Uptime & Reliability
Good reliable hosting
Their website uptime is guaranteed 99.9% and is currently at 99.91% based on WebHostingStuff’s uptime verification. This is a pretty high and reliable uptime, and given they do not oversell their servers, an uptime like this should be expected.
Almost all features are included in base prices
Good ticketing system and knowledge base
It is not clear if their support system is available 24/7, but they do have a ticketing system if you are unable to find answers or solutions in their database. Ticket inquiries are separated out in billing and technical topics. There does not seem to be any concern from customers regarding the company’s response time to ticket inquiries, and their knowledgebase seems fairly thorough.
Affordable pricing options for most types of hosting
Starter hosting packages begin at $2.50 a month and come with a free domain if you pay for the year in full. Higher power options go up to $9.95 and offer free domain registration if the plans are paid on a quarterly, bi-yearly, or yearly basis. They also offer professional webhosting from $24.95 a month that offers a much more involved service depending on your needs. Web hosting on this site is not oversold, so your websites will be readily available, and with no overselling, this company’s pricing is fairly inexpensive for what you get. Domain pricing starts at $9.99 a year for a .com address, and this is a little lower than average compared to other hosting sites. Web Design services are quoted on an as-needed basis, and seem to be fairly reasonable.
