MochaHost Review 2018

June 6, 2018 Internet Stuff

Unbeatable Pricing

They have something really nice called “LifeTime Discount Guarantee”. For a 3 years package (Web Hosting Business Plan), you pay $3.48/mo, and you get unlimited websites, unlimited monthly traffic, and unlimited SSD disk space!

Friendly Support

One Sunday morning, they contacted me saying that one of my websites (not this blog) is infected, and I have to take care of that and reply within 24 hours.

Problem

Support sent me a lengthy email suggesting stuff I could do to help solving the problem. They are so nice that they even recommend two commercial plugins for me, WordFence ($99, 1 key, 1 year), Sucuri ($199.99/year), and also one free plugin called Exploit Scanner. I remember that this website was hosted with Hostgator and Crocweb before, and their support didn’t send me any warning or anything. I used an online WordPress scanner (wpscans.com), it says “Your WordPress website is safe!”. One more try. I moved the whole site to another host and tried their virus scanner, it says “Virus Scan Complete. No Virus Found.” It’s Sunday, I don’t think I can fix this within 24 hours, so maybe I should cancel the account for good.

Affiliate Program

Here are the details of their affiliate program. Commission Type is based on Pay-Per-Sale, you receive 50% of all sales you deliver. Up to $2500.00 per sale. Initial Deposit $10.00, just for signing up their affiliate program. Payout Threshold is $100.00. Minimum of 3 sales are required in order for the first payout to be submitted.

Cancellation

They have a 30 Day Money Back. To cancel a package, you need to fill up a form. Even though the auto-mail replied that refund request may take up to 5-7 business days, they process my refund within a day.
