PowWeb is one of the oldest and most popular Web-hosting service providers out there. Established in 1999, PowWeb has almost ten years experience in this area providing hosting services at cheap and affordable prices. Some of the services advertised on its homepage, for only $3.38/month, are presented below.
- Unlimited Disk Space
- Unlimited Data Transfer
- Free Domain
- Host Unlimited Domains
- MySQL, >PHP, CGI
- SSL, FTP, Stats
- Point & Click Site Builder
- $75 in Yahoo & Google Ads Credits
- E-Commerce Included
- FrontPage/Dreamweaver ready
- 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
Other services include the Control panel, Webmail access (secure login), spam filters, and free applications such as Webalizer, AWStats, WordPress, phpBB, Joomla and Coppermine Gallery. In addition, the company develops its own custom Web hosting infrastructure and software internally to cater for their customers and provide 24/7 phone and chat support.
However, this review will be made from my own personal experience. While I have only been with PowWeb for about 6 months, I am yet to experience any major issues apart from a couple of downtimes and AWStats malfunction. The support and customer service has been quite consistent every time I contact them about these issues and tickets have been resolved within a short space of time.
The company offers a single hosting plan called, “One Plan, One Price” that consists of “a complete All-in-One hosting solution with plenty of disk space, bandwidth and additional features”. It uses a Debian platform and SQL, Perl and PHP Versions, 5.0.45, 5.8.8 and 4.4.8 respectively.
If what you are searching for is a very good low-cost Web hosting provider, to host a simple, personal or small business Website, then I would recommend giving PowWeb a consideration.
