When it comes to picking the perfect hosting provider for your specific needs, this can be quite the challenge, especially if you are not that well informed about exactly what you need to look out for.

If you want to host something off-shore, or in other words, if you are located in the United States, and want to avoid the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) is a United States copyright law, this might be the perfect hosting provider for you.

In fact, Flaunt7 is one of the most well-known DMCA ignored web hosting providers out there. In other words, many other web hosting providers do not accept nor support specific content restricted by DMCA, and this is the case due to the fact that it could lead to legal problems or complaints against the company in question.

Important: DMCA is a huge problem for streamers and gaming websites. Avoiding DMCA strikes allows for more fun and entertaining streams and game experiences.

By ignoring this, the provider will not suspend your web hosting, or domain name, just because a third party asked them to or filed a complaint against you. You will be responsible for the complaint and you will need to deal with it on your own, but your website will not go offline because of it.

The Flaunt7 admin essentially goes through your case and forwards the legal action against the violation in accordance with the court’s order. This is a service only available with offshore hosting, and it is typically located in countries that are less likely to act seriously on copyright matters.

It allows you to publish just about anything, and as such, you might even get the freedom of speech, assuming you are located in an area of the world where that might be an issue.

It offers 99.9% uptime, free SSL certificates, cPanel support, SSD storage, and great support, however, how true all of this actually is, we’ll find out as I look into each and every aspect of Flaunt7.

Getting Started with Flaunt7

Getting started with Flaunt7 can be a little tricky, but if you follow everything along you’ll have no issues.

Screenshot of the main page

You can either click on “Get Started” on the homepage or simply visit the “Client Area”.

Click on Order Hosting.

Screenshot of main page with highlighted Order Hosting

And here you can select the kind of hosting you want.

Screenshot of the shared hosting plans

However, if you go to the “Get Started” menu, you have three other pricing options, not showcased here.

Screenshot of the all hosting services

Where I’ll just simply pick “Shared Hosting” as that what I’m interested in for this review.

After which I’ll be taken to more pricing options with different features.

Screenshot of the web hosting plans

And I’ll just select the cheapest one here, as that’s exactly what I need and it will fit my specific needs perfectly.

Note: Flaunt7 offers a free hosting plan. With it, you can host one website, 10GB NVMe SSD space, unlimited bandwidth, one free SSL Certificate, and more.

Warning: If you get the free hosting plan that Flaunt7 offers, you will only have access to forum support, no Ticket or Chat support.

Okay, so, to summarize, there are two ways through which you can purchase shared hosting or other types of hosting, two menus, and this can be a bit confusing at first, since you are getting similar things, at different price points. Click on get started if you want the cheaper option and you should be good to go.

Anyway, once you select the desired package, you’ll be taken to another screen.

Screenshot of the Choose a Domain page

Here you can register a new domain, transfer your existing domain from another registrar, or use your existing domain by updating your nameservers.

Important: When transferring your existing domain to Flaunt7, you need to make sure to have an authorization or EPP code beforehand.

Tip: You can get the authorization or EPP code for your domain transfer from your current hosting provider.

Screenshot of the configuration page

Here you’ll get another chance to choose a billing cycle, and if you pick the annual plan, you get a free domain which is neat.

You also get a constant overview on the right side of the order summary, which is excellent.

Of course, in the end, you’ll always get the chance to review everything, which is neat.

Screenshot of the Review & Checkout page

After that, all you’ll need to do is enter the billing details.

Screenshot of the Billing Details page

Screenshot of the Shopping Cart

Now, here’s where, quite frankly, I was blown away.

Screenshot of the payment method selection page

You get a Bitcoin payment method; this hosting provider is living in the future.

Screenshot of the add credit card page

You’ll need to enter additional information once you pick your payment method.

Screenshot of the page where you can add the additional information about payment

You’ll receive an SMS code, simply confirm it and click on pay.

Then you’ll finally get to the screen where you’ll have the ability to enter your credit card information.

