I’ve found a new interesting hosting company besides DreamHost that I’ve mentioned some time ago. The new company (actually the company is not new, but available on the hosting market for 10 years now) is called Certified Hosting and it has some quite attractive offers for all your hosting needs. And unlike with DreamHost, here you can start with a shared hosting and then when your needs grow over time to even upgrade to a pre-configured dedicated server or even configure your own. And thin month the company is celebrating it’s 10-th anniversary so there are even some very good promotions you can use to get nice discounts on most of their hosting plans and solutions…


Now you are probably going to start with the way more affordable shared hosting solutions being offered by Certified Hosting and they come in three different flavors called: DORK, GEEK and NERD. The prices below are for payments on a monthly basis, if you pay for a year or two ahead you can get quite nice discounts and you should definitely do that.

– The DORK hosting is the cheapest at $8.95 per month, but allows you to host only 1 domain on it. Of course you get unlimited monthly bandwidth and storage space, but the CPU time you can use with your website is still limited and when your blog or website gets really popular you’ll have to upgrade.

– The GEEK plan is a bit more expensive at $9.95 per month, but also gives you the ability to host unlimited number of websites along with the normal unlimited bandwidth and hosting space. Again limited CPU time usage on the server so even if you host a lot of less popular websites or blogs their combined load on the server may reach the limit and you’ll need to upgrade.

– The NERD shared hosting plan is the top one that will cost you $14.95 per month. It is like the GEEK plan, but with an additional dedicated IP address and a private SSL certificate to access your blog over a secure web connection. You can also setup an anonymous FTP account only in this hosting plan.

Besides the unlimited bandwidth and space you get the above three shared hosting plans also come with unlimited FTP accounts, POP3 and IMAP emails, email forwarders and autoresponders, unlimited parked domains, subdomains and MySQL databases. You also get CGI-BIN and SSI (Server Side Includes) support, Frontpage Extensions, PHP 5, Ruby on Rails (RoR), Perl, Python, Image Magik, SSH Access, Spam Assassin Protection, Web File Manager, Cpanel Control Panel and much more. That combined with a great uptime, support and a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee definitely makes Certified Hosting a great place to host your blogs and websites.

The dedicated server hosting solutions start from $99 a month and scale up depending on the hardware resources you’ll be needing, but that will be needed only when your blog becomes very popular and receives thousands of visitors per day. You can pay for your shared and dedicated hosting at Certified Hosting with any major credit card or trough PayPal or Google Checkout.
