Hostwire Offers Choices to Satisfy Anyone

Hostwire offers three main types of web hosting plans: Shared, Business, and Ecommerce. On top of those options, they also offer Dedicated and Reseller hosting. All plans come with a free domain name; however, if you don’t choose to purchase any of their hosting plans, the domain name is $9 to register. Customers also have the option to transfer their domains. If you’re not completely satisfied with their services, they offer a 30 day money back guarantee. This way you can give them a shot without risking any of your hard-earned money.

Their three shared hosting plans are Startup Saver ($7.95), Pro Saver ($14.95), and Corporate Saver ($24.95). All 3 plans have: unlimited email accounts, Spam and virus scanner, SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Encryption, 24/7 Unlimited FTP access, and 24/7 Live Technical Support, among several others.

Founded in 2001 by 4FX media studios LLC, Hostwire built its reputation as a company that provided to their clients a knowledgeable team of experts that offered 24 hour support. The Hostwire.com philosophy is about providing unparalleled support at affordable prices, and with a guarantee of reliability for their customers.

Their Business plan runs $29.95 a month and offers all of the features of the Shared Plans plus 10GB of disk space and 100GB of file transfer capabilities.

If your business relies heavily on your web site to sell products, then Hostwire’s Ecommerce plans are the way to go. There are three Ecommerce plans to choose from; there’s a plan in there that will meet your business’ specific needs. The Ecommerce plans range in monthly fees from $49.95 to $69.95 with the greatest difference coming in the amount of disk space and data transfer capability. However, the Ecommerce III Plan comes with a one year SSL Certificate (which is normally a $119 value).

There are also three Dedicated Server Hosting plans to choose from as well. These are optimal for small or medium sized businesses that have outgrown their Shared plans and require dedicated servers. Their RedHat Linux servers are all guaranteed a 99.9% uptime. The Linux highlights include: full system administration, reliability of a Linus OS, complete Apache web server configuration, daily backup, server monitoring, firewall security, and full administration of your server via Webmin. The three Linux hosting plans range in price from $149 to $239.

If you’re interested in hosting several domains at a better value, then Hostwire’s Reseller Program would be of interest. The three plans range in price from $24.95 a month with 4,000MB of disk space and 50,000MB file transfer to $79.95 with 20,000MB disk space and 200,000MB file transfer a month. There is no setup fee involved and all three plans allow for unlimited domain names.

One feature under Customer Service that makes them stand out from others is the presence of several educational articles on several topics, such as choosing the right web hosting service for your needs, ways to secure your site, how to build a site yourself, and the types of web hosting available, to name a few. Also, their FAQ section covers a wide variety of issues from how to obtain a domain name to connecting via FTP and from Macromedia Flash and Shockwave to Email Autoresponders. In all, there are 148 questions answered in 22 different categories. Of course, if that does not answer all of your questions or resolve issues, you can call them at the 1-800 number that they provide.

Finally, Hostwire offers an affiliate program for customers to take advantage of as well. It offers the opportunity to make a solid residual income from getting the visitors to your websites to sign up with Hostwire as their web hosting service. It is a pay-per-sale system that pays you $20 for every sale that you generate. If you receive a high amount of volume on your site, this could be a lucrative program.
