Feature Rich Ffmpeg Enabled Hosting

HostUpon offers features rich hosting. 

Shared Hosting

All 3 shared hosting plans comes with unlimited space and bandwidth. cPanel is included in all plans. Basic Plan start from $3.95/mo. Business and Premium plan costs $ and $15.95/mo respectively. 

Every shared plan is specially design for Audio/Video streaming sites. Ffmpeg is preinstalled in every shared package. This is the my one favorite and most demanding feature on HostUpon. 

Ffmpeg Features

All the three plans have different specification. All plans includes Unlimited space and bandwidth and a free domain name.

Performance Boost and SEO are included on the Business Unlimited and Premium Unlimited plans only

With Performance Boost you’ll be able to use 80% CPU on the Business Unlimited plan and a full 100% CPU on  Premium Unlimited plan. The Starter Unlimited plan allows you to use 40% of the CPU.

Private SSL certificate is also available in Premium unlimited plan.

Premium Backup Service is available in Premium unlimited plan. It will backup your website files, databases and emails. Literally every aspect of your hosting account is backed up in detail for up to 5 days, so you can go back a few hours or a few days if needed. Backups are done on a remote server and a restore can be requested at any time.

There are very rare hosting company who offers Ffmpeg on their shared server. Most of the companies in the industry ignore this feature on shared hosting due to high resources usage. If you have a music and video site or even a social networking site, HostUpon is single hope in the budgeted host.
