Best budget-friendly host
I am a HostArmada customer since when they started business. It is fast, reliable, and affordable to all budget types. Earlier, I was using WPX Hostin...
g, a premium WordPress hosting service. Then, I shifted to HostArmada's unlimited hosting plan. User friendly customer support is another advantage. Contacted their customer support a couple of times & they solved my issues in a few minutes. I highly recommend HostArmada to bloggers, agencies, and businesses.

Great service for novice webmaster, just what our small NFP veterans' association needed.

Full of misleading information, hidden policies and marketing tricks.
I'm checking this company for about 5 days now or even more. I've heard of them from a developer who recommended them "from the bottom of his heart". ...
I was impressed to hear somebody recommending a company like that so I started to have a couple of pre-sales chats with them. Maybe I was lucky but on all my chats, Sebahat was the one that assisted me. From the start, I will say that she deserve 5 stars for the offered support, this review had nothing to do with her, she was amazing. The ugly part and this review is related to the company HostArmada and their hidden policies and marketing tricks. I'm not a hater and had no intention to write this review but saw on their website the HostAdvice badge and that's how I ended up here. I've decided to write this review for other people like me, and help their journey when thinking to host their websites with HostArmada. Here are the most concerning things that I've discovered while checking HostArmada plans: 1. not all their plans use LiteSpeed; 2. even if they offer 4 or 6 CPUs on their shared hosting, PAY attention they will not let you to consume them all, all the time, you are limited. Basically they give you 6CPU but in reality that's just marketing you can't use them all 3. they disabled any kind of backup feature in cPanel so if you think to create a backup on your own, forget about it, you will not be able to do it. they say this was disabled for server performance (we all know is not true, is just a technique to make it harder to migrate away) 4. they say they will offer you a full cPanel backup for free if you ask about that, BUT if your plan is too big 20+ GB they will not do it so all it remains to you is FTP which we all know is super super slow; 5. they have huge introductory pricing, so pay attention at renewal you might pay X3 TIMES MORE; 6. for their most expensive plan they offer only 5 FREE migrations, for the middle one only 3 so PAY ATTENTION if you have more than 3 or 5 websites, you will have to pay extra. These are all the most important aspects you should have in mind before placing an order with them. Read carefully their terms, their website is full of marketing tricks PAY ATTENTION and read everything twice! NOTE: everything I'm writing here, it was confirmed by them in LiveChat. In the end I decided to chose a different hosting company and forget about HostArmada. I'm sure these aspect I've written above are not a big deal for everyone, but for me is very very important to host my business with a company that uses marketing tricks and hidden policies AS LESS AS POSSIBLE.
