ClickHost is a web hosting company specializing in online backup, dedicated server and shared hosting services. They target the budget conscious users who are looking for unlimited space and bandwidth hosting.

The Hosting Package

Their most affordable package starts at $4.95 per month for a year, which covers unlimited pages with unlimited disk space with free set up. But their most popular package is aptly named the Better Hosting plan, which covers a free domain (for the length of your hosting plan), unlimited disk space, bandwidth and email accounts plus a cPanel Control Panel. All of these are available for $7.95 per month for a year.

What’s Great About ClickHost?

    • Easy domain and database transfer (for free!)

ClickHost provides free domain and database transfer. This makes it so much easier if you are coming from a disgruntled experience from another hosting provider. Not only does ClicHost do that fast, they do it for free!

    • Tools available for script and file transfers

If you are not a web expert in terms of file transfers and hosting installations, then you will be pleased to know that there are lots of free tools available for your use when you sign up with ClickHost. This makes installation so much easier and the headache of setting up you FTP sites will be a thing of the past.

    • Awarded as one of the top hosting companies by users themselves

ClickHost boasts of several user-given awards from three different award-giving bodies, tagging them as the preferred hosting solutions provider. This is probably because they are very helpful during set up and installation, plus their performance is not that bad.

    • Provides online backup

Online backup is a very nice thing to have especially if you want to safeguard your data against unexpected down times and service interruptions. This is also very useful if you are in the middle of transferring your files. ClickHost provides this extra service to all of its subscribers so you can better sleep at night knowing that your files are automatically backed up.

    • Money back guarantee

30-day money back guarantee. It’s as simple as that.

What’s Disappointing About ClickHost?

&#10006 Expensive price tag

There are not much negative things to be said about ClickHost except for the fact that they are a tad too expensive. They are several dollars more expensive than their closest competitors, which can amount to a lot of money especially if computed on a yearly basis.

&#10006 No support for Windows

ClickHost is an all Unix deployment so if you are using Windows, it’s either you find another host provider or you switch to Linux sometime soon.

The Bottom line

Overall, ClickHost is a very good choice to consider since they offer a stable service with a lot of tools to help you get off the ground. The price should be a minor set back especially since you know you will be getting every penny’s worth. The several dollars on top of the regular hosting packages offered by other companies should be negligible compared to the peace of mind ClickHost can give you.
