WebhostingPad VS SiteGround

WebhostingPad VS SiteGround

Can a company truly build a world-class web hosting product in just 5 years or less. You can bet there is a way, and it seems that WebhostingPad and SiteGround have found the right paradigm in a few short years.

Disclosure: We are a professional review site that receives compensation from the companies whose products we review. We test each product thoroughly and give high marks to only the very best. We are independently owned and the opinions expressed here are our own.

WebhostingPad started in the hosting industry in 2005 and has grown to over 150,000 hosted domains and is one of the top-rated companies in the industry. SiteBuilder has just 6 years of experience in the industry, but claims over 250,000 domains, 4 data centers, and a vast array of hosting extras for their clients.

How do you know which one to choose for your website? We do the legwork and compare these popular hosts side-by-side, and offer our recommendation. Read on.


At the time of this review, SiteGround offers a single shared-server plan for just $2.95 per month for 12 months. Their 2-yr plan is $6.95/mo, and a 3-yr plan offered at $5.95/mo. They also offer expanded hosting solutions for growing businesses with semi-dedicated hosting, dedicated hosting, and cloud hosting.

WebhostingPad offers their single plan for only $1.99 per month with 4 years prepaid. But if you just want a one-year plan, you can still save money by paying just $3.95 per month.

Products and Services

It’s not just the hosting – it’s the extras that make a hosting plan more valuable. WebhostingPad delivers extras for their clients with a free website builder, free marketing credits with social media and search engines, a top-rated control panel with cPanel software, and a full 30-day money back and 99.9% uptime guarantee.

SiteGround also offers a free site builder for their clients, plus additional paid extras for premium support, dedicated IP address, SPAM control, and daily backup. SiteGround also gives clients a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

Web Hosting Features

Features are not lacking for the WebhostingPad plan. You get unlimited bandwidth, disk space, hosted domains, email accounts, and MySQL databases. SiteGround also provides unlimited web space, monthly bandwidth, MySQL databases, and email accounts.

Both come with eCommerce solutions, but while WebhostingPad provides a single choice in OS Commerce shopping cart, SiteGround gives clients a choice of shopping cart software. Both also offer scripting support and multi-media.

Customer Service

WebhostingPad gives clients 24 hour support via telephone, chat, and email. SiteGround does provide these methods of support, but only on a limited basis. SiteGround clients needing technical support are directed to their online help desk.

Both provide a wide range of online help through a knowledgebase filled with articles and tutorials. SiteGround does have a little more extensive library of articles to help their clients with problems.


Picking a trust web host is never easy. SiteGround does have a great plan with room to grow through semi-dedicated, cloud, and even dedicated hosting plans. But for the affordability, 24 hour live support, client guarantees, and free extra products, WebhostingPad gets our recommendation.
