PROS / Webhostingpad allows you to add eCommerce solutions to your cloud platform.
CONS / This company limits your bandwidth and disk space more than any other company we reviewed.
VERDICT / Webhostingpad offers solutions that can meet the needs of small business owners, but you may quickly outgrow the starter package.
Webhostingpad, established in 2005, provides a variety of web solutions, including some of the best cloud hosting services. This platform offers many common features that we looked for when evaluating cloud hosting services. Many of these services are also unlimited.
The basic cloud hosting package provided by Webhostingpad allows you to create unlimited domains and subdomains under one account. Unlimited cloud hosting means that the company does not put a cap on how many domains you can host; instead, your limits are established by the amount of disk space you have. With this cloud server's basic hosting package, you are given 20GB of dedicated disk space and 100GB of bandwidth. This is the smallest amount of disk space provided by any of the cloud hosting packages we reviewed. This means that you will not be able to create as many accounts, even though the features are listed as unlimited.
For help and support, you can contact representatives 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Support is available through phone, email and live chat. When we tested these services, representatives were quick to respond over live chat and provided reliable, friendly support. While priority support is offered by this service, it is only available for an extra monthly fee.
The control panel allows you to integrate you hosting platform with a variety of popular apps. Apps you can integrate include WordPress and Joomla. This service also provides access to eCommerce features, such as a shopping cart.
Security features with Webhostingpad's basic service are more limited than other services we reviewed. While site backup is one of the features offered, this company does not help you with site restoration. Features that are included are anti-spam and an SSL certificate. This certificate is a great addition if you choose to use the eCommerce solutions.
While this service includes a variety of unlimited services, in reality, you are limited by the small amounts of disk space. If you have simple cloud hosting needs and do not require much bandwidth, than Webhostingpad is a good choice.
