HostRocket Review:

HostRocket Profile
HostRocket is an American company that has been providing quality services on webhosting market since 1999, when it was founded. According to its official website, the provider having its headquarters in Clifton Park, New York, has provided web hosting services to over 50,000 customers so far. Besides the standard packages, HostRocket offers its clients professional services of dedicated hosting, hosting reseller, hosting e-commerce and collocation.
Headquartered in Clifton Park, NY, HostRocket has operations in a region recognized as a leader in high-tech sector. The area where the company is located was included by Forbes magazine’s into “Top 20 places for doing business in America” section while Sperling’s BestPlaces refers to the same region as “the least stressful in the country”. Having a strong economic growth since its establishment and being situated into a highly developed area with the most skilled workers in America, HostRocket provides very reliable and high security services, therefore its users remarked company’s very large stability and high degree of trust.

Web Space and Bandwidth
Although it does not use the UNLIMITED term when talking about server space included within each hosting package, HostRocket offers no less than 1,000 GB disk space growing daily. In our opinion, UNLIMITED Disk Space term refers to that you can guest any files you wish but, in our acceptance, the 1000 GB made available by HostRocket are more than enough, regardless of the site you host. We accurately predict that is almost impossible for you to need all the space provided by the hosting company.

Host Unlimited Domains
With HostRocket your business can grow without any problems. Even if you originally hosted a single web domain, you can always host an unlimited number of domains within any Hostocket account. We believe that this advantage is very important because it removes from the very beginning all the problems appeared with the migration from a hosting account to another or even when upgrading the initial pocket.

Free Domain For Life
Unfortunately, HostRocket does not offer you the possibility to register a free domain name when creating the host account. Moreover, in our opinion the domain registration service provided by HostRocket is costly and unprofessional. Besides being available only extensions like .com, .net, .org, .info and .biz, any registration of a web domain will get out of your pocket no less than $ 20/year, regardless of the period chosen. When speaking about domains registration, HostRocket received a bad score from us.

99,9% Uptime Guarantee
When asking for HostRocket services you should bear in mind the time the server is functional. Although, according to our monitoring, HostRocket initially offered a 99.9% uptime (a really good one!), we found that, during 2009, the provider could not offer an uptime more than 99.5%. Therefore, if you really want the server that hosts your site be up as much as possible, the solution is not HostRocket. But you can choose ThinkHost which offers the best uptime, or JustHost – the company that won the Best Web Hosting 2010.

In terms of security, stability and reliability of its servers, HostRocket pass successfully the test undergone by our webmasters. Using Cisco routers and efficient switches, that reduce downtime close to zero, but also redundant firewalls to be able to prevent DOS or DDOS type attacks, HostRocket has won the trust of thousands of users worldwide. Moreover, we should not overlook the fact that HostRocket uses high performance backup generators in combination with UPS batteries in order to prevent data loss and also to provide as small as possible server downtime.

cPanel Control Panel
As HostRocket understood the users demand for the most popular management system, it created a control panel totally based on cPanel functions for all its clients, but customized with a number of useful and easy to understand functions. Within the HostRocket control panel you may find all tools necessary for an effective management of your site. Database management, email accounts or hosted domain management is now just a piece of cake.

Free Script Library
Free scripts provided by HostRocket are not as many as we expected, but every software available in the hosting account that is directly accessed from the control panel interface is useful and easy to use. HostRocket offers facilities such as CRON Abilities, Microsoft Expression Web, GD/ImageMagick, AwStats and Webalizer web statistics but also SSH access.

Customer Support
Knowing that HostRocket is a famous name on the US webhosting market, the support for its customers should be up the expectations. Therefore, accourding our reviews, we found that HostRocket is very close to its customers as a provider of hosting services. Having non-stop technical support by email, phone or ticket system, HostRocket does not fail to meet our expectation. Moreover, you can talk with company experts via live chat, but if you want a faster response to your question, you can access the FAQ SECTION of the site, section that is quite comprehensive and very rich in useful information.

Price Value
HostRocket provides no less than 4 hosting plans, each of which is adapted to every budget. Hosting monthly payment plan is a bit expensive, $ 9.99, but if you are convinced of the quality of services provided by HostRocket, you may choose to pay web hosting plan in 12 or 24 months, and you have 3 months free in the first situation, and 6 months free in the second. If you pay in 24 months, you will have a cost of only $ 5.99/month.

Money Back Guarantee
Regardless of the reason that you have, you should not offer any explanations to HostRocket if you wish your money to be returned within 30 days from hosting services purchasing data. Therefore, if you are not satisfied with the services of this company, you may ask for your money back within 30 days and HostRocket will not ask you any questions.
