EasyCGI offers many levels and varieties of hosting options. The only drawback is that it is all on the Windows platform. This is not to say that the Windows hosting environment is inferior to Linux/Unix, but rather it would have been nice to have that option. On the plus side, this does allow EasyCGI to provide distinct services and target a specific market.
Pricing for EasyCGI’s shared hosting plans are slightly better than other web hosting providers that offer Windows hosting so there is some savings there. Plus, with all the features that come included, I would say it was a bargain. Currently, other web hosting providers are offering a free domain name registration with a hosting purchase but EasyCGI doesn’t have that included on any of their plans.
Additional features that EasyCGI includes with each hosting plan is not like other web hosting providers. EasyCGI is a business web hosting provider so you will see things like ecommerce scripts and resources that are geared towards adding features that will support business needs.
For those that need a bit more control over their hosting such as script management and access control, EasyCGI offers virtual/dedicated servers. With their own servers, customers can create their own hosting packages to use for their clients or support their entire website and extras on their own. No need to go out and buy your own where costs can be substantial. With EasyCGI servers, all the technical stuff is taken care of and you can just concentrate on running your website.
Overall, EasyCGI offers great Windows web hosting platform that meets the needs of any size business or ecommerce site. If you specifically need a Windows environment for your web hosting, then EasyCGI should be your first choice in web hosting.
