I know many of you are keeping the midnight oil burning, and cranking out websites on the fly. Forums, blogs, ecommerce sites, you name it. Well here is a nice little gem to help you crank them out even faster, Site Valley.
Site Valley has been around since 2001, and if you are looking for one of the best cheap web hosting sites to crank out sites fast you may have just found it. Site Valley supports shared, VPS, and dedicated servers. You may have heard of them for their cheap VPS hosting, but what they should really be known for is their shared hosting plans.
Killer Rates for Shared Hosting
Rates? I meant rate. Were talking just $3.95 a month, and that includes your domain registration on their shared hosting plans. This does, however, require a two year commitment. Now forget the cost, and see how this can be great for those of you that develop tons of sites.
Being that time is the real issue here, the first advantage is that you can set up your domain and server in one step. No DNS forwarding, waiting, and confirmation junk. Time saved? Potentially days. Another big time saver? No setting up software. Site Valley’s shared hosting plans come installed with PHPBBs, WordPress, Coppermine Gallery, and OSCommerce. Setting up WordPress is easy enough, but bulletin boards can be a total pain, and ecommerce software is usually just another out of pocket cost. Low rates, low time investment, picking a template could be the hardest part.
Support and Hosting Details
Digging into the details a little, Site Valley offers 24/7 support using a ticket method. Their shared hosts offer unlimited storage and bandwidth, with 100 emails. Their VPS plans are broken down into three categories. The least expensive is VPS1 for $35 a month. This will give you 20 GB of storage, and 100 GB of monthly bandwidth. That’s more than enough for most sites. They also offer a few options for getting dedicated plans, but for most of us VPS should be fine.
