Our Review of: WebHostingHub
Web Hosting Hub is a newer entry into the personal hosting sphere, but we think it will soon challenge more established players, with its low prices and outstanding reliability. With a full feature set, 24/7 US-based support and a simplified transfer process, Web Hosting Hub is a solution that caters to everyone from individuals to bloggers to those running micro-businesses.
Located in Los Angeles, CA, with their own managed datacenters, they’re a sister company to the famous and well established InMotion Hosting, which has been around for quite a while now and as a whole employs over 150+ employees. As noted in the InMotion Hosting review, they have an excellent track record for reliability and fast, curteous support. That said, we found no reason to consider the service at Web Hosting Hub to be any less notable than services offered at InMotion.
- Owned by InMotion Hosting. A leader in reliable web hosting.
- Great for blogger web sites.
- Rated #1 in Support.
- Wish they offered more software standard on each account.
Features & Specials:
Web Hosting Hub steps into the game strongly with 12, 24 and 36-month hosting plans. You get the best deal if you sign up for the 36-month plan, when you’ll pay the low price of $3.95 per month. They also a provide a free domain name or transfer with every new hosting account, and of course there’s unlimited disk space, unlimited transfers and unlimited sites hosted on each account as well.
One feature that caught our eye, is the fact they offer a “no downtime” transfer process, from your old host, to them. This basically means that they will show you in detail and offer the services needed, to have no site downtime during the transfer.
You also get a 90-day money-back guarantee, if for some reason you aren’t satisfied. Another little added bonus, you also receive a free Mozy online backup account, with each hosting purchase.
Reliability & Speed:
Since Web Hosting Hub is a newer hosting provider, there aren’t years of statistics regarding uptime to call up; however, since the company is composed of industry experts and there have been no reports of any significant downtime or outages, we’re confident in their uptime. Sites hosted on their servers load faster than average, and reliability is excellent so far, partially due to the fact that their network connections are industry leading OC-192.
Web Hosting Hub also utilizes a “load balanced” web hosting platform, which in short spreads out the work load to many different servers, not just one, in order to speed performance. Also, the fact that they share the same datacenters as their parent company InMotion Hosting, you can pretty much expect that they will have very similar award winning reliability and speed.
Reliability & Speed Factors:
|Server File Backups||Load-Balancing|
|24/7 Monitoring||Redundant Power|
|Summary: Utilizes same datacenters as InMotion hosting, which has an excellent track record for reliability and performance.|
Web Hosting Hub really excels in the customer service and support arena, due to its ease-of-use and availability.

As for customer friendliness, they are among the nicest bunch of support staff you will ever encounter and with over 150 employees, support staff are always on hand and quick to respond.
For the person who likes to figure things out on their own, there is also a wealth of video tutorials and technical guides available on the Web Hosting Hub homepage. We have found that often times just a quick search of these tutorials will answer most basic hosting questions typical customers might have.
