Shared hosting focused on small ecommerce sites
Bizza Mamma Hosting started their business in 2009 out of Houston, Texas. Their main customers are stay at home moms who are looking to start their own small business, often out of their home. With this goal, they offer quite a few different eCommerce features that will help them set up a site where they can sell their products quickly and easily. The data center is also located in Texas, and is powered primarily by wind energy, which makes it a very green facility. The whole company seems to try to be more of a family with their clients than just a hosting provider. The owners have their bios and other information about themselves and their family to help drive home that they are really there to help you. In addition to just the hosting services, they also provide website building help, and a lot of stay at home mom resources that can help you to build your business.
Uptime & Reliability
Simple but stable hosting
This company doesn’t provide anything fancy for their hosting, but overall they do a good job at keeping their servers up and running. Their data center seems to be quite nice and operates well so you won’t likely expedience any downtime related to data center issues. From what I have read, they also use nice servers to help ensure a stable experience. BizzyMamaHosting seems to recognize the fact that eCommerce businesses need reliable hosting, and have done a good job in this area.
Fairly basic hosting with some nice eCommerce perks
With this company the hosting is just one of many services that you’ll get. Most of them, however, are more about running your business than just your hosting services. This is certainly a good thing for those who are hoping to open an eCommerce business or expand an existing business onto the internet. For the hosting, they just have a few basic shared hosting packages to choose from. None of them have too many extras, but most people won’t need them. This is a niche focused company so if you are a stay at home mom (or dad) and just need help with hosting and growing your business, this may be a great option to choose.
Good support but no 24/7 live options
If you’re having a problem you will be able to get it fixed very quickly in most cases. The customers who have commented in this area seem to be happy with the service for the most part. The one down side is that they don’t have 24/7 live chat or phone options, which some people will miss. Their ticketing system, however, gets quick responses. They have a lot of really great self-help options including video tutorials and other posts. They also have a lot of self-help for your small business.
Expensive for hosting, but great for small business
If you are looking only at the price for the hosting services, this company is quite over priced. The fact is, however, that you also get a lot of really nice services that are designed to help people who are starting businesses in their homes or growing their business online. These services can be quite valuable, so when that is factored in, the price actually seems quite fair. Of course, this is only true of people who will use these extra non-hosting related services.
Quality hosting for small businesses
If you are a stay at home mom looking for a hosting company to start your eCommerce business, this very well could be the best option. They seem very supportive and helpful for all their customers in this area. If you’re just looking for normal hosting, however, there are many better options. Pros:
- Niche focused on small business and stay at home moms
- Lots of small business options
- Simple hosting options
- Hosting itself is somewhat over priced
- No VPS or higher hosting
