Even though HostArmada is a new company, I decided to take the risk and go with them. I do not regret this decision as they have proven me wrong. The company provided top notch service and have shown me that they are here to stay.

Caught Off-Guard With How GREAT a Host Can Be! (Update: Downtime Issues)

3.4
This is an updated review of Host Armada. I signed up for a three year plan, so I cancelled at the end of the billing period since I am outside the refund policy. There are several issues that have come up since signing up.

1. ...Read MoreMy site was down no less than five times in the past three months. This number is probably wrong, but I'd rather be understating my issues than overstating. Twice I was told that there was an abusive user on the server. Twice I was told that I could consider switching to a VPS plan. I have never, ever had this many issues with downtime with other shared hosts and I expected much more given the security and other aspects they have with their "high end" Litespeed server plan.

2. I had received two warnings about my database sizes going anywhere from 1gb to 2gb. This happened on two different sites. I found this odd because I (again) never had issues with database sizes going crazy with other hosts. I was able to fix this to avoid suspension, but I found it just a bit odd. I didn't leave because of this, but it didn't help me either.

3. I had a support question one time that was lazy on my part. I used their online chat. I felt like I was being tossed away with the response, which I did not save. I told them nevermind and that I would figure it out myself. I did figure it out. I don't even recall the issue, but I was indeed able to figure it out.

My fear is that they started growing and something happened during that process. As you can see from the review below, there was a great start with them. I have since switched to a semi-dedicated host and hopefully I will find the experience to be better.

----

I have gone through hosts like water over the past couple of years. I was looking for the right balance of server, security, price, support, and all of those other "nice to haves" with a web host. It was usually something with support or something that didn't quite fit (i.e. a staging site counting as one of your five sites....) that led me on a search.

Over the past two weeks I have switched one of my sites over to three different hosts. The first broke my site when moving it, the second handed me the keys to a bus that was in another garage (in other words, my databases were needing some sort of update that is out of my scope), and the third is HostArmada.

One of my "musts" is Litespeed. It is proven to be the best at what it does. Other companies use "Litespeed" in their marketing, only to find out you're hosted on an Apache server. For those who aren't tech inclined, Litespeed is light years ahead in so many ways.

HostArmada provided great pre-sales support and once I signed up they went the extra mile to make sure EVERYTHING was set up properly - from staging to CDN to making sure that the Litespeed plugin was set up properly on my sites. My sites have been running at breakneck speed (GTMetrix score of 98%, which is higher than any other provider I've used, including VPS providers) and uptime is looking great.

Other great features:
Firewall built-in
Up to date security for the server
Up to 21 days of backups automatically saved

You get a ton of bang for the buck. Sure, after three years the price goes up quite a bit, but it is still competitive with many similar solutions on the marketplace.

My recommendation is to skip the first two hosting packages and try out the Speed Reaper as it is the only of the three that is on a Litespeed server. Plus when you sign up at the introductory rate, you can lock it in for up to three years (which is what I did). Under $100 36 months of great hosting is an amazing value.

Thank you to the team at HostArmada for the great experience so far. In the unlikely event that things go wrong I'll be sure to update my review.

We all start with Shared Hosting. We bring Traffic and accordingly we need to move upwards. Your WordPress Hosting is a Important as you need ensure its safe, productive, and even in the absolute best hands.

Managed WordPress H...Read Moreosting is answer to all this.

But Why it is called as Managed and not just WordPress Hosting?
Simply because it manage all the tasks like without –

• Server-level caching (as well as a range of other quality-specific services)

• Automatic regular backup of the site

• Key Word Press upgrade

• Migration of websites

• scanning of malware

• The opportunity to build staging sites rapidly and conveniently

• Word Press-specific yet another-click backups on request

• A lot of (we’re going to run over a lot of these in a time).

WordPress Hosting Managed Features
Currently, managed Word Press hosting providers offer a range of different functionality. Here is a list of some of the most important ones.

Automatically managed updates
REPORT THIS AD

Automatic updates were a WordPress function for a while now. However, controlled WordPress hosting will take this a step by further immediately implementing security patches as soon as it comes out — in much the same way that big WordPress version changes are added to pages. Such organizations will also inform you in time, if necessary, of such improvements to ensure that you do have enough time to plan. Check HostArmada Reviews to understand this better.

Automatic manual backups
Due to the growth of WordPress, professional hosts can allow the backup process quicker, more effective, and more secure. What’s even more, making a host make frequent backups always makes it easy for the site to recover if things go poorly (and besides, what’s nice is making a backup because you can’t do it yourself for some reason).

