GoDaddy Hosting Review

A Sneak Peek into the GoDaddy World

One of the fastest growing names in the SSL, web hosting and domain industry is GoDaddy; initially named Jomax Technologies by founder Bob Parsons in 1997. The final change in name happened in 1999 following a thorough brainstorming by a group of then employees. Besides availability, the decision was also based on the domain name’s ability to create a smile on anyone’s face at the mere mention, making it very easy to remember. Having sole operating rights and ownership of their own equipment and services, the company has managed to maintain high quality services at comparably lower prices. The big break happened in 2007 when the company was allowed to advertize during the Super Bowl; since then, a follow-up using comely female commercial models and the addition of 24/7 customer support team have ensured  the renowned success they experience today.

In terms of site building, the company’s Website Tonight was able to help thousands of individuals with minimal technical skills, in building and launching their own sites. For those who prefer professional services, a trusted design team is readily available to design professional and sleek websites. Virtual dedicated and dedicated shared hosting packages are also being offered at a reasonable price. The company’s data servers feature integrated fire and monitoring systems, top notch security system and a 24-hour expert onsite staff.

Creating secure and fast email accounts with a truly unique address and personal domain name is possible, allowing the email address to be easily remembered by friends, colleagues and clients.

On the business side, a complete line of marketing and eCommerce tools is designed for those with no programming background. Their current shopping cart site provides everything to make online sales possible; these services can be either used as an independent storefront or as addition to an already existing site. By simply paying a monthly fee, you can customize the product catalogue and after designing the site, everything will be ready for business.

SSL certificates ensure the websites security by encrypting the sensitive data that moves to and from the site. Thus, private information like credit card accounts and social security numbers cannot be intercepted by outside parties.

DreamHost Review

DreamHost Is a Great Place for Your Blog, Your Wallet and Your Planet’s Future

DreamHost is an innovative, West Coast based web hosting service and domain registrar that is becoming distinct from other hosting sites. The group is employee-owned and takes pride in the fact that it is not driven by stock sales or commissions. They’ve even banned cologne from their offices to show how alternative they are. DreamHost also claims to be green and totally carbon neutral; it is a member of the EPA’s Green Power Partnership Program.

As far as their hosting, they aren’t totally distracted with their unique set up and eco-friendly ways. They do offer complete packages with reasonable prices. Their monthly rates are as low as $8.95 for unlimited Bandwidth, 50GB storage, unlimited email and domain registration. They normally use a Debian Linux operating system, but they also offer application hosting that allows the user to work with WordPress, MediaWiki and Ruby on Rails at no extra cost. These can be used as a stepping stone between socially hosted blogging sites and their own domain with DreamHost. That is a service that makes many people more comfortable with the transition to being on their own.

They offer more than the basic services and have everything someone looking to build a site on a new host could want. Their control panel has been lauded by users as easy to use and understand. It has billing, support and notices built into the application for user set-up that was designed in house and is unique to DreamHost. Their customer service is excellent and more than 24/7; the staff has its own support with live chats and an official blog. They do not offer live calling service for customers to call them, but many plans offer callback options or it can be added for a fee.

DreamHost is innovative on several levels, especially with their company structure and green power system. Their webhosting services are extensive and affordable. Their platform is very user friendly and customer service is effective. It’s a great service for people starting out and want a great deal for their money. Very popular among up and coming bloggers, DreamHost is also great for people who want to go against the machine and save the planet too.

WebHostingPad Hosting Review

Webhostingpad Offers Exceptionally High Quality Services

Webhostingpad is a great hosting service; with a lot of connections and a constant stream of awards for its efforts. Their prices were recently slashed to $1.99 per month for a solid package of hosting services and file uploading. That low price does also include domain registration when the customer signs up for a biennial package. The $1.99 also includes unlimited Bandwidth, unlimited email addresses and no limit to the amount of domains the user can register. It gives immediate access to unlimited disk space on their Linux operating system, compatible with so many social and existing blog formats. Even with the low prices, they are known for having great up-time and a good distribution of users enabling the servers to be fast all the time, even peak hours.

