101domain is an Irish web hosting company with offices in the U.S. and a globally dispersed network of servers. It was founded back in 1999 and specializes in shared hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration for businesses and individuals. It’s very easy to navigate through its website which is also available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
101domain provides a range of commonly known hosting products such as shared hosting, cloud hosting, and dedicated servers. In terms of shared hosting, you can find several useful features including:
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Free SSL certificates
- Plesk control panel
- Website builder
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
Even though 101domain doesn’t offer a software auto-installer, you can easily install all popular apps such as WordPress, Joomla, and Droopal with a single mouse click from the Plesk control panel.
An efficient website builder is also available with all hosting plans to save you the time and effort in designing your website. You can quickly create your site’s layout according to your specific preferences with simple drag-and-drop functionality.
In addition, 101domain takes care of your data through regular automatic backups to make sure that your information is always secure in the case of any connection drops, but it isn’t likely considering the company’s 99.9% network uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
101domain is quite affordable according to industry standards. It offers three price plans for its shared hosting: Personal Hosting, Business Hosting, and Business Pro Hosting. These plans mainly differ in storage space together with few other features.
You can choose to be billed monthly, annually, or triennially, however, the triennial contracts come at the lowest average monthly cost.
101domain accepts several payments including MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or PayPal. New subscribers get a 30-day money-back guarantee.
I must say that 101domain provides excellent customer support. I needed more detailed information about the shared hosting plans, luckily, I was able to chat with one of their live chat representatives who managed to answer all my questions instantly. Besides live chat, you can reach the support team by phone or sending your questions via email or a contact form. I also find the website pretty informative with a knowledge base, tutorials, and a basic FAQ section.
