Features and Ease of Use
lomasbuscado.net offers a selection of services that includes domain registration, shared hosting, adult hosting, reseller hosting, virtual private servers, and dedicated servers.
Their shared hosting packages include the following features:
- Both Windows and Linux OS available
- 99% uptime guarantee
- Free domain registration in higher-tier packages
- Unlimited subdomains
- Support for PHP 5.4 – 7.1
It’s important to consider lomasbuscado.net’s uptime guarantee as it is a little unusual. On the homepage, they state that they guarantee 99% uptime. However, they also state they have an “attempted 99.9%” uptime. This is a little confusing and, if the 99% uptime is correct, it’s a lot lower than the industry norm. On top of that, they don’t appear to offer automatic daily backups.
However, what I really like is their transparency. On their website, they have a server status page showing the dates and reasons for any downtime. It’s also important to note that their average uptime is well above 99%.
Iomasbuscado.net has a few nice features for beginners. Firstly, they have a website builder that includes multiple ready-made templates. Secondly, they have a one-click installer for popular platforms and scripts, and they also offer a service to help webmasters install programs on their websites at an added cost. Finally, their hosting is compatible with e-commerce platforms such as CubeCart, osCommerce, Avactis, phpCOIN, Zen Cart, and Magento.
Pricing and Support
The three lowest-tier packages are very cheap. However, these plans offer very few features and have low resource caps, making them suitable only for the most basic websites. On the other hand, the higher-priced packages are comparatively expensive compared to both local and international competitors.
They offer a monthly rate and also an annual rate. What’s great about them is that they offer really steep discounts for purchasing a one-year term. There is no money back guarantee; however, they do offer a seven day free trial.
On top of their hosting plans, there are a few hidden costs that must be noted. While domains are included free of charge in all but the lowest-tier packages, there are added costs for setup, support, and SSL certificates. Although these are negligible amounts, it’s quite unusual for setup and support to be an extra cost.
Customer support is quite limited. They offer email, MSN, and SMS support only. Unfortunately, when I contacted them via email, I never received a response. In an ideal world, I’d like to be able to contact their support via live chat or perhaps over the phone to get an instant response.
That said, their technical support center is open 24/7 for existing customers, which likely means technical and urgent enquiries get a much faster response. They also have a fairly detailed help center on the website, which allows you to resolve issues without contacting support.
