Basically you get what you pay for, minimal basic service.
If something goes wrong, I get the impression the plan is just trial and error till you go away, seemingly repeating the same basic 'solutions' like your are too stupid to understand the first several times, while ignoring details you provide to make the problem clear. I had repeated email problems that take a lot of hassle to get fixed. I just don't have confidence in the reliability of the service

2.fast reply
3. responsive online chat.
4. good technical support

Run away from this provider as fast as you can!
Webhostingpad has applied charges to my credit card without my permission and REFUSES to remove them!! Trying to resolve them with staff has brought me to tears due to their rudeness. I have been told by someone named Jason, who sTs he is a Lead, that: If I could read this never would have happened. The charges stay.

I've been told that this company uses something called 'passive permission' as a cover to charge people's credit cards, and that if enough of us complain they will be forced to give all of us a refund. Well, how about it? Are their any others out there who feel as ripped off as this Grandma does? Let's stand together and get our money back.

Don't forget to tell all your friends to run as far away from this company as they can when looking for a web hosting site. There are lots out there that are cheaper, better, and customer focused!

"Until Webhostingpad, I didn’t know companies existed where someone could answer the phone after only a few rings, or respond right away when chatting. Thanks to their smaller size, they can be a lot more personal and helpful than other companies that have been around a long time but are much less personable. What a breath of fresh air from GoDaddy. Thanks Webhostingpad!"
Jeremy S. ( jerrapp@y... ) /
Travis from support helped me buy a domain, set up a blog, create an email, and connect to my FTP client in only half an hour! He was pleasant and understanding the whole time. No wonder they're received awards for best support, it doesn't get much better than this.
Oh my gosh, two words: AFFILIATE PROGRAM. Webhostingpad has the BEST! It's just incredible. They offer the lowest-priced hosting package but the highest payout for referrals. Ever since I started promoting them I have gotten a lot more sales because people are really attracted to their low price, so it's a win-win situation. I don't know how Webhostingpad does it, people must really like their service and stay with it, but as far as I've seen they just have the best affiliate program around for budget/shared hosting companies.
I love being able to talk to a live person for support. Not to mention that so far my calls were picked up right away, no hold time. Everyone I've talked to is friendly and obviously cares about their customer's needs. I really love Webhostingpad because I feel my needs are cared about and taken care of. Thank you Webhostingpad and especially the support team.
Hello, back again. My site was published and you all are welcome to go and take a look at it. The reason I'm back is simply to update & complete my former testimonial! From the beginning I had good feelings about WebHostingPad . But NOW things are much different, I'm here to confirm and express my thanks and appreciation to my beloved web hosting company for their help and effort. For their patience, taking time to read my 200 SOS mails answer immediately ,and solve the problems by their own or explaining. They are the BEST. No one , I said none can beat WebHostingPad's FAST support and HELP which was beyond my imagination. Thanks to their support, care, help, suggestions , I finally managed to put up on line my first biggest mmorpg fansite web site. When it comes to PICKING a WEB HOST ,take in consideration their SUPPORT. Without good support nothing else matters. I wish you all best of luck and on top of that HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009
Salut and Hello from Paris. I'm new too. Awesome folks , great service for a very little price!Their support is one of the best supports I have ever seen. They are always there, with great suggestions and real HELP.
I had no down time problems, or slow page download! I I strongly suggest you give them a try since they really worth the TRUST.

Admin aionborder
Still new , but they are very good . Much better than my former one.
I'm using WebHostingPad since January.

I've made about 7 support tickets, and everytime I ask from help from the support team, they always answer me in about 20 minutes - It's the best support I've ever had!

The server is really fast and since January it has been 100% online.

I really recommend this server if you are looking for a great support.

webhostingpad will slam your card, do not give them visa info!!!
RIPPOFF!!

I did not renew.

I did not give permission to charge my account without my knowledge.

You force me to renew against my permission.

You save my info, then STEAL with it later???

SHAME ON YOU!!!

