There are two hosting plans released by GearHost: one is Shared Web Node at $5/mo or $0.007/hr, and the other is Reserved Web Node at $25/mo or $0.037/hr. The former one is a popular choice while the latter is a plan with better performance. Here we mainly discuss the features of the basic plan.
On one hand, GearHost offers Slick control panel, not a popular one, which will make it difficult for users to manage their various hosted services. On the other hand, the most important thing is that the limited resources are not worthy that price even with some advanced features like Node.js, MSSQL 2014, MySQL 5.6, etc.
In Shared Web Node, GearHost puts restrictions on the features. This plan only includes 1 GB Application Pool, 1 GB storage, 1 TB bandwidth, 10 Max Workers, 15% CPU usage, 1 hr session timeout, etc.
The good point is that you can get a free package, only coming with 1 Max Worker, 1 GB bandwidth, 5% CPU usage, 100 MB storage, and 256 MB Application Pool. The free trial sounds great, but the resources in it are only enough for you to host a simple blog with a few pictures and texts. A warning can be made that without SSL, your site may be attacked due to the lack of protection.
At the beginning, you may be attracted due to the free trial. Once you require more resources, you must scale to the paid plans which are at least $5/mo. Here pay attention that GearHost does not provide refund policy, which means that you cannot require money back when dissatisfied with the service. To avoid the situation, you have better ASP.NET hosting choices
with more affordable prices and longer full refund policies.
