Who Is WPWebHost?
WPWebHost began their business in 2007, providing essential communication tools and IT solutions to meet the growing needs of individuals and businesses. The WPWebHost main feature is web hosting with pre-installed WordPress - the most popular content management system in the world, powering more than 31% of Internet websites nowadays. In my WPWebHost review, I'll examine the features provided, check the performance and highlight the pros and cons of this company.
If you have any questions, you've just found yourself in the right place. So, let's get started.
WPWebHost Review - Pricing and Plans
Due to the undeniable popularity of WordPress, it's hardly surprising that some web hosting providers decided to specialize in this CMS and offer something that's known as managed WordPress hosting.
Managed hosting means that you can leave all the technical aspects to the hosting provider. Security, speed, updates, backups, uptime - everything is in the hands of the host, in this instance - WPWebHost. You will get premium support from specialists who are extremely experienced in what they do.
Let's see what they can do for your website and how much it will cost:
WpWebHost currently offers 3 different packages varying in features which you get. With each plan, you'll get a fee SSL key, free .blog domain and Jetpack Professional plugin (I'll talk about it a little bit later in my WpWebHost review).
Packages vary in storage, the quantity of hosted websites, and the type of hosting that you'll get - shared, semi-shared or dedicated. WP Lite plan is great for blogging, WP Plus - for company websites and WP Geek ads eCommerce to the party.
Just keep in mind that the promoted prices are for one-year billing cycle. If you'll decide to go with monthly plans, the price will go UP:
In the table below you can see the prices when paying monthly and how much it would cost, in total, with the yearly billing cycle.
|WP Lite||WP Plus||Wp Geek|
On the other hand, you can just try their services for 30-days as WPWebHost has a money-back guarantee and if everything is alrighty then, just go with the yearly billing cycle. Sadly, I am almost 100% sure that 1 year will pass just in a blink of an eye. But enough with the existentialistic thoughts let's move on to the...

WPWebHost Review - Jetpack Tool
Due to being a WordPress web hosting provider, WPWehHost has some interesting tools and features for this CMS up their sleeve.
For instance - Jetpack, a WordPress plugin, applied to improve website security, design, and marketing. Its core features consist of site security and traffic tools. It's free since it is included in all hosting plans. Below you can find all the Jetpack marketing tool features for different plans in more detail:
With Jetpack included in any of your plans, you can choose from more than 200 Professional Themes for Your WordPress Website.
Other Jetpack design tools let you deliver video and image content at an impressive speed and integrate your site with official WordPress mobile apps.
Jetpack security tools will protect you from attacks, spam and monitor your downtime. As mentioned before, you'll get real-time backups, malware scanning, and an automated threat resolution.
WPWebHost Review - Performance
One of the most important factors, when someone browses your website (if not the most important), is how fast it loads. That's why I just had to test the response times. And just take a look at the result:
The result is superb! Moreover, the WPWebHost are pretty confident about their services in Australia:
That's really something to brag about because most of the web hosting providers can't offer decent response times from this region.
Flames to dust, lovers to friends, all good things come to an end. And that goes with my WPWebHost review. In the last part, I'll list my pros and cons for this web hosting provider. Let's begin with the topping of the cake (pros) and finish with cleaning the dishes (cons).
WPWebHost Review - Pros
Perfect for WordPress Hosting - lots of useful features and Jetpack tool makes WPWebHost a great hosting company for any kind of WordPress site. No matter if you are a blogger or need a website for your business or eCommerce - there's an option for any of these.
Free Essential Features - Free site transfer, free WordPress migration, free SSL, daily backups. Any of these features could be listed as a separate benefit, but there are just too much of them, so I had to put everything in one place.
Subpar Performance - A+ response times and SSD servers. Your webpage should load in a blink of an eye. And a really fast one.
Choice of Server Locations - if you want to reach the audience in Asia or Australia, just choose servers located in Singapore. And if you're more America based business, you know what to choose then, right?
WPWebHost Review Cons
Customer Support System - I'm still not a big fan of the ticket system. You just can't be sure when your problem will be solved. The forum is even worse, in my honest opinion.
It's Only For WordPress Websites - It depends if it's a pro or con. If you just don't want to be involved with the WordPress business it's just not for you. And the free website migration is also only from the WordPress-based sites.
WpWebHost Review– Should You Go For It?
Of course! If you need a web hosting provider that could manage your WordPress site WPWebHost should be one of the first options to look at and, possibly, try. There aren't many reasons not to! Speed is great and all the essential features are included without any upsells.
If you are still in doubt, just look at their response times again!
- Free SSL
- Free Domain Transfer
- Free Daily Backups
- Great Performance
- Ticket Support System
- Only For WordPress
