Hostinger Hosting Review: Is It Fast? Worth Buying?

BASIC INFORMATION

Hostinger was founded in Lithuania in 2004 and reached the one million user milestone in 2011. Since then, Hostinger has grown to include several subsidiary companies; powered by data centers in seven countries, the company and its affiliates now serve over 29 million users, with over 10,000 new signups every day.

WORDPRESS HOSTING

Hostinger offers four different types of hosting: shared, WordPress, cloud, and VPS. Shared and cloud hosting are the cheapest and most beginner-friendly options, WordPress hosting is excellent for blogging, while VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting is best suited for larger sites that demand more resources.

Hostinger mentions on its website that the company offers e-commerce hosting. They cover the Magento and PrestaShop platforms, as well as the WooCommerce plugin for WordPress.Note that these offerings are basically a rebranding of the WordPress/shared hosting plans, but with slight software, changes to support the specific e-commerce tool.

SHARED HOSTING

Hostinger’s shared hosting plans are suitable for those just getting started with a small website and who need a budget-friendly option.

There are three plans, with prices beginning at $0.99 per month.

The cheapest option, called Single Shared Hosting, gets you to support for 1 website and email account.

You’ll get 10 GB of SSD storage space on 1 MySQL database and weekly backups, and you’ll be able to support up to 100 GB of bandwidth.

VPS HOSTING

VPS Hosting gets you powerful servers built for speed, but since this is Hostinger we’re talking about, you won’t break the bank for any of these plans. The VPS options are best for those who need a lot of resources to serve their site quickly and are comfortable with the management required of such plans. In addition to getting a dedicated IP address, VPS hosting users get full root access (which allows you a greater degree of control over your environment), and SSDs (solid-state drives).

CLOUD HOSTING

Cloud hosting is a relatively new type of web hosting service. The cloud hosting plans provided by Hostinger is a step above the shared options. Let’s take a closer look at what each cloud plan offers.

Cloud Startup

Starting at $9.99 per month (renews at $15.90) 3 GB of RAM 40 GB of SSD storage 2 CPU cores

Cloud Professional

Starting at $18.99 per month (renews at $31.80) 6 GB of RAM 80 GB of SSD storage 4 CPU cores

Cloud Enterprise

Starting at $35.99 per month (renews at $71.55) 12 GB of RAM 160 GB of SSD Storage 6 CPU cores

PROS AND CONS

The Hostinger administrative dashboard is super easy to use. It’s very straightforward, even if you don’t have much experience with the web hosting or managing a website.

Hostinger is cheap. So if you want a low-cost web host, this is a logical place for you to start. But keep in mind that like most web hosts, Hostinger has some tricks and ploys when it comes to their pricing.

For the most part, cPanel is the industry standard in web hosting. So if you’re used to using cPanel, then you may be a bit frustrated using Hostinger’s version.

Premium, Business, Cloud, and VPS plans come with a free domain name. But if you’re planning to use Hostinger to host more than one website, you’ll need to pay for additional registrations.

All Hostinger plans come with a free domain and website builder. So for those of you who are building a new website from scratch, you can take advantage of Hostinger’s easy to use drag and drop builder.

SHOULD YOU USE THEM?

Hostinger is one of the better hosting companies, there is no wrong choice for joining them, but NameHero and SiteGround. will be a better choice.
