Shared hosting with namecheap allows you to host unlimited websites and email addresses for one seriously cheap price. I use “cheap” here not to describe the quality of the hosting plan, but rather the cost.
As its name implies, Namecheap has some of the most affordable shared hosting plans in the industry. I’ve been a customer with them since 2015, and I can only highly recommend Namecheap to you for your website or blog.
In this part of this tutorial series, I take you step-by-step through the process of buying a hosting package with Namecheap.
Namecheap Shared Hosting Is… Cheap
There are three options for shared hosting with Namecheap: Stellar, Stellar Plus, and Stellar Business. For most people, especially first time bloggers, Stellar Plus is going to be your best option. Although the Stellar shared hosting package is cheaper by $22/year after the promotional period, it’s limited in storage space to just 20 GB. On the other hand, the Stellar Business shared hosting plan is almost twice the price of Stellar Plus, and also limits disk space to 50 GB.
The perfect, happy medium is the Staller Plus unlimited shared hosting plan where you can host an unlimited number of websites.
Regardless of what plan you pick with Namecheap, you will get a fantastic deal. See for yourself how the price of Namecheap unlimited shared hosting compares to similar plans.
- DreamHost: $9.95/month
- GoDaddy: $10.99/month
- BlueHost: $10.99/month
- Namecheap: $4.88/month
I personally tried out all of the above shared hosting providers at some point the past. Not only is Namecheap the cheapest, but I find their interface and customer service unmatched.
All Namecheap shared hosting packages come with unmetered bandwidth. While some website hosting providers charge you by the gigabyte for the traffic coming to your website, Namecheap does not. In other words, if you have hundreds of thousands of visitors coming to your website, the price you pay to host your website remains the same. You won’t ever pay more when your traffic increases with shared hosting.
