The prices Omnis Network offers for their services are mid range. They offer shared, VPS and dedicated hosting. Their hosting plans are available on Windows and Linux, but Windows based hosting plans cost substantially more. Their web hosting plans are divided into a Linux package that costs $5.95 a month, while the Windows one costs more – $7.95.
Their VPS plans offer a Basic, Plus and Premium package. The Basic package includes 50GB of disk space, 500GB of bandwidth and 512MB of RAM. The Plus Plan includes 75 GB of disk space, 750GB of bandwidth and 1024MB of RAM. The Premium package includes 100GB disk space, 1000GB of bandwidth and 1536MB of RAM. The Linux based versions cost $15, $25 and $45 a month, while the Windows based versions cost $25, $40 and $60 a month and have less disk space and RAM per plan.
Their dedicated hosting plans offer In-stock servers, Premium servers and previous generation servers that are available at discounted prices. The In-stock servers are used for quick deployment and their prices range from $117,60 to $137,50 and include 6TB data transfer each. Their Premium servers are customizable and the prices start at $173 a month and can climb up quite quickly with all the options that can be added to the server. You can choose which processor you would like (Intel Xeon E3-1230/1240/1270/1280), between 8 and 16 GB of RAM, regular or SSD drives (1/2/3 TB regular drives or 80/120GB SSD drives) and you can also add more hard drives. You can choose whether or not you wish to have a RAID controller and how much bandwidth you need. You also have the ability to choose IPv4 and IPv6 assignments and what operating system you would like, as well as which control panel you want.
The Omnis Network data center is located in Tempe, Arizona and has two Tier 1 ISP providers who manage their whole network. They use Cisco for their network hardware and also provide SSD RAID array with dual, quad core and hyper threaded Intel Xeon processors, and their center is backed up by UPS and diesel generators, so you don’t have to worry about them going down in case of power outages; they will keep running.
CONTROL PANEL INFORMATION
There is only scarce information available about the Omnis Network control panel; they refer to their control panel as “Account Manager”. The layout of the manager is clean and nice, but lacks all the regular management tools of cPanel, the current market standard.
Users who purchase VPS or dedicated hosting packages have cPanel available, however.
The Omnis Network support staff is US based and available via email, live chat or phone 24 hours a day. Their knowledge base includes “How to” articles, video tutorials and FAQ, as well as a list of common issues that may arise, which is quite good, especially for those who are new to hosting and wish to learn a little before they start.
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
Omnis Network offers a 30 day money back guarantee. In order to get the refund, the customer has to ask their support for cancellation. The cancellation is immediate.
Omnis Network would be a good pick for experienced users. Their benefits include a good customer support, speed, reliability and inbound, US based technicians. There are certain disadvantages too, however: their prices are mid range; you can easily find hosting companies that will offer the same for lower prices. They also don’t offer a cPanel, which is a very big disadvantage. They also charge extra for many features that are usually provided free by other companies.
Paying extra for a site builder and other features isn’t really novice friendly, but they are still a good pick for more experienced users who know exactly how to utilize what they have at their disposal.
