Webair company OneHost is a modern provider of high-quality shared, VPS, and reseller hosting that combines the flexibility to configure your own hosting product with the reliability of a 99.99% uptime guarantee.
This provider has been around since 2011, it is based out of Garden City, New York, and its website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
OneHost’s all-in-one hosting makes use of the best technologies and includes the following features:
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- Domain registration with free domain privacy for one year
- Multidomain hosting with up to unlimited subdomains and addon domains
- Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates
- Free email hosting or discounted G Suite
- Automatic nightly backups for an extra fee
- Up to 50 GB of SSD storage
- Up to 2000 GB of bandwidth
One of the best bits about OneHost’s hosting is that you can configure your storage and bandwidth by the gigabyte, and you can easily scale up your website once you’re signed up as a customer. You also get pretty much everything else you need, including email, SSL, and domain registration.
If shared hosting isn’t exactly what you want, you can get VPS, reseller, or cloud hosting from this provider’s sister site OneHost Cloud that shares some of the same traits. You can manage your servers using the cPanel, VNC or WHMCS control panels, and the VPS packages let you choose from more than 50 operating systems.
OneHost has two U.S. data centers and one in Europe.
Pricing and Support
If you’re looking for a host with flexible billing that lets you pay only for what you need, then it doesn’t get much better than OneHost. Whereas complete customization of your resources is usually only allowed on VPS or dedicated server plans, OneHost extends this courtesy to all its hosting products.
The primary price determiner is the amount of storage and bandwidth you choose, which is not unlimited but can be scaled up once you’ve become a customer. Although OneHost is not one of the cheapest hosts you’ll find, do keep in mind that its hosting packages come with a lot of added value in the form of free SSL, cPanel, migration, and free DNS management and ID Protection for the first year. Put simply, you get what you pay for with this provider.
Committing to this company is not a big deal because it offers monthly billing plus a 30-day money-back guarantee that would get you out if anything went wrong.
OneHost talks the right talk when it comes to advertising 24/7/365 support that is handled entirely in-house and which assures you a 30-minute response time. The reality turns out to be telephone, ticket, and email support, with no live chat and no substantial knowledge base for self-support.
For virtual private servers, you can choose the level of management you want. And for reseller plans, you can have a personal account manager.
