Omnis Network has a truly budget hosting plan that doesn’t scrimp on the features, even with their entry-level account. For just a few dollars more, you can double your diskspace, bandwidth and email accounts, if you are looking for a larger solution. There are currently no set-up fees with Omnis, but they do have a three month billing cycle, which may turn away customers interested in a month-to-month plan. Their 12 month contract for their Unix Hosting Plus Plan is currently set at $6.95 a month, and goes up to $8.95 a month if you elect the 3 month billing cycle.
A webbased control panel and email client are included in all plans, as well as email virus scanning, spam filtering and a number of POP3, IMAP, SMTP options. If you need to stream audio or video files on your server, you’ll appreciate the built-in ability to streak Quicktime or Real Media files. Macromedia Flash is also supported, and Frontpage extensions are included with all packages.
If you need to password protect your directories, or if you prefer to have access to your raw-log files, these features are also included. Rounding out the offering is a shared SSL certificate, which can save you around $100, as well as server-side includes, site statistics, domain name pointers and PHP4.
Omnis monitors their network 24/7 and features an online knowledge base as well as a toll-free number for support, or if you prefer, an online contact form. A 30 day money back guarantee is provided on all of Omnis’s accounts.
If you are looking for Windows hosting, Omnis also provides similar plan packages that start at $10.95 a month for the three month billing cycle, dropping down to $8.95 a month for a year’s contract. All of the above features are included with Windows accounts, but you receive ASP instead of PHP4 as well as ASP.NET.
This is a great starter plan with a good amount of features for an entry-level hosting package. The disk space is generous and the transfer amounts are solid. The toll-free telephone support, lack of a set-up fee and the money back guarantee added to our overall rating, as well as the inclusion of a shared SSL certificate.Related Posts:
