In-depth review and genuine feedback about Lunarpages Windows Shared Hosting Plan.
Before going to make any decision first of of look into the features offered by the company.
ASP 2.0 – 4.6-supports ASP version from ASP 2.0 – 4.6. As it was primarily windows server plan the hosting well supports both ASP classic and ASP.NET applications nicely.supports ASP.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 3.5, ASP.NET 4.0, ASP.NET 4.5 versions on the fly.
Database support-Lunar pages supports two kinds of database systems both MSSQL(The opensource database platform) and the
MSSQL 2012 (microsoft based SQL system).So there is an flexibility to customers to choose between these two database systems to use with their needs.Thats a one good point.
Unlimited MySQL Databases-The company offers unlimited number of mysql databases ,that means you can create unlimited number of mysql databases and use with your hosting plan.In the other hand the number of creating and using of mssql databases are limited.
IIS 8.5-Supports Internet Information Server version 8.5
PHP-Most of the windows server plans doesn’t support PHP language support but this company server supports PHP on this windows server.As you have already seen,the server comes with the mysql database support ,so you may have no issue of using the PHP as the front end and mysql as a backend database tool for creating future rich PHP applications.
Plesk Control Panel-Like other leading windows hosting companies lunar pages also offer pleskpanel as their control panel software to manage all the hosting controlling activities from one central place.Where you can easily manage your domains,databases,email accounts,redirection,software versions from one place.
Addon domain– Creating addon domain is limited with lunar pages windows hosting packages ,in the control panel you are allowed to create one free addon domain additionally to the primary domain on which the hosting account has been created.So as the user of the windows hosting package you can use only two domains maximum with purchase.That was very unfortunate for the hosting buyers.
Unlimited Resources-Even you have limited to use number of domains with your web hosting package there is some kind of relaxing news is ,these websites may use some unlimited resources like unlimited disk storage,unlimited monthly bandwidth ,sub domains and FTP accounts.
some of the other technologies supported by the package are MVC 3.0, Ajax, CGI, PERL
Supports both PHP and ASP
Supports both MYSql and MSSQL
Missing lot of windows applications supports
Only two domains can be used with hosting packages
If you want to host personal website based on windows hosting platform doesnt have much expectation just want peaceful hosting means you can try this,otherwise we say No!
