HawkHost Review

HawkHost Review Summary

HawkHost offers some excellent features for shared hosting plans and does so at very low prices. This is true even for their renewal rates which don't spike horribly after your term is up. Despite their lack of dedicated servers, you can still sale up with them thanks to strong VPS and Cloud hosting plans.

Editor's Review & Recommendation

Having been in the web hosting industry of around 12 years, HawkHost is a veteran and has slowly been adjusting their plans to reflect this. Following trends they now offer unlimited resources except in their most basic shared plans that cap storage space at a mere 10GB. However, for the price you pay, you get fairly decent features.

The first and foremost among those features is access to the Weebly website builder. This excellent drag-and-drop website building tool is pretty good and for the price yous tart off with on HawkHost, an excellent buy. That means that even newbies can start off on this host with minimal issues.

Aside from that you also get a free SSL, although to include a complimentary domain name as well might be asking a bit too much of HawkHost. Once past that, users who manage to grow their sites also have a very clear upgrade path with detailed plans to guide them along the way. Shared hosting plan users can move on to semi-dedicated hosting and from there on to VPS or even Cloud plans. Unfortunately, HawkHost doesn't offer dedicated servers. 

One big plus point in their favor is that they offer a very strong selection of data center choices. HawkHost has server presence in seven locations across the world including key places such as New York, Amsterdam, and Singapore. This gives customers a great deal of flexibility when it comes to region-specific visitor targeting.

Unfortunately there is limited information on developer support, so one can only assume that such environments will only come into play for their VPS plans and above.
