AwardSpace Hosting Review

Awardspace Webhosting and Reselling Options

Awardspace is a webhosting provider with over 1 million customers worldwide. It was created by its two mother companies, Zetta Hosting Solutions ltd. and AttractSoft GmbH. Packages for web hosting start with its free option which comes with 250MB disk space, 5GB of traffic, 1 domain hosting with 3 sub-domains and is 100% free of advertisements. This option is supported by FTP access, an email address SMTP and 1 email with spam filter.

It also offers advice on the pros and cons between free hosting and paid for sites, the latter of which is also offered. They also give information on both shared SSL Certificates and IP in contrast to private options for both. Users are encouraged to look at the benefits of both options and the site can provide for either. There are also VPS hosting options which are provided by the site. If a user chooses to obtain a SSL certificate, specialized support is offered in addition to the standard 24 hour support given for site maintenance. Support and advice is also offered on privacy protection for transmitting information.

Whether registering a new domain name or transferring an existing one, the free script installer, Zackytools Installer 50+ php, allows equally simple procedures for both. A free site builder for new users makes setting up an initial layout very straightforward. The additional services provided by the SEO and SMO teams make marketing less of a headache for novices and there are advertising packages for research into, and then selection of, appropriate keyword linking.

Reseller hosting is offered for both free shared hosting and paid shared hosting, and Virtual Private Servers are available also. Both primary domains and sub-domains are on offer and SSL certification can be added as a service for reselling. Users are not required to buy stock up front, but can purchase as and when their customers require anything. Affiliate programs allow users of Awardspace to earn money through referral and its affiliate program. Any free or paying new customer who arrives at the site from an affiliate’s web link or banner will earn money for the affiliate at the point of purchase (or sign up for free users).
