As budget hosts go, you can usually expect the feature set to be lacking when the monthly price drops below $2. However, SiteFlip.com is currently offering a CPanel hosting plan for less than $1 per month that includes many features typically found on much more expensive hosting plans. Keep in mind that you will need to purchase a year’s worth of hosting, but for less than $12, it certainly won’t break the bank. SiteFlip.com does not charge any set-up fees, making this a truly affordable hosting plan.
The CPanel Express plan offers 100 megs of data storage and 3 gigs of monthly data transfer. This plan is ideal for very small personal sites, blog sites or for businesses that just need to get their online presence up and running. The amounts aren’t the best, but for the price, they should be sufficient for the usage mentioned above.
Unlimited MySQL databases are provided, which is extremely rare for a hosting plan at this price range. Also included are unlimited subdomains, subdomain redirects, phpMyAdmin, Wireless Application Protocol, support for Java Script, and unlimited FTP accounts. Unlimited email accounts, forwarders, autoresponders, mailing lists and aliases are also provided.
For applications, you’ll be able to select between several content management systems, blogging tools and more since Fantastico is provided free of charge. Several built-in CPanel scripts are also provided and include message boards, guestbooks and a php chat utility. The average technical support response time is currently just over 21 minutes. Support is provided by an online ticket manager, but no mention is made of whether or not support is available 24/7. With their average response time however, it would seem to indicate that this is available.
All in all, this is a very well priced plan that should include enough features to keep even the most budget conscious site owner happy.Related Posts:
