Information

WinHost is a quality web host that provides its customers with affordable Windows hosting, making this a great alternative for people looking to manage a personal web site or a small online business. Even though they haven’t been in the industry for more than a few years they’ve already established themselves as one of the strongest providers on the market.

As their company name, WinHost, gives away – the focus here is on Windows hosting. This means that everyone with an ASP.NET hosting need will find what they’re looking for here. A major advantage with WinHost is that they don’t have long term contracts, meaning that you won’t be tied down for several years. Instead you will get quarterly billing. All the necessary features are of course included in the plans.

With WinHost you will get 24/7 customer support via their Support Portal – or in their WinHost forum if you’ve got pre-sale questions. Regardless, you will be given assistance in no time at all. And important to mention is that they’ve got a 30 day money-back-guarantee so there’s really nothing to worry about.

Michael recommends WinHost

Last week i had made a mistake by publishing my website with the new visual studio 2012. I didn't know i had to change a setting in the project file that prevented visual studio from updating the ACL setting on server level. Result: my website was down and there was nothing i could do. I logged a ticket at winhost support at sunday evening Belgian time. 10 minutes later i was pleasantly suprised. They fixed my issue! Thank you for the very fast support! Keep on the good work.

Just recently I transferred one of my domains from GoDaddy
to one of WinHost's Windows 2012 servers with IIS8.

Developed using WebMatrix from Microsoft it utilizes the
Razor syntax, MSSQL Server, Silverlight, and ASP.NET Web
Pages v2.

The site loads faster, runs smoother on the WinHost server,
plus it's much easier to manage because WinHost allows me
use IIS Remote Manager unlike GoDaddy. Since WinHost focuses
only on Windows server technology, The Web-Based Helpdesk
spits out the information you are looking for because it is
not muddled with every other technology known to man.

We are in the process of transferring 10 other domains to
WinHost now. Read more

Winhost was extremely professional for our entire engagement
for the following reasons:
* Responded quickly to any of our support tickets.
* We experienced absolute zero downtime during our 15
months.
* Knowledgeable support staff.
* Breadth of features (used SQL Server and latest .NET
framework)
* Performance was above average
* Ability to use native admin tools for SQL Server.
* Latest versions of SmarterMail; e-mail stability.
I really have nothing bad to say about WinHost and would
highly recommend their services.

After an extremely positive experience with Winhost I am glad to write this review for them!! They gave me great service that not many companies are prepared to give now days and not once did I have a problem with the up time. They are really good and well priced!! Keep up the great work!!

Mike DellaPietra recommends WinHost

As a Director of IT & Development at my day job and a freelancer at night - I have come across many web hosting sites and really have enjoyed utilizing WinHost as my provider.

My initial project that made me come across WinHost was necessity for a provider that specifically provided functionality for ASP.NET and SQL. After logging in to my account - I was given a very intuitive and graphically accommodating UI with the ease to setup everything that I needed AND FAST!

Did I mention cost? They were one of the cheapest I found - and that is not compromised at all as you can easily see when logging into... Read more

alexa chen recommends WinHost

Winhost is highly recommended for your web hosting service! I had to do a school project which needed an ASP.NET site and my friend immediately recommend me to winhost after i had a bad experience with another web hosting company. I didn't hold any high hopes when i first come to Winhost as it was really a bad experience with the previous web hosting company. But winhost is being really efficient, i was able to get my site up within a day and whenever i have any doubts or troubles i will email them and the response is really quick and helpful. After 3 months, my project ended and i... Read more

Nice windows hosting, personalized control panel but it works ok. It is possible to choose a plan with higher dedicated pool memory. the default is 100mb not bad.

Chad recommends WinHost

I've been using Winhost since July 2011.

Pros:

+ Reasonable prices
+ Good support
+ Decent up-time
+ Comprehensive control panel app
+ Full trust

Cons:

+ There's currently no way to backup your database
automatically (search their form for the subject database
backups). They backup your database every day but they only
keep a few days of backups available so if you don't
discover corruption or problems within that _very_ narrow
window then your data is gone for good.

I can't recommend them enough. These guys are very good. They offer a great product at a great price. I switched my 2 personal websites to WinHost from that other major hosting/domain company some time ago. I've not been happier. The pricing is great, the service has been exemplary, and I\'ve not had any issues with up time. When I was with my previous host, I thought about leaving every time I had to make changes to my site. Now I go to WinHost, make the changes I need to make and never look back. These guys are really really good - and... Read more
