Features and Ease of Use
The Starter, Rocket, and Enterprise shared hosting plans all provide these features:
- Free SSL certificate
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Daily backups
- From 30 GB to unlimited disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
You administer your hosting account using the popular cPanel control panel that helps you manage your website(s), files, databases, and email accounts. If you’re not familiar with cPanel, you’ll find a thriving online community plus plenty of tutorials to help you.
You also get a one-click automatic installer that helps you install more than 300 CMS and other applications easily. However, if you intend to use WordPress, you might consider one of the WordPress-specific hosting plans that are optimized for this CMS.
Shared servers use SSD storage for much faster data access and higher reliability than traditional HDD storage. And for even higher performance plus more control, you might consider one of the virtual or dedicated server solutions.
Pricing and Support
Shared hosting plans are affordable and applicable to the customers they target. For example, the starter plan is priced for small websites with low resource requirements. It doesn’t offer a free domain registration or free trial period, but it does offer free website migration from your current host.
You can pay for plans via various methods (PayPal, bank transfer, credit card, Stripe, or BitPay) on monthly, quarterly, semiannual, annual, biennial, or triennial billing cycles. The money-back guarantee is apparently not time-limited, so you should be able to request a refund any time during your subscription.
Maghost provides a minimal knowledge base for self-support, or you can contact the company by telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. I enjoyed a very positive live chat experience:
How much does Maghost cost?Maghost offers plans from $2 to $11. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which Maghost plan should I get?My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. Maghost can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from Maghost here.
How good is Maghost’s customer support?Maghost is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of Maghost being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.
