They have more datacenters slated to open to add more customer choices. Domain services are also available at a yearly price and services include transfer and registration.
Good support 24/7/365
Support is offered 24/7/365 to provide customers with peace of mind in case any emergencies or concerns arise. They have a ticketing center to address concerns, and no knowledgebase or customer forum.
A little over priced for some options
With unlimited features on all of their plans, they only have one plan for each hosting option. Shared hosting runs $3.95 a month if you purchase 3 years, otherwise, a month to month shared plan is $6.95. Cloud hosting runs at $39.95 a month, unless you purchase multiple years in advance, then you get a discount. SSD Cloud hosting is $49.95 on a month to month basis, but like the others, if you purchase multiple years in advance, you get a discount off the main price.
Overall, pricing is a bit on the more expensive side for limited options, however, feature loaded and straight forward plans make it easy to host your websites if you are looking for minimal maintenance hosting options. Domain pricing, however, is fairly standard at $12.99 a year for registration or transfer for .com, .net, .org and other addresses.
Easy to understand yet good hosting
HostMyth offers very simple, easy to use hosting options with plenty of unlimited features for your web hosting and design needs. Simple hosting options are great for customers looking to minimally maintain their sites, but individuals looking for more control over their web hosting may need to look elsewhere. Pricing is fairly reasonable and is reflective of the simplistic but feature loaded hosting options. A dedicated team of support technicians is available 24x7 in case any concerns arise.
