The AET Hosting Solutions website looks half-baked (with empty pages) until you dig down into the ordering process to discover additional information about a surprising range of hosting options.

Overview

aet hosting

Founded in 2014, Maryland-based AET Solutions offers a range of IT services including shared, cloud, VPS, and managed hosting as well as web development, application development, and IT hardware services.

This vendor has two websites:

  • A corporate site that provides a brief overview of the company’s hosting solutions.
  • A separate AET Hosting Solutions website – reviewed here – that apparently says nothing about its hosting solutions until you click the “Order Hosting” icon to find the various hosting options described in some detail within the shopping cart pages.

AET’s websites are in English.

Features and Ease of Use

AET Solutions offers a variety of non-managed and managed-hosting plans plus other IT services. Its four shared Linux hosting plansStandard, Webmaster, Professional, and E-Commerce – use SSD storage for faster website loading. These hosting plans include the following features as standard:

  • Free domain
  • 24/7 technical support
  • 9% uptime
  • SSD storage
  • PHP
  • CMS
  • cPanel control panel

As a hosting customer, you have access to powerful tools such as WordPress, Drupal, phpBB, and the OsCommerce e-commerce shopping cart. You can also secure your site with an SSL certificate from RapidSSL, GeoTrust, or Symantec, and the order page allows you to choose between the different types of certificate: Domain Validation (DV), Organizational Validation (OV), or Extended Validation (EV).

AET Solutions partners with Weebly to provide four Website Builder hosting packages: Starter, Pro, Business, and Performance. The Starter plan lacks some of the features of the other plans, such as no website search function, no support for HD video or audio, and a limit of just 10 products checked out via Weebly’s website rather than your own domain. The remaining four Webbly plans have no such limitations.

Pricing and Support

AET Solutions’ web hosting plans start affordably, with the entry-level shared Linux plan costing the same as a kid’s fast food meal per month. That’s less than the average for the top American hosting providers but similar to other hosts we’ve reviewed. The other plans increase in price, and they provide options for adding SpamExperts email security, SSL, Weebly website builder, SiteLock security, and CodeGuard website backups. You can buy hosting on monthly or yearly billing cycles, with the yearly subscriptions discounted by about 15%.

The Weebly website builder plans are priced similar to all-in-one companies such as Wix, Squarespace, and Shopify. These hosting plans can be purchased on billing cycles from monthly to triennially, with discounts of 5% for biannual billing and 15% for an annual commitment.

AET Solutions offers ticket-based technical support. My test ticket remained unanswered for a week (and counting) which is somewhat worrying. On the bright side, you should be able to support yourself quite successfully thanks to the comprehensive knowledge base:

Bottom line on AET Hosting Solutions

Summary

It would be easy to overlook AET Solutions as not offering hosting solutions at all since its hosting-specific website contains blank description pages. But by simply starting the ordering process, you can discover a deeper set of description pages for a surprisingly wide range of hosting plans. I still have some nagging doubts, though, due to not receiving a response to my request for additional information. So, check them out, but proceed with caution until contact has been established.

Pros

  • cPanel control panel
  • Software auto-installer
  • Fast SSD storage
  • Website builder options available

Cons

  • Apparently empty hosting solutions website
  • No response from customer services

If you can contact the company, there’s some interesting hosting to be had at AET Solutions.
