PrewebHost offers a range of premium services and industry-leading technologies for businesses of all kinds. Customers will enjoy the high reliability and fast load times of their latest-generation servers and technological infrastructure. The company was founded in 2010 and is based in the United States.
Features and Ease of Use
PrewebHost’s most popular packages are their fast and reliable shared, VPS, and reseller hosting packages with a 99.9% uptime SLA. They have a policy for not overselling their shared servers, which has contributed to their reputation for high reliability and fast server speeds.
Their Linux-based shared hosting plans include the latest version of cPanel, unlimited web space, bandwidth, email accounts, and a free website migration service. The cheapest and most basic plan starts you off with a single hosted domain, four MySQL databases, and four mailing lists; the limit goes up with every tier. Linux shared hosting plans also come with access to RVsitebuilder, a browser-based website builder that enables you to design professional-looking websites without paying a small fortune for a team of designers and programmers.
Their Windows-based shared hosting plans use the Plesk control panel in lieu of cPanel. With the exception of the Microsoft-specific server features, all the features of the plans are the same as those of the Linux packages.
Their Linux-based reseller hosting plans are especially popular with those looking to start their own web hosting business. These include many features with all the necessary tools and support. With this plan, you get unlimited web space and bandwidth, 10 cPanel accounts, the WHM control panel, free private DNS, their website migration service, and the Softaculous script installer.
The Windows-based reseller hosting plans will provide you with reseller Plesk access to manage accounts. All the features you can get with this plan are the same as with the Linux plans, with a few minor differences. However, you can host far fewer websites with the Windows reseller packages compared to the Linux ones.
PrewebHost also has VPS hosting and dedicated server packages available.
Pricing and support
Cheap and reliable aren’t two words that often go together with a web host, but this is exactly what PrewebHost offers. Their cheapest and most popular plan, Shared Excite, is by far the most inexpensive I’ve seen on the market. You do have to purchase at least an annual or 2-year contract to secure that extremely low rate, but even then, it’s an extremely budget-friendly upfront investment.
Subsequent shared hosting plans are priced higher, but are still affordable. Also, the higher you go, the shorter the term you have to purchase.
In 2015, PrewebHost also began offering VPS hosting plans. In line with their shared hosting model, these have been priced extremely affordably, yet still give you all the basic features of a typical VPS plan. Their VPS and reseller hosting plans are an excellent choice for those who’d like to start a web hosting business but have limited capital to do so.
There aren’t any free plans or trials, but at the already-low rates they’re offering, I’m not complaining. They do offer a 30-day money back guarantee on all their hosting plans though (with the exception of dedicated server hosting).
PrewebHost is also one of the rare web hosts that offers a Price Freeze Guarantee. This means that their extremely affordable pricing schemes won’t change in the future, nor will they increase upon the renewal of your hosting plan. Their packages are also completely transparent with no hidden costs.
Support is equally reliable: this is available via email, a ticketing system, Skype, and live chat. I contacted them regarding setting up a WordPress website, then asked for help with some of the PHP coding. Not only did they respond promptly, but they gave me detailed support on the coding problem rather than referring me elsewhere.
