If you sign up for 2 years prepaid, it comes out to $35.70 or $1.48 per month for unlimited domains/bandwidth/storage/etc.
*Unlimited bandwidth is for a limited time only.

As a consolation to those who missed it and still desperately need it, "30%off" code still works and gives you 30% off

they host hundreds/thousands of website on one server. Take $20 from each and you got thousands from one server.

Are you not seeing the lines crossed through that and the bold text above above the table that reads "For a limited time, Hostlatte is offering Unlimited Disk Space with Unlimited Bandwidth"?

swizard210 01-12-2013 06:22 PM

I was interested in this but had a few questions, if anyone can answer. I'm not very knowledgeable in programming or website stuff, but I know some basics.

1. If I get one of the options (short/tall/grande) can I upgrade/downgrade to short/tall/grande when I please and keep my 75% for life promotion?

2. Do I get a domain or must I purchase that separately?

3. Anyone have average FTP speeds?

4. Can I use this as my Personal Backup and upload files that will be secure and publicly inaccessible?

5. Can I use it with www.owncloud.com or anything else like it?

I don't know how to do #4 and #5, FYI. But if you do please guide me accordingly or to the best alternative solution. Thank you.

chi629 01-12-2013 06:27 PM

So the only difference between the plans now is the number of domains?

chemdude 01-12-2013 06:31 PM

Sounds like a bait and switch to me. Never heard of these guys.

mr0x 01-12-2013 06:58 PM

What does "number of domains" mean?

You register domain yourself and they will host those domains?

jsherm101 01-12-2013 06:58 PM

looks legit to me. They've been around 3 years now (as legit as you can get for 3 years)

The recurring discount shows up at discount. Used google checkout, has cloudflare and plenty of perks and doesn't have my cc on file

very likely oversold but it's dirt cheap and works for me.

itaintrite 01-12-2013 07:00 PM

Hm, says "free domain registration available for com/net/biz/org" but still charges me $9.98/year?

Can you show us where it says it on the FB page? I don't see it mentioned for this offer.

I do see it at the checkout with "Total Recurring" price later on but will they keep honoring this price.

*edit* Hmm okay the coupon description has "GREATSTART2013 - 75% Recurring Discount"

Looks like Free Domain comes with the three year prepaid package. Bonus though: it comes out to 1.49 a month for the unlimited everything package, with free domain, instead of $1.99 per month.

read the options it's only available for 3-year purchase (a pretty good deal if you need a domain)

The first time in 4 years, Hostlatte is offering Unlimited Disk Space with Unlimited Bandwidth! This is available for a limited time; a few current members received this upgrade free!

That's not all! Our current coupon "GREATSTART2013" can be applied to these unlimited plans! Tell your friends and family, cause this deal is too good to pass!

ddecaro 01-12-2013 07:12 PM

Do you know how many inodes they allow on the unlimited plan. I am currently host with another company on an unlimited plan that limit you to 250000 inodes. I am unable to find this on their website though.

Not sure if I've ever seen anything cheaper, nor have I seen someone offer free site transfer with such a cheap plan. Manually migrating WordPress sites from DreamHost to HostGator was a PITA.

How many processes do they allow? It is generally 20 to 25 everywhere.Also was the Espresso Grande offered for $12/year during Christmas and now they increased the price?

Can someone explain unlimited domains? Is it just sending multiple .com domain names to the same one website OR being able to host multiple websites under one account?

pothb 01-12-2013 07:22 PM

It doesn't look like they support ASP.NET, can anyone confirm?

Booster 01-12-2013 07:25 PM

I am wondering if that free domain will bring any additional fees on top of the hosting price after 3 years, or will it be included.

Most shared plans have no set limits, just how ever much it takes to use too much sever load and degrade service for other sites on the server. Just make sure to optimize things on your site so you don't have issues. Images are a big thing, optimizing them for the web makes a huge difference with how many resources you will use. I am on host gator now and never had issues with a lot of bandwidth. When I first started I used a lot because I did not optimize anything but never was a problem, I ended up doing it to speed up the site the more I learned about everything. The only time I had issues was with hackers trying to do brute force on password protected area and host gator was very good at fixing it. That kind of stuff uses a lot of sever load, not regular traffic. But with being conscience about things like image size I now use a lot less bandwidth with more traffic which will keep my three sites on the cheap shares plans a while longer instead of upgrading :-) you can also use cloudflare to reduce it even more, I use it on two sites and it works well and is free. As long as u are not hosting torrents or streaming video most will be fine with a shared plan.