Page to enter your credit card information screenshot

You’ll receive an invoice email.

Screenshot of the invoice email

Once you pay, you’ll receive an email that confirms your payment.

An email that confirms your payment

This is all there is to making a Flaunt7 account, it can be tricky, but anyone should still be able to complete it.

Keep in mind that you can also buy a dedicated server here, SSL certificates, website security, e-mail services, access the website builder, the Linuxoid cloud, the CodeGuard, generate a website backup, get access to tools such as hacked site repair, VPN, SEO Tools, Free Hosting, Windows Hosting, and Storage VPS.

Screenshot of the categories side menu

Settings Things Up at Flaunt7

Screenshot of the client area

On the dashboard, you get this really simple menu, where you can manage your security through site lock, build your website, open support tickets, and see any recent news from the company.

Now, the unique aspect of this specific hosting provider is of course this website builder. Powered by WeeblyCloud, you can essentially pick a theme and start from there.

Choosing a Theme page screenshot

What I love about it, is its simplistic drag and drop nature.

Note: In addition to a drag-and-drop builder feature, Flaunt7 also provides unlimited pages for your website. Also, more than 40 million individuals and businesses have already used Weebly to build websites, blogs, and online stores.

Design creation page

You require zero programming knowledge in order to use this, and that’s always a plus.

Now, on the top bar, you’ll have several menu options.

Screenshot of the top menu options

On the Services Tab – here you can access my services, order new services, and view available addons.

Screenshot of the page with my products and services

On the Domains Tab – here you can access my domains, renew domains, register a new domain, and transfer domains to Flaunt7.

Screenshot of the page with my my domains

On the Website and Security Tab – here you can access SSL Certificates, website security features, e-mail services, the website builder, website backup, VPN, SEO tools and Manage SSL Certificates.

Screenshot of the SSL Certificates

On the Billing Tab – here you can review my invoices, my quotes, mass payment, payment methods and add funds.

Screenshot of the page with my invoices

On the Support Tab – here you can open tickets, see announcements, access the knowledgebase, see any potential downloads, and review the network status.

Screenshot of the page with my support tickets


On the Affiliates Tab – This is the affiliate program where you can get paid for referring customers to Flaunt7.

Screenshot of the affiliate program page

Another interesting part about Flaunt7 is the fact that, when you manage your security, you do it through SiteLock. This is a global website security protection and monitoring tool that can eliminate cyber threats, keeping your site safe.

Screenshot of the SiteLock menu

In order to access cPanel, this can also be a tricky process if you do not know exactly what you are doing, luckily for you, I’ll guide you throughout each and every step.

Go to the services tab, and click on my services.

Screenshot of the Services drop menu with highlighted My Services tab

Find your products and services, and click on the three dots on the right side, followed by view details.

Screenshot of the page with my products and services with highlighted View Details button

Here you’ll access everything you need in order to fully manage your website on Flaunt7.

Screenshot of the Managing page

Before we get into the cPanel management, let’s review what we have on offer here.

  • First, you can review your disk usage and your bandwidth usage which is convenient.
  • Second, you have quick shortcuts, including email accounts, forwarders, autoresponders, the file manager, backup, subdomains, addon domains, cron jobs, MySQL Databases, phpMyAdmin and Awstats.
  • Third, you have your quick create email account menu, which is convenient.

Once you access the cPanel, you’ll see a lot of options.

Screenshot of the cPanel

While this may seem a bit overwhelming at first, we’ll be going over each and every one of these categories, so you can get a better understanding of exactly what you’re getting.

Email

On the email tab, you get access to literally everything you would ever need in terms of email management. From email accounts to forwarders, email routing, autoresponders, default access, mailing lists,  track delivery, global email filters, email filters, email deliverability, address importer, spam filters, encryption, BoxTrapper, configure greylisting, calendars and contacts, and email disk usage, you genuinely feel like you have full control over everything which I find to be amazing.

