Cool Handle Full Review 2022

Complete Review of HostMeHost

Cool Handle offers basic web hosting. It has Business, Starter and Pro plans. There is also a Reseller Area and a Domain Registration Centre where domains can be purchased. Although plans aren’t inexpensive, they offer unlimited features and a free site transfer. They also provide 24/7 technical support. Cool Handle can help you sign up to CloudFlare's CDN service.


Cool Handle's infrastructure is a section of the website that you can find while browsing. You will feel safe with a state of the art data center in Los Angeles. It includes redundant power, fire suppression, off-site monitoring and network monitoring.

No mention of an uptime guarantee seems to be placed on the site.

These are the features

Cool Handle is known for their high-quality features. SSH access, website builders, DNS managements and instant backups are just a few of the many appealing features available across all packages. They offer unlimited bandwidth and storage, 5 domains parked, privacy, and free set-up.

A range of eCommerce-ready packages are available that enable PayPal payments. ZEN shopping carts and starter plans can be used to create your online store.


In the footer of the site you will see 4 support sections and a contact us link, this is where you will find a knowledge base packed full of information regarding hosting and websites, video tutorials to accompany the knowledgebase and a ticket system.

There is a toll-free number that can be reached in the USA, however, there is no option for direct email or social media channels. Cool Handle does not offer live chat. __S.17__


Cool Handle doesn't suit budget-minded people. It offers packages that are more expensive than the shared hosting site's higher tiered plans. Cool Handle does offer eCommerce-ready systems and unlimited options.

The starter plan begins at $29.95 with the Business plan coming in at $39.95 and the Pro plan costing you $49.95.

It is user-friendly

cPanel is included in every plan, making it simple for anyone to get started. You can keep your website and hosting well-maintained, no matter if you're a beginner or an experienced user.

Site design and layout are simple. These pages don't overwhelm or confuse, but they do give enough information to help you weigh your options.


Cool Handle is your affordable basic hosting provider. Although they are not as competitive as entry-level hosting providers, they provide unlimited features and an eCommerce package with each plan. They do domain registrations and hosting, so you won't get any advanced features. However, they are good at what they do. Although they could provide more options for customers to get down the support can be a bit more thorough, however, overall, it is reliable and easy-to-use.

Cool Handle was so easy to use for amateur like me. I created a professional website with much ease and the template offerings were suitable for my needs. Cool Handle was affordable and the support was outstanding. I highly recommend Cool Handle.

At the moment my ticket support system has got an issue and is unavailable since 3 weeks, i haven't got any answer from tech guys.

For communicating they suggest to use the email [email protected] where they never reply me.

The Live chat is mostly off and when someone is there he can't do anything, he can't solve problems and he can't open issue because my account has got a problem on the ticket support system.

I think is one of the worst support I never experienced.

Frist, My mother tongue is not english,So my writing is not very smooth.
This web hosting’s Control Panel is Cpanel. it’s very easy to use.
I had open the account 1 years ago. at that time it’s name is not Coolhandle, it is Pronet Hosting.
This web hosting is fast to visit from my country.and the price is cheap and customer service is good. I never had any major issues and whatever small issues occurred were dealt with very efficiently.
But this year I am not need hosting anymore.So I suggest you try this company here.

Although I have not used this domain and hosting for a high usage site, the uptime as far as I can tell has been pretty much 100%. I have needed to contact customer support on one occasion and the response was fast and efficient and although the price is not the cheapest, because of the service I have received, I would have no hesitation in recommending CoolHandle.

I have tried many hosting services available but I was never happy with the service they get up to that I have not activated with a hosting Pronethosting is now CoolHandle have an exceptional technical support and then their hosting service is not limited as other example I have been customer for 6 months with a provider that does not even allow me to use the Membership API .NET 2.0 with CoolHandle instead allows me to run scripts and install any application to ASP.NET.

I recommend it to everyone.


P.S. I apologize for my English.

I have had the pleasure of using Coolhandle since Late 1 year. gave me the most stable, cheap web hosting, also gave me the best quality, so no down time!!

I have had the pleasure of using Coolhandle since Late 2005/2006 I could not say enough good things about them, I have actually never had to contact them for technical issues, my site has had ZERO down time in five years!

When I do speak to them they are friendly courteous and efficient.

I've recommended coolhandle to six friends and associates over the years and they are equally pleased.

Price point for services rendered can NOT be beat.

I know I'll be with them for the rest of my professional life.

I moved to CoolHandle after I had bad experience with GoDaddy and it was worth the move. The Cpanel is blazingly helpful, creating databases, managing them through phpmyadmin, creating FTP users etc is easy. I will give me 2 thumbs up for Cool Handle.


Mar 04, 2011 05:55
Enjoyed a year without any complaints. Purchased by a promo code for $ 22.90 year ago, including the domain (with domain privacy). Great price! The current price of $4.95/mo. also not too bad. In Russia it is much more expensive, from $10/mo. and the quality is worse and there is a limit on the store and bandwidth. Very liked the CPanel - everything is simple, convenient and functional.

