As budget hosts go, 2MHost certainly doesn’t scrimp on any features for their customers. With plans starting as low as $1.95 a month, you wouldn’t expect any extras to be included. But, to 2MHost’s credit, they offer quite a few. Let’s take a look at their Personal Package and see what it has to offer.
This plan comes with 100 megs of disk space and 10 gigs of monthly data transfer. However, this company does have a policy that limits its customers to less than 10% of a servers resources. So, if your site’s traffic exceeds this amount, your site will be deactivated. We don’t recommend this hosting package for sites with a large amount of traffic, but it is ideal for a small personal web site. 10 subdomains are also offered with this plan and 2MHost will even move your site from your previous server to their servers at no extra charge.
Cpanel is offered, as well as several webmaster programs that are valued at over $500. This add-on includes Form Maker, FAQ Manager, PHPCart, webCalendar, Vote Pro 4.0, Dyna Form and several other programs. What is even more surprising is that Fantastico is also included, with nearly 40 scripts available for installation. Unfortunately, if you need MySQL databases, which is likely if you plan to use Fantastico, these are not included with this account. However, for $1.95 a month, this is to be expected. You can add on databases at a rate of $1.50 per month.
If you need an SSL certificate for ecommerce applications, a shared option is available for an extra $2 per month. If you plan to use your own certificate, you’ll need to purchase a dedicated IP address, which is an additional $1 per month. However, 2MHost will install your certificate for free.
24/7 support is provided by live chat, but that appears to be the only technical support available at this time. Overall, this plan is extremely well priced, even if you do have to purchase a year’s worth of hosting in advance. While it’s common to find all of these features combined for less than $24 a month, it’s rare to find them for less than $24 a year.Related Posts:
