We can say the eHost is a quite good host mainly for small business and for small e-commerce runners. Price is very much affordable in comparison to the great features provided by eHost. Uptime is good, speed is above average and support has mixed reviews.
One Disadvantage of using eHost is that they have only shared hosting plan for their customers. If in case business grows with increased traffic to your site, shared hosting plan will not be able to handle heavy traffic. You have no option to expand with eHost, So you have to change your host.
So if your business model fit with this disadvantage, we will recommend this host for you for sure.
I am using it and liked it very much. As no hosting is complete, you have to face some drawbacks for every hosting and to remove them you have to spend extra money. When you get everything but loose a lot money.
So according to price and features I am completely satisfied with it.
