Roberto Sanchez,

Hosting Expert:

One.com is worth looking into if you want frills-free hosting — price point being a key pull factor. You tend to get what you pay for with low-cost shared hosting providers. That being said, One.com does offer a code-free website builder and unlimited email accounts, making their services pretty ideal for basic site-building needs or email hosting in particular.

“For no-mess, no-fuss website building, for affordable email hosting, or just to host a simple site or blog, One.com has some appealing options. From a cost standpoint, it's hard to beat hosting for a quarter per month, so pricing is certainly a big draw. As for the offerings themselves, you're not going to get as many "free" or all-inclusive/unlimited features as other providers; however, they cover the essentials.

All plans come with a free website builder, so you don't need an understanding of programming languages in order to get your basic website up quickly. Customers are allotted a single domain with the "Starter" and "Professional" packages, or multiple domains with the "Professional Plus" and "Business" plans, and the initial domain registration is yours at no cost for the first year.

An increasingly popular and sought-after hosting service is email hosting. This is where One.com can prove to be a real bargain. For 25 cents per month, you can get unlimited email accounts, which is perfect for those just looking to host their custom email address at their personalized domain, whether it be for business or personal use.

In general, the included features get better as the plan price rises (makes sense), so you can choose which package is best for you based on your minimum requirements for RAM, domains, storage, and processing power. If you're looking for a more intricate design (maybe WordPress-powered) and want more control over the customization, we'd recommend opting for at least the "Professional Plus" plan, which is only $3.50 per month. Both premium plans, "Professional Plus" and "Business," include multiple databases and you can host multiple domains, with SSH access for added security.

To wrap things up, One.com is a no-nonsense, you-get-what-you-pay-for web host, and a fine option for email hosting and putting together basic web projects. Their rates are competitive and they're certainly worth exploring, especially if you're a hosting newbie.”

“Affordability is a major selling point for One.com (which bodes well in the shared hosting space). They offer the bare essentials in domain and email hosting, as well as basic site building, at a cost that's hard to beat. Their pricing ranges from a quarter to a mere six bucks per month, with increased allowances for storage, CPUs, databases, and domains with each package upgrade. Your domain name registration is taken care of for the first year with all plans.

The real bargain to be had with One.com is their "Starter" package, particularly if you're looking for email hosting. This is their most basic plan and for three dollars you can host a single domain for a year, with unlimited email accounts at that domain and a free site builder to get a simple site launched quickly and easily.

All plans come with a free website builder and a minimum of 15 gigabytes of storage to get you started. If you're looking to build a more dynamic or interactive website, you should probably opt for a "pricier" package ($3.50/month compared to $0.25/month). For example, their "Professional Plus" plan is recommended for building a WordPress site, where WordPress can be added and installed in a single click within cPanel.

All in all, One.com is certainly a worthy contender for the cost-conscious hosting shopper. If you want the basic necessities for getting a simple web page up and running quickly, one of their highly affordable shared hosting plans will probably have you covered.”

“For WordPress hosting, it's hard to beat a 1-click installation, free domain name for a year, and a monthly bill ranging from a whopping 25 cents to a couple dollars. One.com is mostly built to help you construct basic web projects, but that doesn't mean you can't benefit from all the perks of the ever-popular WordPress. All One.com plans include cPanel, where you can not only manage your web applications, files, and databases, but you can install WordPress for free and be on your way to perfecting your WordPress site in minutes.

WordPress is one of our favorite blogging platforms, especially for hosting newbs to take advantage of, and One.com offers four plans to meet a variety of storage, domain, and CPU needs and help you get started with WordPress. We'd recommend going for the "Professional Plus" plan for WordPress hosting, where you'll get 200 gigabytes of storage, two gigabytes of RAM, multiple domains and databases, and plenty of processing power with SSL security and SSH access. You can also host your email at your domain(s) and add unlimited email accounts with POP3 and IMAP protection.

While One.com emphasizes stress-free hosting features like a free site builder, there's nothing stopping you from getting your hands dirty with PHP if you so choose. As you're customizing your WordPress site, you can hop on the command line and manipulate the server (which is monitored 24/7) directly via SSH access. If you're not that tech-savvy, no worries. These are merely flexibility options that are available, but not required, and the One.com team is available via live chat any time you need them.

For frills-free WordPress hosting that won't break the bank or overwhelm a first-timer, One.com is a fine choice. The features list is not as lengthy as those of competitors, and the support is not quite as readily-accessible, but the cost is hard to beat.”

“A main feature One.com offers on all of their shared hosting plans is a free website building tool. The idea of code-free website design is usually music to a first-time site owner's ears, and One.com recognizes this. They even throw in a 1-year domain name registration for free.

With One.com you're given a few options: design a basic site using their WYSIWYG site builder, install WordPress with one click via cPanel and blog from there, or get your hands dirty with code (PHP and MySQL). One.com strives for stress-free simplicity in the web hosting and site building process, so there's not a whole lot to their packages. You can, however, choose the plan that's best for you based on your requirements for storage, domains, databases, RAM, and processing power.

