The Lunarpages Shuttle Plan combines value with a generous amount of features that are hard to find with other hosting companies. Let’s take a look at what they have to offer. Their standard hosting plan, the Shuttle Plan starts at $7.95 a month with free set-up if you purchase their annual plan. Lunarpages promises not only a stellar hosting package, but above average support and they actually deliver.

Included with this starter account is a 3 gig storage limit, which should be more than enough for most webmasters. 400 gigs of data transfer is allowed each month, and they will even transfer your site to their servers for free. If you do not already have a domain name, you can register one with Lunarpages for free with your hosting account and they will pay for it for the life of the domain. This feature alone makes Lunarpages one of the best values in hosting plans.

Their servers are Dreamweaver and FrontPage compatible. MySQL databases are included, and you can have unlimited parked domains and subdomains with your account. Unlimited FTP accounts are also provided, as well as support for PHP, Perl and Phyton. You can easily control your site from an online control panel, where you can access your site statistics, email, Fantastico script library as well as the other add-ons that are included with your account.

Fantastico alone is worth more than the hosting price, and you will also get free blogging software, forum software, image galleries, 6 CMS’s, a chat module and much more with your account. Flash and Shockwave are supported, and you can stream Real Audio and Video from your server. If you need the enhanced capability of managing your own MIME types, this feature is also included.

Perhaps the best feature overall with Lunarpages is their support. They offer 24/7 toll-free, live chat and online support, as well as a customer forum where you can quickly find answers to common problems. Online documentation and tutorials are also provided, free of charge.

The ability to have a dedicated IP address, a dedicated SSL certificate, virus protection and the features mentioned above all in one low-price package earned Lunarpages one of our highest rankings.
