This "review" is nothing more than retaliation for us not accepting your order.

When we would not accept your order, you then tried submitting another order using different name and we blocked that order as well.

OK, I moved myself, i m just alerting news customers to not trust in any "life time" coupon published by HOSTMANTIS. Every year this company will create any excuses to avoid this coupon.
HostMantis made the business decision to advertise the service pricing and coupon. This is not the first nor second time HostMantis did this, you know very well what you are doing, Bait&Switch R Us.

Expert Overview

Smaller company with good reputation

HostMantis started is a smaller hosting company focused on solid, reliable hosting plans and customer satisfaction. They have servers in top tier datacenters in North America and Europe to provide global availability. They own all of their own servers which are equipped with multiple core dual Intel Xeon processors with tons of RAM and disk space. All servers are constantly monitored 24x7x365 by in-house and third party administrators, and datacenters feature redundant power, HVAC and fire detection systems. Services from them include shared, Windows, reseller, VPS, and dedicated hosting plans. They also offer domain services and SSL certificates.

Uptime & Reliability

Normal 99.9% uptime guarantee

This company offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee in order to keep your websites up and running 24/7. There seem to be little to no customer issues as there are no negative reviews in their customer feedback section.


Standard hosting features available

Their most basic shared hosting packages start with 1GB of disk space and 5GB of transfer data. This plan also comes with 1 domain, 5 domain aliases and subdomains, and 2FTP accounts and MySql databases. Increased package options come with unlimited domain and database features in addition to having increased disk space and transfer data. Reseller hosting plans start with 10GB of space and 75GB of transfer data, and plans increase from there depending on your personal and business needs. Reseller hosting comes with a lot of unlimited features including unlimited domains, subdomains, FTP accounts, MySQL databases, and email accounts.

VPS hosting plans start with 40GB of storage, 1TB of data transfer, and 1GB of system memory. Additional features include domain reseller options, 1 dedicated IP address, and daily backups. All of their hosting plans have options to pick from where you prefer your server to be located. They have locations in Detroit, Michigan, Los Angeles, California and Amsterdam. They also have domain registration and transfer services.


Overall nice support

Support with this company is offered via a ticketing and live chat system that is available 24/7. Their support section shows that video tutorials, downloads, a knowledgebase and customer forum are also available. Additional support options seem to be available for customers via their control panel and logging into the website.


Very reasonable pricing for hosting - Expensive for domains

Shared Windows and Linux hosting packages start at $1.29 a month for their smallest most basic package.  Reseller hosting options start at $4.96 a month and increase from there depending on what you need as far as disk space and transfer data. Windows VPS hosting packages start at $24.95 a month and increase from there depending on your hosting needs. Linux hosting starts at $14.95 a month with larger plan options costing more.

Domain registration starts at $14.95 a year for a .com, .net, or .org address.  A quick look on their various social media sites shows they are constantly offering various deals and promotions throughout the year. They offer a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with services. Overall, prices seem to be fairly average for what you get feature-wise compared to other hosting options. Domain pricing is a bit on the high end of the range, but a number of their hosting packages have domain registration included.


Not a bad option for most types of sites

HostMantis offers plenty of hosting options with unlimited features, and many promotions and deals throughout the year. Pricing is fair for what features are included and package size options. A heavy customer support system is in place with 24/7 ticketing and live chat support in additional to customer forums, a knowledgebase, and downloads.
