Over the past few years, Register.com has made a name for itself as the leading webhosting service provider. With more than two and a half million domains currently being managed, they have established themselves pretty well, amongst the plethora of services they provide some of the major ones are domain name registration, web management services and web design services. It was a singular company functioning on its own but recently web.com has acquired it, aiming to provide their customers with hosting space and much more flexibility. Enabling their customers, Register.com allows their customer to build dynamic websites with much prior technological knowledge. Backed by an always available customer support, Register.com provides with a multitude of options to choose from.

Unlike others, Register.com provides you with guidance as to which plan would be better for you. Now, they offer three plans basically, they are Essential Hosting, Professional Hosting & Premium Hosting. Charging you at exact $9.96 per month, Register.com provides you with the Essential Hosting plan. You get 300GB Storage space, Unlimited Data Transfer, 25 FTP accounts, 10 Multiuser email boxes and one free domain name. With the Professional Hosting plan you are charged $13.29 per month you get everything supplemented by some value. With the Premium Hosting account, you get everything unlimited supplemented by 25 FTP accounts and a free domain name.
Claiming to provide with fast and reliable web hosting services, Register.com has left many clients leaving mixed reviews on various platforms. Many cases have been reported where users have found their servers infected with malicious pieces of code, which ultimately led to a Google banning their websites. It has been claimed as false but it is ignorance. Moreover, people have been very disturbed by the plethora of their spam in the mailbox. While some say negative about it, there are people on different platforms praising their services as the best. Some individuals even have 5 domains registered with them and say that their services are flawless. Register.com itself boasts a 24/7 uptime and very robust customer service, so their customers shouldn’t face any problems.
CONTROL PANEL INFORMATION
This is the area where Register.com lacks a lot. Unlike many others it doesn’t provide with the cPanel control panel. Now this is kind of confusing again, some customers have reported it to be very hard to use while some praise it being very user friendly. It is very hard to integrate any kind of shopping cart into it, given all that, most of the server access features are available at Hosting.com. Now they offer some of the best services for the basic features when compared to others but when it comes to expansion, it all gets too messed up and very hard to use. The data on the servers is constantly backed up so as to provide with constant insurance in case of any issue.
Register.com boasts a very professional and highly qualified team for customer support. It doesn’t matter if you have acquired the basic plan or the premium plan, their customer support teams are always available to guide you through all and any issues your face. They can be reached throughout the year anytime through phone and email. Simply put when you are in need of any assistance you’ll get expert advice from people who will get your website up and running in no time.
MONEY BACK GUARRANTEE
Generally, Register.com offers a 30 day money back guarantee. There are several other policies they enact upon in certain cases. Like refund on the domain name registration. If you are not happy with the name you just registered, you can have all your money back within 5 days. Similarly they offer a full refund, before you consult any call center representative with any issue. In any other case, if you are not satisfied with the services provided you can cancel at any time, and if that time occurs during the first thirty days, you get a full refund.
In conclusion, Register.com is a very decent option if you want to just upload a simple website and run it with minor modifications from time to time. That being said, if you want to go for something a little bit more technical, or a little bit more technical support then you will be facing a lot of issues. Even though the premium packages provide you with a lot of features, but they lack the key fundamentals, and there are times that you might find discrimination between you and some other customer who bought a more pricy package than you did. So simply put Register.com is a fairly decent option.
