Do not value old customer
I have been with Powweb for 7 years. I have no plan to leave with auto pay every years. They raised my year rate 50%, but offer a 10% discount if I signed for a 3 year plan. I said no. I do not know whether they will be around for another 3 years. I said I would like to keep it at same old rate. They said no. I did not ask for their promotional rate.
So I signed up with another service provider and take advantage of the new company's ridiculous new customer promotion rate. Powweb thinks people do not want to take the time to move their domain name and email address when it is so easy to do. I did it all the time for my clients. I am a web designer.
I informed Powweb a month ago before my plan expired, and received email from Powweb confirming that. Now, Powweb asked me to sign in and check off "Do Not Renew" form otherwise they will auto renew my plan.
This is ridiculous. I chatted with them in their chat room and told them "NO".
I would not recommend Powweb to anyone after 7 [read more...]

My site never went up, I called pow web sales team who assured me they could walk me through what I wanted 2 weeks and 277 dollars later Nothing! I had provided them with what I wanted each time I had to talke to a different suport guy who said if you want that you have to buy this then we can do that. The last one I talked to said that is not what the company does finaly honesty after I spent the money! I cancled my order was told I would get a refund 1 year later i am looking at my bank statement and being charged. When i called I was told the origanal refund was set aside for future purches, another billing specilist called me back said 93 dollars was being refunded Not their yet. This is a SCAM!!!!!!! Stay far far away. I wish i had.

I experienced the same problem as Barry. My creditcard was billed twice for two consecutive years AFTER cancellation of the service due to poor service and malfunctioning of scripts.
It has been impossible to contact customer service and to resolve the problem. I have now applied for a new creditcard in an attempt to resolve the issue.

Editorial Review

At PowWeb, we understand that our customers' websites are "mission critical." PowWeb provides state-of-the-art "load-balanced" Web hosting platform to ensure maximum uptime. PowWeb was founded in 1999 and has established a leadership position in the "low cost" Web hosting industry by meeting the needs of small-to-medium sized businesses.

Today, PowWeb remains unbeatable in terms of reliability, quality, and performance in the Web hosting industry. By continuing to listen to our customers, we continue to learn, grow and evolve our business into the #1 choice for Web hosting

PowWeb is one of the few webhosting companies that stands on our own two feet. We develop our own custom Web hosting software and automation tailored directly to our customers' needs. Our entire infrastructure was built and developed in-house by our programmers and developers to cater to our satisfied customers. We manage, own and operate our entire network and all of our equipment.

Load-Balanced Hosting Technology
PowWeb's proprietary "Load-Balanced Hosting" solution eliminates all single points of failure. By load balancing our servers, your website will have multiple paths to its destination. This is the same technique used with large corporations hosting mission-critical websites.

Standard Solution
The common problem with the standard hosting solution is that it does not offer true redundancy. Every "single point" of failure will be your weakest point. Should problems arise, your website will be temporarily down until the problem is resolved. This solution offers no redundancy.

Load Balanced Technology
PowWeb's hosting solution offers complete true, redundancy from point A to point B. There are multiple paths for your visitor to access your website at every given point. We distribute the load of a single website across multiple physical servers. If one server goes down, there is no noticeable effect on end users and no downtime.

Starting a website with PowWeb is easy and affordable. Our simple "One Plan" package offers a complete All-in-One hosting solution with plenty of disk space, bandwidth and additional features. All sites will reside on our "Load Balanced Technology" Platform!

Microsoft Exchange, the latest in business-class email management and collaboration from Microsoft, is the simple way to manage email, calendars, contacts and tasks from anywhere, anytime.

With Microsoft Exchange you can
* View your email, contacts and schedule from any location
* Get free desktop licenses to load on any computer you use
* Use your PDA to sync your email, contacts and schedule

I am a Vietnamese webmaster, at first i am love to use the service of Dreamhost, but in the first time i using my visa card, i got some problem and finally i fix it but Dreamhost dont accept my money and refund without any good reason.

Recently, i see the hosting plan and the technology of powweb i love it too, and it have already good price. I ordered it, and and the end of order, it temporary close my order for the billing team checking.

I feel so terrible when need to call them ('cause my bad ENG), but I tried to chat live with their support 24/7. They verify my order,..etc.. it's easy and simple. My order have active soon. While i using, my script dont work, i live chat with them again, and they quickly solve that problem for me.

I feel very convience about their Live chat support (sales, technical,..).

I got double billed on a renewal and can't get it fixed. Online support has been terrible and phone support no good. Now I have to get my credit card to contest the charges.

Powweb's PHP-MySQL infrastructure is trashed. When they were bought by Endurance in 2006, they promised an improved CGI platform. This is not the case. MySQL queries take up to 3 seconds on my CMS. Sometimes it loads quickly (under 2 seconds) and some pages load in 120 seconds. They are just not reliable if you use MySQL. Plain HTML hosting is fine.
