Hostinger – Free and Low Cost Hosting - Evaluation and Report
OK, I’ve built more than a couple of websites over the last 15 years. I taught myself – learned out of necessity – and early on, often did it operating on my own out of pocket, limited, budgets. Through those years, I kept and maintained [through today] two of the many sites; two very simply produced, and easily maintained, websites… so this is no ‘theory’ or armchair reflection.
Web Hosting is a strange animal! I tell you, for sure; (under many circumstances) you can pay $1000 a month or $1.00 a month and find no observable difference (!) [This statement excludes sophisticated, retail, and high traffic sites; I speak of just simple, small business or organization presence, email, blog].
Let me back up; as I stated, I’ve had these sites for years… and, of course, I have had to have them ‘hosted’ all those years. I am a man who can really, really, make a ‘shoestring’ budget ...work! So, I have paid little for hosting over the years - with no exceptions.
Some years I had them hosted fully for free; (a service Hostinger offers) but, today, I also point to Low Cost Hosting Hostinger offers – which was the best choice for me today.
Back then, I’d found a great hosting company that I loved – and it was free; for about 5-7 years. Then, they did away with free hosting [lots of reasons good companies offer this free hosing]. I’d been with them from early on and they ‘grandfathered’ me in for a very, very, low yearly rate [very nice of them].
I am smart, but can be foolishly assuming at times. In the first months, I’d misunderstood the genuine kindness in pricing and thought the price was MONTHLY… so, I’d almost immediately sought out another free hosting site – at least for one site that was very active.
So, I found ‘Go Daddy’…they grabbed me with an advertisement at a low yearly introductory rate – it was nice until it expired then they got very, very, greedy.
I started searching anew – and, waded through a bunch of companies – almost got lured into a bad one … and then came across HOSTINGER!
I love THE FREE TOOLS! I love THE TEAM! [And, just as important] – I Love THE PRICE! I wound up signing up for two years which is totally not characteristic of my [I mean really!]; but the price and the support sold me. In fact, I aim to double down and sign up for another two while the price is low.
All the free tools are mind boggling – all the bells and whistles – and so simple to use [Really].
And, those helpers – Support - are not a million miles away – there is ‘chat’ box on every page and if you need help – they are there [almost like being there in person]; so is the President of the Hostinger – easily accessible - available to listen or help.
Good Job, … very well done~