Screenshot of the Email panel

Billing and Support

This is a unique menu available on Flaunt7 that I haven’t honestly seen in many other places. You see, here you can review the news and announcements, manage your billing information, download resources, view email history, as well as invoice history, see the knowledgebase, check the network status, view billing information, manage profile, register a new domain, transfer a domain, open a ticket, view the support tickets and upgrade or downgrade.

All of this is available directly through cPanel, which is quite impressive.

Screenshot of the Billing & Support panel

Files

In terms of the files tab, you have your regular lineup of file management, images, directory privacy, disk usage, web disk, FTP accounts, backup, backup wizard, Git Version Control, file and directory restoration, and so on.

Screenshot of the Files panel

Databases

When it comes to the databases, you have phpMyAdmin, MySQL Databases, MySQL Database Wizard, and Remote MySQL.

Screenshot of the phpMyAdmin page

Screenshot of the MySQL Databases panel

Screenshot of the Databases panel

Domains

Discussing the domains, you have the site publisher, the domains tab itself, the addon domains, the subdomains, the aliases, the redirects, the zone editor, and dynamic DNS.

Screenshot of the Domains panel

Metrics

In terms of the metrics themselves, you can view the visitors, the errors, the bandwidth, the raw access, the Awstats, the analog stats, the Webalizer, the Webalizer FTP, the metrics editor, and the resource usage.

Screenshot of the Metrics panel

Security

In terms of the type of security you can expect, you get SSH access, IP blocker, SSL/TLS, Manage API Tokens, Hotlink Protection, Leech Protection, ModSecurity, SSL/TLS Status, Let’s Encrypt SSL, and Imunify360.

Screenshot of the Security panel

Most notable out of these is Let’s Encrypt SSL, which is an effort to provide free domain-validated certificates through an automated way.

You also get Imunify360, which protects your Linux-based server and all hosted websites against malware infections, web attacks, and vulnerability exploitation.

Software

In terms of the software you are getting, you are looking at WordPress Manager by Softaculous, the PHP PEAR Packages, the Perl Modules, the Site Software, Optimize Website, MultiPHP Manager, MultiPHP INI Editor, Softaculous App installer, Setup Node.js App, Select PHP Version, Setup Python App, Setup Ruby App.

Screenshot of the Software panel

Advanced

When it comes to the advanced category, you are getting the LiteSpeed Web Cache Manager, the Terminal, Cron Jobs, Track DNS, Indexes, Error Pages, Apache Handlers and MIME Types.

Screenshot of the Advanced panel

The most noteworthy feature out of these is the LiteSpeed Web Cache Manager, which lets you reduce page load times as well as handle traffic spikes.

Screenshot of the LiteSpeed Web Cache Manager

Preferences

In terms of the preferences tab, you’re getting password and security, change language, change style, contact information, and the user manager.

Applications

Here you’re getting the WordPress Toolkit which is quite unique.

Screenshot of the WordPress Toolkit

It essentially lets you install WordPress with ease, and gives you a lot of other goodies as well.

Screenshot of the Installing WordPress window

Let’s install it. Keep in mind that you can select the installation path, website title, plugin and theme set, website language, and version of WordPress.

Then all you have to do is set the username as well as the password, and the email connected with it.

Screenshot of the Installing Wordpress (loading)

Screenshot of the message that Installation Complete

You can even install plugins in a convenient way from this panel.

Screenshot of the Plugins and Themes panel

Let’s test it out.

Now, let’s actually see what the WordPress Toolkit Does.

Screenshot of the WordPress Toolkit

What I love here is the easy maintenance mode toggle.

Screenshot of the WordPress Toolkit

You can review all of your installed Plugins in the tab; here are just some I decided to actually install.

Screenshot of the WordPress Toolkit

And you also have some pre-installed themes, and you can even upload more directly from here and activate them, which is nice.

Softaculous Apps Installer

This is basically a set of scripts that let you install different things.

Screenshot of the Softacuilous Apps Installer

And that’s about everything you’re getting with the Flaunt7 cPanel.

