All BaseZap dedicated server plans include free setup with cPanel license and the servers are built-in with high-security measures such as onsite monitoring of the servers, application of firewall, initial security hardening, and DDoS protection preventing your website against a brute force as well as DDoS attacks.
BaseZap shared web hosting plans are divided into SSD shared plans and SATA shared hosting plans. The plans are then subdivided further into three packages each: Basic, Advanced, and Business.
SSD plans are the most popular shared hosting solutions and at the entry-level is the Basic plan ideal for individual blogs and it comes with 5GB SSD disk space and 10 subdomains. On the other hand, the Business plan is the most advanced SSD shared plan and includes up to 30GB SSD disk storage as well as unlimited emails, unlimited bandwidth, and unlimited domains.
By default, the hosting plans come with backup and storage systems that constantly create backups of its customer’s website data from remote servers. Thus, helps avoid loss of data and files at the time of crisis.
Pricing and Support
BaseZap web hosting services are quite standard in contrast with what other vendors are offering in the same niche. That said, the hosting packages are only equipped with basics. The plans are offered with monthly subscriptions and their prices are listed in U.S. dollars.
For some reason, BaseZap advertises two uptime guarantee policies. While on one side it promises an uptime of 99%, on the other hand, it seems committed to providing a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Some hosting services include a 30 days money-back guarantee while others only offer up to 7 days money-back guarantee.
The customer support desk is available via ticketing system, email, and live chat. Customers can also contact the vendor on their social channels, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. That said, the hosting company does not offer telephone support.
I sent an email query to this vendor’s support team, which they addressed just over 14 hours later.
BaseZap has a knowledge base but it is quite scanty with only three available articles.
