247-Host.com hosting was established in 2004 in Montreal, Canada. The company operates two data centers in the U.S., both in Texas. A variety of tiered hosting plans makes 247-Host.com a flexible and versatile choice of web host for a wide range of customers.

Although you hope you’ll never need to use it, it’s good to know that 247-Host web hosting services come with a complete 45-day money back guarantee. And even after the 45 days have expired, if you're not satisfied with 247-Host.com services at any time during your term, you can still cancel and receive a refund on the remaining unused portion of that term. Unlike many of the web hosts in the market today, it seems that 247-Host is actually watching out for their customers – not trying to tangle them up in small print.

Price Value

Shared hosting at 247-Host.com starts at just $2.99 per month. What’s more, the company is currently running a special coupon code offering the first month of hosting free. 247-Host.com offers 5 different levels of shared hosting, allowing customers to find the right plan for them, paying only for the services they need and not for a bunch of extras they don't.

The Gold, Expert, and Platinum plans all come with unlimited web space, bandwidth, email accounts, add-on domains and subdomains, FTP accounts, and MySQL databases. They also include video and audio streaming features. The Platinum plan even comes with free private SSL and a dedicated IP (a dedicated IP is available with all plans – but is only free for Platinum customers).

Reliability

Hosting with 247-Host.com comes with a 99.99% uptime guarantee. If the host fails to deliver on that guarantee, you'll get a month of service for free. 247-Host.com also gives every customer a 99.9% network uptime guarantee. Plus, all websites hosted by 247-Host.com receive full regular backups.

All 247-Host.com customers' websites are hosted by one or both of the company's data centers in Houston and Dallas, Texas. Both of these world class data centers are independently audited on a regular basis to ensure compliance with industry standards for best practices, including ISO 9000:2001 and SAS 70 Type II. Both data centers are supported by redundant uninterrupted power systems, fire detection and suppression systems, and HVAC environmental control systems. The facilities are monitored by live staff at all times and maintained through centralized network monitoring in the Network Operations Center (NOC).

The fully redundant architecture in 247-Host.com hosting's multiple concurrent, high-capacity Tier 1 network guarantees no single point of failure.
