We have been with BudgetHosting for nearly 4 years and with multiple accounts. Their support team respond fast to tickets. Their pricing is really very reasonable or value for money as compared to most hosting companies. Although there are cheaper hosting companies, we do not mind sticking with BudgetHosting for the few dollars difference since we know their service quality.

BudgetHosting Introduction

BudgetHosting has been providing hosting services since 2001. The company is based in Singapore and says it wants to make basic web hosting services affordable. It focuses solely on shared hosting on CloudLinux servers.

In 2015, BudgetHosting said it was hosting around 3,500 websites for its clients. Its parent company is EN Technologies Pte Ltd, another web hosting company offering a much broader range of hosting services.

Services and Specializations

BudgetHosting markets three shared hosting plans, priced in Singapore dollars. All plans offer unlimited bandwidth, and the plans that are priced at higher rates also include the capacity to use unlimited domains. Storage space and MySQL databases are set up with hard limits.

All plans are using CloudLinux with the cPanel control panel, and BudgetHosting uses SSDs in its servers for improved speeds. Clients are provided with access to the Softaculous suite of one-click install scripts, as well as unlimited email accounts, SpamAssassin protection, and PHP5 on all servers.

Backups are provided with all of its shared hosting plans, but there's no specific information on how frequently backups are taken, or whether clients can access backups if they accidentally delete files. In its Terms and Conditions, BudgetHosting states that it's the client's responsibility to create their own backups, and its own backups are taken as a "best effort" endeavor — nothing more.

In addition to hosting, domain names can be purchased directly from its website.

Customers can pay for their products via Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, check (in Singapore dollars), or bank transfer.

Datacenters

BudgetHosting says it uses datacenter resources in three different countries, although all of the hosting plans it currently advertises are provisioned from its Singapore data center. It doesn't provide any specifics about its location or capabilities.

Support and Customer Service

BudgetHosting offers free migration from other hosts when you sign up for a hosting plan. Technical support is clearly signposted on its website, and support is provided via a ticketing system.

No telephone support is provided, although there is a customer knowledgebase which holds a few basic FAQ articles. Live chat is provided on its website, with limited availability.

Uptime Guarantee

BudgetHosting does not appear to offer an uptime guarantee anywhere on its website — including in its Terms and Conditions. If this is a concern for you, you should contact them directly.

Summary

BudgetHosting offers plans aimed at small businesses and individuals, particularly those based in Singapore and Southeast Asia. It would certainly benefit from offering an uptime guarantee, clearer information about backups, and a few more specifics on its datacenter facility. For hobbyist or individual use, there are some appealing hosting features on offer, if you're located within its target geographical area.
