Compare Shared Web Hosting Plans

Shared web hosting saves you money by splitting the high cost of a high performance, dedicated web server with other accounts, providing high quality service for a low monthly fee. This is a great way to host your web site and does not require any experience with server administration. Our most popular hosting plan is our Shared Plus plan.

For beginner plans and domain registration information, see our Domain Plans. To host multiple web sites on one account, or for other advanced features, see our Advanced Hosting or Windows plans.

ITS highly recommends against, actively discourages, and does not support, forwarding e-mails to an email address on another service, even if ITS Mail Guard is used. It is increasingly likely the target service may detect externally forwarded mail as forged or spam, and blacklist our mail system. In this case the forward will be removed.

When installing a custom SSL certificate, a unique IP address is optional for maximum backwards browser/OS compatibility, however Server Name Indication (SNI) is supported on all plans and is compatible with all recent operating systems and browsers. An existing certificate can be moved from one server to another if one has the private key.
