Hostmonster™ is one of the oldest hosts in the industry, being established back in 1996. They offer unlimited web hosting and many other great features.

Whether or not they are one of the best is something that’s yet to be found out, but by the end of this review you will know.

In our Hostmonster review, we tested their hosting for value, features, performance, reliability, customer support and overall experience using their service.

Do I Get A Good Value?

Running at $5.95 per month, they aren’t one of the most affordable hosts in the industry. In fact, they offer just about the same features as other hosts, but just charge a slightly higher price.

Is it a good value? Well, it’s not a bad deal by any means, and they are one of the more reputable hosts making it a justified expense.


I can hear you asking what kind of features you can expect with this company. So, here they are. 🙂

  • Unlimited Storage Space
  • Unlimited Bandwidth
  • Free Domain for Life
  • Free Website Builder
  • Unlimited Email Accounts
  • Free Shopping Cart
  • $50 Google Adwords Voucher for FREE
  • Many more features available…

Their feature-set is good, but I’ve honestly seen better features with some of the competing hosts that I reviewed here at Web Hosting Billboard.

Performance Test Results

Hostmonster™ provides their clients with high-end servers. You’ll find that they use QUAD CORE processing (research link) for each server that they utilize. Of course, some will say that Hostmonster™ doesn’t offer very good performance, but the positives outweigh the negatives in this case.

With that said, the performance that Hostmonster™ offers is actually the performance that you’ll only find with the most reputable hosts in the industry.

Is Hostmonster™ Reliable?

This company offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Also, many of their customers have submitted positive stories about how much they can trust Hostmonster™ as their host due to their great level of reliability.

Uptime Data: 99.74% Uptime Based on 220,693 checks since Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Is Their Support Friendly And Helpful?

They offer support for their clients 24 hours per day, 7 days per week via telephone, live chat, and e-mail. Also, on their website they claim to strive towards providing the best support in the industry, which tells me these guys really care about their customers. That definitely makes me feel good about recommending them to you for any web hosting needs that you may have.

HELPFUL: They also provide an open knowledgebase and tutorial section on their website.

Hostmonster™ Review Conclusion

When I take all of the factors into consideration, Hostmonster™ may not be the best web hosting provider in the world, but they are pretty darn close to it. After all, they do offer a lot more than most hosts have ever offered.

I do like quite a few things about this company, such as their support and reliability, but I think they could do better when it comes to providing their customers with a few more free bonuses.
