HostMetro Web Hosting Review by recently awarded HostMetro, based in Schaumburg, Illinois, for Best Web Hosting. HostMetro offers very affordable shared hosting services with all the features that are needed to run a website.

HostMetro Features

Top of the line equipment – At HostMetro, all websites – from personal blogs to online business websites, are hosted on top quality brand name equipment. All servers are from Supermicro, built with Intel Xeon processors and solid state hard drives with RAID protection. These top quality servers offer high and reliable performance to all users.

Top quality data center – To ensure that all websites hosted at HostMetro can perform at their highest speed, HostMetro has built the fastest network connections at their world-class data center. They also guarantee that their uptime is 99.9%, which means that websites hosted at HostMetro are almost always accessible.

User-friendly control panel – Each hosting account at HostMetro comes with the cPanel hosting control panel. This control panel allows users to manage and configure their hosting environment easily. Some features of cPanel include: manage email accounts, manage domains including add-on domains and subdomains, access backup/restore tool and other tools, etc. Users can also install scripts easily with the cPanel control panel. For example, installing the popular content management platform WordPress involves just a few clicks.

Reliable backup – For anyone who owns a website, having a good backup of the whole website is very important. When something happens to a website, for example, when it is hacked, sometimes the fastest way to get it up and running is to restore the website from backup. At HostMetro, all hosting accounts are backed up automatically each week. If you prefer more frequent backups, you can set that up easily using the backup tool that is included in cPanel.

Award winning customer support – HostMetro’s award winning customer support is what makes it stands out from the crowd. The main goal of HostMetro is to make every customer happy and they do this by having a team of friendly and helpful customer support representatives. Their customer support representatives are experienced and knowledgeable in web hosting, and can be reached 24/7.
