Features and Ease of Use
VMakerHOST offers three shared plans called Starter, Standard, and Premium. These plans come with the following features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- From 5GB to 20GB storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
The plans run on Linux OS, so if you need Windows hosting, you’ll have to look elsewhere. For your dynamic website, it offers MySQL/MariaDB databases. You can program in Perl and different versions of Ruby, Python, and PHP, which you can select from.
It offers both cPanel and DirectAdmin control panels that can be selected at the point of ordering. These control panels allow you to manage every aspect of your website easily. Through them, you have access to the Softaculous automatic installer that comes with hundreds of scripts to build a website or an online store. It also allows you to install a gallery or an analytic tool.
For performance, it combines two tools that are used widely in the industry and those are SSDs and the Litespeed web server. SSDs are quite popular for their performance, while the LiteSpeed webserver delivers the website’s static content faster and with minimal resource consumption. Litespeed also increases the performance of PHP.
Other features that VMakerHOST offers are SSH access and cron job scheduling. SSH provides you with secure access to your account from a remote device, while Cron jobs are tasks that you can schedule to occur at intervals on your account.
Pricing and Support
The good news with this host provider is that you do not need to spend a lot to purchase any plan since they are all cheap. Furthermore, it offers monthly and annual billing cycles. Free domain registration is available on annual billing and applicable only to the Premium plan.
VMakerHOST’s payment methods include PayPal, debit/credit cards, bank transfer, Easypaisa, and JazzCash. If you are not pleased with the service after subscribing, it offers you a refund window of 15 days during which you can request your money back.
Client support channels include a contact form, email address, knowledge base, and frequently asked questions (FAQ). I sent an email to support and got a response not long after.
