Alojamiento Tico Introduction

Alojamiento Tico (Tico Hosting) is a Costa Rican company founded in 2006 as a provider of Linux shared hosting plans. The current name was adopted in 2008, and over time the company's product mix was expanded to include dedicated servers, reseller accounts, domain registration, and SSL certificates.

Services and Specializations

If you're just getting started with hosting, you are probably looking for a shared hosting plan. A variety of shared hosting plans are available from Alojamiento Tico. All plans include limits on disk space, bandwidth, and the number of domains that may be hosted on a single account. Some upgraded plans included an unlimited number of databases, email accounts, and FTP accounts while most plans offer these features in limited quantities.

All shared hosting accounts include access to the Softaculous commercial script library for easy installation of hundreds of popular scripts. A website builder is also available for customers who prefer to build a simple website with an easy-to-use tool. Alojamiento Tico servers run the CloudLinux operating system, and customers access and manage their accounts with cPanel. Email services, protected by complimentary Spam Assassin protection, include webmail access and support for POP3, IMAP, and SMTP email protocols.

Dedicated server offerings are limited to just a few configurations. Servers may be either managed or unmanaged, and the pre-installed software stack, including the installation of cPanel and an operating system, can be worked out directly with Alojamiento Tico at the time of purchase.

Additional plans and services offered by Alojamiento Tico include:

  • A variety of SSL certificates.
  • Hosting reseller accounts.
  • An email marketing system.
  • Enterprise email service with Office365.


Alojamiento Tico does not own a datacenter. Instead, servers are located in the COLO@ colocation center in Atlanta, GA. This facility is staffed 24/7 and includes world-class network connections, power backup systems, fire suppression, cooling, and fully redundant network equipment.

Support and Customer Service

Alojamiento Tico advertises 24/7 support over chat, phone, and a ticketing system. However, we were only able to locate the ticketing system while reviewing their product offerings. If you are considering Alojamiento Tico and would like access to chat and phone support, we would recommend confirming that your preferred method of support will be available when you need it.

The support team is located in San Jose, Costa Rica. While no mention is made of the languages spoken by support team members, the exclusive use of Spanish on the company's website suggests that support personnel are native Spanish speakers.

Backups and Server Monitoring

Automatic monthly backups are included with every hosting plan. Backups are maintained at datacenters in Washington, DC and London. Alojamiento Tico's servers in Atlanta are monitored 24 hours per day.

Uptime Guarantee

99.9% uptime is guaranteed. However, we were unable to locate the exact terms of this guarantee including the uptime calculation method and reimbursement policies for failure to maintain 99.9% uptime.

Billing and Payment Policies

Monthly, annual, bi-annual, and tri-annual billing cycles are offered. A discount is offered when upgrading from the monthly to annual cycle or from the bi- to tri-annual cycle. Curiously, no discount is offered when moving from the annual cycle to the bi-annual cycle.

Payment may be made by PayPal, bank wire transfer, or credit card.


Alojamiento Tico is focused on the Spanish-speaking shared hosting market. If you are looking for a shared hosting plan built on Linux servers located in a world-class datacenter, and supported by a team of support technicians fluent in Spanish, Alojamiento Tico is worthy of your consideration.
