Features and Ease of Use
As stated earlier, BITCHEAP HOSTING offers shared hosting plans based on the location of its data centers. There are four plans from the United States data center and four plans from the offshore data center with these features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Daily automatic backups
- From 20GB to 200GB disk space
- Unmetered bandwidth
- Up to 20 add-on domains
It offers the easy to use cPanel control panel from which different activities like email account management and MySQL database management can be carried out.
Also, BITCHEAP HOSTING offers a website builder, with which you can easily create any kind of website for your business. It has over 40 customizable and mobile-friendly drag-and-drop templates that you can choose from.
You can also choose from over 100 free applications including popular CMS and E-commerce scripts and install them in one click. It works automatically from cPanel and no technical skills are required to use this feature.
BITCHEAP HOSTING uses CloudFlare integration in order to speed up loading time. To further improve speed, BITCHEAP HOSTING uses SSD accelerated servers, which offer both faster loading times and better responsiveness.
One thing to note is that this hosting provider offers no domain registration; clients are required to use an existing domain when choosing a plan. As such, you will need to register a domain elsewhere before using its service.
It claims to offer VPS hosting, but a click on the link gives a 404 error page. It does offer a DMCA ignored reseller plan, which is available on the store page.
Pricing and Support
BITCHEAP HOSTING offers good prices on all its shared plans. Its DMCA shared plans are a bit higher in price, but not so much that it makes them overly expensive.
It offers monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual billing cycles on all plans, while its billing methods are Perfect Money and BitPay.
Client support is only available via ticket and email address. Its knowledge base is bare and the live chat link on its header leads nowhere. There is also no phone number through which you can make quick contact. I sent an email, but never got a response.
