Great hosting with some free options
BuyWebHosting is a site offering free and paid webhosting plans in addition to domain registration. They have free and inexpensive shared, reseller, VPS and dedicated hosting for differing needs, and offer paid plans with varying levels of bandwidth and storage based on client needs. Additionally, they offer domain registration, transfer and renewal, and with all of their plans, you get a free domain for life. Many of their packages offer many unlimited features, even with free plans.
They claim they are a leading provider of hosting services, but is a fairly young company only having starting up in the beginning of 2013. They have servers based in the United States and the United Kingdom in order to target a larger market which seem to help them with their pricing and availability. Client testimonials state quick, professional, and friendly services with ease of use for their products.
Uptime & Reliability
Very reliable, especially for a free/cheap hosting provider
This company offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee. On their homepage, they say they are very concerned about uptime and constantly are having another company monitor their uptime in order to minimize server interruptions. Additionally, with their load balancing technology and fast backbone connections, BuyWebHosting says they are able to eliminate downtime by relying on multiple servers in case one fails.
Nice features focused on ease of use
BuyWebHosting offers free hosting that include free domains, 100mb of bandwidth and a few email accounts. Paying packages offer higher levels of each of these services. Shared, reseller, and VPS hosting all have differing package deals and unlimited web space and bandwidth for a small monthly fee. Their packages are fairly basic and do not offer much customization and seem to be geared more towards first time web hosting customers. Additionally, they have a few options for free software that is included in their packages such as WordPress, Joomla!, and Drupal.
BuyWebHosting also offers domain transferring and registration, and depending on which package you choose determines how many domains, accounts, subdomains and other features you can have. All of their services include instant activation and setup as well as customer support. They offer fairly basic package options and these are good if you are looking for a start-up or potentially just hosting your own personal website.
Limited Support Options
This company does not seem to have 24/7 support though you may contact them through a ticketing system, email, or phone via contact information on their website. You may also contact them through the client portal if you are a registered user. If you prefer to find out answers to a problem yourself or are searching for minor or simple fixes, they do have a knowledgebase that you may search for answers.
Paid packages are very affordable
Basic paid packages start at $2.55 a month and go up from there depending on your power needs. Domain registration and transfer starts at $14.59 a year for a .com address, and depending on what you are looking for, prices go up from there. Prices are very affordable and many plans offer unlimited disk space, unlimited email accounts, and the ability to host unlimited domains. They offer automatic renewal for all plans and domain registration to ensure your site and data stay up and protected. All plans come with a 45-day money back guarantee, which is a longer guarantee time than most sites I have come across.
Simple and affordable hosting
BuyWebHosting is a fairly straightforward inexpensive hosting company with free packaging options as well. Their free packages are fairly limited, but are simple and easy to use. Their packages are fairly straightforward and are easy to use if that is what you are looking for. If you are looking for more control over your site and more customizability and options, then this is not the best site. They also do not offer any certificates or other web services, and do not have 24/7 support.
