I purchased an initial hosting package from HostMonster in a promotional offer a number of years ago. Since then, I’ve never had cause to look for better hosting elsewhere. Although there have been times when my sites have been down, it’s a fairly rare occurrence. When it does happen, it is brief.
The control panel layout is intuitive, if a bit sluggish at times. Creating a website is possible with just a few clicks of the mouse, a very important consideration for me because I don’t have enough HTML knowledge to create one from scratch. Popular scripts, such as WordPress, Weebly and Joomla are available.
Support for multiple email addresses is available as well as unlimited File Transfer Protocol. There is a Web based client for managing both of these, but I don’t recommend using it; it isn’t as reliable as other software. Setting up your own software is easy with the auto-configuration utility provided.
HostMonster’s customer service has always been outstanding. At one point, my account had been hacked into, and spammers had hijacked my email addresses. HostMonster immediately froze my account and notified me by email. When I phoned customer support, the representative was very helpful and friendly. I was able to change my passwords and get my account back online in a matter of hours.
I would highly recommend HostMonster to anyone looking for a hosting package. It offers convenient hosting at an affordable price.
