Great job! Mike was very courteous and helpful. He completed the migration of our website quickly without any problems. He took the time to answer a few questions in person. It was a pleasure working with him.

Been using Rebel as a domain registrar since the early 2000s when they were called DomainsAtCost. I’ve stuck with them for almost 20 years already because of one thing: the best customer service. No matter what happens they’re always there, ready to help, and just a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended for any services they offer.

Hosting plans with you in mind

Rebel offers both shared and private hosting. Shared hosting is an affordable and secure option for smaller websites and those with lower traffic levels. If you run a large website, a virtual private server (VPS) offers the extra space, security, and administrative access you need to control and configure the hosting environment. All of our hosting plans use the Plesk control panel for easy, intuitive management.
Power hosting packages offer an affordable, secure way to get started online. Each Power plan provides space on a shared server; these plans are great options if you have a smaller website, or if your monthly traffic is low. Choose from a variety of budget-friendly packages based on your storage needs, email requirements, and number of domains.
Super Power
If you run a large, high-traffic website or a booming e-commerce business, a virtual private server (VPS) offers the extra space, speed, and security you need. Each of our VPS packages comes with full administrative access, so you can control and configure the hosting environment to suit your company's needs.
