Web Hosting World Not Worth the Money: Disappointing Experience with Web Hosting World

So... I'm here to give ya'll the scoop on Web Hosting World (webhostingworld.net). I gotta say, my experience with them wasn't exactly great.

Back in April of 2012, I decided to give them a shot and bought a Bronze Plan webhosting and domain for $27.00 USD through PayPal. Seemed like a good deal at the time. But when I went to publish my website, I couldn't do it because my domain name still hadn't registered. So, I shot off an email to their support team at ***@webhostingworld.net to see what was up.

I finally got a reply from Branda Taylor in their Technical Support Department, saying that my domain was still in processing and to contact them again if I needed more info. Okay, fair enough. But then... nothing. I waited and waited, but my domain name was still unregistered and no one was getting back to me.

I tried emailing them again, but still no luck. And here we are in February of 2013, and I never did hear back from them.

All in all, I gotta say I'm pretty disappointed with my experience with Web Hosting World. I mean, is it a scam? Who knows. But the fact that they took my money and then couldn't follow through on delivering the service I paid for... well, that doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

So yeah, I wouldn't recommend them. Save yourself the hassle and find a different webhosting provider.

Web Hosting World Web Hosting World Review: False "Unlimited" Advertising and Poor Customer Service

Just like Andrew C, I'm going through a similar ordeal with Web Hosting World. My account was shut down for supposedly going over the 30% usage limit, and they demanded a whopping $84 payment from me within twenty-four hours. I've been a loyal customer of theirs for years, yet they didn't even have the decency to notify me about the situation before closing down my account. As a result, my website went offline, and I wasn't even being informed about it.

What's worse is that Web Hosting World advertises unlimited disk space and bandwidth on their website. So, why are they restricting CPU usage? It's a terrible way to treat customers, and they should know better. It's evident that they care more about money than customer satisfaction.

Furthermore, they apparently force customers to upgrade from Bronze to Gold plans if they exceed the usage limit, effectively rendering the Silver plan useless. If this is the case, then why even offer the Silver package in the first place?

Overall, I'm extremely disappointed with Web Hosting World's behavior, and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. Their seemingly unlimited packages seem attractive initially, but their hidden limitations and unfriendly customer service make it not worth it. It's a real shame, given the numerous years I've been with them.

Web Hosting World Web Hosting World Review: Downgraded Plan and Terrible Customer Service

I was looking for a good web hosting company to host my website when I stumbled upon Web Hosting World. I decided to sign up for a three-year plan, which promised unlimited storage space and bandwidth. However, after just a year, I found that my plan had been downgraded to just ten GB of storage space without any prior notice.

When I reached out to their technical support team for help, I was met with a rude and unhelpful response from someone named Donna. She told me that my plan had indeed been changed and threatened to close my account if I didn't stop contacting them for help.

I was shocked and disappointed by her dismissive attitude towards me, especially as a paying customer who had invested a lot of money into their services. When I tried to escalate the issue to their technical support manager, I was met with more resistance and a complete lack of compassion for my situation.

I felt like they were trying to steal my money and shut down my website without any regard for my business or personal needs. It was a terrible experience, and I would not recommend using Web Hosting World to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy web hosting provider.

However, I will say that the ability to leave online reviews like this one is a great way to share our opinions and experiences with others. Even though I had a negative experience with Web Hosting World, I am grateful for platforms like this that allow us to speak our minds and make our voices heard.

Web Hosting World Avoid Web Hosting World - Terrible Service and Subpar Servers

I recently had an experience with Web Hosting World, and let me tell you, it was not a good one. This so-called company is really just one guy running a cheap operation with subpar servers.

Now, they do promise a 30-day money-back guarantee, but I wouldn't trust that for a second. When I signed up, the server was painfully slow, and it wasn't just a connection issue. To be honest, I think they're using Pentium 1 computers or something.

And the worst part? After just two days, they switched my server, but the speed issue persisted. And don't even get me started on their scripts - out of almost 180 options, I could only get three or four to work properly.

To make matters worse, I registered a domain on September 2nd and it still wasn't processed two days later. When I tried to cancel my account and get a refund, they suddenly registered the domain and ignored my cancellation requests.

I even tried to get help from PayPal, but they wouldn't return my money. Take a look at the screenshot of my conversation with them before they terminated my account.

Overall, I would definitely not recommend Web Hosting World. Save yourself the trouble and find a more reliable hosting provider.

Web Hosting World Unfair Upgrade Policy Alert: My Experience with Webhostingworld.net

I have been using webhostingworld.net for a few years now, and I was pretty content with their service. For only a buck a month, I had a "bronze" plan, which did exactly what I needed. I used it mainly for uploading some data to my website. However, something happened recently. On a regular audit, they found out that I was using more than 30% of their CPU.

Before I could even react, they sent me a message saying that they would put me on their "gold" plan. And that plan would cost me a whopping $84! And worse still, they would implement the change within 24h. If I didn't pay, they threatened to shut down my website and my e-mail server. I was in a fix because I couldn't afford to lose all the data I had carefully uploaded over the years. But I also refused to pay their outrageous fee.

I tried to transfer my website, but that couldn't be done within 24h. So, regrettably, I had to let my account with webhostingworld.net go. I believe that their actions were not proper business conduct. If you're running a company, you can't just upgrade your clients' accounts without giving them notice.

Here's what they said to me, and I quote: "During a routine audit we checked that your account "[website name]" is using more than 30% CPU usage on the server, unfortunately we will not be able to continue you on bronze plan.

"We have upgraded your invoice to gold, if you wish to continue with us you need to pay the invoice. You can log in to your client area to view and pay the invoice at... However, if you do not wish to continue, you are requested to move your accounts until the 28th of July since on 28th of July if the invoice is unpaid we will proceed with suspending and removing your accounts and no longer offer further service."

I wouldn't recommend webhostingworld.net to anyone, given my experience.

Web Hosting World Web Hosting World Review: Unreliable, Deceptive, and Expensive. Avoid at All Costs

This company, Web Hosting World, is not a good choice for your website hosting needs. At first, things seemed alright, but as time went on, they began making changes that were not beneficial for their clients. They started raising prices and changing plans, which made it difficult for users to keep up. And if you want to cancel your service, you must do it 15 days in advance, or they will generate an invoice with additional charges.

Furthermore, if you ask for early cancellation, they will terminate your service without reaching the end date, and permanently delete your account. If you want to reactivate it later, you have to pay $25. This is not reasonable since users pay for their service and have the right to terminate it at any time. It is unacceptable and deceiving to delete someone's account without permission.

The worst part is that their server is unreliable, and it fails more than their technical service. Many issues arise when the server stops working, which results in a blank page with errors. It is frustrating and problematic for website owners since their website's uptime is critical. They are not trustworthy and deceive clients by offering cheap hosting services that are of poor quality.

Therefore, I recommend that you invest more money and buy something of higher quality. Do not waste your time, money, and sanity with them. I am speaking from experience — they are thieves and scammers taking advantage of customers who aren't aware of their subpar services. It is better to choose a reputable company that values your business rather than falling into this dishonest trap.

Web Hosting World WebHostingWorld Review: Affordable but Rough Around the Edges

Been with WebHostingWorld for 5 long years now and have experienced a lot of ups and downs with them. When I initially signed up for their services, I was looking for an affordable hosting option and that's what I found with whw. However, my start with them was a bit rough. I faced a few issues with them, which they took a long time to resolve. They couldn't get my site up and also failed to register my domain correctly, which caused me a lot of headaches.

To mitigate these issues, I decided to file a complaint with Paypal and tried to get my money back. Despite being a long-term customer, they reacted in a rude and harsh manner when I filed the complaint. They told me that if I didn't close the dispute, I would end up losing my money and hosting. They also informed me that Paypal would not give refunds on virtual goods.

