EHostOne’s Professional Plan is a yearly-based budget hosting plan with some nice features built in.

Although they advertise their plan’s as being $5.95 per month, you’ll have to pay $71.40 upfront for the year’s contract. For many site owners, this is a large commitment, particularly with a hosting company that they are not familiar with. No mention is made of a money back guarantee, so before you decide to use this company, it would be a good idea to contact their sales department to ensure that all of your questions are answered ahead of time.

This plan comes with 1 gig of disk space and 50 gigs of monthly bandwidth. Not a huge amount, but standard for a budget hosting plan. One free domain transfer or registration is included for all new accounts and you’ll have the ability to host as many subdomains as you need with this plan. Unlimited email accounts are offered, as well as a mailing list and three different webmail clients.

You’ll get 10 MySQL databases as well as support for PHP, Perl, SSL and FrontPage 98/2000/2003 extensions. For ecommerce customers, three different open source shopping carts are also provided and include Zen Cart, OSCommerce and AgoraCart. This is a common offering, and you could easily install any of these on any Unix server, as long as your hosting company supported them. Urchin stats and several other statistic programs are also available, which will help you keep on top of your site’s traffic.

Fantastico is provided, and you’ll get telephone and live chat support. Email and trouble ticket support is provided 24/7, but their phone support is only available during business hours. All in all, if you don’t mind purchasing a year’s worth of hosting, this is a good deal. However, EHostOne’s ranking slipped a little due to their lack of a money back guarantee.
