Good quality hosting at affordable prices
AlotSpace is the creation of two parent companies who founded the hosting website in 2006 and has since began offering packages for small businesses and large corporations alike. They pride themselves on offering quality services and features for an affordable price, and I can vouch for that. The name speaks for itself – they offer you a whole lot of space, and much more, all while keeping prices extremely competitive and only adding more features as the time goes on.
Uptime & Reliability
Very reliable hosting with 30 day money back guarantee
The free domain for life make it a great choice to get a yearly plan, but it can be risky purchasing a years worth for a company you never heard of. Thankfully, they have a 30-day money back guarantee for all shared hosting purchases, though it doesn't apply for the domain name (either way, you can keep the name and get refunded the amount). The period goes down to only 5 days in order to receive a refund for any VPS or Semi-Dedicated hosting plan.
Nice hosting plans with great features
All of their plans have a lot of space. And by a lot, I mean unlimited. Add some unlimited bandwidth to that as well and you’re getting the basics of every single plan they offer, even the cheapest one. Let’s build on that: even if you decide to get the cheap plan, you don’t just get to host one domain on it, but TWO. On the downside they do limit your SQL database amount to 4. It also seems like they don’t use cPanel but a custom control panel with a different script installer and much more. If you happen to be interested in reseller features, they have a separate company, though owned by ALotSpace, called reseller clutter, that offers many hosting and VPS reseller features you can monetize on.
Their best services are quite possibly their semi-dedicated servers that they offer, where you get a minimum of 20% up to 50% CPU usage (as well as RAM), and plenty of SSD-speeds disk space. These semi-dedicated plans are the solution to small and medium sized businesses that have some activity on their web pages, yet they always seem to run slow. In expensive, no experience necessary to use, and comes with excellent security features as well. They also have VPS accounts, containing 1-4GB of RAM, and also being similarly cheap to go along with a minimum of 2TB traffic for all virtual servers (up to 8 terabytes of transfer!)
Limited live tech support options
They have 24/7 support availability, but it must be done through the ticket system. While they have U.S. and U.K. phone numbers listed, as well as a live chat, they are only for sales purposes and not for technical support. They also have a comprehensive, in-house FAQ system that answers many questions, though mostly basic ones. ALotSpace also has social media pages but they don't utilize them, with virtually no activity on either Twitter or Facebook.
Very affordable hosting
I love how cheap their shared plans are, starting at just 3.99 per month and including a free domain for a year and unlimited disk and bandwidth, though you can only host one more additional add-on domain on them. Of course, that price is for a yearly purchase. The minimum you can make is a 3-month purchase, which doesn't come with a free domain and costs $5.99 per month. Their other two shared plans, costing $5.99 and 14.99 per month, both are also the same deal: price goes up if you purchase 3 months rather than a year. Those plans come with a domain name for LIFE if you get the yearly plan, though, so I definitely would.
Their VPS plans cost $10 to $40 a month, though obviously with a yearly purchase. (You CAN purchase only a month of these if you wish). As for the semi-dedicated servers, they are anywhere between $15 to $35.99 per month, which is an ideal price to host a personal or business website.
High quality hosting
While they are called ALotSpace, they also offer a lot of speed. They have plans that will allow your websites to run faster and more responsive then most other hosts, with servers running on cloud disk space and RAM, connected to Tier-1 high speed networks, allowing for ultimate speeds and optimization. Even their shared servers are extremely quick. All around, from the cheapest to the most expensive plan they offer, you get a great value for the price.
