Register.com Web Hosting review
Sign up for service.
Register.com is popular by virtue of its name but unfortunately the limits it puts on accounts and its price point don’t make the best option.
While there is nothing outstanding with the Register.com options and plans, what you get is more than adequate to design and maintain personal web sites. Because of the storage limits imposed by Register.com, this is not the best option for business sites.
To set itself apart from its competitors, Register.com does offer virus scan software and automated backups. In addition Register.com guarantees 100% uptime.
Key features of Register.com
This web hosting service plan company offers the following:
Free virus scan software
Free automated site backups
Sitebuilding options with Viastep and SoHo Launch
The first month comes at a bargain price at $4.95/month but after that the price rises to $11.95 for the subsequent 12 months. To keep your payments more reasonable, commit to a three-year plan for $8.95/month. Domain privacy costs $11.00/year but domain registration is free for life.
While the peace-of-mind features (virus scan and automated backup) are really nice to have, these do not outshine the high price combined with limited options. With a cap on data storage and with only one MySQL database included, this is not the choice for business users. For individuals though, this could be a reasonable option – but pay attention to the price.
