One.com is a no-frills brand. The features, support, and resources are just enough to cover the essentials—no more, no less. But how do the prices compare?
At first, it seems like an amazing deal. Hosting for less than a dollar a month, but take it with a bit of skepticism. The best prices are only available for your first term, and upon renewal, your price is three times more expensive in some cases.
In the end, you end up paying a similar price to most other hosts, but you’ve given up a feature or two to take advantage of the great introductory prices. It might be a compromise you’re willing to make, but I’m not entirely convinced.
To make the situation worse, you can’t sign up for a month-to-month plan. Therefore, what appeared to be cheap monthly payments is now an annual lump sum. Ouch.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. One.com offers a 15-day money-back guarantee, so you can get started relatively risk-free. If you do decide to try One.com, you can pay by credit card or PayPal.
How much does One.com cost?
One.com offers plans from $2 to $3. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which One.com plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. One.com 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 One.com here.
How good is One.com’s customer support?
One.com is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of One.com 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.
Cancellation & Refunds
Canceling was easy and could be done directly from my dashboard. There’s a useful how-to guide provided by One.com, and the entire process was completed in less than five minutes.
However, as I was within the 15-day money-back guarantee and the cancellation process didn’t confirm whether I would be refunded automatically, I did need to contact customer service to confirm. I’m glad I did, because it turned out that the agent needed to manually refund my payment. Nevertheless, the money was returned to my card in full on the same business day.