REFUND WHAT YOU TOOK!!!!!
NOW!!!

Hello,

Unfortunately, there would be no refund for this account since you did not cancel your service prior to the renew date. We sent out a 30 days renewal notice, if you did not want to renew your account, you would have to submit a cancellation form prior to the date to avoid getting charge. We can reactivate your account but we can not provide this account with a refund.

Please see our Billing Policy for more information regarding this matter.

No problems whatsoever and good customer service. A+ Price was very reasonable... much less that yahoo which I had before. It was very easy to transfer my domain there and the pre supplied software to launch a blog made it incredibly easy. I am very satisfied as an intermediate level user.

Webhostingpad is primarily a shared hosting company and I started like that. Now keep in mind that shared hosting is only good for small websites with visitors ranging in 100s or so. For 6-7 months it all worked fine and the website was up the 99% of times. But my website grew bigger and started to attract more than 2k users. At this point my account was suspended and I was given the choice to upgrade to VPS.

I did upgrade and though VPS is not their specialization, over all the experience has been good. The usually respond to the tickets within an hour or so. Their customer support doesn't appear to be very organized, but at the end of the day they get the job done. So, I would recommend Webhosting pad for folks who are in need of a cheap shared hosting option, but remember it is not meant for heavy traffic websites.

I think that out of every hosting company this is by far the absolute worst company when it comes to service, they have hardly any staff, and the ones that you can talk to are all "level 1" techs, i used the " " before and after cause i think the average rock has more brains for a tech than these guys, they have admins that are able to do their jobs, why they cant hire at least three to help with calls instead of having them all only use e-mail does not make sense.... their are only a few things that the stupid level one techs can do, they are not smart enough to look at a site to figure out DNS issues, e-mail issues, they have no education or common sense to google an issue they dont understand. Oh and they have a real big damn issue with the LACK of ability to listen. If a hosting company is going to hire people to act as a tech it is expected the techs should know about the !@#$% proccess/service/product they are being hired to support, I am so close to paying an extra 100 [read more...]

Webhostingpad.com is the worst web host scam in the world. Two years ago, I made the mistake of signing up for two years of hosting through Webhostingpad.com. Three months later, I cancelled my account (lost all of my money I paid for two years) and I went to a much better web host.

Then, I just discovered Webhostingpad.com illegally billed my credit card again for another two years without my permission! I emailed Webhostingpad.com about this, and they responded in their typical fashion- rude and ugly. I reported this fraud to my credit card company and had the charge removed. I have filed a complaint with the IC3 and the FBI. I also filed a report with the Secret Service, and am working on a report with the Attorney General and the Better Business Bureau.

If only I could award zero stars, I would after the frustrating experience I've had with WebHostingPad. It was so highly rated when I purchased the service in 2009, if I'd known how things would turn out, I never would have done it.

I contacted them about transferring domain management for my business website about a week before it was set to expire. I followed all of the steps they gave me, confirmed my credit card and agreed to the charge. Apparently they did nothing. Unfortunately I didn't learn this until the domain expired, the grace period was through, and the website and email went down. First they told me they had no record of the request, then when I gave them the support ticket number, they said they'd refund me any fees since they hadn't done the transfer. (They also made a point of saying that it was my fault for not following up on the request.) Andrew Zahn, the support and billing manager there, was the one who didn't complete the initial request and refused to take [read more...]

My account was suspended without warning on two occasions, the support is terrible not know how to help provide solutions for novices who do not respond to the problem. The delay in response is too long.
Not recommended for anything.

My next hosting payment will go to Webhostingpad. I've had several hosting companies and none compare to Webhostingpad in overall value of investment.

Webhostingpad have one of the best customers services I have ever came across in my life, They are very dedicative to customers and very caring which most companies lacks this days, I advice everyone who have a personal or business websites to switch to just host its the only way to be satisfied with 100% support from excellent team, I have been treated very well unlike other hosting that i hosted with previously, I'm glad good people still exists some where out there.

Thank you Webhostingpad,

Webhostingpad is not all that bad, but they do have their issues.

I've dealt with some really fly by night host companies, so perhaps this makdes WHP look better to me than they actually are. Anyway, the good then the bad;

The price is good, domain propagation is fast on new sites (I have 3 with them now), data transfer speeds are good, the cpanel fantastico and all of the scripts make managing the site a breeze. Whenever changes are made to the site, even major changes like moving a bunch of content to a new subdomain, the propagation is pretty much instant. FTP and email services are quick and speedy, and there are almost no limits on file types. Support responds quickly.

Now for the bad. About once a month the entire domain will go down (website, email, everything) and will not come back up until I contact them. Support does respond quickly (usually less than an hour) but until they're notified, it will stay down. The response is always the same, "the DNS server was reset [read more...]

"Buyer Beware". Last year I saw a WebHosting pad ad that said "Free Domain Name for Life". In fact I still have a screen capture of that ad. Also in their website main page it states there "Free Domain Name", so when I received an email that they charged me this year for domain name renewal I told them about the free domain name which they said is only for the first year. They said that in the users agreement (I guess buried somewhere) that it states it is only free for a year. Well, this is certainly false advertising. SO BUYER BEWARE. There are others hosting site that really offer free domain names, but Webhotingpad is not one of them. I made the mistake of signing up for 3 years.

Webhostingpad.com is the worst web host scam in the world... Two years ago, I made the mistake of signing of for two years of hosting. Three months later, I cancelled my account (lost all of my money I paid for two years)... and I went to a much better web host. Then, I just discovered they illegally billed my credit card again for another two years without my permission. I emailed them about this, and they responded in their typical fashion- rude and ugly. I reported this fraud to my credit card company and had the charge removed. I have filed a complaint with the IC3 and the FBI. I also filed a report with the Secret Service, and am working on a report with the Attorney General and the Better Business Bureau.
I want to apologize for your inconvenience. I have definitely seen this boilerplate review elsewhere and I can understand that you are upset. We do our best to make sure these instances do not happen and that our customers are satisfied. Again, I apologize on behalf of WHP and hope you give us a shot in the future.

Webhostingpad.com is without a doubt the worse hosting company I have ever dealt with. My site went down weekly for hours at a time and I have seen better tech support at computer camps. The last straw for me was catching them lying to me about a server issue. It aggravated me so bad that I called and shut down my VPS account. Within 10 minutes I received an email from them informing me that my other account was a victim of a DDOS attack and all my data was lost. When I complained I was told Webhostingpad.com does not need my business. I challenge webhostingpad to prove my review is wrong or misleading ... I have all my emails ... do they????
I want to apologize for your treatment with our company. We have hired some new tech support people that have been wonderful with our customers. I hope that you chose to host with us again, Mr. Johnson.

I contacted them but they said they will not provide me the hosting services and I have to move to some other provider and I did it. Instead of blocking or stopping hackers they suspended my account.

When I contacted their billing department to refund my 6 month hosting fee which I paid they denied stating that somebody does not like your site and hackers were trying to hack your site and that cause our server problem.

I’ve been with Webhostingpad about 2 years now. That’s the longest amount of time I’ve ever spent with a hosting company. So why Webhostingpad? Here are my reasons:

Support is nice, well-trained/knowledgeable, and responsive.
Reliability is superb. I’ve hardly seen my site down in my whole 2 years and no customer has ever complained.
Price. Price. Price.
cPanel is the most up-to-date one – lots of other hosting companies either don’t use cpanel or have an old version.

Those are my reasons. As long as I can have these things, I will be a loyal customer to Webhostingpad.

Our trial web site was originally set up with Godaddy last year, then we found it is difficult for us to customize our own web site. So we requested Domain transfer to webhostingpad. It is very difficult process due to Godaddy's holding up our domain with security reason after security reasons... I was so embarrassed to webhostingpad to reinitialized the transfer over and over (3 times), and they do it without any question... Finally, we got our domain transferred to Webhostingpad (about 1 month's struggle). We are happily hosted with them ever after. Great support and great price!

Note: we are professional web store seller and we have our own VPS as well. This web site is just for new business adventure.

They also never shown me any evidence such as server log etc to prove it. I was told by the manager that I would get a prorated refund as i signed up for three year service. I then filed my cancellation request and has been waiting for a refund. Then I enver got a message back from them again. I tried to submit a few tickets to complain this issue, then they closed my tickets without explaining me why I have not received the money back after two months.

Webhostingpad is First Class company in CHEATING. I availed shared hosting service from them with free domain registration. They did registration but did not make it available. You can check www.arivujeevi.com in your name server lookup. I asked them to refund my money as per their 30 days money back gaurantee terms but they have swallowed my money.

Follow these rules,

1) Do not go for cheap hosting
2) Do not get mouth watered to see 'Free Domain' offer
3) You better register the domain with any authorized registrar and you be the owner of the domain. Do not let bastards like webhostingpad to take advantage of your ass by giving them a chance to screw you i.e they register the domain under their name and you can forget about having your ownership. They do not let you know transfer the domain.


Finally, I have filed the complaint against webhostingpad with BBB and waiting for their action. I do not know how far BBB can help punishing the guilty.

I recommend Webhostingpad to my friends all the time simply because they are the cheapest and have a great service to go with it. I started off by creating my sites with RVSiteBuilder, which is a really easy program to use for those who have NO knowledge about how to make websites. Now, though, I’m making simple sites through Dreamweaver and found it’s not really confusing to upload them. Webhostingpad’s support really helped me there. So thanks for everything.

When I first saw their Advertisement on a Blog, I was really impressed with the value they were giving. Unlimited Hosting for just $4.99.

Though I am very well aware that there is no such thing as unlimited. Its just a way to oversell. But I was hopeful that if not unlimited, I would be comfortable with about 75-100 GB Space for my BlogSite.

Thinking this I signed up with them. I got the welcome mail with the login details.
When I saw my cpanel details, the total space alloted was 10 GB. I asked about this and the WHP support told me that this is the initial quota they supply and will increase it as and when required. I agreed and continued using my space.

Now after about an year, my space (10 GB) is nearing Full. I called them up again to discuss the increasing the space they had promised in the beginning.

But, to my utter surprise, they have DECLINED to increase the space, claiming that I am not allowed to use a Blog.

Sure, there are a few problems – my sites have been down a couple of times, and during peak hours support has taken about 15 minutes to answer. But there’s no such thing as a perfect host, and Webhostingpad’s service is unquestionably equivalent to the services of hosts that cost $7, $8, $9 per month.

The services they offer are fine. The responsiveness of their shared cluster is acceptable for the price range. CPanel implementation seems to work acceptably. I built 1 site, then went back to build a 2nd and found that you cannot have 2 sites under the same email address there, a big strike. So after creating another email address to use for my second site, their php signup form was broken, telling me the site was not created due to the credit card being invalid while 1 minute later i received a confirmation email at the address specified. I was bounced around to 3 different tech support personnel, all who failed to understand the situation and did not diagnose the issue. If you do not have issues with webhostingpad, i am sure they will be an acceptable host. If you do have issues, i would not have confidence that they will attempt to handle them promptly or even to a satisfactory level. Use at your own risk.

Webhostingpad.com SUCKS. Their billing practices are fraudulent and rebill you without permission.
When you had signed up with the account, you agreed to our billing policy ( http://www.webhostingpad.com/billing_policy.html ) which states that unless you cancel the account, it is set to automatically renew. This allows for your service to run without being interrupted.

the webhostingpad support really focuses on empowering its customers not only by helping them deal with the issues their customers are having but also by explaining what the problem was and how that problem can be dealt with in the future. I feel as if, the more i have contact with their support team, the more knowledgeable i become and now I hardly ever have to contact them. their support is really great unlike bluehost who just sent me links to their knowledgebase articles whenever i asked them a question. webhostingpad is much more personal and they put much more effort into helping their customers.

Let me preface this review by presenting my opinion: Web Hosting Pad (webhostingpad.com) has been the worst overall hosting experience I have ever had, and I have had many.

I signed up for one year of service at Web Hosting Pad ("WHP"). I was enticed by the huge space and bandwidth promises. I was naive and I soon found that it was a big mistake. Somehow I didn't think through the fact that hosting companies like WHP don't have the resources to really offer such huge space. They offer such huge space for marketing reasons and if anyone actually took them up on their feature list, they would be in trouble.

I was pissed off two months in - past the 30 day money back guarantee. I got the hint that they are running hundreds of different people's shared accounts on each server after speaking with a tech support agent. The equipment is underfunded, inefficient, and slow. My sites were down at least half the time during one month with no explanation for the downtime. After repeated [read more...]

This has to have been the worst webhosting comapny I have ever delt with. I should have known that a low cost hosting comapny would be disaster. cPanel was shotty. Customer support was an absolute joke. If they didn't know what the problem was they simply stopped talking to you (online chat).

If you sign up be prepared for lots of unexplained down time and no customer support.
We sincerely apologize for your experience. As far as customer support, we never close off a conversation; however, please be aware that there are often multiple chats going on simultaneously.
Please send detailed descriptions of the other specific issues you've been having to manager@webhostingpad.com, and they will be resolved.

Webhostingpad doesn't allow DNS control and I try to contact them more than a week to get the control for my domains, all my sites are down.
Very not recommended Hosting!
As we are not an ICANN domain registrar, we don't have direct access to domain management. We partner with a registrar to provide domain name registrations. This is a common practice among web hosting companies.
Also, as we are available 24/7, we do respond to tickets around the clock and as quickly as possible. Conditions that may slow down responses include, but are not limited to: re-responding to a ticket prior to us responding which moves the ticket bottom of the support queue, cc'ing the ticket to multiple tickets, or wait times for the customer to reply back.

I really like Webhostingpad. The support guys are really nice and showed me how to do everything. I think Webhostingpad makes hosting simple and easy to do. I don't see any point in going to another hosting company if this company gives me everything I need for such a cheap price.

Web hosting pad is so great! The support people are very friendly and helpful and setup was so fast, smooth, and easy. So far I haven’t had a single problem and was only impressed by how much they offer, and continue to offer, customers for a very good price. I wouldn’t go with any other company.

Warning !!! Webhostingpad.com took my money and give me nothing. I still can not access the server. They not answer my emails. They are sending automatically emails with links to support ticket and when I click the links my firewall are blocking the links telling me about spayware look like this ert47.a1.wrs. so I decide to cancel the account. I have used the cancellation request form but still not receive any response from them, only automatically links to the support ticket with the spayware link. My website look like this ,Simpson's constructions page, not accessible start page. I did not get my money refund.
Your site was never actually down. The Simpsons page you see is a temporary placeholder file until you publish your website. As for the support ticket auto-responses, there are no spyware in them. They are automatically generated confirmations, so if your firewall is blocking them, then you need to reconfigure your firewall to receive those responds to your emails. More than likely, you have been getting responses from us but are not receiving them because of your firewall.

Web hosting pad is by far the best hosting company I’ve worked with. For someone like me who can’t afford much more, but need all the features they offer, I was so happy to find that Web Hosting Pad not only has both but also a great support service. The technical guys there have only been helpful. I am a very satisfied customer.

This is such a great hosting company. Whenever I had a problem I just called it in and they helped me so much. For example, I was having trouble installing Wordpress and WP themes, so I submitted a ticket about it and within an hour it was all done for me. Also I didn’t know hosting could be so cheap, and with the coupon I had, I saved so much more than if I’d gone with someone else. My site has also been up 99% with very good speed. I’m very happy with Webhostingpad. Thank you for your great service!

Chalk me up as another DIS-satisfied customer of WHP. I can count on one hand the number of hours my site was up in a 3 week period.

Something has happened over at WHP and whatever it is it's not good.

Sure their prices are great...maybe to suck as many people in before they shut their doors or something.

STAY AWAY... there are too many good companies out there for you to waste your time with this outfit.

Web Hosting Pad has incredible prices for so much. I couldn’t believe I found such a good company. No hidden fees, a free site builder, 100% uptime in the past year, an affiliate program. Definitely can’t find more for your money than with Web Hosting Pad! WHP, great job.

I have power plan w/ dedicated server. Webhosting Pad gives a lot of hype in their home page - but you better have very extensive web master knowledge if you want everything to work. They have lots of bells and whistles for a low price - I feel like suing for false advertising. When I signed up they made it sound like they transfer old site for you. They tell you how to work FTP. They advertise Noah's classified - I singed up for it figuring it to be point click and fill in the blanks - no it's raw data base. They promise Cgi bin, and form mail when I asked for route - they said they don't support form mail, or as they word it NOBODY mail, as if my customers are nobody. Then they tried to sell me access to form mail, when I said I should talk to my attorney, they gave me a route for form mail, and cgi bin. But they would only do one form. Support is a joke, I was on chat w/ long waits, then asked to email support? Who was I just chatting with? Most email replies are 3-4 hours. [read more...]

Webhostingpad is the best, there is no better hosting company out there, and I have tried many. WHP is reliable, helpful, advanced, cheap, easy-to-use, their staff is very personable, patient and helpful. I love Webhostingpad, I recommend them to all my clients and to anyone who wants the best hosting service there is.

I've used this service about 7 months and it seems that the service keeps getting worse and worse. As mentioned in other reviews, I have had files deleted before with no notice of deletion or without them acknowledging that the did. The bad thing was it wasn't even copyrighted material! They were basic html pages that were part of my church's website. That was early on and hasn't happened again yet, and I hope it doesn't.

The access is real weird too. I am using wordpress now for the church site and while I am editing the pages, the site will be available and then all of the sudden, the server can't be found. If I wait 5 minutes and refresh it works again, and no it isn't my internet connection. Whenever I email the admins (I don't bother with regular support/chat/calling any more because I probably know more than they do.), they say they made changes to the server and for me to try again. I've emailed them at least 4 or 5 times, and nothing has changed. Same thing [read more...]

I signed up for 2 years with webhostingpad to get the best price per month. Their support answers quickly, but they tend to forget about me often, making the chat sessions unnecessarily long. The couple of phone calls I've made to them revealed that they only had one (or a few more) people answering phones - and I got the same guy on chat. He wasn't helpful or friendly. When I chatted in (today even) with an issue adding domains, the chat "Technical Support Agent" answered that I had to email someone else. What's the point of chat support?

During my first month (the month where you can get your money back if you're not satisfied) my site was quick and I didn't have any problems. After the first month, it got much much slower. I only use the site for a family website running wordpress, but it is almost unusable. I suspect they put the new accounts on the faster servers, and the older accounts (that are now stuck without an "out") on the slower/more congested servers. Others have [read more...]

I have tried few different web hosts before, but none is compared to my new web hosting host. Those who are still wondering what host , where, well try my host, you'd love their fast support, attention, c panel and web building tool and other easy to instal goodies. Thank God I try them out before trying any other.
Good luck all

I'll keep it simple. Don't host with this company, ever, please listen to me. Terrible downtime. Slow loading on pages. I have only basic HTML pages and these pages take a long time to load. It's horrible. Submit a ticket they work on getting your web site up and running. If you check it a couple of hours later (your web site) it's still down.

It sucks I got charged twice for one plan and then when I tried to get refunding they totally played games and made it really difficult for me to get my money back. So far as I am writing this I still don't have my money. Once I paid I had no email giving me access to Cpanel and never heard a thing from them. I am now put in a dispute with Pay Pal. Further more Pay Pal has not been overly helpful either. So if you decide to use this host its buyer beware big time! Very unhappy!!!!

Used to be a good service but no longer. Can't get help when you have a problem. I have not been able to get on my 3 websites for 9 days now and I can't get anyone at Webhostingpad or RVsitebuilder to help me. They keep telling me nothing is wrong on their side!!!

If nothing is wrong on their side, why is it all of a sudden, 9 months later, I can no longer get onto my 3 websites? No one has an answer for that.

I have asked for someone to call me, they have not done that, I have sent upward of 60 emails back and forth to them. They just keep saying "try it now".... I am tired of trying it now and knowing they haven't done anything different.

I have asked to have supervisors from both companies to contact me, neither have.

Would you like this experience to happen to you? If so, I would sign up with Webhostingpad, if you are thinking maybe not.... then stay far away from them.

Basic plan. Server crashed and they lost my entire site even though they say they back up every Sunday. I was on for almost a month when this happend. No backup was ever created. Then, they didn't want to give me a refund. I clearly did not want to spend more time on a website that webhostingpad hosted. I just couldn't afford more time lost.

They insisted on charging me a settup fee and lost record of my cancellation. Fortunately I had not. They did not issue my credit, I had to spend more time getting my money back for a service I wish I never initiated.

I'm extremely happy with the service and support from webhostingpad.com. You folks answer questions promptly (billing, sales or support) and the tech support is far better than what I see from other hosts. The fact that I've had my site for almost a year without any crashs or down time is very impressive.

Terrible. Plain and simple. Poor support 3 days to bring site on line, then lost site entirely and was black for 5 days with 12 hours in between support emails. Frustrated and tired of excuses called and spoke with customer support - hung up on, spoke with owner hung up on as well after I demanded full reimbursement. I was told 8-14 days. I said unacceptable and I wanted written confirmation of my refund. I was told to check my inbox. I'm not surprised - nothing from them confirming the refund.

You would not believe how bad webhostingpad.com is. They do not have any concept of customer service. They blame the customer for everything. Their server falls down at least 3 times a week. The tech support people are not only snippy but stupid. They do now know how to solve any problems. And when you politely ask for a refund, the owner sends you threatening emails. So if you are looking for a web host...pass this one up. They are cheap but so is a nightmare. Sweet dreams.

I had the very same problem with the only reason that is was my fault. Well i trasferred all the same files to a new host with no issues and the site is running great. They don't want to admit they have problems they cant fix. I have since sent a ticket to cancel my account and wish to be prorated for the months of service and have that credit back. They say after 30 days there is no refund. Here is the kicker.....everything was fine for 30 days.....then they moved my account to provide better service and they were right.....it has been nothing but SERVICE !

"Let's offer a 30 day refund and put them on the new server.....then we'll move them.....who cares we got their money and their 30 days is up!"

If your looking for a web host.....move on!

I ran through many hosting reviews and only this hosting provider came out clean. Every other major competitor had some kind of problem with them, either in their server side or in their customer relations side.

In a feature-wise comparison, this site offers everything. What they advertise is what you get ;-). And its a lot if you ask me. The cPanel is a pleasant to work with as its the best cPanel s/w in the world. So you've got support from anywhere in the world fro a very large community.

The Support team is really great here. Their response is very quick and they do what you ask and what's necessary for you. I've submitted them several regarding many issues, once about a phpmailing script, they took the liberty of creating one for me.

They have one of the fastest servers as i tested on a phpBB3 forum, it takes under 1sec to load it completely. And for the last 3 months i never had any downtime.

What's best is the unbeatable price you get after using the coupon code. [read more...]

They setup accounts VERY VERY SLOW. Although they advertise that they usually setup accounts 2 hours from the time you send payment and a maximum of 8 hours, THAT'S CRAP AND NOT TRUE! When I talked to their sales representative over the phone because my account, after 5 hours of waiting, is not yet set-up, they inform me that i have to wait for 24 hours for my account to be setup because apparently, their billing department, who apparently approved setting up of accounts, is on holiday. Great Webhostingpad, so all along your 24/7 advertisement is NOT true at all!
