity since you have to sign up for at least a year.

You can contact YayHosting’s customer support team by telephone, email, or live chat. I received no reply to my email approach, but current customers should get rapid responses through the client area. The lack of response wouldn’t be so bad if there were adequate self-support resources, but the knowledge base is bare.

Bottom line on YayHosting

If you’re looking for a Danish provider of cheap hosting solutions, you could check out YayHosting. But beware that you have to sign up for at least a year and that I failed to summon any pre-sales support.

Pros

  • Low prices
  • One-click installations
  • SSL certificate
  • SSH access

Cons

  • Only 99.5% uptime
  • No money-back guarantee or trial period
