When it comes to your website, one of the first things you have to secure is a hosting plan. However, finding the right host is not easy. There is no shortage of web hosts to choose from and they all have similar offering which only makes your choice harder.
During my web hosting competition, I came across a hidden gem in the hosting industry that was neck and neck to Siteground services. In this post, I’ve decided to share what they offer and why you should give this company a try.
NameHero offers high speed cloud hosting that is suitable for both small and big websites. Unlike many hosting providers, they use the cloud technology that was optimized to load fast and handle high traffic volume.
NameHero offers shared, reseller, and VPS hosting, although they primarily advertise their reseller hosting plans. Let’s take a look at what each of these plans includes.
NameHero offers affordable shared hosting. They differentiate themselves from the majority of other hosting providers by clearly stating how many visits each of their plans can handle. They aren’t trying to sell “unlimited everything” which is nothing more than a marketing ploy which results in web hosts throttling your website once you reach a certain number of visitors.
Their shared hosting plans come with a free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt and free SSD or Solid State Drives that are protected by Raid 10. What makes SSDs better than the standard HDD is the fact that they don't have any moving parts and use flash memory to store data. This means your website will load faster and there is less chance of a hard drive failure. The RAID 10 used to protect the SSDs uses a combination of disk mirroring and disk striping to protect your data which means your website will be more secure than on a regular shared hosting server.
In addition to that, NameHero offers a free domain name, nightly backups, free website transfer, and one-click WordPress installation as well as 99.9% uptime guarantee. Another benefit of using NameHero is that all the shared plans come with complimentary malware scanning and proactive brute-force attack protection so you can keep your website safe from hackers.
The plans differ in the number of websites you can host, the amount of allocated RAM, and the number of CPU cores that are available.
NameHero’s shared hosting plans are available in 4 different tiers:
Reseller hosting is a great way to earn extra income and NameHero’s reseller hosting plans make it easy to get up and running with your reseller hosting business.
Each of their reseller hosting plans is fully white-labeled which means you can add your branding and business name in place of NameHero’s as well as set your own prices. Once you choose the desired reseller package, you can use WHMCS to automate the process or setup accounts manually inside of Web Host Manager. You also get the benefit of nightly backups so you can rest assured yours and your clients sites are safe.
It’s worth mentioning that each of the plans also includes a complimentary eNom reseller account so you can easily allow clients to register and buy domain names along with a hosting package.
Reseller plans also include 24/7 support and they can even help you migrate your reseller hosting account for free.
NameHero offers 3 reseller hosting plans.
As mentioned earlier, NameHero offers VPS hosting in addition to shared and reseller hosting. Similarly to their shared hosting plans, they use SSD protected by RAID10 and offer nightly backups, free domain names, and free automatic SSL certificates provided by Let’s Encrypt.
VPS hosting is the perfect solution once your website starts getting more than 100000 visitors per month or when you’re outgrown your reseller hosting account. It makes it easy to scale the allocated bandwidth, disk space, and memory based on your website needs.
NameHero’s VPS hosting is fully managed so you don’t have to worry about applying important software and kernel updates. Their support team will manage all aspects of your Operating System to ensure your server is up-to-date and patched for the latest security threats.
If you’re looking to migrate from your current hosting provider, NameHero’s support team will migrate up to 10 websites within the first 30 days of your account as long as your old host uses the cPanel.
NameHero’s VPS hosting comes in four plans.
All of the VPS plans include 99.9% uptime.
NameHero offers 24/7 customer support that’s available via phone, email, and live chat. Their website also includes an extensive knowledge base with articles, guides, and answers to most frequently asked questions.
Below, you’ll find a video that shows you how NameHero performed during my web hosting competition. Their shared hosting ranked in the top 3 along with Siteground.
If you’ve been thinking about switching web hosts and improving your website load times at the same time, give NameHero a try. They offer affordable shared hosting plans, blazing fast speeds, 24/7 customer support, and have 99.9% uptime guarantee.
