ePowHost Web Hosting Review: Advantages
Unlike most hosts who limit what you to a single domain name or a certain amount of bandwidth, ePowHost doesn’t restrict you to any of these limitations. Instead they take a different approach and let you grow your business by taking advantage of their economics of scale. They also allow you to take advantage of the most popular control panel online today – cPanel. Add in their 24/7 customer support and FrontPage extensions for use with your Microsoft programs; they truly have one of the best offerings on the web today. They also supply you with all of the documentation to use all of their features in a very easy to find format.
ePowHost Web Hosting Review: Disadvantages
While on paper ePowHost seems like a dream come true, there are a few drawbacks to what they offer. Giving everyone as much as possible restricts their ability to spend money on a whole lot other then servers to hold your armada of websites. The only support that is offer is via a helpdesk – they do not offer phone support. There also is not any live chat support system (as the website might lead you to believe) If you are more of an internet person (and I’m guessing you are if you are looking for hosting!) then this is not such a big deal. They do respond to support tickets in a timely fashion even if you cannot actually get someone live to talk to.
