Netsite Vault

Netsite Vault Hosting has three hosting plans that are geared towards business users. Their Netsite Cart plan comes equipped with several options for an ecommerce site and starts at $26.95 a month. While that’s a little high, given some of the limits for this plan, let’s see if it’s worth the money.

You’ll get 200 megs of disk space and 8 gigs of monthly data transfer. The disk space allotment is very low for a business site, but it may be enough for a small ecommerce business, if they do not have a lot of products or need for additional space. The bandwidth allotment is pretty standard when coupled with the amount of disk space, but it’s a little low considering the monthly price. However, most sites should come well under this allotment.

25 email accounts are provided, which again, is a little low. However, GnuPG is offered, which is a nice feature if you prefer to have your orders emailed to you. It’s nice to see this option in a plan like this, and it’s not a common feature with many hosting companies. A web-based control panel is provided, and this plan supports Real Audio/Video streaming. However, you won’t be able to store many files with the low amount of disk space. A real time chat room is included which can be useful if you plan to offer customer or sales support on your site. This is a very nice feature for an ecommerce site, and again, not one that is commonly available.

A shared SSL certificate is offered and a full business script archive comes with this plan. While Netsite Vault doesn’t go into what is included in this package, one can hope it contains at least a shopping cart. That seems to be the one thing this ecommerce plan is missing, at least in their documentation.

24/7 technical support is available through their help desk, and this plan does come with a 30-day money back guarantee. While there are some large deficits, such as a low amount of disk space and a relatively higher price tag, the features do outweigh this and it would be a good fit for many small companies.
