HostMonster VS Omnis

Omnis’ Award winning web hosting site or HostMonster’s world class 24/7 support? Each company bring something extra to the table. Choosing which company will be your business’ newest web host is simply a matter of checking considering the details.

Pricing

If you choose to select Omnis’ two year prepaid package, your monthly hosting fee can start out as low as $5.95 a month. Though this is a higher initial output, you end up saving quite a bit in the long run. If you’re not satisfied, the company offers a 30 day money back guarantee. Choosing the two year prepaid route places the monthly fee in the same range as HostMonster.

HostMonster is currently running a special promotion price of $5.95 for its monthly web hosting. Normally a dollar more a month, the company offers free set-up, a domain with each account and doesn’t not lock you into a long term contract (meaning you can cancel at any time). Even if you paid the extra dollar each month, it seems as though HostMonster gives the better deal when it comes to pricing.

Products and Services

Opting for simplicity rather than tons of hosting and server options, HostMonster offers one hosting option to choose from and an affiliate program that pays its referrers $65 for each new account that signs up with the company. Sometimes less is more as, instead of concentrating on many different products, HostMonster can place a more concentrated level of assistance to its web hosting customers.

Omnis offers both Windows and Linux platformed web hosting accounts, domain name registration, “do it yourself” web design services and professional assistance with web design and a nice affiliate program as well. Each referred account garners Omnis affiliates a $75 payout. Both companies have restricted the number of services offered which can greatly improve customer support.

Web Hosting Features

If you are in need of many unlimited features, Omnis can deliver. Disk space, email accounts, sub-domains, hosted domains and more – all unlimited amounts. For your scripting needs, Omnis provides support for PHP 4 and 5, ASP, Perl and more. If you choose the company’s Linux based hosting account, you’ll also have access to over thirty easy to install scripts including Drupal, Phorum, osCommerce and many more. Omnis provides a customized control panel for its customers, ensuring easy administration of your web site.

Not to be outdone in the unlimited features department, HostMonster loads each of its hosting accounts with unlimited bandwidth, hosted domains and space for starters. Each account has access to some greats scripts for installation as well – you can choose from WordPress or Drupal, incorporate social networking tools or even install a bulletin board program. Support for scripting is handled as well with PHP 5, Perl 5, Python and Ruby on Rails all installed. HostMonster has cPanel set for each customer allowing for easy web administration.

Customer Service

HostMonster’s Help Center is the centralized location for ticket support, video tutorials, wizards and more. You can also contact the company 24×7 at their listed toll-free number. If a quick and live solution is more to your liking, HostMonster also has a Live Chat button at your disposal.

Omnis also offers a live chat option and a 24 hour support line you can call toll-free. Within their “contact us” section of the site, the company offers several email addresses and a contact form if you prefer email support.

Recommendations

Economical pricing and a lot of features for your money. Both companies offer nearly the same deal. If being locked into a long-term contract isn’t for you and your business, the recommendation is to host with HostMonster. If a few more support options looks more enticing, again the winner in this comparison is HostMonster.
