Globat Host Review
(The following is an in-depth host review on the company Globat)
Company Description
Globat is one of the first companies who began offering cheap web hosting online back in 1998. Formerly icom.com, which was sold to Interland, the company has been involved in the industry since 1995. In the last two years Globat has grown substantially, mainly due to doubling their disk space allotment and increasing monthly bandwidth usage. Globat is generally known for their team of friendly customer service reps.
Hosting Costs
For $4.95 a month, Globat offers an entire 5000 MB of disk space, 75 GB of bandwidth, 5000 POP3 e-mails, with support for PHP, PERL, MySQL, and more. Very few, and I mean very few users will actually use this much disk space. Unless you have a web site that has a large amount of video files, you're not likely to use this much space -- ever. A free domain name is available to customers who purchase a full year of hosting, and a 30-day-money-back guarantee is also available. Also, prepaying for one full year (suggested) will get you an additional free month of hosting.
Customer Service
Globat's self-help section is very impressive. The section features presales questions, help on getting started (with links to download an FTP program of your choice), many Flash video tutorials, frequently asked questions, and the option of using live chat help. Globat also offers a toll-free telephone number, and responses to e-mails are dealt with on the same day they are sent.
Control Panel
Globat has developed their own control panel called the Globat "Command Console", which makes it very easy for you to check e-mail, access databases, view traffic levels and usage statistics, password protect directories, and more. The console has an easy-to-use graphical interface that may prove to help the beginner webmaster.
Data Center
Globat currently has two data centers in California. The first center in Los Angeles is also used by such giants as Google, Yahoo!, and IBM. The other center in Marina Del Rey provides DNS and e-mail redundancy. Both centers are equipped with advanced security measures to ensure your site is protected.
Closing Argument
Globat is a well respected company and although their plans seem almost too good to be true, they are not. Globat offers these plans primarily for marketing purposes, and is aware that most users will not use this much disk space in their lifetime. However, don't let that fool you into thinking Globat isn't a legitimate host. They are in fact a great host to do business with, as they have reliable support features, and excellent uptime. Globat gets a thumbs-up in our books.
