CrucialWebHosting offers a variety of different hosting plans, all of which are reasonably priced. For this review, we’ll be taking a look at their Bronze Plan, which is currently priced at $4.99 per month for the monthly billing option. They do offer one month free if you purchase your hosting a year in advance, and there is no set-up fee for either option.

This plan comes with 2 gigs of disk space and 50 gigs of monthly data transfer, which is really terrific given the monthly hosting fee. While you can host an unlimited amount of domains with this plan, you are not allowed to resell the space. This plan would be very useful for a company that has more than one site or for an individual with several clients in need of hosting space. They do offer reseller plans if you need this ability for your company.

An unlimited amount of email addresses are provided and each one will come with spam and anti-virus protection. Three different webmail clients are provided free of charge, and you’ll also get an unlimited amount of autoresponders, forwarders, aliases and mailing lists. Unlimited MySQL databases are also offered and PHPMyAdmin comes installed for their configuration. Fantastico De Luxe comes free with this plan and you’ll also get an online site builder, which is nice to see.

Four different shopping carts are offered, but if you need an SSL certificate, you’ll have to purchase your own. You may also need to add-on a dedicated IP address if you go this route, since this plan does not offer that capability. Support is provided for Zend, PHP, Perl, ImageMagick, and SSI. For rich media, support is provided for Flash/Shockwave, Real Media and Windows Media. It’s nice to see a company supporting all of the most popular media formats in one hosting plan.

Daily back-ups are performed and you’ll be able to schedule your own cron jobs, password protect your directories and control pretty much all of the aspects of your site from the online control panel. Technical support is offered 24/7 via their helpdesk and live chat. A 30 day money back guarantee is also provided, which really rounds out this plan. Overall, the low price, available features and support make this plan truly worth a second look.
