Host4ASP.net is a young, but fast growing .net and asp.net hosting site based out of the Chicago, Illinois. They are fully .net and asp.net focused, Microsoft recognized, and have the latest Microsoft technology available. They provide top level data centers with fully redundant power supply, diesel generators, and N+1 power in order to ensure server availability. Professional technicians are there 24/7 to monitor the datacenters to catch and resolve all issues right away. They are very much focused on this particular type of hosting, and offer only plans that reflect their capacity to host. There are not too many options for their plans, but they do come feature loaded and with 24/7 support. They have 3 different Windows hosting packages in addition to SSD hosting for their US customers, hosting based out of Hong Kong, and SSL certificates.
Uptime & reliability
Nice 99.9% uptime guarantee
This company has a focus on reliability and chooses their servers and infrastructure to be able to reflect that. They promise to provide each website with at least 99.9% uptime to ensure there is no downtime.
Wide range of features in their packages
Their smallest, basic Windows hosting package for the both the US and Hong Kong may be best for individuals or small businesses as it comes with one website, 10GB of disk space, 10 email accounts and 256MB of site memory. The “Advance” hosting package comes with 6 websites, 30 email accounts, unlimited disk space, data transfer, and concurrent connections. Their most powerful plan comes with unlimited websites, disk space, data transfer, and email accounts. Also included is a free domain, a free SSL certificate, and a free dedicated IP. Their SSD hosting options are the same, but come with faster webpage load speeds. For an additional price, you may add a dedicated IP to the basic and advance plans, and they also have domain registration services. They also have SSL certificates sold separately if needed.
Good support 24/7/365
Host4Asp.net provides a high level of customer support to stay on top of industry standards. They have 24/7/365 support via live chat, phone, or their ticketing system. There is a live chat bubble on their pages that says “Live help is online…” the whole time I was on their page. They don’t really provide much in the way of ‘self help’ features, which may be disappointing for some people.
Fair pricing with a money back guarantee
Windows hosting plans start at $3.95 a month if you pay for a year in advance. The more years you pay in advance, the deeper discount you get for each of their plans. SSD hosting starts at $4.95 a month, again, if you purchase 3 years in advance, otherwise, a 1 year plan will run you $5.95 a month. Domain registration costs $12.95 a month with this company, and is right on average with what other hosting companies charge. Also, for their smaller plans, you can pay an additional $2 for a dedicated IP address. An SSL certificate for 1 year costs $59.99 to protect one website, but again, if you pay for a few years in advance, you will get a bulk discount. They have more certificate options based on what you need for your sites. Even with the discounts, prices are fairly average compared to other shared hosting sites. You get a lot of features in their plans, reliable support, and a very high uptime guarantee. They have a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase. They strive to act promptly and quickly resolving all matters regarding any concerns you may have.
Good hosting for small to medium sized sites
Feature loaded hosting plans and a dedicated technical service team are what make this company an industry leader in .net hosting. They do not offer many more hosting options besides shared and SSD hosting, so if you are looking for something more specific, this may not be the company for you. However, their plans are very reasonably priced and would make a good option for start-ups or individuals looking to grow. Pros:
I had some audio file and they removed it without telling me and I didn't have backups. I emailed them and this was the respond: "According to our regulations, the shared hosting can not be used for media or image sharing or storage disk. We found that you uploaded a large number of MP3 to store on the server, which is against the rules." I created a ticket and they have answered after 34 hours. The admin colsole was down three time in the last two months. I have paid for three years and will go to find a different one.
I have used Host4ASP.NET for half a year to host my nopCommerce store site. I am very satisfied with what I've received from them. Their support representatives are quite friendly and can give me instant response even I contact them very late. Thanks Host4ASP.NET! You guys rock!
I don't have to write another bad review on this atrocious company. You can find literally hundreds of bad reviews. I chose to ignore the bad reviews to my own detriment. Can't see how this website rates them as decent!
The "support" is not such, just ignorant guys telling whatever, if there is an issue with the server settings literally there is nobody to fix it. They answer the tickets with something like "yea yea", and for some reason they never look open, just answered, I have no idea how I am going to get rid of them, if I will get the money back or not.
I stupidly pre-paid for a year of service. By the end of the first day, I asked for a full refund, but they insisted that it would all get better. I decided to give them a 2nd chance. By day 4, all 12 of my client sites dropped and were down for 48 hours. Their support is crap. I switched providers in the middle of that chaos, and started the refund process. To this day, they have never paid me. I have requested my money dozens of times. DON'T USE THEM.
If you payed by PayPal, open a case over there. I did the same last week after waiting more than a month requesting a refund. Just received my full payment from PayPal, I guess they know they are an unworthy company.
