Review on Cheap Domain Name and Hosting

Cheaper-Domain is one of the most prevalent and well-known global providers of all things websites. From domain registration to site design and web hosting, Cheaper-Domain offers virtually everything you need to build a site from scratch and turn it into a profitable, traffic-generating entity. While competitors may offer slick features Cheaper-Domain lacks, most competing services lack the exposure to compete with Cheaper-Domain in terms of prevalence. Fortunately, this website hosting service lives up to the hype. Cheaper-Domain offers a variety of website hosting features, different packages and countless additional options, making them a flexible option for hosting a personal or small business website.

Hosting Package:
Cheaper-Domain doesn't offer much in terms of storage space and monthly bandwidth with their entry-level Economy Plan. Most small business websites arent likely to outgrow its 10GB storage space and 300GB monthly bandwidth limits. However, those numbers don't leave much room for ambitious pursuits. You have to purchase at least three months of this plan right out of the gate, which is about the time it takes for a site to expand beyond the limitations this plan imposes on it. When you attempt to upgrade your options, you have the choice of the Deluxe or Unlimited plans. The Deluxe Plan offers much more as far as features go, but there are still limits when it comes to storage space and monthly bandwidth. While users with smaller websites might not have any use for features that don't have any limits, we still regard them as highly advantageous.

If you are worried about garnering site traffic that far exceeds what the bandwidth limit can sustain potentially causing your site to crash you should consider Cheaper-Domains unlimited plan, which offers unlimited disk space and monthly bandwidth for an extra $14.99 per month. However, be aware that there are three included features that do have limits under this plan: FTP accounts, number of email addresses and total email storage. While the unlimited plan has plenty of appealing features, its steep price tag (especially compared to other website hosting packages) may not make it the best fit for beginning website entrepreneurs.

Ease of Use:
You will find that the services Cheaper-Domain has to offer are easy to use, but they can require patience at times. For instance, expect long waiting times for requests (such as installing applications or setting up databases) made on your hosting account. Many users might have an issue with this because there can be a lag when it comes to uploading fresh, new content on your site. While perhaps frustrating, its understandable that Cheaper-Domains servers can become overloaded given the website hosting services overwhelming popularity.

Help & Support:
This web hosting service has a wide range of useful help and support options available, which are accessible at any hour of any day. Their online live support, forums and FAQs section contain a wealth of knowledge for beginners and advanced users alike.

You can also contact Cheaper-Domains customer service representatives on the phone, via email or live support. However, Cheaper-Domains support team is quick to respond, and the expected response time for emails is typically within 24 hours.

Site Creation Tools:
Cheaper-Domain helps beginners easily set up their site and offers additional site creation tools for advanced developers. In addition to easy-to-use site builders, the website hosting service also offers a variety of professional design services and prefab templates for additional fees. All of Cheaper-Domains solutions support several programming languages including CGI (Python and Ruby), PHP, Perl, ASP, MySQL, ColdFusion and FrontPage extensions.

Server Access:
Cheaper-Domain has a limit when it comes to how many different FTP accounts you can have. Even if you were to purchase the Unlimited Plan, you would still have to deal with the fact you can only have 50 different users with FTP accounts. While it may sound limiting, we imagine most users (think small to mid-size businesses) aren't going to exceed that number anyway. With the exception of unlimited FTP accounts, Cheaper-Domain delivers every other server feature we sought including anonymous FTP, SSH, Cron jobs and .htaccess support.

Marketing Tools:
Cheaper-Domain leaves most marketing tools out of its low-priced website hosting plans. It does offer them in a different section of the website, which took a little investigating for us to find. The website hosting services rates are reasonable, with the highest-level plan (Premium) costing about $2.77 per year. Users who want to market their site through email are going to have to expand their efforts on their own once they hit the limit of 5,000 emails per year. For an additional charge, the service also offers SEO tools and search engine submission.

Sorry to disapoint you, but where is YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE with this service?
The article looks like a common salespage. What is intertesting for me, is user's perspoective on a service, which is the only thing that really matters in a review, according to the dictionary definition of the term "review".

PS: Although all that's written in the article might be your insider's oppinion, it lacks credibility since we can evaluate ourselves exactly the same, WITHOUT subscribing and using the service. For instance:
-- how many SMTP fails may you encounter weekly?
-- how many "Error 404 - page not found" may you encounter weekly, due to traffic overload?
-- how many roll-backs to previous versions of the site = update losses, may you encounter weekly, due to automatic restores of your site, caused by scheduled server maintainance procedures?
It happens that I already used 5 hosting services so I know from my own experience what a hosting should provide in a certain range of prices, starting from FREE hosting up to $11/MO
...And so on, and so on...

Hi Serban,so far I did not encounter the error you mention

Thanks for this detail, but there are many other aspects you might discuss here, for the benefit of the community!
The price is fair, according to the [advertised!] offered features. But how does it work? What is the amount of traffic load it supports? Just a theoretical bandwidth, means noting. It's a figure on a [virtual] paper. How works the site at 200, 500, 1000 unique visitors/day?
I had a bad surprise to have weekly crashes due to traffic. And it was around an average of 900 uniques. On a paid hosting, this is outrageous! It shouls go smooth up to at least 5000 uniques! So, what is important in a hosting review, is HOW IT WORKS. What they offer on the salespage, means simply spoken. "bla-bla-bla". Everybody can buy a reseller package and claim 99.99% uptime, bandwidth, storage, etc. But it is something different to obtain results at the level of your claims!
Since there are so few people that really know what webmastering IS, they should be more specific and detailed on the services they write about.
