Pretty easy to get an account and get setup

I set up my site quite recently. I'm a complete newbie but Koddos was the only web host that was prepared to help me set up my website from start to finish. The customer support was amazing and I just want to say thank you to the tech guys! You rock!

Uptime and support have been excellent

In my opinion there is not better host than Koddos offshore VPS hosting, with the same price I mean. Great host, pricing is average, but support is the best I have seen, goes out of their way to make sure everything is working just right for you.

Koddos Review

Koddos is a high-end hosting service known for their powerful security infrastructure that very effectively mitigates Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks and other malicious cyber activities. Their infrastructure is guaranteed to mitigate any form of DDoS attack, while also preventing network disruptions at the same time.

The company specializes in medium- to high-risk web hosting, advanced DDoS protection, and offshore shared, reseller, VPS, and dedicated server hosting. All of their plans give you access to a free domain & SSL, Raid-10 storage, attack filtering, 1-click app install for popular apps and a dedicated IP address, amongst others.

Koddos does not have a BBB rating (reserved for U.S companies). However, on Trustpilot, Koddos is rated 4.1 / 5.0 out of 20 reviews.

  • Fast DDoS mitigation system
  • Powerful Raid-10 storage
  • Simple dashboard/client area
  • Free domain and goodies
  • World-class customer service

Rating Breakdown

In order to give you an accurate representation of the hosting provider’s properties, our experts at HostAdvice have developed a standardized  hosting provider rating methodology that makes it easy to rate providers. Here we consider several important rating factors and assign a score based on how each hosting provider performs in the said parameter.

With that in mind, here are my ratings for Koddos:


ParameterScoreWhy we gave this score
PRICES8.0Koddos’s medium risk hosting starts at $39.99, which is a bit on the high side, but there are other plans as well. However, I’d give them a 8.0 because they offer four pricing tiers in each category.
FEATURES8.5Koddos is packed with features: different hosting packages, DDoS mitigation, Raid-10 storage, free domain and SSL, 1-click install for WordPress/popular apps, and a modern control panel. However, I’d rate them 8.5 because of their lack of CDN.
PERFORMANCE 9.0Excellent 256 ms response time, 99.9% uptime, SSD servers and storage, and great load times places Koddos at the top. I’d give them a 9.5 because they’re faster than the average host.
USER FRIENDLINESS8.5Custom cPanel, neat UI, and 1-click installs make the host very user-friendly. However, I’d give them an 8.5 because the cPanel may still look intimidating to hosting newbies.
SUPPORT9.0Live chat, ticketing, vast knowledgebase, and video tutorials. I’d give them a 9.0 because most hosts don’t offer video tutorials… and while that’s great, they don’t offer phone support.


Koddos Prices & Plans – 2023

Koddos has four hosting categories: medium risk, high risk, remote protection, and dedicated server. Each of these categories has four to five hosting plans. There’s also a colocation plan which allows you to house your own equipment in one of their locations.

As for refunds, only fully prepaid monthly fees may receive a 75% refund within 5 business days if a proper reason is provided. This is something you might have to consider before spending money on a hosting plan.

Once you’re ready to make payment, you can use either PayPal or a direct bank transfer (via credit cards).

Medium Risk

Plan nameSpaceBandwidthPanelNumber of sitesPrice (per month)
Medium Risk A10 GB50GBModern cPanel1$39.99
Medium Risk B15 GB75GBModern cPanel1$79.99
Medium Risk C20 GB100GBModern cPanel1$159.99
Medium Risk D30 GB200GBModern



I’d particularly recommend their Medium Risk C plan if you want to host a fairly big website. You get 20GB Raid-10 storage, 100GB of clean bandwidth and a ton of freebies – at $159.99/month.

Tip: Koddos’ medium risk plans are best suited for websites that are at “medium risk” of getting attacked. Choose these plans if security is important to you, but not a priority.

