Nexpoint

Nexpoint Hosting is a well regarded hosting company known for their variety of hosting solutions. For this review, we’ll be taking a look at their NT Enterprise Plan, which is a little pricey, but has a lot to offer. Let’s take a look and see what you can expect from Nexpoint Hosting.

For $69.95 per month, based on their monthly-billing plan, you’ll get 1 gig of disk space and 40 gigs of monthly datatransfer. As we mentioned previously, this price is pretty high when you compare it to other hosting companies offering similar packages. Add in the $50 set-up fee and this host really falls short when it comes to price. However, there are other ways to measure value, so let’s keep going. Same-day set-up is provided, which is handy, and you will get unlimited email addresses, aliases and mailing lists, which is always nice to see. An email control panel is also provided, making it easier to add, change and delete email accounts.

For database needs, you will get unlimited ODBC Data Sources, ODBC Connectivity and a 100MB SQL Server 2000. This isn’t earth shattering, but since many NT hosts fall down in this area, it’s nice to see databases included. Numerous scripting languages are supported, including Cold Fusion MX 7, ASP .NET Framework v1.1, Active Server Pages 3.0, VBScript, PerlScript, PHP 4.3.2, CGI and Perl 5.0. Supported software packages include: FrontPage / InterDev, Macromedia UltraDev, Macromedia Dreamweaver and Macromedia Flash / Shockwave.

This plan does support SSL, but you’ll need to provide your own certificate, which adds yet another expense. You can however configure your own mime types, and password protect your directories. Daily back-ups are provided, and a 30-day money-back guarantee is offered on all of their accounts. Technical support options include live chat and a trouble ticket system.

Overall, while this plan does have very nice feature, it just can’t cut it when it comes to value. A little tweaking on the monthly price and the removal of the set-up fee would go a long way towards improving Nexpoint’s ranking.
