[Web Hosting] Shared Web Hosting Account

Hi there, today I would like to review a shared web hosting account. To be honest, I don’t use these shared web hosting accounts for production projects, no matter if they are based on DirectAdmin or cPanel, the reason of this is because I had a few issues in the past with a few providers, several downtimes took all my websites offline. However, things has changed and for more than a couple of months I’ve been testing a shared web hosting account from WebHorizon, this account has proved to be reliable, fast and quite easy to manage thanks to DirectAdmin web panel.


I want to start the review by specifying the key features of the web hosting account. First of all, I’ve bought that web hosting account through a lifetime offer, so, one in a million. I’ve paid €9.99EUR with not recurring payments. If you ever want a lifetime web hosting account, make sure to follow WebHorizon Twitter account and all its posts at Low End Spirit forum, I’m sure they will make these offers once again from time to time. You must know that lifetime accounts have more limits than regular accounts at regular prices. My shared web hosting account details are:

  • Location: Miami
  • Web Panel: DirectAdmin
  • NVMe SSD Disk Usage: 2GB
  • Domain Names: Unlimited
  • Databases, FTP Accounts and Email Accounts: Unlimited
  • Bandwidth: Unmetered
  • SSH Access: Yes
  • Node/Server OS: CloudLinux
  • Web Server: LiteSpeed

It also include: Free SSL Certificates, Softaculous, phpMyadmin and Roundcube web email client. Since I have SSH access to the node/server I can share its performance.

Personal Opinion

I believe WebHorizon, as a web hosting provider is one of the top premium providers out there, they are reliable with up-to-date, fast and very accessible services in terms of prices. Additionally to the shared web hosting account, I have with them a VPS instance based on NAT and other one based on KVM, and a Dedicated Email Hosting account, all of them are just amazing.


If you’re looking a reliable web hosting provider with premium services, give a try to WebHorizon, they do things right, also, its support team can resolve any issue in minutes. If for some reason your project need custom features, I’m sure its sales team will figure out a custom plan for you.
