Gooday! As written on the title, I was doing some shopping the other day for a good hosting site on the Internet. After surveying around, I have found WebsitePalace.com and 1and1.com to be the most competitive hosting service on the Internet.

Key factors that I have taken into considerations are

1. Disk space
2. Monthly transfer rate
3. Types of service offered
4. Cheapest found in the Internet
5. Free domain

Alright, I will be reviewing WebsitePalace.com first and then to 1and1.com.

WebsitePalace.com

At first glance, WebsitePalace.com might not be the cheapest paid hosting found in the Internet. Compared to 1and1.com, WebsitePalace.com charges $3.99 per month for a Linux hosting. However, the advantages of WebsitePalace.com are it offers huge selection of services in their hosting plans. The distinctive services offered on WebsitePalace.com encompass blog services (Wordpress or Quickblog), email services, database services, website building/editor (Mambo, Postnuke), image sharing (4 images, Coppermine Photo Gallery) as well as a forum. These services are among the few that are being offered on the hosting server - chech their website for a complete list of services.

What surprise me was WebsitePalace.com also offers acceptable amount of disk space (5GB) and a monthly transfer rate of 250GB. Also registering a domain only costs $1.99, which is very low compared to other web hosting company is charging.

1and1.com

Next up the line is 1and1.com. 1and1.com offers one of the most competitive hosting services found on the net. Not only it is cheaper than WebsitePalace.com (only $2.99 per month) The types of free application offered together with the hosting service is abundant. The key applications being offered on this hosting site are 1&1 WebsiteBuilder, 1&1 Blog and 1&1 Photo Gallery.

The thing that caught my attention was appart from being $1 cheaper compared to WebsitePalace.com, they were giving out 1 FREE DOMAIN together with the hosting package.

However, I was not comfortable with the duration of the contract. To be eligible for the $2.99 hosting package, you will need to pay for 6 months of service - one time. Furthermore, this service was not made available in other parts of the world except in US and Canada only. Click the banner below to see their hosting package.

Trusted by over 5 million customers!


Conclusion

As the conclusion, I have chosen WebsitePalace.com to host my website - DotMySpot.com. Not only they have Wordpress (which was installed pretty easily), the other free applications being offered was also fantastic. Earlier on, I wanted to register on 1and1.com for the hosting - because of the free domain offer and is $1 cheaper. After completing their forms (I tried to put a fake US address), eventually I found out that I could not cheat the credit card charging system - they took the address I filled in earlier.

As the result, I settled with WebsitePalace.com and I have no regrets ever since. The whole package for 2 months amounted to $10.74 which in my opinion was quite affordable. Not to mention the domain only costs $1.99 for A YEAR!

If you are looking for a paid hosting to host your site, you might want to take a look at WebsitePalace.com! - associated with 2createawebsite.com
