WebHostingPad vs. AwardSpace

WebHostingPad vs. AwardSpace

Very few web hosting companies can state that they host 1 million web sites. If a company can reach a few thousand customers they are doing just fine. While some hosting companies can tout hundreds of thousands of customers, there are still an elite few who have 1 million or more websites on the books. AwardSpace.com has just that. They surpassed the 1 million hosted websites even though they have been in business less than 8 years.

WebHostingPad is also a newer company formed in 2005. However, in those few short years they have risen to the top of the industry with their favorable hosting plan. They have won numerous awards that set them apart from the competition.

So if you’re looking for web hosting, how do you choose between these outstanding companies? Read our review and recommendation below to help you with your decision.

Pricing

WebHostingPad offers a single plan for as little as just $1.99 per month (with 5 years prepaid). For a 12-month plan their cost is still only $3.95 per month.

AwardSpace has a variety of choices in their shared-hosting plans. For very limited features, and most likely a great deal of advertising banners included, you can get a hosting plan for absolutely free. This may be a great choice for personal websites or bloggers.

Their other plans are the Basic plan for $3.49/mo, the Web Pro plan for $5.45/mo, and the Max Pack Plus plan for $6.99/mo.

Products and Services

Both companies offer a free domain registration for new clients, a free site builder, and a free script installer to help install all those great software programs that make a website sparkle. Both companies also offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee and a 30 day money back guarantee.

WebHostingPad offers professional web design as an extra service.

AwardSpace provides professional SEO and SMO services for their clients, as well as a helpful keyword target identification package. And if a client ever grows out of a shared hosting plan, they have VPS plans at the ready.

Web Hosting Features

For the price, you just can’t beat WebHostingPad’s features. They offer unlimited disk space, bandwidth, email accounts, hosted domains, and MySQL databases. They have plenty of support for multi-media, scripts, 3rd party software, and provide a free shopping cart ready for e-commerce.

The AwardSpace plans are incremental in features, but even the Basic plan has generous amounts of bandwidth and space. AwardSpace provides a choice of free shopping cart software options, scripting and software support, and even options to utilize ASP.NET with all paid plans.

Customer Service

Both companies offer an outstanding data center with a solid uptime guarantee. However, if customers do need support, both companies offer options. AwardSpace only offers their customers to submit a support ticket through their control panel. WebHostingPad, however, offers that as well as live 24 hour support via telephone, chat, and even Skype.

WebHostingPad offers a very helpful online self-help center filled with FAQs, articles, and video tutorials. AwardSpace has a FAQ section and a community forum.

Recommendations

When it comes to features and technical setup, both companies are exceptional. However, customer service is where you see the difference. For the outstanding customer service options and the best-priced plans in the industry, WebHostingPad gets our recommendation.
