YourLastHost was established in January 2016 by individuals who consider themselves “computer geeks and Linux fanatics.” The company has a worldwide presence with data centers situated in the U.S., France, and India. Its current statistics stand at 50,000+ hosted websites, and 7,000+ deployed servers. The website is available and maintained in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Among other web hosting services, YourLastHost provides Linux and Windows shared hosting. The shared hosting typically entails:
- 100% uptime guarantee backed by SLA
- SSD hard drives
- Nightly backups
- Free SSL certificates
- 90-day money-back guarantee
- Free website migrations
- Multi add-on domain support
All of the shared hosting packages start with 2GB SSD storage and 100GB bandwidth, on the entry-level plan. YourLastHost allows for smooth upgrades to up to 50GB SSD storage and at least 1500GB bandwidth on its high-end plan. The Linux shared hosting features CloudLinux OS, free Comodo SSL certificates, and LiteSpeed web servers whereas Windows features free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates, ASP.NET support, and CloudFlare.
All shared hosting packages feature the latest, flexible and easy-to-use control panels which give you absolute control and full management of your websites and hosting environment. These are cPanel for Linux and Plesk Onyx 17.5 for Windows.
Furthermore, these control panels come with an integrated one-click installer. You will enjoy automatic installation, backups, and updates of over 100+ scripts such as Magento and Bootstrap with either Softaculous or the Plesk Application Vault. This requires zero technical skills and knowledge to accomplish.
Pricing and Support
This vendor’s hosting prices are in line with average market prices. Although it doesn’t offer free domain names, you will get slightly more SSD storage spaces and bandwidth compared to most competitors.
There’s no free trial period available but you can most certainly take advantage of the very generous 90-day money-back guarantee to test if the services fully satisfy your requirements. It is also good to see them offering free website migration services and free Let’s Encrypt and Comodo SSL certificates for your website.
The packages have one, three, six, and twelve-month billing terms and allow for payment through a wide range of options. These include PayPal, credit and debit cards, Blockchain through Bitcoin, CoinPayment, Razorpay, WebMoney, Yandex. Money, QIWI wallet, and wire or bank transfers.
There is a slightly detailed knowledge base and a guarantee of 30 minute response time through the 24/7/365 support. This is currently done through live chat, ticket, and telephone. I was curious about this guarantee and decided to test it out. The claims seem to be true since I got a response in less than twenty minutes. Despite the reply coming from an agent who is still in training, the feedback was courteous and provided me with the answers that I needed.
