DataPacket Review


DataPacket is a web hosting company founded in 2001 in Florida, USA by Brian Bennett. Brian has over 2 decades of experience in IT and Web Hosting that he brings to the table when leading Team DataPacket.

The company offers 100% cloud-based hosting from an extensive global IP network & multiple worldwide data centers. They boast solutions to fit any budget with guaranteed reliability, performance and ease of use.

The name DataPacket is, in and of itself, very techy as it means “a unit of data that travels along networks” (most notably IP networks when it comes to hosting websites).

DataPacket : Some of the Cheapest Hosting Plans on the Market

The heart of DataPacket is providing the lowest cost hosting plans around and they live up to this on many of their pricing plans. One great pricing feature is the fact that they offer 2 months free hosting when you pay your hosting fees annually. This provides even more savings on their already cheap hosting packages.  DataPacket provides FREE SSL certificates and SSL hosting to all domain names that are on their cPanel and Plesk plans.

Furthermore, they offer free setup and support on all of their shared hosting plans. The savings are reflected throughout the company, with the cheapest reseller packages around with no setup fees. Their reseller plans are not only cheap, but they are also fully customizable and “white label” so that you can then rebrand to fit your company look and feel. Here are some of the ways that DataPacket ensures value for money:

  • 100% free setup
  • Extremely low-cost reseller plans
  • 2 Months free with annual plan
  • Unlimited storage on the reseller plans to enhance value for money
  • Entry Level Reseller Hosting Packages
  • They offer some of the cheapest hosting plans on the market
  • No contracts

Customer Support with DataPacket

Being a worldwide hosting provider, DataPacket has added in a handy language selector to their website so that you can translate the whole site into your native tongue. To contact DataPacket you can either phone them, send an email or more reliably open a support ticket. I have heard that the best way to contact them is via their ticketing system. To access your customer portal you can log in directly via Facebook or other social networks. This feature appeals to me because it saves their customers from having to remember their login details.

There is a small knowledge base that you can access online. Inside the customer portal, you can access information about your services and also find out the server/ network status.  All of the contact details are in the footer of the website, so easy to access should you need to get in touch.

Amazingly Cheap Dedicated Servers

DataPacket always has its eye on the current global pricing points for hosting and aims to break the price barrier every step of the way.  DataPacket says that they keep their prices low by providing a solid infrastructure at 3 data centers (two in the US and one in Canada).
