SSD Web Hosting From First2Host
First2Host offer SSD Web Hosting. SSD Web Hosting is based on SSD hard drives. These typically read data on the disk at 6 GBPS which means you get a huge performance boost over a standard SATA based web hosting account which typically reads data from a standard 7200RPM hard drive. Like what’s usually found on a desktop PC.
First2Host offer four plans for their SSD Web Hosting ranging from £2.95 right up to £14.95. Each plan has different options. On the basic SSD Web Hosting plan you get 10GB of space and can host one domain name which is more than enough for your average website. But if you would like to host multiple websites on the same account and manage all of your websites in the same place this is possible on the other three web hosting plans First2Host offer.
Integrated with the control panel is CloudFlare. CloudFlare can help you protect your website from attacks as well as providing a CDN at extra cost if required. SSL certificates are included in all plans for any domain name you host so if you purchase plan four you can host ten websites from the same account and have 10 SSL Certificates.
First2Host support is rated as good. Comments from our community and the numerous reviews from other sites all say First2Host offer a fantastic support team with response times of under 15 minutes to tickets and a few seconds on live chat.
The standard control panel they use is cPanel so if you are with another provider that uses cPanel they will move all of your sites into your new account with them in under 24 hours with no downtime for your website visitors. First2Host also take weekly backups of your website and store them in an offsite location. If you need to restore your website they can do this for you with ease.
