Since choices are too much that it would be very difficult for you to choose the one that actually offers affordable hosting solutions, quality features, and top-notch customer support.
Don’t worry, I am here to break down a well-known hosting solution that provides premium hosting services at affordable pricing. I am talking about Hosting24, that comes from a popular hosting brand, called Hostinger.
The aim of writing this post is to make you familiar with the pros and cons of Hosting24 so that you can better decide whether they are good to choose or not.
Let’s begin it…

Altogether the Hostinger network has more than 29 million users in 179 countries. This number is continuously growing at a good speed. The company says they get 15K new signs up every new day.
If I talk about their trustworthiness, the company is a part of ICANN that ensures that company has a strong financial background.
There are different types of hosting services available at Hosting24, each service has different plans and pricing under it. Let’s know about them in a detail.
Shared hosting is one of their primary services that helped them earn a loyal group of customers. They offer 3 types of plans under this service. Their pricing and features are as per below.

On the basis of the pricing and features, I can say, Hosting24 shared hosting is a good place to host almost all types website. The good thing is you can upgrade your plan to a more powerful plan with the growing needs of your site.
Hosting24 services are not just limited to hosting. They also offer a complete domain service. They have a domain checker tool that lets you check the availability of desired domain names.
In addition to this, you can also register domain names with them. Since the company is an authorized ICANN domain registrar you can rely on their domain services. It is worth mentioning that ICANN is a big approval status for any domain service provider.
The company offers Linux VPS hosting service that comes with features like root privileges, automatic backup, and instant activation. If you think, your website’s requirements are surpassing a shared server, you may consider switching to VPS hosting. In this type of hosting you get a complete control over your server; you will be able to take VPS snapshot manually and restore them whenever you want.
The company has 8 plans under their VPS hosting service. All the 8 plans support SSD disk drives, IPv6 support, full root access and 100 MB/S network. For pricing and features see the following screenshot.
Hosting24 lets you kick start your own hosting business with its reseller hosting service. If you want to enter into the world of hosting business you may take a look at their plans. At present, they are running two plans under their reseller hosting service.
Cpanel Reseller Starter
Starts at $25.99 for a month, the plan gives you 50GB of disk space, 500GB of bandwidth
Cpanel Reseller Business
This is the premium plan that costs $41.99 for a month. People who are looking to give their hosting business a big start can go for this plan. It comes with Unlimited bandwidth and disk space.
The good thing is both plans come with a strong cPanel infrastructure and Web Host Manager (WHM) that let users set resource limitation and rules for their users.
Besides this, reseller hosting plans also include single-click installation, free SSL certificates, DDoS Protection, custom name servers, free domain names and Live support too.
It would not be wrong to say, the company is one stop solution for almost all requirements related to hosting. With their extensive services that include domain name registration, shared hosting, VPS hosting and reseller Hosting, you won’t need to look outside for any of your hosting requirements.
The company seems quite reliable in terms of Uptime. When I monitored uptime for one of my sites hosted on their basic shared hosting plan, I received 99.95% uptime result. On the basis, I can say you can expect 100% uptime in their VPS hosting.
Note- I had used Uptime Robot tool. This is a popular Uptime monitoring tool that tracks website uptime every 5 minutes.
Money Back Guarantee
Most of the web hosting providers (Including the leading ones) do not come with money-back guaranteed. Luckily, Hosting24 is not on that list.
All the hosting plans of Hosting24 are protected with a 30-day money back guarantee. It means you will be able to cancel membership within 30-day time-frame if you find they are not offering services as per their claim. As they say, they offer an instant refund, I guess there shouldn’t be any issues giving it a try.
Needless to say, eCommerce is highly in demand. Nowadays, people are more interested in online shopping than traditional shopping. As a result, every hosting provider wants to do better in this area. Hosting24 premium plans perfectly suit the requirements of an eCommerce website as they come with good RAM, disk space and bandwidth.
Quick Customer Response
One of the biggest perks of choosing Hosting24 is you get a quick customer support form a dedicated team. Over the years, the company has made enough improvements in its response time for technical support. All their plans are supported by 24/7 Live support. It means, whether it is a day or night, you can expect a quick customer support. Apart from this, they also support Ticket support.
If you will search on the internet you will see that most of their users appreciate their services and recommend to others as well. However, there are few issues that need to be improved for sure.
This is true that the company offers free data backups for all its plans, but on the downside, except for premium plan, all plans come with weekly backups. If you planning to buy their basic plan, it is advisable to have a backup plan of your own.
I would like to alert you that they have a single backup system not multiple.
Domain Registration Delay
They offer a free domain with their premium plans, but sometimes domain registration may take up to 24 hours.
After taking everything into account, I can say Hosting24 is a good hosting platform whether you want to host a small blog or a big eCommerce website. Since they provide money back guarantee, it will not cost you to try it.