The thing to remember is that One.com is good for basic site building. Their specialties are domain and email hosting, where you can get unlimited email accounts, POP3 and IMAP support, and both virus and spam filtering for $0.25 per month. They offer free tools to help you build a website, but for assistance building a more customizable and dynamic web property, you may need to either upgrade to one of their premium plans or choose a web host with more varied features and support options.”

Features

(3.5 / 5.0)

Free Site Builder and 1-Click WordPress Installs

  • All One.com plans come with a free site builder, so you don't need to mess with coding or programming languages to design your site.
  • Hosting users will get a cPanel account, where they can log in to easily install WordPress with one click. Start with a site template of your choosing and customize from there.
  • Whether you're looking to blog, organize and display photos, or share other rich media, One.com can help you safely and easily host your ideas, images, and/or videos on the Web.

Unlimited Email with IMAP and POP3

  • A cornerstone of One.com's services is email hosting. Even their most basic and affordable plan includes unlimited email accounts.
  • You can opt for your choice of email program or use One.com's webmail platform and access your email from anywhere. Their webmail program includes an address book and calendar to help you stay synced and organized.
  • All email is supported by IMAP and POP3, and their plans include spam filtering and virus screening for added security.

Plenty of Transfer, Storage, and Databases

  • One.com allows for unlimited site transfer, which is also safer with SSL encryption.
  • Though programming know-how isn't necessary with One.com, you can code with PHP if you want to, and use MySQL to store information for a more dynamic website.
  • All files are protected during transfer via encrypted FTP connections. You can also take advantage of One.com's File Manager.

24/7 Support and Security

  • One.com's support team is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to help you with any troubleshooting matters. Send an email and receive a response within 24 hours, or communicate via the live chat support portal.
  • One.com's shared servers are monitored around the clock, which helps reduce downtime.
  • Securely execute commands to manipulate the server itself with SSH access, and transfer data to and from your site via SFTP.

One.com Review

As a no-mess, no-fuss domain and email hosting aficionado, One.com makes getting started with your domain really simple. You'll get a free domain name registration for the first year and unlimited email accounts at that domain forever. When it comes to designing your site, you can take advantage of their WYSIWYG website builder, or opt for WordPress, both of which are pretty user-friendly. If you run into any trouble, there are tons of guides and FAQs available on the One.com website. They also have a support staff available via email and chat.

Pricing

(4.6 / 5.0)

"Starter" Plan

"Professional" Plan

"Professional Plus" Plan

One.com's plans range from very basic, with 15GB of storage, a free site builder, 1-year domain name registration, and unlimited email accounts, to the more advanced options of their "Business" plan ($6.00/month for 500GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, multiple domains/databases, and eight CPUs). As expected, you get increased allowances for storage, RAM, processing power, and domains with added cost, so depending on your estimated requirements for your site, you should be able to judge which package is the best fit for you. Overall, none of their prices are excessive, but you do sort of get what you pay for, which is mostly just the bare hosting essentials.

Reliability & Support

(3.0 / 5.0)

One.com is great for the DIY crowd, as a good chunk of their support options involve watching one of their online video guides. They do have a live chat option and they offer email support with a promise to respond within 24 hours. As for reliability for your site itself, they do not offer an uptime guarantee, which is not ideal; however, One.com does assure customers that the servers are monitored around the clock, which should help ensure minimal downtime for your website.

One.com Includes

24/7 Chat Support, Email Support with 24-Hour Response Window, and Online Guides

Review by Jordan Kossowsky from WhoIsHostingThis.com

When I first learned about One.com's services I was a little reluctant to try it out. They offered me a domain and hosting for 25 cents for an entire year. Usually with cheaper hosting sites you don't get much in terms of tools. Much to my surprise I wound up with the same set of tools that I would get from one of the larger hosting companies (ie. GoDaddy, 1and1). Thus far it's been a great service for me, the only down side would be that registering a 2nd domain comes at full price and is a bit of a downer.

Review by Rik Heusschen from WhoIsHostingThis.com

I had a very nice experience with one.com. while hosting my website there never was any trouble, and I don't think I've been warned in so many ways ever before that my website was shutting down because I didn't expand my membership. Why you ask? well, because I needed another web domain. Whenever I will have the time to work on a website I will again host this domain at one.com. Very good! I want to thank them for their great service and webhosting! I can't say that I ever encountered their tech support (which is a good thing of course) so I can't say anything about that. Sorry!

The Rundown

Hosting Expert:

To recap, here's a rundown of what One.com has to offer

Often times the rule of thumb with hosting plans is "you get what you pay for," and while that may be true in terms of the number of features or support options One.com makes available to customers, they know what they're good at: domain and email hosting. These folks do a great job of helping users get a basic personal site, blog, or photo gallery up on the Web quickly. They're a fine option for first-time users and we can certainly recommend them as a cost-effective contender for email hosting.
