Network Solutions offers many useful tools to get a novice up and running. From a drag-and-drop website builder to professional design services, the company ensures your site will look professional. From there, a bevy of marketing, SEO, and ecommerce add-ons will help your online business grow to the next level.
All plans include fully customizable templates, an easy drag-and-drop editor tool, a high-quality, free image gallery, website add-ons (e.g., maps, calendars, etc.), and a free custom domain. You'll find the standard one-click installations and email inboxes, but you can probably find more at the same price by looking elsewhere.
Network Solutions offers the support you need when you need it at no extra cost from the company's live support team — available 24/7 via phone, email, and chat. The company is among the last to implement live chat, but we found the option helpful. Your best bet will be to start with the company's ample online user guides and tutorials. The company includes an above-average 99.99% uptime guarantee and defaults customers to month-to-month hosting plans, but we're skeptical about the lack of any sort of refund policy.

Network Solutions, affectionately known as NetSol, offers its hosting customers a free, custom domain name, unlimited data transfer allowances, and 24/7 support via email, phone, and chat. You gain access to modern technology and tools for web development, apps, and databases, plus nsMail™ for email. Overall, they're a fine option for a first-time host, but keep your eyes open for similarly priced plans from competitors that include way more features.
