Features and Ease of Use
Although this company concentrates on dedicated servers and colocation, it also offers some shared hosting plans that provide these features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Weekly/monthly automatic backups
- Five or ten addon domains
- 1,000 MB or 2,000 MB disk space
- Up to 60 GB monthly traffic
The included auto-installer supports more than 360 applications, including WordPress, Joomla, Magento, PrestaShop, and Drupal.
If shared hosting isn’t sufficient for your needs, you can instead choose a virtual server with better bandwidth, RAM, and storage. Or, go the whole way with a dedicated server and benefit from a DDoS protection system that absorbs attacks to ensure your server stays up. Although dedicated server customers don’t get backups for free, you can add this functionality at the checkout.
The operating system installation is available for free, and you have the freedom to select from a range of options, including CentOS, CloudLinux, Ubuntu, Fedora, VMware, XenServer, and various versions of Windows. While the installation itself is free, please note that applicable license fees will apply. Furthermore, you can choose your preferred control panel from cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, and WHMCS, all of which will be installed for you without any additional cost.
Pricing and Support
Dream Line IT Solution’s annual shared hosting prices are affordable. On the other hand, the monthly VPS prices are reasonable for the features on offer. The dedicated server costs are in line with competitors, and you can pay monthly or yearly. You can pay via a plethora of payment methods that include PayPal, Moneybookers (now Skrill), bank payments, bKash, Rocket, Nexus Card, checks, or credit/debit cards.
For self-support, there’s a reasonably well-stocked knowledge base. If this doesn’t answer your questions, you can contact the customer support team by Skype, email, ticket, telephone (for emergencies only), or live chat (ditto). The average response time is ten minutes, and indeed, my exploratory email received a reply almost immediately.
