      Lunarpages Plans

      The differences between the three core plans are quite clear. Aside from the three plans listed above, Lunarpages also offers Dedicated Hosting. However, the heavy majority of people have no need for dedicated hosting, and it costs $99 per month.

      The Lunarpages Starter Hosting Plan is exceptionally cheap. In fact, it is one of the cheapest plans on the market, out of all web hosts. If you are running a basic website that only requires a couple of static pages, or even a WordPress blog that only gets updated occassionally, the Lunarpages Starter Plan may be the best choice. At $2.95 per month, it's half the price of some of the lowest plans out there, and sometimes even more. Although it is quite limited, for a basic website, there is no better choice. Keep under consideration, you don't have to purchase a $20.00 domain name from Lunarpages. You can get a domain name at another host such as Go Daddy, and simply redirect to Lunarpages nameservers.

      The Lunarpages Basic Hosting Plan is also priced aggressively. At $5.95 per month, you get unlimited everything (for the most part). The Lunarpages Basic Hosting Plan should be suitable for sites that get decent traffic, but also have a lot of content, pages, or posts. The price of the Basic Plan is comparable to other unlimited plans from other web hosts.

      The Lunarpages Business Hosting Plan is priced at $18.95 per month, which seems a bit high. However, the three free domain names, Dedicated IP and SSL Certificate make the plan worth the price. $18.95 per month is actually a bit cheaper than most business plans on the market, considering Media Temple's basic, lowest price plan starts at $20.00 a month.

      That's all for part one of our Lunarpages web hosting review. Be sure to continue on to page two where we will cover additional review standards for Lunarpages, and conclude with an overall rating for the popular web host.

      Lunarpages Support

      Rating Average

      Lunarpages support is about average compared to other web hosts on the market. The heavy majority of the time, Lunarpages support will be able to assist you with any problems that you have setting up your website, and answer any questions about web hosting services in general. One thing to note, the Luanrpages Starter Plan (reviewed on page 1) does not offer any type of phone support. Thus, you will need to use the Lunarpages Support Center for any troubleshooting problems. If you choose the basic plan or business plan, Lunarpages does offer phone support.

      As far as knowledge of Lunarpages support staff, they might not always be able to help you with more detailed website troubleshooting issues. The majority of the time they will be able to assist you with basic website setup, but more complex problems may require talking to a manager via phone support.
