Features and Ease of Use
Affordable Shared Hosting provides Economy Linux Hosting packages to mainly small businesses, but it also offers other packages such as a web design package that includes a hosting element.
Some of the features you can expect to find in the economy shared hosting package are:
- 24/7 support
- Free account migration
- 99% uptime guarantee
- Routine site maintenance
- Unlimited bandwidth
- MySQL support
- PHP support
Plans are offered to host your website long-term (at least one year) or short-term (one month at a time), or to design and host your website followed by routine maintenance. This is pretty basic hosting, with only PHP support, and no sign of any control panels, or one-click installers. While the traffic is unlimited, the storage is only 500 MB.
Pricing and Support
Regardless of which type of hosting or other service you choose to see in more detail, you land on the same page that presents you with four options: Basic Hosting (one-year commitment), Short Term Hosting (one-month commitment), Design and Hosting (to professionally create your website and then host it), and Maintenance Plan (to follow the design-and-hosting package).
All the plans are expensive for what you get. Or rather, what you don’t get. And, judging from the vendor’s own website, I wouldn’t be too tempted to sign up for its website design service.
Signing up for hosting appears to be a straightforward process: you simply create an account, enter any offer code on the payment page, and proceed to make the payment using PayPal or a credit/debit card.
24/7 support is provided by email, phone or contact form. The vendor’s website also includes Information and FAQ tabs for self-support, but the presented information is minimal indeed:
