NetCone is a Bangladesh-based provider of attractively priced SSD shared hosting plans. It has nothing to offer if you want to scale beyond its shared hosting offerings.

Overview

NetCone-overview1

NetCone is fine, but fine is not good enough. While NetCone is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.

NetCone is a relatively recent entrant on the web hosting scene. It was established in Bangladesh in 2015 to provide feature-packed SSD hosting solutions and domain registration services at a fair price. Its English language website can be switched into several alternative languages.

Features and Ease of Use

NetCone offers a wide range of hosting services which it categorizes as Shared Hosting, Business Hosting, Corporate Hosting, Premium Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and Email Hosting.

The shared hosting plans for students, individuals, small businesses, corporations, and e-commerce customers all come with unlimited domains, unlimited databases, unlimited FTP and MySQL.

Some of the main features provided by the hosting plans are:

  • SSD drives
  • cPanel
  • 99.99% uptime SLA
  • Softaculous auto-installer
  • 24/7 support

You get the popular cPanel control panel to manage your hosted website. The Softaculous installer allows you to install WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or another CMS with ease, or you can choose from 300+ other application installation scripts.

Continuing with the good news, you can also customize your hosting to meet your personal, business, or corporate needs. However, you can’t scale up to a VPS or dedicated server with this provider because it only offers shared hosting plans.

Pricing and Support

NetCone’s SSD hosting plans come at bargain basement prices. You can pay for them on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis using bKash, Neteller, Skrill, Payza, or wire transfer. You get one free domain for life with a yearly subscription, and the 30-day risk-free money-back guarantee should make you feel better about making this commitment.

Although NetCone advertises a range of support channels such as live chat, telephone, ticketing system, and email, I was disappointed by the lack of response when I attempted to contact the company.

In terms of self-support, your first stop might be NetCone’s blog which (unfortunately) is bare apart from a kind of tag cloud containing some very dubious, apparently auto-generated categories, the mildest of which seems to be a link to a “College Essay Writing Service”. The least said about this, the better. Your better bet is to stop off at the knowledge base, which is much more professional but not particularly well populated:

Bottom line on NetCone

NetCone’s nicely priced plans include above-average features to suit a wide range of webmasters. I’d feel better about this company if its support team actually supported me during my decision process.
