EasyCGI Hosting Review

EasyCGI Hosting is a popular Windows hosting provider. Their basic plan includes 3000 MB of storage and 50 GB transfer for $7.96 per month. They are known for their excellent Windows hosting.

At least at the time of our last review EasyCGI did not include e-commerce software. This is a limitation if you require an e-commerce web site. You can still host with EasyCGI, but you will need to get an e-commerce solution elsewhere and incorporate it into your site. There are several free internet shopping cart systems that you can incorporate into your site.

Reliability

EasyCGI takes reliability seriously and their excellent data center is a testament to that. Visit their site and review the specifications of their data center and network.

Pricing

If you weren't already aware, Windows hosting plans are usually more expensive than Unix plans due to the licensing and other fees associated with the Windows commercial products. However, EasyCGI's Windows hosting packages are very affordable, starting at $7.96 per month.

As mentioned above, EasyCGI does not offer e-commerce software, but they do offer free SSL on the Basic plan and above. We therefore recommend that if you use EasyCGI and require a shopping cart, simply search the Internet for a free shopping cart, install it, then use EasyCGI's secure certificate to handle taking customers credit cards securely.

Account Management Features

EasyCGI's control panel system could be better. Their system lacks many of the features that you get in other hosting plans. However, most of the basic features are there and you can get your site up and running. If we could suggest one thing to EasyCGI, it would be to incorporate one of the popular commercial account managements systems.

Customer Support Comments

EasyCGI customers rate their customer support very highly. EasyCGI just recently announced that they now offer technical support 24/7. You can contact them via toll-free phone or email. Note that EasyCGI does not offer live chat support as some other hosts do.
