midPhase holds an excellent reputation for excellent hosting reliability at low hosting prices. This company utilizes only state of the art datacenter facilities. These facilities feature redundant power sources, multiple network carriers, on-site professional staff, SAS 70 Type II compliant, Tier 3 classification, 30” raised floor, advanced canopy cold row cooling, VESDA smoke detection system, and 24/7 security and digital video surveillance. The reliability of this company is excellent if you are looking to host a small- to mid-size website. And best of all, midPhase offers unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth.

Price Value

midPhase offers one of the lowest-priced hosting solutions on the Internet today: Unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth can be had for as little as $2.95 per month. They also throw in a free domain name and a 99.9% uptime guarantee, which makes this a great deal. Also included is a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Reliability

midPhase offers excellent information on reliability of its servers, including making current uptime statistics available on-site to potential and current customers. Uptime records are very good to excellent.

Control Panel

This company has a modified version of cPanel that is much easier to use for the average beginner customer. The panel allows you to manage your web site; you can add, remove, and modify e-mail accounts on the fly, view your account quota and see how much space you have used, and you can install and set up message boards, and chat forums. MidPhase also boasts one-click installs for popular applications such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and a number of other free third-party scripts for quick and easy installation. Last but not least midPhase offers a free website builder that allows you to create a simple web site without knowing HTML at all.

Customer Support

midPhase support is great: They offer a thorough customer support center, helpful FAQ’s, toll-free support line, live animated tutorials, and a help desk open 24/7. A server status report on-site is also a unique benefit that is offered to customers as well as helpful tips posted on their customer blog.

The customer service team at this online hosting provider is above average in terms of response times to e-mails and support tickets. midPhase is not one of those companies that will reply to your help questions out of a "wizard" or FAQ guide.
