WebHostingHub Homepage

Many readers are unfamiliar with the newcomer in my hosting review list – WebHostingHub, I hope this FAQ post will help.

1. WebHostingHub who?

WebHostingHub has been around for some time. The brand name ‘WebHostingHub’  was established back in year 2005 and it’s under the same management team with InMotion Hosting, which has more than a decade of industry experience.

Some of you might never heard of the name but WebHostingHub is extremely popular; it’s ranked top 3 on at least half of the popular hosting review charts at this time of writing.

 2. What type of hosting service does WebHostingHub offer?

WebHostingHub offers only shared hosting services. Its (only) hosting plan covers pretty much everything you need for a new website: unlimited addon domains, unlimited emails, unlimited disk space and bandwidth, 24/7 toll-free and live chat support, and a very good script installer (Fantastico – this covers most popular blogging and e-commerce tools like WordPress, Joomla, Cube Cart, OS Commerce, etc).

3. Which control panel is WebHostingHub users using?

cPanel.

4. How much bandwidth and disk storage space do I get from WebHostingHub?

As mentioned, unlimited.

(But, you do know what is the real meaning of unlimited hosting, right? ;) )

5. If I signup now, how soon will my website be online with WebHostingHub?

Generally a website (or new domain) takes about 24 hours to be fully online – it takes time for the DNS propagation to be fully complete. However you can start (almost) instantly with WebHostingHub – what WebHostingHub will do is to create a temporary URL for the new website (hence you can start working on the configuration, installation, and uploading).

6. Does WebHostingHub offer a free domain?
