Web.com Hosting Review
Web.com is a full solution provider that offers domain registrations, website hosting, website design/building, eCommerce hosting, SEO, paid traffic marketing, SSL Certificates and so much more. Their shared hosting offer is what we’re reviewing in our shared hosting review site section below.
Currently, we’re unable to find an upgrade path after shared hosting.
Web.com ProsBasically limitless disk space and bandwidth.
Web.com ProblemsThe price you see is not the price you’ll pay after just one month of use.
Web.com Hosting Plans Review
Web.com offers 3 hosting plans to choose from. Besides what is pictured, the main differences from each plan is the amount of MySQL Databases, FTP accounts, email boxes, directory pointers and disk space will be received. Based on our evaluation, most customers will be fine with the Essential hosting plan.
Essential Hosting Pricing Review
Yikes. This is the epitome of what we hate about the bait and switch approach to web hosting pricing. The advertised price you see all over their website? Yeah, that price is only available for a single month. We’re not kidding. We did a fake checkout (which requires you to register an account to even get to pricing) and found the following:
- 1 Month: $5.95/mo however, renews at $12.95/mo afterwards.
- 12 Months: $119.52/yr. That’s $9.96/mo.
- 24 Months: $239.04/2 years. That’s still $9.96/mo.
How does this not upset and frustrate every single customer that decides to host through web.com?
