Web Hosting Hub started offering more options in early 2014 and re-packaged their previous “All-In-One Hosting Plan” into three different packages, namely Spark, Nirto, and Dynamo.
Personally I found that WebHostingHub’s Spark package is one the best shared hosting services for starters/newbies. But before we dig into the details, let’s take a look on the basic features and prices of all three packages.
Like many other budget hosting companies, you can see that the features at the WHH are more or less the same – where you get to host unlimited websites with unlimited disk storage, unlimited data transfers, unlimited webmail, FTP accounts, MySQL databases, and one-click installation on most popular CMS at a very affordable price.
These features are okay for a below-$5/mo host and sufficient for newbies.
But they are all the same.
WebHostingHub, iPage, JustHost, FatCow, Host Metro, PowWeb, BlueHost, HostMonster – the hosting features by all these well known brands are just the same. It makes no sense to compare their hosting features.
What most casual shoppers do not know, is that a lot of (and I mean, really a lot!) well known web hosting providers are now owned and managed by a giant business group named Endurance International Group (EIG). Matt Heaton doesn’t own Bluehost and Hostmonster anymore these days; the companies now belong to EIG. So are JustHost, iPage, FatCow, PowWeb, StartLogic, EasyCGI, VPS Link, SuperGreen, and Hostgator. All these companies were sold to EIG in the past.
Personally, I am fine with this scenario – acquisition is one of the most common ways to growth in modern business nowadays. However, many webmasters I knew do not like how hosting industry is being monopolized by large cooperation. And for this reason, this makes our subject of review, WebHostingHub, a special one. The Hub is NOT owned nor managed by the big International cooperation.
