Features and Ease of Use
HOSTSHIELD offers three shared hosting plans, three reseller hosting plans, six VPS plans, ten dedicated servers, and ten game servers. The shared hosting plans provide you with:

The included Softaculous auto-installer lets you install many CMS and other popular applications with a single click. And when your website is live, it will be protected by a firewall.
This host makes a big thing about never overselling resources, so you get what you’ve paid for, and the industry average 99.9% uptime means your website should be available almost all the time.
HOSTSHIELD also offers a high-speed VPN plan with unlimited bandwidth in over thirty-two countries, which you can use to access geo-restricted content from almost anywhere in the world.
Pricing and Support
The shared hosting plans are cheap. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars or euros, on monthly or annual billing cycles, via various methods: PayPal, Mastercard/Visa, BitCoin, Western Union, Perfect Money, Skrill (formerly Moneybookers), or WebMoney. The 72-hour money-back guarantee gives you only three days to change your mind about the commitment you made.
You can contact this company via telephone, ticket, email, online contact form, or live chat. I got quick answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
It’s great that the pre-sales support is so responsive because the self-support knowledgebase only has two entries.
