Features and Ease of Use
If you are moving from another host to ScopeHosts, your transition will be trouble free. That’s because they promise to carry out free migration for you. All you have to do is get in touch with them and ask them to transfer your current websites to their servers. They’ll happily help.
For those starting from scratch and not well versed in website programming, there is a website builder at ScopeHosts. The website builder is easy to use and, despite the simplicity, can be really helpful in creating professional websites. You can also easily make use of applications like WordPress, Magento, and Joomla among others to create interactive websites.
Comodo SSL certificates are also offered, free of charge if you opt for the Pro package. Free SSL certificates from Let’s Encrypt are available to everyone. There are a number of other security tools available in addition to free spam protection.
As for managing your websites, you can opt for either the Plesk control panel or the cPanel. Both of them come free of charge and are included in your hosting package. This way you can manage your websites, files, data, settings, and features from an easy-to-use admin panel. They offer a free demo of the cPanel on their website which is worth checking out.

Even the Mini package allows two domains with unlimited subdomains. The Pro package, which comes at an amazingly affordable price, features unlimited SSD space, bandwidth and domains. You also get free Comodo SSL in the Pro package along with a free domain for life! Discounts are available on yearly subscriptions and there are a number of payment methods available including Paypal, MasterCard, American Express, Visa, and Bank Transfer.
I tried to test their live chat, but despite it saying they were online, no one was there. The first response I received was clearly automated. What surprised me even more was the absence of a Contact Us button on the home page. This was a big surprise considering the website claims to have 24/7 award-winning support. It’s possible that you can only access their support once you log in through the customer portal. Their Facebook and Twitter pages are quite active and are another way of getting in touch with them.
