BizHosting Hosting Review

BizHosting (a division of About Web services) was established in 2001. They provide a very stable hosting solution. They are different than most of the hosts we've reviewed in that they provide all the tools you'll need for an e-commerce web site. With a large parent company BizHosting is well equipped to provide scalable web services that run smoothly.

Reliability

Reliability at BizHosting is not an issue. Being powered by such a large parent company has its benefits. You won't be disappointed by BizHosting's service.

Pricing

BizHosting offers several features for small to medium sized businesses. New businesses will probably be interested in the value plan. For $21.95 per month you'll get 200MB of disk space, 10 email accounts, the ability to accept credit cards, and free e-mail and phone support.

Medium to large businesses will probably benefit from the Professional hosting plan. You'll get 400MB of space and some advanced features, including 100 e-mail accounts, search engine submission, gift certificates, and priority e-mail and phone support. You'll also be positioned to accept credit cards online. They also offer expert consulting for a small additional fee.

BizHosting will upgrade your account automatically when new features are added to their system.

BizHosting's pricing is higher than the other hosting solutions we've reviewed, but their packages include everything you'll need for an e-commerce site. With the other hosts you'll have to add on the extra features for added costs. BizHosting has taken care of all of this for you. Also note the the first month of hosting is free with BizHosting.

Account Management Features

Bizhosting provides many account management features including promotion tools, search engine optimization tools, a press release generator and a very nice visual site builder. They also provide great tools for managing your online store such as the discount manager. This feature allows you to manage product promotions or sells. You can manage orders and customer information using the straight-forward tools provided.

One highlight is the site traffic statistics tool - one the best we've seen. The visual site builder is cool too. It makes designing your online store very simple. It's great if you're just beginning on the web.

Customer Support Comments

Bizhosting customer support is decent. They provide e-mail and phone support with all packages. The Professional package comes with priority phone and e-mail support.
