I've been with Catalog.com since March, 2002. I have 3 sites hosted, nothing high traffic, mostly hobby stuff. I do recall the transition from catalog to webhero was a bit rocky, and yes my sites were hacked a few years ago, only affecting the index files and a few scripts "no biggie". I'd become accustomed to the 120.00 annual unlimited unix rate and the 12.00 annual reg fee, I guess I got lazy. I've never contacted tech support...ever! I did notice what seemed to be a more frequent charge to my CC recently, so I reviewed the CC account summaries, as well as the webhero account history. The three domains combined were running 396.00 annually....for years.
After reviewing the account history for these domains, I've been charged well over 1100.00 this past year! And when did a 12.00 reg fee become 207.00, 216.00, and 132.00??? Needless to say, any further charges to this CC have been blocked. Try their "live chat" I'm sure that'll work.
We rely on smtp to send email receipts from our registration web modules. This service has been down for over a week. Webhero suggests using imap or our ISPs email. They clearly have no clue how this impacts the business of their users. We will be moving.

In late 1994 we started working on launching an Internet Company. We launched Dallas Internet in March of 1995 providing dial-up services to customers in the Dallas, TX area. Looking to grow on our ISP services and get more into the web hosting industry we purchased Catalog.com in 1998. Catalog.com started hosting in 1994 and was one of the world's first shared hosting companies.
In 2004 Catalog.com moved it's web hosting & domain registration services to our WebHero.com

We are a nonprofit who has hosted with WebHero since 2004. Our WebHero hosting rates increased 47% at renewal time without any advance notice. Our 2012 renewal bill was $50 for the hosting club and $149.50 for 12 months hosting (equalling about $12.50/mo for hosting compared to our 2011 rate of about $8.50/mo) WebHero's only explanation to us was that they offer 24/7 USA support. They also said we were to expect continued rate increases given the improvements to their website and services (the improved service is that you can now use their installer to load WordPress, etc - versus their previous system that charged $10 each time. Also, they have finally installed a modern, usable control panel). We did not appreciate, or expect, a 47% increase in fees and especially did not expect it to happen without any advance notice to us. WebHero is nonnegotiable on this issue. As a result, we are switching ISPs immediately. Our new ISP rate is $4/mo (locked in for 3 years), C-panel, and 24/7 USA [read more...]
I've used webhero for years and they are incredible. I've seen them set up a brand new site in less than two hours. Their customer support is incredible. I love their user interface for managing my account, and their ticket system. They have webmail, and great support features that lead you step by step (with pictures!) on how to do things. They are great.
I'm looking to for a new host.
