Features and Ease of Use
T7Live offers WordPress optimized shared plans to individuals, startups, and large businesses. These plans are three in number and are called Starter, Premium, and Advanced. Their features include:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily automatic backups
- Unlimited disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
T7Live’s shared plans are hosted on the cloud. This means that each client’s website uses the resources of several load-balanced clustered servers to accommodate all aspects of hosting your site. This is perfect for websites with traffic levels that go up and down, as server resources can easily be scaled up and down when required.
It uses the LiteSpeed web server and LSCache tool, which works perfectly well in delivering both the static and dynamic content of your website to visitors.
T7Live gives you an option to select from multiple versions of PHP right from the control panel. It also offers MariaDB/MySQL databases.
It offers cPanel and through it, you can access the Softaculous one-click installer. This tool enables you to install WordPress without having to type in a single line of code and since these plans are fully optimized for WordPress, your website speed is further increased. It also allows you to install several other applications including Joomla and Prestashop.
Security is an important feature that every website owner requires. T7Live offers nice security features like malware scanning via Imunify360 and proactive brute-force attack protection to keep your website safe from hacking attempts.
For better redundancy and speed, the vendor offers SSD with RAID 10 technology. SSDs use flash memory to store data, which provides much better performance and reliability than HDD. While RAID 10 combines disk mirroring to different locations and disk striping to protect data.
Pricing and Support
T7Live offers prices that are very cheap. Its three shared plans can be subscribed to on a monthly, annual, biennial, or triennial basis. Free domain registration to one extension is available on annual billing cycles and higher. This, however, is not applicable to its Starter plan.
This option gives you the opportunity to test your website without any extra charges before you make payments. Additionally, the company extends a one-time promotional discount of up to 40% on its shared plans.
The company accepts payments through the Instamojo payment gateway. If you think the service is not pleasing, you can request your money back within 30 days of subscribing and you’ll be given a refund.
T7Live offers email, knowledge base (which is more like a forum), and phone support. It also has a contact form through which you can send your phone number and request from the support staff to call you. I sent an email, but I never got a response.
