So far, so good.

I'm new to website design and trying to decide who to use to host my website was very confusing. There are SO many to choose from. Anyway, I did some research and found webhostingreviews.com was the most informative web hosting review site I could find. I had a list of a few web hosts and started reading the reviews. I picked Webzpro simply because, all things being equal, they took the time to respond to the one poor review I saw. I think that shows that the really care about their reputation. Anyway, I wouldn't know a good web host from a bad web host as I have no experience using anyone else. But , so far I haven't had one problem. I link the user CP as well. Even a novice like me can understand it.

WebzPro does what I need

My experience with WebzPro has been nothing but great. I needed a reliable and affordable hosting service to help with my profile site. After researching various options, it became obvious to me WebzPro was what I needed. Their system is easy to use and for a non-technical type, that is very important (ok, I know enough to be dangerous, but they make it very easy).

I would and have been recommending WebzPro to anyone who wants to listen. I will not hesitate to continue to do so in the future. They have a plan type that should suit any budget and knowledge level.

Good service and good price is a good thing.

Biggest Pro: Easy-to-use admin interface

WebzPro, Steady and Reliable.

For various reasons, I have 2 shared hosting accounts with one of those being with WebZ. Based on my experiences with them, they have always practiced what they preach. They are not one of the "big names" out there like GoDaddy, Hostgator, or one of the other well known hosts, but if you are looking for good, relaible hosting, I would defenitely give them a look, or take a shot using their money back trial period. I have dealt with Mike Budney, who I believe is the owner, and both him and the rest of the staff have always made me feel like they care about their customers, and would do whatever is necessary to solve any problems. When it comes to pricing, I'll say that their pricing is competitive and fair, not the cheapest, and not the most expensive. For those who have no experience with webhosting, I have some advice that you should consider, save somewhere within the cells of your brain, and never, never, never do. That is, "NEVER CHOOSE A HOSTING COMPANY BASED ON PRICE". As a matter of fact, price should be about #8 on your 1 to 10 list for choosing a hosting company. All of the good, reputable, reliable hosting companies out there are all within a range of about .25 to .75 of each other on a monthly basis, so again, price should not play a big part in choosing a webhosting company. While your at it, if a company will not let you in on a month to month basis, or a quarterly basis, run as fast as you can in another direction. I don't want to go on a long rant about pricing, but I thought that what I have just written is important no matter what host you choose. If you go with WebZ, one of the things you will need to be comfortable with is support by -email. I have always found their support to be adequate, though with e-mail support, sometimes you need to go back and forth a few times to get all your questions answered. Again, their support is good in the form that they provide it, but nothing beats talking to a knowledgeable tech ear to ear. I have never had a problem with reliabilty, and their billing department is right on top of things. All in all, I would recommend Webz to anyone who is looking for reliable, fairly priced, and well supported hosting. Like I said previously, they are not the "biggest" out there, but in this case, I think that is actually one of the things that makes them successful.

Biggest Pro: Reliable, honest company, good people to deal with.
Biggest Con: Lack of phone support.

Great initial impression from these guys.

Around 2/1/2009 I was in the market for a new hosting company so that i could shut down a site I had with yahoo for a few years. Yahoo still does not allow more than one site per account and after about 4 years I was paying about 12 bucks a month. Like everybody else, I read reviews until my eyes felt like popping out, and worst yet, tries to figure out what "review" sites were just paid adviretisements, and what sites were actually objective reviews from 3rd party reviewers. I came across this site and found it to be one of the most reputable, or as far as I could tell, the most trustworthy review site out there. I signed up with one of their top-rated hosts who promised "quick activation" and that turned out to be a 24 hour email exchange going back and forth over a simple sign-up for one of their "starter" packages. Maybe they were having a bad day, but i figured if signing up turned out to be such a hassle, I better pass on that host. Again, using this site as a reference, I called Webzpro and talked to a fellow who I believe was one of their owners and was impressed with his willingness to spend time on the phone answering questions without trying to 'sell me". Based on his info, I decided to take a shot and sign up. The process went as smooth as can be, and within a short period of time they e-mailed me all the account verifications and I was ready to go. Now the good part, I was going to have someone do 2 sites for me, but found out they would were a little backed up and could not do them for at least a few weeks, Rather than pay for an unused hosting plan, I sent Webzpro an e-mail explaining the situation and asked them to cancel the acct. Not a problem, they were accommodating as possible and did multiple follow up emails to confirm they had credited my CC account and at every turn acted as professional and courteous as can be. In a few weeks when those site are ready to be put up, I will go right back to Webzpro based on how thet treated my situation. They stood behind their money back guarantee and made it as painless as possible. My first impression of them is that they are a well run company with customer service driven employeees who understand the value of good customer service. I don't believe thay are one of the "biggies" in this business, but I got the feeling they try and treat their customers as personal as possible. Webzpro will get my future business.

Stupid support

I'm looking for good hosting company, found that site and read that webzpro are pretty good. OK, went to their site and started registration process.

I need to say, that I have many projects including some sucessful, but that is a problem still - I'm from Russia. Oh yes, Russia. It seems many of you still think that there are only cheaters and hackers, but no - there are millions of honest webmasters and owners of various projects. And I'm one of them.

OK, webzpro have no Russia in country listing. I've choosed our neighbor in geo - Ukraine. Webzpro send pin code, as I think via cell phone, I don't know because I didn't get their automated call.

After waiting for 30 mins I wrote them a ticket with questions why I didn't get any pin code and why there no my country in listing.

They replied quickly - respect for that. But they... attention - BANNED me like a f...g cheater! And I even can't contact them via tickets or emails. They are like kids that afraid everything.

I think that they are cool and making their job good, but this moment is really "funny" and I want to give them BIG MINUS in reputation for that foolishness. :(

Biggest Con: They don't accept honest webmasters and owners from Russia - it's foolishness. :(

Response by Michael Budney, who is the owner of WebzPro:

There has never been an instance that we felt the need to actually respond to a review but we did feel this one warranted a response.

First we do not dismiss Alexander in any way and we do understand why he would become upset since he did want to use our services because he is a professional and was looking for a hosting company that would provide the services he would need. Unfortunately there are several countries we do not accept clients from and Russia happens to be one of them. You cannot even order our service from that country because it has been removed as an option, thus no code would have been sent.

Certain countries fall under what is considered high risk. We simply choose not to service those counties.

WebzPro is THAT good !!!

I will admit that this my first experience with a webhost, but I did an extensive amount of research before I signed up. After reading all the glowing reviews about WebzPro, I took the plunge, all the while thinking "Surely some of these people must be exaggerating, no one takes care of so many people that well". I was wrong, they are THAT good !!! Whenever I needed their help, even when it was no fault of theirs, they were on it, and solved the issues like I was gold plated. I'm sure others will read this, and think what I thought, but for what it's worth, looking for service better than this is like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic (It's a fools errand).

Webzpro is a great!

I recommend Webzpro to anyone who is interested in uploading their own website online. To be honest, this was my first time ever buying a web host. So I was a little questionable when buying Webzpro. I wanted to get a reliable webhost with an affordable price. That was exactly what Webzpro offered to me. After using Webzpro for over 6 months now, I haven't had any problems. The uptime took only 24 hours, the server is never down, and I haven't called technical support since I bought it.

Excellent Host, Very Happy

I switched to Webzpro because they offer loads of script support, plenty of storage space, and generous bandwidth for a reasonable price. They have a very slick, automated sign-up system. When you set up a new site, their order processor calls you back with a verification code. Very cool. If you have a problem with anything, they have Flash animated help files, a support ticket system, and a phone number to call . It's a good support system. I've even called a couple times, and someone has always called me back within an hour or two. More important, when I've had questions, I've always received helpful answers. I am a happy Webzpro customer, and I recommend them to my customers.

Biggest Pro: Staff expertise! These people know what they're doing :)

Never Happier

We have been with WebzPro for almost four years now and all we have to say is thank you so much. They promised us uptime, reliability and service and not once in all that time have they disappointed.

