Kingshosting

Kingshosting is currently offering three different shared hosting plans, all of which are less than $11 per month. These plans all feature one hour set-ups and a 30-day money back guarantee. For this review, we’re taking a look at their Developer Plan which is currently priced at $10.95 per month.

This plan includes 5 gigs of disk space and 20 gigs of monthly data transfer. A quick look at Kingshosting’s user policies reveals that they do not allow any reselling of space on your account and that they do limit sites that use excessive resources. CGI applications that use a flat file database, Chat/IRC, web proxies and mailing lists are strictly prohibited with this hosting company. If you need these types of applications for your site, this is definitely not the right hosting company for your needs. However, they do allow you to run a message board, just as long as it is based on PHP and not CGI.

Unlimited email addresses, FTP accounts and MySQL databases are provided, as well as over 50 scripts that are available for installation on your account. Dreamweaver is supported as well as Front Page. You’ll be able to stream audio and video files with Quicktime, Real or WMA extensions, but keep in mind that this hosting company does not appreciate sites that overuse server resources. If you plan on having a lot of rich media files, you may run into a few problems.

Support is offered by email, but it is not stated if this support is 24/7. Their servers are monitored 24/7, but no other information is provided. This is a well priced plan, but one that does have some pitfalls. We recommend reading their terms of use policy before signing up with this host, and making sure that your site won’t run into any difficulties with their limits.
