TRK Hosting

TRKHosting offers shared, reseller and dedicated hosting at reasonable rates. Their budget-priced shared plans don’t skimp on the features and for this review, we’re going to take a look at their Supreme Shared Hosting plan.

This plan starts at $22.95 per month and features 1 gig of disk space and 30 gigs of monthly data transfer. The amount of monthly transfer is nice, but for the price, the plan could use a little more disk space. Fantastico De Luxe is included free of charge with all of their shared plans however, which brings up TRK’s overall ranking. There is a 30 day money back guarantee on this plan, so you should have more than enough time to take it for a test drive to make sure you’re happy with their services.

Unlimited email accounts are offered and support is provided for Procmail. The typical unlimited autoresponders and aliases are also included with this plan. Unlimited MySQL databases are available and support is provided for remote MySQL access. They don’t mention if PHPMyAdmin is included, or another tool to manage your databases, but these applications can easily be installed on your server if you need them.

You’ll be able to stream Real Audio files and configure your own MX records and VRML, Java, Perl, PHP4, TCL, Python, CGI, SSI, JavaScript are all supported. Several pre-installed CGI scripts come with this plan, and you’ll also get three free shopping carts, which is a nice feature for ecommerce site owners. The server is capable of supporting SSL, but TRK doesn’t mention if a free shared certificate is offered. If you need an SSL certificate, you may want to check with their sales department ahead of time.

Support is provided 24/7 free of charge and toll-free phone support is provided. If you prefer, you can also email their support department for assistance. The advertised set-up time for this plan is advertised at under 1 hour and several other features are available, such as password protected directories, SSI support and more. This is a solidly priced plan with great tech support options and one that is certainly worth a try.
