Background

BBB Accreditation: No

Market Size: > 50 websites (#223 HRank list)

Growth Status: (by websites quantity): Decreasing

Unlike the majority of hosting providers, Lifetime.Hosting does exactly what its name implies, i.e. offers lifetime hosting options. It sounds too good to be true, and there are flaws that prevent us from calling the idea behind their services perfect.

There are a few reviews of the service, and they are mixed, so you can try using their services with the 30-day money back guarantee kept in mind.

As of our data, the Canada-based company could have much better performance results than the ones we can see.


Offers and Pricing

Shared Hosting Plans
Name Domains Disk Bandwidth Min Price Billing Term
Starter 3 3 Gb Unlim $79.95 1 Mo
Standard 6 6 Gb Unlim $119.95 1 Mo
Deluxe 12 12 Gb Unlim $159.95 1 Mo

The company offers shared hosting, lifetime registration, lifetime SSL certificates, lifetime priority backup protection, and several lifetime plans with limited amounts of websites and storage capacity.

The provider offers 3 shared hosting plans.

All plans are available for purchase for a lifetime and their prices are presented in the table above.

While they claim all the plans feature unlimited bandwidth, their terms of use state that your website must not exceed the bandwidth allocated for the account, otherwise the service may be discontinued.

This is a limitation one should keep in mind when signing up: if all that you need lifetime hosting for is a one-page website, then it may suffice; should you need more resources, problems may follow.


Support

Instant Technical Live Support: No

You can contact them by email or via a contact form.

Also, “24×7 technical support and business hour support for billing, customer service, and domain name issues through our Support Center.”

  • #193 on our list and 3.4 HRank – that’s the result for Life.Hosting in 2018.
  • Uptime chart reveals the period of low uptime with ~79% and ~83% downtime cases.
  • Till December the provider’s response time was low (around 1,000ms). However, at the end of the year it rapidly got much faster (200ms).
  • Yet, such a change didn’t save the provider from losing websites. In fact, a great number of domains left in the monitoring period. The period of the aforementioned downtime was followed by a sharp decrease, thus, perhaps, users were not very happy about the provider’s performance.

By far the worst host we have ever come across in all the years we have been on the internet. Our sites have been down for SIX DAYS now on Lifetime.hosting. Their hosting is slow and unreliable at best and support is hopeless. During the latest crisis, you cannot get hold of anyone. No-one has told us what is going on or when our sites will be up again. If something is too good to be true, like the price in this case, it usually is. Avoid like the plague.

I have to agree. I have been helping a client with her three sites on this host down with “php fatal error: out of memory” in the error logs for most of yesterday. The sites are back up with no explanation nor any answer to my question of whether they changed any settings. Since my client is not paying monthly (having paid one time), she has no leverage to demand better service. I’m recommending she cut her losses on paying for technical help and go with a regular monthly plan somewhere else.
