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.

February 12, 2016 What I like about Hostinger is the quality and simplicity of the UI. I would usually get overwhelmed with other companies cpanels but Hostinger turned the tables around. I can easily control my site with couple of button clicks. In any case, I’ve experienced some down time and my site would show error messages so contacted the support staff turn out I reached the cpu limit and needed either to upgrade or optimise my website, so I did both. The Premium package offers a lot more resources so my website can grow without any problems. Also would like to mention that the support staff works super quickly, I submitted a ticked and was responded in several minutes. Thumbs up and keep up the good service!

January 2, 2016 When I got was searching for a hosting provider, the same companies would pop-up on the top lists but when I would check their reviews it seemed like all they do is invest in publicity and not their services, so I decided to dig deeper and search for other hosting providers. That’s how I found Hostinger. At first I took their free plan to test the quality of their services. Everything worked quite smoothly, the auto install feature for wordpress made my life a lot easier, so I also installed a couple plugins to have my keywords organised and rank better in search results. Since everything was going in the right direction, I started to get traffic on my website, so I upgraded to the Premium plan. While doing so had some issues so contacted the customer support staff. Can’t believe how good and professional their services are.

December 14, 2015 Always use backups! Learn from my mistake, since somehow they can’t recover files I deleted 3 years ago and told me that I should have made backups by my own for such a long time frame.

December 2, 2015 My journey with Hostinger began actually by a very lucky coincidence. Since I had no money but dreamed about a .com domain aaaand somehow I won it. Was hyper excited till I actually started building my website. At first I was very confused and lost, had no idea how to do it and was failing miserably. Finally, when I found a way to submit a ticket and listed A MILLION of issues I had and didn’t expect to get an answer in several days or get all the answers, but somehow after 3 hours I received a long and detailed answer with useful links and tips. Wouldn’t know what to do without such a professional support staff. Even though I’m just starting, I can say only best words about these guys. Thank you.

November 12, 2015 I used their Shared servers and recently moved to VPS since my business started growing like crazy. I thought the service before was top quality but now… NOW I get even more than I expected! The SSD disk drive gave me an amazing I/O rate, everything works so fast now! Actually now I ask myself why didn’t I start using VPS earlier. Trust me, it’s a great value for your money. Top quality guys, continue the great work, I’m happy to trust my business in your hands, I know it is safe there.

October 15, 2015 Ok, guys, this is more than amazing, the tutorials you provide...oh, I am simply lacking words to describe it. Being a nube a had to spent hours on google to find ones that would be detailed and clear enough for me. I actually tested like 10 of them at the beginning, even the stuff that wasn’t necessary for me at that moment, but NOW I understand how useful it was. Now I can move websites from subfolders to base domain, point domains to bloggers, properly use file manager on the cPanel ad a lot more! For someone who is ‘IT illiterate’ it’s simply amazing. Now I follow the tutorial page and continue to learn and grow with them. Hope you’ll keep on writing them because you have one loyal follower who checks for new ones on daily basis.

October 2, 2015 For someone who simply hates coding (just like I do), going with Hostinger is the best option. I simply fell in love with their Zyro website builder. The drag and drop interface with hundreds of website templates allows to create a professionally looking site in several minutes (despite the hours of I spent playing around with various features). Easily added all the social media buttons and now my website is flourishing with all the new visitors that I gather by having social presence. I saved a lot of money since I didn’t have to hire a professional to do that for me. Great value!

September 27, 2015 Recently contacted them about this file that I deleted around 16 months ago and they said they can’t restore it. Shouldn’t hosting providers keep ALL my data safe? I know it’s free, but still, lost important data.

September 25, 2015 Today is my 3 year anniversary with Hostinger so I decided to share some insights due to this special occasion. Throughout this time we had a pretty good ‘relationship’, yet sometimes we would encounter some issues. I have experienced some down time, but that happens with all hosts so I wouldn’t say find that to be a problem. In any case, I could and do recommend it to all who needs a reliable and trustworthy hosting company. By the way, thumbs up for professional 24/7 support, made my life a lot easier. It’s great value and still can’t believe that you can get top quality for such friendly prices. Premium plan rocks!

September 8, 2015 I joined Hostinger around a month ago. Since I was new to hosting, I’ve read many reviews online, how free hosting experience is basically ‘suffering’, but decided to give it a go since one way or another I need to learn and why pay for something that might not even work for me. So, now I can tell that everything turned out completely different than expected. I created my account with several button clicks, which for me was pretty impressive. Started creating my WordPress blog (thanks Internet for telling me from where to start) and really had a lot of fun with it. Auto install feature made it very easy and then the game with the plugins began. Of course, several days ago I managed to ruin my site, yet had the opportunity to contact the Customer Support staff. Don’t really like asking questions but the guy I talked to was not only very professional but also friendly, Mercury his name was, so special thanks to him and continue being passionate about your job!
