Editor's Review & Recommendation
With many major web hosting companies being based out of the US, it is refreshing to see a success story from Lithuania. Hostens product lines cover web hosting, domain names, and security products in very clear offerings.
Hostens has its servers in Lithuania, Singapore and the US which gives its users a good strategic scope to choose from. They are obviously targeted at the budget-oriented crowd. Shared hosting plans start from an extremely modest $.90 per month and cap off at $3.60.
The surprise in their repertoire comes in the form of their VPS hosting plans which enter at a mind-boggling $1.80 per month. This is nearly unheard of and despite very minimal capacity in resources on those plans, can be considered a steal. It’s important to note that is you need the use of a control panel like Plesk or cPanel, prices shoot up.
Unusually for a web hosting provider, Hostens also has a VPN that is affordable as well. But this is rather dampened by the fact that all their VPS plans have limited bandwidth for use. As a whole, a decent provider which doesn’t over-promise on its products.
