EZ Web Hosting Review: Are They Really Easy to Use?
EZ Web Hosting Introduction
EZ Web Hosting is a US-based web host, located in Mooresville, North Carolina. They have been in business since 2000, and maintain a customer-centric focus that aims to provide reliable, helpful, and easy hosting solutions. In addition to hosting, they offer a number of website design services.
Services and Specializations – Shared Hosting Packages
All EZ Web Hosting plans come full of features, including unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email accounts, Softaculous one-click installs, and unlimited databases. Multiple statistical tools are available, including Webalizer, AwStats, Error Log, and access to raw logs. All sites include cPanel, the most popular hosting control panel.
Higher-level shared plans add support for multiple websites, additional server resources, and monthly webmaster service to help with setting up or maintaining your website.
Where EZ Host really stands out is the variety of web creation options they provide for all plans. One-click installs are available for WordPress and Joomla. They provide a drag and drop website builder with over 1,000 templates. If you’re hosting an eCommerce site, they provide 16 different shopping carts for you to choose from. And if those don’t fulfill all of your website needs, they offer dedicated website consultation services, with over 13 years’ experience in both site creation and marketing.
Additional Hosting Package
If the standard shared hosting packages aren’t right for you, EZ Web Hosting also offers a number of other options:
- Just want to host a WordPress site? They offer 3 levels, depending on whether you want to host a single site, five sites, or unlimited sites. All levels include unlimited WordPress installs.
- If you need ASP hosting, they offer 3 levels, based on the number of websites you need to host. Unlike their other hosting plans, these features the Plesk control panel.
- Virtual Private Servers are also available, with full root access, and offered at three levels of storage, bandwidth, and Ram.
- And at the highest end, they offer Dedicated Private Servers with unlimited bandwidth and 3 levels of performance to choose from.
EZ Web Hosting uses high-performance hard drives, configured with RAID for speed and security. They maintain a redundant network path and utilize probes to automatically route data for optimal speed and performance.
Support and Customer Service
EZ Web Hosting offers support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, via an online support system. Estimated response times are updated regularly, based on the past week’s performance. At the time of this writing, average response times were 18 minutes 7 seconds. They also offer a live chat option for immediate support.
If you’re moving your site from another host, EZ Web Hosting provides free website transfers, which include both moving your site to the new server and updating your DNS information.
Security and Backups
EZ Web Hosting provides a number of security features to keep your site running smoothly. Every plan includes daily malware scans. If they detect anything, they take care of it automatically and let you know.
They also provide full system backups 9 times per day. However, like most hosts, they do not guarantee the usability of those backups, so it’s a good idea to keep your own backups and store them in a unique location.
EZ Web Hosting offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee. To prove it, they provide free website monitoring tools with all hosting plans.
Billing and Payment Policies
EZ Web Hosting accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and PayPal. All payments are due with 7 days of invoice. If payment is not received, the account will be suspended. Cancelations can be handled either by contacting the billing department or through your online account. EZ Web Hosting provides a 30-day money-back guarantee, though domain name registration and dedicated server setup fees are not refundable.
New customers who pay up front for 12 or 24 months receive a free domain registration.
Whether you’re looking for a basic, shared hosting plan or a robust, dedicated server, EZ Web Hosting has you covered. All of their plans include a huge set of standard features, making just about any type of website a possibility.
EZ Web Hosting truly stands out in the realm of site building options. Most hosts provide one-click installation for WordPress and some type of drag and drop website builder, but WordPress comes with the added complications of a second control panel and regular updates, and most site builders only include a handful of templates, making it impossible to find something that fits your style. EZ Web Host’s site builder includes over 1,000 templates, so if you want a simple solution, there’s bound to be a template that makes it possible. And, of course, having a team of experienced site consultants on hand doesn’t hurt either!
If you are looking for more than just shared hosting, it’s a little tricky to find their other hosting plans. The top menu only sends you to their main three options, all low-cost shared plans. For the WordPress hosting, ASP, or private hosting you’ll need to scroll down to the site menu at the bottom of the page.
