Features and Ease of Use
PacificHost offers hosting services with a rich set of features. The three shared web hosting plans start out with five domains, unlimited RAID 10 disk space, instant activation, PHP support, and 25 MySQL databases. Or, you can upgrade to a higher plan with unlimited resources.
Some of the standard features of PacificHost’s plans are:
- Daily Backups
- Unlimited bandwidth and disk space
- Free SSL certificates
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free website migration
- 45-day money-back guarantee
This provider’s hosting plans feature a multi-language cPanel control panel along with the Softaculous one-click installer for more than 200 scripts.
PacificHost also features a free CloudFlare CDN that enhances performance by caching content close to your website visitors. And for e-commerce, it offers Attracta SEO tools, OsCommerce, and CubeCart.
Once you’ve grown your business to the point where regular hosting no longer works for you, PacificHost can offer its Business Hosting packages that cater to higher website traffic and greater RAM/CPU resource requirements.
Pricing and Support
You will not easily get better prices for the packages and features offered by PacificHost. It provides very flexible payment methods (credit cards + PayPal) and billing terms (from one month to three years).
You also get a generous 45-day money-back guarantee, which is more than you get with many hosts, and it gives you more than a month to get out if anything goes wrong (which, hopefully, it won’t).
PacificHost has a dedicated support hub filled with much of the information you will need to support yourself, but if you need to contact the company, you can do so through live chat, phone, ticket or email. I tested the 24/7 live chat to my satisfaction. The operator picked up immediately and provided me with all the information I needed.
