Network Solutions Hosting

Professional Plus

Server Hard Drive type = HDD (hard disk drive, which is the older and slower type) Phone support did not know what SSD drives were and when I explained, they said Yes, that’s what they have, but as it turns out, no, they actually have HDD.

Storage Space = 300 Gigabytes ( You will only need about 1 or 2)

Traffic = Unmetered

Free Domain Registration for life = Unknown – Not covered on website and phone support didn’t know. There is a free registration on signup but nothing says whether it stays free in years after which means it most likely does not.

Full cPanel (this is the server software) = NO.  Phone support misled me by saying they do but upon further research, it turns out they only offer their own version of a “cPanel like” control panel which has far fewer options and is considered remarkably unintuitive and limiting.

CPU Cores (Server processing unit.  Affects processing speed.) = Unknown.  Phone support didn’t know what I was talking about and could not find any information regarding this.

RAM (Server memory. Affects speed.)  = Unknown.  After explaining what I meant, phone support said it was “unlimited” but that’s not how servers work.  I explained that a server has a certain amount of RAM and that “unlimited” wasn’t relevant to the question.  He couldn’t find actual information about this.

Security = Security is provided through SiteLock security for an additional fee.  Basic security, malware scans, anti-ddos and common hack prevention. No security seems to be included with actual hosting, must use SiteLock.

Softaculous applications = 28

Free SSL = No.  SSL certificate is an additional monthly fee which is part of the overall monthly cost quoted below.

Free Cloudflare CDN = Unknown.

Cost = $32.93 per month (Premum hosting $15.95 per month + SSL certificate $9.99 per month + SiteLock Premium Security Service $6.99 per month)

Network Solutions does not provide any server or plan specifications beyond a few bare facts on their website (I really tried to find them too).  The below site has provided some of these details and others were provided by my calling Network Solutions and posing as a possible customer.