Also to the other poster, I see no mention in the tos about using it as a backup on this Service, I do now that host gator does prohibit that so i am guessing this company would not look kindly on it ether.

if you're looking to take advantage of CPU power with this host I highly suggest you proceed with caution. Most unlimited low-cost plans like these are simply nothing more than oversold servers that they bet you won't be maxing out. Heavy CPU users are the first to be given the boot, followed by bandwidth

Probably you will have to pay for renewal - $10 a year (depending on who they reg it with) - sounds like they cover only registration. Still saving $10

you can add unlimited domains to the website and host unlimited subdomains and unlimited websites.

SSL certs are offered by registrars like GoDaddy, NameCheap, and Register

This confused me as well. HostGator had the same cPanel setup.

I believe the technical explanation is that each domain is technically hosted at subdomain3.domain.com. To site visitors, it just shows up as subdomain3.com (site names are examples, not actual addresses).

In plain English, each domain has it's own web address and storage and appears as such to visitors. In the server's backend, each domain is stuck in a folder inside of the main domain's account.

Does that help?

iCracked 01-12-2013 07:33 PM

I'm switching over from my Namecheap registrar, although I did not get any hosting with it.

tickle_tickle 01-12-2013 07:38 PM

Quick question. Does anyone know if there is an automated site-moving process? I want to move a handful of sites from HostGator, but manually downloading each WordPress install via FTP and then doing setups on the new server and then writing over the files on the new server via FTP means a massive PITA and a few hours of transferring and downtime.

If there isn't an automated site migrator, is there a guide online somewhere to speed up the process? I haven't migrated hosts in a while.

You can host more than one domain per hosting plan.

Ex:

I have 1 hosting plan with GoDaddy, but I have three domains in said server.

During setting up a new domain, you will give an URL and a folder for said URL. Once done, the server will redirect to that folder automatically when someone enters the URL of said domain.

You are right, just had the ticket answered and it will be annually starting at $9.98 for .com/.net/.org and another dollar for a whois protection.

lostboytexas 01-12-2013 07:43 PM

They don't seem to offer the option for private domain name registration. Can anyone confirm this?

sahil80 01-12-2013 07:44 PM

There might be a script or something you can download. Anything will work its your standard webserver. Wordpress and whatever software you use often has integrated backup methods

Just enter the domain you intend to use and point nameservers once you buy it from a third party. If you mean whoisguard i think someone above mentioned they have it

So on my billing page is says this..

Registration Date:

Product/Service:

$1.49 USD
Recurring Amount:
$53.55 USD

Does that mean I'll be charged $1.49 each month? The $53 dollar reoccurring amount confuses me, is that the yearly price without the discount?

For the free site transfer, you have to contact them via ticket and they will ask for your old login info, may take 24 hours to perform the transfer.

It doesn't matter where you register your domains, but the number of domains dictates how many domains your hosting solution will support.

You may want to open a ticket to get clarification, but it sounds like they will start billing you $53.55 next month for three years and then bill you again every three years after that.

It looks like if you went with Hostlatte, they would do this for you for free. Otherwise, since you are using WordPress, there are plugins to help you with this. Do a search on the Wordpress site or from your Wordpress admin page.

generally it would be domain.com/webmail you may or may not get redirected to an ipaddress for Cpanel log in.

When you signed up, did it ask you for a username? I got myself blocked from the site after my username/password came up invalid a few times when trying to access the cpanel...hit the back button and they blocked me lol. Just emailed them, but think I'm losing my marbles because I don't recall seeing a "Username" field in the signup process.

compuguy1088 01-12-2013 08:50 PM

Question...what are the nameservers you forward a 3rd party domain to. Can't seem to find any information on the Cpanel..

Unlimited applies to your entire account - not just your port 80. They may have a ToS with rules about file hosting though (most do)

Nope. But you're supposed to login to CPanel via the email / password combo you use on hostlatte. My guess is your username is the first 8(?) digits of your domain you regged with

Also that lockout is CPanel automated, so blame CPanel, not them.

