Good hosting at a great price
CheapHostingBD offers a variety of hosting services such as shared servers, reseller accounts, VPS’, and dedicated servers. Unlike many competitors, they understand how tough the economy is and don’t try to nickel-and-dime their customers, which is why they offer some of the most affordable hosting plans on the internet. They don’t offer much other information regarding their company outside of the services hey offer, unfortunately.
Uptime & Reliability
99.9% uptime guarantee
CheapHostingBD offers a money back guarantee, a 99.9% uptime guarantee, as well as a 24/7 Support system. I’m not sure whether they mean their chat system — but that is not 24/7. Their ticket system isn’t slow, but I wouldn’t consider them the best support company in town. Thankfully a toll free number really helps, as you need to be able to contact a reliable host on the spot. With regards to the money back guarantee, it’s also a little murky as their feature list has it as a 30 day guarantee with any plan, but their guarantee list only has it as a 7 day. Either way, they help assure you of their functionality.
Surprisingly nice features provided
While they are own for their affordable pricing across all of their services, they aren’t just cheap plans. They are a great deal for the features and specs included, and give you bang for your buck. All plans have at least 10GB of bandwidth, even for the cheapest plans. They also offer add-on services to their hosting plans such as SSL Certificates and Dedicated IP’s. While their most expensive shared hosting plan only has 15GB of hard disk space, it has plenty of bandwidth and is ridiculously cheap, so overall a good value.
Their VPS feature OpenVZ setups with equal share CPU optimization. Anywhere between 512MB to 4GB of RAM is available, so there’s options for everyone. With quick set up times, RAID-10 Hard Disk’s while running on 100MBPS networks, their VPS offer great value. On the dedicated server side, you have range of budget options where you can select a Windows or Linux server, with disk space ranging from 500GB to 1TB. All of their dedicated servers feature 20GB of bandwidth. While setup time is 2-3 business days, it’s worth the wait.
Not the best support
CheapHostingBD has a live chat system but it is not 24/7. In fact, sometimes it isn’t even up during business hours, directing you to their ticket/email support system. In addition to that, their FAQ and knowledgeable is pretty much completely empty, with nothing useful included. At the very least they could’ve linked to websites that have common hosting and cPanel questions and answers. On the bright side, they do have a toll free number for you to call if you need rapid support.
Very good pricing options
This is their big selling point — as you probably see in the name. Their basic hosting plans actually begin at 99 cents per month, cheap by any standards. Unlike companies that just offer a couple of plans, you can get affordable shared hosting in the US or off-shore, or you can go towards their premium shared hosting plans which still don’t run for more than $9.99 monthly. Their reseller plans are equally as affordable, with the domestic ones starting at only $3.99 monthly. I see value in them, especially the higher quality reseller plans.
Compared to a few years ago, the rise of Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers has dominated the hosting sphere. That’s where CheapHostingBD comes in, as VPS and Dedi’s can be quite expensive, there is always a search for a quality, affordable service. You can get a VPS set up with them now for only $12.99 a month — great pricing. They have a wide range of bandwidth options to get you the perfect plan at a good price, their dedicated servers are just as cheap, starting at only $79.99 per month.
Overall nice hosting at a very attractive price
While there’s conflicting information on multiple faces of their website, I have to say that for the price, they are a great host. It’s almost impossible to find a reliable host you can call at anytime who offers 10GB of bandwidth for only a dollar. If you have SEO based pages that may be small but you hope to gather a lot of traffic, CheapHostingBD is exactly what you need. Whether you’re in the US, Asia, Europe, or elsewhere, it’s an affordable service. Who doesn’t like affordable?
