    1. 36 month plan is charged as whole amount, not 36 monthly payments. That’s how you’re able to get the big discount.
    2. Yes, you can use it to host a website you created locally. Not just wordpress.
    3. You can cancel after 45 days, and yes you wouldn’t pay any more.
    5. Unlimited is never truly unlimited on hosting.. But only like 1% of users get too big in disk and bandwidth usage. What’s your site going to be? If it’s not hosting big file downloads you don’t need to worry about it.

    Thanks for the update Steve. Since I don’t have time to update on every single little policy change of every host I review, user-contributed updates do help. I will update it to reflect the info you provided. Since I wrote this I have really been trying to push people to use cPanel Hosting instead of website builder, anyway. Some people still message me on here with questions because they had already signed up for it, though… Really wish it was easy to switch.

But yeah, thank you… I agree with you – when you’ve been doing this a long time, it’s often hard to put oneself in the place of being newbie or intermediate again. Were there any specific moments in the video where you felt like “wait, what?” and then felt like you fell behind? (how frustrating!) Let me know.

    Hi Leonie, sorry, I somehow only just saw your comment! Message us if you still need help. But yeah, you’re right on with your plan. It’s very flexible, scalable, and you can set up everything you need for an online shop without spending anything extra. For email on your domain, I’m not really sure. I still use the Google Apps gmail since it’s $5/mo, but if you will use many email addresses, whew that will add up.

    Hi Tim, great question. Shopify is a host itself, so when you buy Shopify, you don’t need any other web hosting. If you go with eHost, you should use WordPress to make your website. Many successful online stores are built on WordPress. Shopify is easier to set up, but it’s so simplified that it’s restrictive and harder to customize.

    I would actually suggest going with a normal hosting service instead of a website builder, and then using WordPress. Many nice themes are available… both free and paid.

    Ben, thank you! I’m sorry for how late my reply is as I have been overwhelmed with launching a new store (my main business these days is my online stores on Shopify).

    No hosting company would be directly responsible for supporting the feature you ask about, as they just provide hosting. If you were looking at website builders, that would be a different story, as whatever builder you choose, you’re stuck with their features until they add more. They’re walled gardens as they’re called…

    So here’s what I’m getting at – Whichever hosting company you go with, you should choose cPanel Hosting (regular web hosting, not a website builder). Then you can use WordPress, and there are tons of free themes and plugins which support localization like you want. BTW how’s your experience at Aabaco? I’m receiving a ton of horrible reviews form Aabaco customers lately.

    Hi Faaezah, thanks for the kind words and I’m sorry I couldn’t reply until now. I hope your website is at least started by now. Sounds like you need some complex solutions there. If you’re using WordPress (which is automatically set up on eHost cpanel hosting), you could possibly use a membership plugin like Wishlist Member to manage your trade membership levels. WooCommerce might have an add-on that could do what you want as well since your membership levels come with certain discounts. Can you do this yourself? Yes, but it will be a pain. But that’s the story of my life and I’ve only become better from it. So just believe in yourself. The obstacle is the way ^___^

    Hi Tina, great question – definitely definitely I would choose cPanel hosting. If you already have enough revenue to cover the expenses though, I would look into Shopify as well. I <3 Shopify and have a couple stores as my main business. With that said, you can certainly have a great store on WordPress (eHost cpanel hosting), using Woocommerce.

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for your great questions. I’m not really sure about cost exactly, since their prices are subject to change, and recently I saw they just removed their month to month payment option… so I have to remove that from my review.

    I personally love using Shopify for selling physical products online, and I have a couple online stores of my own as my main business. For someone just starting out, I think Shopify might seem expensive, but it just works so well out of the box. If you go the route of WordPress with Woocommerce, yeah, that’s free except for your hosting costs like eHost… But it takes more time and effort to get set up and have an online store that looks great. On the other hand, Shopify’s blog functionality sucks compared to WordPress… so there are pros and cons either way. So all I can say is I personally use Shopify for my online stores.

