Although it’s not as apparent as with some hosting brands, FreeYellow is one of the many hosts that come under the Endurance International Group umbrella. As such, it is based in Burlington, Massachusetts, and it is advertised as having been in business since 1996.
This host offers a variety of hosting services, including shared web hosting, email solutions, domain name registration services, and WordPress solutions. For shared web hosting, it offers the same “One Plan” as its sister brands.
Features and Ease of Use
FreeYellow’s “One Plan” hosting plan is provided in Linux and Windows variants with the following features:
- Free domain (with at least an annual commitment)
- Unlimited disk space
- Scalable bandwidth (that satisfies more than 99.5% of customers’ bandwidth demands)
- Free domain
- DNS management
- Unlimited email mailboxes with webmail
- 24/7 customer support
- 30-day money-back guarantee
- Advertising credits
With the Linux variant, you get unlimited MySQL databases, and with the Windows variant, you get one MSSQL database.
Besides its shared web hosting plan(s), FreeYellow offers a WordPress hosting solution that comes in two variants: WP Starter and WP Essential. It also offers two website backup plans: a Basic plan (to back up one website and one database, once a day) and a Pro plan (to back up unlimited websites, unlimited databases, up to five times per day).
FreeYellow’s state-of-the-art hosting infrastructure is housed in data centers located in Boston, U.S.A. This vendor uses SSD storage and has partnered with SiteLock experts to deliver a deluxe security bundle that protects against malware and cyber attacks.
Pricing and Support
FreeYellow’s hosting solutions are expensive and come with a high one-time setup fee if you commit to less than a year. You can pay for plans in U.S. dollars on billing cycles from monthly to triennially, with lower prices for longer commitments, and you get a 30-day money-back guarantee.
For self-support, FreeYellow’s website includes a knowledge base, and for remote support, you can use the screen-sharing feature. The 24/7 customer service desk can be contacted via its toll-free telephone number, email, or live chat. I have found the staff to respond rapidly, and I enjoyed a fruitful conversation with a support agent via the live chat channel:
