Features and Ease of Use
XeroxHost uses servers in Los Angeles and Chicago for customers who use shared hosting. It offers plans with varying features and resources to enable individuals and businesses to host their websites on the plan that most suits their needs.
Customers on any of the four plans receive:
- 99.99% Uptime Guarantee
- Daily automatic backups with R1Soft
- Free SSL certificate
- Free domain on three years or one-year payment, on some plans
- One or unlimited add-on domains
- Unlimited SSD storage
Website speed is essential to converting website visitors. Be it on mobile or desktop, it plays a huge role in your sales, bounce rate, and SEO. To improve website speed, XeroxHost uses LiteSpeed WebServer. This makes websites 30 times faster than those not using LiteSpeed WebServer.
Another notable feature that this vendor offers is DDoS protection. No website is immune to DDoS regardless of its size, and this is a cause for alarm because asides from locking you out, such attacks can be used as an opportunity to install malware or get sensitive data from your server. With XeroxHost’s protection of attacks up to 30Gbps, that is sufficient protection against most common DDoS attacks.
Xeroxhost supports Python, Ruby, and PHP. Less experienced users can use its provided free drag-and-drop website builder. There’s no software auto-installer, though, so if you want to use a CMS, you’ll have to install it manually.
Pricing and Support
XeroxHost’s shared hosting prices are pocket-friendly, as the prices attached to the features on offer are low-cost. You can pay monthly, annually, biennially, or triennially. However, be aware that the prices advised on the web hosting pages do not add up to what you’ll pay at checkout – some plans are lower-priced than advertised, while others are higher.
Nevertheless, the difference isn’t huge. Also, it offers a free domain registration and SSL certificate. That cuts down your cost and might make this vendor worthwhile for you. Plus, it states that you can contact support if you want a free trial, so that’s a possibility.
XeroxHost has a 30-day money-back guarantee policy on web hosting, as well.
Although there is a knowledge base section, there are only two articles – one of them being a support tutorial. That’s not enough for customers looking to solve issues quickly without having to contact customer support.
However, customer support is available 24/7 through online ticket, email, and phone. There’s also a live chat. I sent an email and received accurate responses to my questions.
