101domain targets itself at startups that want an easy way to create an online presence by one-click installing a CMS such as WordPress or by building a website using the site builder's drag-and-drop interface.

Overview

101domain

101domain is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

101domain is an Irish web hosting company with U.S. offices and a globally dispersed network of servers. It was founded back in 1999, and it offers shared hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration services to individuals and businesses.

101domain’s easy-to-navigate website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

This vendor’s three shared hosting packagesPersonal Hosting, Business Hosting, and Business Pro Hosting – are differentiated mainly by the amount of storage space. The shared hosting features they share are:

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Plesk control panel
  • Website builder
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee

You manage your hosting via the Plesk control panel that includes a one-click installer for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and other applications. As an alternative to installing a CMS, you can create your website using the drag-and-drop website builder that requires no special technical knowledge.

101domain takes care of your data thanks to regular automatic backups, and it also provides you with a 99.9% network uptime guarantee. However, customers are encouraged to take their own backups, too.

Pricing and Support

101domain’s hosting plans are affordable but not cheap by industry standards. You can pay by credit card or PayPal on billing cycles from monthly to triennially, with the triennial term affording you the lowest average monthly cost. If signing up for three years scares you, you can take some comfort from the 30-day money-back guarantee that gives new subscribers the opportunity to get out if anything goes wrong within the first few weeks, or if you simply change your mind. 

I am impressed with 101domain’s technical support experience. Since I needed more detailed information about the shared hosting plans, I initiated a live chat, via which one of this vendor’s sales agents answered my questions immediately:

Besides live chat, you can contact this company via telephone or email, or by filling out the online contact form. 101domain’s website also includes a nice knowledge base for self-support.

A Free Domain is included when purchasing any hosting service from 101domain

So far, so good

So far, I've had a pleasant experience with 101 domain. Their prices have been reasonable, and the one time I had to reach out to support to troubleshoot, I was connected with someone via chat right away.Good for medium size businesses like the one I work for!

Bottom line on 101domain

101domain provides everything you would expect from a hosting provider, but nothing extra-special. SSD storage would be nice to see for shared hosting since this is one of the features of the cloud and dedicated server solutions.

101domain might offer a good service at a reasonable price, but does it match up with the top web hosting companies? We find it hard to say “yes.”

Pros

  • 24/7 customer support
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Free SSL certificates
  • 30-day money-back guarantee

Cons

  • Uses Plesk instead of cPanel
  • No SSD storage with shared hosting
