Features and Ease of Use
EXELNODE offers three shared hosting packages: Personal, Business, and Business Pro. While these packages vary in storage, monthly bandwidth, the number of hosted websites, CPU, and RAM, they all provide these features:
- SSD storage
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Automatic regular backups
- Free SSL certificate
- CloudLinux OS
- Cloudflare CDN
- cPanel control panel
- Softaculous installer
The cPanel control panel provides a user-friendly interface for managing all aspects of your website hosting, and the Softaculous installer lets you install a plethora of popular applications — such as WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla, PrestaShop, Typo3, or phpBB — with a single click.
Hosted websites sit on reliable and super-fast SSD storage, and performance is further improved by the Cloudflare CDN that caches content close to your website visitors (as well as protecting you against some kinds of cyberattacks).
Pricing and Support
EXELNODE’s prices are affordable compared with international competitors. You can pay by bKash or a credit/debit card on a monthly/annual basis (for Personal or Business plans) or a monthly/annual/triennial basis (for the Business Pro plan). The 30-day money-back guarantee gives you a month to decide if this is the right host for you.
Self-support resources seem to be limited to a knowledge base containing only three entries. If this doesn’t answer all your questions (and it won’t), you will have to call on the customer support team via live chat, telephone, ticket, or email. I received rapid responses to my questions via the live chat channel:
How much does EXELNODE cost?
EXELNODE offers plans from $2 to $5. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which EXELNODE plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. EXELNODE can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from EXELNODE here.
How good is EXELNODE’s customer support?
EXELNODE is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of EXELNODE being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.
