Features of HostWithLove Hosting (cPanel)

Here are the main features that make HostWithLove’scPanel hosting stand out from the crowd and make it so special in the industry:

Easy & Quick Account Setup

One of the biggest advantages is there’s no need to go through complicated technical steps to setup your account. The moment your payment is confirmed, your account is setup. Once the account is setup, it takes just a single click to install apps. Whether it’s WordPress or Magento, they can all be installed using their cPanel’sSoftaculous plugin. HostWithLove has called it the “1-Click Installer.”

Multiple PHP Versions

Some providers only allow you to use a single PHP version and this can be problematic if lets say they support PHP version 5.6 but your scripts can only work on PHP version 5.4. With HostWithLove, this is not an issue. In their cPanel interface, there is an option for you to choose the PHP version you want to use. They currently offer PHP versions 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0 and 7.1 so literally all PHP scripts will work on their hosting environment.

Guaranteed 99.9{d8b66277a7518e4eec372fc66ba9c89064d9fca13d781d7d97b205a7ede9dbc0} Uptime

Many shared hosting providers in the market claim to offer 99.9{d8b66277a7518e4eec372fc66ba9c89064d9fca13d781d7d97b205a7ede9dbc0} uptime, but more often than not, these are just claims and cannot be ensured under any circumstances. HostWithLove offers a genuine 99.9{d8b66277a7518e4eec372fc66ba9c89064d9fca13d781d7d97b205a7ede9dbc0} uptime which is backed by a Service Level Agreement (SLA) which basically means if they fall short of 99.9{d8b66277a7518e4eec372fc66ba9c89064d9fca13d781d7d97b205a7ede9dbc0} uptime, then they will compensate you for the downtime. This shows their confidence in ensuring a high level of uptime; how many providers are confident of making these sort of guarantees backed by a SLA?

It is worth mentioning that HostWithLove has datacenters located in the United States, United Kingdom, EU, Brazil, Hong Kong and India. They feature state-of-the-art equipment, with power backup generators, and 24/7 manned monitoring and security. Not only are the servers reliable, the company allows you to choose a server location of your choice. You can select it during the checkout process.

Free Email Accounts

All their hosting packages come with unlimited email accounts. You can access it via POP3, IMAP or a Webmail interface which they provide. They also enable access for SMTP via port 26, so in case your Internet Service Provider blocks port 25 which is the usual SMTP port, you can access it via port 26.

Free SSL Certificate

When you run a website, having a SSL Certificate is not only a sign of security and trust for your visitors and customers, it also protects your site and interests too. Content that is transmitted over a HTTPS protocol is encrypted and ensures that sensitive data such as passwords or financial information is protected at all times.

Daily Backup

Most web hosting providers don’t provide daily backups except for their premium accounts, and even if they do so it is usually to the same local facility or only for 7 or 14 days.HostWithLove again makes an exception and protects the interests of its clients by carrying out automatic daily backups using R1Soft which is an industry leading software. The backups are stored onto one of HostWithLove’s remote backup servers. Having the data backed up onto a remote server is very important because in an extremely rare event (not saying it will happen, but it pays to be careful) there is an incident at the datacenter where your hosting account is hosted at, at least your backups are in a different facility. Not many providers store their backups to a remote facility because it is costly so HostWithLove really has taken a lot of measures to ensure their backups are intact at all times – very good safety measures they have thought out!

Plans & Pricing

The plans and pricing for HostWithLove’scPanel hosting are as following:

Their cPanel shared hosting plans start from just $3.90/month. Coupled with their excellent support who is available 24/7 via their ticket system, it is extremely affordable to everyone. Their support team can help you setup your site, online store, blog, wiki or CMS in just minutes if you need help. Besides, its cPanel hosting solutions are backed up by its 45 Days Money-Back Guarantee which is again higher than the norm I’ve seen for most hosting companies, so this goes to show how much confidence they have in their services.


HostWithLove provides very reliable hosting services that is feature-packed and affordable.

As of now, I haven’t seen anyone complaining about their services and I am sure they will not let you down.  Their support team has always gone the extra mile for me, so if you are looking for a new hosting provider, I would recommend you to give HostWithLove a try!
