Incredibly cheap web hosting at only $0.99/mo with a pre payed 1 year billing cycle. Great if you are just starting out and only need to host 1 website. The price after the initial year will be $7.99/mo. If you rather want monthly billing the price for this plan is $8.99/mo.

FREE domain & whois privacy

You can get a free .com domain for the first year if you select a 1 year pre payed billing cycle. After that it is $14.99/year + a small ICANN fee. Check our domain guide to compare prices with other registrars. This plan also comes with FREE Whois Privacy which is a feature that 1&1 offers for all their registered domains. The SSL Certificate is delivered by Symantec and is included with every 1&1 hosting plan. The shared plans from 1&1 have a Resource Scaling feature which you can use to scale up and down your RAM. 5 levels are available.

Website builder

The optional Website Builder you can get with this plan is the 1&1 MyWebsite Personal and costs $6.99/mo.

Conclusion

This is currently the cheapest plan we have listed on this site, and that is great. For getting started and hosting one website for a year this plan could be decent. An included domain name for the first year and even whois privacy are big pros which equates to about $15 in savings.

The typical cloud hosting feature of resource scaling is great and also rare to find among the cheapest shared web hosting plans.

But this plan has some drawbacks

The website builder is not included which I am sure will disappoint a lot of beginner webmasters. Instead it has a hefty monthly price. Also once the first year of hosting is finished the price will about 8x making the value proposal entirely different. The lack of SSD storage like most other hosts have upgraded to will make your hosted sites slower.

Also, the limitation of hosting only 1 website and the money back guarantee that 1&1 offer is one of the shortest in the industry.

Maybe the biggest drawback and I believe it should be a deal breaker for most is the low amount of RAM of only 1.25 GB. Most websites will struggle with that low amount of ram. In comparison the cheap iPage Go plan has about 4GB of RAM for each account on their cheap shared plans.

Conclusion

Close to twice the price for the initial period than that of the 1&1 Unlimited Plus plan but only 50% more resources. That’s why that plan scores better than this one. However, after the initial period the value will be similar between the two plans.

Monthly billing

The 1&1 managed cloud plans are only available with monthly billing, so no fancy pricing schemes here!

Resource scaling, FREE domain and FREE SSL

Scale resources for your cloud plan up and down when needed, with by-the-minute billing. Scale from / to: 1 - 16 CPU vCores, 0.5 - 128 GB RAM and from 20 - 500 GB of SSD storage. Note though that it is not possible to scale SSD storage down.

If you rather want root access instead of "managed" hosting you can slice $5 off the monthly price. You can select your stack and choose between Apache or Nginx + MySQL or MariaDB + PHP.

Free domain and whois privacy

You can get a free .com domain for the first year, then it is $14.99/year + a small ICANN fee. This plan also comes with FREE Whois Privacy, nice. The SSL Certificate is delivered by Symantec and is included with every 1&1 hosting plan.

Data center locations

You can choose between 3 data center locations. One in the USA and two in the EU (Germany and Spain)

To get this price of $68.75/mo you need to select annual billing cycles and pre pay for a year of hosting. Any shorter billing cycles and the price will be $75/mo.

The VPS plans from HostDime are rather pricey. They do come with pure SSD storage and cPanel included, as well as very high bandwidth. Each plan also comes with 2 dedicated IP addresses. Select managed or unmanaged and Linux or Windows. Note that if you choose to register a domain name though this host you will have to pay a high premium. Right now they charge $27.99/year for a .com. Remote backup storage is $10/mo for 25 GB, but you can get up to 300 GB for $100/mo. Enterprise DDos Protection starts at $75/mo.

HostDime is a web hosting company that specializes in VPS and dedicated server hosting, with data centers located in Florida, USA. It is super secure data center with a building inside a building that is manned at all times, even under the last hurricane. They also have interesting global locations available for their VPS plans. They allow adult content on their servers.

Conclusion

The VPS plans by HostDime are really expensive compared with the amount of resources that they offer in compariosn with other hosts. However they do have one positive and that is a huge bandwidth limit of close to 15 TB monthly.
