Features and Ease of Use
HelloMails offers five shared hosting plans with features befitting small and medium-sized businesses. These are the provided features:
- 99% uptime
- Daily automatic backups
- From 10GB to 100GB storage space size
- Unlimited Bandwidth
- Anywhere from one to unlimited domains per account
Its servers are on NVMe storage, which offers slightly better performance than you would get on SSD storage. NVMe is five times faster than SSDs with a higher IOPS, and way better than that of HDDs. That will enhance your hosting experience and provide faster load times.
To make it even better, the company uses a CloudLinux operating system. CloudLinux separates all customers in a shared server into their own light-weight virtualized space. Coupled with its CageFS technology, it prevents customers from overloading the servers and spreading malware.
HelloMails provides the cPanel management tool. Within it is a one-click installer that makes it easy for you to install CMSes like WordPress and Joomla without needing to understand setting up and connecting databases.
For those looking to design simple websites without a CMS, HelloMails provides the SitePad website builder that has a drag-and-drop interface with many pre-configured themes. You might not need to do anything other than upload your images and content.
It supports PHP programming and offers a PHP selector, so you can use your preferred PHP version.
HelloMails’ features go above hosting and setting up websites to creating a foundation for marketing. It provides SEO and marketing tools to help you optimize your website to show up on search engine result pages and start getting leads.
Pricing and Support
HelloMails does not have a free trial but it does offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. For subscription periods, it offers monthly and annual subscription plans. So, you can subscribe for one month at a time and easily pull out if it doesn’t meet your needs.
Its prices are low and there’s no subscription trickery as the renewal and introductory rates stay the same. While it offers competitive pricing, you’ll still need to purchase an SSL certificate and domain name separately. The good thing is that that cost of those won’t make this extremely high.
Plus, the company offers one of the sweetest deals – a lifetime hosting payment and the cost is low. Keep in mind, though, that you might need to purchase additional storage as time goes by because 10GB is too low for a lifetime.
You can reach customer support at HelloMails through phone, WhatsApp chat, Skype, and email. You can also find self-help on its blog. I used the live chat to be in touch with an agent.
