Features and Ease of Use
BanaHosting’s shared hosting plans offer a wide range of features, including:
- cPanel and Softacalous
- Free website builder
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 24/7 security monitoring
- PHP, MySQL, Perl
- FTP accounts
- DDoS protection
Not every hosting service out there can guarantee you peace of mind. Some of them claim to offer 99.99% uptime, but you can’t always rely on what they say. BanaHosting has invested in a state-of-the-art data center that supports multiple redundant network connections. With your hosting, you also get email accounts and web metric tools in addition to web security tools such as ModSecurity and Hotlink protection.
If there’s one thing that I like about BanaHosting, it’s that you have the freedom to choose the location of your servers. If you want dedicated IPs, there are two options available: U.S. and Europe. The best part is that you get unlimited SSD disk space and free SSL on all domains under your hosting account.
Want to build a simple website? I recommend that you use the RVSiteBuilder. It’s an intuitive web app that lets you design and customize your website. Choose from 1,000 templates in various industries. You can add text and images, create columns and tables and more. Your site could be up and running within minutes.
The BanaHosting cPanel comes with Softacalous, a convenient installer with either 100+ scripts in the premium version or 60 in the lite version. It enables you to install and configure content management systems, forums, blogs, e-stores, wikis, CRMs, and photo galleries without going through the hassle of creating databases manually.
Pricing and Support
There are four different shared hosting plans. The basic one is called Bana-Starter Deluxe. This plan supports one website and includes unlimited bandwidth, unlimited SSD disk space, and free SSL for your domain. In addition, you get 100% free website migration, meaning the support team will take care of domain transfer, file transfer, and database transfers so you can get settled into your new hosting account quickly and easily.
Bana-Professional Deluxe comes with all the features of the basic plan, but with the added advantage of unlimited websites. You also get to choose between server locations in Europe and the U.S.This plan is 100% WordPress compatible, so you can create your WordPress website and customize it easily.
Bana-Corporate Deluxe is the ultimate plan. It offers more CPU power and more memory space than the other two. In addition, this plan can handle more processes. I would recommend that you go for this plan if you have multiple websites for different products.
