$1 Web Hosting Plan and prices

$1 Hosting – Frequently Asked Questions

What if I want more than one Website?

The easiest option is to simply add a new $1 Hosting plan to your account for every website you want to add.

If you want to save money and do not care about your websites sharing resources, you can add websites to your $1 hosting plan for $0.25/mo or $2/year.

Alternatively, you can just upgrade to our Unlimited Plan which will give you unlimited websites for your account.
Financially however, this only makes sense if you are planning on hosting at least 20 one dollar websites with us.
Otherwise it it cheaper to simply add $1 Hosting plans to your account.

Does your $1 Hosting plan have a website builder included?

Yes, building a website with our $1 Hosting plan is very easy using our free Free website builder tool.
Optionally you can also choose to use Weebly as your website builder.
Each Website Builder comes with hundreds of free templates to choose from.
Your site will also be “responsive” which means it will work on computers as well as smart phones and tablets.
The Multi-language feature is included as well which allows you to run your website in multiple languages.

All this plus much more is INCLUDED in your $1 Hosting Plan.

Can I upgrade from my $1 Hosting plan after I signup?

Yes, once you signed up for the $1 Hosting plan you can upgrade to any other hosting plan of ours.
You will also be able to add/remove features to your $1 Hosting plan such as Google G Suite for BusinesscWatch – your own Cyber Security Center for your website. Node.JS hosting or even Ruby on Rails.

Can I transfer an existing domain name to use with the $1 hosting plan?

Yes! Transferring an existing domain name with HelpingHost.com is simple.  To start, when you choose the $1 hosting plan, you will be asked to “Choose a domain”. The option to transfer your domain name is “Transfer your domain from another registrar”.

It is important to ensure you back up all the data on your website as this will not be transferred when you transfer your domain name. (contact our support team if you are unsure how to backup your old site)
And that’s it!

Once you’ve completed this straightforward process it can take up to seven business days for the domain to transfer to us.
In the meantime you can start enjoying the benefits of your $1 hosting plan with a so called temporary URL right away.

Is your $1 Hosting plan a good choice for my Business website?

Our $1 Hosting Plan for sure is a good choice for a new business website.
You can simply use one of our Website builders to quickly start your Business site or online store.
Alternatively the $1 hosting plan will also work well to use a basic e-commerce software such as Magento E-Commerce, WordPress with WooCommerce, X-Cart, Zen-Cart or any other of the online store apps.

However, once your site starts to take off, you should upgrade from the $1 hosting plan to our e-commerce plan which will make your  site much faster which will ensure a better Google ranking and prevent customers from leaving your website without buying from you.

Will my website be secure? Will I get SSL?

Yes, we understand that Google Chrome now requires all websites to be secure (have an SSL certificate installed).

You will automatically get a free SSL certificate within 24 hours after your account has been activated.
From that point on your site will be secure and you can use https://.

We also offer higher end SSL certificates which you can add to your plan at anytime later on.

Do I get PHP with this hosting plan?

Yes, PHP is included in every hosting plan at no extra cost.
You can even choose the PHP version and PHP extensions for your website.

Can I use WordPress with my $1 hosting plan?

Yes, in fact, our $1 hosting plan is optimized to run WordPress. You can install it with a couple of clicks using our App installer.
