Exabytes specializes in business and ASP hosting, and offers a variety of different plans for just about any site. Let’s take a look at their Ebiz Windows plan to see what it has to offer.

The price is the first thing that stands out, currently set at just $3.65 a month. At that price, it’s easy to pay for two year’s hosting up front. If you prefer a yearly plan, the price goes up to $4.65, which is still incredibly reasonable, particularly for a business hosting plan. 5 gigs of disk space and 50 gigs of data transfer are included with this plan, which is, once again, very reasonable. There is currently a free domain offer for all new accounts, but this may change in the future.

Unlike many NT hosting plans, you’ll get 50 MySQL databases with this account. It’s common to find only one database offered, even for plans that are three times as expensive, making Exabytes definitely stand out from the crowd. ASP.Net 2.0 is now supported, a great benefit to sites relying on this technology.

Unlimited email accounts are provided, as well as SPAM and virus protection. A web-based email client is also offered, in addition to unlimited aliases and forwarders. You can use their HELM control panel to manage your site, or you can take advantage of their support for Dreamweaver and FrontPage if you prefer. Access to raw log files is provided, a rare thing in budget, shared hosting plans. Webstats are provided for your site and you’ll also get support for .NET, Microsoft Mobile Toolkit, Python and WSE.

The pre-installed components are numerous and well worth the monthly fee. You’ll get 24/7 technical support either by email or a trouble ticket system, but telephone support is not offered at this time.

For the money, this is an incredible deal that small businesses should definitely consider before selecting their web hosting company.