Having a host making daily copies which can be conveniently used is easy because they are in a great place to grasp a set WordPress layout. It also contributes to the next function.

Better wordpress support
Your service mileage may vary from business to business, but I think that it’s fair to conclude that the average managed WordPress hosting service would (or at a minimum should) know way much more WordPress than the standard non-specialist host help. Again, because WordPress is only one method, it’s much easier to fix any issues that occur. Nothing is better than Rocket Web host.

Setup automatic wordpress

REPORT THIS AD

Functionality that lets you get up – and – running for a new WordPress site within a second. If you start a new domain, a full WordPress installation (and the required database links, and so on.) would be generated automatically. What you have to do is fill out a short form with some administrator and site information. , easy!

Staging environments
It is a perfect function for designers and/or site administrators alike. The staging environment begins with a flawless replica of your current site, which is only available to you directly (and has an unknown URL), and is super useful for checking new plugins/themes as well as updating/modifying code well before changes are made with your live website.

The Benefits of Managed Word Press Hosting
Essentially, the overwhelming advantage of a structured Word Press hosting framework is that it’s all well suited to operating Word Press. General hosts (i.e. the type that hosts all sorts of sites operating on all types of applications) cannot customize their structures to one single platform since they have to be able to handle so many types of applications. The same server will run a Word Press website, a Joomla location, a customized Laravel site, the Node server, and so forth. There’s simply no way to maximize all at once. Run WordPress hosts, on the other hand, work solely for WordPress and, as being such, will customize any of their databases.

From the operating system as well as the system files to the command line tools — for maximum efficiency. A perfect example of this form of enhancement is site caching — things which can be used to function much more efficiently on the server side so it can by merely using WordPress front-end extensions. Safety is another field where WordPress hosting is better handled. It’s much simpler to create a stable infrastructure because you understand exactly what’s going on and what weak spots of a given program were. Since hosts know how WordPress responds when anyone tries to log in with incorrect data, they may create special tools mostly on the server to automatically lock out certain malicious attempts.

Hello, Andy!

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback!

We have checked our chat history and we did not find a record of anyone with your name contacting us over the last few weeks. We also do not find an active customer...Read More with your name or similar using a VPS server with us. In case you got in touch with us, we can assume that it was only a live chat conversation, even though we did not find such. Still, as a customer-oriented company, we are eager to learn more about the questions you had that were left unanswered. Feel free to contact us over email at:

-> company@hostarmada.com

We will make sure to cover in detail all of your concerns.

Regarding the pricing of our VPS plans, we have to disagree that they are on the higher end as you state. The reason for that being that all of our plans are fully managed, meaning you will be spending time only working on your own project and focusing your resources on growing and expanding it, while we take care of anything related to your server - be it updates, custom modifications or handling issues. Comparing to our competitors that offer similar fully managed solutions, we manage to provide lower sign-up and renewal prices.

Thank you for sharing your feedback! We will be looking forward to receiving your email. For us, it is very important to improve the service according to our customers' requirements and deliver a product, which you will enjoy using as much as it will be helping your grow your project. :)

They specialize in offering shared hosting, VPS Hosting, and Dedicated CPU hosting. They are USA-based and have gained a lot of popularity due to their speed. What I specifically found appealing about them, and the main reason why I chose to review them, is due to the fact that they offer SSD cloud-based storage throughout all of their offerings.

The driving factor of the company’s founders was to develop a service that offers high-quality hosting at a reasonable price. Let us dive in and see if it truly lives up to the reputation with that out of the way.

Getting Started with HostArmada

To get started with HostArmada, we obviously have to make an account first. This being the case, the moment you visit the website, you’ll be greeted by classic slogans such as “Winter Special, get 70% Off!” and things of that nature.

While this may seem like a deal, these are common marketing tactics that a lot of hosts implement, and you are generally just getting this sale with the first purchase, which means that after that annual, two year or three-year plan ends, you’ll be left with the default price.

This is not to say that you are getting a bargain for the first three years of hosting, I mean, you can’t even buy a good cup of coffee for $3.99, and you’re getting an entire month of hosting? That’s excellent.

Screenshot of HostArmada home page

While I’ll get a little more in-depth about the pricing as we move on throughout the article, for the time being, I’ll try to figure out what you’re getting for $3.99, and if it’s worth it.

HostArmada gives you access to three types of hosting plans: Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting, and Dedicated Server Hosting.

Since I’m just going to set up a simple website, Shared Hosting will be sufficient for the time being, although you can upgrade at just about any time if you feel the need to do so.

After clicking on “Plans & Pricing”, you will be taken to another screen, where you can see what all of the plans include.

