Feature and Ease of Use
G2K Hosting offers three shared web hosting packages that come with a 99.9% uptime guarantee. With these plans, you get the following value-added features:
- Unlimited email accounts
- Anti-spam and virus filter
- Minimum 500 GB bandwidth
- Minimum 40 GB disk space
- Support for numerous programming languages
The only really beginner-friendly shared hosting plan they offer is the premium shared hosting plan. It comes with a free website builder that you can use to create a website in just five steps. Beginners not on the premium plan have to pay extra to use the website builder.
I don’t like the fact that there is no one-click installer on any plan, but you can still go for the lower plans and install a CMS from your cPanel. I also don’t like the lack of automatic backups on any of their plans, which means you have to manually back up your files from the back end.
G2K Hosting provides dedicated server options for customers who want to benefit from unmetered bandwidth, a minimum of 500GB SATA disk, and 4GB RAM machine. These dedicated servers come pre-configured with the latest Intel technology, but you can also use your own custom configurations.
Those using the web hosting servers benefit from a free anti-spam and anti-virus filter that guarantees a 98% reduction in spam. And although G2K Hosting doesn’t provide free SSL, you can easily purchase a Comodo SSL certificate via their website.
Pricing and Support
G2K Hosting offers three shared hosting plans:
- the low-tier plan comes with 40 GB storage and 500 GB monthly bandwidth
- the mid-tier plan offers 70 GB storage with 500 GB bandwidth
- the top-tier plan provides 150 GB and 2 TB bandwidth
The premium shared plan also comes with a free .com domain.
They don’t allow monthly payments on their shared hosting plans, but that’s not so bad when you consider that those plans are cheaper than most other hosting companies for about the same storage and bandwidth limit. You can save even more with the two- and five-year packages, which may well be worth committing to.
Customer support options include email, phone, ticket and live chat. However, only the top-tier shared hosting plan provides phone support, and on all the other plans you can only get help by opening a ticket.
