ServerWay offers four unique plans that range in price from $3.95 per month up to $29.95 per month. For this review, we’re going to focus on their Shared 04 plan, which is currently priced at $29.95 for a month-to-month contract. There is a price break if you decide to purchase more than one month’s hosting at a time.
This plan provides you with 6 gigs of disk space and 160 gigs of data transfer each month. For this price range, both are very high. In fact, some dedicated servers don’t come close to the bandwidth allotment, making this plan a very good choice if you are straining the limits of your current hosting plan. This is one of the most economically priced plans that offers this much bandwidth.
You’ll have the ability to have multiple domains on this server, as well as unlimited parked and add-on domains. ServerWay does not specify in their documentation if there is a limit as to the amount of unique domains you can host on one account, so if you need several, you may want to contact their sales department before making your purchase. Unlimited email accounts are available, as well as the standard unlimited aliases, forwarders and more. Three different webmail clients are also provided.
CPanel is available for your site administration, and you can see a demo of it on ServerWay’s site before you purchase a hosting plan. Perl, PHP, MySQL and CGI are all supported and you’ll also have the ability to run your own Cron jobs on the server. For sites that rely on this technology, this kind of access in a shared hosting account is rare. A shared SSL certificate is available and you’ll be able to take advantage of ServerWay’s free daily backups, which can be a real saver if you lose your site’s data.
In the event that your site goes down, there is a 24/7 emergency telephone contact, but at this time, it was not toll-free. Support is provided via a trouble ticket system, email and through their community forums. Having telephone support would have resulted in ServerWay having a higher ranking, but overall, this is a solid deal that features instant activation and a 30-day money back guarantee.Related Posts:
