Overview

A Powerful Solution From an Established Company

Catalyst2 have quite an extravagant name that you immediately think offers a powerful hosting solution, and that’s bang on the truth. They have been around since the start of the Millennium and have won many awards of the years for their shared, dedicated and reseller hosting accounts. They keep information simple, support basic, and prices very competitive.

Reliability

A Catalyst of Strong and Powerful Security Features

Catalyst have a page dedicated to their infrastructure which offers you insight into their network, hardware and level of uptime. The network has been built from the ground upwards and provides a high level of security, along with regular backups of your website.

A 99.9% network uptime is in place and redundant firewalls will help you block traffic to your server.

Features

Plenty of Disk Space and Email Accounts

If we take a look at the web hosting plans on offer, Catalyst offer a total of 5 packages with a variety of different levels of features and tools. The entry level plan which they have called the Mega Deal plan will provide you with 500MB of disk space, 5GB transfer rate, a database, scripting, and also IMAP/POP3 accounts.

By having 5 plans you also have the opportunity to scale up to a plan that best suits you, so the top end plan gives 150 IMAP/POP3, 160GB data transfer, 8GB disk space, and up to 10 hosted domains.

Support

A Collection of Support and Contact Routes

There are plenty of useful routes to take when it comes to looking for support channels or contact details at Catalyst2. The support area offers company news, downloads, service status, trouble-shooters, a ticketing system and even a knowledgebase. The knowledgebase consists of over 100 guides on everything from databases to web hosting basics.

There are also a number of freephone numbers for UK customers, and telephone numbers for those that are calling outside of the UK. Email support is available alongside live chat and postal addresses.

Pricing

Competitively Priced Even Higher Tiered Plans

Prices are definitely on par and even better than most hosting providers, as the starter plan comes in at £11.99 per YEAR, which means you will be paying less than £1 each month. What you get for that £1 is also impressive, and can tempt in many people and small businesses that need an online presence.

Even the higher tiered plans come in at a decent price with the highest plan costing £12.99 per month or £129.99 for the full year if you pay up front.

User-Friendly

A Colourful and Pleasant Website

The site is very colourful to say the least, but not in a bad way. The top navigation gives you all the links to sections of the site you will need to access, and each hosting plan is nicely broken down into a colour scheme for each level of package offered.

There is no mention of cPanel anywhere which is a downside, but everything else that Catalyst provides is intuitive and user-friendly.

Summary

Giving a Helping Hand to Businesses WorldWide

Catalyst2 is an intuitive web hosting company that sets itself up to help small and mid-to-large scale organisations get hosted, and get hosted fast! Prices are very good and are ideal for those on a tight budget or an individual looking to deploy an idea, and they have a good infrastructure in place to keep your site running smoothly and efficiently.
