OC Hosting

OC Hosting offers a variety of different hosting packages, ranging from shared Unix servers, to specialized media servers, dedicated options and even Cold Fusion hosting. For this review, we focused on their shared hosting options, which are quite robust for their price range.

Their starter shared hosting plan offers 2000 megs of storage, coupled with unlimited email accounts and a 20 gig monthly data transfer limit. 5 subdomains are included for free with your new account, and if you pre-pay for one year, OC Hosting will pay for your domain name registration. Currently, no set-up fees are being charged for new accounts.

A static IP address is provided for each new account, and OC Hosting limits the amount of domains that can be hosted on each server to ensure that your site won’t get slowed down by your neighbors. Their set-up time is fast, usually within 4 hours, making this a great solution if you need to get your site up and running quickly.

Detailed online billing is provided, as well as 24/7 toll-free phone support, PHP LiveHelper and a 7-day money back guarantee. OC Hosting promises that you’ll receive all of the technical support you need, whatever time you need it, without any restrictions. This benefit is truly helpful for beginner webmasters as well as professionals.

CPanel is included with your account, making it easy to administer your site’s email, statistics, files and more. MySQL databases are included, as well as support for the following plug-ins: Vream, Voxware, Vivo Active, Midi, IPIX, Sizzler, Fractal, True Speech Digital Audio and much more. If you plan on running a site that will have streaming audio or video, this hosting package is definitely worth the money.

Weekly back-ups of your site are provided, which could be a little better. Many hosting companies offer daily back-ups, so if you are worried about losing you data, you may want to either perform your own site back-ups using your CPanel, or you may need to look for a different hosting company. This lowered our overall ranking for OC Hosting, but their features, support offerings and built-in CPanel kept it safely in the high range.
