HostRocket Web Hosting Review
The $11.98 monthly fee for the base package of HostRocket might seem a little expensive, but the company currently runs an anniversary promotion: $5.99 for the same package, starting with the 7th month. With all those facilities and promotions, simple calculations tell us that you will only need to pay 36 dollars for a nice package in the first year.
I have decided to take advantage of this promotion 3 months now. This is why I think I am entitled to give you this review. Let’s see the main features of the base package of HostRocket.
|Money Back Guarantee||Yes|
|Storage Space and Bandwidth||Unlimited|
|Audio and Video features||Yes|
|PHP 5, MySQL||Yes|
The Reseller Hosting is one of the greatest advantages of HostRocket. I think 34.95 a month for a package of this kind is a reasonable offer, and you will definitely have profits with this service. The cPanel of the HostRocket for reseller hosting looks great, it is intuitive, and it offers some great features like statistics, error logs with solutions to solve them, and the possibility to setup and modify the accounts of your clients.
I haven’t had the chance to test the dedicated server feature, but I have studied it in the latest month. My webpage is growing, and I will surely need it in the future. I think I won’t make a mistake by choosing them, and the package looks a lot better for the money they are asking: 94.99 dollars a month is a reasonable fee for a dedicated server. This package has 80 GB Storage space, 512 MB RAM, and an Athlon processor of 2.1 GHz.
Well, HostRocket can’t offer cloud hosting solutions directly, but you will have the possibility to take this service from one of their partners. Personally, I don’t like those companies that don’t offer complete features. On the other hand, HostRocket managed to impress me with the basic services; therefore, I think I will try their partner’s solutions.
HostRocket gives you a complete web designing solution with a library and customization. I must admit I haven’t tried it, and the price of 350 $ might be a little higher. My sites usually cost me 500 dollars with optimization and SEO work. Now, if 350 $ include those works, it is a great offer. If it is only a designing service, I must advise you to look for another solution. On the other hand, you could take the 1000 dollars package that gives you a professional webpage.
HostRocket is an average service for beginners. They are not claiming to give top-notch features, but they will give you what you are expecting. An average company with average service with the main advantage of a small price. For a beginner webmaster, HostRocket offers you what you need, but you will surely need to take another hosting company once your company grows.
