Web Hosting Hub aims to provide affordable shared hosting to small businesses.
Founded in 2010, they’re owned by the conglomerate InMotion Hosting. Web Hosting Hub is headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA, and they have two U.S. data centers – one on each coast.
Web Hosting Hub boasts incredibly fast speeds due to their state of the art technology at an affordable cost.
Does the data live up to the hype?
Let’s take a look at where they perform admirably.
1. 22% Faster Page Load Times than the Competition
Web Hosting Hub prides themselves on speed, referencing (many times) the fact that their solid-state hard drives can be up to 20x faster.
(Did we mention they have solid-state hard drives?)
While our experience didn’t show 20x faster, their page loading times were about 21.7% faster than the competition (716ms vs. 890ms).
Not quite the fastest, but still very good considering that even a one-second delay can cause a 7% decrease in site conversions.
2. ~7/10 Support
Good uptime is critical, and Web Hosting Hub delivered. Fast page loads are equally important because site visitors will leave in droves if your site takes longer than a few seconds to load.
But customer support can be a deal killer if issues aren’t addressed or fixed quickly.
3. EXTREMELY Easy Website/Blog Setup
Web Hosting Hub features a simplified, quick signup process that might be the best we’ve seen after reviewing almost 30 other web hosts.
4. Free Domain Name & Site Migration
Do you have a website hosted somewhere else?
No problem! Web Hosting Hub will transfer up to three websites and databases for you (assuming they don’t exceed 5 gigs). Another added bonus includes their ‘zero downtime’ promise during this process.
5. 90-Days Money Back Guarantee
You can always tell which companies stand behind their service by looking at their refund policies.
Web Hosting Hub is a big believer, offering a full 90-day money back guarantee (one of the few offers with an extended term).
6. They’re Environmentally Friendly
While I wasn’t able to find any certifications for Web Hosting Hub from the EPA that prove that it’s a green web host, they do have several eco-friendly policies.
Since 2010, the company has claimed to make efforts to reduce waste, recycle as often as possible, and use fewer paper products.
7. Just Above Industry-Standard Uptime
Our eight-month testing process revealed that Web Hosting Hub has an average uptime of around 99.95%, .01 faster than the industry average (99.94%).
That’s pretty decent!
Although they’ve struggled since almost the beginning to deliver good uptime consistently. Some months are great, while others struggling for stability. Kinda a mixed bag to be honest.
