WebHostingPad Review: As Cheap As It Gets

Hosting is a cutthroat business. Sustaining in it will require something extra from you. Whether it is a superior product, big backing or cheap prices, you need to have at least one of these things to survive in this industry. Unless you do, you are finished.

WebHostingPad has taken the third route in this business offering affordable services to stay afloat in the business. Ever since its inception in 2005, the company has been built on the mantra of affordable services for those looking for it and have done well on the back of it.

So, their products are cheap, so is that all they got?

Fortunately for you, no they have much more to offer than just affordable services. This will come as a relief to many as most services like this in any field turn out to be a train wreck rather than a steal. So, what do they have to offer?

Since we are speaking about money anyway, we will first talk about the money-back guarantee they offer. You get a strong 30-day money-back guarantee from WebHostingPad before which you can withdraw from their services and get back all the money you have paid them.

This is good for two things. Firstly, it gives you confidence when you are going to choose their service. Not many companies have such a policy in place and you can go headlong into their services without even checking upon them. I mean you can always withdraw if you don’t like it.

Second, it gives you time to assess whether WebHostingPad is the best choice for you. While it is among the best out there, it is no secret that they can be lacking at times when it comes to speed and performance.

The money-back-guarantee will allow you to see whether it is good enough for your site and choose another one if it does not, kind of handy eh?

The next thing that will hit you hard is how good their customer support is. Let me tell you this, if there is something that other companies in the market can learn something from WebHostingPad, it is how to do support right.

I never had any problems with them. I was connected instantly and I had responses from the rep within a minute. Though there have been mixed reviews about it on the internet, I have found more than satisfactory myself.

Another thing you will find nice about WebHostingPad is security enhancements. If you are in the know about this industry then you know where I am going with this. Most companies charge you extra for security, whether it is daily scans or SSL certificates.

WebHostingPad does it for free. They have thrown in a couple of things like Automated malware scanner and Malware Quarantine for their WP hosting plans.

While all these things are great about WebHostingPad, there are quite a few things that can be improved on, especially on the performance side of things.

The uptime is one of those things. It is not bad, but it is not good either and the loading speeds are mediocre at the best. It can be nearly 40% slower sometimes and that’s not great, is it? But I think of it as a trade-off for everything else.

You get unbelievably cheap prices and a ton of other things including great support. So I would like to think that the trade-off for performance might just be worth it.
