Features and Ease of Use
checkdomain offers four shared plans: Start, Pro, Premium, and Business. On these plans, users will enjoy the following features:
- 99% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily automatic backups
- From 50GB to 500GB disk space
There is no restriction on bandwidth usage, instead, it offers a fair-use rule. However, websites with extremely high traffic are excluded from this rule and what its fair usage truly is can only be determined by it.
checkdomain’s shared hosting is on a Linux operating system. So, if you’re in need of Windows, you’ll have to look elsewhere. It supports different versions of the PHP programming language of which you can select your preferred option from the control panel.
The vendor uses a custom control panel that has an auto-installer that supports up to 82 web applications ranging from the popular CMS like WordPress and Drupal to others like phpBB. The higher the plan you choose, the more applications you will have access to.
Zend-Optimizer is included in its plans to enhance the performance of PHP pages and enables you to display your PHP pages encrypted via Zend-Guard. Also, connection via SSH is enabled on the Pro, Premium, and Business plans. Cron Jobs scheduling is another advanced feature available on all plans.
checkdomain utilizes SSD drives to store data on its servers. Among its numerous benefits is that it improves performance and is therefore durable, keeping your data secure for a long time.
Pricing and Support
checkdomain’s prices are fair, considering the features and tools offered on them. Clients can pay annually for the Start plan, semi-annually for the Pro plan, quarterly for the Premium plan, and monthly for the Business plan.
Its payment methods include PayPal and debit or credit card. There is also a bank transfer payment method, which is only applicable to companies or corporate bodies. It doesn’t offer a money-back guarantee period, but it offers a free domain registration service on all shared plans.
checkdomain offers a live chat, phone number, email address, and frequently asked questions (FAQ). I sent an email to support and got a reply shortly after.
