Features and Ease of Use
While 1Uhost prides itself in the fact that they offer low-cost packages, it doesn’t mean that they compromise on the features and tools available to its users. Some of the things you can expect from them include:
- cPanel control panel
- SSD storage space
- 5% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Backups twice a week
- 24/7 customer support
- IPv6 address at no extra charge
- MySQL/MariaDB databases
- Manual backups available for download
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited domains and subdomains
I found it quite interesting that they provide a free WordPress website with the standard pages; Home, About us, and Contact us. Though simple, it is what most people need. If you want something more advanced, just deploy any of popular the scripts you want via Softaculous which comes with over 300 pre-installed scripts. Whether you want a Joomla site or Zen Cart store, their one-click app installer has got you covered.
All their hosting accounts are powered by cPanel, a user-friendly control panel that gives you full control over your web resources and web space. The control panel is available in multiple languages including English. With a few clicks, you can create directories; MySQL databases, personalized email accounts, order add-on domains and SSL, and even backup your files.
1uhost employs the Apache web server to serve content from their CloudLinux operating systems. It’s compatible with Linux and Windows systems and customizable through modules. With their Apache server, you can run multiple websites and use SMTP and FTP protocols without any problems. They have incorporated the HTTP/2 protocol on their webserver with advanced caching. Don’t forget their storage is in SSD, so you can expect you website to run fast.
Pricing and Support
1Uhost specializes in low cost web hosting. Their packages are relatively cheaper than their competitors, and they come with some nice options. They offer both monthly and yearly contracts making them suitable for both long-term and short-term contracts. You can start out with their basic plans and easily scale up to their unlimited plan with little downtime.
If you ask me, I’d recommend going for the annual plan since it comes with a free domain. That way, you don’t have to bother registering a domain separately and linking it to your account. Additionally, with their annual plans, you can get a dedicated IP address for a small fee. When it comes to payment, they accept PayPal as well as debit cards like MasterCard and VISA Card.
One thing that keeps clients coming back to 1Uhost is their friendly customer support team who are available 24/7 via email. They’re responsive and helpful professional who can resolve a myriad of hosting issues in no time. I wish they were accessible via live chat and telephone. Alternatively, you have the option to refer to their Knowledge base for answers to simple hosting issues.
