Lunarpages Review – We Do Not Recommend Lunarpages
Lunarpages is the very first web hosting that I know since my day one in the internet. I myself personally have 4 ongoing websites hosted with them for 4 years. These long period have told me basically everything about the host from their uptime performance to their support team. Trust me, Lunarpages is a good host.
However, what is saddening is that Lunarpages has recently lost up in the marketing war and many new hosts have popped up from nowhere to compete with them. Being one of the oldest hosts available in the internet Lunarpages has grown aggressive. They have not only lowered their price they have also refined their hosting features. After all Lunarpages is a giant that will not be easily defeated.
What can you expect from Lunarpages features?
So with the unlimited website, storage and domain names, we can have as many website as possible, and best of it, under just 1 hosting account. This is the true meaning about unlimited features.
Software: Free $775 worth of Software
In another hand, Lunarpages hosting has Fantastico embedded. That means with that you are given access to 50++ free website scripting and software too. The scripts includes of blogs like WordPress, content management system like Joomla, shopping cart like CubeCart and Zen Cart, discussions board like SMF and etc. Long words short, Lunarpages has more than enough resources to back you up for your website building.
Their support includes of live chat, telephone support, email support, ticketing system, forums, Lunarpages wiki, online tutorials and etc. However the amount of support medium is not that important here. This is because the efficiency of the support is the only concern. Well, with my years of experiences with them, they do have a good record. They have fast responses and best of it effective responses. Often time issues are solved within a few emails which takes around 12 hours. Bravo!
Pricing: Cheap Web Hosting
Conclusion: Is Lunarpages Recommended?
I myself am still hosting with them without any problems. I am the role model of Lunarpages hosting. So I do recommend Lunarpages. However, if you were to ask which to choose between Hostgator and Lunarpages, I will ask you to go for Hostgator if you are on business and go for Lunarpages if you are slightly under budget. Please do not get sensitive here that which hosting outranks which hosting, both the web hosts are great host but due to their pricing and different attributions (Hostgator is more expensive and more to business hosting; Lunarpages is much cheaper and more to personal hosting) I have to make such suggestions. Anyhow I encourage you to try checking out yourself at Lunarpages and justify my words.
Sorry pal, I quitted hosting with Lunarpages some time ago. Learn why Lunarpage sucks. I seriously think Lunarpages does not worth your money anymore. If you are looking for a similar host with shared hosting with option to expand, check out our current #1 hosting – SiteGround, or my current host Inmotion Hosting.
