Cyclone Hosting

Cyclone Hosting currently has several shared hosting plans and their prices are hard to beat. Their Starter F4 Planis currently priced at $9.95 per month and features a 30-day money back guarantee with a lot of great features. Let’s see what it has to offer. Currently, Cyclone Hosting does not require any set-up fees and their plans can be purchased on a month-to-month basis without any contracts.

You’ll get 2 gigs of disk space and 60 gigs of monthly data transfer, which is fantastic for this price range. If you need even more data transfer, their next plan up offers 110 gigs for just $15.95 per month, which is also very generous. Unlimited email and FTP accounts are provided as well as unlimited MySQL databases. It’s hard to find a budget priced hosting company that throws all of these features in, so this is very nice to see.

Fantastico is included free of charge, and you’ll be able to use CPanel to manage your site. Also included is RVSkins, which can change the overall look and feel of your control panel. This add-on is usually at least $5 with many hosting companies, so it’s refreshing to find it included free of charge with this plan. Several CGI scripts are included and go beyond the usual guestbook and forum offerings. You’ll get Entropy Search and Entropy Banner, FormMail Clone and much more.

The technical support options include live chat, email and self-help through their customer forums. Unfortunately, there is no mention of their support team’s hours of operation, so you may want to check with their sales department for more information before purchasing this account.

The one main downside with Cyclone is that currently, the only method of payment they accept is PayPal. This could be irritating for people who prefer to use their credit cards to pay for their hosting, or for customers that are averse to using PayPal. This fact took down Cyclone Hosting’s overall rating from it’s otherwise high level.
