CoolHandle Expert Review- From the Editors

700 w. 6th Street
Los Angeles, CA 90001

CoolHandle is a California based web hosting company that was started by a group of IT professionals in 2001 that were intent on delivering 100% satisfaction to customers.  Today, CoolHandle offer Windows and Linux based web hosting, virtual private servers and dedicated servers, and operates from a datacenter in Los Angeles, CA, where they handle more than 100,000 domains daily.



I was most interested in a shared web hosting account with CoolHandle, but had a few questions I needed to clear up before signing on as a customer.  CoolHandle does sales support by live chat, telephone and email.  I turned to live chat, where I was able to connect with Mark, sales representative for CoolHandle, in less than five minutes. Mark answered my questions promptly and gave me a little background on CoolHandle.  Top notch, friendly sales!


My shared hosting account was paid for by credit card and within moments I had a welcome letter from CoolHandle in my email inbox.  The welcome letter was thorough and well written, and detailed all my hosting account details.  Setup with CoolHandle is simple and to the point.


I was billed monthly for my CoolHandle web hosting plan and was never charged for services and features I had not ordered. Account cancellation was an equally pain-free process that incurred no unexpected charges.


CoolHandle’s shared hosting accounts begin at $4.95/month for unlimited space and bandwidth.  The smallest (Starter Package) account allows for five add-on domains and pricier plans include options for more domains and dedicated IPs.  CoolHandle’s prices are rock bottom, but the one thing that keeps me from giving CoolHandle a perfect score here is the fact that they charge a setup fee for customers not paying at least one year in advance.


When it came to reliability, CoolHandle’s servers were exceptional. During a one year stay I never experienced any hardware or network issues of any kind. CoolHandle is deserving of a perfect rating here!

Help & Support

I made contact with CoolHandle on multiple occasions—each time to inquire about new services that had piqued my curiosity. CoolHandle gives out customer support by email, a toll free telephone number and live chat. CoolHandle’s representatives are friendly, courteous and really know their stuff. Average wait time for support is less than one hour by email and roughly five minutes by live chat and telephone.


I track my domains with a premium uptime monitor. During a 12 month stay with CoolHandle I never experienced any downtime and my site always loaded quickly.
