Feature-rich plans, low prices, and an informative website. Apart from poor pre-sales support, HostingMemberCenter has it all.


Overview

hmc mainAmerican hosting provider HostingMemberCenter is relatively new to the market. In little more than six years it has managed to expand its network of servers to more than 120 across the U.S.A. It provides a wide range of hosting products, including shared hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, and broadcasting-related services.

HostingMemberCenter’s informative website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

HostingMemberCenter offers one unlimited and three regular shared hosting packages. Apart from the price, the main difference is that the unlimited plan (as you would expect) provides unlimited disk space. The regular plans provide between 5 GB and 20 GB.

The shared hosting plans include the following features:

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Daily/weekly/monthly backups
  • Free domain (except for unlimited web hosting)
  • Free RVsitebuilder
  • cPanel
  • Softaculous

The cPanel control panel provides a very user-friendly management interface through which you can easily control all aspects of your website hosting: adding/removing email accounts, adjusting website backup intervals, and much more. The built-in Softaculous one-click installer simplifies the installation of CMS and other apps, including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, and more.

HostingMemberCenter also throws in the RVsitebuilder website builder that helps you design your website via a drag-and-drop interface with no technical knowledge required. You can choose from several web design templates and layouts.

Pricing and Support

HostingMemberCenter

Whatever package you choose, you can be billed annually, biennially, or triennially, with a lower monthly cost for longer sign-ups. Compared with the American market, and considering all the features, HostingMemberCenter’s prices are quite affordable overall.

HostingMemberCenter accepts all major credit/debit cards plus PayPal, but (unfortunately) all payments are non-refundable. However, you can get a free web hosting trial if you subscribe to the SHOUTcast or IceCast plans.

HostingMemberCenter supports several communication channels: telephone, ticket, email, and live chat. The live chat link was broken when I wanted to try it, and I never received a reply to my exploratory email. For self-support, HostingMemberCenter’s website includes an FAQ page and a knowledge base that is skewed very much towards music streaming information.

The company seems dead!

Had our Internet radio station there. In February sometime our streaming died - and now, three months later it's still dead, and I have heard NOTHING from them, even though I made multiple contact attempts via support site, e-mail and phone! So they are effectively DEAD.

No reaction on tickets

The company does not react on customer tickets any more. We then tried also to reach by phone or emails. Phone number is not reachable. (616-818-4160). It is a strange thing. Don´t know what is going on there. We will search for an other solution at an other provider to go ahaed.

Bottom line on HostingMemberCenter

Feature-rich plans, low prices, and an informative website. If it weren’t for the poor pre-sales support response (i.e., none), I would say that HostingMemberCenter has it all.

Pros

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Free RVsitebuilder
  • 120+ vendor-owned servers
  • Affordable prices

Cons

  • Unresponsive customer support
  • No money-back guarantee

Find affordable and feature-rich hosting solutions at HostingMemberCenter’s.
