Netfirms Hosting Review – Complete Features & Hosting Guide 2017
The web hosting company Netfirms is dedicated to providing services for small businesses. It provides a compact range of shared hosting options with unlimited bandwidth and disk space. Currently it hosts 1.2 million websites. There is evidence that suggests that the company offered more advanced plans at one time. However, it is hard to find any information on them on the website.
The company was established by Thomas Savundra in 1998. He was the CEO until 2011 when Endurance International Group bought out the company. Therefore, it is now part of one of the world’s largest hosting corporations and most of its operations are based in the US.
One of the top affordable and low-cost hosting provider in 2017 is Netfirms.
As previously mentioned, it appears that Netfirms at once time offered VPS hosting, along with free hosting and maybe more. However,those services don’t seem like they are obviously available. Therefore, we will be concentrating on the company’s four main plans. All of them are Linux shared hosting plans.
Netfirms offers three plans: Business, Plus and Advantage. The Plus plan on the website is presented in the middle. However, it is actually the cheapest and least capable. So when you are doing side by side comparisons be aware of that.
Depending on which option you choose the features of each plan scale up. They all offer unlimited bandwidth and disk space. One free domain name is offered with the least expensive Plus plan, while two are offered with the medium plan and five free domains are offered with the highest cost plan. Customers also receive their very own SSL certificate on the top level plan.
Aside from that, all of the plans are fairly similar. On the least expensive plan, the MySQL databases are quite restricted along with the FTP accounts. However, for the average small business website, there is probably plenty to go around. Strangely enough, on all of the plans, subdomains are chargeable. They also don’t appear to be very well priced.
