Myhosting.com Review

In a world full of web hosting companies, small to medium sized business owners have plenty of choices when it comes to their business website. But not all hosting companies are suitable for growing business websites.

Myhosting has been serving websites since 1997 and now has over 50,000 websites under management in over 170 countries. One reason they are so successful is the quality and variety of hosting plans that allow growth for any website, in addition to their helpful professional business solutions.

Shared Server Hosting Options (6 / 10)

All the Myhosting plans come with unlimited file transfer, disk space, and hosted domains. The “Basic” plan is only $4.84/mo and is Linux platform only. This has only 10 email accounts, and an option for a dedicated IP address buy-up.

The “Premium” plan is $9.34/mo, and the “Professional” plan is $18.71/mo. Both come with support for Linux or Windows platforms, and comes with the Windows options for .NET, Silverlight support, and MS SQL databases. Also with these plans customers get a dedicated IP address, and the Professional plan gets a free dedicated SSL certificate.

However, all plans are seriously lacking in the total number of MySQL databases allowed and email accounts provided. For nearly $20 a month, a professional web client would expect more than 50 email accounts.

VPS Hosting Options (7.5 / 10)

Myhosting also offers Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting options starting at just $15.95 per month. With VPS clients have more freedom to configure their allotted “space” and download software to suit their business website needs, and get a more secure dedicated IP address. Plus, rather than sharing a single server with hundreds of other websites, VPS clients get their own partitioned space and share a server with only a few dozen or less other website owners.

Conclusions (7 / 10)

Myhost offers great plans for business website clients. While their plans are deficient in some aspects such as databases and total allowed email accounts, Their plans are suitable for growing online businesses.
