CloakHosting Review

Do not use CloakHosting. Publicly reported security vulnerabilities show an extremely insecure platform. Read more on my blog post.

Description

CloakHosting is one of the older “New Generation” SEO hosts. They provide diverse IP, claim no footprints on the platform and over 50 A-Block IPs in over 50 locations all over the world.

Pricing

Pricing plans start at: $47/mo (10 IPs)
Price for 100 IPs: $237/mo (100 IPs)

About

Their signup process is horrible, requiring Facebook login due to “safety concerns”. I don’t believe that would keep Google away from infiltrating their system which they state as their reason.

They host servers with other hosting providers, the same as Easy Blog Networks. They say they host with “hundreds of other providers” but unfortunately they don’t provide the names. I tried to get the names on their Live Chat but they provided only a list of few, stating “there are too many”. Those that were provided were small cPanel hosts and I haven’t seen any big brand providers like from EBN.

While the IPs are really broad, their nameservers are not since the large majority of them come from just one provider, the all known WebsiteWelcome.com.

Cloak Hosting Dashboard

Their dashboard is pretty easy to use and makes adding new blogs quick and simple.

They have phone and Live Chat support.

Verdict

CloakHosting is on the right track with everything but then just misses on most points: with hosting providers I see no big brands; with nameservers, they provide the same provider too many times; and the price is becoming non-competitive with new entrants on the market.

Update: in May 2016 due to a vulnerability in their system, all of their IPs have been exposed. I highly advise against using them.
