Hostinger Review

Hostinger Review Summary

Don’t be fooled by the low sign-up prices that Hostinger is boasting, this is far from your average budget host. They excel in both speed and uptime performance which is hard to come by at this entry point price tag. Be aware though that renewal prices can hit your bottom line.

Editor's Review & Recommendation

With excellent statistics in both performance and uptime (updates: Hostinger uptime dropped to 0 in our chart due to an SSL error at our test site), Hostinger is already a great candidate as a web hosting choice. It also has a wide range of services which adds good value as well. For product line, they offer everything from domain names to any kind of hosting you might need so there’s no worry about having to shift host when your site grows. In ancillary services, users can also benefit from a free website builder.

I feel that Hostinger may sometimes get the short end of the stick since many people who assess them are likely be surprised at the prices. With shared hosting plans starting from as little as $0.99 per month, it can be easy to mistake them for an inferior hosting company with lesser product quality.

The reality is sadly a double-edged sword. Hosting offers extremely competitive value at those prices because it is certainly no slouch in performance or features. The sad part is that once the sign-up honeymoon period is over, their prices renew at significantly higher rates.

Still, think of it as having a good honeymoon with a great partner rather than think of the pain of renewal.

In terms of cost, some would consider Hostinger a little high up on the scale but considering what they offer I think it is a fair price, especially combined with sign-on discounts and the anytime money-back guarantee.

Hostinger User Satisfaction

    "Hostinger is good for price"

    One day I enquired about Hosting plans and I need to host my new site. But for my simple query they took around 18 hours to reply. I was shocked and the representative replied to me that if you need more websites to host within the current plan you have to upgrade to premium, which was not what I am expecting to hear from them.

    I thought about what kind of support they are providing, even though for simple query they couldn’t answer well. I escalated this issue to the next level and got cleared my doubts within 1hour.

    So my point is sometimes we have to make noise in order to get good support. All are humans and need guidance to make steps. I still recommend them because they are providing the best pricing to their hosting spaces. For support, you have to take care and monitor them well.

    "Good affordable solution"

    I have been using hostinger for a year now and haven’t faced any issues. I started as a newbie but never faced any issues. Customer service is always great.

    "Looking for lesser budget hosting Go for Hostinger"

    I would love to suggest Hostiner because it is the best and cheap hosting provider with a reputation. I just purchased their basic plan to check out the service and response for the support query.

    One day my website crashed completely and facing some slowness in loading the DB and all. After all, I have given several tickets they responded very slowly.

    I have prepared a thorough mail for the service and asked to re-attach their chat support in the control panel.

    After the review through their FB page and mail, they have changed the server for me within 1 hr.

    Then I found amazing results for loading the site and no issue reported hereafter. We have to cry for the support and you have to do it for your sake.

    The chat support is taking some time lag, otherwise, they are good. For a beginner, it can opt for sure.

    "Highly Reccomended Web Hosting Company"

    I tried several hosting companies including the industry leaders and popular web hosting companies such as Hostgator, Godaddy, Justhost etc. Hostinger offers a similar service at a very affordable (I MUST SAY CHEAP) rate. I must say that so far, their uptime has been 100% for me (since the day I signed up). Their customer service is prompt and helpful. I am hosting my tiny startup’s website and I can pay Monthly! Very convenient.

    They are great at helping me in every step of the way, and they offer amazing prices! I’d definitely recommend and I’ll be using them for my future clients. I have just started in the web designing world and they have been extremely helpful. That’s life changing!

    "Exceeded expectations "

    Being a novice is hard enough when starting out, however one thing I have learnt whilst starting my online journey is to partner yourself with experts and in this case Hostinger has more than delivered on several occasions.

    "Hostinger rocks!!!"

    I have had a number of hosting packages in the past and I was a bit nervous at the cool discouts offered by Hostinger as usually cheap is not often cheerful. However, I have had excellent service with them. They answer all my questions and usually solve my problems. So, far it has been a really great experience and i recommend them to everynone.

    "Quick AF support!"

    Read great reviews, saw cheap prices, decided to go for it, and…not disappointed! Great service with very, very quick, and helpful staff.

    "Limited supports "

    I signed up nearly one month ago and could not get the email accounts work after many trials. In general, their supports are good but sometime very hard to get hold of, leaving my online inquiries unattended for a long time. We have not yet set up our website and only tried emails. It appears our Outlook clients (versions from 2007+) do not completely match their servers and cannot download or pull the emails from their servers.

    No, don't recommend
