However, first impressions can be misleading. This provider’s main English-language web page does look impressive, and its relatively up-to-date Facebook page confirms that it is based in New Delhi, India.
Features and Ease of Use
BizzHost offers web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers, along with Comodo and GeoTrust SSL certificates, domain solutions (registration and transfer), and remote FTP storage.
There are five Linux web hosting plans (Starter, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum) and five Windows web hosting plans (ditto), all of which come with:
- 1 GB to unlimited disk space (Linux)
- 1 GB to 100 GB disk space (Windows)
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- MSSQL databases (Windows)
- cPanel (Linux) or Plesk (Windows) control panels
- Unlimited email accounts
- Unlimited subdomains
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Support for multiple versions of PHP
- IMAP, POP3, and webmail access
The Linux plans come with SpamAssassin (to block spam email) and Clam-AV (to detect viruses, trojans, malware and other malicious threats). They also include the Softaculous Premium one-click app installer, which you can use to install a range of apps including Joomla, Magento, phpBB, osCommerce, Moodle, and more. The SitePad website builder allows you to create your website without any programming knowledge.
BizzHost’s Linux plans are also optimized for WordPress, and performance is improved further thanks to the use of SSD storage. Software RAID ensures your data is spread across multiple disks, so you’re in no danger of losing data, and all plans include an uptime guarantee.
BizzHost also offers specialized hosting for Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP (LAMP) applications plus Linux and Windows reseller plans, VPS, and dedicated servers.
Pricing and Support
BizzHost’s shared hosting plans are cheap and can be bought on annual, biennial, and triennial billing cycles. You might feel better about signing up for at least a year when you know that this provider offers a 30-day money-back guarantee that should give you a chance to get out if anything goes wrong within the first month.
You can contact this company by telephone, ticket (via the client support portal), or contact form (for pre-sales queries). I tried the latter and received a response within 24 hours.
It’s a good thing that the support team responds, because the self-support knowledge base is almost empty.
