Features and Ease of Use
The features of the three packages offered under Castris’ shared hosting. Its top two plans provide unlimited MySQL databases and an unlimited number of email accounts. These are perfect for businesses or companies that require more resources. Here are some of the other features that this company offers customers:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificates
- Automatic backups
- 3GB, 5GB, or 10GB disk space
- From 20GB to an unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited domains per account
Customers can manage their hosting resources from the cPanel management tool which is pretty easy to use. Through it, you can create or upload website files, databases, and many other settings.
Castris provides both Softaculous and Installatron one-click installers which can be accessed from the cPanel. These help you automatically install multiple applications and web scripts quickly thereby saving you loads of time. Also, you don’t have to learn how to create and connect databases; the installers handle that. Apart from automatic installation, you can also use it to restore, update and manage backups of the applications you install through it.
The company allows SSH access to the top two plans. Through that, you can gain access to your hosting account remotely. It also allows for the encryption of data on unsecured connections.
Castris offers free SSL certificates which are available on all its packages. Since SSL certificates are trusted by most major browsers, visitors coming into your site will be able to share their information or make an online purchase safely. Plus, SSL has SEO benefits.
It offers SSD drives that use NVMe which are way faster than SSDs without NVMe. The NVMe protocol allows for the execution of faster read and write speeds, and high input/output rate.
Pricing and Support
Castris offers three packages on its shared hosting which you can subscribe for monthly, quarterly, annually or biannually. The prices for each package are affordable and you will get a discount when you subscribe for a higher billing cycle.
Free migration from your current hosting provider to Castris is available on this plan regardless of the control panel that you currently use. Its money-back guarantee is a lifetime refund guarantee on left-over hosting fees.
Billing methods include wire transfer, debit/credit/IuPay cards, and PayPal. After purchase, your hosting service will be available in 24hours or less.
Castris’ support is available on live chat, knowledge base tutorials, telephone, and email. Its guaranteed response time is in less than four hours. I sent an email to customer support but I’m not happy with the response that I got. The agent sent a link with no explanation and it took a while for me to grasp what they meant.
