DB Multimedia

If you are a fan of the Plesk 7 Control Panel, DBMultimedia has several hosting plans built around this popular panel. These plans are all priced on a yearly basis, so the actual monthly cost is quite low. Let’s take a look at their Hosting Plan 4 and see what is has to offer.

This plan comes with 1 gig of data storage space and 20 gigs of monthly data transfer. It is currently priced at $65.95 for the year, which boils down to about $5.50 a month. While this price is quite low, the storage and transfer amounts are too. However, for most personal or small business sites, these amounts may be sufficient.

Unlimited email accounts, aliases and forwarders are provided, as well as 24/7 FTP access. However, there is no mention on how many FTP accounts are provided with this plan, so if you plan on using this account for a reseller business, or if you have a lot of collaborators on your site, you may want to check with DBMultimedia’s sale department before making your purchase. 10 MySQL databases are provided with this plan, and you’ll be able to use phpMyAdmin to manage them.

The Plesk control panel comes with an OS Commerce auto-installer and features the ability to manage your site’s email addresses, files, password protected directories, and much more. If you’re not familiar with the Plesk control panel, DBMultimedia has provided a demo where you can take it for a spin.

There are two major failings with this plan. First, no mention is made of technical support or if it is available at all. This is an area for concern. Secondly, whenever you lock yourself into a year’s worth of hosting, we like to see a 30-day money back guarantee, which should give you time to make sure that this hosting company can perform up to your standards. Although it is well priced, we would advise contacting this hosting company directly before making a purchase to make sure that they do offer at least some technical support.
