One of The Cheapest Hosting Providers Out There
DataKL is a Malaysian owned hosting company so you will have to do some conversion on the prices to get an idea on what they are in USD or GBP. For all of the packages they offer you will benefit from a low price with the dataMini pack coming in at about £17 which beats every other hosting company by miles. They provide solutions for small to medium sized businesses, with basic support.
30-Day Money Back Offer
Not much is said about reliability on the site or in any online reviews. in fact, I don’t have anything really to say here as no information is offered at all on the site, the only glimpse of any confidence boosting bit of information is the 30-day money back guarantee on offer.
Servers Hosted in Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur
The features offered at DataKL aren’t outstanding by any means but do cater for basic users with 5GB storage, 35GB bandwidth and cPanel. All servers are hosted in Malaysia or Kuala Lumpur, and provide users with unlimited email accounts, unlimited MySQL databases and plenty of FTP accounts.
Not The Best Due to Where They Are Based
As the company is based in Malaysia they don’t offer fantastic contact or support channels to their customers, but they do go out of their way to provide a ticketing system, knowledgebase and client area, and a telephone number (Malaysian).
What they don’t offer is any live chat, email address or social media channels that can help backup their support.
Prices Are in RM So You Need to Convert
You aren’t going to find many places that get anywhere near the prices that DataKL offer because believe me these prices are rock bottom low, with the mini plan costing around £1.40 each month and coming packed with great features that make this company more than good value for money.
Even the biggest plan falls in at 160 RM per year which equates to around £30 for the year. Of course the only drawback is that the server locations are in Malaysia which is a bit of a drawback, as they probably won’t be lightning fast.
Basic Information With No Jargon
The DataKL website is one of the more basic looking sites that you will come across which is great for those who just want to know “can you host my site, and how much will is cost” but not so good for those who want high scalability, advanced features and exceptional details.
The only downside to the usability is that prices are in RM currency and not in US dollars, so those who want hosting outside of Malaysia will have to do a bit of currency converting to find the price.
Awesome For Small Companies
DataKL can offer some of the best, if not the best prices when it comes to hosting and that basically comes down to two factors. On the one hand you have a basic set of features and tools, but the other hand they are based in Malaysia with servers being hosted in that location. What you will find is that most hosting packages are full of great features and tools for a next to nothing price, which is ideal for startup companies, small companies and mid-sized companies.
