Features and Ease of Use

The entry-level “Host Intro” Windows shared hosting plan includes 1 GB of disk space, 10 GB of monthly bandwidth, and hosting for one website. This plan doesn’t include any databases or email storage. The next “Host One” shared Windows plan offers 5 GB of SSD storage, 60 GB of monthly bandwidth, two MSSQL databases, three MySQL databases, 500 MB of email storage, and hosting for unlimited databases.

In terms of Windows cloud hosting, the Tier One plan includes 2 GB of SSD disk space, 20 GB of monthly bandwidth, one MSSQL database, one MySQL database, 200 MB of email storage, up to 250 MB of RAM, and hosting for unlimited websites.

There are four shared Linux plans. The least expensive “Intro” plan includes 5 GB of SSD storage, 15 GB of monthly bandwidth, three MySQL databases, unlimited email accounts, and hosting for three websites. The more expensive Linux plans come with additional features including website turbo speed-up, free on-demand backup, SEO, and Cron optimization.

The following features are common across all shared hosting solutions:

  • Free software installation
  • SSD storage
  • 24/7 antivirus scanning
  • Nightly data backups
  • DDoS attack response
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Support for free SSL

ASPHostPortal uses 12 world-class data centers located in Washington D.C., Toronto, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Melbourne, Chennai, and Sao Paulo. These facilities feature redundant, high-speed network connections, and high-tech cooling and fire-suppression systems. They are staffed 24/7/365 by certified administrators and network engineers.

100% website uptime is assured by DNS failover that monitors customers’ websites for failover from multiple geographic nodes. When a website fails to load, ASPHostPortal will automatically change the DNS records to reroute traffic to a backup IP address or server. This is a paid monthly service.

Pricing and Support

ASPHostPortal’s shared hosting is very affordable compared with American and international competitors. Its Windows “Intro” shared hosting plan costs about the same as a cup of coffee per month, with the price halving if a five-year term is chosen. However, for database and email support, you will need at least the “Host One” plan that is still very competitive at the cost of a fast food meal per month.

SSD-based Linux plans are also competitively priced, and at the time of this review, a coupon code allows you to get a free domain with cloud hosting or reseller hosting.

Shared hosting plans can be purchased on quarterly, annual, three-year, and five-year terms, with discounts of between 14% and 43% given for longer terms.

24/7 customer support is handled via email ticketing. I received a response the same day when I contacted the company.

How much does ASPHostPortal cost?
ASPHostPortal offers plans from $1 to $11. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which ASPHostPortal plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. ASPHostPortal can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from ASPHostPortal here.
How good is ASPHostPortal’s customer support?
ASPHostPortal is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of ASPHostPortal being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.

Friendly, helpful, east to use control panel

Asphostportal is a really good .net hosting, they have a variety of hosting options and the pricing is budget friendly.I host my website and clients' websites on Asphostportal, and my clients love it. The sites don't have any downtime. Thye have SSL certificates and domain privacy, plus SSD features that increase my websites loading faster. Their customer service is top notch, will help you with tasks you don't fully understand and if you are just too much of rockhead to figure it out then they'll do it for you or give you the step by step. I use customer service often so yes sometimes I'm a rockhead. Give them a try and you won't be sorry.

Rising star!!

By far Asphostportal is the best .net hosting company I ever found. Though it's a bit costly compared to others if you are doing a real business online then it is highly recommended.Don't go with the cost, go with quality. You will get what you pay. Serious business requires a hosting company with real customer support. Don't think twice, get yourself the best hosting with Asphostportal. Thanks!

Nice platform, can host different languages/frameworks

Easy to deploy, many options can host both Asp.net and PHP. Hosting plan starts with $1.00/month, if you only host 1 website, you can sign up this plan. If you have a database and want to host more than 1 website, you can pick up their Host One plan. Control panel is good and easy to customize, fast support is a good point here

Simply best .net hosting!

I have been with Asphostportal for over 5 years now and continue to receive the absolute best in service, whether that's from the ultra-dependable uptime of the servers of the staff sitting behind the scene, waiting to resolve your every query in the highest professional and courteous manner. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else for my hosting needs.

Very good support, always ready to support!

As a developer, I use Asphostportal to host every website that I build. I have used other hosts, but I have to say that this decent host offers the same level of performance and features for much less money. Support is usually great, my only complaint being that the original average support response time of 10 minutes is now more like 30 minutes. I haven't noticed any downtime or slow browsing speed. Some of my sites are e-commerce, so database speed is really important. I would recommend Asphostportal to anyone who is looking for reliable hosting, the prices are good, support is awesome!
