When I was looking for company to host my website www.blingandaroma.com, I researched quite a few of the popular web hosts before deciding to go with HostMonster. I liked the idea of having the option to add more domains in the future if I so desired, plus the unlimited bandwith and the 24/7 support they offered to their subscribers.
The cost for my original domain was free and the sign up process was quite painless, so after they finalized my intial payment, I was able to upload my website files using the C-Panel controls and my site was live within 24 hours. I have a web design background so I had previously made my own website to upload, but for those of you without any background, HostMonster has an option to have a site built to your specifications.
When it came time to set up my personal options, such as automatic renewal and payment plan; using the C-Panel control page made that process smooth too.
I was able to add a shopping cart to my website using one of HostMonster’s Simplescript programs, which was made easier using their set-up wizard.
After my site was up and running, I was having some trouble with my shopping cart and needed to use their tech support hotline. The response time was fast, though I did end up having to talk to a couple folks, they were able to get me back up and running in a short amount of time.
All in all, I would give HostMonster a rating of 4 out of 5 and just to let you know, I have since added 2 more domains to my account with them.
