Here is a list of prominent features we provide on our Unlimited packages that are not offered on the regular limited packages:-
More CPU, RAM Resources: With unlimited packages each account is assigned double the resources than that of normal shared packages including more CPU, RAM resources resulting in faster page loads.
Faster Page Loads using Varnish Cache: Aside from the more CPU and RAM resources our Unlimited packages utilize advanced varnish caching mechanism which helps in instant page loads than other normal hosting solutions.
More Reliability: Unlimited packages are created on servers having lesser websites than normal shared servers resulting in more reliable websites.
Realtime Scanning: Every file uploaded on the server through FTP or upload forms is immediately checked for malicious content so that malicious shell, mail scripts are detected and stopped from even being uploaded to the server.
Advanced Web Application Firewall: With the web application firewall you are protected from sql injection, cross site scripting and other multitide of website hacking attempts, resulting in even more secure hosting infrastructure.
Daily Scanning: Even if the realtime scanning and web application firewall is not able to stop malicious file from being uploaded on the server, each account is scanned daily with multiple anti-virus, anti-malware applications, making it even harder to hack your website.
No Automatic Suspension: On shared servers, accounts violating acceptable usage policy (e.g. sending too many emails per hour or running resource extensive scripts) are suspended automatically. On unlimited servers we check these manually and you are notified ahead so appropriate action is taken without suspension.
Faster Support: Due to structure of unlimited packages, if you face any issues regarding the servers, we are able to check and diagnose the problem much more quickly resulting in faster problem resolution.

It has been over 5 years for me in web hosting business and during this period I have come to deal with a lot of clients, searching for a good web hosting company in Pakistan. A company which can host their website at reasonable price, give timely support, provide quality service and above all a hosting company which you can trust. However sometimes the visitor ends up buying a service from a shady host and ends up with troubles like:
No after sale support
Unable to even contact the web host
The web hosting company goes out of business, leaving clients nothing
Upon renewal the hosting company demanding more charges than the 1st year.
And many other such issues…
So in this post I would outline some of the common pitfalls that clients face when choosing a hosting company in Pakistan and also a few guidelines on how to make a more informed decision to avoid inconveniences later.
Single Person Hosts
When searching for a web host through Google or purchasing through someone you know (friend, developer), make sure you do not end up with a host that is run by a one person. There are plenty of “hosting companies” in Pakistan which are being run by a single person which means you are at the mercy of that one person. It is important to avoid these kind of hosting services if you consider your data to be important. Below I will list a few points which you can use to detect if you are dealing with a proper company or a shady one.
Domain Ownership Issues
Another common issue client face is domain ownership disputes when dealing with shady hosting companies. Basically you purchase a domain name and work hard to build traffic to the website or if it is a company domain name and is associated with your brand and all your emails are working from there. Then one day you need to renew the domain only to find out you are unable to contact the person who registered the domain name. They are either out of business or they want far more amount to renew the same package. Another effect would be the loss of data in case of you are not able to contact the company, and don’t have the backup available locally.
Avoiding the Issues
Here are some of the steps you can use when searching for a hosting company through searching Google. If you are going to purchase through some person then it is also best to confirm their website address and make sure they have the followings: 1. A landlines number:- The best option is to use a host who have a Toll Free Number listed prominently on their website. Otherwise they should at-least have a landline number listed. The site who have only cell # listed should be avoided at all cost, as it is strong indicator of single person host.
2. Bank Accounts with Company Name:- Another way to verify authenticity of a host is to check their payment methods and make sure they have their account names listed under their company name e.g. for hosterpk.com we use ‘HosterPK Pakistan’ in our bank account titles. The bank accounts should not be a person name. This means the company has an NTN number.
3. Company Address:- Make sure there is a company address listed in the contact us page of the host’s website.
4. Contact the host:- Before purchasing, contact the host with a any query e.g. how long time will it take for the account activation, or call them to see if they reply.
