Hosting-Review Top Pick:

Best Customer Service '06 & Editors' Pick '06

AN Hosting is the winner of the Hosting-Review 2006 Best PHP/MySQL Hosting Award. It has also been chosen as 2006 Editors' Pick.


Disclosure: As is the case with many other industry/topic specific magazines, websites and trade publications, we do receive compensation from some of the companies whose products we review within and outside of the web hosting industry, including, but not limited to, paid advertising placements, referral fees, contextual advertising links and sponsorship packages.

Since 2001, AN Hosting has taken every measure possible to live up to its magnanimous mission to be: "The Host-unlimited-sites-on-1-account-and-never-go-down Company", and if the awards they've amassed over the years are any testament, they're doing a stellar job.

Your website(s) will be housed in the c7 data center in Lindon Utah, designed to withstand the most extreme weather conditions, electrical outages, hacker attempts, and other safety, privacy, and security threats. Thousands of individuals and companies trust AN Hosting to serve their websites.

All AN Hosting packages include free setup, free live 24/7/365 support, free Domain Names for life, a number of free software tools such as a Site Builder and web analytics tools. AN Hosting also gives users unlimited email addresses.

Price Value

AN Hosting eschews the industry-standard 20-odd packages for their all-in-one, "everything-you-need" package. And the breadth of features - web design tools, email tools, online statistics tools, e-commerce tools, and more - that come free with this web hosting package makes AN Hosting - already a bargain at $5.95 for unlimited disk space and unlimited data transfer - an even better value.

They stand behind their 99.9% uptime guarantee and their 99.9% network uptime guarantee. There is a glitch, however, with their 30-day money back guarantee, namely that it's not 100%. If you cancel, you forfeit the $10.99 domain name registration fee AN Hosting incurred when getting you your "free" domain name, though you will walk away owning your domain name.

Reliability

AN Hosting has a high customer retention rate, undoubtedly thanks to its top-of-the-line equipment and an experienced team of administrators making sure those servers are always up. AN web hosting's network operates on fully redundant multi-carrier network. AN Hosting has little difficulty holding fast to the aforementioned 99.9% uptime and network uptime guarantees.

Control Panel

AN Hosting uses the Cpanel control panel, popular because of its clean, intuitive, icon-based interfaces and eminent usability. Cpanel incorporates a wide array of powerful and convenient features - including integral Backup and Restore functionality - with readily available Help info beside each tool to make learning to utilize them simple and painless. A collection of billing features help make account management easier too.

Customer Support

With their 24/7/365 toll-free telephone and live web chat support, AN Hosting invites you to contact them anytime at all, whether with pre-sales questions, for email and FTP assistance, technical issues, service status updates, or anything other web hosting question on your mind. This far surpasses the standard email query ticket system many web hosting companies rely on. That said, some users may be pleased to find that AN Hosting also offers support via email and postal mail.

AN Hosting support team members have replied with outstanding courtesy, promptness, and relevant information to the few customer complaints we have heard.