Feeling like I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, I decided to stick it out with whw and see what happened. The host later set up my hosting and domain. However, after 6 months, I faced another setback. They lost all my valuable data without having a backup, which caused me a lot of anguish and stress.

Due to these experiences, I started to back up my website data, ensuring that I'll never have to go through such difficulties again. Their customer support is relatively quick but only if you approach them with politeness. While I must say, if you get upset and express your feelings, they don't tend to be very helpful, ha!

I currently have multiple accounts with whw, thanks to their dirt-cheap pricing and their ability to provide me with all the necessary hosting requirements. However, I wish they were more professional and friendly.

I cannot emphasize enough that whw is not a company you should depend too much on - it's always important to have backup options so that you are not caught unaware if things go sideways. Interestingly, I also noted a few payment irregularities with them. For instance, when I pay in advance to get an additional 3 months, they never set it up correctly, which means that I always have to inform them anytime I make a payment so that I can claim my extra months. However, they always adjust my payment without any hassle.

Overall, WebHostingWorld is a bit rough around the edges, but it's a functioning web host that works for me, and I'm a happy customer.

Web Hosting World Webhostingworld.net: A Penny-Pinching Provider with Non-Existent Support

Cheap web hosting is unbelievable! Get this, I decided to give webhostingworld.net a try less than a week ago. My website is my business lifeline, and taking a chance with a new hosting provider is like rolling the dice, but I figured their prices seemed reasonable enough. Boy, was I wrong!

My first mistake was transferring my website to them. Everything immediately stopped working, including my email. That entire week, I lost clients, and my reputation took a hit. I'm pretty open about my business dealings with my clients, and when I told them who I transferred my website to, it didn't sit well with them. They trust me to keep their information secure and provide quality work, so I needed to rectify the situation quickly.

In an attempt to get some help, I opened a ticket. That's where I realized their 30-day money-back guarantee is a complete and utter sham. It was like trying to communicate with a brick wall. I did not receive a reply or even an acknowledgment of my ticket. While waiting for their response, I felt like Tom Hanks shouting for help to his friend Wilson in Castaway. My advice to anyone looking for web hosting is to not waste your time and money on these penny-pinching providers. When I called for help, no one answered.

It's clear to me that webhostingworld.net is only interested in making a quick and easy profit. They lure customers in with their low prices and packed promises, but their services are mediocre, and their support is non-existent. By the time most customers realize this, it's too late, and their hard-earned cash is gone. Trust me; there are better web hosting providers out there who are far more deserving of your time and money.

Finally, for the record, I did give them more than 48 hours to propagate my website on their so-called "server." And yes, I was very patient with their excuses, but it was all for naught.

Web Hosting World Beware of Using Web Hosting World dot net: A Business Owner's Nightmare

I recently subscribed to Web Hosting World dot net (sorry, can't include links for my first five posts due to Scam Rules) and I have to say, things started off great. The functionality offered was just what I needed to manage my 24 hour web store. However, as my needs grew, I found that the company stopped performing certain duties, such as forwarding me a copy of the chat transcripts to my email. Instead, I received their biased overview and had to take a print screen to save a copy. But that was just the beginning of my issues.

The database stopped working and I was initially told that they are updating it. But, it kept happening while I was trying to work on the website. Then, someone changed the name of my database from wbandt to bbandt. I even have a screenshot of it to prove it. As if that wasn't enough, they disabled my options to send emails and I received an error stating that they do not authorize use of my email account to send bulk mail. But, I am a business and businesses send bulk mail, right? To top it off, when I spoke to the customer service agent, he called my mail SPAM. WTF, right? He only allowed me to send mail from my cellular device or iPad.

To make matters worse, I wasn't allowed in my cpanel. They kept changing my password and giving me only three minutes to access it. When I tried to delete files, I received a message stating that I exceeded the login time and now they will not allow me to delete files. This is a serious issue because the content of our files are private and sensitive. They disabled the function to delete files from the database in cpanel and access to certain scripts. These issues are a security breach and should not be taken lightly.

