Rating: 7/10

101 Site hosting is definitely made for individual and small to medium-scale business as their main web hosting offer focuses on shared and reseller hosting. They offer a wide range of features such as web admin tools, ecommerce tools, and email tools which will definitely be helpful for small business. Their WordPress features are also very favorable for bloggers. Their dedicated hosting is not that fully-featured and you do not also get a lot of options. Their reseller plans are somehow limited in terms of disk space and bandwidth. They could also offer a much better knowledgebase for their clients.

They offer one of the cheapest prices in the market but this only comes at initial subscriptions. I think this can be quite misleading since not everyone takes the time to read the fine print about their conditional offers. Their website is also not that easy to navigate and the descriptions of their plans are not that comprehensive so you cannot exactly figure out what features you will be getting. For that, I think the company has a 7 out of 10 rating.
