Founded back in 2001, American hosting provider ThePrimeHost offers a wide range of hosting solutions including shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated servers. Its well-organized and informative website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
ThePrimeHost offers two kinds of shared hosting, Unlimited Hosting and SSD Hosting, that differ mainly in disk space but have these features in common:
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Softaculous installer
- RVsitebuilder Pro
- Cron jobs
The Unlimited Hosting packages come with 10 GB to 40 GB disk space and from 1 to 30 add-on domains, which should be sufficient for personal blogs and even small businesses. As you might expect, the SSD Hosting plans provide less disk space of 3 GB to 15 GB.
All shared hosting plans include the user-friendly cPanel control panel to manage all aspects of your website, such as adjusting your website backup intervals, moving files, and adding/removing domains. The integrated Softaculous application installer helps you install your favorite CMS and other apps such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, and more.
To build your website in the first place, the cost-efficient RVsitebuilder Pro allows you to create a website with a simple drag-and-drop interface from 900 design templates, and you don’t need design skills to do so.
Pricing and Support
For the features provided, ThePrimeHost’s shared hosting prices are affordable and can be paid for with PayPal or credit cards. You can also choose to be billed monthly or annually, and the 30-day money-back guarantee should make you feel better about making the annual commitment.
ThePrimeHost’s customer contact channels are limited to telephone and ticket. Unfortunately, my test support ticket received no response, and there is no useable knowledge base to fall back on:
