Overview

WebHostingPad hosts more than 300,000 domains worldwide. They offer their clients 99.9% uptime, solid hardware, lots of exciting tools, and a decent set of unlimited options: web storage, bandwidth, domains, MySQL database amounts and email accounts. The pricing policy can be as low as $1.99/month.

Why Choose WebHostingPad?

  • Important unlimited features
  • Intensified security
  • Low prices
  • Stable 24/7 Support

Want to know if WebHostingPad is right for you?

Let's check it out.

Uptime & Reliability

Questionable Uptime, Good Security

Just like many other companies, WebHostingPad promises that your project will run well 99.9% of the server functioning time. The analysis of their own website shows they're 99.98% online. This is quite a good result. However, a quick glance through any user forum will reveal that 40% of user reviews complain about the regular downtime and just as many users complain about unexpected suspensions. While they promise a compensation in case of long offline periods, there is no way to verify the claim.

Site security comes through the use of extra-secure datacenters located in Chicago, safe hardware, 24/7 server monitoring, and regular backups. Generally, WebHostingPad appears trustworthy.

Features

Plans Stuffed with Great Features

As mentioned, WebHostingPad has a nice set of unlimited features, includin bandwidth, disk space, MySQL databases, email accounts, hosted domains. All these are available without any limits; however, the fine print indicates that you will need to telephone the company to request more bandwidth as the need arises. It is always a good rule of thumb to go over the fine print very carefully when purchasing any hosting plan.

You also will get a free domain name, a website builder, and about $200 for marketing. The package looks really appealing, especially if you need to stick to a budget.

It is also worth pointing out that WebHostingPad has strong script support, great security scanners, and free customized error pages. However, you should bear in mind that many important tools like eCommerce widgets, SSL certificate, advanced spam filters, or advanced web stats are available only in the more expensive Power Plan Plus offers—which cost almost twice as much.

Feature Description
Disk Space You get unlimited hard-drive storage with each and every WebHostingPad plan.
Bandwidth You must call and request more bandwidth as the need arises.
Website Builder Their own free website builder is included into every plan.
Email Accounts No limits for emails and many related services. Webmail client is also included.
Shopping Carts Only OS Commerce Shopping Cart available through the more expensive package.
Stats Log files and website stats for everyone. Advanced stats are available for Power Plan Plus clients.
MySQL databases No limits for MySQL databases — host as many as you need.
FTP Account Can be managed through cPanel. I haven't found any info regarding limits.
Multiple Domains Yep, no limits again! This is specially great if you want to host several websites at once.

Support

Quick Responses

The support center of WebHostingPad seems to offer everything you may need: 24/7 live chat, email support, and phone lines. Many materials are also available for self-study. However, there are no educational videos, which could have been more convenient for some.

Additionally, many users complain that while customer support has a fairly fast response time, the quality of the actual support varies from par to poor.

  • 24/7 live chat
  • Toll-free phone number
  • 24/7 email support
  • Decent knowledge base
  • Poor News page
  • No blog or forum
  • No video tutorials
  • Poor support quality

Pricing

Nice Discounts for 2-Year Purchases

The pricing policy of WebHostingPad is decent. You can get a good set of features for the moderate price of $3.99. However, there's a really good way to save some cash: if you make a 2, 3, 4 or 5-year purchase, your discounts may reach 50%.

You will see some additional offers during the signup process, so make sure to look closely and avoid the extra costs. However, the extras they offer are quite nice if you need them. You can get domain privacy and faster hard drives for only 2$/month, so if you'd like to enable these services, don't hesitate. Don't forget about the 30 day money back guarantee offered by WebHostingPad.

User Friendly

Capable Datacenter

This web host's packages include cPanel, which is one of the most popular control panels for efficient web hosting management. It includes important tools to help you create and maintain a good website for your needs.

The actual WebHostingPad website is also quite convenient: the signup process is easy and all of the functions that you need are always at hand. However, many important features that will improve your website's user-friendliness are available only with the more expensive packages.

Summary

WebHostingPad is a solution for small-to-medium web projects. They offer you a great set of features and fantastic discounts for multi-year purchases. However, don't forget that they only have Shared and VPS plans, so if you make long-term orders these packages may turn out to be less than enough for your project in a couple of years.