    If you choose eHost’s cPanel hosting, you’ll use WordPress to make your website. So you’ll be able to add whatever pages and blog posts you want with a lot of flexibility. You can also have an email like [email protected] because cPanel includes mail server functionality, and it’s not hard to set up.

    Hi Elivia,

    You definitely do not need BlueHost’s $24/mo hosting… Sign up for just their most basic hosting.
    I’m not really sure what you mean about an extra fee.
    But call to action buttons would be easily made using a free WordPress plugin like “Shortcodes Ultimate” or the WordPress theme you already chose may have them already integrated for easy use.
    A hosting company like BlueHost may not be very helpful on the phone, as it’s not their job to be your web designer and consultant. I suggest you watch this video I found which shows you how to make a website step by step. She uses HostGator in the video, but it’s the same type of hosting whether you use BlueHost or HostGator, so the steps you follow are the same: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TY4DsaDVh8U

    Yulius,

    Thanks for your patience here- I try to reply to questions as fast as I can. I always recommend their cPanel hosting rather than a website builder. cPanel hosting sounds difficult but really, all you do is use the automatic WordPress installer, and make a great site with WordPress, which has tons of great themes and plugins available, both free and paid. You can use WooCommerce for your shopping cart on that.

    Hi Irma,

    Great question! I would definitely recommend you use cPanel hosting. No matter who you choose, if it’s eHost or another company. I always still recommend people use WordPress on cPanel Hosting instead of using a restrictive website builder platform.

    You can accomplish everything you listed out pretty easily using WordPress. Here’s a great video I found walking you through setting up a website on WordPress. She’s using HostGator as her hosting, but it doesn’t matter.. WordPress is the same no matter what host you use.

    Hi Linda! Thanks for your kind words. I do my best to be helpful.

    One thing I can tell you is that even though they may say this and that about promotions, they generally have to do promotions often in order to stay competitive. So don’t feel big pressure to sign up with one. Take your time and do it when you are ready. On that note, I just filled out some info to test signing up for eHost, and you’re right – i see they have recently removed their month-to-month option. That sucks… You may want to look into HostGator as they still offer month-to-month. Here’s a great video I found that walks you through making a great website with WordPress on HostGator: https://youtu.be/TY4DsaDVh8U

    Hi David, great questions. In situations like this, it may be best to pursue this through your credit card company. However, before you do that, I suggest you notify HostClear support that if they don’t refund your money, you will be forced to charge back. I have had to do this sometimes in life when some companies charged me for random things I never bought.

    Hi Luis, great questions!
    The site builder account isn’t free. You’ll pay the same amount whether you choose the Website Builder account or the cPanel Hosting account.
    I think what you’re really asking is… How many websites can you create with one Website Builder account? The answer is 1. That’s one of the many reasons I much prefer cPanel Hosting over a Website Builder.
    With cPanel Hosting, you can host unlimited sites on 1 eHost account.

    There are many excellent WordPress themes today that include drag and drop site building tools. So it just doesn’t make sense to me to use any Website Builder instead of using WordPress. Website Builders are walled-gardens… closed systems… WordPress is open and flexible to do anything you could ever need.

    Hi Kiley, what a frustration situation that is! I feel for ya, definitely. Honestly though, that GoDaddy system is either a 3rd party cart software or it’s their own proprietary GoDaddy-branded ecommerce system. So the answer is no, eHost wouldn’t have the same thing as you used to have with GoDaddy.

    My recommendation for you would be to set up a WordPress site and get a theme designed for car dealers, for example, and then you can show your RV inventory on there in a beautiful interface.

    I hope that helps!

    Hi Sherry, great question – for a blog, I would use their cPanel Hosting and use the automatic WordPress installer in your account. WordPress is free as it’s open source. The only other thing you would possibly need to purchase is a premium WordPress theme, if you happen to find one you fall in love with and it costs $29 for example. With that said, there are thousands of free wordpress themes available to browse through.

