HostPlax Review and Interview
HostPlax is an ultra-cheap hosting provider with Linux shared hosting plans starting at less than $1.00 per month! You will also discover lots of additional types of hosting such as dedicated hosting, VPS, and reseller. So, with HostPlax, you can always be sure you’ll find something affordable that meets your needs.
I was keen to find out more about these incredibly cheap hosting plans so I reached out to HostPlax’s founder to ask him a few questions.
A Fast Support System
HostPlax is dedicated to providing timely responses to its tickets with the average response time being within just 2 hours of reaching out. You can also get in touch via live chat, telephone and WhatsApp, and email. All these combined make HostPlax easily accessible for all customers and prospective customers, which is great to see.
As part of HostPlax’s support system, you will find a knowledgebase which contains useful articles discussing topics such as shared hosting and domains. Not only that, but the company’s blog provides further information and help for businesses and website owners.
The HostPlax team considers its support system to be one of its greatest assets!
Using Sophisticated Technology
Even though HostPlax is a cheap cloud hosting provider, it still uses sophisticated and high-end technology to bring you the best hosting services. This is the response I got when I enquired about the company’s greatest achievements:
“We use high-end cloud servers to ensure customers’ websites remain 24×7 online and our greatest strength is our team who provide great customer support because we believe “Customer satisfaction = success”.
HostPlax makes use of Litespeed servers, Cloudflare w/Railgun, and cPanel for the best low-cost shared hosting experience.
HostPlax offers some impressive plans across multiple hosting types.
Let’s take a look at some of them:
Linux Shared Hosting
HostPlax’s shared web hosting plans are impressively low-priced. At the time of writing this, there is also a 40% discount available, making the cheapest currently only $0.59 per month (normally $0.99)! This is even better than free hosting because not only is it very cheap, but it also comes with a fair amount of features such as a free SSL certificate and an average uptime of 99.9%. Additionally, you will receive free website migration to make things as smooth and easy as possible.
If you purchase this plan, you can expect:
- 1GB SSD cloud disk space
- 20GB bandwidth
- 5 email accounts
Linux Cloud VPS Hosting
If you would rather opt for VPS hosting, you can choose from Linux or Windows, and either cloud server or KVM.
The cloud VPS hosting option is entirely managed and is optimised for hosting WordPress websites. Even though there are set plans to choose from, you also have the ability to add additional resources such as disk space and RAM. This enables a more tailored approach so that you can purchase exactly what you need. Plans are MariaDB ready and you will also receive nightly back-ups.
Reliable, scalable, high-speed, and secure, HostPlax’s cloud VPS hosting is perfect for growing businesses. As you would expect from VPS hosting, the plans here are more expensive than the company’s shared hosting options. The cheapest being $64.95 per month and the most expensive being $124.95 per month. The lowest-priced plan includes:
- 30GB storage
- 2GB RAM
- 10TB bandwidth
- 2 CPU cores
- 1 free dedicated IP
As you can see from these specs, you get a lot of resources for your money.
Registering Your Domain
If you’re looking for a domain registrar, HostPlax is a great choice. The company has a lot of domain extensions to choose from. You will find your usual .com, .blog, and .net, as well as some novelty extensions like .fun and .win.
A .com extension will set you back $11.95 per year, while .fun costs just $5.95 per year.
You can also choose to transfer an existing domain. Prices for this service vary greatly, depending on your extension.
HostPlax Plans To Lead The Way
HostPlax is a great all-rounder when it comes to hosting. Not only does the company have exceptionally low costs, but it also has great customer support and powerful servers. HostPlax plans to lead the way in the hosting industry as being the most affordable with the best possible customer support.
The hosting provider is doing a really good job at this so far and I think that we can expect to see even more great things from the company moving forward.
