Overview

Back in 2004, a few people in Lithuania had a mission to create powerful web hosting services available for everybody free of charge. The creators found alternative ways to maximize hosting services at a low price, thus 000webhost was born.

Some years later, the company expanded, and Hostinger came to be and grew to be one of the biggest hosting providers in the world. By January 2019 it had over 29 million active users, with over 20 thousand new signups every single day.

Hostinger has over 500 employees across international offices located in Lithuania, Cyprus, Indonesia and Brazil.

Hostinger owns several locations for their servers, scattered throughout Europe, Asia, and the US, ensuring good uptime and fast speed worldwide. All Hostinger servers are protected by daily or weekly backups, RAID-10 and multiple levels of fail-safes.

In case of an emergency, Hostinger can restore all of your accounts and lost data in a matter of minutes.

Features

hPanel

The hPanel was developed to help customers control every single aspect of their hosting services. The interface lets users easily find everything from domain details to emails and file managers.

When you go to your dashboard, you will immediately find all the necessary functions:

  • Hosting accounts
  • Domains
  • VPS services
  • Emails
  • Websites
  • Databases
  • File manager services
  • DNS options

The hPanel interface is sleek-looking and easy to navigate. All functions are accessible in just a few clicks. And should you run into trouble – the live chat is available 24/7/365.

Website Builder

Hostinger offers custom website builder – Zyro. While it is still in Beta, you can already create a website with its intuitive drag and drop interface.

Email Services

Like all hosting providers, Hostinger offers a free email service with all purchased plans and business email hosting solution. The number of inboxes you can host vary by plan.

Domain Registration

The domain name is an essential element of any website. Hostinger is certified by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), meaning you can trust them with this important step.

The prices vary depending on the top-level domain. They cost as low as 0.99$!

What is more, annual premium and business shared hosting, VPS hosting and cloud hosting plans all come with free domain registration for the first year.

SSL

Online security is one of the most important key features of a successful website. Especially now, when the lack of SSL is highlighted next to your URL.

With Hostinger you can get an SSL certificate for $11.95. However, it comes free with annual business shared hosting plans.

Cloud hosting users get free SSL with every purchase.

BitNinja DDoS protection

BitNinja is one of the best server protection services on the web. It constantly monitors incoming and outgoing connections to block DDoS attacks.

This improves the overall uptime of Hostinger's services, in addition to securing its customers’ data.

Cloudflare CDN

A websites' loading speed can heavily impact the amount of traffic you get. If your website doesn’t load in four seconds or less, chances are visitors will click away.

CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) speed up your website, helping avoid these problems. Cloudflare also provides additional protection against DDoS attacks.

Getting CloudFlare will cost you $9.95.

SEO Tools

Hostinger provides users with detailed analytics of their SEO performance. You get helpful tips and insights on how to improve SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

The tool kit costs $9.99/mo.

August 30, 2016 Only third level domains are free on the Free plan. What a waste of time, I need premium domains for free!

August 10, 2016 My son today told me about how he wants to build his website to share his opinions about video games with friends (seemed crazy to hear that from a 10 year old boy), thought he would forget this idea in the same day, yet after a week he would invite me to look at his computer and would show me his website, I was simply shocked when I saw the outcome. A professionally looking website! He told me that he found hosting provided for free on your website, simply followed the tutorials and there you go, a great website. So I bought him the Premium plan so that he could continue his education and encouraged to continue building and learning, he’s been doing that ever since and wants to become a developer. Thank you guys for inspiring kids to do great things, really, thanks.

July 20, 2016 I used to be one of those who didn’t understand the difference between pad and shared hostings, yup I would read the reviews online and blame the service for being bad and wouldn’t accept the fact that free option only works for learning, testing or some kind of very small project. So I would like to apologize for giving negative feedback is some Internet portals. When guys who have experience in webhosting made a fool out of me in forums I finally got the point. Now I know how hosting works and thank you for providing great services. Sorry again.

June 20, 2016 Some time ago I signed up with them for the Free plan, since I believe that you have to test the quality of the services before you start giving money to someone. In the beginning, everything worked well and I found the cpanel to be easy to use and created my blog in several minutes. After some time, when I would start getting traffic, my site would start failing and I thought that I should quit them. Contacted the support staff and they told me that I have to optimize my account or upgrade. Turns out I still make rookie mistakes LOL. Fixed my account, yet had to upgrade later. Wish I would have upgraded sooner since Premium plan is a lot better, I get many more advantages, such as plenty more disk space and can have more than websites. Still glad that I didn’t rush into things and didn’t quit. Keep up the great work.

June 2, 2016 Free plan doesn’t provide 350+ software auto installs that I have used on another paid hosting. The offer only few and most popular auto installs, like Wordpress. But I need more rare scripts here. Not planning to give them my money if they don’t give it all for free.

May 18, 2016 I would like to share one great thing that happened to me today. Yet the great thing happened due to a bad thing. Today I completely ruined my site. No idea how I managed to do that, but managed, I thought that I have lost all the work that I did during the last several years. After a huge panic attack I contacted the Customer Support staff and this guy, Gerald, really helped he. He restored my site, calmed me down and wished me a good day. From now on, I have my own personal hero - Gerald.

April 27, 2016 I’ve started blogging not so long ago and was not very IT literate back at that moment so a friend let me use her account and create a subdomain in which I could learn how WordPress works, that was the moment when I first used Hostinger services and really liked them. All the plugins you can install with a click of a button. After a week of playing around I decided to purchase the Premium plan since it was the one I used and really liked it, great features and I really enjoy the possibility of not having a limit put on the number of websites that I can host. Also my site loads extremely fast.

March 17, 2016 Upgraded from Shared hosting and bought a VPS with 4GB RAM, which seems to perfectly match my needs. My site now loads super fast and the cloud-based infrastructure guarantees that it won’t go down, like it sometimes does with Shared hosting. Amazing services. For anyone who is serious about their business I recommend to go with Hostingers VPS hosting, so that you could be sure that in anycase your clients will always be able to reach your page and you wouldn’t lose them.

March 1, 2016 Stopped by just to say that they provide top quality service, yet should work a bit on their website design. Such a great service should have a look that matches. In any case, since I’m here, would like to say that the speed is uptime, support staff is professional, many great features, I especially like the unlimited number of subdomains and email accounts that comes with the Premium pack, it makes managing my website very easy.

February 25, 2016 I chose Hostinger due to a recommendation from my friend. I trust him so decided to trust also Hostinger as a quality service provider. To tell you the truth, had some hesitations at the beginning since it wasn’t at the ‘top’ list, yet found many reviews from happy customers about how amazing their support staff is. So decided to try them. And so far, can’t tell anything bad about them, Speed is uptime, support works well. Top quality service. 10/10.
