SeekaHost Review: What is SeekaHost?
It’s a complete domain and web hosting solution.
It’s special because it’s “custom-tailored” for different purposes.
It has special “PBN” packages, or you can use it for your “money sites” or just normal websites and blogs if that’s what you need.
SeekaHost is also a domain name registrar and e-mail hosting provider.
Some of its primary features include:
- Multiple IPs
- Free SSL
- Free backups
- Anti DDoS firewalls
- Automated malware scans
- Free migrations
- 7-day free trial
- Plans starting as low as $1.35/month.
- Multiple server locations.
The company is owned by Mr. Fernando Raymond. It’s worth a mention as he himself has nearly a decade worth of hosting (primarily PBN) experience.
Why should you trust this SeekaHost PBN Hosting review?
There are dozens of reviews for everything on the Internet.
Most reviews are sponsored and the reviewers do not have any first-hand experience with the service/product.
However, here at Updateland I take first-hand experience pretty seriously.
So, I’ve personally used and tested SeekaHost’s servers before scribbling this review down.
Here’s proof (Transparency, eh?)
And here’s the domain I’ve hosted the blog on- www.updatelandreview.online (Transparency, eh?)
PBN hosting isn’t the same as your everyday website hosting, is it??
It has a few very specific requirements.
So, this SeekaHost PBN hosting review would take things from the “PBN” perspective.
Do note that SeekaHost also offers the traditional hosting (and WordPress hosting). However, the focus on this piece would primarily be its “PBN hosting”.
Live tests are another reason why I think you should trust this SeekaHost review.
I’ll conduct multiple tests on my SeekaHost servers, and share independently verifiable results with you. (Transparency, eh?)
If these reasons sound plausible to you, let’s get started.
As with all my reviews, I’d like to consider this is your first-time building a PBN.
No insult to you, but, this helps better explain how a service would feel like to a complete beginner. If you’re an experienced hand, feel free to scroll down.
So, here’s how the User-Interface at SeekaHost looks like:
If you ask me, it’s all extremely beginner-friendly. You simply choose the feature you need from the left-sidebar and a single click takes you there.
You can access SeekaHost’s domain service, PBN hosting, WordPress hosting and everything else without having to navigate through multiple pages.
On the right, it displays your connected websites.
I love the filters it offers. PBNs generally consist of multiple websites, don’t they? The filters (categories, status, SSL) help me find the site(s) I’m looking for easily.
In a nutshell, even if this is your first PBN project, you’d easily be able to host them over at SeekaHost.
I said I’ll focus more on the PBN-side of SeekaHost, didn’t I?
When creating a PBN, using shared IPs will create a very trackable footprint for your sites and may lead to your sites (even the money site) getting penalized.
Well, SeekaHost’s PBN hosting offers unique IPs for each blog you create!
This makes sure even if one of your sites is penalized/blacklisted, your other sites remain unharmed.
Each site will look like an independent website completely unrelated to your other PBN sites!
Do note that with most other companies, you’d have to pay extra for separate IPs. SeekaHost has this as a core feature, for free.
100% free one-click SSL
SSL isn’t a “choice” anymore.
Nearly half a decade back Google forced all sites to implement SSL.
And yes, it matters even on your PBN sites. You may not be aiming directly for “traffic”, however, not having a SSL is a major red flag as far as Google is concerned.
You wouldn’t want such sites linking to you now, would you?
SeekaHost offers completely free SSL certificates. These can be enabled in just a click!
Moreover, the entire process is “one-click”, literally. You simply click on the button and it’s enabled!
Trust me, I’ve installed SSLs manually, the process isn’t as easy. The free SSL is common but I must say that compared to most other hosts, the installation process is the easiest I’ve ever seen.
100% free backups [One-click]
Now, free backups aren’t very uncommon. I’ve definitely seen a few sites offer this.
However, the UI and process at SeekaHost is what makes this special.
All I have to do is, click on the “download” button!
The process takes seconds and helps prevent massive losses. Impressive, isn’t it?
1-click WordPress install
SeekaHost offers 1-click WordPress install across all its services.
Meaning, doesn’t matter if you’re on the A-class IP plan/WordPress plan or the PBN plan.
You simply click on “Create a blog” and enter the details (URL and Blog Title).
Done. You instantly get an e-mail with the login credentials that can be used to login to the blog you just created!
You can even toggle the “visibility” on or off. This helps if you don’t wish to go public just yet and would rather like to set things up first.
Maybe you already own a site? Doesn’t matter if it’s a PBN or a primary site.
SeekaHost will migrate it for free! They’ll host it on their servers and share the login credentials with you.
This is impressive for two reasons. First, it saves time and eliminates hassle. Second, even today, most hosting providers do not offer free migrations.
100% free DDoS protection & Malware scans
Let’s be honest, the world isn’t fair.
You post a screenshot showcasing your traffic stats? Maybe you just launched a new project? There’s a long list of people who’d start DDoSing you right away!
Fortunately, SeekaHost servers offer free DDoS protection on all their plans.
Moreover, the company also conducts periodic malware scans.
