Our goal at Hustly is to provide modern WordPress hosting at affordable prices, and the table here highlights our strength. Hustly matches and often exceeds most modern with features hosts, who are sometimes more than 10 times as expensive.
Multi-website hosting continues to be our strength. Hustly is the only host that allows launching of websites in multiple locations from the same hosting account. Other hosts with unlimited website plans, only allow you to launch all your websites in the same location.
Hustly also includes a dedicated hosting panel (Plesk). A popular panel like Plesk has multiple long term benefits because of compatibility with cPanel and other commonly used hosting stacks.
Why are Hustly packages so good?
We focus on technical innovation and listening to our customers, to create the most value for money plans. An obvious example of our technical innovation, is our unique ability to allow our customers to host websites in multiple locations from the same hosting account. We are able to offer these features, as we are a newer company and were able to learn from the shortcomings of our competition. To put it simply, we were able to leapfrog and build on the latest cloud technologies.
We focus on the quality of our WordPress services. Our approach here is similar to that of other modern hosts. In contrast, most traditional hosts tend to bundle a bunch of unrelated low quality services to make their packages look attractive. However, you will read numerous complaints about the quality of their WordPress hosting service itself. For example, unlike basic hosts, Hustly and other premium hosts offer limited or no email hosting. This is because offering a high quality email service suite requires a different set of competencies. Web hosting companies usually offer a low quality email service. The vast majority of users prefer to use sophisticated email providers, with modern business features, such as Gmail, Outlook or iCloud. However, we are still working on an update this year, that will significantly expand our email offerings.
Unlike Modern hosts, we focus on serving smaller customers. Our customers are not large venture capital funded startups. Most of our customers are solo business owners or web developers, who have limited development resources. As a result we don’t have to invest in development of expensive features that help multiple large teams to work together. The popular Managed WordPress hosts tend to have multi-million dollar businesses as clients. Consequently, some of their features such as custom team collaboration dashboards, might be overkill for small businesses who do not have dedicated website development teams. Instead, the Hustly hosting setup includes an advanced Plesk hosting panel. Premium managed hosts often do NOT offer a hosting panel, and offer a custom proprietary panel. We think this is so because managing individual access of employees to the panel can be problematic to manage for a large corporation. However, for a small business or solo entrepreneur, having easy access to an advanced hosting panel is critical. They often cannot afford to hire a full time CTO to login to the server. Similarly, at Hustly, we do not offer phone support.
Our high quality support is via email only. If you are a large corporation requiring access to a dedicated sales team via phone, Hustly is perhaps not the best choice.
We are a small and lean business, and have very conservative marketing budgets. We strive to innovate technically and learn from our customers, and provide the most value for money hosting plans for our users.
