Reliability (5/5)

★★★★★

With its clustering technology firmly in place, web hosting clients can be assured that if one server experiences an issue and goes down, other servers will pick up the slack ensuring web sites experience no downtime. Gate.com’s servers are set with redundancy throughout, run on constant battery power and are housed in facilities that are equipped with FM200 fire systems. Access to the company’s infrastructure is protected by many layers of security and is monitored 24×7. All of this points to extremely reliable hosting and secure data.

Price Value (5/5)

★★★★★

Starting as low as $4.98 a month (when paid out yearly), web hosting with Gate.com includes unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth and unlimited email accounts. All accounts come with shell and ftp accounts and allow for subdirectory FTP accounts – all of which are unlimited in quantity. MySQL databases are included and are available in unlimited amounts as well. Accounts are PHP, Perl and Python enabled for any scripting needs. With the EasyScripts Installer available, hosting clients can choose from a variety of add-on scripts that include Joomla, Gallery2, Tikiwiki and more. Hosting customers also have the choice of being hosted on a Unix or Windows server, all for the same low price.

Control Panel (4/5)

★★★★☆

Gate.com uses SiteControl as its control panel. This control panel allows customers to view and update their information, set up ftp and shell accounts, and create email addresses. The unique characteristic of SiteControl is the ability for customers to be able to use this control panel no matter where they are. Customers need not be at their computer location to access the control panel – they can be anywhere, making administration just a web site away.

Customer Support (4/5)

★★★★☆

Support from Gate.com is available 24/7/365. Customers need only log into their control panel to get quick and easy access to help when they need it. Alternatively, the company offers toll-free phone support during the weekdays. Web hosting clients who are more hands-on when it comes to help can locate what they need through Gate.com’s customer forum or searchable knowledge base. The company is dedicated to giving its customers prompt and courteous customer support.

    I’m having allot of problems – Gate canceled my domain after I specifically asked them not to.
    I’m just getting started. If they fix this for me I will come back and post a positive note
