History of Hostinger

Hostinger Web Hosting

To give you an idea of how big Hostinger is, here are some statistics:

the company currently has almost 30 million customers not only in the USA, UK, India and Indonesia, but also in more than 170 countries (almost every single country in the world!).

And there are no signs of stopping; according to their data, Hostinger is still expanding at the rate of 1 customer every 5 seconds.

At the moment Hostinger uses high-performance hardware for websites in different data centres around the world. Respectively, in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Singapore and Indonesia.

An additional datacenter focused on Eastern Europe is planned for the near future.

However, as you can imagine, Hostinger has not always been the international giant it is today.

It started in 2004 as a modest “Hosting Media” in the small and rapidly developing state of Lithuania, located in the northeastern part of the European Union.

The founders of Hostinger did not intend to follow the masses and create another hosting service of any kind, but based the new company on an innovative idea:

People don’t want to pay for our marketing, just for hosting: simple, reliable and as cheap as possible.

Hostinger Plans

Different types of hosting are offered on Hostinger’s official website, each with different prices. This makes choosing one a challenge, as there are also many additional services and features included free of charge depending on the plan.

Before we go into details, however, we need to understand a key concept: the server.

Simply put, it is a specialised computer that collects websites and shows them to your online visitors:

Any hosting is a collection of servers, powerful computers that are optimized to stay online 24 hours a day and show your website to anyone who writes their address on their browser.

Therefore, servers are essentially the main component of any hosting service, and can be used in different ways depending on the client’s requests and budget.

This is where the three types of hosting come into play.

Shared hosting is a basic version for those who have just started or want to test their projects online with minimal expense.

It is called “shared” because each server contains hundreds or even thousands of websites from various clients.

This means that the resources of a single server are used simultaneously by multiple sites, which is great for sites with moderate traffic, but can drastically affect the performance of larger sites.

The good thing is that shared hosting is extremely cheap and very easy to use. This makes it ideal for individuals or small businesses that have just started their journey in the online world.

I think it is important to understand that these are special promotions:

Just to be clear about what we have said before, it is common practice among hosting companies to offer discounted packages to entice people to come in and then to renew prices back to normal.

So there is nothing ambiguous with Hostinger from this point of view.

In any case as you can see also the renewal prices are really low

All three shared plans are equipped with everything you need for a straightforward start, including optimised hardware and software.

Business Shared Hosting
$3.99/mo ($7.95/mo when you renew)

Hostinger Review

The Single plan has very little functionality and computing power that is only sufficient for smaller websites, while the Business plan adds very little benefit compared to the Premium plan while being twice as expensive.

In other words, the Premium plan is the most balanced in terms of functionality, and most importantly, the cheapest with a free domain included.

Also, it’s the cheapest plan that offers automatic backups and you’ll no doubt understand the usefulness of this feature the first time something happens to your website

In conclusion, for most people and small and medium-sized companies the Hostinger Premium Web Hosting plan is the most reasonable choice.

Hostinger Cloud Hosting

Hostinger Review
Hostinger Review Complete

Cloud hosting is more advanced, suitable for larger sites that expect to have medium or high daily traffic (thousands of users per day and above).

Hostinger’s business (cloud) hosting uses what is called cloud technology; your computer resources are not relegated to a specific physical server, but are distributed across multiple computers, which ensures better stability and durability.

This means that your hosting resources are isolated from all other sites in this case, which means higher overall performance compared to shared hosting.

All these benefits have a cost, of course business hosting is significantly more expensive, let’s see in detail:

Hostinger’s cloud has three plans (Cloud Startup, Cloud Professional, Cloud Global) that offer these features:

  • Unlimited Websites
  • Free SSL & Domain
  • Unlimited Bandwidth
  • Dedicated IP Address
  • Dedicated Resources
  • Cloudflare Integration
  • Powerful Control Panel
  • LiteSpeed Cache
  • WordPress Acceleration
  • Github Integration
  • 24/7/365 Support
  • 99.9% Uptime Guarantee
  • DNS Management
  • Cache Manager
  • Daily Backups

Only in the Cloud Global plan will the Easy Website Builder function be added.

Obviously each plan will have different power, let’s see more in detail:

Cloud Startup

  • $9.99/mo
  • 100 GB SSD Storage
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 2 CPU Cores
  • 1X Speed Boost

Cloud Professional

  • $18.99/mo
  • 140 GB SSD Storage
  • 6 GB RAM
  • 4 CPU Cores
  • 2X Speed Boost

Cloud Global

  • $56.99/mo
  • 200 GB SSD Storage
  • 16 GB RAM
  • 8 CPU Cores
  • 4X Speed Boost

WordPress Hosting

Hostinger Review

Like most of the Hostings we have tried Hostinger offers a WordPress plan with 1 click installation, practically all hosts now offer this possibility, but what else can we say about this plan:

As far as disk space is concerned, only Bluehost offers 50Gb, the basic Hostinger plan offers 10Gb.

Now we’ll see specifically what WordPress plans offer, but we can tell you that here too Hostinger offers the lowest prices on the market in this 2020.

