Hostinger Review: Not Your Average Budget-Friendly Host
Hostinger is recognized for offering above average server performance, ease of use, and multilingual customer support at one of the lowest rates in the industry. With a consistent uptime of around 99.95% and a remarkably low loading time (around 0.35 seconds), Hostinger delivers much more than you would expect at highly affordable rates, for both beginners and advanced users.
With its 99% uptime guarantee, 30-day money back guarantee, 24/7 chat support (this is open, however, only to users), multilingual customer support, comprehensive knowledge base, backups, free website builder, free domain name, and DDoS Protection, Hostinger does not scrimp on features or performance. For payment, you have plenty of options; American Express, Mastercard, Visa, Paypal, Discover, and Bitcoin are some of them.
While the “Single Shared Hosting” plan, the cheapest plan available, will give you 100GB bandwidth, 10GB storage, and one MySQL database, bandwidth and databases are unlimited for nearly all other plans. If you choose to move up to Hostinger’s Premium and Business plans, you will get 20GB and 30GB of storage, respectively, hosting for up to 100 websites, unlimited subdomains, and regular backups. The Business plan comes with an SSL certificate that proves your site(s) are secure and will improve SEO rankings.
Because Hostinger’s servers are located in different regions across the world, you can enjoy fast loading speeds from wherever you are. You can choose between shared hosting, cloud hosting, and VPS, which comes with a 100% uptime guarantee. If you are a WordPress user, you’re in luck; you can make use of Hostinger’s WordPress optimized servers that reduce load time to around 0.12 seconds and have round-the-clock access to support from WordPress experts.
Hostinger has created a custom “hPanel” for its users that acts as a domain manager and allows you to screen emails, track logins, and check billing information. Although this shows how beginner-friendly Hostinger is, it might be uncomfortable for those who have used cPanel for a long time.
No web host is ideal. Hostinger charges, like several other hosts, higher renewal rates. To make the best of its pricing policy, you’ll have to stick with Hostinger’s cheapest plan for four years, even if performance falls in between. More importantly, in terms of customer support, you can’t access live chat if you don’t have an account. This means that if you are looking into details about Hostinger’s plans, as a potential client, you might have to wait for a response.
Hostinger’s 30-day money back guarantee, according to its terms, covers all plans, SSL certificates, and domain transfers (.eu and .es transfers are an exception). Keep in mind, however, that domain name renewal and redemption fees, as well as amounts paid for added security will not be refunded. For domain name payments, too, you will only be refunded if you cancel the domain(s) within four days of registration.
