Features and Ease of Use
YayHosting offers three Linux hosting packages and two reseller hosting packages (one shared and one VPS, with easy migration between the two). All the Linux hosting packages provide you with:
- 99.5% uptime
- cPanel control panel
- CloudLinux OS
- 10 GB to 50 GB disk space
- 50 GB to 40 GB monthly traffic
- Unlimited MySQL databases with phpMyAdmin
- Unlimited domains/subdomains
- Unlimited email addresses with a spam filter
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- ionCube Loader
- Virus, malware, and DDoS protection
- LiteSpeed Web Server
- Comprehensive DNS management
- Daily backups
All hosting plans come with an SSL certificate to secure your site and give your visitors confidence, and the Cloudflare CDN protects you against certain kinds of cyberattacks as well as improving page loading speeds.
With the one-click installer, you can easily install over 250 web apps, including WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla, for your blog-based website or e-commerce store. This means you don’t need much technical knowledge to establish a web presence.
If you do have technical expertise, you’ll be pleased to know that you get SSH access and you can schedule Cron jobs to run scripts regularly rather than having to execute them manually every time.
Pricing and Support
YayHosting’s Linux hosting packages are cheap. You can pay for them in Swedish krona on an annual basis via credit/debit cards, MobilePay, or (for public institutions) EAN. There are no money-back guarantees and no trial periods as far as I know, which is a pity since you have to sign up for at least a year.
You can contact YayHosting’s customer support team by telephone, email, or live chat. I received no reply to my email approach, but current customers should get rapid responses through the client area. The lack of response wouldn’t be so bad if there were adequate self-support resources, but the knowledge base is bare.