Single WordPress Plan
$1.99/mo ($2.99/mo when you renew)
1 Website
1 Email Account
10 GB Disk space

Cloudflare Protected Nameservers

99.9% Uptime Guarantee

The remaining plans (WordPress Starter, WordPress Business, WordPress PRO) all offer the following three features:

  • Free SSL & Domain
  • Managed WordPress
  • Jetpack Free
  • LiteSpeed Cache
  • WordPress Acceleration
  • WooCommerce
  • Cloudflare Protected Nameservers
  • Github Integration
  • 24/7/365 Support

  • DNS Management
  • Unlimited Bandwidth
  • Access Manager
  • Unlimited MySQL Databases
  • 100 Subdomains
  • Unlimited FTP Accounts
  • Unlimited Cronjobs
  • SSH Access
  • Weekly Backups

With the difference that the WordPress Starter Plan costs $2.99 per month (on renewal $3.49) and offers in its plan the possibility to create up to 100 websites and 100 email accounts, it also offers 20 GB of disk space.

This is the offer recommended by Hostinger, but ours is also an excellent middle way, offering excellent resources and stable performance.

The WordPress Business Plan is on offer for $7.99 (on renewal $11.99) and offers the same features as the WordPress Starter plan but with the difference that it has a larger disk space of 100 GB.

The WordPress PRO plan offers the solutions of the WordPress Business Plan with the difference that you can create as many as 300 Websites, this is clearly a plan for professionals.

Its cost is $11.59 (at renewal 15.90).

Hostinger VPS Hosting

Hostinger-Review
Hostinger Review

VPS hosting is the most flexible and complicated type of hosting offered by Hostinger.

The abbreviation stands for “Virtual Private Server”, because in this case a single physical server operates in several individual environments that do not collide with each other.

It’s like having your own server, only it’s a so-called “virtual” machine.

Such a configuration allows maximum flexibility, you can do whatever you want with your virtual server, because you will have an administrator level of control over the whole system.

Which sounds like fun, until you find out that you will get a control panel that is not at all comfortable with a VPS hosting plan. In other words, it’s up to you to organise every part of your virtual server.

That’s why this type of hosting is both very useful for professionals who know exactly what they are doing (as programmers and web developers) and practically useless for anyone else.

All Hostinger’s VPS Hosting plans offer Dedicated IP and Full Root Access,

Let’s see in detail the prices and features of these six plans offered by Hostinger:

1 vCPU2 vCPU3 vCPU
$3.95/Mo (at renewal $9.95)$8.95/Mo (at renewal $19.95)$12.95/Mo (at renewal $39.95)

Domain Names Offers

Hostinger-Review
Hostinger Review

Before we present you with Hostinger’s offers regarding domain names, we would like to give you a few useful tips when choosing a name for those who are just starting out:

Make your domain name memorable. Keep your domain name short. Domain Checker will help you find the one that suits you best!

Make it relevant to your audience. Target keywords in domain names are important. Search the domain extension with the Domain Checker.

Avoid hyphens and numbers, do not use Non-Unicode characters in your domain names. Think of the domain name as an investment! Afterwards, a good domain name can be worth a fortune.

Use the Domain Checker & find domains with the most popular keywords. Protect your brands by purchasing the same name and variants with the most popular domain extensions.

Found the right one? Act fast! General rule – all the best domain names sell very quickly.

.tech $0.99 (Renewal $35.99).com $8.99 (Renewal 10.99)
.online $0.99 (Renewal $25.99).xyz $0.99 (Renewal $11.99)
.link $1.99 (Renewal $10.50).live $3.50 (Renewal $17.99)
.me $6.45 (Renewal $15.99).group $3.99 (Renewal $9.99)
Domain Names Offers

Hostinger allows you to register domain names free of charge, however, it is worth keeping in mind that there are special terms for these offers and several conditions that must be respected:

The free domain offer is only valid for initial purchases of Premium or Business hosting plans.

You will need to choose at least one annual billing plan to activate the promotion during checkout.

The main domain name will be automatically renewed at the normal price.

If you already have a Hostinger hosting account, you can purchase many popular domain extensions separately for a price close to 0 (0.99€).

The domain areas currently included in this range as you can see above include .online, .link, .tech, and .xyz an interesting choice for those of us looking for convenience.

If, on the other hand, you already have a domain name somewhere else, you can always connect it with Hostinger and use their hosting services for that domain.

However, experience suggests that buying both domains and hosting from the same provider is a hassle-free solution;

centralised billing is simple and, frankly, the whole process of directing an external domain to your hosting can become quite complicated.

Hostinger Customer Support

Hostinger-Review
Hostinger Review

You can ask the Hostinger team for help at any time of the day, 24 hours a day, through the chat which is located in the lower right corner of the hosting administrator panel.

The response time on some requests we made was superfast (usually a few seconds), and the Hostinger representative was always friendly, and helpful.

They even use pictures of kittens to cheer you up while you wait for them to write the answer.

In addition to live chat, there are free libraries of useful articles about all Hostinger’s products and services.

You can find them by clicking on the “Help” link in the top menu of the hosting control panel. It also contains a list of frequently asked questions; there is a good chance that your problem can already be solved from there.

In general, Hostinger has managed to exceed our expectations in terms of support quality, especially since their hosting is really cheap.
