Features and Ease of Use
Yocta offers shared plans called Basic, Professional, Business, Advanced, and Gold. Their features include:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Automatic backups
- From 500MB to 50GB disk space
- From 2GB to 50GB bandwidth
- From one to unlimited add-on domains
Yocta uses dual Intel Xeon processors for the shared hosting servers that provide top-notch performance. Another source of speed is its SSD based servers. Compared to HDDs, SSD powered servers are way faster.
Also, Yocta uses the CloudLinux operating system. This OS offers the stability of a virtual environment as all accounts are isolated from each other. Speed and security are further increased with CloudLinux.
Its security measures include protection against viruses, IP blocking, and password protected files. It also offers an SSL certificate on all plans to secure the communications on your website.
The programming languages that it supports include Python, Perl, and different versions of PHP. For those who want to use CMSes and for beginners to web design, it offers a one-click installer with which you can install different open source applications. That includes galleries, discussion forums, blogs, and E-commerce platforms among others.
All plans come with the Plesk control panel to give you easy access to the files, features, and tools that make up your hosting account.
Pricing and Support
The hosting plans, including Basic, Professional, and Business, feature affordable rates, ensuring accessibility for all. However, the Advanced and Gold plans, while not overly costly, do not align their pricing equitably with the accompanying resources they provide.
Yocta offers monthly, annual, biennial, and triennial billing cycles. It also offers a free domain registration on annual subscription plans and above. Annual billing cycles also come with good discounts. Its payment methods include PayPal, bank transfer, and CCAvenue.
The Yocta support team can be reached through live chat, telephone, email, contact form, and ticket. There is also a knowledge base section and a frequently asked questions section on the website. The support staff on the live chat channel answered my questions but with delayed responses a few times.
