Nice hosting for Philippine Sites
Capitan Hosting is a Philippine web hosting company offering web hosting and reseller hosting with virtual private servers and dedicated servers. They also offer domain registration and a few additional services such as web design, search engine optimization, and domain reseller options. They want to offer inexpensive hosting services to their customers in order to expand their customer base. Though Capitan Hosting is a Philippines-based company, they have datacenters in the United States and Europe. They clearly want to cater to a larger market and have a bigger global presence in their service offering.
Uptime & Reliability
Very good reliability for a discounted provider
Capitan Hosting guarantees 99.9% reliability for their server uptime. They claim their hosting network is structured, sophisticated, and redundant with no single points of failure. They guarantee facility functionality with environmental and physical security protections. Their database and web servers also have the same guarantee and they offer one free month’s worth of services for any guarantee that is not met in full.
They offer free webhosting services with limited features if you are not looking to keep up any major projects or maybe just want to hold a personal page for your interests. Their budget hosting packages come with a few more features, small disk space, and a limited amount of monthly bandwidth but a number of other unlimited options. Each plan only goes up from there based on your needs. Additionally, they offer reseller hosting plans if that is something you are looking for as well. They have virtual private servers and dedicated servers along with shared servers depending on client needs. Their domain registration and hosting comes with DNS services, privacy protection, and domain theft protection. These features are included in all of their budget plans. Additionally, they offer a few SEO, web design and domain reseller options.
Surprisingly good tech support
This hosting company is staffed 24/7 in order to take care of any problems that may arise. They have a support staff in order to quickly, reliably, and professionally handle any issues, and guarantee a ticket response time within 3 hours. They do note that most tickets only take minutes to respond. They also have a knowledgebase and tutorials in case you are more interested in self-learning or trying to figure out issues on your own.
Great prices including some free hosting options
Outside of the free plans, lite budget plans start at $7.49 a month which is fairly inexpensive compared to other hosting sites. Depending on your needs, there are a number of higher budget packages that come with more storage and bandwidth, and many packages come with a number of unlimited features. They currently offer a promotion of 35% off your first month’s package, and have differing rolling promotions throughout the year. Reseller hosting starts at $5.95 a month, and virtual private servers start at $40 a month which is fairly comparable to other hosting sites. They do not have any explicit prices for dedicated servers, but instead ask for an inquiry to discuss dedicated server pricing options. Lastly, their domain registration and hosting prices start at $11.49 a year for a .com address, and is slightly less than what I have seen with other companies. All plans offer a 30-day money back guarantee, and they also offer a price-match guarantee.