In the last four years we may have had to contact support maybe three times and every time without fail they were right there to help in minutes. Three times in four years, we have been with web hosts that we seemed we needed support every other day.

WebzPro runs a hosting service the way all other web host should. They deliver on what they promise.

Thank you to WebzPro and their entire staff we are looking forward to another four years.

Biggest Pro: Service and uptime
Biggest Con: none come to mind

Excellent Customer Service and Easy for Beginners

I had never created a website before and was extremely intimidated by the task but wanted the flexibility of having complete control over content. Every time I hit a snag in the process, customer service was there with the answers and it never took more than 24 hours to get a response. Several times I received my answers in less than an hour.

They have always been quick to respond to questions and problems, billing is smooth and easy and I can honestly say that there really has been nothing to complain about which is rare these days. If it hadn't been for Webzpro, I would have probably had to pay someone else to create and update my site and I wouldn't have the satisfaction that I created it myself!

As long as the great service continues, I'm your customer for life and I tell everyone I know about your site. Keep up the great work!

Biggest Pro: Excellent customer service
Biggest Con: Some restrictions with RVSitebuilder

Customer Service

For a novice, the support has been great! I know enough html to be dangerous so trying to use the canned software (RVSitebuilder) and occasionally throwing in code has been a challenge but I know I can always count on the reps to help me out of the tight spots. I never would have attempted to build my own site without assistance so this has been a great experience for me!

WebzPro Has Great Customer Support

If you want a host that has customer support people that treat you like you are important, WebzPro is my recommendation. They have been very responsive to any request or problem that I was having. This is a great host if you are new to having a full-featured hosting service because if you can't find the answer to your question on their site, you can actually talk to someone who will answer the question. Originally my website was hosted by Angelfire and I left them because of the lack of customer support which I received and their inability to fix or even explain a problem with my site. I do not take anything for granted and periodically verify that my sites are up and running and I can log into my account. One night, I could not log into my WebzPro account and could not view my sites so a trouble ticket was submitted. The reply was received within a (remarkable) 2 hours and the problem fixed (having to do with new server installations) within the same 2 hours. That represents excellent customer support!

Biggest Pro: Customer Support
Biggest Con: None

Simply Wonderful!!

For over 10 years, I have been the webmaster for my church and have also maintained my personal website. Both websites were through Angelfire (Lycos owned) and for about $5 a month per site, there were no pop-up ads and all seem to be good. Then our friends at Angelfire did something to the system and all of a sudden any dial-up visitors could not download any file more than 120 kb! Since the church site had many progressive downloads (plays while the file downloads) of sermons and music optimized for 56k downloads, the dial-up visitors would only hear a few seconds of the sermons or songs. I sent email after email about the problem and even sent an email to one of the directors but after months of trying, the problem still existed. And of course there was no telephone number for you to call for anything technical.

I switched to WebZPro (a little less than a month ago) because of the very positive remarks I had read on the web and I was just blown away at the awesome customer support and features offered through their system as compared to Angelfire. For price (about $5 a month) of one account at Angelfire, the church website and my personal website could be placed in the same account with their own individual www addresses. All the church staff could have their own email accounts. All the progressive downloads worked for the sermons and songs. We have way more storage and bandwidth and a tremendous number of utilities and interfaces to help with file transfers and other functions. Payment can be made every month or every 6 months (at a discount) and by several methods including Pay Pal.

Whenever I had a problem understanding something, someone at WebZPro would respond (to a trouble ticket that day) and I even got to speak to technical support personnel to help get me started in using some of the utilities and to clear up my questions. When I did speak to them, they were patient and did not rush me and really made me feel as though I was a valued customer. For a while, I really did feel as though I was important before reminding myself that I was only paying about $5 a month.

I was up and running in only about a day because they have so many video tutorials available, email, and "real person" support options. Maybe next month they may "crash and burn" but for right now they get a perfect 10 from me and I would highly recommend WebZPro to anyone looking for a quality and customer-focused web host. I like it so much that I upgraded to the plan that is around $10 a month. The WebZPro person that was helping me with the upgrade asked me why I was upgrading because I was not using a lot of the present plan capability. My answer was "I like it".
