1 Dollar Hosting Plan and prices
$1 Web Hosting – Frequently Asked Questions
What if I want more than one Website?
The easiest option is to 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 sites to your $1 hosting plan for $0.25/mo or $2/year.
Alternatively, add more $1 Hosting plans to your account. This has the advantage that each website has its own resources. If you find that one website needs to run faster or gets a lot of visitors, you can upgrade that one website to our High Performance Plan.
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 allows you to choose from hundreds of free templates.
Your site will also be “responsive,” which means it will work on computers as well as smartphones 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 Workspace for Business, cWatch – 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?
Please keep in mind that your website content and email will NOT be transferred to our servers automatically. Contact our support team if you are unsure how to backup your old site or need help.
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 an excellent choice for a new business website.
You can use one of our Website builders to start your Business site or online store quickly.
Our $1 hosting plan also works well with any 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 or high-performance plan.
Those plans 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).
Twenty-four hours after we have activated your account, we will automatically install your free SSL certificate.
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 any time later on.
Do I get PHP with this hosting plan?
Yes, we include PHP 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, our $1 hosting plan is optimized to run WordPress. You can install it with a couple of clicks using our App installer.