Besides their great physical space, price and speed, among the services included for free are: 50 scripts compatible with WordPress, Joomla CRG and phpbb; marketing credits with Google, Yahoo, Facebook and MyAds; and ecommerce readiness for services like OS Commerce, Magento, Authorize.Net and Zen cart.

The control panel offered with Webhostingpad, CPanel, is easy to use and has its own RVSitebuilder tool which features free images that most sites don’t. CPanel also has free scripts and software for use on their hosted sites. The big benefit of using these tools is that the staff knows and supports them.

One of the biggest reasons that Webhostingpad is one of the best for hosting is their customer service. Their customer service is exemplary and comes with a 24 hour hotline that incurs no extra charges. Their techs actually come to the phone, are U.S. based, and take their time to address your problem. With just under a million customers, maintaining that kind of service is a big plus to people considering using Webhostingpad to host their website. The biggest and most important proof of their excellence in customer service and services provided is that they have one of the lowest turnovers of customers in the entire industry. The recently changed prices have given some reviewers cause for concern about whether they will be able to afford to continue their high level of service, but so far, their packages are the best value around.

HostPapa Hosting Review

HostPapa: Looking Out for Customers and the Environment

Unlike most high quality webhosting providers, HostPapa stands out in terms of efficiency and affordability. This webhost service offers great deals for a great webhosting experience; this includes a free domain for life, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited disk space, a free setup that would normally cost around $29.95, cPanel Control Panel and a 30 day money back guarantee. The payment plans and options are also flexible and reliable. What sets this apart from most webhosting service providers is that it uses 100% Green Energy in web hosting. That is something that most webhost service providers fail to possess, an environment friendly webhosting service that helps save the environment by reducing the emissions produced from their servers.

This web host service provider looks after its customers by providing them high quality services at an affordable price.  It’s amazing how an affordable webhost provider can do so much for those who are planning to put up their very own websites to advertise their services and products. Small business owners can put up their desired website through the tools provided by the service. Even the most inexperienced web designer can make use of the web designing tools and customize their website any way they want to without any limits. Even if these inexperienced web designers or builders encounter problems, they can contact the customer service via phone, chat or email and the customer service representatives would quickly address the subscriber’s issues.

The internet is very dynamic and constant changes occur from time to time. Updating the website may be painstaking. Fortunately for those subscribing in this web hosting service, staying up to date may not be as difficult as it seems because the servers back up the data in the subscriber’s website just in case anything goes haywire. With a user friendly web design interface and a 24/7 quality customer service, who wouldn’t want to subscribe to their service? Though most web hosting services may offer similar features, none of them are as efficient in helping their customers get and maintain their desired website. Not only does HostPapa look after its customers, it also looks after the environment.

Dotster Hosting Review

Web Hosting Services Provided By Dotster

Dotster is a web hosting services which specializes in providing websites for individuals and small businesses that have the need of a website but lack technical knowledge to build a site from scratch.

Its web hosting options are broken down into two packages, the website building package and the business hosting package. The first package includes a web design service which is based on a template (the user chooses from a selection) that Dotster designers then help personalize. Domain registration is included along with advice on choosing a domain name; Linux hosting comes as standard and there is the option to add email addresses which feature the domain name of the account. The business package includes all of the above but in addition, uses a Plesk Linux VPS hosting service.

Users who register for either package also have access to four other services. Firstly the SEO marketing service starts with a consultation to identify needs, an analysis of the layout and functionality of the user’s site, keyword research specific to the nature of the site and then submission of the site to mainstream search engines. There is also the option to take advantage of website content optimization.

A local site promotion service allows users to target promotions of their site to specific regions, cities and even as specific as local neighborhoods. The payment structure is based on results as opposed to page impressions. This function allows the creation of online offers, such as unique coupons or offer codes, and the results of these, as well as that of the main promotion, are tracked and sent as daily activity reports.

An email marketing service is also provided which helps users build up newsletter and email campaigns. Again templates are provided, and support and guidance on content and layout are offered. These campaigns are also tracked and activity reports sent.

A sub site called DotsterConnect allows users to set up miniature social networking sites in addition to the main site; once again support on physical layout, promotion and functionality is provided. Features include, but are not restricted to, befriending, notifications, blogs, albums, articles, event creation and video and media support.
