HostRound Review


HostRound LLC was founded in 2016 and is a web hosting company based in Delaware, USA.  HostRound has 3 data centers, two in the US and one in the Netherlands, offering Dedicated Servers, VPS and shared web hosting packages.

As well as providing hosting, they have an informative blog for those wanting to find out more about topics such as “The Differences Between Shared, VPS, and Dedicated Hosting”.  On checking out their reviews we found them to have a lot of happy five-star customer reviews online, specifically when it comes to their WordPress Hosting and knowledgeable customer support.

A Fantastic Solution for Bloggers

We feel that HostRound is a great solution for bloggers (especially in the US) as HostRound has become known for its hassle free WordPress Hosting.  Their WP hosting offers 1-Click installation and super-fast page load times.

When blogging, online data is everything, therefore HostRound’s free daily, weekly and monthly backup service is invaluable.  If there was ever an issue with hacking or any other programming issue, customers can feel safe in the knowledge that their content can be retrieved, should that ever be required.

What Customers are Saying

For a young company (just 2 years young) HostRound has some great customer reviews online.  Most of the customers are raving about how great the WordPress hosting is in particular.  When using their servers for WordPress sites, customers report how fast their updates appear and that the pages load extremely quickly.

They proudly focus on offering genuine 24/7 professional customer support.  Their engineers are available around the clock to make sure that they do everything in their power to help customers succeed.

HostRound: Pricing

The prices for hosting are quite competitive.  After reading their reviews, customers seem very happy with the quality of service that they are getting for a relatively low price.

HostRound: Stability

HostRound states on their website that they have “Amazing Uptime” and that they have had 100%  uptime in the past 6 months.  This statement has not been challenged in any review, as clients consistently say that they are very impressed with the speed and stability of their websites that experience no downtime.

HostRound: Security

Should your website ever be hacked, HostRound have you covered.  They boast “Highly Secured Servers”,  with enhanced firewall & mod security rules.  They also employ other security tools like CXS that completely secure your site from hacks and suspicious files, as well as free DDoS mitigation.  If all else fails (which is doubtable) they will have a backup so that you can reinstate your site in no time.

In addition to all of the above, they provide free SSL Certificates.  This further ensures the security of your site by providing secure and encrypted information exchange

Pro’s

All of the hosting is administered via cPanel, which is the leading industry control panel.  Allowing easy customization of your websites.

Money Back Guarantee

HostRound offers a full 30-day money back guarantee to gives peace of mind to new customers.  This is available on their shared hosting and WordPress hosting packages and allows new customers to start their new website with ease, knowing that if they are not 100% happy then they can always get a full refund.

Awesome Discounts

Great Customer Support

The customer support with HostRound is brilliant.  They offer around the clock live support via their online help desk as well as various points of contact for others to get in touch to discuss their services, such as billing and legal.  We found a lot of customers who were very happy with the customer service provided with HostRound.  In addition to this, we found the staff to be very approachable and friendly.

Con’s

No FREE Domain Name

There is no free domain name given with the “basic” shared hosting.  This is often a great thing to provide new customers who don’t know much about hosting.  This could prevent some people from entering the online market space due to not knowing much about hosting or domain names.

Metered Servers

Most of the servers on HostRound have  a limit to how much traffic you can have on your website.  This is  however not a problem if you select one of their Unmetered Dedicated servers or VPS.
