Its shared hosting solutions run on pure SSD disk storage and are divided into seven packages: Starter-1GB Pure SSD hosting, Portfolio/Personal Website, Business -3 Gb Pure SSD Hosting, Premium – 5 Gb Pure SSD Hosting, Silver- 2GB SSD Hosting.
The other two are quite advanced with the “Offer 1 GB+1Domain” plan offering one free domain name upon registration, and the Unlimited hosting plan providing most features with no limitations.
This hosting company also offers web design services that are built for WordPress and are integrated with a homepage slideshow, five to 20 informative pages, and a contact form with google map, among other features.
It’s unfortunate that tools like backup services, malware scanners, virus protection, SSL certificates, and DDoS protection are limited to reseller hosting accounts.
It is worth mentioning that the Cheap Name Dot Host website has an E-commerce site design with a cart grid structure. And while this could work as an effective method of converting customers, on the downside, the site does not provide much to display to its visitors. There is no homepage navigation bar with the “About Us” section or “Our services” section, among others, that are displayed on a normal website layout.
Pricing and Support
While Cheap Name Dot Host hosting plans might seem cheap, the starter plans are offered with annual billing cycles and only the advanced ones come with monthly payment options. That said, prices are listed in Bangladeshi taka and at checkout, users can change to U.S. dollars or Indian rupees.
Some of the Cheap Name Dot Host web hosting packages offer a 15-day money-back guarantee, while others come with a 30-day money-back guarantee. As standard, however, all of the solutions include a 99.9% uptime guarantee, although the reseller plans come with 99.99% server availability.
There are several ways to contact this vendor: live chat, contact form, or ticketing support. Nonetheless, the hosting firm does not have a telephone or email support.
My email query to this vendor went unanswered. And unfortunately, although Cheap Name Dot has a knowledge base, it has no articles.
