Budget Windows Hosting: Many people will agree that, the prices EasyCGI charges for Windows Hosting is quite competitive. It is not easy to find such prices elsewhere but EasyCGI is trying to cut an edge in providing cheap web hosting services that most users can afford.

Ad Credits: Customers who wish to host with this web hosting company will enjoy advertising credits which are worth $ 50 Google ad credits and $ 25 Yahoo ad credits which sets them off when they are starting their business.
EasyCGI supports Multimedia.
Windows Hosting: EasyCGI does not provide Windows VPS or Reseller hosting. They only provide Linux VPS and Reseller hosting platform although some users like to purchase both Windows and Linux hosting packages.
E-Commerce: If you require e-commerce function then you better look around before hosting with EasyCGI because this hosting company does not offer powerful e-Commerce service except some features like SSL Secure Service, OS Commerce and EV-SSL certificates. They lack some resources like Secure Shell Access which is provided elsewhere.
Control Panel: The control panel used by EasyCGI.com does not have a lot of functionality. It is limited in its capability so many users may find it lacking.
There are other web hosts who provide cheaper services and more features than EasyCGI so it’s better to shop around before purchasing their packages.
E-Commerce Features are Inadequate
I bought EasyCGI packages but the websites I created were simplified. This is a web host for those who are interested in basic websites. I required e-Commerce features to sell my business products but this hosting company does not offer essential e-Commerce services like I expected especially Secure Shell Access which I need which was provided by my previous web host.
Furthermore, I am used to cPanel but the Plesk control panel offered by EasyCGI is limited in its functionality. It has limits in its capability so I found it lacking in the advanced features found with cPanel which is my favorite control panel. I can easily monitor my website this way but Plesk is not a good choice for me.
EasyCGI does not offer a free domain like other web hosts some of which offer free domain name for the life of the account. They also do not have a user forum like their competitors.
EasyCGI only provides Linux VPS and Reseller hosting although I like to purchase both Windows and Linux packages. There are other web hosting providers that offer cheaper Windows hosting than them.
I would prefer to host my e-commerce site elsewhere.posted by Lily Friday, 11 January 2013 16:22 Comment Link
