WebHost.Pro Review


What started off as a conversation in 1998, quickly grew into years of experience and their own data centers. James Gardner and Charles Yarbrough founded Domain Web Hosting Service (DWHS) in 2001. In 2006 they part-owned a data center in Los Angeles.

In 2012 they became Web Host Pro and obtained their 2nd data center. They now host over 50,000 customers with a customer-first approach. They are proud to offer a 100% network uptime, and have done since 2011. Needless to say, I was intrigued to find out more!

Web Hosting

WebHost.Pro offer shared web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated servers. All of their web hosting plans come with a 45-day money-back guarantee. You’ll be able to enjoy fully scalable servers with flexible billing options.

Shared Hosting

Starting from only $2.99 per month, WebHost.Pro’s Easy plan looks to rival that of SiteGround. It offers 5GB storage, 100GB bandwidth, access to cPanel and plenty of email accounts and databases. This is an ideal plan for a small-time blogger or website newbie wanting to experiment.

Moving up a gear, the Pro plan places itself very competitively in the market. With a reasonable cost of $6.95 per month, you’ll receive SSD storage, unmetered bandwidth, and 2GB RAM.

Every plan comes with cPanel, free SSL, free domain, and a free website builder. The features that this host offers seem very reasonable to me. As a customer, I’d be happy with what’s included and wouldn’t feel like I was being conned into buying more!

Reseller Hosting

Reseller hosting starts from $9.99 per month. Each plan always includes unlimited emails, unlimited databases, WHM reseller panel, RV site builder, and a free SSL. You won’t be tied into a contract and you can choose to pay monthly, biannually, yearly, or biyearly.

VPS Hosting

If you want more control over your server, it might be worth looking at VPS hosting. Each plan runs on a SSD hard drive and offers a 45-day money-back guarantee. You’ll have root access, regardless of which plan you choose, as well as a choice of server locations.

Dedicated Servers

If you’re ready to go really big, you can enjoy a dedicated server with 100% uptime guarantee. All servers use enterprise grade Intel or comparable hardware, as well as free DDoS protection. Dedicated servers are usually setup within 24 hours.

Features

Uptime Guarantee: WebHost.Pro offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee. For the past 7 years they’ve not dropped below 100%! I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a web host with such a good track record.

No Cancellation Fee: I really despise cancellation fees! I understand that web hosting is a competitive market, and therefore customer turnover can be high. However, when a host doesn’t charge a cancellation fee, it makes me feel much more reassured about their own confidence in their company.

RV Site Builder: Each plan comes with free access to Site Publisher, a free website builder. However, for $4 extra as a one time fee, you can purchase RV Site Builder. Much like other site builders on the market, RV Site Builder is easy to use, super friendly, and simply professional. You can give it a go on their demo here.

cPanel & WHM: cPanel is a reputable control panel with tonnes of features. You’ll have free access to your favourite 1-click installers like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. From here, you can setup email accounts, filters, monitor statistics, and lots more.

Domains

As with lots of web hosting companies, WebHost.Pro also offer domain registration services. All customers are entitled to a free domain with their web hosting plans, but only if paid annually. So it does make sense that they offer a way to obtain a domain if customers choose to pay monthly.

Purchasing a domain through a web host can prove to be expensive. Domains for .com registration start from $10.99 and $19.99 for .co.uk. Hosting companies like 1&1 offer domains from as little as $0.99! Either way, for those who want to keep all their hosting services under one roof, it’s doing no harm for this host to offer them.

Customer Support

From reading about their company and first impressions, I was convinced this host’s support would be out of this world. Of course, I tested it for myself, as well as doing some research. WebHost.Pro have a large social media following, with over 27,000 users on their Facebook page.

Their Facebook page boasts 4.5/5 star reviews, with positive feedback from many. Lots of the comments focus on their customer support and services as being spot on. However, there have been a couple of less positive comments of late.

Aside from social media, you can contact WebHost.Pro via support ticket, telephone, and email. They have a large knowledgebase, video tutorials, and a wealth of guides that could probably answer any question you have.

What’s disappointing, though, is that there is no live chat option. Although their support is 24/7, it’s not possible to get an immediate answer. For me, this is something I look for in every web host. However, if I consider the features they offer as well as the amazing 100% uptime, I could be swayed!

Conclusion

WebHost.Pro is a really balanced web host. If you’re simply after a small website, you can purchase hosting from as little as $2.99 per month. Looking for something more? You can upgrade your shared hosting plan as you go. But if you want full control, you can switch to VPS hosting or even purchase a dedicated server.

What really impressed me and set this web host apart from others was there 100% uptime. They guarantee 99.9%, but they haven’t dropped below this in 7 years! If I was a web host, that’s definitely something I’d boast about.

Sure, they aren’t the most affordable web host on the market, and their features are pretty industry standard, but boy are they reliable! I would highly recommend WebHost.Pro if you’re willing to pay a little extra for outstanding performance.
