Pricing & Cost Effectiveness

web hosting approvalHostrocket's pricing structure is very similar to other web hosting companies. Although their pricing is slightly higher than other web hosting companies, they do offer discounts if you are committed for a certain amount of time. Their pricing starts at $9.95 with a 2 year commitment and $14.95 without any commitments.

Reliability

All of Hostrocket's servers are on at least a dual Pentium 3 1 GHZ environment. In other words, you will never be on a server slower than a 2 GHz machine. Furthermore, each machine has at least 3 - 4 GB of random access memory. While other web hosting companies may put several thousand users onto one server, Hostrocket puts several hundred users per server. Hostrocket is currently running Red Hat 7.2 on all servers

Data Center

Hostrocket current utilizes Time Warner Internet for its bandwidth. Their data center currently holds over 50 servers and they have a fully redundant power supply.

Customer Relations

Hostrocket doesn't offer phone support for its customers it seems since they didn't advertise their support or sales phone number anywhere. It seems that the only way of getting a hold of them was through email and trouble tickets. On a positive note, they responded to trouble tickets in less than 30 minutes and activation time for account was less than 5 minutes, which is a big plus.

Control Panel

Hostrocket is using a newer version of CPanel. It has every single feature of CPanel and basically their design of the control panel makes it very appealing to use. Because Hostrocket is using the latest version of CPanel, their control panel has many more features that other CPanels do not have. So do not assume that you are getting the same Cpanel as you would expect from other web hosting companies. So far, Hostrocket seems to have the best setup of CPanel that is seen.

Conclusion

In general, Hostrocket offers one of the most appealing web hosting packages out there on the web. Even though their prices are slightly higher than average, their outstanding performance on their server and comprehensive list of features make this host a superior candidate for your hosting needs.
