Features and Ease of Use
Royalfreehost does not just offer free hosting solutions, but has equipped them with fast and reliable hosting features to help individuals meet their business needs. Some of the standard features you can expect are:
- Softaculous one-click installer
- 24/7 customer support
- MySQL databases
- Multiple PHP versions up to PHP 7.0
- Free SSL certificates
- Cron jobs
- Free subdomain
- cPanel control panel
Royalfreehost seems committed to excellence. Its hosting solutions are powered by high-performance servers with multicore Intel processors making sure it maintains its clients’ website loading speeds. Moreover, these servers use clustered technology that helps spread the loading capacity on servers, thus maintaining high availability.
I’m intrigued by this vendor’s free hosting plan that comes with features to help startups and individuals launch their online presence. First, after you sign up, you are provided with a free and easy-to-use cPanel control panel to help you manage your website. The free hosting plan is then equipped with other features that include unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, FTP access, and a free subdomain name.
At all account levels, the Royalfreehost hosting packages come with MySQL 5.6 databases, an online browser with a file manager, , .htaccess, and support multiple versions of PHP languages up to PHP 7.0. That said, the downside of this hosting provider is that it does not offer backup services and it also maintains that customer’s websites should not have any backups or downloads.
Pricing and Support
As hinted above, Royalfreehost has committed itself to providing free packages to its clients. As for the paid package, when I clicked on the link to find out more about the package, the link redirected to another hosting vendor, iFastNet. It’s possible that its paid packages are just for link building purposes.
Since Royalfreehost hosting services are free, they don’t have a refund policy. Moreover, its powerful servers provide an uptime guarantee of up to 99.9%.
Royalfreehost 24/7 customer support team is available only via email. The vendor has telephone support, but I had to dig deep into its Facebook account to find it. The hosting firm does not have a live chat or ticketing system.
Royalfreehost has yet to put up a knowledge base but has an FAQ section available on its website.
