The entry-level Starter plan comes with 20 GB disk space, 20 GB data transfer, 50 email accounts, and the ability to host a single website. The highest Prime plan offers unlimited resource quotas.
The powerful but user-friendly cPanel control panel makes it easy for you to manage your websites, access your website statistics, create email accounts, and perform other administrative tasks. It also allows you to install more than 50 additional applications including osTicket, LimeSurvey, phpBB, and WordPress with just one click.
Furthermore, the hosting packages are e-commerce-ready since they come with support for osCommerce, CubeCart, private SSL, Zen Cart, and an add-on dedicated IP.
All hosting runs on high-performance server infrastructure that features Dual E35530 2.4GHz Xeon Quad Core hyperthreaded processors and 24 GB RAM with RAID 1 (mirrored) configurations. The state-of-the-art datacenters feature redundant power supplies, HVAC and fire detection systems, and constant professional monitoring.
Pricing and Support
HOSTFEO’s shared hosting plans are a bit expensive compared to their primary competitors.
It would be great if the entry-level plan allowed hosting for multiple websites, but at least it provides ample web space, generous bandwidth, and a large number of email accounts. In other words, it’s perfect for various online projects, whether it’s a personal blog or an online store.
You can get a free .com domain with your hosting plan when you use a coupon code, and the combo pack gives you a great blend of domains and hosting with or without an SSL certificate at a reduced price. But beware that this will renew at the standard prices, and it has certain restrictions: not eligible for the 11-day money-back guarantee, and no ability to switch plans.
The available billing cycles depend on the plan you pick. The first two entry-level plans can be bought on one and two-year cycles whereas the other plans allow quarterly, semi-annual, annual, and biennial billing. You can pay using PayPal, credit/debit card, net banking, or by contacting the billing department to be invoiced.
