WebHostingPad -vs- GoDaddy

WebHostingPad GoDaddy
Introductory Price $1.99/month $2.99/month
Renewal Price $3.49/month $7.99/month
Websites Unlimited 1
Mailboxes Unlimited 1

WebHostingPad is a great choice for beginners. It is cheap, easy to use, and reliable. You won’t get some of the features that other hosts include, but these features are not useful for customers who are new to web hosting. It is a great starting point for a new customer and it will get you familiar with how to run a website without being too overbearing.

In my opinion, GoDaddy is more concerned about marketing than about providing their customers with excellent service or useful features. Their lower-priced plans are extremely limited (1 website and 1 email account for their “cheap” plan) and they nearly triple their rates after the first term. And don’t expect good support—massive companies like GoDaddy oftentimes won’t even read your message before sending back a “canned answer”.

WebHostingPad -vs- HostGator

WebHostingPad HostGator
Introductory Price $1.99/month $2.75/month
Renewal Price $3.49/month $6.95/month
Domains Unlimited 1
Site Deletion 90-Day Grace Period Immediate Without Warning

WebHostingPad is a great choice for beginners. It is cheap, easy to use, and reliable. You won’t get some of the features that other hosts include, but these features are not useful for customers who are new to web hosting. It is a great starting point for a new customer and it will get you familiar with how to run a website without being too overbearing.

It is my estimation that HostGator is going to continue to slide down in terms of reliability, with support soon to follow. It is how all companies bought out by EIG end up (so far) and the signs are pointing the same way this time. I would be cautious when signing up with HostGator, and would avoid paying for more than 1 year. Leave yourself an exit strategy if something happens and you decide they aren’t for you.

WebHostingPad -vs- BlueHost

WebHostingPad BlueHost
Introductory Price $1.99/month 2.95/month
Renewal Price $3.49/month $7.99/month
Email Accounts Unlimited 5
Total Domains Unlimited 6

WebHostingPad is a great choice for beginners. It is cheap, easy to use, and reliable. You won’t get some of the features that other hosts include, but these features are not useful for customers who are new to web hosting. It is a great starting point for a new customer and it will get you familiar with how to run a website without being too overbearing.

Bluehost is mediocre. They claim to be the #1 WordPress host, but their WordPress hosting is also the #1 most expensive WordPress hosting plan out there. At one point in time they were a great host, but that was years ago and before EIG got their fingerprints all over. There are certainly better options out there, but you could do worse than choosing BlueHost to host your website. They are a big name host so you can rest assured they won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

WebHostingPad -vs- iPage

WebHostingPad iPage
Introductory Price $1.99/month $1.99/month
Renewal Price $3.49/month $7.99/month
cPanel Yes No
Hidden Fees None $35 to Cancel

WebHostingPad is a great choice for beginners. It is cheap, easy to use, and reliable. You won’t get some of the features that other hosts include, but these features are not useful for customers who are new to web hosting. It is a great starting point for a new customer and it will get you familiar with how to run a website without being too overbearing.

Yes, this review is largely based on my opinion on how iPage operates as a company (other than the reliability issues which are based on testing). I’m sure plenty of people think it’s not as big of a deal as I do. I just hate seeing a company like that get so much business when they are so indifferent to their service and treating their customers with respect. The sheer number of hidden fees in their terms is astounding – they charge you just to cancel. I would suggest choosing a different company to host your website. This review may have caught you off guard because of how often you see iPage at #1 on other review websites. This is because iPage pays out a lot of money to these sites to keep them at the top spot.

WebHostingPad -vs- FatCow

WebHostingPad FatCow
Introductory Price $1.99/month $4.08/month
Renewal Price $3.49/month $12.95/month
cPanel Yes No
Hidden Fees None Yes – Due When You Cancel

WebHostingPad is a great choice for beginners. It is cheap, easy to use, and reliable. You won’t get some of the features that other hosts include, but these features are not useful for customers who are new to web hosting. It is a great starting point for a new customer and it will get you familiar with how to run a website without being too overbearing.

Fatcow can be tempting with its first-year lower prices and variety of features, but at the end of the day they’re missing some really vital things. They disguise their shortcomings well, offering this and that at lowered prices or included and free, but it doesn’t make up for the fact that they’re lacking in some of the most important areas a host is supposed to excel in: support, uptime, and transparency.

WebHostingPad Review Introduction

Webhostingpad.com is located in Chicago, Illinois and was started in 2005 by a team of proven and successful industry veterans. They have won numerous awards including the Best Buy Award, the Top Choice 2008 web hosting award as well as many other top web hosting rewards. As any reputable web hosting company would, they have 99.9% or greater uptime thanks to their state of the art data center and two super-fast OC-12 connections. They only use quality components, regularity backup their data and have complete redundancy in power, HVAC, fire suppression, network connectivity, and security as well as onsite security and 48 hours of generator power available immediately in case of an outage.

WebHostingPad Review on Services

WebHostingPad’s hosting plan costs as little as $1.99/month and comes with unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email accounts, unlimited databases, SSI, FTP, CGI, Perl, PHP, MySQL, web stats and more. You even get a free domain name with every account and can host unlimited add on domains per account. You’ll email account will be protected by the latest spam protection software.

Setup is also free and there no other hidden costs tacked on after or before you sign up. Their strive to provide the best bang for your buck and when you look at their prices and the features, it’s obvious that they’re doing it well. And if the free site builder isn’t custom enough for you, they even have a professional design team who can put together a site for you, built from scratch starting at only $350.

All plans come with an unconditional 30 day money back guarantee as well as their award winning customer support is provided 24/7 by phone, live chat, and email.

Our Recommendation

I highly recommend WebHostingPad hosting company. Not only did I find their plan to be fully inclusive with no hidden fees, our uptime of our test site has been 100% for the past 12 months and running now. You’d be hard pressed to find another hosting company that includes all they do for only $1.99/month.
