WebHostingPad is a mixed bag; inexpensive, but with some definite problems. Customer service has been very prompt, but seems rushed: often the first reply does not address the problem, or tells me to try something I've already told them I've done. There is a long list of features, but 90% are not useful, and for me, the core features are not quite up to snuff: for instance, several versions behind on PHP, so I can't run up-to-date CMSs. Uptime has also been problematic, where I cannot access webmail, or the entire site is offline -- since my professional portfolio is hosted by them, this could be very bad depending on timing. Overall, the services are fine if you want to throw up a basic Wordpress site quickly, and are not very concerned with details. But if you're even a little bit of a power user, you should probably keep looking.

I had an account with them for sometime. It's not very good but it's cheap. I just want publish something on web. So I live with it. But recently they suspend my account very often for reasons I don't know. So I have transfer out. When I transfer out they don't release my domain name. It's a nightmare. Don't event think about.

I have used Webhostingpad for about 7 years and maintain 4 websites. I have noticed a nice improvement in technical support over the last few years, both in response times and in quality of technical knowledge of the support person.

I ran out of disk space and spent the entire morning trying to clean up old files, etc and could not find the problem of what was eating up my disk space. I opened a technical case by email and Luis found my problem in minutes! He took the trouble to find some duplicate photos on my site which were generated by my photo album program, saving me GBs of space. Thanks, Luis!

I have been a customer with Web Hosting Pad for 7 years. I am a web designer and I build Wordpress sites. I was satisfied with their service and products until recently. They offer a great deal or so it seems. They do allow unlimited storage as long as it is not used for backups(compressed files are a no no) they won't take your site down but if you ask for more space they will ask you clear out your backups first.

My frustration with them came since they enacted a policy to "protect the database" on wordpress sites. When you go to your login page they have an alert pop up and request a username and password that are printed in the alert. then upon successfully following this step they redirect you to the login page where you can then login to your site. The policy is unprofessional and annoying. They should set up their servers better if they are having issues not punish their customers.

I would not recommend Web Hosting Pad to anyone.

WHP's support is stellar. I have asked for help with technical issues on many occasions. Their response time is never more than a day, almost always within an hour, and often it's almost a live chat. My favorite feature of WHP is the ability to host unlimited sub-domains. I can run my personal and business sites, and my wife's personal and business sites — all on one hosting account. WHP makes it easy and inexpensive. I switched to WHP from another host because the other one did not allow sub-domains.

The best hosting services for me. Its simple clear and makes you feel home. I had no issues configuring the account,
the steps are so easy it does not need any help any one who is part of the family can do it on its own.

The best part again is the support. The support team is excellent who are quick and easy to interact with.

I give 10/10 to the team response.

Thank you,
Wasi

I originally used Webhostingpad because their price was the best and all the reviews said good things about them. That was 7 or 8 years ago. Since then they have never failed me even once. My website is always up. Support is always instant, either by phone or by chat. Amd their prices are still good. They don't do huge amounts of advertising like Godaddy does and I imagine that's how they keep their prices low.

They are kinda low profile but give excellent service and excellent bang for the buck.

I've had several different web hosting services before. I would rate 'Web Hosting Pad' as the best. Very reliable service and they offer you the fastest support should a problem occur.

I've been using 'Web Hosting Pad' for approximately 7 years and had only 2 minor issues (both were panel errors I had made). I asked for their support and both times they were dealt immediately and satisfactorily.

I certainly have no reason to search for other hosting services. I recommend Web Hosting Pad for there dependability, quality services and the low costs.

I left a host host that I liked a lot, great price $1.99 and super support - but they have serious server issues for several days. I dreaded switching hosts. I picked Web Hosting Pad because they have unlimited hosting packages, complete back end set-up and at a crazy price, $1.99 mo. Also based on their site - which has a very professional presentation. Still I was worried, but signed a contract anyway - something I've never done before and avoid.

My great dread was eased and turned to pleased with my decision to go with Web Hosting Pad. Any initial issues/concerns were immediately and actively addressed. Because of the previous hosts server issues, it took a large effort and a couple of days to transfer my two networks of sites. Tech support worked patiently and diligently on my behalf. Any additional issues I presented were handled within moments by customer support and tech support. I am a nightmare for poor customer service - very important to me, a deal breaker. Web Hosting Pad has excelled and exceeded my expectations. I am very grateful for their communication and work - which has resulted in my sites running perfectly, and confidence that I chose well.

I have tried several Hosting sites and I can say without a doubt, Webhostingpad has been the best overall hosting service of any I have tried. Whatever my problem, they have the answer and their response time is second to none. One other thing, I have never had any nicer or more efficient support anywhere. If you are reading this and need a great hosting service I believe you have found the best here at Webhostingpad.

I have been using Web Hosting Pad now for over four years. During the four years downtime has been virtually zero. All issues I have had insofar as my domain have always been resolved within the day. Most times an email to tech support is answered within the hour. And resolution is within the day. Price to value is excellent. Also you deal with real people and they are open to dialogue. I am very happy with the service.

WebHostingPad helped get my company started on the internet. The introductory costs made the decision easy, but I have found that the service and features keep me happy. Not many problems, but when I encounter one, the online help or email help addressed the issue within hours. There are more features than a beginner could need and while I ended up using another web-building app because of some specific needs, their free app worked well, too. Now that renewal time has come, I "re-upped" and will remain a WebHostingPad customer - they have what I need to keep my web presence right where I want it.

At the beginning of the year precisely January, my account was supposed to auto renew but unfortunately my CC had problem. As at the time I noticed, all my site was down and I felt the spinning of Venus right on my back, I quickly contacted the support team to know what was wrong and they swift into action and got the problem resolve.

I would say Web Hosting Pad got a great team of Support, great service delivery at affordable price. In my experience with hosting they stand out especially in price and support.

The uptime is not as advertised, I never got 99% or above. Usually it was 96% -> 97%. The major problem with this company is their support. They are rude, short and not very helpful. In my experience they start off the conversation blaming the customer even if their system is at fault or simply pointing to some obscure part of their agreement and closing a ticket. I have never once got the sense that they cared about the customer in anyway.

Every time I have had to deal with their support system it has been a frustrating experience in which it seems like the company is more interested in declaring a ticket solved without a customer thinking the issue is also solved rather than working with the customer to fix whatever issue is at hand.

While on the surface it seems like they have a good feature set for hosting their customer management systems seem to be awkwardly implemented leaving a poor customer experience.

The worst possible hosting ever! I bought a hosting from them and from the beginning I saw their up time is very very very bad. They can not even handle simple MySQL query on the host. phpmyadmin is very very slow! Their support is disaster! They were not responsive. When I wanted to cancel my account they started to offer me useless services with many emails and then they said you are out of 30 days. I have been web developer for more than 10 years and I did not see a hosting with this much poor service quality (even free hosting on internet!). I can not believe how they are in business!

Support is bad - they aren't customer focused, they're not interested in fixing the problem, just closing the tickets. Often your tickets get closed without fixing anything or even contacting you... and they don't tell you when a ticket has been closed.
The websites go down regularly. Also they're slow.
They frequently make firewall changes that stop your website working, then when you complain it take a lot of time to fix. Then they do the same thing next week - this has been happening to everyone on the same server as me for a month now.

They are cheap

I can not stress this enough: DO NOT USE WEBHOSTINGPAD if you want to have your site available.

I've used them a lot for quite some time.
I've used most of their features.
I've tried everything in order to keep doing business with them. My conclusion: change web hosting provider, WEBHOSTINGPAD sucks! (when it is up :)

To keep it as short as possible: they have way too much downtime, way too many times, and way too often.

Their support (not online chat 24x7 as advertised of course) always replies with the same little speech: sorry for your trouble... bla bla bla... an account on your shared server was using too many resources...bla bla bla... our super duper support team has solved it... thank you for your patience.
This answer repeats every time... only changing that sometimes there was a miss-use of their servers by a user... malicious activity... etc.
They've even offer to change me to another of their servers... of course, no change. Then they offered this again... they didn't even know that they had already moved me... terrible!

Many times they said there was no problem registered... asked me to send them my downtime logs... and after they reviewed them they found that yes...there was a little issue which they've already solved...bla bla bla... no words can describe how terrible their service is.

I don't think anyone might have a worse uptime than this guys.
Many times in the same day... many times in the same week... and lost count of how many times a month my sites were down.

REALLY: DO-NOT-USE WEBHOSTINGPAD.COM unless you don't mind your sites being offline. I'd not pay $1 a year to have everything unlimited with them. It's probably the worst company out there.

I am sitting here with 12 sites down that are hosted on webhostingpad.com. I have called and been told that they'll put in a trouble ticket for me and their admin will get back to me. But in the meantime I have these client sites down and NO idea why. And the kicker was in looking at the email that their system sent me when they notified the admin, Ii see that it's marked "Low Priority." I also have hosting accounts at FawCow, Bluehost and Justhost and have had for at least five years in each case...and I have NEVER had a company treat sites that are dead in the water as "LOW PRIORITY" until Webhostingpad.

Absolutely unbelievably shoddy customer treatment. You'd think they at least would be so insulting as to TELL you that you're low priority - just let you sit and wait, fuming, till they got around to you, but no...

(sigh)

No wonder hosting companies come and go. Far too many have Webhostingpad's attitude.

I had the worse hosting experience with company. For 3 years and they all of sudden suspend my site claiming huge resource use. My site was small forum with less than 100 visitors at any time. I was annoyed with the notice of suspension that my visitors kept seeing. They even omit important cpanel functions without notice such as backup function. I feel sorry for the time and money I wasted with them. I will never do business with them again.

Web Hosting Pad sucks, DO NOT USE them if you really are into business...for personal web service without the need for customers and traffic the price is good i will be honest..but if you intend to use for business purposes then please DO NOT GO THERE. In 2009 i used them, my website was always down and i lost customers..then i switched...after 4years i thought they might have re-established themselves but i was wrong. i've bought 5 years hosting with them again..but just 5 months later (today's date 19 Feb. 2014) i've regreted again soo much for not sticking with the previous hosting ..i let the price deceive me..if you want better service its worth paying for it. But STAY off Web Hosting Pad, it took them more than 2 weeks to issue me SSL, by then i had moved back to my previous hosting company because i needed that SSL for a customer project..and now i have more than 4 years left on my hosting with Web Hosting Pad..am not going to cancel because they wont refund my money..so i will let it run and use that for testing..they SUCK

I have been a loyal customer for almost 5 1/2 years, and over the last 6 months the service and tech support has decreased, I have had to create 6 tickets to support about slow loading cpanel, my sites, emails, this year alone. Now I am moving on to another hosting company that actually tries to help their customers, instead of wasting their time with standard replies. I complained my emails were loading slow or timing out, and the Tech told me to clear my browser cache for emails. For the first say 3 years the service was excellent, and other than a few times, I only had one major issue, server related, and I was moved to another one, service continued fine for about another year. Now the service is terrible, hard for my people to use my sites, and that in turn makes me lose money, and loss of money is not why I run my sites. Downtime, slow loading, and terrible tech support is the reason I canceled. Now they will not pro-rate refund for an account you are canceling which is paid until 09/13/2015. How is that even right? I don't accept this policy for the simple fact that there is 1 year and 7 months left on the contract for the account, which will be canceled, so why should they get to keep the money, if the account will no longer exist. I could of used the refunded money towards my new fees I have to pay for since I could not rely on Webhostingpad to meet my needs. I feel like they got the money and do not care about my account or assisting me with the problems I had. They offer no incentive for a customer to stay, then penalize them hiding behind a TOS. I can not foresee the future, but if i could of saw the declining service, I would not of prepaid for the 3 years in advance.

I've been with WebHostingPad for at least 5 years now. I've been with them for so long, that I benefited greatly from referral program - which hasn't existed for a few years now.

Back when I first joined, their servers were always up, I got great customer service, they were extremely cheap and reliable. You got a TON of space for the cost too! Unlimited everything. I loved them. I referred so many people to them that I got about 6 years of free hosting from it (I have two years left) and a giftcard. Since then, their cheap hosting definitely did a number on their servers because I've found them to be rather unreliable for many of my clients. Downtime happens occasionally for me, but even more for newer users, from what I can tell. It has caused a number of problems for clients of mine in the past. I even remember an occasion or two where downtime lasted multiple days. My site is up about 99% of the time, but one site I worked on that used webhostingpad was up maybe about 95%.

I've stuck by them though. The free hosting is great, so I have no reason to leave. In two years there is a chance that I will switch hosting for somewhere a bit more reliable (and a tad more expensive) - but for causal users, webhostingpad is great. It's cheap, their customer service continues to be good as long as you don't have a business site that NEEDS to be up 100%, it's definitely worth the price.

Our engineering company has been with Web Hosting Pad for over 4 years with glitches here and there. We did not know what was good or bad till our complete system went down a couple times recently and each time was over a week at a time. This down time includes, no e-mail, no web site and all support communications have to be done through another e-mail address. No Problem Phone Support! They advertise an instant message system which isn't supported and when you call into the sales or question line and ask to talk to a problem administrator they hang up.
Our Company can not afford down time, poor support, and rude behavior like what we have experienced any longer. This host gives us an understanding of what being held hostage feels like.
I would never suggest Web Hosting Pad to anyone.

Web Hosting Pad

webhostingpad.com Founded: 2005

WebHostingPad Introduction

Visit the WebHostingPad website and you will notice that it specialises in low price shared web hosting, although it does also offer Reseller/VPS hosting. The company was formed in 2005.

There appears to be little information on their site regarding who owns it. WebHostingPad’s corporate office is based in Rolling Meadows, IL in the US and its servers in Chicago,IL.

Interestingly, there are some references to WebHostingPad making moves into the web hosting industry in China.

WebHostingPad Hosting Plans

There are two shared web hosting plans at WebHostingPad, the Power Plan and the Power Plan Plus. Each provide unlimited hosting space and unmetered monthly bandwidth. Customers can also host unlimited domains, email accounts and MySQL databases.

The Power Plan Plus also provides an SSL certificate, SSH access, advanced spam filter and web stats, a business directory listing and an advanced security scan.

The two shared hosting plans are priced according to how long you sign up for. You can enter into agreements ranging from one year to five years in length.

WebHostingPad has partnered with another web hosting company, VPSDepot, to provide three Reseller/VPS plans to choose from.

● The beginner plan provides 100 GB disk space, 100 GB of monthly bandwidth, 128 MB of guaranteed memory and one dedicated IP address.
● The Professional VPS plan gives 50 Gb of disk space, unlimited bandwidth, 256 MB guaranteed memory and 512 MB of burstable memory, and two dedicated IPs.
● The third Premium plan is similar to the Professional plan but with 100 GB of disk space, 512 MB guaranteed memory and 2 GB burstable memory.

WebHostingPad also offers an ultra-low cost email only service which provides you with unlimited email accounts and your own domain name. The service supports major smartphones (including BlackBerry) and includes up to 1GB of storage space per mailbox.

WebHostingPad Uptime/Downtime

WebHostingPad boast s99.9% uptime, although it does not publish any statistics to back the claim up. It does provide a guarantee and will reimburse customers for any downtime (pro-rata).

The WebHostingPad N+1 data centre is located in Chicago with 24/7 onsite security and HVAC ventilation systems. The site also carries 48 hours of generator fuel to ensure it stays up in the event of a power cut. This UPS is also backed up by agreements with local fuel providers.

The data center is backed up on a weekly basis, but WebHostingPad also provides free additional backup tools for your site.

WebHostingPad Support

WebHostingPad has a 24/7 US based support team, with live chat, email and telephone support all available. The support centre page on the website also provides access to the Kayako help desk where you can submit a support ticket.

There is also a large knowledge base which you can consult for advice and user guides. There is a news page for company announcements, but it doesn’t show any at the time of writing.

The WebHostingPad Facebook page and Twitter accounts appear fairly active, but most users with queries are redirected to the other support channels. Staff do post announcements and other news related articles up to keep their followers up to date.

WebHostingPad in the News

Other than some Chinese news articles relating to them entering the hosting market, there is very little other news surrounding the company, good or bad. We can only assume that their hosting service is relatively solid and reliable.

WebHostingPad Control Panel

The control panel used by WebHostingPad is powered by cPanel. This provides backup and restore tools, the ability to run cron jobs, check site analytics, check webmail and more.

WebHostingPad Extras

WebHostingPlus supports Softaculous which allows for one-click installs for a whole variety of tools, including Wordpress., Drupal and more. Bonus features include a Message Board, Form-Mail Script, PHP Nuke, Mailing List, Image Galleries/ Coppermine, Mambo, Joomla, Perl, Python and others.

Sign up for shared hosting and you’ll get a free domain name, Google Adwords credits, Yahoo & Bing Credits, Facebook advertising credits and the Access Guardian site protection software.

WebHostingPad provide a free website builder, but you can also purchase a custom site based on your needs. To purchase this extra feature, you need to contact them for a quote.
