Uptime & Reliability
Excellent uptime guarantee
In their features and plans section, they guarantee a 99.9% uptime, but a WebHostingStuff.com widget on their page shows a 99.98% uptime, which is an excellent uptime. A quick check on their page shows most months at 100%, which is great. There also does not seem to be too many customer complaints, and they really strive to avoid this by offering a very generous money back guarantee.
Good features for entry level sites
Easiest Web Hosting’s plan is very straightforward and simple to use. They want to offer simple web hosting, so by doing that, they have one plan that is upgradeable upon request. Their plan includes 1GB of disk space and 10GB of bandwidth a month, the ability to add unlimited domains, unlimited email accounts, access to over 3000 web templates, and keyword research software. They also have QuickInstall for you to quickly install blogs, content management systems, e-commerce, forums and more features onto your website.
With limited hosting size options, this may not be the best option for a very involved company or one looking to grow very large without transferring services elsewhere, however, it is very feature loaded and might be a good choice for smaller or personal hosting sites. They also offer blog start up packages with 100MB of storage and 1GB of bandwidth a month. Additionally, they have domain registration services if you are looking to do that. They also offer a few free hosting gifts with a number of few PDFs with hosting tips and tricks to help your business succeed.
Limited support options
This company does not seem to have 24/7 live support, presumably because of the size of their company. They do, however, have a ticketing system, but it is unclear what their response time is for those tickets. They also have a fairly extensive self-help knowledgebase to help solve client issues. Their company is very self-help focused.
Reasonable pricing options
Pricing is fairly straightforward at $4.14 USD a month, or $44.64 annually, which is very inexpensive. Their pricing is definitely reflective of what they offer, which is very simple, straight forward services. Their small blog hosting packages are only $0.93 a month, or around $10 a year. Domain registration starts around $9.50 a year for a .info address, and $10.69 for a .com address. Their registration prices are on the less expensive side, as a lot of other hosting companies offer domain registration for around $12-14 a year. They offer a 45 day unconditional money back guarantee, and also if you have any other problems, they will refund a month of hosting plus give you a free month depending on your issue.
Nice hosting option for entry level sites
Easiest Web Hosting is a good option for small businesses, start-ups and personal sites as they only offer one plan. However, that plan does come with many unlimited features, many downloads and additional freebies. They have a very high guaranteed uptime, but no 24/7 support.
