|The Good:|| Unlimited Storage and Bandwidth: While some of the other web hosting companies out there would put a cap on these services, eHost gives you unlimited reserves of both. |
Easy-to-Use Site Builder: eHost ensures that even the most non tech-savvy of individuals get a chance to make their own digital pages by using a drag-and-drop site builder.
Free Marketing Credits: With eHost, you can boost your online presence via marketing strategies for your website like Google Ad Words and paid Yahoo/ Bing ads.
Superb Customer Support: eHost has a solid record for a stellar customer support experience, boasting 24/7 availability and a promise to answer all calls within 2 minutes.
| Great Uptime: You would expect a company like GoDaddy to have one of the best uptimes in the industry just giving the fact that they are so huge. But I have yet to hear a complaint about GoDaddy uptime. Uptime is one of those things you expect a web hosting company to deliver on and GoDaddy does that with style. |
Linux and Windows Hosting: GoDaddy is one of the rare few hosting providers who give you the option to go for Windows rather than the industry-standard Linux operating system. If you've got ASP.NET websites, this is the place for you.
Great Tech Support: Time and time again, web hosting companies get complaints about their customer service. Whether it is a lack of knowledge or huge wait times, but GoDaddy have pulled a rabbit out of their hat with this magic. They have the absolute best customer service.
User Friendly: Most of GoDaddy is built around the idea of the newer end customers. All of their tools are newbie friendly. Personally I love theircPanel which should be an industry standard at this point. Everything I need is right at my fingertips and I have absolutely no complaints about their UX.
|The Bad:||Shared Hosting Only: eHost only offers shared hosting service, meaning you share a server with other users and have little room for expansion once you outgrow your initial plan.|| Not a Great Value: Unless you catch GoDaddy on a great promotional deal, you're going to be a little upset at the prices you are paying. You just don't get the same level of performance with GoDaddy lower end service packages. But if you catch them in a promotion, winner winner chicken dinner. |
Online Store Lacks Features: For me, at this day and age, e-Commerce additions should be a no brainer. You should get all the bells and whistles because the web hosting company usually takes a chunk of your money anyways. For GoDaddy, they miss the boat with missing features and errors just attacking your store at every angle.
|Summary:||eHost offers low-cost web hosting solutions as a new company established in the market. Features are available such as free professional domain name with all hosting plans, 30 day money back guarantee, free email and website builder and more. Also possible is the hosting of unlimited domains through the control panel hosting account and even the creation of an e-commerce website.||Also available in this web-hosting service is great support along with 1-Click app installs and more. It is worth noting that it is easy to use domain name registration coupled with hosting. Users do not have to worry about their websites being mobile ready or choosing between Linux and Windows. Users can also access accounts on the Go Daddy mobile app with the websites themselves being tweaked to let users easily access account information.|
