Host Monster is a Web Hosting Service for Webmasters, Web Publishers, Ecommerce and maintained by Hostmonster Inc.

Host Monster Summary

Host Monster is a hosting company that’s been around for more than a decade now, since 1996 to be exact. More than 10 years in the hosting business says a lot about their reliability and consistency in service delivery. They currently play host to more than 100,000 domains. Host Monster is also under the same ownership as BlueHost, which has a larger client base. This relationship adds to the company’s repute as one of the more reliable hosting companies around.

Host Monster Pricing

The pricing of Host Monster services is a little higher than the current standard pricing. Their promo rate of $5.95/month is still a dollar higher than standard prices of other hosting companies that offer unlimited hosting space and bandwidth. Without the promo, customers pay $6.95 a month. Customers might rethink signing up with the company, especially since other hosting companies already offer cPanel and their package of ‘unlimiteds’ at a lower rate. What Host Monster would have going for them is its name and years of service.

Host Monster Reliability

Host Monster boasts of top-of-the-line servers, located in well-maintained high-tech data centers. It is also an assurance that they are aligned with BlueHost.

Host Monster Review

Host Monster and BlueHost have strikingly similar services, which is expected from sister companies. In some ways, only the skin is different.

For the most part, the edge of Host Monster is its affiliation with the bigger hosting company. This means that they have, more or less, streamlined their services and customer support, considering the total client base and years of service. Customers can expect to get what they need, when they need it.

Like many good hosting companies, Host Monster offer cPanel administration control panels. This enables customers to have quick access to a slew of blogs, forums, CMS , and other software. cPanel is also very user-friendly. Administration is easy to figure out, even for first-timers.

If you've ever considered trying out Hostmonster, now is the time! They have a very low introductory offer at the moment - $4.95 gets you started. They used to charge a bit more, but have been losing out to customers who are more cost-conscious than quality-conscious. They've been around for a long time, and do know their stuff! Just looking at the site tells you that just about everything you will be getting is unlimited. I have not had many issues, but whenever I have a question, it is immediately answered.

Hostmonster is an excellent hosting service with reasonable pricing and great support. Their pricing is very good, starting at $6.95 per month. You can get hosting cheaper but not by much so the negligible price difference means nothing when you compare it to the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the company has been around for over a decade.

Their shared hosting allows for multiple domains on a single account and has cPanel which is super easy to use. Uptime is excellent and they give ample notice of maintenance. Two thumbs up!

Hostmonster has class A hosting service with great uptime and lots of features. I have had an account there for three years now and have only been down once. That was due to some sort of hardware crash and they had my sites back up and live within an hour. I've used other services before and had similar situations take days to fix. The best thing about Hostmonster, though, is that the support is terrific at answering questions and helping you to figure out things. I recommend them to everyone I know.