When I asked why my database and other issues were happening, I received no answer. They simply said they will send a ticket to the next level, much like Comcast does (but that is another story). Since using their hosting company, I have lost the privilege to post ads on my site as other companies are saying that I no longer have the traffic. But other analytics that point to my site say that I get at least 90 clicks per day. Web Hosting World dot net says that my site has zero visitors. I am now waiting for them to allow access, but I have decided to delete the databases altogether. For some odd reason, I believe that they have hidden files somewhere.

In conclusion, this company is a death sentence to businesses that rely on their website for branding. They may be cheap, but the loss you will take by using them will be greater. They have caused so many issues, I don't even know where to begin. So, be cautious and do your research before using Web Hosting World dot net.

Web Hosting World WHW Hosting Review: Budget-Friendly Option But Don't Expect Quality Customer Service and Uptime

Been with Webhostingworld.net for 2 years and it was a great start as my website was hosted on a good server with almost 100% uptime. However, I noticed that it went downhill after the first year as the uptime dropped to only 75%. I believed they moved my site to a less efficient server. Moreover, their customer service became very poor as they would just share a link on the chat instead of resolving the issue. I am now using another hosting company that costs a bit more, but at least I am getting what I paid for. I referred this hosting company to others, but they either received a refund before the 30 days or, if they missed it, they moved to another hosting company. WHW is a budget-friendly option for setting up your website, but do not expect quality customer service and uptime.

Now, I am building a website for a customer and I came back to WHW due to their inexpensive hosting plans. However, after 3 years, my experience has been worse. It has been three days since I signed up, but the site is still not activated. The temporary URL is not working either. Every time, I am being told that my site will be up in a few hours, but it is clearly taking longer. They claim to offer "Free Setup and Instant Activation", but it seems like "instant" means 3 days in their language. On the second day, I asked about getting a refund, but they kept assuring me that my site would be up in a few hours. And now, on day 4, I am still being told to wait for a few hours.

I recommend choosing WHW's $1/month deal if and only if you are setting up and designing a site. It is appealing to the wallet, but you are getting what you pay for. The claims on the homepage are no longer true. Their customer service is available 24/7, but it is HORRIBLE. Don't waste your time chatting with them, just open a support ticket as you might get a reply sooner. Also, I believe the recent reviews about how great the service is were written by the staff or the owners. If you want to test the good reviews, try using it. They may offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, but I suggest paying through Paypal as they could help you get your money back.

In conclusion, WHW was a frustration, and their customer service and uptime are not worth the money. If you want quality hosting, you will need to pay a bit more.

Web Hosting World Beware of Web Hosting World: A Wild Ride with Bumps and Snags

I gotta say, I signed up for the Linux Reseller Account over at Web Hosting World (webhostingworld.net), and let me tell you, it's been a bit of a wild ride. I mean, I don't wanna sound too negative, but there have been some definite bumps and snags along the way.

For example, when I requested a refund, they totally ghosted me. I'm talking radio silence, crickets, nada. And let me tell you, that really yanked their service level down from a solid 5 stars all the way down to a big fat goose egg. But that's not all-- they even went ahead and deleted my product! Can you believe that? Talk about shady.

All in all, the whole experience left a sour taste in my mouth. I mean, I kept creating tickets until I was blue in the face, and still nothing. No money back, no re-activated product, nothing. It's like it just vanished into thin air. And let me tell you, that's not a great feeling.

So, yeah. I'd say beware of Web Hosting World. If you're thinking about signing up, just be sure to keep your expectations low and maybe have a backup plan in case things go south. 'Cause trust me, they just might.

Web Hosting World Warning: Stay Far Away from Web Hosting World - Terrible Customer Service and Account Access Issues

!

