HostMonster VS eBoundhost

HostMonster VS eBoundhost

Finding an economical web host these days is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack of needles. There are plenty hosts out there with really great monthly fees but the real deals are ones that offer more than you were expecting for your money. eBoundhost and HostMonster both strive to do just that – offer low priced web hosting with premium hosting features.

Normally $6.95 a month, HostMonster is offering its web hosting accounts at only $5.95 per month. Each new account is filled with great features and options, charge-free when it comes to set up and there are no hidden charges. Free domain registration is also included with each account.

For two dollars less ($3.95 a month), eBoundhost offers its customers unlimited monthly data transfers, unlimited e-mail accounts and unlimited web space. All of this is offered with a 90 day money back guarantee if you are unsatisfied.

Products and Services

In addition to web hosting accounts, eBoundhost offers VPS accounts (Virtual Private Server), dedicated servers and an affiliate program. As they do offer more than just web hosting, affiliates can earn anywhere from $100 to $300, depending on what type of product was referred. This is an excellent affiliate payback system.

HostMonster also offers an affiliate program in addition to its standard hosting accounts. For each referral, the company pays out $65.00. Each affiliate also has access to an administration center that allows for tracking of links and banners, commission payouts and the ability to download a personalized tracking code.

Web Hosting Features

HostMonster web hosting accounts offer unlimited web hosting space, hosted domains and bandwidth. The bonus features included with each hosting account give you access to such programs as b2evolution, Moodle, social networking programs and much more. PHP 5, Ruby and Python are all included in each account. HostMonster also gives its customers great e-commerce and multimedia features. If this isn’t enough, toss in a free search engine site submission and $50 towards Google advertising and you’ve got a great hosting deal.

WordPress, Gallery, phpBB2, and osCommerce are all scripts you can choose to install with your web hosting account at eBoundhost. New features added to all web hosting accounts include unmetered transfer, mailboxes, storage and web sites per account. RoR (Ruby on Rails), PHP 4 and 5, and Python are all standard within each account. You can also expect a free search engine site submission with eBoundhost as well as $50 for Yahoo advertising.

Customer Service

HostMonster has combined all of its support options into one easily accessible help center. Whether you need to submit a support ticket, browse the knowledge base or check out a wizard or tutorial, you can do so from one convenient location. Server status and a user forum are also available. If you need immediate and more personalized assistance, HostMonster offers 24×7 toll-free telephone support and a live chat button for your convenience.

eBoundhost also has a help center available for its customers, though it isn’t as full as HostMonster. You can peruse their online FAQs, read their online manuals or utilize the e-mail form for contacting support. The hosting company also offers 24×7 support not only on site but reachable by phone.


Both companies have really great offers. However, it seems that with a reduced price, you lose out a bit in customer support with eBoundhost. The recommendation in this comparison is with HostMonster.
