Features and Ease of Use
Ovation Hall’s shared plans are suitable for low traffic websites, new blogs, and popular websites. These plans are Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond. Their features include:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Unlimited disk space
- From 60GB to unlimited bandwidth
- From two to unlimited add-on domains
These plans support different versions of both PHP and Perl programming scripts. It also supports Git, CVS, Subversion, and Mercurial. To effectively manage your account, Ovation Hall offers the cPanel control panel. With it, you can manage your domains, emails, and databases, set up permissions, and monitor your account statistics.
It also offers a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate on each plan. This SSL is generally free, but with this provider, installing it is easy and you can do that from your control panel.
Its servers use SSDs for fantastic speed, reliability, and performance. Furthermore, each cPanel account is isolated in a light-weight virtualized space to prevent compromised cPanel accounts from affecting others.
Ovation Hall claims that it helps customers migrate their account from another host to its servers. However, I noticed that this help came in the form of directions on how to do it yourself; you’ll still need to download your website files and upload them as a zip file to the new cPanel account. For database websites like WordPress, you’ll be required to export the database too.
Pricing and Support
Ovation Hall offers cheap prices on all its plans. Coupled with this, it offers other perks like a 30-day money-back guarantee. It doesn’t offer free domain registration on the Bronze plan, but the Silver and Gold plans come with free domain registration for the first year of subscribing. The Diamond plan has a free lifetime domain registration.
Users can only subscribe to annual, biennial, or triennial periods. This might not be good news for individuals who don’t have enough funds for long term commitments. Its billing methods are mobile money (using MTN, Vodafone, and AirtelTigo), cards, and manual payment.
For support, it offers a WhatsApp contact, phone number, email address, and ticketing system with which you can reach its staff. There are also tutorials on its website for self-support. I sent an email and got a reply not long after.
