StartLogic is one of the mid sized web hosting companies that offers web hosting packages starting at $5.95/month and the general features of their package include 300 GB web space, 3000 GB monthly bandwidth, 10 add-on/sub-domains, unlimited POP3, and up to 25 FTP Accounts as well as MySql Databases.

As far as the technological features of their hosting package are concerned, all the basic as well as advanced technologies right from CGI BIN, Perl, Python, down to PHP, Ruby-on-Rails, and FrontPage are supported.

However, their downtime has been one of the small concerns to the customers. While their customer support is supportive enough, the email replies have been found to be a bit sluggish and caused discontentment amongst the customers.


StartLogic is an experienced player in the web hosting arena, but somehow the company hasn’t been able to rise up to the expectations of the customers to the fullest, nevertheless they’re a reliable option for those who’re looking for affordable web hosting solutions to run simple websites.

Moreover, websites with too much of AJAX coding, and excessive JavaScript have been found to load a bit too slowly with their web servers, and StartLogic’s web hosting package has been considered to be the suitable only for hosting the beginner level websites or personal blogs with low-to-moderate traffic. The additional features offered by StartLogic include free domain registration, $50 Yahoo Marketing, and $25 Google AdWords credit.

StartLogic offers web hosting packages that are e-commerce ready, and the company provides 24/7 toll free support with 30 days money back assurance. In earlier times, StartLogic offered the vDeck control panel, but off-late they’ve switched to their own custom control panel. But, the standard cPanel is regarded as a much needed feature, which is missing on their package.

For those who wish to host websites with very high traffic or online stores that require 99.9% uptime, there might be occasional rusty patches of a day or two during downtimes, otherwise if a personal blog or a basic static HTML website is what you really need to host, StartLogic is perhaps one of the good options.

Turning the focus towards the additional features, free website builder and PHPAdmin is also missing in their basic web hosting package, but they do offer free domain registration as a part of their hosting package. Signing up for 24 months is the best option for the customers who wish to pick their web hosting services at low prices, because there’s a considerable price drop in the charges, if you pay for 2years hosting charges at once.
