MidPhase Review

midPhase, along with its sister-site ANHosting, are part of UK2’s family of web hosts and both have been popular hosts for a few years for good reason. Not only do they offer appealing plans, but they are financially solid, they own most of their own equipment which they house is a top tier facility, and they have a well-earned reputation for network reliability.

Shared Hosting

What people notice first about midPhase’s shared hosting offerings is the unmetered bandwidth for the higher level plans and generous bandwidth for the lower level ones. To be sure, this is a great feature if you have a popular website in need of some room to grow. But bandwidth alone is not enough to make a great host and midPhase offers much more.

If you are just beginning, you can put your site together quickly and professionally with their site design tool. Under Linux, you also get the Fantastico script library (blogs, portals, forums, galleries, wikis, calendars, and more) for the more advanced site developer. Similarly, you get the Application Vault from Plesk under Windows for similar one-click installs. And you can roll your own applications with the usual development tools, whether under Linux (PHP, Perl, MySQL) or Windows (PHP, Perl, ASP.Net, MySQL, Access).

Support

midPhase has a solid support record, with average ticket and telephone supports times below 15 minutes. Phone, email, and live chat are available around the clock 365 days of the year. I think this might be their best feature. If you’ve tried some other “bargain” hosts, you know that these times can be orders of magnitude larger, which is just painful when your site has a problem. They also have an online support forum where you can converse with other customers.
