HostMetro Editor's Review

HostMetro Company Overview

Promoting a special of $2.45 a month, you can't find many hosts that provide hosting at a cheaper rate than HostMetro. No downtime, and no drama is something they promote; this means you don't have to worry about your site going down or slow load times for your customers. With a few package options, you can also find a hosting plan that is ideal for your business, at a price you can't pass up on.

Price Value

If you get the current promotional deal, then HostMetro is truly a great option for your hosting needs. Free domains, max bandwidth and disk space, free ssl and seo packages ,and more. You also receive an advertising bonus, which is great, so you can gain more recognition through the top search engines. For a low price point, you are going to get the same as you will with other big hosting companies, but you are dealing with a smaller host, so won't deal with downtime or other site issues as often.

Reliability and Performance

They do guarantee 100% uptime, but this is not the case with any host. However, they are far more reliable than other companies, in the sense that they have dedicated servers in place, so your site won't go down as often, or for as long as with other hosts. Also, the 100 % money back guarantee means if you aren't happy, you don't have to stay locked down with them in a contract.

Features and Control Panel

The HostMetro team touts itself as the best c panel host. Not only is c panel the easiest control panel to use, with simple app design, and drag and drop development, you can also check site stats, on the home page of your control panel. In terms of features, you are going to receive max bandwidth and disk space, you also receive unlimited domains, ssl security, php, and email accounts. Two site builders are included, no hassle transfer account, and you can easily build your site, following online guidelines and tutorials, which give you step by step guidance in building your page.

Support

The HostMetro is pretty good with support. In terms of calling in, you don't wait too long to speak to a tech support member; when you email, you can expect to wait a bit longer. They generally take a few hours, up to a day to answer to email tickets. With online tutorials, you can find step by step guides, as well as the answers to some questions which are most common from their customers online. And, online chat is also an option, which you can generally reach at any time of the day that you log in to your account.

Conclusion

With the current promotion, it would be a great deal for those who want a new online host. Not only do you get quite a few bonuses with the HostMetro package, you also are dealing with a reliable host, with several built in features you receive, for a low, flat price you are paying each month.

Since 2013, I have been a Hostmetro customer. I love everything they offer. Possibly the best feature of theirs is the control panel. It is the most manageable system I have ever worked with, through any online hosting site I have used. You literally do not need any experience with building a site, to figure out how to use the control panel. it easily allows you to make adjustments, to fix your page, and to do work on the content at any time you need to make changes.

As far as uptime, I believe in the time I have been with them that my site has gone down twice, maybe three times. And, it has only been down for a few minutes, one hour at the most. They are excellent and can troubleshoot an issue in no time.

When I needed support and needed help with site building they were also there for me. Their phone support is great. they answer calls within a few minutes of dialing, so you are not on hold all day long.

For their super low price, you can't really ask for much more in terms of quality services.

Being a Hostmetro customer since 2 years, what can I say? I am very happy and never had anything to complain about. Reliable infrastructure, no downtimes I would know about and fast support. The price is incredible, but it's true and the quality indeed is high.
