Expert Overview

Very simple shared hosting company

ePow Host has been in business since 2003, and they focus on providing quality shared hosting to small to medium sized businesses.  They claim to be one of the world's major hosting companies and say that they have web hosting available around the world. They are based out of Houston, TX.  I was unable to identify exactly where their data centers are located. They only offer two hosting packages, so they really try to keep it simple for their customers.  Both of the options are shared hosting, and there really isn't too much of a major difference between the two packages.  For individuals or companies that just need very basic hosting for their site, this is a good company to consider. Anyone who wants something a little more powerful, or thinks that they may grow into something bigger, may want to opt for another company.

Uptime & Reliability

Reliable shared hosting services

This company offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee to all their customers.  They don't really lay out what will happen if they don't meet that guarantee, which typically means you will get a one for one rebate on your bill.  This is nice, but really doesn't add up to much in any practical terms. From what I was able to find from social media and other sources, however, the hosting does seem to be quite stable so this isn't likely something you will need to worry about.

Features

No-Frills hosting

There is really nothign too fancy about this company when it comes to features.  You'll get very standard amounts of storage (300 gigs) and traffic (3 TB) on the standard package, and for the professional package you get unlimited of both.  They do limit the number of email accounts you can set up on the standard package, which is unusual.  That too is unlimited when you move up to the pro package. Additional features include nightly backups, cPanel for the control panel, a web based file manager, optional dedicated IPs and more.  The live support chat feature is only for the pro pack.

Support

Quality support but limited live options

If you have any type of technical issues the support team will likely be able to help you with them. You will need to use their ticketing system or eamil, however, as they don't provide phone based support.  They also don't offer live chat to their lower hosting package.

Pricing

Good pricing if you pay for a year or longer

This company is quite expensive if you are paying month to month.  You do have the option to pay every 3 months, 6 months, 12 months or 24 months too, and the longer you go, the lower the monthly rate will be.  You can actually save well over 50% if you go for two years, so it makes sense to go that route. All accounts get a free year of a domain name included with the pack, which is nice.  Upgrading and downgrading between the hosting packages is also free and easy.

Summary

Very simple hosting for basic sites

If you are just looking to get good, reliable hosting without any overly complicated features or too many hosting packages, this is an excellent option.  They are clearly targeting a niche audience of people or businesses who just need simple hosting services. Pros:

  • Money back guarantee
  • Very simple package options
  • Reliable hosting

Cons:

  • Have to pay for long periods of time to get good prices
  • Live chat support is only for pro customers
  • No phone support