High Risk Shared Hosting

Plan nameSpaceBandwidthPanelNumber of sitesPrice (per month)
High Risk A10 GB100GBModern cPanel1$140.00
High Risk B15 GB150GBModern cPanel1$300.00
High Risk C20 GB200GBModern cPanel1$450.00
High Risk D30 GB400GBModern cPanel1$700.00

Koddos offers four plans under High Risk Shared Hosting. For High Risk C (which I recommend), you’re given 20GB storage, 200GB premium clean bandwidth, and a free domain name…plus other freebies.

Tip: Koddos’ high risk plans are best suited for websites that are at “high risk” of getting attacked, such as Educational databases. Choose any of these plans if you consider security a huge priority.

Remote DDos Protection

Plan nameSpaceBandwidthPanelNumber of sitesPrice (per month)
kProxyAN/A20,000 GBModern cPanelN/A$140.00
kProxyBN/A20,000 GBModern cPanelN/A$300.00
kProxyCN/A20,000 GBModern cPanelN/A$450.00
kProxyDN/A20,000 GBModern cPanelN/A$700.00

Koddos also offers DDoS remote DDoS protection as a service. By paying a setup fee of $50, you can have a proxy server installed specifically to add protection around your application, wherever it is hosted. The only difference in each of those plans is in maximum attack filtering and premium clean bandwidth.

Tip: Choose any of these plans if you want to protect your application/server/gameserver without needing to change hosting providers.

Dedicated Servers (DDoS Protected)

kDDS C2 x 240GB20TB to untetheredModern cPanel1$675.00
kDDS D2 x 480GB20TB to untetheredModern cPanel1$825.00
Tip: These plans are best suited for large sites that require dedicated resources, including a dedicated server management team.



  • Free domain & SSL
  • Free CloudFlare CDN
  • Raid-10 storage
  • Maximum attack filtering
  • DDoS mitigation
  • Free domain transfer
  • Unlimited MySQL, email and FTP
  • 1-click installs for popular apps
  • Free website builder

Koddos offers a ton of features but what I love most about the host is that they offer these features on all plans, across all categories. I’m talking about SSD storage, 1-click installs for popular apps, dedicated IP addresses and unlimited databases. The plans only vary in terms of disk space, bandwidth, and maximum attack filtering.

Final: Koddos Brand Review



When you’re considering a host, you should always consider its performance as it’ll have a direct impact on your website’s performance. When I talk about performance, I’m referring to these three metrics namely speed, uptime, and average fully loaded time.

  • Speed: I measure the host speed by its time to first byte (TTFB), which is how fast the host’s servers start delivering data to a user visiting your website.
  • Uptime: Most hosts offer a 99% percent uptime guarantee, which is pretty much the industry standard.

To measure Koddo’s performance, I tested Koddos.net, which is said to be hosted on Koddos.

The results were as follows:

On GTMetrix, the website had an excellent 250 ms and a fully loaded time of 1.0s. As for the overall performance, the website scored 83%:

Final: Koddos Brand Review

Keep in mind that only the TTFB and uptime give insights on the host. The fully loaded time is dependent on a host of factors, especially the website design and website structure.

Conclusion: Do We Recommend Koddos?

Koddos is a very secure hosting provider for medium and high risk applications. You get so many features right off-the-bat. Koddos has an anti-DDoS system built into their infrastructure, not to mention other security mechanisms like dedicated IP address and maximum attack filtering.

I recommend Koddos as an excellent host overall with good value for money. They offer you fast Raid-10 powered servers that make your website load very quickly. My only issues with them will be that they don’t offer money back guarantee like many other hosts do.

Notwithstanding, I appreciate their smooth UI design and intuitive dashboard. These make it super easy to manage your hosting account and your website.

Koddos is quite beginner-friendly. Their account management dashboard/client area is very easy to use, and so is their cPanel. It doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie or hosting expert, you’ll find Koddos easy to use.

Is Koddos secure?

Koddos does not joke around with security. In fact, the host utilizes modern technologies to secure your website from all kinds of attacks, from the simple ones to the sophisticated ones.

What are some good Koddos alternatives?

Some good Koddos alternatives are Hostinger, The Onion Host, Webcare360, and GoDaddy.
