2GB Hosting is a reputable web hosting provider that also provides low-cost VPS, SSD hosting, and cloud hosting to customers in 120 countries. It leverages cutting edge hosting technologies, trusted resellers/partners, and a friendly 24/7 support team to deliver top-notch hosting services.
Features and Ease of Use
With a suite of reliable SSD-based Java, Windows, and Linux shared web hosting packages, 2GB Hosting can meet any simple hosting need. Some of the supported features include:
- DNS lookup
- ASP, CGI, Perl, Python
- High-quality web templates
- FTP accounts
- Advanced tools
- 24×7 Support
Unlike some shared hosting services, 2GB Hosting provides Windows and Linux shared hosting customers with unlimited web space, bandwidth, and email accounts. You can create and host multiple websites or apps, and host numerous email accounts without worrying about depleting your disk space.
The user-friendly cPanel control panel (for Linux) and Plesk control panel (for Windows) provide all the tools you’ll need to manage your website hosting. You get a free website builder, 70 free web apps, phpMyAdmin, DNS manager, MySQL/MSSQL databases, and scripting languages such as Perl and PHP.
Once you’ve built it, you can optimize your website for SEO and secure it with premium SSL certificates. And there’s no excuse for failing to back up your important files and emails since this host provides a free backup and restore service. It’s fully automated for daily or weekly backups.
You can use 2GB Hosting to create and operate an e-store (using Magento or OpenCart) that integrates all the necessary features, including a shopping cart, checkout, order fulfillment, and shipping.
If shared hosting doesn’t suit you, you can install your favorite operating system on one of this provider’s cloud VPS, managed or unmanaged dedicated servers. These are located in convenient locations for you; in the U.S.A., Europe, or India.
2GB Hosting uses high-performance servers with the latest technologies from trusted brands such as Dell and Supermicro. Therefore, you’re guaranteed the best performance regardless of your resource requirements. The 99.99% uptime guarantee reassures you that your website should remain accessible around the clock.
Pricing and Support
With its affordable plans and straightforward pricing, 2GB Hosting ensures that you will pay the same monthly or annual price for the length of your hosting. You get a limited 7-day money-back guarantee period during which you can request a refund, but this is notably shorter than with many other hosts.
If you need help, you can contact this company’s English-speaking support team via live chat or toll-free telephone number. Although the support ticket system is supposedly the most efficient way to connect directly with support staff, I discovered that the 24/7 live chat operators respond in only five minutes.
