In our first blog of 2023, we present the most recent advances in the development of our suite of web tools, whether for domain management or hosting. All of these services and tools are still available at very attractive rates, sometimes even free, and you can benefit from them by taking advantage of special offers!
The PlanetHoster Team is Listening!
Before we begin, we would like to remind you that we are aware that it is crucial to satisfy our customers whose needs are constantly changing, and we encourage them to give their feedback and enter their ideas for new features via the link https://features.planethoster.com. In addition, as a hosting service provider and designer, we know that customer satisfaction depends on the skills of our staff, so we are always on the lookout for talent to join our team. Please feel free to send us your resume! Our featured positions are posted on this page: https://www.planethoster.com/en/Carrieres.
Due to high demand from our customers, PlanetHoster has been working on its own storage solution for a long time. Finally, these efforts have paid off: N0C Storage was born!
In fact, N0C Storage is a low-cost storage solution that allows you to manage hosting files and massive file storage from the web interface.
At the moment we are offering N0C Storage in production to a few customers. As the results are promising, we will soon deploy it to all N0C users.
The new N0C Storage interface is accessible through the N0C File Manager — an easy-to-learn, ergonomic file browser. The file manager also provides access to Local, the name given to the interface used for local storage of hosting files (which already existed).
PlanetHoster’s solution has advanced encryption algorithms to protect the data. These systems were already in action a long time ago. HybridCloud dedicated server customers have a free replication of their server on PHBackup, an internal storage infrastructure of PlanetHoster.
If you would like more information on N0C Storage, we encourage you to read the File Manager article from the N0C knowledge base.
Changes to the Affiliate Program
PlanetHoster has made some changes to the affiliate program.
In fact, in the past, customers received a 10% discount and affiliates got 25% commission. Now we give 25% discount for customers and 25% commission for affiliates!
Note that there is a possibility of a customised CPA (cost per action) with a high volume.
Automation of the Migration From cPanel to N0C is Underway
For almost a year now, the largely automated migration process has been progressing well. Those customers who have chosen to do so have been able to proceed without difficulty, especially as our highly experienced technicians have been able to assist them when asked.
We still plan to make the tool eventually self-service, so that customers can switch through the platform in an automated way.
The paragraph What is the difference with cPanel? in the blog What’s new in 2021 – Welcome to the N0C Hosting Platform provides a lot of useful information to know.
PlanetHoster : a Trusted Partner
Recently, articles (available only in French) have been published about PlanetHoster. In particular, an article in the Montreal newspaper, PlanetHoster: l’indispensable clé en main pour des solutions d’hébergement Web. We also note the article PlanetHoster : Optez pour l’hébergeur web clé en main published on Actu, in France. In both cases, the multiple advantages of being a PlanetHoster customer are mentioned.
PlanetHoster ranks among the best domain name and server providers, hosting companies and hosting solution designers, at very competitive prices compared to the competition.
In addition, if you wish to transfer to us and reduce the risk of errors in the process, we are here to help you during the transfer and configuration, step by step.
PlanetHoster offers a lot of promotions, which are described in the article Coupon Code – Discount – Promotion. Here are some recent ones that deserve special attention.

The World with Free Domain Name
Please click on this link to order The World service (6 months) with the free domain name.
This tool, formerly accessible via the MG Panel, is no longer available. Indeed, the agreement with the supplier has expired since 15 December 2022.
Your Language is our Domain
So many terms and concepts have become part of the IT landscape. SEO with Google, domain name registration, service from reputable hosting companies, well-positioned web page, host, disk, mail, wordpress hosting, website hosting. Configure, upload, view, select and create a website. Reading and writing files and data. Not to mention the acronyms: PHP, DNS, FTP, PHPmyAdmin, CPU, VPS, SSL, etc.
That’s why we say that at PlanetHoster, your language is literally our “domain”! With us, you are in the land of knowledge.
A Look Into the Future…
Our team is continuously working on many projects, some of which will be completed very soon.
Availability of N0C on the HybridCloud
N0C is currently only available on The World web hosting platform. We would like to offer it also for HybridCloud dedicated servers. This will be a major breakthrough for PlanetHoster in the world of web hosting.
It will then naturally be possible to migrate accounts from a The World offering to a HybridCloud hosting solution.
As a reminder, the HybridCloud plan is a dedicated hosting service for web professionals who need high performance and greater flexibility than shared hosting, while being supported by PlanetHoster’s support team, free of charge and at all times. This solution offers you several advantages over cloud server, such as complete isolation of your resources on a dedicated HybridCloud and the ability to increase the resources available at any time. And this, at very competitive rates, considering the returrn on investment of our hosting plan, be it in terms of performance, access to several CMS (like WordPress and PrestaShop), security or storage space!
We had planned to roll out the HybridCloud plan in the fall of 2022. However, since PlanetHoster’s quality and respect for our customers cannot be sacrificed for the sake of a timeline or business strategies, we prefer to wait until everything is in place before rolling it out. Users will appreciate it all the more!
Upgrade to VPN V2
PlanetHoster’s VPN will also be upgraded to version 2 very soon. To be continued…
Permanent Future CDN
Although our clients generally do not require a Content Delivery Network (CDN), each site is different.
So, if your sites get DDOS (brute force) attacks quite often, or if they have a lot of traffic but you want to stay on shared hosting, among other things, you need to go through cloudflare. To make life easier for you in cases like these, we are about to set up a permanent CDN.
All the more reason to choose a web host in Canada, France and Switzerland like PlanetHoster.
Passwords in Roundcube
A feature to change email (webmail) passwords in Roundcube, currently in beta testing, will soon be in production.
And It is Still Going On!
It would take too long to list all our projects. Ideas abound at PlanetHoster. Here are a few of them:
- N0C CMS will also soon be in beta testing.
- Memcached will be added to the choices available in N0C.
- More SQL engines will be added to the development schedule.
- A brand new interface for the CLIENT AREA section is being created; testing is promising.
- We will proceed to a complete redesign of the PlanetHoster website (https://www.planethoster.com/en/).
