Hostiso

Hostiso is a privately owned web hosting firm that provides web hosting services like shared, VPS and dedicated hosting as well as domain migration and transfers.

What’s the story?

Hostiso is a small private hosting company that offers a wide range of hosting services such as shared hosting, VPS hosting and dedicated servers with top-notch security and support.

They have multiple data centers all around continent namely in the United States, Canada, Europe as well as Asia.

Their mission is to give their customers the best service and support which is managed by a team of experts with 20 years of experience in the field.

Besides, their vision is to build a successful business relationship with their customers by understanding their needs and providing first-rate support based on that mutual understanding.

What's so special about Hostiso

Being a privatized company is considered a very rare case in the industry but Hostiso managed to do that with their small team.

Moreover, they have different servers located in different parts of the world which is something to boast about.

Because in theory the closeness of the servers and people who are trying to reach it, is an important factor for better web performance.

So how will they do? Can a small group of dedicated experts keep up with other famous hosting brands in a fight to support a global customer base.

To find out about this, we purchased their cheapest shared hosting plan and started a basic WordPress website.

Let’s get started with this Hostiso review and see if they have what it takes to be the top web hosting company in Malaysia.

Pros of Hostiso

In this Hostiso review, we’ll find out how a privatized company who’s still small in size hold up in an industry full of old and experienced timers.

Good news is that they were able to support most of their claims , having strong uptime for most of their data centers.

Not only that, they are very generous in their features as the basic shared hosting plan comes with premium features.

Let’s get the Hostiso review started.

1. Strong and Reliable Uptime 

The first thing you’ll notice about them is their strong and reliable uptime. They are able to provide as such because of their high bandwidth and low latency network.

This is due to the fact that they have a dedicated 100 GB capacity server to handle overflowing amount of traffic.

They quickly asserted control by assuring customers that they are one of the best in providing reliable uptime against other competitors in the industry.

A good thing is that their uptime was strong for most of the data centers as it saw a perfect 100% while only having a slight dropped in one data center in Asia.

Their total average uptime is a about 99.99%.

Average uptime in different countries:

  • Canada: 100%
  • France: 100%
  • Germany: 100%
  • Singapore: 99.99%

Most of the time an uptime of 100% is seen with only one at 99%. Based on our Hostiso review, this is one of the best uptime compared to the other web hosts we reviewed. So Hostiso is truly one of the top web hosting companies with a strong uptime.

2. 24/7 Customer Support 

When compared to the other web hosting companies,  Hostiso may be smaller but they make that up with their compelling customer support.

Their next advantage as a small team is their customer support which is not only fast but also friendly and funny.

They can provide assistance in updating your software, monitoring your server’s performance and setting it up correctly.

There are 2 ways to reach their customer support.

  • Live chat
  • Ticketing support portal (usually takes 15 mins to 1 hour)

From this Hostiso review it can be seen that a small company still puts in effort to attend to the needs of their customers.

3. 60 Days Money Back Guaranteed 

In our Hostiso review, we found out that they have quite a long money back guarantee period.

This money back guaranteed is a premium feature yet it is included in all their package plans.

They will provide a full 60 days for you to claim your money back. Which means you can use their service for more than a month to try out their services or test out their services like how we did it.

This 60 day money back guarantee is definitely one of the longest we’ve ever seen after reviewing so many web hosts.

In other words, it proves that Hostiso is very dedicated in their work to provide the best service to their customers.

4. Free Backups!

Sometimes you’ll bump into some problems with your site and this is a risk for your site’s data.

But fret not, this is not a problem if you’re using Hostiso. Why?

Although we bought their cheapest plan they offer a free premium back up feature. That is something amazing as it’s not only free but a premium feature as well!

Normally, other web hosts will charge for this feature but Hostiso provides this free of charge.

Their free backups can be done daily, weekly or monthly. So you get to choose for when your backup happens.

Best of all, all this feature is included in all their plans. Definitely worth your money.

5. Free Cloudflare CDN

Hostiso’s basic plan comes with a free premium feature which is Cloudflare content delivery network (CDN).

The purpose of  their CDN is for you to distribute your content around the globe so that it’s nearer to your site visitors as well as speeding up your website.

Normally, other cloud hosting companies don’t even provide this feature in their plans.

However, you’ll definitely have to spend a few extra from your pocket if they do provide it.

Due to this, Hostiso is one of the best cloud hosting choices for businesses to build their website or migrate their website to their servers.

6. Free Managed Migration

If you have a site in the World Wide Web and want to move it to their service, Hostiso will do it for you.

Hostiso will not only move your entire site with the help of their expert team but also provide free managed migration which manages transfers quickly.

Included inside the move are all your files, databases and email.

Not to mention, this is also a free service. How convenient!

7. Free Domain Transfer

This is not a joke!

Sign up with any Hostiso package plan to get a free domain transfer.

After reviewing so many top hosting websites, Hostiso is the only who provides customers with freemium (free and premium) feature.

After that, what happens?

Once your transfer is completed, you won’t have to to worry about payment as Hostiso will cover your domain renewal for one year, all for free.

Based on our Hostiso review, they provide lots of freemium features for all their plans and this is such a great deal.

8. Reasonable Pricing

You would think after all those amazing freemium features the pricing would be a let down but worry not as Hostiso’s pricing are reasonable.

They have 2 different pricing – monthly and yearly. Below are their pricing. (rounded off)

  • Monthly
  • Basic SSD: $6.99 (RM28.77)
  • Business SSD: $9.99 (RM41.10)
  • Pro SSD: $14.99 (RM61.70)

 

  • Yearly
  • Basic SSD: $3.99 (RM16.30)
  • Business SSD: $6.99 (RM28.75)
  • Pro SSD: $9.99 (RM41.10)

As you can see from our Hostiso review their pricing is quite affordable. We recommend you to get their annually plans if you’re playing to use their service.

Cons of Hostiso

This is quite a surprise as there is only one con in using their services and it’s a very minor.

We’ll see what kind of con this near perfect web host has.

Let’s look at their con in this Hostiso review.

1. Lack of Data Center Locations 

Hostiso had an impressive start in this Hostiso review with their excellent uptime and we hoped that it continued that way.

However, something they lack is the number of centers they have located around the world.

As mentioned, they have 4 different data centers around the continent which are Canada, France, Germany and Singapore.

Depending on where you’re located, you might be using their server which is from the closest data center so with greater distance it affects the speed.

Nevertheless, this is only a small setback, as mentioned their server uptime is near perfect with 100% so you don’t have to worry about the distance between you and their data centers so much.