Coolhandle. is The One.
Coolhandle is by far the easiest web hosting provider I have come across so far, they make the whole process seem so simple and clear even for a beginner's like me. They really live up to there name. There customer support are so patient and understanding, they really Know there stuff, no matter how I put the question, they have the right answer, But to be honest, the control panel is so easy to use, and I have to say it dose have a feel of quality about the it, compared with others I've tried, with everything you'll need to build a top quallity pofessonal web site. Put that together with a very reasonable price, and you have a service that a lot of other companies out there can't match...

This host company has been an absolute nightmare for me. I have had so many problems that can never be figured out and it seems that once the problem gets to a point that nobody can solve it I get the following response:


Thank you for your response.

We are forwarding this over to our Administrators for further review."

That is an actual copy of a support response that I get when they can't resolve the problem and then I don't hear from anyone again and nothing ever gets fixed.

I've had problems all the way from control panel access info changing several times without any notification to emails not being received with horde mail to PHP form submissions not working properly. And as far as the PHP forms not working properly the response ...

Coolhandle .com is the worst.
I am not using their service and have tried to cancel since May.
They tell me they will only do it online which I have done but I did not finish one thing which they emailed me but since they do not always use coolhandlehosting - sometime they use Max or something else, I did not respond correctly and they continue to bill me $94.78 for 3 more months. The first time I called they were helpful and helped me through the cancellation process, I thought. When I was billed again, I called and the person was "do it online from the first notice or we continue to bill. I have not had this problem with other online services. Their service has been dismal to failed.

coolhandle not serious, no services, not working
Trying to help a client and transfered his domain to coolhandle; why coolhandle? because this was the link he got by email. It seems this has been a spam link because he could have transfered to whatever company. Transfer completed after paying 15 dollars and still pending after 10 days. Contacting coolhandle is impossible. Ticketsystem is NOT working and after sending mail to them I get the message I should send a ticket. After informing them ticketsystem is not working, they reply with other standard and automated emails. I even sent them my login credentials and asked them to open a ticket if they think it' working. No answer. I think I need to forget about t...

Coolhandle Rocks!!
Coolhandle has been my hosting site for over a year and i love them, never any issues and always has great customer service. My site never has any down time and is always up and running, each and every time you call customer service they are there to assist you. Coolhandle is the only hosting i plan to have, no need for any other because they are great.

When a difficulty arose, far from being Cool, they were Cold and would not [...]
Bad story - ColdHandle. I had been with Coolhandle for about 2 years without any problems. I had about 25 fully built functioning websites earning for me, not huge amounts, but certainly part of my income. And then there was a hack attempt on my credit card. The bank advised that it was cancelled and a new card issued. So I did. Just after that my hosting bill came due but I forgot to change to the new credit card number on my Coolhandle hosting. When the email invoice notification arrived, for some reason it went to my spam folder and the Coolhandle cancelled my hosting. I wrote to them the next day explaining what had happened a...

Cool Handle is great
I have tried the Cool handle hosting for the first time and i could not believe how simple it is to use and to set up a website. Everything is done very quickly as well, and the payment packages that they offer are very affordable for any type plan that you want . A complete newbie could use this and i would recommend this for anyone that is lookinng for fast reliable hosting.


Nov 23, 2011 10:38 is a great
There are many hosting companies out there and some and good and some are not. Before I selected coolhandle I went and do some research to see which hosting company would offer a great deal, which one was highly rated by other user, how was there costumer service and other feature. After extensive research, coohandle was always in the top 3, and after talking to people that were using there service, I was convinced they would suit my need.
From the time that I have been with coolhandle, I needs have always been met. I is very easy to reach customer service and you question are always answer in a timely manner.
I have recommended to some of my friends and they also have great th...

I love Coolhandle and I've had many!
I found Coolhandle to be an excellent hosting company. I had many problems with not knowing what to do and they were so helpful and prompt. I had a smooth ride once I learned the ropes and they never let me down.
I highly recommend Coolhandle for you!

Coolhandle is really Cool !!!
I have used Coolhandle webhosting for my websites for some time now. I have tried a lot of other hosting company’s for my web space, sites and domain names but the loading of my pages were always extremely slow and the service was very poor. So I was looking for a new web hosting company and my friends told me about Coolhandle.

Since then I never want to change my Hosting to a other company again!
I am so happy and feel very lucky that my friens told me about Coolhandle. This tip was the best in years, since then my websites are stable and give me the best performance ever!. Also a professional and expert Helpdesk with excellent response time.

Thank you, thank y...

Cool people to deal with
I have been with people for more than 5 years. Over these years I have had the best experience with their service. I am very satisfied with their hosting and can enthusiastically recommend them to any one.

Their customer support is good and the uptime is great. I wish them all the success - Siby Paul

Coolhandle Support Sucks!
I signed up with this company through Moniker. Which I'm very ticked about, cause Moniker has been outstanding.

So far, I've tried to contact support about 4 times regarding the same issue. Each time you get the reply that they respond within 8 hours, blah blah. Nothing!

Also, theyre prices are different than what Moniker advertised. I had one reply about that. "Our manger will get back to you." Hasn't done that yet! Their support is worthless!

If they dont reply today, after my 5th identical support ticket. (of which you cant track!) I'll have to contact Moniker and let them know how bad these people are!
