Features and Ease of Use
I think I’m right in saying that the number of web hosts offering free trials has dwindled, so I’m pleased to announce that Altomarketing leys you try its cPanel hosting for 15 days for free, no strings attached.
This company’s 5,000+ customers benefit from a range of control panels to simplify hosting administration: cPanel, Plesk, WebPanel, and ISPmanager. They (and you) also get access to the following hosting features:
- DNS zone manager
- Online manager
- Backup manager
- FTP accounts
- Free webmail
- MultiPHP manager
- Password and security settings
You have a few options for setting up your website. If you don’t want to use the one-click installer to deploy a CMS-backed website, you can instead ask Altomarketing’s design team to do this for you; or to create your site from scratch using HTML/CSS, PHP/MySQL, or Python.
If shared hosting falls short of your expectations, you could go straight to a managed dedicated server, but there’s no halfway house. Compared with shared hosting, you get more storage, more configuration options, and programming support. And on the highest plan, you unlock unlimited resources.
The 99% uptime guarantee is welcome (because it’s guaranteed), but it’s quite a bit below the industry average. Hardware replacement is performed within 24 hours at no extra charge.
Pricing and Support
Altomarketing’s Argentinian hosting is surprisingly affordable. You also get 15 days to try the services for free; then you can pay using more than ten forms of payment. A 24-month plan is significantly cheaper than a 12-month plan, but you have to pay extra for a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate that would often be free with another host.
You can contact this company 24/7 via Facebook Messenger or Watsapp. It also has an inviting online contact form that provides different options depending on your reason for making contact as a prospective or current customer.
For self-support, there is a decent enough knowledge base, but I don’t like the wizard-like sequence of questions you have to go through to focus in on the help you need.
