Your inital billing cycle is greatly discounted. Both by a promo discount (first term discount) and a duration discount (based on how long you select your billing cycle to be). This means that you can get the best discount for choosing long billing cycles, up to 3 years. It also means that the price will be about the double after your inital cycle.

Plan features

Dedicated IP address is $4/mo. Domain registration is $14.95/year, which is pretty expensive. Domain whois protection is $9.95/year so I would suggest to register you domain at another registrar. Check our domain guide for tips. The AntiSpam is called Barracuda Spam Firewall and costs $3/mo for one domain. Bakcups starts at $1.99/mo for 5 GB of storage. The 30 most recent backups are kept and that means you can have a month worth of backups if you select to backup daily. Another nice feature with this plan is that you can add CPU power and 1 GB or ram for only $3/mo.

Data center location

Choose between USA south west (Arizona), USA north east (Michigan), or EU (Amsterdam), Asia (Singapore).

Conclusion

Unlimited websites and 2x more resources to accommodate more visitors to your sites then that of the cheapest A2 Hosting plan.

Access to several data center around the globe is a plus, and so is the included free website builder app and the wide range of accepted payment options. I don't like that priority support is $20/mo - I would like to have fast support included in the price without paying extra. However, it is a great way to save a lot of money by not choosing it. On their order page you will also find an option to add dedicated IP address. It says that it is recommended for SSL Certificates, but that is really not the case anymore. It was only the issue with some old browsers.

Top web host w/ many benefits

A great web hosting company with lots of amazing features that most other cheap web hosting companies can not match at the moment. You need to pay for 1 year of hosting to get the listed price. It is cheaper if you select 2 or 3 years.

Included features

FastComet will renew your domain name for free for as long as you are their customer. If you already have registered a domain name, fear not, they will also let you transfer an existing domain name to them and renew it for you. Daily backups is also included whis is great and saves a bit off the monthly bill.

You also get 1 free website migration for this hosting plan which is a service other hosts can charge up to $100 for.

Extra features

Whois privacy is $2.95/year which is way less than most other web hosts.

FREE trial hosting

This host has the best free trial web hosting offer I have come across so far. You can try this host for two weeks without even giving away your credit card details.

Easy upgrade or downgrade

If your website grows out of this web hosting plan you can easily upgrade to a more powerful one. That goes even if you have a long time left of your pre payed billing cycle. Yor bill for the upgrade would deduct the period left of your current billing cycle. You can upgrade to a more powerful shared plan or a VPS plan or even a dedicated server offered by FastComet. The support team will perform the entire upgrade or downgrade for you and there will be minimal downtime if any.

The price is there to stay

One of the best things about the shared web hosting plans by FastComet is that the price is not just a cheap introductory and limited time discount, in contrast with most other hosts. The price is actually the same cheap price that the hosting will renew at also, as long as you select to renew for the same duration. Of course though, like all companies, they might need to increase their prices once in a while due to inflation, etc.

24/7 live chat support

The live chat support can assist with most usual tech questions. For the most complicated questions and request you will need to post a ticket.

Data center locations

You can select between 8 different server locations! That is great, because having your web server as close to most of your visitors as possible provides good website loading time benefits.

This plan is estimated to be suitable for one website with about 25.000 monthly visitors or less.

Visit Hostinger More info

Pre pay for 1 year to get the listed discounted price, and a FREE domain name. You can get even more discounts if you select 2, 3 or 4 year billing cycles.

Hostinger features

SSL certificates for a one time fee of $9.99 each. One is included with the Business plan. You can also add FREE Let's Encrypt SSL. But that is a little bit of a complicated procedure, however they do have a guide for it at the Hostinger site. Daily backups is included with the Business plan and available for $1.29/mo for the other shared plans. This host accepts Bitcoin and several other cryptocurrencies.

Data center location

After purchasing a shared web hosting plan with Hostinger you can select if you want to use the data center in USA, EU, or in Asia.

Conclusion

Several data center around the globe is a plus, and so is the included website builder app and the wide range of accepted payment options.

Here you get lots of value for your money. You can get the price down really low if you pre pay for 4 years. The FREE domain is also adding to the value pack for this plan. Fast hosting with SSD storage. However if you have mission critical sites you might want to go with the Hostinger Business plan, or similar, for better support and 2x resources allocated for your sites.

Inital period discounted

The first billing cycle are on sale at 50% off and that is the price that we have listed here. Pre pay for up to 3 years to lock in that price for a long time. If you want to be billed monthly there is a set up fee for this hosting plan and you will only get the discount for the first month. Prices are excluding tax.

Fast web servers but expensive domains

All the shared web hosting plans by SiteGround comes with fast SSD storage, free SSL from Free Let's Encrypt and HTTP/2 enabled servers. As well as free Daily Backups and Unmetered Bandwidth. Registering a .com domain will currently cost you $15.95/year and Whois Privacy is $12/year. Check out our Domain Guide for cheaper domains and whois privacy. SG Site Scanner is a monitoring service that checks your website daily and notifies you if your website has been hacked or injected with malicious code so you can fix it ASAP, it costs $19.80/year.

Data center location

Select between 5 different data centers all with the same plan features and the same prices. The locations you can choose from are Chicago, Amsterdam, Singapore, London, Milano.

SiteGround informs that this plan is suitable for one website with up to ~25.000 monthly visits (~833 daily).

EU support team

The SiteGround support team is located in Bulgaria in the EU.

Conclusion

Siteground has some of the best speed tech for delivering lighting fast website hosting on shared servers. However, their plans renew at a pretty expensive prices after your inital period (about twice the price) and this lowers the score for these plans. Also, expensive domain names and whois privacy is a slight downside that is easily avoidable though by using another domain registrar.
