I have mentioned a couple of times recently that I am starting to look for a new web host for several different reasons, the first being bandwidth and CPU usage. I still don’t know if I am going to switch or not but I have found a couple of different providers that I am looking into one of which is Host Arcadia, who is also sponsoring this review.
Host Arcadia has a couple of really good plans that I am looking at. One of the things that really interests me is that their biggest plan, Zion, has 2.5 times the bandwidth that I currently get from my provider for less than half the price. The also let you pay a yearly rate. At $130 a year for the biggest plan, that’s what I pay for five months at my current provider.
The starter plan that they offer which is good for most folks is only $3 a month but you have to pay for that one a year at a time, so it’s $36. Not bad at all. In addition to the extra space and bandwidth you get from their hosting plans, Host Arcadia also throws in webmail, unlimited email accounts, unlimited MySQL databases,cpanel, and Fantastico.
They also have a pretty nice affiliate program that I am going to be looking into as well. If you are interested in web hosting or reselling you can get in touch with them at 1-845-784-1614. They are running a pretty nice Grand Opening Reseller Promotion as well at $9.95 a month for 3GB space, 80GB bandwidth, cpanel and Fantastico along with unlimited hosted domains.
I also like the fact that their servers are hosted in Atlanta. Being a southern boy myself I prefer to use things that are “local” although that pretty much doesn’t matter now except for the fact that my current provider is either somewhere out west or in the northeast and occasionally I have DNS issues with them.
