So far, GearHost
has released two hosting plans named Standard and Reserved, the price for which is $5/mo and $25/mo respectively. The detailed features are displayed in below.
- Shared: 1 GB storage, 1 TB bandwidth, 1 GB Application Pool, 1 hr session timeout, 10 Max Workers, 15% CPU usage, 64 Bit processes, custom domains, and SSL support.
- Reserved: 1 GB storage, 1 TB bandwidth, 2 GB Application Pool, 24 hr session timeout, 10 Max Workers, 100% CPU usage, 64 Bit processes, custom domains and SSL support.
Besides the same features listed above, the plans both include 5 or 10 MB database usage only, and if you need more, you can pay $5/mo more for additional 1 GB. In addition, email storage is not included in the two plans, and if you need that, you will be charged $1/mo for 25 GB storage.
Frankly, the price is overcharged in terms of the limited features. But GearHost has an obvious advantage over other companies: free trial.
GearHost Promotion – Free Trial
To attract new customers, GearHost has worked out a way through free trial. The free plan comes with custom domains, 1 GB bandwidth, 100 MB storage, 256 MB Application Pool, etc. Even without credit cards, you are able to set up 5 free CloudSites and 5 free databases.
These limited resources are just suitable for first-time users who want to be familiar with the interface. You cannot require more because GearHost charges the plan for free after all. Once you have a higher demand on more resources, you need to upgrade the free package into a paid one.
No Refund Policy
Remember that GearHost does not support refunds while most web hosts allow it within 30 or more days. That is to say, it is impossible for you to get your money back when you are dissatisfied with their paid service. In this sense, you will take a high risk in testing out a service, which really needs much courage. So you should take a careful consideration before you intend to subscribe the GearHost service.
Given the high price and no money back guarantee, GearHost paid plans are not recommended. In our experience, we have learned some good web hosts who are tested by the market. You can take the following companies into account.
