BYOHosting offers several different types of hosting plans, all of which carry their 30-day money back and their 100% satisfaction guarantees. One thing to keep in mind with these plans is that they all require one year’s worth of hosting to be purchase in advance. However, with low prices and lots of features, they have still managed to put together some really nice plans.

Their Mega Plan features 20 gigs of disk space and 300 gigs of monthly data transfer and works out to around $25 per month. You’ll be able to host up to two domains on this plan, and the set-up is currently free. Also included is a free domain name, if you don’t already have one registered. You’ll be allowed 200 subdomains and you’ll also be able to configure your own MX records with this plan.

2000 email accounts and 4000 aliases are provided, which should be enough even for large companies. A spam and anti-virus filter are provided and 7 mailing lists are offered as well. 40 MySQL databases come with this plan and phpMyAdmin is included for their administration. It’s always nice to see unlimited databases, but 40 should be adequate for most sites. A control panel is provided, as well as up to 20 FTP accounts. Since you can only host 2 domains with this plan, the number of FTP accounts shouldn’t be a problem.

The activation time is instant for this plan and SSL is supported with the ability to generate your own certificate. Webalizer is provided for site statistics, as well as a bandwidth logger. You’ll have access to your raw site and error logs, which can be useful for debugging scripts. Two free bonuses are being offered with this plan, and include SiteStudio and Elefante, which includes over 28 scripts that offer content management, blogging tools, discussion forums and much more.

For technical support, you can use their live chat feature between 4 am and 10pm Eastern. A ticket system is available 24/7, and several tutorials are also provided. Toll-free telephone support is also offered 24/7, which is very nice to see. International callers will appreciate the additional telephone numbers to contact the support department.

Overall, BYOHosting has done a great job by combining a high level of support with a relatively low price, high bandwidth and disk space allotments and a nice set of features to create a comprehensive hosting plan.