Performance,Uptime and Speed

Let’s get uptime out of the way, I did only test this hosting provider for a limited period of time, and throughout that time, my website never went offline. Is the 99.9% uptime claim legitimate? Definitely.

In terms of speed, with the plugins I had, and a few images as well as blog post content, the website loaded in 1.2 seconds, which is average, and LiteSpeed does indeed do wonders to boost the speed, which is convenient.

Note: Flaunt7’s data centers use a renewable energy source and their servers are equipped with high-quality NVMe SSD Drives and next-gen AMD Processors.

Customer Support Experience at Flaunt7

Let’s cancel the service and ask for a refund to see how the support team will handle these requests.

Now, they have chat support, which is found on the bottom right corner of the screen at any time.

Screenshot of the Live Chat

Here, you get a scripted, instant reply, telling you what to do.

Screenshot of the Live Chat conversation

Here’s how to open a ticket. Go to support, and click on tickets.

Screenshot of the Support drop menu with highlighted Tickets button


Screenshot of the My Support Tickets

Click on billing.

Warning: Flaunt7 does not give refunds for new account registration and account renewals. Also, payments for VPS Servers/Dedicated servers are non-refundable.

Screenshot of the Open Ticket panel with highlighted Billing button

Question: Does Flaunt7 have any refund policies at all?

Answer: Yes. Flaunt7 has the following refund policies:

  • Subscribers who cancel the accounts within 30 days after the initial registration date will receive a refund for the shared and reseller hosting only.
  • Payments for Domain Only accounts are refundable only until the domain is registered, renewed, or transferred (in case of delayed registration, renewal, or transfer).
  • Payments made in Bitcoin are non-refundable.
  • Domain privacy protection service is non-refundable.
  • If a free domain name is taken with web hosting, no refund will be given.
  • Pre-Order for any service is not refundable
  • In the case of payments by PayPal, $0.30 plus 5% of the amount will be deducted as a transaction charge for a refund.

Security and Backups

As mentioned before, you can access security-enhancing features on Flaunt7’s Website and Security Tab. Another thing I like is the SiteLock integration and all cPanel add-ons, as explained earlier.

Like security features, you can also access the backup options in the cPanel, presenting important ease of use.

Furthermore, Flaunt7 offers CodeGuard Website Backup as a specialized service. It performs Daily Automated Website Backups from CodeGuard, thus protects your site from data loss and corruption, threats from viruses, hackers, and malware.

You can choose between seven different plans regarding Backup Storage. All plans come with Daily Automatic Website Backups, Unlimited Files & Databases, One-Click Restores, Malware Monitoring, Automatic WordPress Updates, File Change Monitoring, Staging of Restores, Email Backup, and Full Automation.

Important: If your account is bigger than 2GB, Flaunt7 reserves the right not to generate the backup automatically. However, you can generate backups from your cPanel at any time, no matter what the size of your account is.

Summary

What I specifically enjoyed about Flaunt7 is the fact that it offers offshore services, which means that you can bypass any geographic restrictions you might have in your location. They live up to their promises and offer just about everything you would need for hosting a website online. The pricing is competitive, however, you are getting something unique here so that more than makes up for it. I’d ideally recommend this for people who want better freedom of speech or to bypass DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act).

Question: Are there any banned scripts and website types I should know about?

Answer: Flaunt7 has banned the following scripts and website types:

  • IRC scripts, egg drops, bots, Bitcoin faucets;
  • Mail bomber and spam scripts;
  • Port scanners;
  • PPC site scripts;
  • PTC site scripts;
  • Brute force programs or scripts;
  • Fraudulent sites (fake banking services, fake login pages, any other site mining information in illegal ways);
  • Viruses, trojan horses, mass ping, DDoS, UDP or TCP flood scripts, or another kind of destructive scripts;
  • Child pornography (If Flaunt7 is to locate child pornography willingly uploaded to a client account, then the client account will be terminated instantly without any possibility of a refund).
