Compare the best HostMantis hosting plans and their prices.
Offering something for everyone, HostMantis has inexpensive plans with myriad options for freelancers, businesses, and resellers. They offer features that may interest media-rich or adult websites as well, including FFMPEG, unlimited plans, and allowable adult content. Their servers are housed in secure, climate- and fire-controlled data centers with backup power.
HostMantis tech experts are available ‘round-the-clock via the company’s ticketing system and email. Support is not available by phone or any other live options.
HostMantis offers a little bit of everything when it comes to hosting. Five main features apply to all HostMantis plans.
Choose from four tiers of service for either Windows or Linux operating systems.
Also available in four tiers of service per operating system, reseller accounts include generous features and plenty of power.
All three dedicated plans are unmanaged and have a 10 TB transfer limit.
These unmanaged virtual private server plans come in three pricing tiers and offer the option of cPanel control panel.
*When hosts describe anything as “unlimited,” it is typically boundless except in cases of abuse. A user may be charged a penalty or be required to subscribe to a more robust package if they are overburdening the servers.
If you’re a huge company looking for hands-and-eyes monitoring of your servers in a large Tier 1 facility, HostMantis is not for you. Anyone else looking for low-cost hosting or unmanaged servers may find a package to fit their needs. The company’s plans have very generous features at an attractive price point. But if you’re new to the Web or require extensive, live support, you may want to keep looking.

Been using Hostmantis almost 2 years , now Hostmantis just suspend my account. All my sites are lost. Their reason is my site use high resource, I guess one of my site is hacked and hacker use script which cause high resources using.
For other hosting services, they will temporarily locked Your Site and let you fixed it, then active your site again. With Hostmantis you don't have a chance, they just suspend your account , your business will be gone. My advice is Avoid Hostmantis with all costs.
They will suspend your account without warning and for simply getting traffic to your website. They are unprofessional. They had a month long DOS attack that affect every website they hosted in their Detroit data center and they still bill everyone for that month.
You can definitely do better than this. I wouldn't pay a nickel a month for HostMantis's service
I have been using hostmantis for 4-5 years now, paying 6 months in advance every time. I was recently suspended by them because my website was attacked(DDoS) without early notice or some warning. They just shut a website with 1k people using it at that moment.
When I talked to them, they didn't stop blaming me even though I have nothing to do with the attacks. No refund(for 5 more months I paid in advance), no nice support, their only solution was to change my domain name(clearly ridiculous). Do not use that hosting! They are not worth it, you can find better.
I have (until the end of August) a reseller account on Hostmantis. The price for a reseller account is excellent with a coupon. The response is 'ok' - neither the fastest at answering tickets nor the slowest.
Most tickets were answered within an hour or two. The reason I am moving though is the very rough experience I and many other customers had this summer. My websites were all down for about 10+ days.
I did not have automatic monitoring set up (now I do) so all the sites were down for about 5 days Before I knew it. No one at Hostmantis contacted me, in fact a customer let me know her site was down. I went through a two day process moving all my sites to a temporary web host which was a lot of work.
They were all still down for another 5 days after that! (Hostmantis moved all their servers/customers from Chicago to California they say because of an extended Ddos attack). If they had handled this better and let us (customers) know what was going on in a timely manner I would be more satisfied. The new host I am with now has better service, better uptime, and according to "Uptime Doctor" better performance (much less latency).
If you have a personal website that it would not matter if it went down for a few days the price and support at Hostmantis is ok. Otherwise, keep looking...l
I am in the process of canceling their services right this second. Their worst problem is their poor support. The word "Sorry" isn't in their dictionary even when they have a rudeness issue.
Instead of saying sorry , they blamed me. They have downtime that they won't admit to. They have no respect for customers and the employees that work for them .
I.E placing quotes around the word programmer. I think for this price ; they need to learn better customer service skills. If you want hosting for cheap and don't require support this might be the perfect service for you.
The price reflects their amount of skill ; minimal. You've been warned.
I have been creating websites for over 20 years and have never left a negative review about a web host until now. Every time I encountered a problem, the support team would blame me in some way. The website was constantly down and each time Hostmantis "support" would claim it works fine for them.
I was forced to switched hosts even though I prepaid Hostmantis for a full year. Within 1 hour of changing hosts my websites were again back and working smoothly. In addition, the support team is quite rude, and not willing to take the time to solve the customer's issues.
I have never left a negative review before about a host or for any company in any field before, until I created this one. Stay far away from this company!
Been hosting my website top 10 ufo.com with them for several years now and the uptime is excellent and the price cannot be beat!
Hostmantis Sucks! Do not take hostmantis as your hosting company. They really have no idea in running a hosting company.
Their offer is far different from the exact hosting experience if you have your website running on their hosting. Imagine having an impression ranging from 1-80 per day and having a low resource eating plugins. You will suffer from their consequence of having a high resource usage and threaten your website/s to be shutdown permanently if you will not change your setting or delete some plugins if this is the one causing the load.
Support is worse. You can try hostmantis and feel the worse support ever. Security is much worse, they will send you a ticket that their is a brute force attack.
Even if isn't happening. Hostmantis just want to earn money from webmasters and get rid of us as soon as they get the money. A couple of months will do and they will start sending ticket about "high resource usage and brute force attack".
In my case, its 2months and they starting to bother me. There is no peace of mind in hosting your website in hostmantis. Downtime is so much worse...
don't expect Your Site to earn at hostmantis. I am writing this review because i have this websites almost not having any visitors and just consuming 1/16 of disk space and low consumption of resource which, again, they will reason out of huge resource or brute force even if it is not happening according to my stats, knowledge and other webmaster friends overview. Hostmantis is not just used by me but with other friends and we have the same outcome of using hostmantis. Hostmantis - The World's Most "Sucks" hosting ever!
