Introduction

Anhosting is a unique player in the hosting industry. Since launch, Anhosting has adjusted their pricing scheme several times, but has evolved with a feature rich package that includes additional add-ons such as free domain registration, free marketing package including free advertising on advertising networks, and free web design. Anhosting offers a unique approach to hosting plans: only one hosting plan, and they have been criticized on the financials behind offering $7.95 hosting with 1500MB disk space and unmetered web traffic. Unmetered traffic & email means you never have to worry about going over your limit for bandwidth and getting billed. Besides capacity, take a look at their massive list of features here just to prove that they are offering more than just capacity. Their concept of unmetered traffic is unique in an industry where web hosting companies constantly make money from charging their customers extra for going over their bandwidth.

Anhosting is a relatively new player, launched in late 2002 it has grown quickly by the thousands of customers. Today, Anhosting is honored almost daily by new customer testimonials, which they seem to add to their testimonial page daily. Anhosting has two corporate offices, one in Chicago-Land and one in Kentucky, with servers in Chicago, and in Orlando Florida. Lately, Anhosting just bought out several web hosting companies including Trillhost and Anhost.

Initial Impression of Anhosting

Anhosting did not appear to provide customers with telephone support, so we decided to send in a support ticket. Within minutes (no joke) a technician by the name of Aaron replied and gave us a phone number and extension to speak with him directly. Anhosting does provide toll free technical support all day and all night.

We called them. After dialing the number and waiting on hold for a few seconds after pushing the extension we were greeted by Aaron, the technician. Our representative talked to us about various aspects of what we were planning on doing with our site, and eventually told us that Anhosting would be able to help us. He even offered to personally walk us through the installation of one of their bundled eCommerce products -- Agora Cart. We declined. Then, we signed up using their online form, and had an instant setup followed by a personalized email from
an Customer Representative.

Price and Cost Effectiveness

You can't compete with Anhosting when it comes to price and cost effectiveness. Anhosting cost just $7.95 per month (we prepaid for six months), which is more than reasonable for what they offered. They also registered our domain for us, which clearly meant they knew they were not going to make a penny off of us the first month, so it seems quite clear that in order for them to continue offering free domain registration, they would have to be sure that customers were happy with service, and continue.

We had to question the financial numbers behind their pricing. But, then we assumed they are probably singing up a large number of clients and due to this they are generating a profit. Regardless, this cost us pennies compared to the prices we paid at some other hosts.

Anhosting Reliability

We were with Anhosting for two months and didn't notice a single second of down time. Further, their ANY-TIME money back guarantee was flawless. We did run into a few software problems while installing some of our own software, and a technician was able to assist us at 4AM. Anhosting is one of the few companies which offers real 24 hour support both over the phone and via email. Their technical support staffs are also one of the most friendliest in the industry.

To prove that they are the most reliable, just take a look at their pager service here

Cpanel Control Panel

Anhosting uses cPanel -- but a highly modified, customized and added-to version. Anhosting's control panel is pretty, easy to use and has every feature we
could imagine. It even installed bulletin board and eCommerce software for us. To take a demo look at the control panel, click here.

Conclusion

Anhosting was fantastic. If they had listed their phone number and given us a new car, they would have been #1. In fact, this service was so good that one of our editors, Russ, has signed up for his families web site. What more could you ask for? Not much. Right now as this review was revised, Anhosting is offering a free month of their web hosting just for purchasing one year in advance. Anhosting was about as good as it gets.
