Lunarpages VS eBoundhost

Lunarpages VS eBoundhost

Both Lunarpages and eBoundhost have something just a bit different to offer their clients. This, by itself, sets the two hosting companies slightly apart from the rest of the web hosting provider crowd. The end result though shows that having a wider variety of hosting choices and support options will make your choice a bit easier.

At just $3.95 a month, eBoundhost gives their web hosting clients unlimited website hosting, unmetered storage, and transfer all bundled up with a 90 day money back guarantee. Additionally, the company offers 3 VPS (virtual private server) accounts, a dedicated server option and offers an affiliate program. Lunarpages offers a huge array of web hosting accounts (as low as $2.95 a month including 5 gigabytes of both storage and bandwidth), Linux and Windows based VPS accounts, and also offers an affiliate program for its customers.

Products and Services

If you’re looking for a variety of web hosting packages, Lunarpages comes out ahead in this department. Included in all of their five different hosting accounts are PHP support, Python support, customizable error pages, customer account pages and more. eBoundhost only offers the one web hosting account and it includes several free scripts to choose from (WordPress, phpBB2 and Ikonboard to name a few), free SEO consultation and search engine submission, PHP 4/5 support and much more. Both companies offer VPS (virtual private server) plans with Lunarpages offering both Linux and Windows operated servers. Both companies also utilize Parallels Plesk as a control panel for their dedicated and virtual hosting accounts. eBoundhost allows their clients to choose from Plesk or cPanel/WHM within web hosting accounts. Lunarpages also offers two e-mail hosting plans – mini-mail and mega-mail. Lunarpages clearly has a more options available for your web hosting or e-mail hosting needs.

Lunarpages also has the interesting offer of tremenDesk – a fully-featured help desk solution. eBoundhost does not offer a lot in extra software with the exception of $50 towards advertising on Yahoo. However, the company does offer web designer services and a To Do task organizer – a simple and easy to use program available from any PC. Both companies have interesting extra features and offers. Lunarpages comes out on top, though, with its bonus software.

Customer Service

When it comes to available support options, Lunarpages has much more to offer. FAQs, online tutorials, a knowledge base, ticket support as well as email and telephone support are just a few avenues available. eBoundhost has an FAQ section, online manuals and an e-mail form available for contacting support. If having a larger array of support options available at your fingertips is important, Lunarpages will be the best choice in web hosting.

Recommendations

In the areas of options available for web hosting and support channels, not to mention a nice amount of free extra software, Lunarpages is clearly leaps and bounds ahead of eBoundhost.
