In the market for a solid ecommerce hosting package that includes plenty of extras to get your site up and running? You may want to take a look at HostGo’s ecommerce plans. Their Shop Pro plan starts at $19.95 a month and offers several features that are typically found which plans in a much higher price range.

This plan is ideal for small to medium sized businesses with moderate traffic, and larger needs for disk space. With 4 gigs of data storage and 200 gigs of monthly data transfer, this plan should give these types of sites plenty of room to grow. 400 email accounts are included, as well as unlimited autoresponders and forwarderes. PHPList is included so you can keep in touch with your customers.

100 FTP accounts are provided, but you’ll get unlimited subdomains and MySQL databases. Several scripts are available for installation, including blogging, content management and ecommerce tools. For shopping carts, you’ll be able to choose between four different carts that are offered with their auto-install scripts, but we recommend going with their included Miva Merchant 5 Shopping Cart, which is included with this hosting plan, free of charge. At a $995 value, this is quite a deal and one that isn’t often found at this price point.

A free shared SSL certificate is available, or you can purchase your own. A dedicated IP address is available for free with this account, but you’ll need to specifically request this as an add-on. If you plan on using your own SSL certificate, this is very important.

Real live person support is offered through a help desk, but telephone support is not offered at this time. All in all, this is a great plan for businesses that need more functionality from their ecommerce hosting plan or sites that need more room to grow their online presence.
