On your own

Service used: Shared
I was consistently having issues with server response time that they were unable to solve. If you're ok with staring at a blank screen for 8-10 seconds before your site starts to load this is the host for you.

Stay far away from Certified Hosting

Service used: Shared
I used to host about 40 sites at Certified Hosting. And one day all sites just said "Index of /" when visiting them.

The server had deleted all my files. The worst part is that their backups they were supposed to have didn't work! I lost everything! We're talking about years of work.

Expert Overview

Good quality hosting with multiple US locations

CertifiedHosting.com is a California web-based hosting company offering a variety of professional hosting and reseller programs. Their highly attentive team specializes in web and domain management services using a high quality network for your website. CertifiedHosting.com has two centralized data centers in Atlanta, GA and Phoenix, AZ. Their company has won the award for Best Unlimited Host and 100 Best INC.'s Top Hosting Providers.

Uptime & Reliability

Good, reliable hosting

CertifiedHosting.com  runs on a safe encrypted server and guarantees 99%  24/7 uptime and security for your domain. Their network runs on two separate power connections and back up generators. They provide multiple connections to a Tier 1 carrier for accelerated speed and data transferring.


Three basic plans with some add on options

CertifiedHosting.com offers three different types of hosting plans to choose from. You have the option of choosing between their Dork plan, Geek plan or Nerd plan. All three plans include unlimited disk space and bandwidth, unlimited sub domains as well as unlimited email accounts. The difference between their three plans is based on the amount of domains on the account. Dork plan offers single domain registry. Geek and Nerd offer unlimited domains. With the Nerd plan you are also given a free dedicated IP and Private SSL. You may also pay for addons to either account but you would be paying more than what the Nerd plan offers if you were to just sign up for that plan originally. CertifiedHosting.com web hosting plans are very straight forward and all share the same amount of features. If you are interested in reselling or in need of dedicated servers for your company, CertifiedHosting.com also offers 100% managed servers with full support and installation of either server you choose from. There is three different levels of dedicated servers. They have entry level, mid ranged managed servers and pro series. The difference between the three plans is based on the amount of ram, bandwidth and series of intel processors. Their customer support is unmatched. When it comes to committing to a hosting provider, customer support is very important. It is important to have a live dedicated team that will help you troubleshoot if you ever run into an issue. I really admire companies that use live support as a means of communication. You can quickly have a question answered right off the website by simply clicking the live chat button located on their webpage. They also have chat support by phone, email, support ticket and also through social media.


Easy to contact support teams

This company offers several options to get in touch with them for technical support.  You can use their toll-free phone number, email or even submit a tech support ticket, which they get back to you on quickly. They also offer support through their Twitter account, which is quite nice.  Overall, their tech support is very good.


Easy to understand pricing options

CertifiedHosting.com has a very transparent price structure. Their costs per service is very competitive compared to other larger name hosting companies. There is a small set up of $5.00 if you pay monthly for the dork plan. Their Dork plan starts at $3.95/mo. Geek plan is $3.48/mo and their Nerd plan is $11.95/mo. If you need upgrades or additional add ons to your hosting plan you can do so at anytime. Additional fees will apply. The greatest feature is their anytime money back guarantee. Many companies only offer a 30 day or 45 day money back guarantee. CertifiedHosting.com also offers a price match guarantee on their website. You can simply toggle between well known hosting providers and compare prices. If your business operates multiple websites then CertifiedHosting.com  Reseller plan is the right choice for you. They are perfect for people who want to resell web hosting accounts commercially with their own web design or web hosting  company. There is 3 different type of plans to choose from all varying in storage and bandwidth. Prices range from $19.95 to $49.95 a month.


Very nice hosting option

I recommend CertifiedHosting.com for their web hosting and reseller services based on their price structure and amount of unlimited hosting features they make available to you at an affordable price. They have a dedicated technical support and sales team that will help navigate you through any issue or concern. Pros:

  • Fair prices
  • Great live support
  • Many great resources


  • Additional set up fee on the 'Dork' plan
  • Long term commitment required for the 'Geek' plan
