Editor's Review & Recommendation
Founded over 18 years ago, Exabytes has been dominant in the Malaysian web hosting scene for a long time. Although at first glance this host may not seem to offer a lot of the usual freebies, you'll find that they exist if you look closer. The reason for this is that Exabytes builds their plans a little differently than most web hosting providers.
Instead of having the usual few shared-VPS-Cloud plans, Exabytes has built a massive product range that sees a lot of purpose-driven plans. This is both good and bad in some ways. On one hand it helps consumers choose their plan more easily, but on the other hand, users who have more complex needs may find themselves at a loss and having to pay extra here for no real reason.
One example of this is that they do not include a website builder tool in all their plans - which many hosts now offer. If you need a website builder you'll have to opt for a plan specifically designed for that. The good news is that if you do, you get access to Weebly, which is a great rapid site development tool to use.
Over the past few years, Exabytes has also steadily grown into the corporate space and increased its offerings in that area as well. It not has business applications in its repertoire such as Office 365, business email, and even dedicated security products from big names like Sucuri. This has helped it to expand not just locally but across the region into countries such as Indonesia and Singapore.
Exabytes is professional and doesn't resort to constant upsells in their marketing process. However, their sales department can be over-zealous and relentlessly pursue customers - even after they have long gone. After all, they still have your contact details in their database.
