Straight out of the western state of Texas, Database Mart offers a wildly broad variety of services, ranging from web hosting and domain registrations to firewall and VPN solutions.
But although it's been in the game for over 13 years, that doesn't necessarily mean it's a reliable provider. The only way to truly find out is to actually test its services.
So with that in mind, I decided to sign up and conduct this Database Mart review.
Database Mart - First Impression
Well, I did have a slightly confusing start to my Database Mart review, due to its hosting services being redirected and offered through SQL Server Mart. However, once I got past this, I was able to order the service required quite quickly.
The company also offers a variety of other services too, such as Domain Registration, SSL and Windows Server Management. It's always helpful when a hosting provider offers a multitude of services, as it helps you keep everything under one roof.
Next, it was time to test the actual service.
And I must be honest, the shared hosting services from Database Mart are actually reasonably stable and reliable. Uptime was good, and I didn't have any problem with initializing the solution.
Yes, these are your basic hosting needs, but it's good to know that they have them!
Overall, I thought this is a relatively basic service, but probably one that would suit small businesses and private users.
Database Mart Pricing
There is only one package offered by Database Mart, priced at $6.99 per month. However, the price varies depending on whether it is ordered on a monthly, annual, or biannual basis.
To be fair to this provider, the pricing was not unreasonable. In fact, I think that smaller web hosting clients should certainly give this provider some consideration.
For the price of $6.99 per month, you get unlimited bandwidth, 50GB of disk space, and unlimited email accounts. You can see more features in the table below:
|Price Per Month||$6.99|
|Disk Space Limit||50 GB|
|SSD / HDD||SSD|
|Website Builder||Not Included|
|Money Back Guarantee||30-day|
|Customer Support||24/7 Live|
I very much liked the commitment of the company to offer a few unlimited features, while it is also reassuring that the site offers a 30-day money back guarantee.
During my Database Mart review, I tested the site on Bitcatcha. You can see the results below:
As you can see, the performance was pretty mediocre, but this shouldn’t necessarily hinder your consumer experience overall.
Database Mart Review - Final Thoughts
Having conducted my Database Mart review, I believe that this is a decent shared hosting provider - nothing too special, though.
The feature set associated with the provider is pretty good, and the pricing is quite affordable. However, other Database Mart reviews weren't keen on its customer support, and there are definitely providers out there offering far more consumer choice and customization options.
I wouldn't say Database Mart is a terrible provider, but I cannot recommend it considering the competition available.
