Came across this website on a reddit.com post. I went to their website, looked at the pricing, and was shocked. The price of the web hosting provided by Host Koala (and even their reseller packages) were quite inexpensive compared to competitors.
If you're looking for web hosting, then Host Koala is the right place to be with their servers across the globe.
Very good setup time and service provided.
Service has been very reliable so far and prices are definitely among the cheapest.
I hope they add reseller hosting for people who want many cpanel accounts in the future
I host my own and a 3 other blogs ( friends and my company ) with host koala. They are cheap and reliable. Support has been very helpful and polite so far. They do not however have LiteSpeed Cache plugin available, which is the only down point I would say they have for a wordpress user like me.
I really like that this web hosting service is personal. I can message them on Reddit or send an email and they'll always respond. I've been blogging for years and decided to switch because I was looking for a service that fit within my budget and was user friendly. You can use the coupon code 'HONEY' for 33% off your order--that's the one I used!
I host an adult blog on the offshore server and can verify that they do allow 18+ adult content
Server speeds are good,but the space is small, but I embed most of my vids offsite anyway.
Support has always been helpful in answering both pre sale questions and wordpress questions
Best price I have found online. Service is very reliable and decently fast !
For seasoned cPanel users like me, it was very easy to use, support is good but their response time goes into the hours.
There is no site builder, but a app installer that installs Wordpress and other blogging platforms very quickly.
Overall, still a positive experience
I like HostKoala. I would recommend it to people who want CHEAP & RELIABLE service.
However this comes at a cost. Their support team is nowhere near as fast as most top tier hosting companies. I guess thats where they cut corners. In general, your questions will be answered, but it will take hours to be answered. Response time takes hours, and sometimes they ask for more info, you provide it, and they take hours again to reply. This will result in resolutions taking even a day or 2 to finish.
Despite this, if you know what you are doing, you should be fine. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't send mail out via SMTP, but HostKoala did diagnose and solve the problem nicely ( Over a day of hours of responses with support team ). Turns out I had a different email on WP and a different email that sent out the mail, resulting in my mail being not sent out because its flagged for spam.
However, overall, this hosting is still very very good. Its cheap, its reliable, and your mail isn't blacklisted. There's not much you can ask for, except maybe live chat or quicker response times. I guess I am paying $5/year instead of $5/mo so that's soemthing to take into consideration !
