HostMantis is a provider of shared hosting, premium SSD hosting
, VPS, dedicated server and reseller hosting. The company was established as PlexiHost, but in 2010, they changed the brand name and updated the offerings in order to gain a better position in the industry.
Having been in the market for a couple of years, HostMantis is still in a small size with a fairly small customer base. The largest highlight of the company is cheap prices. For instance, you can get a shared plan at less than $2/mo and a reseller plan at no more than $5/mo. The prices are attractive, but how about the features, performance and support?
During 2010 to 2013, there was nearly no negative comment for HostMantis because the uptime was excellent and the support was responsive. However, since the early months of 2014, we have seen increasing criticisms upon the decline of service quality. The uptime became bad, and the support representatives were rude.
In this HostMantis review, we put emphasis on the Linux shared hosting to reveal the truths of the company's services. All the stats used below are based on our real monitoring.
