Is WebHost.Pro the host for you?
Last reviewed Mar 31, 2016
We have used them for over a decade. I know the owners by their first name and am always happy to tell people how great they have been. We have had no issues and they help with almost everything. We are super happy with Web Host Pro and always have been.
Web Host Pro is a web hosting company based in Los Angeles, California. The company opened its doors in 1998 and was founded by two webmasters who met at a bar and were frustrated with finding reliable hosting that was "run by real people." Besides providing high-quality hosting with personalized service, the company is also concerned about customer privacy and the environmental impact of their work.
Web Host Pro offers shared, VPS, and dedicated server hosting. The company takes efforts to provide fast hosting that is reliable. It targets customers and individuals that need inexpensive plans that allow them to build websites with quick response times and lead to better search engine rankings.
Customers looking for basic plans could start with a shared hosting plan. Like many plans found on the web, these plans feature varying amounts of disk space and bandwidth and limit the number of websites and email accounts hosted. The plans feature simple management software such as cPanel and support scripting languages like PHP, Ruby on Rails, and SQL. In addition, Web Pro Host provides the ability to install and configure packages easily with Installatron. This allows customers to install content management systems like WordPress and Joomla as well as PrestaShop and Magento ecommerce shopping carts. Customers wanting to host websites for their clients can select from a number of reseller plans which feature larger and faster disk drives as well as a high amount of bandwidth. Reseller plans offer similar features to shared plans but allow for white label opportunities so that end users will not be exposed to Web Pro Host's branding.
Besides offering shared hosting plans, customers wanting even more resources for their website can select from a number of VPS and dedicated server plans. VPS hosting features OpenVZ virtualization and includes SolusVM as a control panel. The plans, hosted on CentOS, feature at least a single dedicated IP address with full root access, much more bandwidth, and multiple CPU cores for faster processing. Customers with websites requiring even more resources may also consider dedicated server plans featuring much higher bandwidth capacity, multiple CPU cores, and at least some dedicated IPs. The servers come with CentOS installed by default and supports cPanel to help simplify server management tasks.
In order to reach its goal of providing reliable service, Web Host Pro tries to use the best equipment. It has datacenters throughout the world and uses servers equipped with Intel processors. The datacenters use redundant communication connections with 20 of the world's fastest providers and also offer backup power, redundant data backups, and 24/7 onsite security. The company likes to emphasize that it can offer faster service because it hosts far fewer websites on a single physical server compared to popular competitors "who appear in SuperBowl ads." Customers who are concerned with energy usage and the environment can rest assured that as many as half of the company's datacenters fully rely on renewable energy and that the company is the leader in RoHS compliance.
Web Host Pro offers a number of services to help customers enhance the security of their websites and create data backups. Some of the security services include anti-virus protection for customer websites and email as well as firewall protection to block certain IP addresses. The company also creates backups of website data in 3 locations to ensure that copies are available for restoration in case important changes are lost.
Web Host Pro aims to offer friendly and personalized service. Customers needing assistance can contact support through many channels including chat, Skype, phone, email, or support tickets. Besides contacting technical support, customers can take a look at the company's video tutorials and blog articles.
A majority of Web Host Pro's plans are billed on a monthly basis. Customers wanting discounts should expect to pay at least 6 months up-front. The company is flexible because it allows customers to change payment terms. It also accepts multiple payment methods including PayPal and major debit/credit cards. Unlike many competitors, Web Host Pro also accepts payments via Western Union.
Web Host Pro was founded in 1998 by two webmasters as a result of frustration with other web hosting companies. They wanted to create a company that was fast, reliable, and personal. Instead of hosting thousands of websites on a single server, Web Host Pro uses the latest server technology with far fewer websites hosted. Besides providing fast service, Web Host Pro aims to provide service that satisfies customer concerns about the environment and privacy. Customers wanting reliable service with a personal touch may find a good home for their website with Web Host Pro.
