Hello George,

It depends on your location. If you are from UK choose hostinger.co.uk :) if you are from US or country where we do not have local hostinger, choose hostinger.com

So basically, your FREE FOREVER plan is free testing and learning forever? You really should say that it wont function properly unless you pay for an upgrade.
Hostinger
Hey Martyn,

Our free plan has limits. If you try to run resource hungry script or web application or you get thousand of hits daily to your website it may result in service interference. But it functions properly. Millions of our free clients can confirm this :) .

It is not about replying to the queries, it is about the service and resolutions!

You provide an SSL certificate which had issue thrice. Your backend team had to get it reinstalled to get it running again. There is no way to solve such issues on our own.

Large Scale Global Hosting Provider

Hostinger is a well-known hosting provider, which focuses on offering cheap web hosting, but without sacrificing its performance and speed. They primarily provide shared hosting solutions to their customers, although they also have VPS options available for those who need it. In addition to web hosting, you can also use them to register your domain name and use their convenient website builder system. The website builder is a standard tool that many hosting providers use today, but it does get the job done for those who want to get a simple website up fast.
The company was established back in 2004, and they have grown to become one of the larger hosting services in the world today. They claim to provide services to more than 29 million users spread out over 178 different countries and are still growing.

Uptime & Reliability

Quality Hosting with a 99.9% Uptime Guarantee

Hostinger promises good quality hosting to its customers, but sometimes even the best providers face problems.
Fortunately, according to the tests, Hostinger had great uptime, many times even reaching 100%. However, sometimes their uptime was slightly lower, causing up to a few hours of downtime per month. Nonetheless, you get a 99.9% uptime guarantee with all your hosting packages, so you can be confident that you won’t have any serious problems with your websites.
In addition, the company has a 30-day risk-free trial program, meaning that if you are not satisfied with their service for any reason, they will refund you the money. There are no conditions to this, as it’s a “no questions asked” policy. From all the research we did, we couldn’t find many people who had any types of complaints regarding their uptime.

Top Notch Affordable Hosting Features

Considering the low prices of Hostinger, the first impression people get is that this company does not offer out of the ordinary features, nor anything advanced, but that’s where you are wrong. They have a great list of features that will meet the needs of just about anyone looking for entry-level to mid-level hosting services.
Depending on which package you choose, the more you pay, the better the features. They include a free domain name for most hosting packages, at least 10 GB of disk space, solid state drives on most hosting platforms, very generous bandwidth, and much more. The different shared hosting packages are all easy to understand, so you will always know exactly what you are getting.
If you need more power or control than you can get out of a shared hosting server, you can move up to the VPS hosting solutions which they provide. They have six VPS solutions to choose from, all of which have a generous set of features, including at least 1GB of RAM, 2 GB of burst ram, a 2.4GHz CPU, and much more. You’ll also be given plenty of disk space and bandwidth, along with a dedicated IP and full root access on all VPS, making them a great option for most people.

Support

Decent 24 Hour Support

Customer support is not Hostinger’s best feature. Although they provide 24/7 support, it’s still a bit limited, as they don’t have a live chat, or a contact number. The only way to communicate with their tech support is via their contact form.
However, considering that this company offers only shared and VPS hosting, chances are you won’t face any serious problems. Tech support sometimes takes time to answer your questions, but they are well informed and professional. For more basic information you can also browse through their tutorials and other documentation posted on the website.
Overall, although they can work on their support, it’s still quite decent.

Pricing

Compare
9.5

Very Reasonable Prices

Many web hosting companies market themselves as “Cheap web hosting”, but not many deliver what they say. Often you will find countless hidden costs, but that won’t be the case with Hostinger.
Their shared hosting packages are affordable and start out at just $2.15 per month. For such a low amount of money, you get hosting for one website, 10 GB of disk space, 100 GB of bandwidth, and much more. For just $3.49 per month, you can get unlimited disk space (solid state drives), unlimited website hosting, and unlimited bandwidth.
The VPS solutions are even more affordable, with the least expensive option costing just $7.86 per month. Unfortunately, some of their price plans are a bit higher than before, but they are still below average. The most expensive option costs $63.16 per month, a price that actually dropped over the years.
Unfortunately, they don’t have dedicated servers, which means that if you are looking for a higher end solution, you will likely be better off with another hosting provider.

Speed

Very Respectable Hosting Speeds

As mentioned before, regardless of the low prices, Hostinger does not sacrifice performance and speed. So, if you decide to use them as your web host company, you won’t be making a mistake. All of the speed tests showed great loading results, above the average speeds.
They clearly don’t oversell their shared hosting servers, and they have done a great job at making sure that their hardware is kept up to date, as their network connections are always very fast. When it comes to shared hosting, this is one of the faster options for budget-friendly companies.

Summary

Exceptional Low-Cost Hosting

Hostinger is one of the top hosting companies in the world and is widely recognized as being one of the best low-cost hosting providers around. They have been growing quickly for quite a long time now and showing no sign of slowing down. With multiple datacenters around the world and great features, this is one of the best hosting providers you could ask for if you just need basic shared hosting solutions.

Pros:

  • 99.9% Uptime Guarantee
  • Excellent Prices

Cons:

  • No Dedicated Servers
  • No Cloud Hosting
