Hostmetro is the latest breed of extremely low cost web hosting companies that have recently come to the fore. They state in their mission statement that they plan to provide high-performance hosting services that are reliable and responsive to customer concerns.

While still very young company in the hosting business, they have invested over one million dollars in their state of the art data center located in Illinois. Since the company is still relatively new, very little about it is known. There are very few reviews compared to other hosting services from customers.

Infrastructure, reliability, support and user experience

There is very little information on their infrastructure and support. This may be because they are still a very new hosting company, and information is still being gathered. However, from their website we find that they have invested quite a bit in a world class data center.

Though there's little information, their servers come with CloudLinux and CloudFlare installed. They also have RAID protected servers in their data center.

Overall HostMetro Review

Currently, the only reviews that are online are a mix of very bad and very good experiences. This is typical with any new web hosting companies since they may not have a tremendous customer base. This may change as more people are attracted to their services and more information about the company is availed.

However, their entry pricing is very enticing. At $2.45 per month, that is still one of the cheapest hosting rates in the market. The only problem is that there are only two products available with this HostMetro. Thus, should you website grow bigger, you may be forced to search for another host. But all the best hosting companies started somewhere, and HostMetro may end up being a good host in the future.
