Features and Ease of Use
CX Hosting’s shared plans are suitable for hosting both small and large websites. It offers four shared hosting plans called Lite, Starter, Plus, and Business. With them, you will enjoy the following features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- From 150MB to 5GB disk space
- From 150MB to 5GB bandwidth
- Nightly automatic backups
With the Business plan, you can get up to an unlimited number of FTP accounts, email accounts, subdomains, add-on domains, parked domains, and MySQL databases. With this, you can create an unlimited number of static and dynamic websites, and have separate FTP accounts for whoever needs to access the files.
These plans are Linux based and support the PHP programming language. You can manage your hosting resources through cPanel. Not only is the control panel user-friendly, but it also comes with the beginner-friendly Site Builder tool with which you can create your own website. No technical expertise is required for you to do this and it takes a few minutes.
Add-ons available when ordering include a selectable number of G Suite basic seats and different paid website builder tools. It also offers basic, premium, and corporate maintenance services which are purchased per hour.
CX Hosting only offers hosting plans on a shared platform. There are no virtual private server or dedicated server plans. The disadvantage with this is that when users grow beyond a shared website, there’ll be no servers to scale to.
Pricing and Support
CX Hosting’s Lite plan is completely free of charge, but it only lasts for one month. The other three plans are paid plans at affordable prices. These plans are listed in Jamaican dollars on the website and in both US and Jamaican dollars on the store page.
Billing cycles are monthly and annual. While one month is great for lower risk, if you’re willing to pay for one year, you will only pay half the price. If you’re so concerned about risk, though, CX Hosting offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. For situations where a client is not satisfied with the service after making payments, they can request a refund of their money within 30 days.
You can make payments using Bank transfer, Mail-In payments, and PayPal.
CX Hosting offers support through a knowledge base with tutorials, a ticketing system, and an email address. I sent an email and got a response not long after.
