What’s Great About Datarealm?

    • Unlimited packages available

The unlimited packages remove the burden of having to monitor your own data consumption. It is the next most commonly asked question by web developers, after knowing the price of the package. Unlimited packages are still very much wanted even if sometimes these packages are blamed for the sluggish movement in the network.

    • Informative website

This portion of the web service is often taken for granted but without a useful website jam packed with relevant information, then a hosting service will not fly. In their website you can easily spot the promos that they have and the types of packages that you can avail of. The perks are also listed on the home page as well as some snippets of testimonials.

    • Reasonable Rates

Their rates are one of the friendliest in the market, with very encouraging fees for those who are just starting. Even their VPS and dedicated server packages are reasonably priced, which makes you think that you cannot get a deal better than this, without it coming off as too cheap to become suspicious.

What’s Disappointing About Datarealm?

&#10006 Deteriorating performance

It is sad that they have seen better days and are really just deteriorating, plainly speaking. It would be great if they can get back to their glory days and remain consistent in terms of service and performance.

&#10006 Slow customer support response

They can improve much on the training of their customer support staff, not just in speed of the responses but in the quality of their knowledge, as well. Not all start up companies are newbies in the web industry. Some may be working on web sites for several years and took only now to launch their very own service. So the customer support team must be ready for all sorts of customers if they really want to succeed.

The Bottom Line

It may pay to look for a younger team who is consistent. They seem to be a tired bunch although their packages are still quite good compared to the others.