You’re essentially getting free cPanel, Free SSL for all sites, Web Server Cache, Daily Backups, Cloud SSD Storage, and 24/7/365 excellent support. How true this actually ends up being, we’ll find out as I test everything.

Screenshot of HostArmada Shared Hosting page

Once you click on “Plans & Pricing”, you’ll be taken to the pricing screen.

Screenshot of HostArmada Shared Hosting plans and pricing

There are two types of hosting services, Nginx powered ones, and Litespeed powered ones. Now, I’m cheap, so I’ll obviously go with the cheapest option, but I’m sure each has its own pros and cons.

Once you click on “Order Now”, you’ll be sent to the domain selection page. Here you can register a new domain, transfer your old domain from another registrar, and use an existing domain while updating the name servers.

Screenshot of HostArmada shopping cart: New domain registration

Next, you’ll be sent to another menu.

Screenshot of HostArmada shopping cart: Choosing billing cycle and server location

Here, you’ll need to choose a billing cycle. Note, the interesting part here is that you do not have a single-month plan, the minimum one is 12 months, or in other words an annual plan, and you can also purchase a 24 month and even a 36-month plan. The beautiful part here is that each of them ends up being $3.99 a month, so you don’t really have to opt for the 36-month plan if you don’t want to.

Next, you’ll have to choose a data center in either Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia. Finally, select an add-on booster - this is optional, but at the time of writing, I’m getting a 20% Discount Code for WP Rocket for free, which is nice.

Click on “Preview Order”.

You’ll now clearly see everything.

Screenshot of order preview

Now, pay attention here, as you can also optimally enable a domain add-on booster, which in this case is privacy protection. It costs $3.95, and you can toggle it off and on.

Now, you’re getting a domain name for free, which is nice, and I’ve also enabled ID Protection.

Screenshot of Order Summary page

With the one-time 70% discount, all of this costs about $51.86, which is honestly a bargain if it all works well.

Once you click on “Checkout”, you’ll need to enter a lot more information.

This includes your first name, your email address, company name, phone number, password, confirmation of your password, billing information such as country, state, region, city, zip code, address 1, and so on. Finally, you can select a payment method, either through a credit card or through PayPal.

Screenshot of Payment Method page

That’s about it. Let’s see what we can do after our account is active.

Keep in mind that you’ll have to confirm your account through email, so make sure you click on the activation link.

Let’s log in.

Setting Things up at HostArmada

When you log in for the very first time on HostArmada, you’ll be greeted by a screen that tells you everything about your account.

Screenshot of client area/ Dashboard

Here you can review information such as your active services, domains, and invoices.

You can also quickly and easily manage your services with the start dock.

The Start Dock gives you access to:

  • Access Website
  • cPanel
  • Manage Services
  • Upgrade or Downgrade
  • Request Cancellation

But before we dive into those, let’s see what we have on the left sidebar.

Screenshot of the left sidebar in you dashboard

Here you’ll have access to my services, order products, domains, my invoices, support tickets, the ability to open a new ticket, and the knowledge base.

My services tab lets you add a new service.

Screenshot of My products & Services page

Here you can additionally ad shared hosting, VPS Hosting, or Dedicated Server Hosting with ease. This allows for simplistic scalability, assuming you need to host more than one website.

The Domains Tab lets you see your domains, register a new domain, transfer an old domain or renew a pre-existing domain which is convenient.

Screenshot of Domains tab

The billing tab tells you what you’ve paid, what you owe, if anything, and when the due date is.

In the support tickets tab, you can easily open a new support ticket to resolve any issue.

HostArmada Expert Review

Simply click on “Open New”, and select from one of their many categories.

Screenshot of the Open Ticket menu

Here, you can pick from the following:

  • Website Down – you can request assistance with issues that are related to the availability of your website.
  • Website Transfer- this manages any requests that are related to the website or email transfer.
  • Domains and DNS – this manages requests as well as issues related to the domains or the DNS service.
  • Email Support – this manages issues and inquiries related to the mail service included in the web hosting packages.
  • Script and Service Installations Support – this manages requests for the installation of applications, scripts, or other services.
  • General Support – this section helps with any issues related to the client’s service everyday functionality, including security and loading speed concerns.
  • cPanel Support – this manages any issues or inquiries that are related to the cPanel control panel.
  • SSL and Security – this manages issuers as well as inquiries that are related to the SSL certificate as well as the security of the client’s websites.
  • Theme & Plugin Installations – here, you can manage the requests for the installation of themes as well as plugins for open-source applications.
  • Billing – here you can manage billing-related quests and inquiries.

