SiteCloud VS WebhostingPad

SiteCloud VS WebhostingPad

When it comes to web hosting service, price is a big consideration for most website owners. They want a great hosting plan that is fast and reliable and loaded with features, but they need a price they can afford.

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.

Both SiteCloud and WebhostingPad offer a very affordable hosting plan. SiteCloud brings their brand of cloud server technology to their clients for speed and reliability. WebhostingPad focuses on quality name-brand equipment and service to bring reliability to their clients backed with the support they need.

So which one of these very affordable web hosts is the right choice for you? While either choice is a good one, we take a closer look at the features, services, pricing, and support below and bring you our recommendation.

Pricing

The WebhostingPad plan is one of the cheapest on the market at just $1.99 per month with a 5-year purchase. Even their one-year plan is an affordable $4.95 per month.

SiteCloud offers affordable cloud server hosting at just $4.95 per month.

Products and Services

Sure, everyone wants affordable web hosting. But what else do you get? With SiteCloud clients also get a free website building tool, a free domain registration for life, free marketing credits, and the use of cPanel control panel, the best control panel software in the industry. SiteCloud also brings a ‘green’ aspect to their client base with a 100% carbon neutral policy which makes them eco-friendly. Their plan is backed with a 99.9% uptime guarantee and a 30 day money back guarantee.

WebhostingPad brings over $200 in value with free marketing credits with Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, and myads. They also provide professional web design services for their clients, as well as providing cPanel control panel for account control. And they also back their plan with a 30 day money back guarantee and a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

Web Hosting Features

Both plans from these hosting companies offer unlimited disk space, monthly bandwidth, hosted domains, email accounts, and MySQL databases. Both offer free third party script plugins, and support for all the popular scripting languages like PHP, Perl, and Python.

WebhostingPad also offers support for multimedia files like Streaming audio/video, Shockwave, and Flash. And they also provide free eCommerce solutions.

Customer Service

Both SiteCloud and WebhostingPad want to bring the best support to their clients. Compared to other top rated hosts these two leave customers desiring a little more. SiteCloud offers 24 hour support through online chat only, plus limited hours for phone support. WebhostingPad brings true 24 hour live support via phone, chat, and online ticket submission.

Both have an online knowledgebase, but is not as extensive as we would like to see. While both have a sufficient number of helpful articles, there are no video tutorials, user guides, or additional bulletin board support features.

Recommendations

Both of these quality hosts offer a similar product with their hosting plans. However, SiteCloud brings pretty much the same thing as WebhostingPad, plus they offer the new and in-demand cloud server technology to their clients for the same price. Our recommendation goes to SiteCloud.