I used to have a bunch of accounts with Web Hosting World. At first, I thought their prices were really good, but looking back, I think I should have been more cautious. See, one day, they just up and shut down my access to the customer area and the control panel of a whole bunch of my accounts. I was totally caught off guard, and I didn't know what was going on. So, I contacted support, and they told me not to worry, that they would fix the problem. But, they didn't. To this day, I still don't have access to some of my accounts, which has caused me to lose a whole bunch of customers. I wouldn't recommend using Web Hosting World, because it's a huge pain in the butt. They don't care about their customers, and they're just looking to make a quick buck. If I were you, I'd stay far, far away from them.

Web Hosting World Web Hosting World Review: Poor Customer Support, Weak Security, and Super Slow Sites

I gotta say, my experience with Web Hosting World was not a great one. You see, when I first bought one of their packages, I thought everything would be smooth sailing. But boy, was I wrong!
One of the major issues I had was with their customer support. You see, when I first reached out to them during the refund period, they were super helpful. But after that, things went downhill pretty quickly. Every time I needed help, they asked for money. And trust me, it's not like they were offering expert-level support or anything.
Another thing that really got on my nerves was the lack of security expertise. Now, I'm no expert myself, but I know enough to recognize when things aren't right. And let me tell you, things were really not right with my site. It was down for over three months, which is just crazy. And to top it off, hackers were attacking my customers' sites, which is a whole other can of worms.
Finally, let me just say that the speed of the sites was painfully slow. I mean, we're talking tortoise levels of slowness. It was honestly unbearable.
So, to sum it up, I would not recommend purchasing anything from Web Hosting World. Don't make the same mistake I did and waste your hard-earned money on their services. Oh, and in case you're curious, I had the RESELLER SUPREME package.

Web Hosting World Web Hosting World: A Total Scam - Avoid at All Costs

I gotta say, I was pretty disappointed with Web Hosting World. They straight up scammed me. I lost all my data and they wouldn't even try to help me out. They claimed they lost all their backups or something like that. What kind of service is that? And then they wouldn't even refund my money. Total rip off.

Honestly, I would advise against using Web Hosting World. Like, seriously, stay away from these guys. They have awful service and the people who work there are so rude. I mean, come on, if you're going to run a business, at least try to be nice to your customers.

So yeah, definitely a big thumbs down from me. Don't waste your time or your money with these scammers. You're better off going with someone else. Trust me.

Web Hosting World Avoid WebHostingWorld.net - Unreliable and Poor Customer Service

WebHostingWorld.net is just awful. It's like they don't even care if your site is up or down. They go switching servers all the time and then next thing you know, your site is kaput. I mean, it's not like you can afford to lose business or anything, right? And don't even get me started on the whole database disconnection thing. That's a mess in itself.

And let me tell you, they're pretty strict about payment. I once got disconnected because I hadn't paid yet, even though the due date hadn't even started yet. Like, seriously? How does that even make sense? It's just so aggravating and disgusting.

Honestly, do yourself a favor and don't even waste your time or money with WebHostingWorld.net. Save yourself the headache and find a better host.

Web Hosting World Beware: Unreliable Web Hosting World Failed to Keep Their Word

Me and Web Hosting World have been in partnership since last year. Honestly, their gang is not so useful, sometimes they may seem a little bit too harsh and full of themselves. When I paid what I owed them they forgot to update my domain name, leaving me quite stranded for a whopping 3 months. I approached them to ask for some form of compensation and they replied in an almost nonchalant manner that doesn't shout 'customer care' or helpfulness of any kind. Worse still, their guarantee to refund any of your money once you feel their services are not worth it is nothing but hogwash.

Sadly, this forced me to open a Paypal case before I could get my money back. If you're looking for a word of advice and warning regarding these guys- take it from me, don't even consider using their services. Just keep it moving till you get to a more reliable provider.

Web Hosting World Unreliable and Irresponsible: My Experience with Web Hosting World

I recently had an experience with Web Hosting World (webhostingworld.net) that left me feeling quite frustrated and disappointed. It seems that there is a pattern emerging with this hosting provider, as I have heard from others who have faced similar issues with their domains and files disappearing without explanation.