Thanks, I'll wait to hear back from them I guess as I'm locked out of not only my domain but out of www.hostlatte.com as well. Blaming myself for not paying better attention, although I wish there was more of a prominent username field/directive during the registration process (unless there was an I just glossed over it in my hurry to use the coupon before it expired).

Sorry, not sure what that would be. Logging into Cpanel shows home directory is /home/username where username equals first 8 characters of domain name.

DNS propagation for newly registered domains can take a couple of days.

sounds like I'm not the only one who jumped the gun. Turns out that you need to wait for the confirmation email from them. Mine had "Hostlatte.com - Your Account Information" in the subject line. It has the username and password. The username is the first 8 characters of the domain you set up with them, and the password appears to be randomly generated.

I am also blocked. I emailed them at support@hostlatte.com with the ip blocked details pasted in the content section. That was about an hour ago...haven't heard back yet but don't imagine I will until morning or possibly Monday, depending on their tech service hours.

Try emailing sean@hostlatte.com he is on right now. Hopefully you guys used a reliable email address, if you are using your email address from the domain that you register with, most likely you will not be getting any response.

I purchased an Espresso Grande hosting and set it up with a domain. I would like to host another domain that has nothing to do with the other. Do I need to purchase hosting for each domain name seperately or does the plan I bought cover different domains, withoit them being in anyway related?

You've got unlimited domains. Once you get access to your cPanel, select Addon Domains.

I slept on this, thinking that it would be here in the am (blah)

I prematurely sent a cancellation to hostgator (was paying $55 for 2 years there, but this seemed like a much better deal all around and cheaper), now it appears I am out on both lol. Ahh well, I will wait around and hope for another hosting deal for my like 5-6 domains.

I'm not sure how long hostlatte will offer the unlimited bandwidth on all their packages, but if you keep an eye out on their Facebook they have been running a special at the beginning of each month. If I remember correctly I paid $12/yr for the espresso grande package at the beginning of December.

For those who missed out, you may also consider digibrahma. They seem very competitive with hosting package pricing. I don't have any personal experience hosting with them, but perhaps someone else can give some feedback.

Did you contact support@hostlatte.com? Your IP might of been blocked due to failed passwords. I had that happened to me before due to typing my password wrong too many times. They have a very strict security policy which is great to prevent hackers :bounce:

I guess i wasn't blocked, technically, but for some reason I had to turn off my vpn in order to log in. That is a real pain in the ass :(

You can add 4 additional domain names beyond the one that you started with. (Examples: example.com, example2.com, example3.com, example.net, etc.) You can add them by adding an 'Addon Domain [cpanel.net]'

You can get the domain from any registrar as long as you update your nameservers to point to your hosting's webservers.

About $10 a year.



So I had posted about missing it on ther FB page last night and they offered some of us who missed both offers the 75% coupon. Now I am wondering if I could upgrade the plan and keep the 75% discount if I need it.

cre8u 01-14-2013 03:51 AM

As a consolation to those who missed it and still desperately need it, "30%off" code still works and gives you 30% off

You might be able to keep your discount if you upgrade, just contact them. If you get in touch with Sean he will most likely do it for you. That guy is great!

I'll note that, they seem to have really good customer service. I just hope the increase of new services don't hurt the shared servers that much. I already have to give it a few pauses when I was setting up Wordpress and phpBB.

ohnoitsryan 01-14-2013 06:20 PM

Would your site work if there was nothing uploaded to it?

I just uploaded a simple index.html that says "hi" to see if it would work, says server not found. Ordered the hosting night before last.

They only offer one(free) now. That one is not to good....IMO. They do have paid ones but im looking elsewhere for help. Anyone know of a good sitebuilder?

Your better off purchasing a theme at themeforest or templatemonster, they have pretty good themes over there. Theres a lot of free wordpress theme if you search on Google.

They are cheap for reason... I've hosted email server with them, they were NOT able to provide uninterrupted service even for email! Common issues: emails are not delivered - connection is ok but when send/receive nothing comes, cannot connect to POP3 server at all, support is not good either. I would only imagine how much more frustration would cause hosting website with them...
