WingSix Hosting

Wing Six Hosting is a highly acclaimed hosting company that offers several different hosting packages. Pretty much everything from entry level budget hosting to stellar VPS solutions are offered, and at reasonable prices. Let’s take a look at their First Class Plan and see what it has to offer.

The monthly fee is currently $6.95 for the annual payment option and this plan provides you with 1 gig of disk space and 20 gigs of monthly data transfer. That is a sizable amount given the monthly fee and should be enough for small business sites, ecommerce solutions and personal sites. If you prefer to pay quarterly, the price goes up to $8.95. The set-up fee is currently being waived, which is nice to see. Unlimited POP3 email addresses are included, as well as the standard unlimited autoresponders, forwarders and aliases.

You’ll also be able to host an unlimited amount of subdomains and MySQL databases are offered, but unfortunately, Wing Six does not state how many come with this plan. It would be a good idea to check with their sales department beforehand to see what these limits are. Support is provided for PHP, Perl, Python and JavaScript, as well as FrontPage extensions and SSI. SSL certificates are also supported, but again, there is no mention if a free shared certificate is available with this plan.

An online control panel is provided, as well as web-based site statistics, the ability to password protect your directories and management for Cron jobs. Support is provided via an online ticket system, through email and by toll-free telephone from 8am to 7pm Central. In addition, several tutorials are also supplied in their support area.

Overall, this is a solid budget plan that carries just enough features to make it worth the money. We would have liked to have seen a little more information about this plan, but the inclusion of toll-free telephone support and the other features make this plan worth while.
