HivlyHost is a not for profit hosting provider based in Durham County, North East England. Founded by Kieran Cairns to help students get online, HivlyHost is sponsored by My VPS Host and UK-Based Brixly Web Solutions. Hivly Host was revamped in 2017, and brands itself as a budget shared hosting provider. The company offers a limited quota of free student shared hosting packages, paid shared hosting packages and a domain name registration service. HivlyHost’s student shared hosting packages are free for life and include 5GB storage, 80GB bandwidth, 2 FTP accounts and the capacity to host 2 websites. However, the company’s quota of student plans is limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Only English websites are eligible for consideration, and proof of student status is required upon application. Domain names are not included in the free student package. The company offers three paid hosting packages. The ‘Budget Hosting’ plan for individuals includes 10GB storage, 150GB bandwidth, 5 FTP and email accounts, and hosting for five websites. The ‘Premium Hosting’ Plan for developers includes 20GB storage, 300GB bandwidth, 10 FTP and email accounts, and hosting for ten websites. The ‘Unlimited Hosting’ Plan for businesses includes unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited FTP and email accounts, custom name servers and unlimited websites. HivlyHost utilises CloudLinux powered UpCloud servers situated in Europe, with SSD based hard drives and a redundant server network. Data is transferred over a 10Gbe network. 99.9% uptime is guaranteed, and data is backed up daily. All plans include access to a dedicated migrations team, a round the clock support team and 12 hours daily live chat. There are no setup fees, and paid packages feature a 14-day free trial and a 30-day money back guarantee.

“Excellent hosting service”
Reviewed

I've been buying the "budget hosting" package for a while now and I think it's terrific. The storage capacity is sufficient and the speed is great. I do wish there was an option to buy more email addresses. I work with a lot of longterm freelancers who represent my company to clients. I have used the five free email addresses Show more

“What a steal for a price”
Reviewed

This is by far the best experience I have ever had while purchasing web hosting. I was able to snag a website for very cheap. Generally for services this cheap, you would expect it to be a scam, however that is the exact opposite of this service.

In my opinion, there is not a better hosting provider then HivlyHost!
Luckily I haven't had to use the support a lot, but when I have had to use it, responses have been very fast, and they will work with you to get things fixed. My website is up and running and I love it! Their list of extra software installations Show more

“A great service for those who need it”
Reviewed

HivlyHost is a great company, and, as with all companies, it has flaws. But it works around these flaws ingeniously, and somehow, this only works to make the service better in every way. The speed of the service is fantastic, and the servers rarely, if ever, go down. The team they have on hand to help with any requests you Show more
