Take our little joke about Amazon above. If Amazon decided to host its website using HostGator’s unmetered Hatchling Plan for a couple of dollars per month, Amazon would crash the server it was running on. But more important to Amazon, crashing the server means that its website becomes unavailable, costing them millions of dollars.
Baby and Business plans allow unlimited domains to be hosted within the account. However, if you are selling hosting to your own clients, you must use a Reseller (or above) account; hosting paying customers on a Baby or Business account is forbidden.
Because we offer what is known as a shared architecture, our customers share both the hardware and the “pipes” we use to transmit data across the web, so we do monitor bandwidth to ensure optimum performance for our customers. Again, we are able to support more than 99.5% of customers with no issues at all. However, in some wonderful cases, customers become so successful that their traffic and data transfer outgrow our shared architecture. When that happens, we work with the customer to identify scalable solutions, such as our Virtual Private Servers.
If you’re using a business credit card to place your order, the wait can be longer. We found that some companies needed additional information to verify our identity: discrepancies between your name and the card name can raise red flags for fraud. Usually, you’ll need to make a 10 minute phone call to the company’s billing department and provide a scan of a government-issued ID to straighten things out.
You have the ability to create a backup of your entire cPanel account at any time. Upon completion of the backup, you will be provided with a download link. You can use this backup to restore your account on our servers if needed.

Unlike VPS hosting, which is limited by the physical server on which your website is hosted, cloud hosting allows you to use resources offered by multiple machines. For example, if you find that your website is lagging because of lack of bandwidth, you can increase the amount available to you. Often, you can make this change yourself via the host’s control panel.
So, with all that, you’d think they wouldn’t pay much attention to the lower-end entry-level plans. But you’d be wrong. One of the things that sets Multacom apart is that the company offers shared Windows hosting starting at $7.95. If you want to run Windows (or, more likely, IIS and various .ASP capabilities), this is a great way to get a start, or set up a testing or staging server for development.
The reviews and web hosting ratings on this site have been collected over many years from many different sources. Many have been obtained from web hosting forums and discussion boards, some from customers just like you and me that have been willing to share their experience, and quite a number have been reviewed by ourselves.
We collect, vet and publish reviews from real users, so you can get a better picture of what a host is like, both in terms of product quality and customer service — you won’t be swayed the wrong way by one-offs (whether good or bad)!
Sounds good? Not so fast. The devil is in the details, and the details can be found in the hosting provider’s terms of service (TOS). Luckily for all of us, pretty much every TOS says the same thing: you can’t abuse their servers.
GlowHost is almost identical to FastComet, but its user resources are less comprehensive and better suited to experienced web developers. Still, it stood out thanks to its extremely knowledgable and friendly customer service reps.

i want to have my own domain name ending .co.uk .com .org or .net and to build a website for free. I’m concerned that if i start to build with one of the providers listed above, then decide i don’t like it, I’ll be stuck with them – can that happen? Also, a lot of providers seem to give with one hand while taking with the other – eg they lure you in with a free domain and then charge for hosting / bandwidth / uploads etc. I want to realise somewhere down the line that i now have to pay to maintain a website i thought i was building for free. Are there any of the above without hidden costs?
Viewen suspended my account. Accused me of phishing when i was not even asking anyone for personal information at all. They claim unlimited storage and I uploaded 6GB of courses I had and that made them take my service down. I would not recommend this service to anyone. They take forever to answer, too. When you start, they ask what domain you want to register, like if they offered TLDs, I then discovered that they don’t so I had to go register a domain somewhere else.

You’ve got to keep an eye on both of these metrics because they indicate your site’s quality of performance. Uptime refers to the total time that your website is up and running with no problems. Downtime refers to when the time when your website is offline and unavailable to visitors and potential customers.
Almost all the services offer some sort of page builder that makes it easy to drag and drop to build your page. These are great for getting started, but they often lock you into the service. Most page builders are proprietary to the service, or don’t create HTML that’s portable enough to be easily moved to another service if you decide it’s necessary.
WordPress hosting is for people who want to build their sites on the back of the popular WordPress content management system (CMS). Many WordPress hosts automatically handle backend stuff, so you don’t have to worry about updating the apps and CMS, and enabling automatic backups.
I was given a space on a web hosting site and a domain name (sandypondny.com) by my daughter years ago. She provided a program (FrontPage 2000) and I created a nice little website for family friends and ex-coworkers. To my dismay FrontPage is no longer supported on that site and will be up for auction. So, I went to another low priced hosting provider and purchased a domain name(sandypondny.net), and found that their frontpage extensions would not work anymore. Now I am in limbo. Do you know of any place I can get hosting for my website in FrontPage that is free, or a couple dollars per month, that will have and continue to support my FrontPage 2000 web site?
For example, you may certainly contact your host at any time, but when are they available to respond to your questions and concerns? How long will it take for someone to get back to you? Will there be someone to help you if your mission-critical website goes down at 3:00 in the morning? What language(s) do your host providers speak? Support in Malagasy is probably essential if you live and work in Madagascar, but fairly useless if you are in North America.
