Features and Ease of Use
Offshore Linux and Windows hosting packages provide:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Full domain registration, including free domains
- Weekly automatic off-site backups
- Multisite hosting for up to 50 websites
- Up to 500 GB of storage
- Up to 500 GB of bandwidth
All Emyhost’s hosting services are offered in both Linux and Windows variants. Each comes with features appropriate for the particular operating system, such as MySQL and cPanel for Linux, or Plesk and MSSQL for Windows.
Although the Windows plans don’t come with as much storage or bandwidth as the Linux plans, both provide more than enough resources for most websites. But for even more bandwidth, you should choose a VPS with up to 4 TB of bandwidth.
When it comes to all the essential hosting features, Emyhost really delivers. Developers will like the support for all the essential software frameworks as well as SSH access. Everyone will welcome the popular cPanel and Plesk control panels.
A 99.9% network uptime and 99.5% server uptime guarantee mean that you can be confident enough about stable hosting, although they’re nothing spectacular.
Pricing and Support
Emyhost looks like a very affordable host with attractive prices. Although there is no unlimited hosting, the high storage and bandwidth limits will be more than enough for most users. However, the Windows packages are a little more limited than the Linux ones. While many cheaper hosts don’t allow you to host multiple sites, this one does. It also allows you to have unlimited parked domains, subdomains, and email accounts.
What makes Emyhost’s prices particularly appealing is the fact that they’re not just introductory prices, and the prices are frozen from the minute you sign up. You also get a much-better-than-average 100-day money-back guarantee that gives you plenty of time to decide if this really is the host for you.
You can choose to sign up for a monthly, annual, or biennial billing basis, but opting for the monthly hosting option will incur a small setup fee. On the other hand, if you go for annual billing, you get two months free, and with biennial billing, you get four months free.
There is no knowledge base or other self-support resources as far as I can see, but 24/7 support is provided via a ticketing system and a telephone number (during Malaysian office hours). I was pleased to receive a support response within a couple of hours of submitting a ticket:
