Features and Ease of Use
AfeesHost offers four shared hosting plans for individuals and businesses. Customers on any of the plans get to enjoy the following features:
- 99.99% uptime SLA
- Free SSL certificates
- Anywhere from 500MB to unlimited disk space
- Up to unlimited bandwidth
- one, two, ten, or unlimited domains
- Free domain registration
AfeesHost provides the cPanel control panel from which you can manage your hosting account. Also, you do not require any technical skills to use cPanel as it is very simple to operate.
One thing that I like about its shared hosting is its website builder. With this feature, you can create a professional-looking website in a few minutes without needing to know how to code or have experience in web design.
Its beginner-friendliness extends to Softaculous automatic installer. This will help you install web scripts of your choice with just one click. Some of the scripts you can install from Softaculous include WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and Magneto.
It’s servers run on Linux and Apache. For databases, customers get to create and manage MySQL. For custom coding, you can use PHP as that’s its supported programming language.
For those who need more space, bandwidth, RAM, or better security, you can check out its VPS and dedicated servers. You will get full root access, multiple domains per account, added security, and greater performance.
Its VPS is based on Virtuozzo virtualization. For the operating system, AfeesHost provides CentOS Linux distribution. While with the dedicated servers, you will get a RAID 1 provisioned hard disk drive and a 100% uptime guarantee on its server network.
Pricing and Support
AfeesHost has four packages on its shared hosting plan all of which come with a one year, two years and three years subscription durations. The prices for each package is well worth the features that come with them.
It also provides free SSL certificates to secure your website and visitors coming wouldn’t get the “insecure” notification and continue on your website. A free domain name is available but it only applies to annual billing cycles and for its three higher plans only. It applies to only certain domain extensions.
At any time you can upgrade or switch between hosting plans by simply paying the difference for the new plan you want.
There is no money-back guarantee, but the company offers a downtime warranty which should provide a bit of assurance for uptime. You can get up to 50% monthly credit depending on the level of downtime.
AfeesHost’s customer support is available via phone, email, live chat, knowledgebase with Tutorials and ticket support. I sent an email but I didn’t get any reply.