Now, let’s take a look back at the start dock.

Access Website

This is the simplest tool, as it simply lets you access your website.

cPanel

This is where things become interesting. You see, here you’ll get access to the full cPanel.

You’ll get access to

HostArmada Features such as the Cache Commander.

This is a special function that works through NGINX. NGINX improves your website’s loading speed through caching responses for both the static and the dynamic content. When someone visits your website, they are submitting a request to the webserver which is available on your hosting account.

Screenshot of Cache Commander page

Files give you access to features such as File Manager, Images, Directory Privacy, Disk Usage, Web Disk, FTP Accounts, FTP Connections, and Git Version Control.

Screenshot of the Files page

Next, you have Jetbackup, which gives you access to backup features such as File Backup, Database Backup, Email Backups, and even Queue.

Screenshot of the Jetbackup page

Databases allow you access to phpMyAdmin, MySQL Databases, the MySQL Database Wizard, and Remote MySQL.

Screenshot of the Databases tabYou can manage the domains, the addon domains, the subdomains, the aliases, the redirects, the zone editor, and the dynamic DNS in the domains tab.

Screenshot of the Domains tab

In terms of email management, I specifically love this part as it genuinely gives you access to everything that you might need.

This includes email accounts, forwarders, routing, autoresponders, default access, track delivery, global email filters, email filters, email deliverability, calendars and contacts, email disk usage, and professional spam filter.

Screenshot of the Email tab

You can view visitors, errors, bandwidth, raw access, Awstats, analog stats, Webalizer, Webalizer FTP, and resource usage in the metrics tab.

Screenshot of the Metrics tab

You can manage quite a lot in terms of security, including SSH access, IP Blocker, SSL/TLS, Hotlink Protection, Leech Protection, ModSecurity, SSL/TLS Status, and Two-Factor Authentication.

Now, here is where things get a bit interesting, you see. HostArmada has its own website builder. You can select from multiple themes, and you can truly modify and make the page the way you want it to look.

This builder lets you build your website through the usage of drag and drop functions, which means that you are not required to have any prior knowledge in terms of programming.

Then you have the WordPress manager by Softaculous, PHP PEAR packages, Perl Modules, Optimize Website, Softacolous App Installer, Setup Node.JS App, and Select PHP Version. You can also set up a Python App, which in itself is neat.

As we move on to the advanced tab, you can see cron jobs, track DNS, indexes, Error Pages, and MIME Types.

Screenshot of the Advanced tab

Last but not least, we have the preferences tab, where you can manage the password and security, change the language, change the style, contact information, and even user management.

Screenshot of the Preferences tab

Manage Services

On this page, you can review the usage statistics, including disk usage as well as bandwidth usage, have cPanel quick access to certain, most used features, view your add-on boosters, and change your password.

Screenshot of your product settings tab

Upgrade or Downgrade

As the name might imply, here you actually have the ability to scale and upgrade your plan, and yes, you can upgrade to VPS Hosting as well as Dedicated Hosting.

Screenshot of shared hosting plans

Screenshot of VPS hosting plans

Screenshot of Dedicated hosting plans

Request Cancellation and Refund

This is where you can cancel your account and request a refund.

Screenshot of Request Cancellation Page

Simply describe your reason for cancellation, and select the cancellation type.

It can be either immediate or at the end of the billing period.

Screenshot of dropdown menu with Highlighted "Immediate"

Now, keep in mind that HostArmada offers a 45 day money-back guarantee period for the shared hosting services and a 7-day money-back guarantee for the VPS and Dedicated CPU servers.

If they fail to meet your expectations, you can essentially just cancel your account and state that you are requesting a refund.

Level of Support at HostArmada

As explained earlier, you can open a ticket in the support tickets tab. And here’s how.

Simply click on “Open New” and select from one of their many categories.

Here, you can pick from the following:

  • Website Down – you can request assistance with issues that are related to the availability of your website.
  • Website Transfer- this manages any requests that are related to the website or email transfer.
  • Domains and DNS – this manages requests and issues related to the domains or the DNS service.
  • Email Support - manages issues and inquiries related to the mail service included in the web hosting packages.
  • Script and Service Installations Support – this manages requests for installing applications, scripts, or other services.
  • General Support – this section helps with any issues related to the client’s service’s everyday functionality, including security and loading speed concerns.
  • cPanel Support – this manages any issues or inquiries that are related to the cPanel control panel.
  • SSL and Security – this manages issuers and inquiries related to the SSL certificate and the  client’s websites’ security
  • Theme & Plugin Installations – here, you can manage the requests for the installation of themes as well as plugins for open-source applications.
  • Billing – here, you can manage billing-related quests and inquiries.

