BigRock provides 4 web hosting plans based on Linux – Starter, Advanced, Business and Pro. The main differences among the plans are the prices and the number of allowed domains. You can get the basic information about the plans in below.
Note that the prices mentioned here are for the 1-year billing. If you choose longer terms like 2/3/5/10 years, the costs are lower. Monthly, quarterly and semi-annual billings are not allowed.
- Starter: $2.39/mo, including 1 hosted domain, 10 GB disk space, 200 email accounts, and unlimited bandwidth.
- Advanced: $4.29/mo, including 1 hosted domain and unlimited disk space, email accounts and bandwidth.
- Business: $7.59/mo, including 3 hosted domains and all features in Advanced.
- Pro: $10.59/mo, including unlimited hosted domains, disk space, emails and bandwidth.
The plans, especially the Starter plan, are cheap at the first glimpse. However, you have to pay attention that Starter and Business only allow hosting a single domain.
When taking this fact into consideration, we do not think the plans are really cost-effective because there are many web hosts offering even better hosting plans. For example, Arvixe
prices a plan with 6 hosted domains and unlimited disk space at $2.8/mo only. Hosting unlimited domains with this provider costs $4.9/mo.
Regarding the features, all BigRock web hosting plans come with cPanel, Softaculous installer, and multiple development features including PHP 5.2-5.4, Ruby on Rails, Python, Perl and MySQL databases. You must note that the PHP versions are a little outdated because scripts like WordPress already recommend PHP 5.6 or higher. Besides, BigRock does not offer marketing freebies or free domain in any of these plans.
