MochaHost

MochaHost is a pretty good budget host, and while it does have its flaws, so do its competitors. On the whole, you can’t complain about the service and the resources you get for the price you pay, and the company also offers a whopping 180-day money-back guarantee. Before you make any final decisions, you should check out Hostinger's cheap plans.
