The launching of LunarPages dates back to the mid of the year 2000 when Add2Net Corporation started offering shared hosting solutions as part of its hosting expansion program. Till that point, Add2Net had been highly successful in its managed as well as unmanaged large-scale web hosting offerings for the previous three years. Because of the fact that their hosting platform was highly stable as well as their customer service was exceptionally efficient, their customer base started to increase which boosted their courage for future growth. The result of the high level of service and experience was that the LunarPages brand came into being. They are highly committed to continue to serve their customers to the highest level of satisfaction. More information about the company behind this innovative hosting service can be found at Add2Net.com.

Features vs. Cost Analysis

The company offers 5 linux hosting plans, of which the most popular is their Basic Hosting plan. The plan is available for only $6.95 /month and can truly be called unlimited in that there are no restrictions on either disk space, bandwidth, domains hosted, subdomains, MySQL databases, Email accounts or FTP accounts, hence it is highly cost effective and affordable. Best of all, it offers a free domain name for life as well as free setup if you sign up for a full-year term. Currently, LunarPages is also offering a Fall special deal lowering the price further to an incredible $4.95 per month, so it's a smart move to act quickly in order to take advantage of this offer. The Business Hosting plan goes for $21.95 per month and has an edge over the Basic Hosting plan because of the included Ecommerce features, a Free Dedicated IP address as well as Free SSL Installation which is in itself a $24.95 saver. However for most users, the Basic Hosting plan is more than enough.

Hosting accounts are activated the same day your order is verified and account setup takes from 30 minutes to an hour.
