DGC Technologies

DGC Technologies has quite a few well priced hosting plans, but what makes this company stand out are the perks that they offer for all new customers. Let’s take a look at their entry level plan, the Unix Bronze plan, to see what they have to offer.

This plan comes with 500 megs of disk space and 10 gigs of monthly data transfer, which isn’t astounding, but reasonable considering the monthly price tag. A static IP is provided, which is rare when it comes to shared hosting. If you would like the option of a custom nameserver for your site, you can add this on for an additional $29 per month. Most customers won’t need this option, but it’s an interesting add-on. Set-up is guaranteed to be same-day, so you should be able to get up and running in no time at all.

1 main FTP account is provided, and unlimited email address are supplied. It would have been nice to see unlimited FTP accounts, but once again, this shouldn’t bother most users. For ecommerce needs, a free shopping cart suite is included as well as SSL support. 30 CGI scripts come with this package, but there is no mention on whether any MySQL databases are provided.

Now, let’s get on to the perks. You’ll get free e-books covering topics on marketing your site and getting your site up and running with DGC, over $150 in advertising credits with Yahoo!, Google and Mamma.com and each year on your anniversary date, you’ll get a special gift. DGC bills their technical support as “true” 24/7 support. There is a toll-free support telephone number as well as an online support area with documentation, a ticket submission system and more.

For $9.97 per month, this is a very solid plan that packs in some very nice features with great technical support.
