AwardSpace has 2 types of shared hosting: standard shared hosting and semi-managed hosting. The former is designed for hosting one or several websites with light traffic, while the latter is for hosting one high-traffic website or multiple medium-sized websites.
Both types of services include 3 upgradable plans. The standard shared hosting plans, named Basic, Web Pro Plus and Max Pack Plus, all come with unlimited disk space and bandwidth. Free domains are offered in the 2 advanced plans except Basic. The prices of the plans are $2.99/mo, $4.57/mo, $5.83/mo respectively for initial term, and $4.99/mo, $6.65/mo, $9.99/mo for renewal.
The semi-dedicated hosting plans work in the similar way like VPS. They are packed with dedicated disk space and RAM, but the control over the server is limited. Starter, the primary plan, includes 30 GB disk space and 350 GB bandwidth, priced at $14.99/mo.Pros of AwardSpace paid web hosting:
