Although it’s not spelled out for us, Dollar2Host’s name and its American telephone number suggest that it’s based in the U.S.A. Its website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Dollar2Host offers Linux and Windows hosting solutions at three levels: Basic, Advanced, and Ultimate. These shared hosting plans provide unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, a free domain name, free migration, and the following features:
- Free SSL certificates
- Unlimited subdomains
- Unlimited parked domains
- PHP 5 support
- cPanel/Plesk control panel
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Unlimited MySQL databases
The Linux web hosting plans are equipped with the industry standard cPanel control panel that comes with advanced features and a mobile-friendly user interface that makes it easy to manage your website. Windows hosting customers get the Plesk control panel instead.
Building your website in the first place is facilitated by the Softaculous one-click app installer (with 350 free hosting scripts) and the RVsitebuilder pro website builder.
Dollar2Host offers full daily/weekly/monthly backup services, with backups retained for 30 days on the vendor’s servers before they are overwritten.
For super-fast page loading times, Dollar2Host uses state-of-the-art hardware including RAID-protected SSD storage. Its servers are equipped with the latest generation Intel Xeon processors, and you get a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
Dollar2Host’s web hosting plans are pretty pocket-friendly. They come with very few feature restrictions and a lot of freebies including a free domain name for life, a free SSL certificate, and free website migration.
Although monthly prices are advertised, the minimum sign-up period is six months. And although a 30-day money-back guarantee is advertised, I understand that some customers have not received the promised refunds.
Dollar2Host provides a comprehensive knowledge base for self-support. Otherwise, you can contact the excellent 24/7/365 customer service desk via telephone, ticket, live chat, or Skype. When I tried the live chat, I was connected immediately to a support agent who answered all my questions:
