Editors' Pick 2006:
AN Hosting offers big features and excellent support. Throw in 10 domains on 1 account and this company earns Hosting-Review.com's 2006 Editors' Pick award for their great value.
AN Hosting eschews the industry-standard 20-odd packages for their all-in-one, "everything-you-need" package. And the breadth of features - web design tools, email tools, online statistics tools, e-commerce tools, and more - that come free with this web hosting package makes AN Hosting - already a bargain at $6.95 for 250 GB disk space and 2500 GB data transfer - an even better value.
They stand behind their 99.9% uptime guarantee and their 99.9% network uptime guarantee. There is a glitch, however, with their 30-day money back guarantee, namely that it's not 100%. If you cancel, you forfeit the $21.95 domain name registration fee AN Hosting incurred when getting you your "free" domain name, though you will walk away owning your domain name. Reliability
AN Hosting has a high customer retention rate, undoubtedly thanks to their top-of-the-line equipment and an experienced team of administrators making sure those servers are always up. Their network operations center touts 2 OC-3s with double redundancy. They have little difficulty holding fast to the aforementioned 99.9% uptime and network uptime guarantees.
AN Hosting uses the Cpanel control panel, popular because of its clean, intuitive, icon-based interfaces and eminent usability. Cpanel incorporates a wide array of powerful and convenient features – including integral Backup and Restore functionality - with readily available Help info beside each tool to make learning to utilize them simple and painless. A collection of billing features help make account management easier too.
With their 24/7/365 toll-free telephone and live web chat support, AN Hosting invites you to contact them anytime at all, whether with pre-sales questions, for email and FTP assistance, technical issues, service status updates, or anything other web hosting question on your mind. This far surpasses the standard email query ticket system many web hosting companies rely on. That said, some users may be pleased to find that AN Hosting also offers support via email and postal mail are also available.
AN Hosting support team members have replied with outstanding courtesy, promptness, and relevant information to the few customer complaints we have heard.
