easyDNS is one the most established hosting providers on the market, having been founded 20 years ago.

The company particularly prides itself on having achieved several innovations, such as being the first hosting provider to offer a privacy guard, as well as accept Bitcoin for payments.

It is clear that easyDNS has made a name for itself, but can it still stand out in the web hosting business?

My First Impression

The initial impression I had of easyDNS was of a historic site in web hosting, and the steampunk-like theme of the homepage certainly matched.

More to add, EasyDNS provides a range of WordPress hosting options, which is great considering that the open-source content management system is a powerful tool for building websites.

Overall, everything is reasonably clear and simple to find. The website is user-friendly, responsive and there is also a lot of transparency in terms of information provided.

This is always a good start to any review, but will its pricing model match up?

EasyDNS Pricing

Full information and pricing are available on all of the WordPress packages offered.

To be honest, I feel the pricing for easyDNS is a little high. Its $9 fee for a 'Hobby' package is over the odds, while its Dedicated solution costs $299 per month.

Although easyDNS delivers everything you would require from a web hosting solution, it does require a pretty large outlay compared to some other providers.

The web hosting services offered by easyDNS are feature-packed - I must give them credit for that. It is nice to see a website builder included in all of its packages too, as this isn't something offered by most providers.

However, with this being said, there are still many other providers offering similar specs at cheaper prices.

Performance

During my easyDNS review, I tested the site on Bitcatcha.

Its performance was rather poor, which (as expected) does tally with other easyDNS reviews that have been posted online.

My EasyDNS Review Verdict

My easyDNS review uncovered some good qualities of the site, but I’m afraid that I can’t recommend it overall. There are two reasons for this:

  1. EasyDNS pricing isn't impressing at all. There are cheaper web hosting options out there.
  2. More to add, there are quite a lot of negative customer reviews of the easyDNS system, its website, and the customer service provided.

I found EasyDNS to be fairly reliable, but there is nothing spectacular about this provider. I wouldn't recommend easyDNS, simply because its prices are not reasonable when compared to its competitors.