    Hi Jonathan, great question. The site builder is a completely separate thing, and that’s why it’s a separate type of account you purchase in eHost. Just like any other website builder platform, there is no separate cPanel backend. The website builder platform is its own standalone entity. If you only want to set up emails, maybe you can use Google Apps Gmail for that. If you want to do more, I would cancel your website builder account and get a cPanel account.

    Hi Armando, I recommend the cPanel hosting, personally. This is because I much prefer a more flexible and powerful platform – WordPress. If I were you, I would cancel my website builder account and get a refund since you’re within the money-back guarantee period. Then buy a cPanel hosting account and host however many websites you want to on that account.

    Hi David, eHost is a hosting company, so they don’t offer specific services like a private members area. That is something you would add as part of your website. There are many good solutions online for setting up a private members area. For example, if you use WordPress to make your website (which I highly recommend), you can find free and paid plugins to create a private members area on your site. Good luck!

    Hi Anu, that sounds like a big project. Do you have much traffic yet? Is your code optimized well enough to not use unnecessary CPU and RAM? I think if you invested in developing such a project, you would benefit from researching into VPS hosting options as well. Hosts like eHost may be much more affordable…however that is because it’s shared hosting, and it’s really meant more as an entry level so new web entrepreneurs don’t need to spend unnecessary funds for more hosting than they need.

    Todd, you are correct – Any website builder product/company is something 100% separate from WordPress and is not compatible with WordPress or any 3rd party products. Same situation with eHost. So if you want to use WordPress (which I highly recommend over website builder), and you want a nice theme, then you should check out ThemeForest, Elegant Themes and other theme shops that have tons of incredibly beautiful, customizable, feature-filled themes.

There is no hands-off service that will get you any results.

    If you use eHost’s cPanel Hosting and launch your site with WordPress, your site will already be optimized pretty well. You should use the free plugin, WordPress SEO by Yoast to maximize your site’s optimization automatically. 🙂

    Hi Denise 🙂 Oh no! That is a widespread problem with WIX at this point.
    However, have you heard that Google is working to fix the problem?
    http://searchengineland.com/google-working-on-fixing-problem-with-wix-web-sites-not-showing-up-in-search-results-233310

    There are no issues with eHost’s Website Builder as it doesn’t create sites that work the same way WIX does. WIX is very AJAX/Javascript heavy and may cause issues for Google to index properly. WIX even used to be flash-only for years until they finally moved forward from that since it was holding back their customers having full flash sites.

    You can switch your domain over to eHost easily. However, you’d need to remake your site, as WIX is a platform that makes websites that only work on WIX.

    Great question and thanks for sharing that instead of just leaving. I do mention some negatives but maybe they’re on other pages.
    For example, many are frustrated because they aren’t sure if they want to use the website builder or not, but they can’t preview the templates and the site builder unless they’ve already signed up. It doesn’t make sense and I’ve said I think eHost would sell many more accounts if they let us preview templates before we have to pay.
    Another downside is that they don’t offer other hosting types for you to upgrade to if the need ever arises, such as a dedicated server.
    Lastly, they don’t offer a service to transfer your site from another host to their hosting. Not even if you are willing to pay. They may in the future. For now, that is a challenge for some.

    Hi Barb, I was confused as well, since it seemed to work that way for me. But I wanted to make extra sure about it, so I contacted their support staff and was told that we must contact customer support to get the cancellation and refund, and then sign up again for whichever plan we wanted. I tested this out last week and was surprised that they were able to quickly process that for me over the live chat support. I have to say, their live chat support is really different from other companies I’ve reviewed. You get to talk to an actual intelligent human being who listens and helps haha! Maybe Comcast should learn from them? Anyway, they DID tell me that they’re working on solving this annoyance, so sometime in the future, it will be like I first said.

