Hosting.co.uk Review: Features and Benefits
Hosting.co.uk is the UK focused web hosting company that serves many exciting hosting services for their customers. Here are the hosting features –
Dedicated IP address. The Ultimate hosting plan comes with a free dedicated IP address and you can buy a dedicated IP address from all the other hosting plans.
Discount. This is another hosting company which isn’t focused on discounts. That’s why you won’t see any discount offer here and there on the site of this web hosting company.
But when you check the hosting packs of the hosting company, you’ll likely to get a promo code depending on the company. By using the promo code, you could get a decent discount on the purchase of your preferred hosting pack.
Guaranteed uptime. Currently, the web hosting company doesn’t guarantee any specific uptime record.
Domain registration. Other than the web hosting services, there’s the domain registration option too.
Yes, you can use Hosting.co.uk to register your required domain name (s). To register a domain name, you’ll have to follow the “Domains” button.
Clicking on the button will bring a blank box for checking the availability of your given domain name (s). Once the domain is available, it could be bought directly by paying on the website.
The price of the domain names is quite reasonable which caught my attention very much. The current and the renewal price of any domain is all the same.
Free domain. In this regard, the hosting company behaves differently. Yes, you won’t have the room for getting a free domain with any of the hosting packs of Hosting.co.uk.
So, you’ll always have to buy a domain or use a previously bought one for hosting on any hosting plan of the hosting company.
Storage. The top shared hosting of Hosting.co.uk has different unlimited features. So, the storage provided with the Ultimate shared hosting pack (the top shared hosting) is unlimited.
Other than this hosting plan, all the other 3 shared hosting plans come with a limited storage capacity.
Bandwidth. Like the storage capacity, the bandwidth distribution is all the same with the hosting packs. The first 3 hosting plans don’t offer an unlimited bandwidth, though the top shared hosting has an unmetered bandwidth usage facility.
The number of email accounts. The first 2 shared hosting packs of Hosting.co.uk provide a limited number of email accounts, but the next 2 packs come with an unlimited email hosting feature.
The number of domain hosting. Among the 4 shared hosting packs, the Ultimate pack only provides the option to host as many websites as you want on it. All the other hosting packs allow you to host 2, 5, and 10 websites at best respectively.
Control panel. cPanel comes with the hosting packs of Hosting.co.uk.
Website builder. Hosting.co.uk provides BaseKit website creator and there’s a free plan available among many plans of the tool. Also, the premium plans of the site builder are very cheap indeed.
Website transfer. The website migration service is totally free, so you can leverage this when you’re in need of that, you won’t have to spend anything.
1-Click installer. Hosting.co.uk provides a 1-Click CMS installs, though I couldn’t come to know whether it was Softaculous or not.
