HostClear was established in 2008, and in just 7 years, has managed to reach new heights and achieve impressive goals. The web hosting company seems set on making sure its clients don't face any difficulties for as long as they are hosting with HostClear. Yes, that might be the aim of almost any company out there, but with its simple and clear hosting infrastructure, HostClear illustrates next level dedication. There are no confusing plans or difficult choices to make, and the instructions are straightforward. HostClear also boasts very competitive prices and free offers for new clients. (Take advantage of its 50% special introductory offer right now and have your site hosted for just $2.99 a month!)

Ease of Use

Apart from an uncomplicated hosting plan, clients can expect easy creation and administration of their websites with HostClear. Its drag-and-drop website builder makes creating sites a breeze. With thousands of templates up for grabs, you’ll be almost spoilt for choice.

After a site is up, adding a blog is a mere matter of clicks. Of course, clients that only need a blog and nothing more can skip the website building and go directly to having it up and running within a matter of minutes, but with the popular Fantastico script, clients will probably want to keep on installing additional features from a large selection of applications – simply because it’s easy to do so.

Once all is done, it’s just a matter of administering your site, and HostClear offers one of the easiest ways to do so via cPanel – a practical and user-friendly interface that is popular with website designers and developers of all strata.

Features

At HostClear, the operative word always seems to be "free". Once clients pay for their hosting package, they can expect to be swamped with free offers and features. With every hosting plan comes a free domain name, which a web hosting client can keep for the lifetime of the website. (Once the initial hosting term ends, all you need to pay is the annual renewal fee of $15.)

Apart from that, website owners could find any and everything they want at HostClear. You can build online stores, create forums for your visitors, and implement a marketing campaign to promote your site since every hosting plan comes with hundreds of dollars of advertising credit on Google's AdWords or Yahoo! / Bing sponsored search. For local businesses, there is the chance to register with Yellowpages.com, all for free.

Clients in the US get one extra freebie: a toll-free phone number.

When it comes to the technical aspects, HostClear offers unmetered storage space and bandwidth, and an unlimited number of additional domains and MySQL databases.

Customer Support

Before we look into HostClear's customer support, it is important to note that clients can actually help themselves before contacting the experts. The company's website offers a comprehensive knowledge base that provides almost all possible solutions to known issues clients may face. If the answer can't be found there, you can move to researching the "common questions and answers" area where many more topics are addressed and resolved.

If there is still no solution, HostClear has three ways of being contacted for support: chat, email, and phone. All services run 24/7 and client reviews show that technicians are always available and resolved issues in a matter of minutes in some cases.

Prices

HostClear has only one hosting solution with all the great features thrown into it. Although the normal hosting price for the comprehensive package is $6.95 per month, the company is presently selling it at a 50% discount (just $2.99/month).

The number of free features and software makes this deal unbelievably enticing. With the free advertising credits, the enhanced security suites, the marketing suite, free online store, and an effective support suite, you’re actually being given hundreds of dollars worth of applications for free.

Also, just in the rare chance a client doesn't like its service, HostClear offers an "anytime" money-back guarantee.

The Good

There are tons of free features available

The "anytime" money-back guarantee is almost unheard of in the web hosting industry

The Bad

The price of the free domain names revert back to their original purchase prices ($15) once the hosting term is over

The Ugly

None
