WebhostingPad VS Codero

WebhostingPad VS Codero

When you’re looking for web hosting, price and ease of service has a lot to do with your choice. But what if you have a more high-powered website with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month? You may be looking for a bit more out of a web host.

Disclosure: We are a professional review site that receives compensation from the companies whose products we review. We test each product thoroughly and give high marks to only the very best. We are independently owned and the opinions expressed here are our own.

That is why we’re taking a look at two very different types of web hosts here. WebhostingPad is a group formed in 2005 with a focus on bringing the highest class shared-server hosting to the masses for the most affordable price possible. In that time they have certainly succeeded and are now over 150,000 members strong.

Codero is a newer company formed in 2009 as an off-shoot of Aplus.net. Their focus was bringing dedicated and managed hosting services at a more affordable price to those who need that something ‘extra’ for their websites.

So which web host should you choose? We take a look at the features and benefits of each, and provide you with our recommendations below.

Pricing

WebhostingPad brings its customers the absolutely lowest price on the market with a single hosting plan starting at $1.99 per month with 4 years prepaid. However, even if you can afford only 12-months in advance it’s still only $3.95 per month.

Codero brings you dedicated and managed hosting rather than shared-server hosting. With “special” processor deals starting below $120 per month, they do have dedicated and managed hosting plans running from about $130 per month to $450 per month, depending on all the processing power, speed, memory, and support you require.

Products and Services

Both companies offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee for their product. In addition, WebhostingPad offers a 30-day money back guarantee as well.

Codero specializes in managed care including proactive service monitoring, security audits, troubleshooting, and OS and server patches. Codero also brings the “green” to their service with the purchase of 100% of their energy through alternative energy certificates.

The folks at WebhostingPad help to get websites off the ground with a free website builder with every account, and they add $200 in credits to use toward marketing with search engines and social media sites.

Web Hosting Features

The WebhostingPad plan gives a small business practically every hosting feature and support they need, including unlimited email, databases, hosted domains, monthly bandwidth, and disk space. They support multi-media files, and popular scripts. They also provide eCommerce shopping carts to customers to help them start selling online right away.

Codero gives businesses the choice of how much memory, bandwidth, and processing speed they want with the plan they pick. With dedicated hosting, businesses have the choice of installing their own software and scripts they need onto their server.

Customer Service

Both hosting companies specialize in 24/7/365 support via email and telephone. As well, both also provide customers with an online knowledgebase filled with articles and tutorials.

Recommendations

Making a single recommendation between these two very different type of hosts is not easy. The fact is that if your business requires heavy-duty care and maintenance with very heavy web traffic, Codero is definitely the choice to make. However, if you simply have a small non-interactive website with simple eCommerce, our recommendation goes to WebhostingPad for a simple plan filled with features.
