Shared Hosting FAQ.

Are you a master/alpha/reseller of some other company?
NO. We are not a reseller of some other company. We manage our servers with root access. You really don't need to worry that you are with a middleman without any knowledge of hosting industry.

I made my payment, But did not receive my instant hosting account information, What to do?
All shared hosting accounts will be created and details will be emailed to the customer instantly after making your payment. You will recieve your hosting account information within a maximum of 5 minutes in your E-Mail.

But, some email providers like gmail, yahoo etc may forward our emails to Bulk mail Or Spam folder instead of your Inbox. Please check them to get our emails.

Another way of getting all copies of emails we send is, login to our client area and Go to "My Emails" link to see all Emails we sent you from our billing system.

Also, please store our email id's expertwebhost(at)gmail.com, sales(at)clients.expertwebhost.net and support(at)clients.expertwebhost.net in your contact list which makes sure that all our Email messages are delivered directly to your Inbox.

Others are offering unlimited space for $1?
We agree that many hosting providers offer huge storage and bandwidth for $1. But, you'll also know that those hosting companies will disappear in a few months or an year. Or you'll never get the promised uptime, support, reliability and connectivity. Just search on google for feedback on those companies and you'll know that they are terrible hosting companies, and you'll know it after you made your payment!!

How much time is required to create my hosting account?
All hosting accounts are created instantly after you made your payment. You'll get your hosting account information e-mail within minutes after your payment. If you did not get in your inbox, please search in your spam folder. If it can't be found, please open a support request ticket in our client area.

Is your one dollar a month hosting reliable?
We are offering our 1 dollar month hosting plan from almost 3 years now(Started Feb 2008). We don't have any plans to stop offering 1 dollar plan. We agree that we operate with minimum profit. But, we enjoy what we do and our hosting is one of the most reliable service available in the industry.

Just order your hosting plan and open a support ticket or Email us at expertwebhost(at)gmail.com to get our postal address to send your Bank Demand Draft.
