    GlobexCamHost is a website hosting company based in Cameroon. It sells shared hosting and reseller hosting from its U.S. based servers.

    Overview

    GlobexCamHost features

    GlobexCamHost is based in Cameroon. It’s not clear when it was founded or how many customers it has, however, it is targeting countries in Africa, which suggests a large African customer base. Its website is available in English and French. 

    Features and Ease of Use 

    GlobexCamHost offers a comprehensive range of packages including hosting, domain management, and reseller services. Its standard shared hosting packages come with the following features: 

    • 99.9% server uptime guarantee 
    • Free domain registration for the life of the hosting plan 
    • Unlimited bandwidth, subdomains, mail accounts, and MySQL databases 
    • From 100GB to unlimited disk space 

    GlobexCamHost’s servers are located in U.S. data centers with 24/7 monitoring, redundant high bandwidth connectivity, and 99.9% uptime. This is great for African customers looking to host their website in the U.S. There’s support for PHP (although it’s not clear what version) and Perl, as well as website traffic statistics, and some e-commerce features such as zen cart, cube cart, and affiliate tracking software. 

    Its plans, at face value, appear to be pretty substantial, offering unlimited bandwidth, subdomains, mail accounts and MySQL databases, free domain registration, and, for the “Ultimate” package, unlimited disk space. 

    However, there is some bad news. A deeper dive into the terms and conditions leaves cause for concern. Firstly, the 99.9% uptime guarantee is not backed up in the terms and conditions at all and secondly, while it advertises unlimited bandwidth, its terms and conditions state “you are allocated a specified monthly bandwidth allowance per hosting package”, and finally, resource usage is capped at 5% of system resources including CPU and memory. GlobexCamHost also does not allow shell, SSH, or root access to the servers. 

    Pricing and Support

    Their prices are okay – they’re not the cheapest on the market, but for someone located in Africa needing U.S. based servers, it’s a good deal. Also, there’s free domain registration for life with all plans, as well as unlimited emails accounts and MySQL databases. SSL certificates are a small added cost. 

     You can purchase hosting in one, two, and three year terms. However, oddly, the price increases if you purchase a longer term! There are also very strict cancellation policies – no money-back guarantee, no refunds, and no free trial. 

    The customer service offering is quite good. There are multiple international telephone numbers (U.K., South Africa, U.S., and Cameroon) and several email addresses. There is also live chat, and I’ve been impressed by their speed to answer and help with my questions. There’s a small help center with some how-to guides for customers that want to do it themselves, as well. 

    A Free Domain is included when purchasing any hosting service from GlobexCamHost
