Editor's Review & Recommendation

Hostens comes across as a very solid service provider with excellent prices. Prices start at an astonishing $0.90 on their shared hosting plans. Unless you’re looking at a free host, not many others will clock in at these prices.

Despite that, they still offer some freebies such as free domain name, Let’s Encrypt SSL, and daily/weekly backups. Impressively, they haven’t even skimped on hardware, with even the cheapest plans being hosted on full-SSD servers.

If you’re thinking where the catch might be, so far there are few to really complain about. The biggest challenge to hosting with them will be the bandwidth limitation imposed on all plans.

For Newbies and Individual Bloggers

There are many reasons to recommend Hostens for newbies. The first is of course their exceptional cheap pricing. More than that however is that their system is extremely user-friendly. Application installation or SSL deployment is extremely easy.
