ASPNix is a Microsoft ASP.NET Hosting Advantage Member and offers everything from budget priced shared hosting to dedicated solutions. We’ll be focusing on their reseller plan for this review, but all of their plans feature two months free if you purchase a year’s worth of hosting as well as free set-up. A 30-day money back guarantee is also provided, as well as ASPNix’s 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Their Reseller Plan starts at $29.95 per month, but a year’s worth is only $299.50, which is a great savings. Considering that you can host up to 300 domains on one account, you can easily make this investment back in no time at all. It’s always difficult to recommend purchasing a year’s worth of hosting at once, but at this price, with the guarantee, it might not be a bad idea. 4 gigs of disk space and 200 gigs of monthly data transfer are offered, which is pretty competitive with other hosting plans in this price range.
Unlimited email accounts and FTP accounts are provided, but there is a 2 gig limit for email on this server. However, with careful management of your resources, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Unlike many NT Hosts, ASPNix offers both unlimited MS SQL and MySQL databases, which is fantastic to see. There is a limit of 1 gig per database, but given the size of this plan’s disk space, that’s understandable. MS SQL Server Web Administrator and PHPMyAdmin are provided for database administration. The popular Helm Control Panel is offered for site administration.
Several development tools are provided, such as Microsoft SOAP Toolkit 3.0, ASP.NET Mobile Controls and Office Web Components. In addition ASP.NET 1.1 and 2.0 are also supported. The available developer features are too numerous to list here, but it’s well worth checking out to see all that this plan can do. A shared SSL certificate is provided free of charge, but if you prefer a private certificate, you can add this on for just $27.95 per year, which is a great price.
Support is offered 24/7 by email, and this is the plan’s only downside. The addition of telephone support would have moved this plan to the top of our NT reseller hosting plan. As it is, ASPNix comes pretty close with this plan that provides plenty of features at a very good price.Related Posts:
