Is Web Trade Pro the host for you?
UK-based Web Trade Pro has been providing affordable web-hosting services since 2007. Founded in Manchester by Paul Smith, the firm specializes in shared and dedicated hosting for small businesses and independent entrepreneurs. For a moderate monthly fee, Web Trade Pro will register your domain, set up your hosting account, and help you build and launch your professional grade website.
Web Trade Pro places an emphasis on simplicity and affordability, offering feature-rich web-hosting plans that deliver the basic resources small business owners and independent bloggers need to establish themselves on the world wide web. The bulk of the firm's services are geared toward shared hosting solutions, all of which include free setup, free domain registration, and free email with the latest POP3 protocols. Web Trade Pro's shared hosting plans include a number of key features that should appeal to client's with limited IT or web management experience. These include a free website builder (included with every account), and access to a wide selection of one-click install apps ranging from WordPress and Drupal to Zen Cart and Magento. Web Trade Pro's shared hosting plans also benefit from daily off-site backups and a guaranteed 99.9% uptime.
In addition to basic shared hosting services, Web Trade Pro also offers dedicated server plans for those clients with more demanding data and hosting concerns. The firm's dedicated server plans provide 2 GB to 16 GB RAM and monthly bandwidth allowances of 5,000 GB to 10,000 GB. Web Trade Pro's dedicated hosting plans rely on Dell PowerEdge servers with Intel Xeon processors, and are supplied with Linux CentOS computing platforms. Client's have their choice of either cPanel or WHM hosting platforms, installed for an additional fee.
Standard support is available during regular business hours, with additional technical support available via email or online chat.
Web Trade Pro enforces a strict zero tolerance spam policy, and client's found to be violating that policy will have their accounts terminated immediately. The firm also prohibits the hosting of unlawful material, including unauthorized file sharing and pornography.
While Web Trade Pro does provide daily backups for all hosted data, the security of that data rests solely with the account holder. Clients are also responsible for their own data security measures, including firewalls and antivirus protocols.
Web Trade Pro bills on a monthly cycle, with discounts available for those clients who opt for multi-year contracts. The firm only accepts payment via PayPal or authorized bank transfer.
Web Trade Pro states that it operates servers throughout the UK and the United States. However, there is no indication as to whether they own their own datacenters or merely rent space from larger firms. We could also find no information regarding the locations of the datacenters, the enforced maintenance protocols (on-site or off-site), or their active security measures.
Web Trade Pro offers competitively priced web-hosting services for small and large enterprises. Their basic hosting packages provide enough features to allow smaller businesses with minimal IT resources to establish a professional web presence, and their dedicated server plans are fairly robust (especially at this price point). It's worth noting, however, that the firm's lack of specified security features may put some users off, and may require the client to bring some level of web management skills to the table. That being said, for independent bloggers and businesses looking to launch static websites the firm's offerings should more than fit the bill. Ecommerce sites, and those handling more sensitive data, may want to speak directly with a Web Trade Pro representative about additional security features to supplement their active accounts.
