Features and Ease of Use
Name Hero offers these features that will be incredibly handy:
- Free domain migration
- Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificates
- Domain registration
- cPanel hosting manager
Most of their more advanced features are aimed at making their hosting solutions faster and more available. They use a number of popular technologies and software platforms that they call their “Superhero Features”, such as:
- SSD Raid 10 secured storage: This type of storage is ultra fast and highly redundant to serve your data to users quickly and to keep it safe.
- Cloudflare with railgun: Cloudflare optimizes your content to load faster as well as protects your server from DDOS attacks.
- One-click WordPress install: You can get WordPress up and running quickly as well as choose a managed WordPress hosting service.
- LiteSpeed web server: This is one of the most popular types of web server software and is supposed to be much faster than Apache.
You might feel a bit out of your depth using NameHero in the beginning just because it offers some advanced features. However, these software programs are popular because they are relatively easy to use. Between their tutorial videos, help center, and tech support you should be able to have no trouble figuring it out. Being able to work with either cPanel or WordPress is a blessing as it makes managing your solution easy and gives you full control.
Pricing and Support
The pricing plans at NameHero are pretty straightforward. They offer solutions for shared web hosting, cloud reseller web hosting as well as VPS hosting, for those with more advanced needs, as well as E-commerce hosting. You can choose from a yearly or a tri-yearly billing cycle and there are a few upsells like a dedicated IP, external DNS, and ID Protection.
The shared web hosting and E-commerce pricing structure is almost identical and include:
- Unlimited storage
- Unmetered bandwidth
- One, six, or unlimited websites depending on your plan.
- Varying amounts of RAM and processing power
- Superhero Features: Free SSL, LiteSpeed, SSD Raid 10, and Cloudflare
- Unlimited domains and emails.
Reseller hosting plans differ in the amount of allotted bandwidth (between 500-2,000 GB) and the amount of SSD storage (50 – 100 GB). You have access to all Superhero Features with all plans. The Corporate plan also includes a WHMCS starter license.
Their VPS Hosting is for those with enterprise or large business needs. There are four plans and all come with 5 TB bandwidth, 2 Dedicated IPs, and their Superhero Features as well as being fully managed:
- Hero 2 GB: 2 GB RAM, 2 CPU cores
- Hero 4 GB: 4 GB RAM, 2 CPU Cores
- Hero 6 GB: 6 GB RAM, 4 CPU Cores
- Hero 8 GB: 8 GB RAM, 6 CPU Cores
Unfortunately, the only support channel available is through a ticket system. Even via tickets, their support staff is very quick to respond and seem to be working day and night. They also actively provide updates via the support center or social media. Their knowledge base and tutorial videos are some of the better ones so you can find the help you need yourself.
