Is Host & Soft the host for you?
By Brian Wu
Host & Soft, a hosting services provider based in Karachi, Pakistan, was founded nearly 10 years ago. The company offers a wide range of hosting services in addition to several related offerings focused on building customer brands and providing friendly service that treats customers like "family."
Host & Soft provides a wide range of services for shared, VPS, and dedicated server plans. In addition to hosting services, Host & Soft provides consulting services related to marketing and web design. The company targets individuals and small businesses who are seeking a hosting company with a good reputation at low prices.
At a minimum, Host & Soft offers shared hosting plans that are full of features. Most of the shared plans limit the amount of disk space and email accounts while all the shared plans have unlimited bandwidth and include a free domain name. Customers thinking about online commerce applications may consider plans that include a free SSL certificate and a private IP address. Geared toward coders, the plans also feature support for many scripting languages including multiple versions of PHP, MySQL, and Ruby on Rails. Customers needing quick installation of applications can use Softaculous to load over 250 scripts such as WordPress and Prestashop. Besides creating plain web pages, customers can enhance visitor experience using Flash and video streaming with shared hosting. Those who want to only create websites with WordPress, can select from a range of WordPress optimized plans similar to the shared hosting plans.
In addition to plans targeted toward shared and WordPress hosting, the company offers VPS plans. The plans allow for at least a terabyte of bandwidth and vary by the amount of dedicated resources available including RAM, disk space, and CPU cores. Similar to its shared plans, the company's VPS plans feature FTP and email accounts as well as support for scripting languages including PHP. VPS hosting plans are fully managed and allow a customer to configure their hosting through cPanel or WHM. WHMCS is also available for customers wanting to bill their clients. These plans are much faster since the company uses SSD technology and is a CloudFare partner. Customers who need even more resources can scale their plans without having to worry about downtime. They can also select from a range of dedicated server plans that are fully managed and feature much greater allowances for RAM and bandwidth.
Besides providing hosting services, the company also provides consulting services for customers wanting to improve search engine traffic or have a better looking website. Host & Soft's design services include website design, UI design, and graphic design. Besides design services, the company offers marketing services which include SEO, social media marketing, email marketing, and SMS branding to help increase traffic. To take advantage of these services, customers can request a quote from the company via contact form.
To provide the best possible service, Host & Soft uses enterprise grade servers that are mainly based in the US. These servers provide fast networking speeds of up to 1 Gbps and feature SSD storage on a RAID. As a result of fast servers on quality hardware along with a fully redundant network, the company is able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime.
Host & Soft aims to provide the best possible service to its customers. As a result, the company allows customers to seek support in multiple ways including phone, email, and chat. Besides these standard channels, the company constantly monitors its servers and provides numerous technical articles on its website and blog, which are available 24/7.
After selecting a plan and domain name, the company will bill the customer for the hosting on a monthly basis. Other features such as domain name registrations are billed yearly. Though the company does not offer a discount for paying at least a year upfront, discounts are sometimes announced on Host & Soft's website. To make a payment, customers can use PayPal, 2CheckOut, or a bank transfer.
In business for over 10 years, Host & Soft is a hosting services company based in Pakistan. It offers shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting plans along with design and marketing services. It aims to provide friendly service that treats customers like family. Individuals and small businesses looking for personalized hosting services at a bargain price may find Host & Soft to be a great fit.
