For you guys who looking for a honest and easy to understand review of this hosting company, Netkl, after a year using their service. This is for you.
After reading countless hosting reviews myself and searching for the fastest WordPress hosting I could find – I found NetKL.
As of today, I have been using NetKL for 1+ years. Not long enough but it is better than nothing. In that time, I’ve learned the pros AND cons – the ins and the outs.
So I decided to write a bloomer-free NetKL WordPress hosting review to share what I’ve learned.
Here’s what we are going to cover in this review.
NetKL Hosting Reviewed
- My first experience with NetKL
- My love and hate relationship with NetKL
- What’s plan you should buy?
- Final verdict: do I recommend NetKL?
My First Experience With NetKL
First I started blog on Blogger.com around 2013 on and off. I kept changing my blog address and created another blog over and over. Then I decided to stick with my currently blog, Mijablur.com
As you know, you will never satisfied with everything around, and that’s why I took a step forward to change into new blogging platform, WordPress. Rather than just buying a domain and continuing to blog using the blogger.com platform, I bought a hosting and use self hosted WordPress.
My Love and Hate Relationship With NetKL
There’s no kidding that I unfailingly have a love and hate in every relationship whether with technology, people around me or including myself. Same with NetKL.
What I love about NetKL web hosting
1) Customer Service
Sure, if you’re an experienced website developer, you don’t need customer support. However, for the rest of us, it’s crucial.
When you’re new to the world of WordPress and websites, you’ll run into problems and when you do – having reliable support to get help from is a real lifesaver!
NetKL’s customer support is excellent! Stellar, in fact.
They invest intrained experts, not general support that acts like they understand your problem.
At times when I’ve had to communicate with them, I’ve found their customer reps to be extremely friendly, helpful, and patient.
You have multiple ways to reach them ranging from live chat, telephone to a ticket based system.
I chose hosting for beginners with mySilver X plan since I was doubtful and choosing the cheaper plan will make me less thinking about money. Maybe next time I’ll change to myGold X or myPlatinum X.
P/S : NetKL already update that’s no more free domain on mySilver X plan started from 15 August 2019. So if you want to buy hosting, I highly recommend to buy myGold X or myPlatinum X.
As you can see above, NetKL only take 25 minutes long to reply my email regarding to my curiosity before although it’s just a reckless questions about my hosting stuff (This woman has no-end meddlesomeness)
No need to worry whether do you need to ask them in English or not because since NetKL is a Malaysia based hosting company, you even can ask in rojak language. Cool enough.
What’s Plan You Should Buy?
NetKL has two types of hosting, FOR BEGINNERS and FOR ADVANCED USERS
If you just a beginner to blogging world, I darn you just purchase the cheapest plan first, like myGold X as a starter then when your disk space usage almost over limit, you are free to upgrade to another plan.
Of course you can purchase plans for the advanced users with the higher price and more storage space than beginners plans but it up to you. As for now, I’d enjoy with the mySilver X plan since my storage space is sufficient for my blog.
Final verdict: Do I recommend NetKL ?
We’ve reached the end of this NetKL hosting review, and you probably are wondering if I recommend it?
In my opinion, if you’re serious about the blogging, wanna look more professional than using free domain and with a tight budget, NetKL is the best option you can find among WordPress hosting providers.
NetKL maybe not is one of the few hosting providers recommended by WordPress, but nothing wrong to give it a try. Especially for a cheapskate like me.
However, you can simply survey and review your preferred hosting packages according to your needs with other companies such as hosting companies at Serverfreak.com or Exabytes.com. Or, if necessary, to an overseas host such as SiteGround, Hostgator or Bluehost. Sure it can be a little bit expensive, but if you want excellent service, a blazingly fast website, and peace of mind with daily backups, then NetKL is the perfect choice for you.
