Web Hosting Pad

Web Hosting Pad is the least expensive cpanel web hosting services in the field, but that may not necessarily be a good thing. $1.99 per month sounds like a great deal, especial in exchange for unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth, limitless e-mail and FTP accounts, as well as unlimited databases. There is an old saying that should seem incredibly relevant at this point: everything that glitter is not always gold. The first indication of this might be the little star on the Webhostingpad homepage next to the price of $1.99*/month.

The $1.99/month rate is only available for those willing to agree to a 3 year contract. You DO have to pay up front, so the cost is $71.64 for 3 years and there is a 30 day money back guarantee.  If you are not happy with Webhostingpad for any reason, I recommend canceling within the first 30 days.  You can find plenty of other cheap cpanel hosting for just a little bit more.  It seems unlikely that web hosting will be too much cheaper than the $2 per month asked by Web Hosting Pad.

So what does $1.99 a month buy? An unlimited everything account with a CPanel Control Panel.  You will also have  support for osCommerce e-commerce suite, Joomla! and Mambo support, support for PHP/PERL/Python, PHP Nuke, unlimited SQL databases, all of the basic e-mail features one could ask for, dual-XEON RAID protected servers, weekly backups, SSI, CGI-BIN support, and the ability to host additional unlimited additional domains which are sold separately.

One thought on “Web Hosting Pad

  1. The one thing they don’t tell you anywhere in advance,
    is that you MUST use Secure FTP to change, modify, and upload any of your pages. This makes for a major pain sometimes. Good deal for the price. But, be aware of SFTP requirement.