In a nutshell, while you could still beef up your security manually, these free add-ons are totally welcoming.
Domain Registration Services
SeekaHost isn’t just about “servers” as you may have guessed by now.
The company also doubles as a domain registrar.
You can register nearly every TLD, including but not limited ot .com, .co.uk, .com.au, .in and many others.
I love the fact that there are massive discounts (generally 50%) for most first-year registrations.
SeekaHost has an in-built domain checker and registrar that you can access here.
I personally loved the streamlined process though. The steps to register a domain are somewhat more simplified than what I generally go through.
Moreover, if you’ve got servers from SeekaHost, this eliminates the entire hassle of changing DNS and nameservers on a third-party domain registrar.
Server tests (Verifiable result)
Just because a company “says” it’s the best, doesn’t mean it is.
This is why I like to test things.
I’ll put my SeekaHost servers under some pressure and share the results with you.
All the results can be “independently verified” by you. Meaning, I wouldn’t just paste screenshots here (those can be edited, right?). I’ll share live result links to the tools which I’ve used for the tests. Those results can’t be altered!
This is the most basic server test anyone does. This simply tells me how fast the site is. However, it’s heavily dependent on a site’s size and widgets and hence this is just one of the 2 tests I’ll be conducting.
Here are the results:
As is evident, the site only required 713 milliseconds to load.
That’s probably the fastest I’ve seen any of my test sites (with identical configurations) load.
You can use this link to verify the authenticity of the above results on your own.
Server Response Time
This test will just establish a server’s response time. In other words, how fast/slow a server reacts to a browser’s request to load a site.
Here are the results:
These are some impressive numbers, aren’t they?
Considering SeekaHost is a smaller player compared to some bigger names out there, I genuinely am blown away with these results.
Again, you can verify that the numbers above are correct and not edited by clicking here.
7-day free trial
Throughout this SeekaHost review, I honestly couldn’t come up with many “negatives”.
While I’ve been completely unbiased, you don’t really have to take my word for it.
The company offers 100% free 7-day trials on all their plans! These plans are fully featured without any restrictions!
You get to test these out as deep as you want before you need to make a payment.
SeekaHost PBN hosting pricing plans
SeekaHost has dozens of plans, literally. I love its “for everyone” approach.
What I mean is, for any server type you can choose exactly the plan and specs you need.
This helps you avoid paying more than what you’re using.
For e.g. PBN plans start at $1.35/month for 1 blog and with 1 IP with 10GBs of space.
You can choose any of the other plans which offer 2/5/10/20/ 30…….up to 150 IPs and sites. Depending on your choice, the plan would differ.
SeekaHost classifies its hosting plans depending on your “use”, this keeps things much simpler. You aren’t forced to pay “money site” prices for PBN sites where traffic and stats do not matter much.
WordPress plans start at $1.49/month while A-class IP plans (for the most serious projects, hopefully with direct revenue streams) start at $4.00/month.
I believe this to be SeekaHost’s strongest suite.
Ironically, the company doesn’t have a “live-chat” feature as most other companies do.
However, the response times on SeekaHost’s tickets almost (pleasantly) shocked me the first time I created one. I got a response within minutes, on a “ticket”. Obviously this may not always be the case, however, they generally do reply within minutes.
Moreover, they can also be reached over e-mail and even call! The team is one of the most social and “friendly” (not a term you generally get to see on “hosting reviews) teams you’ll see across the industry.
Then, there’s an extremely detailed “Knowledgebase”. It answers most questions related to setting up a PBN, nameservers, a new domain, e-mails and everything else.
These are mostly how-to guides with videos screenshots! They also cover most popular domain name providers so you can set your domains up even if you aren’t using SeekaHost domains!
Multiple server locations
For any successful PBN, randomization and anonymity clearly matter, don’t they?
SeekaHost has dozens of server locations to offer.
The list include but isn’t limited to Australia, Finland, Germany, U.S, Canada and many others.
This ensures that even for non-PBN sites, you get to offer fast speeds to your visitors depending on your primary target locations.
Google Analytics and Clicky Integration
Let’s be honest, this isn’t a “wow” feature. However, it exists and is obviously desirable.
You can connect your SeekaHost panel to Google Analytics and Clicky. Doing this fetches all the data from these directly to your SeekaHost dashboard.
It helps monitor and manage your website’s health, progress and other data under one roof.

SeekaHost PBN Hosting Review- Final Verdict
So, is SeekaHost the best multiple IP WordPress PBN hosting? Yes, it very well could be.
The statement isn’t just me singing praise-songs.
It’s based on the fact that the company offers an easy interface, multiple IPs, free SSL + backups + migrations + DDoS protection and amazingly fast servers.
Even on the monetary side, I’m paying just $1.35 for a PBN. That’s cheap and there’s no two ways about it.
Is it “perfect”? Obviously it isn’t. If I could, I’d definitely add a live-chat feature. However, is this reason enough to reject everything else it’s offering ? No.
Before I sign off this SeekaHost PBN hosting review, I’d urge you to give it a try. Their 7-day free trial ensures you lose absolutely nothing and get a first-hand experience of everything they’ve got to offer.
