HadleyHost currently has seven hosting packages that range in price from $3 per month to $24 per month. For this review, we’ll be looking at one of their mid-level plans, the Hadley500. It is priced at $11.80 per month, but you will get two months free if you purchase a year’s worth of hosting in advance. Unfortunately, they don’t mention if they offer a money-back guarantee, so you may want to try their services out for a month before taking the plunge to pay for a whole year.

CPanel is the available control panel for all of Hadley’s plans and they do provide a 99.9% uptime guarantee. This plan comes with 500 megs of disk space and 7 gigs of monthly data transfer, which is a little low given the competition in this price range, but adequate for most needs. You can add-on up to 500 domains with this plan, which is nice, and up to 500 subdomains. 500 FTP accounts are provided, and it’s always nice to see a hosting company match the amount of allowable FTP accounts to the amount of domains you can host.

500 email address and 500 MySQL databases are offered. They don’t mention how many autoresponders, mailing lists or aliases are allowed, so you may want to check with their sales department before purchasing this plan if you do need these options. Support is offered for Perl, PHP, CGI, ImageMagick, GD and Curl, and you’ll be able to create your own custom error pages, password protect your directories and more. PHPMyAdmin is offered for your database management and a shared SSL certificate is provided, which is nice to see.

Hadley is a UK hosting company, but they do offer telephone support for their customers. Keep in mind that this will be a toll-call, so if you are in the US, you’ll be paying international rates. This service is available 24/7 however, and you can also use their trouble ticket system, email or MSN IM if you prefer. Hadley also offers what they call “other services” for all of their customers. These services range from advice and assistance on your site design, installation of scripts, minor website modifications and more. This is a nice touch and one that helped Hadley’s overall ranking in our directory.

Their website is a little difficult to navigate, but overall, this is a nice hosting plan with a few drawbacks, but several good features.