That is a powerful, flexible setup that’s great for intermediate to advanced people, and if you ever aren’t sure about something, there’s so much help from people on YouTube in the realm of eCommerce site setup and marketing/growth. I recommend Stripe for credit card payments (which you can easily connect to your ecommmerce site on WordPress), and of course you can accept paypal too, but we both know PayPal isn’t ideal as an only option.

    Hi Bev, I checked and here’s how it breaks down:
    If you sign up for a month-to-month plan, the 50% discount ends after the first month.
    If you sign up for a 1 year plan, the 50% discount ends after the first year.

    EDIT/UPDATE: eHost has removed their month-to-month payment option, so now you have to pay at least 1 year up front, and 3 years up front to get the advertised $2.75/mo pricing. If you’re looking to a great hosting provider with a month-to-month option, check out HostGator and be sure that if you sign up, you use promo code BUILDPATH at checkout to save 60% (way cheaper than the standard pricing)

    Hi Nancy 🙂 Yes, you can model your own website off of his, meaning do a similar design and style. However, I wouldn’t recommend just copying his site code and everything, then changing the content/info on there. I’m sure he wouldn’t appreciate it. There are people who do that and when I started out long ago, I did some stuff like that as part of my learning process.

    If you want something that looks similar to what he did, try searching around One-Pager themes ThemeForest.net and see if there’s anything you like on there. Most themes cost maybe $50 but it’s way cheaper than hiring a web designer.

    To be honest though, you could do something really similar to BrettCook.info using the Website Builder

    Hi Mitch! Here’s a good guide on how that’s done. It’s kinda complicated but once you’ve done it the first time, it’s a breeze if you ever add more users.

    I imagine it would display prices in CAD when you get to the sign up page.

    Doctor Mazibuko, I agree with you. I think eHost would sell more accounts if they let us preview all the templates before we sign up.

    Chris, I couldn’t ask for a nicer comment. It’s pretty obvious that I’m an affiliate of eHost, however, I’m glad you can see I actually care, and I want to provide the best possible info so you can quickly know what’s best for your needs.

    I think I replied to your comment on YouTube about the blank templates – however I will reply here again in case I am just imagining things:

    Hopefully I can get a blank templates video up before Wednesday this coming week. However, just from the way you talk, I bet WordPress is the best way to go for you, so if you do choose eHost, I’d use the cPanel Hosting and set up WordPress on there. No website builder could ever be as flexible and “customizable” as WordPress.

    Just wanted to confirm here I received your email last month and sent you some themes. Thanks for the nice message!

    I have to say I agree with you. It’s great that you get two options with eHost (cpanel hosting or website builder), however they should make it clear that email is not part of the website builder functionality.

    For future reference, I personally use Google Apps GMail for all my website email addresses. So I get good ol’ reliable GMail, just with my own domain like [email protected]. You just set up the Google account and then add the MX records to your domain name’s DNS.

    It’s not a workaround because of a hosting company – it’s just a choice I made since I wanted the most reliable email platform with maximum deliverability.

    Thanks for the kind words, Emunot. I’m glad the review was helpful. I think it’s getting a bit crowded and I may need to organize the information better. I will keep working to improve it.

    Billie-Bob,

    1. eHost does not sell ad space on your site. You have 100% control over your entire site, whether you use the website builder or not. I would never recommend a company who messes with their customers’ sites like that.

    2. This is an important question, because many web hosts DO do that kinda bait and switch thing. It’s something all of us worry about when we’re checking out any hosting provider. eHost doesn’t do any of that funny business. That, plus their very current infrastructure and user interface are what make me like them.

    Regarding the website builder and templates, the website builder is part of your account, and the templates are included with it at no extra cost, forever.

    3. Yes they’re a US company, so assuming you’re in the US, you will not be paying exchange rates or foreign transaction fees.
