Netmoly Review Summary
Netmoly is a rather exclusive web hosting provider that prides itself on using top-of-the line equipment to offer customers the best results. Unfortunately, this has resulted in them trimming a few expected features and having a price that that's a little higher than the norm for shared hosting.
- Unmetered bandwidth
- 99.9% Uptime guarantee
- Drag-and-drop website builder
- Limited storage space
- Relatively high prices
- No free domain name
- US-only data center
- No auto-setup for free SSL
Editor's Review & Recommendation
As always, prices always tend to follow a hosting provider's operational cost and Netmoly charges premium fees for what it claims to be 'extraordinary quality'. This is coupled with the lack of some features that can be had at lower rates elsewhere. For example, while they offer free SSL certificates, you'll have to fork out extra for a domain name on your own.
Other areas that play a balancing act are harder to justify such as the very limited storage space provided with Netmoly's hosting plans. Prices for storage, even on SSD, have dropped through the floor and we have no idea where Netmoly would scrimp on this. At a guess, Netmoly might be trying to discourage customers from using their servers are file storage space and focus on website files only.
Even more unusual is the almost complete lack of developer support since this wouldn't have cost the company much to implement, especially given how powerful they claim their equipment to be. They do allow cron jobs and support Perl along with Ruby on Rails, but little else of real value for developers.
If you think their shared hosting plans are expensive, rest assured that their VPS plans similarly cost an eye-raising amount as well. They start at $75 per month and for that price you still get only a middling amount of resources. VPS plans start off with a measly 2GB of RAM and come not only with restricted storage but bandwidth as well.
Round this off with a limited 45-day money-back guarantee and it can be pretty difficult to justify an account here even for business accounts. All plans with Netmoly are only available via a single US-based data center.
