Advantages: NOTHING
Disadvantages: No support, very slow
Verdict: This host is the worst host I have tried. my website were down for more than four days. And if you try to contact them via chat the immediately suspend your account. I was so surprised the speed that they suspend you and if you ask for your site you won't give a response after that They aren't serious

Pirates, website hijacked

Rating:

Reliability
Advantages: Nothing
Disadvantages: Everything
Verdict: Three weeks after activating my free service, they suspended it without prior notification. After asking about it, they said my website (a Wordpress private blog) was consuming too much memory. To get this information I had to send a lot of mails because they just said I had overused the server resources and didn't gave me more information. They only wanted to for me to get a paid account. They hijacked my website, so I never could get back all the information in it. They are pirates, once they get you site, they make it fail and ask for money if you want it back. About the service, when it worked, performance was poor and there were frequent drops in the service, so it's a hosting I would not recommend at all.

Review

Sales

In need of a shared web hosting account, I turned to Host-ed to learn more about their offerings. Host-ed takes sales questions via email, telephone and live chat. I plugged into live chat and was immediately greeted by a friendly sales team member who gave me all the information I needed to feel confident in choosing Host-ed as my next web hosting company. Perfect!

Setup

I paid for my shared web hosting account online with PayPal and my account was instantly activated. Within moments of signing up, I had a welcome email in my inbox that detailed my purchase and laid out the terms of my hosting plan, as well as gave me all the information needed to get my domain online. Again, perfect!

Billing

Host-ed offers several different billing solutions, ranging from paying a set fee every three months to paying as long as three years in advance. I chose to pay bi-annually and was billed correctly, never being charged for services I had not ordered. I was also able to cancel my Host-ed web hosting account without any difficulty.

Pricing

Host-ed offers three shared hosting plans, including a free option, personal plan and business class hosting.  Host-ed’s personal plan comes with 120 gigabytes of space and 2,000 gigabtytes of bandwidth, which makes Host-ed a price leader in the industry. 

It’s worth noting that Host-ed’s free hosting gives users a generous 200 megabytes of space and 5 gigabytes of ad-free bandwidth per month—by far one of the best free hosting plans online.

Reliability

I was pleasantly surprised to find Host-ed extremely reliable. There were no issues to speak of during my stay with Host-ed; the server hardware functioned as it should and my website was never offline.

Help & Support

I had occasion to contact Host-ed’s support department twice; once to correct an error I’d made with a database and once to inquire about their affiliate program. Host-ed gives support by email, telephone and an online forum. While I found the email and telephone support to be superb—with operators able to address and answer my question within 10 minutes—the link to Host-ed’s forum support on their website did not function properly and there is no live chat support available at all. As for the actual support I did receive, it was top notch. The average wait time for an email answer is under five minutes and it takes approximately 5-10 minutes to connect with telephone support personnel.

Uptime

I use a premium service uptime monitoring tool and did not experience any downtime during my stay with Host-ed. Additionally, my website always loaded as quickly as I expected and there wasn’t even a minor hiccup in service to report. Excellent!
