Web Hosting Hub has quickly become one of the most popular hosting providers on the market. To find out what the buzz was all about I decided to give them a try. For the test I bought a small business-hosting plan, as it’s what many of our visitors choose. More than just going through the order process I sent a couple questions to the support team (a friendly and knowledgeable support team is often a reflection of the overall quality and the other way around), played around with the control panel and examined their reliability.
Value for Money
The monthly fee is $3.95 if you sign up for the 36 months. A pretty good deal if you ask me. If you don’t want to be tied up that long you have the alternative of paying $4.95 per month for 24 months or $5.95 per month for the 12-month plan. A domain is included for free, regardless of plan, but if you want total domain privacy you’ll have to add $9 – something that is recommended by Web Hosting Hub to avoid spammers and telemarketers. Automated secure backups are another recommended item, which will cost you an extra $1 per month. Other than that, all the necessary features are included and no matter what plan you choose I am certain that you will get your money’s worth with Web Hosting Hub.
Performance & Reliability
Although they do not have an uptime guarantee Web Hosting Hub seems to be a strong and reliable company. Their average uptime is somewhere around 99.98% according to their support team. This is also backed up by various statistics I was able to view. The numbers clearly show that Web Hosting Hub is a reliable and high-performing web host. Remember that you also have a 90-day money back guarantee that you can use if you wouldn’t be pleased with their services.
For this test I decided to contact them via their live chat support. I didn’t have to wait long till I was in contact with their support team and I asked the man behind the keyboards three questions. I asked one easy, one mid-level and one tricky question. The first question was a no brainer and I got a response immediately. The other two took a little longer for him to respond to but I nevertheless got all the help I wanted. Two thumbs up for the support!
• Live Chat
• Support Ticket
As you can see there are a lot of different ways to get in contact with their support team. You’ll never have to worry about having to walk alone (if you don’t want to) with Web Hosting Hub.
Ease of use
Web Hosting Hub is a great host if you’re not very experienced when it comes to setting up and managing websites. The control panel is easy to navigate/understand and it didn’t take me long before I got it all figured out. I’d also like to give an extra plus for the user-friendliness of the file manager. Very good indeed.
It’s easy to find everything you need in the control panel and the “Getting Started Wizard” as well as the “Video Tutorials” which are perfect tools for a little extra assistance. I always find it a good thing to watch the tutorials while I, for example, set up an FTP account. This way it’s impossible to go wrong.
• The user-friendly control panel
• All the great features that are included
• That the hosting is so stabile even though its low price
Important to know
• Hosting plans are for smaller websites
• No uptime guarantee
In my experience Web Hosting Hub is a great option for
people looking to set up a fun personal website or a small
online business. The setup is easy and the control panel
is one of the best I’ve ever worked with. They haven’t
missed out on a single feature and you’ll even get some
great bonuses that you won’t find elsewhere.Although the support was a bit impersonal with the Live
Chat, I did get the help I needed and I didn’t have to
wait many minutes to get in contact with them. All in all,
Web Hosting Hub is quality host that I believe can make a
lot of people happy.
