Hostinger Web Hosting Review 2022

Topic: “Hostinger Web Hosting Review 2022” Hostinger, which used to be called Hosting Media, is a well-known web host that offers cloud, VPS, and shared hosting. Since 2011, when it changed its name, it has given Bluehost a run for its money. This Hostinger review discusses how it has reasonable prices, an easy-to-use interface, and good performance.

What is Hostinger?

Hostinger is an independent European company that has grown quickly in just over ten years. The company that owns them also owns the brands 000Webhost, Niagahoster, and Weblink. Hostinger, like most hosting companies, offers email, a website builder, and several other services.

Support is ready 24 hours a day, and you can get your money back within 30 days. Several of my readers sent me emails asking what I thought of Hostinger, so I decided to try them out for a small project.

Pros

  • 100 GB of bandwidth in a single plan.
  • Shared hosting plans for as many websites as you want with as much bandwidth as you want
  • Plans with 100 subdomains or more come with unlimited email accounts.
  • You can have as many MySQL and FTP accounts as you want
  • There are specialized WordPress plans
  • Apps installer SSD disc drives
  • All plans let you install WordPress with one click.
  • There is a free library of plugins for WordPress, including WooCommerce.
  • You can pay with PayPal or a credit card.

Cons

  • It costs more to use a website builder.
  • There is no plan with unlimited disc space.
  • Cloudflare CDN is free only for the first site on a hosting account with more than one site.
  • Not always can you get help through live chat?
  • Compared to other hosts, it takes a long time for web pages to be sent.

Hostinger’s pricing and shared hosting plans

For shared hosting, Hostinger has three plans:

  • Single Shared Hosting
  • Premium Shared Hosting
  • Business Shared Hosting

With the Premium and Business Shared Hosting plans, each account can host as many domains as it wants. This is a small bit misleading because it doesn’t mean that each account can host an unlimited number of websites since each account only has so much storage space.

The limit is 20 GB with the Premium plan and 100 GB with the Business plan. This isn’t as good as what many of Hostinger’s major competitors offer, unlimited storage. This means that each account holder could host an unlimited number of websites.

Shared plan costs

Hostinger offers three service period options, and their prices for shared plans are as follows:

Single Shared Host

  • One month costs $9.99 plus $4.99 for set up.
  • One year is $35.88 ($2.99 per month)
  • Two years: $38.16 ($1.59 a month)
  • Four years: 47.52 dollars (0.99 dollars a month)

Shared Premium Hosting

  • One month costs $10.99 plus $4.99 to set up.
  • One year is $71.88, which is $5.99 each month.
  • Two years: $95.76 ($3.99 a month)
  • Four years: $138.72 ($2.89 a month)

Businesses Shared Hosting

  • One month costs $15.99 plus $4.99 for set up.
  • One year is $83.88 ($6.99 per month)
  • Two years: $190.80 ($4.99 a month)
  • Four years: $191.52 ($3.99 a month)

There is an introductory discount built into these prices.

SEO and marketing features

Hostinger’s marketing and SEO package can be added to any shared hosting plan for $9.99 per month. The name of this is SEO Toolkit PRO.

Uptime

Your hosting guarantees that your site will be up 99.9% of the time each month. The company backs up this promise by saying that if it doesn’t meet this goal, the subscription fee for that month will be lowered by 5%. The credit is not given on its own. Each customer must call customer service and ask for it. The host can only say whether or not the company has met the uptime goal.

Speed

To test the response time, we made a sample page of text and put it on a Hostinger-hosted site as a WordPress page. We checked the load time with Google’s PageSpeed Insights, a diagnostic tool for web developers that gives a score based on how fast a page loads on mobile devices and desktops.

Account Safety

The security of shared hosting plans is kept safe because no user can access the operating system. Hostinger has changed the popular control panel system cPanel works so that it can handle all of the file management tasks that would normally require access to the operating system.

Content protection

Let’s Encrypt, and a certificate authority gives each shared server plan one free SSL certificate. The Cloudflare content delivery network (CDN) copies web pages and stores them on servers worldwide. This speeds up delivery and adds a backup plan in case the main server goes down.

It also takes in any actions taken by hackers, like DDoS attacks. Cloudflare is free for people who use Business Shared Hosting. Customers with Premium Shared Hosting get it free for one site. The service is offered to all other hosting plan accounts for $9.95.

Domain owner’s privacy

The title and address of the holder of a domain name must be registered and made public through the global WHOIS database. Instead of a street address, the email can be an email address. But the current owner still has to be out there, which can be a problem for some. For a fee of $5 per year per domain, Hostinger will change the name on the WHOIS register to that of a different company and conceal the customer’s name.

Email Protection

Every email address you set up in your Hostinger account has an automatic spam filter. So that false positives don’t happen, emails marked as Spam don’t get completely blocked from an account. Instead, they are sent to a folder called Spam.

Speed and Performance

Before we start our review, we should talk about how fast and well Hostinger works. That will give you an idea of how well it works. We used Pingdom’s tool to see how well our test site would do in the website speed test.

As you can view above, our test site loads in one second, even though it is not well optimized. We also used GTMetrix to find out how well the website worked. It worked great on our test site, which wasn’t very well optimized. Overall, we’re very happy with how fast and well Hostinger’s website hosting works.

If you have a new website or one that gets a fair amount of traffic, Hostinger’s servers can handle and run it quickly and well. But if you have a website that gets a lot of traffic, you should consider their VPS hosting because their VPS servers can easily handle high-traffic websites.

Hostinger’s customer support

Live chat support is advertised on the Hostinger sales page. But this doesn’t come up very often. Customers can talk to the customer support team instead by filling out a form on the Help Center page. Replies are sent to the customer’s registered email address. It can take up to two hours to get an answer to a question.

Conclusion

I thought Hostinger hosting was good for what it is. If you have a small website, it will work well and won’t cost you much. And if you’re not in the US, they’re a good choice because their data centers are closer to where your audience is.

Let’s say the price is the most important thing to you, and you don’t care about the plan’s limitations. Hostinger is the best website host if you want a cheap shared hosting company with prices almost the same as the introductory but better long-term prices and a better product.
