Turning the focus towards the hosting awards won by Omnis, they have been rated amongst the Top 15 Host by “Top Hosts” and Top 5 Web Hosts by “Rate My Host” in the year 2005, while they were also picked as Editor’s Choice by “Find My Host” in the same year. They’ve also bagged the Editor’s Choice Award by “Web Host Magazine” and #1 Budget Hosting Award by “Web Host Directory” in the subsequent year.
The customers who purchase web hosting packages offered by Omnis also get $25 Yahoo Marketing Credits and $30 Google AdWords Credits to improve the traffic of the hosted website, while the free Website Builder software ensures that the non tech-savvy website owners create and set-up their websites on-the-fly.
The 30-days money-back guarantee and 24/7 toll free telephone and email support ensures that the customers don’t really need to compromise on any of the aspects. Basically, there has been only one major problem faced by the customers of Omnis till date. Whenever the load on their server increases, the websites take longer to load and on many occasions, the website owners have been warned that they were exceeding their allocated bandwidth/storage space.
While support and downtime has never been a concern, the confusion in the “unlimited” bandwidth and storage limits has caused the maximum amount of discontentment amongst their customers. However, off-late they’ve added new servers and taken off the load from the old servers, and things have been observed to be quite smooth in recent times.
Lastly, as far as the pricing is concerned, of course the $6.95/month web hosting package offered by Omnis is quite cheap, and rated to be below the average price, but they’re far from being the cheapest at the same time.
