Our new Linux Shared Website Hosting is here!

By Will Stevens - July 22, 2020

Our new Linux Share Website Hosting packages launched earlier in July. But what does this mean for you?

Well, if you opt for one of our new hosting packages you’ll benefit from a range of great features, including an easy-to-use control panel powered by cPanel.

Here are the benefits you’ll get from our new Linux Shared Website Hosting packages:

The ability to get your site up and running easily and at a low price

Our Starter hosting package will allow you to get your first website up and running without having to pay a fortune. It costs from as little as £2.99 a month.

You’ll also get a domain name free for a year on all plans, helping reduce the cost of getting started. (You can get up to three free domain names depending on the package you choose.)

On top of that, you’ll have access to a range of popular apps, including WordPress and Magento, all of which come with one-click installation – making it even easier to get your site up and running.

The space for your website to grow

All our Linux Shared Website Hosting packages come with unlimited bandwidth, so you don’t need to worry about having to pay extra data fees if lots of people visit your site.

And on our Standard packages and above, you’ll also benefit from unlimited storage, meaning you can expand your site without worrying you’re going to run out of space. (Starter plans come with 100GB of storage.)

You’ll also be able to host an unlimited number of websites on the Standard and above plans, and you will have access to an unlimited number of 1 GB MySQL databases on Pro and Ultimate plans.

Free email addresses

Need to set up an email address to go with your website? Our Linux Shared Website Hosting comes with up to five mailboxes included, so you’ll be able to set up email accounts that match your domain name(s).

You’ll also get anti-spam and anti-virus protection.

Support from 123 Reg

No matter which Linux Shared Website Hosting package you opt for, you’ll have access to a wide range of technical support from 123 Reg.

This includes:

  • A 30-day-money-back guarantee
  • 24/7 ticket and email support
  • Freephone and live chat support from 7am to midnight
  • Free setup

Whatever you plan to do with your new website, we’ll be on hand to help you do it.

The power and simplicity of cPanel

Whether you want to use it for quick and easy installation of an app like WordPress or for database management, cPanel makes setting up and maintaining your website easier than ever before.

Its graphical interface allows new users to carry out once-complex tasks without the need for specialised technical knowledge.

And if you do find yourself stumped by anything, our support team will be on hand to help you out.

Access to developer features (if you need them)

If you need SSH access, protected directories, mod_rewrite, cron jobs, the ability to customise php.ini, and/or the ability to edit .htaaccess, then our shared Linux hosting has you covered.
