Do you offer a free trial? No, we don't for our web hosting, but you're free to cancel at any time.
What is cloud hosting? Our cloud hosting means you don't share your resources with other accounts. You get dedicated resources in your own hosting environment.

Can I use my own domain name? Yes, you can either purchase a domain name through us, or alternatively use any major domain registrar. We will then help you get it pointing to your new hosting account.
Do I have to sign a contract? No never, InstantHost is contract free, meaning you can cancel at any time - with no notice period. The only thing is we don't offer any refunds, so if you do cancel a few days into a new payment period, you may loose the value of the remainder you paid.
