World Space Media

World Space Media offers several different hosting services, ranging from domain name registration, SSL certificates and hosting packages. Currently, if you purchase a hosting package from this company, you can register your domain for just $3.99, which is a pretty decent deal. Let’s take a look at their Deluxe Plan to see what it has to offer. You’ll be able to select either a Windows-based or Unix-based platform for this plan. The Unix version is $16.99 and the Windows version is $19.99 per month. For this review, we’ll focus on the Windows-based platform.

For $19.99 per month, this plan provides 10 gigs of disk space and 500 gigs of monthly data transfer, which is very generous given the price. If you need even more space, the next plan up is currently priced the same and offers 20 gigs of disk space and 1000 gigs of monthly data transfer. There are several free bonuses included with this plan, but they differ based on the platform you select. For the Windows plan, you’ll get the following scripts free: ASPCrypt, GUIDMaker, TimeTracker Starter Kit, ASPJpg 1.4, ASPUpload, WSE, Microsoft IE Web Controls and a DotNetNuke portal. In addition to these scripts, you’ll also get extra applications for blogging, content management and more.

25 MySQL databases are included with this plan and for the Windows plan, you’ll also get an MS Access database and SQL Server 2000. For email, you’ll get 1000 accounts and unlimited forwarders. ASP and ASP.NET 1.1 and 2.0 are supported, while Linux users get PHP, Python and Java support. For an additional $1.95 per month, you can add-on support for Cold Fusion MX7, but there is a three month minimum purchase requirement. It’s nice to see this as an add-on for a hosting plan in this price range. There are several other well priced add-ons available, including a dedicated IP address and much more.

Support options include 24/7 phone support, but the number is not toll-free. In addition, there is also a help center that contains numerous self-help topics that answer most questions. Their FAQ is well done and should be useful even to newcomers.

Overall, this plan is very well priced, and offers some features that are hard to find with other hosting companies.
