Features and Ease of Use
MecaHost has cloud shared hosting plans that run on both Linux and Windows operating systems. These plans have the following features:
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- Anywhere from 250MB to 2500MB disk space
- From 2GB to an unlimited bandwidth
The company supports ASP, ASP.NET and PHP programming languages. Also, you can use Perl, CGI, SSI, and several other programming scripts.
Customers get access to a number of MySQL databases depending on the plan they choose. It goes from zero to ten. The management tool is phpMyAdmin.
MecaHost shared hosting runs on Plesk control panel which makes a lot of sense given that it supports both Linux and Windows operating systems. It is multilingual and you can perform several administrative operations from here. The best part is that it’s easy to understand and use.
Automatic installation of web scripts is one advantage of using MecaHost. From the control panel, you can access hundreds of applications like WordPress, Magenta, Joomla, and Drupal, and install them in one click.
Another advantage of using this company is its provision of a website builder. With this, you will have access to design tools with several templates for creating websites, blogs, forums, and e-commerce platforms.
If any of it’s shared hosting plan doesn’t suit your need, MecaHost will provide a customizable solution for you. Also, if you want to transfer your hosting plan from another hosting provider to MecaHost’s servers, it can be done for you.
Pricing and Support
MecaHost has eight shared hosting plans – four for Linux and four for Windows – all with a minimum subscription period of 12 months. This is not good news if you can only afford to subscribe for less than that duration.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide a free domain, a free trial, a free SSL, or discount rates of any kind. Even worse if the fact that there’s no money-back guarantee. If you’re still willing to pay, the billing methods are credit cards, bank transfer, domiciled receipt, and PayPal.
Its customer support is available via phone, email, video tutorials, and remote support. I contacted customer support via email but didn’t get a response despite waiting for about a week.
