Our Review

StartLogic is a company that is pretty new to the hosting industry, but they have gotten off to a great start and offer a very impressive hosting package. The main hosting package that they offer at StartLogic is the basic $5.95 a month plan, with this plan you receive the industry standard Unlimited disk space and Unlimited bandwidth. Also with your $5.95 monthly hosting plan you will receive a free domain name and free set up to get your hosting account started off right. Also when you sign up with StartLogic you will receive thirty dollars worth of free google ad words and yahoo pay per click credits to market your site. So, this plan is probably sounding pretty good to you about now and it is a good plan but when they said no hidden fees they lied in a way, so what hidden fees are there well for one if you just want to go month to month you have to pay a mandatory thirty dollar set up fee and close to seven dollars for a domain, so that domain they said was free is not as free as it seems.

So if you go month to month you are charged $6.95 plus a bunch of other fees if you sign up for a year then the fees are waved and you are charged $6.95 a month and if you a re ready to take the commitment and dedicate yourself to two years then the price will only be $5.95 a month. Regardless of the price some of the features of the basic plan include the capability to host Unlimited domains and have unlimited email accounts. Some of the major down sides to this plan are that there are only twenty five MySql data bases allowed on each account and only fifty domains ( now unlimited), the domains is not that much of a problem but only being allowed twenty five data bases sucks because these will be used up much sooner than the number of domains.

Besides the minor negative points about the StartLogic basic plan there are some cool things that they are doing like offering a free keyword generator and a marketing manual consisting of over five hundred pages. Startlogic also offers $50 Google Adword credit and $25 Yahoo Search credit. Other positive things that they have added to the basic plan include shopping cart systems and custom web site building software. So over all StartLogic is a pretty good host they offer a ton of extra features and many of them unlimited, also they have competitive pricing compared to other hosts, the only things that we would change about the StartLogic hosting program is that they should factor in the thirty dollar set up fee ( Free Setup offer for Limited Time )and they should offer more domains and data bases per account, other than that they offer one of the best plans out there.
