Terrible Service

1.6
Customer service is terrible. I wouldn't recommend Christian Web Host for anything. Any time they have any sort of migration they are down for days and so is your site and email. Not worth the money you might save with all the headaches.

Expert Overview

Hosting focused on Christian individuals and businesses

Christian Web Host is a discount-oriented hosting provider with a focus on, of course, Christian users and businesses.  Domain name packages, VPS, and Shared web hosting are offered, as are Postini email defense which offers 98% effective spam protection as well as issuing SSL certificates.  Located in St. Petersburg, FL and leased data center space in Upper Arlington and Columbus, OH, San Diego, CA, Christian Web Host was established in 1997 which certainly places them on the list for “long-established” hosting companies.

Their Christian-focused business statement explains their calling to provide outstanding quality services while helping Christian customers with their data center and hosting needs.  With a “total solutions” approach and a variety of web-based applications along with hosting, Christian Web Hosting has established a strong presence for a sizable niche customer base.

Uptime & Reliability

Good reliable hosting

With leased data center space in multiple locations, fiber-optic connections and name-brand equipment, along with the third party partnerships, Christian Web Host would seem to be able to offer customers a solid and reliable platform with which to maintain and develop their web presence. Oddly, operational claims of “99.9% uptime”, which is standard fare on the majority of hosting sites are absent on Christian Web Host’s site.  However, data center information lists support personnel are on site 24/7.

Features

Many nice features to help allow for custom hosting solutions

Christian Web Host offers VPS-based and shared web hosting services, backing up their customer’s operations with guaranteed storage space for all services and memory allotments as well as equal share processors and 2 IP addresses for VPS and FTP, virtual and MySQL databases for Shared Hosting.

Data equipment is connected across their multiple locations with a 10Gbps fiber-optic networks.  Web servers are Dell equipment running Linux; Cisco routers and switches are utilized as is IBM’s Tivoli storage manager. Christian Web Host lists partnerships with Qwest communications and DataCenter101 to enhance their hosting solutions and offer redundancy at multiple levels.

Two management suites are offered: Parallels Plesk Panel 9 or cPanel 11, both offer compatibility with major software platforms such as Apache, MediaWiki, Joomla, Perl, PHP, Python and MySQL to name a few.

Email is offered as a web solution and works with Thunderbird, Entourage and Outlook as well as many other packages.

Support

Good support options available

A dashboard for network availability and vital statistics is linked off the help desk page. Customers can submit tickets electronically, call support personnel directly 24 and robust FAQ page is also displayed.  Links to video tutorials and third-party documentation are also kept on the support page.

Pricing

Slightly over priced

Christian Web Host offers hosting packages starting at $9.95 per month; this starter package includes 100,000 MB of data transfer and 100 POP email accounts along with many other features.  SSL service is offered with the mid-range and top-level service packages which start at $14.95 and $19.95, respectively, per month.  While no contract is required, discounts of approximately 15%-25% can be realized by paying for 12 months at start-up.

Summary

Good hosting focused on customer satisfaction

Christian Web Host seems to offer a solid foundation for their services along with a distinctly “customer-first” approach.  While a Christian-based operation may deter some customers, it would seem likely that many Christian families and businesses would be quick to sign up with Christian Web Host.  Oddly, a term of service agreement, which would seemingly be more restrictive in regards to content, linked sites, etc. is not displayed.

Many of the testimonials posted are from customers dating back to 1999, which indicates that Christian Web Host is a company that provides quality services and support as advertised.

Pros:

  • Multiple data center locations
  • Customers report high satisfaction with services

Cons:

  • No Terms of Service listed
  • No Windows platforms supported