In the case of my client, their entire domain was erased, including all of their html and php files, email accounts, and ftp accounts. While the hosting provider was able to restore the email and ftp accounts relatively quickly, the files were lost forever. When I asked for an explanation as to how and why this happened, I was met with defensiveness and no clear answers.

What's worse is that it appears that the hosting provider has no access to the basic server logs that would help us understand who or how the failure occurred. This is essential information that any responsible hosting provider should have and be able to share with their clients, yet it seems that Web Hosting World either does not have this information or is unwilling to share it.

Overall, I found the lack of care and responsibility on the part of Web Hosting World to be quite alarming. As a provider of services to clients, they have a duty to provide reliable and secure hosting that gives peace of mind to those who entrust their websites and files to them. Unfortunately, it seems that this is not the case with Web Hosting World. If you are looking for a hosting provider that will give you peace of mind and good service, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

Web Hosting World Disappointing Service: WHW Fails to Deliver Quality Web Hosting and Customer Support

I've been a customer of WHW for three years now and I must say that the past six months have shown that the quality of their services has deteriorated greatly. I've experienced consistent downtime, faced several issues, and dealt with unprofessionalism from their staff. Their servers are always out of date, making it quite insecure for clients like me. The speed and platform responsiveness are terrible, and this has affected my website's performance and ability to retain traffic. Most disheartening is the quality of their customer support. It is among the worst I have ever encountered as it takes them a considerable amount of time to handle issues and sometimes, they don't even address the problems adequately. One of my experiences with them is when I wanted Prestashop installed, it took them three long days to get it up and running, only to discover that the site had insufficient resources to customize and set it up. I have an extensive pile of support tickets, and it is evident that they are in breach of their Service Level Agreement. Still, they do not feel motivated to take action and rectify these issues. I do not recommend WHW as a web hosting company because, in my experience, they have only brought disappointment, frustration, and ripped me off.

Web Hosting World Web Hosting World Review: False Advertising and Poor Customer Service

My experience with Web Hosting World has been terrible, to say the least. I was initially attracted to their Bronze Plan, which boasted unlimited space at a very reasonable price. Excited about the offer, I paid for 3 years in advance and continued using their services for 10 months.

However, suddenly my hosting space became full and I was unable to understand what was happening. When I contacted their representative Stephanie, she informed me that the plan had changed and that they were no longer offering unlimited space. I was taken aback by this sudden change, and I demanded a refund or at least a prior notice regarding changing terms.

But to my dismay, she said that there would be no refund or warning, and that I would have to upgrade to a higher plan if I needed more space. I was angry and frustrated as I had already paid for 3 years in advance and felt cheated by their false advertising.

In my opinion, this kind of service and attitude towards customers is unacceptable. They seem to care only about taking money from customers and do not provide the promised service.

Web Hosting World Shady Affiliate Program & Mediocre Hosting - A Review of Web Hosting World

So, let's talk about Web Hosting World. At first, I gotta say, their affiliate program seemed pretty cool. They advertised that they'd pay out once earnings reach $50, which seemed fair enough to me. So, I started promoting them on my website and just patiently waited for my earnings to pile up.

But then, things started to seem a bit fishy. When I finally hit that $50 mark and went to send in a payment request, I was surprised to see that my affiliate balance had magically decreased down to $30. I was like, "What the heck, dudes? Where did my money go?" And just to add insult to injury, they sent me an email saying that my balance hadn't even reached the payment threshold yet.

This happened not once, not twice, but multiple times whenever my earnings reached the $50 mark. At this point, I was pretty fed up with their shady practices. It didn't help that when my account *finallyhad $78 in it, they demanded that I provide a list of clients who had registered through my affiliate link in order to receive payment. Like, how am I supposed to do that? They don't even display clients, except for the last 4 ones. It's like they were intentionally making it impossible for me to receive my earnings.

In addition to their sketchy affiliate program, their hosting service isn't anything to write home about. Their prices are relatively high, but the service you get doesn't quite match up. I'd recommend staying away from these guys if you're looking for a reliable web hosting service. Save yourself the headache and go with someone else.
