Webhostingpad is one of the newer generations of web hosts. Sometimes old dogs struggle with new tricks, and the web is constantly refreshing its technologies. So, when Webhostingpad hit the scene, combining next generation tools and competitive prices, the budget web hosting market became very interesting. Since then, Webhostingpad has kept pressure on the competition, by keeping its customers, and earning rave reviews.

Webhostingpad provides it’s clients with access to a Public Network with capacity of over 150+ Gbps and 10 Gbps between network layers. Featuring all-Cisco equipment, the network is designed to scale and above all else be reliable and resilient no matter what is thrown it’s way.

Money Back Guarantee
As with any good host, Webhostingpad provides a “30 day” money back guarantee. There are some nonrefundable fees, though, that you won’t get back if you choose to leave Webhostingpad right after you pay them (like fees for services beyond a selected plan or costs paid to third party providers), but that’s the common practice among hosting services. Some hosts won’t let you take your domain name with you when you leave, but Webhostingpad allows you to keep your domain name (you will just get the fee for it redacted from the refund).
Ease of Use
Webhostingpad spared no expense when preparing cPanel for its customers. As a modular web hosting control panel, cPanel is your web hosting desktop, letting you control every aspect of your site with intuitive, powerful tools. Webhostingpad customers definitely get to see cPanel at its best. All the usual features are there – statistics, file managers, database and email controls, etc – plus the Fantastico application installer, and RVsitebuilder. These two tools help you start any kind of website quickly, by installing popular systems like WordPress and Joomla, or by dressing up your simple website ideas and publishing them in record time.