But that’s not all that HostArmada has to offer in terms of customer support. As their user, you can also significantly benefit from their Knowledge Base.

Now, while they claim one hour response time on their email and 10 minutes in the ticketing system, you can also get an instant response using either live chat or phone support. Needless to say, I love their comprehensive offer with a friendly and knowledgeable customer support team.

Security and Backups

As mentioned before, you get access to many security-enhancing features in the cPanel. Several examples include SSH access, IP Blocker, SSL/TLS, Hotlink Protection, Leech Protection, ModSecurity, SSL/TLS Status, and Two-Factor Authentication. Still, that’s not what makes them unique.

One of the features I especially like about HostArmada is the User Account Isolation. Essentially, it prevents shared hosting users from interacting with one another.

HostArmada also offers a Web Server Security Fleet and an Environment Security Fleet.

The Web Server Security Fleet surveils the web traffic on every shared web hosting server to identify and deny incoming attacks. For this cause, they implement features such as Connections Level Limits, Requests Checking Service, Web Application Firewall, Static Files Checking, or DDoS Protection Service.

In turn, the Environment Security Fleet features Live Security Events Monitoring, Advanced Network Firewall and WAF, Intrusion Detection and Prevention System, Malware Scanning, Proactive Zero-day attack detection, and OS Patch Management.

When it comes to backups, HostArmada provides daily backups in all of its Shared Hosting plans to protect its users’ data further.

Specific Features of HostArmada

The main advantages and features of HostArmada are fast speed, reliable security, and 24/7 technical support.

Furthermore, there are specific benefits for each service on offer.

  • Shared Hosting – Here you can fully manage your server through cPanel and WHM, you get a free domain registration or transfer, you get free website transfers, up to 3 websites, a free SSL Certificate for all of your domains and subdomains, as well as free daily backups.
  • VPS Hosting – Here you can fully manage your server through cPanel and WHM, and you get cloud SSD platform KVM Virtualization,  with scalable solutions that grow with you, remote backups in case of a disaster, through disaster recovery snapshot, and root access which gives you full control on demand.
  • Dedicated Hosting - Here you can fully manage your server through cPanel and WHM, you also get access to a Cloud SSD platform with KVM virtualization, dedicated CPUs that can give you full access to the resources, and DDoS protection with a hardware network firewall. You also have full control, on demand through root access.

Pricing of HostArmada

What I find particularly interesting about HostArmada is that the payment remains the same, no matter how long you sign up. For example, if the price is $3.99 per month, for a year, it’s the same when you pay for three years.

Now, after the year, or two year, or even three-year plan ends, that’s when the pricing finally changes, which is fair.

  • For Shared hosting, you have three plans. Start Dock, which begins at $3.99 ($13.31 standard), Web Warp, which begins at $4.69 ($15.64 standard), and Speed Reaper that begins at $5.66 ($18.86 standard).
  • For VPS hosting, you have Web Shuttle, which begins at $41.21 ($54.95 standard), Web Voyager that begins at $48.71 ($64.95 standard), Web Raider which begins at $63.71 ($84.95 standard), and Site Carrier which begins at $101.21 ($134.95 standard).
  • For Dedicated Server Hosting, you have Armada DS – Lift Off! Which starts at $149, Armada DS – Low Orbit that begins at $209, and Armada DS – High Orbit that begins at $329 per month.

Performance, Speed and Uptime

HostArmada promises an uptime of 99.9% which is respectable, and throughout my testing, it delivered on this promise. The speed was also exceptional, and this should not be a surprise, as all of the servers run on SSD’s.

This means that you don’t really have to wait much time for anything to load, and many of the features of the website itself load in milliseconds. In terms of number, with WordPress and a lot of images, you’ll probably wait a maximum of 1.30 seconds for a page to load. Keep in mind that this is a page of around 3 MB.

Summary

HostArmada, while new on the market, is truly a worthy competitor. It offers a lot of excellent features at a competitive price point to truly make it a worthwhile experience. Each of the servers has phenomenal speeds and uptime, and the user interface is simplistic to the point where just about anyone can find their way around it. That being said, you can only pay for an annual plan, and there’s no single-month plan. Furthermore, you get a 45 money-back guarantee, which is neat for testing things out, but you’ll have to provide $50 up-front in order to get access to it.

All-in-all it’s an excellent hosting provider that should be perfect for newcomers, and given the fact that it has a knowledge base, ticketing system, and live chat support, it’s extremely user-friendly.
