Price & Cost Effectiveness


WIZ WEB HOST offers decent pricing on their web hosting plans. For a mere $4.99 a month, you receive 1000 MB of space and 50 GB of traffic, this is the basic plan but then it is so rich with features that it will suite the needs of even a small business enterprise. They also have linux based plans that cost $6.99 a month and $19.99 a month.
We suggest you look into the plan details so that you get to know more about what the plans have to offer. We think it is simply awesome. For someone who is looking to get a windows based web hosting plans so that they may use ASP, ASP.NET, MS Access, MSSQL... they should go with the Business Plan that costs about $24.99 a month.
Note: If you sign up for 3 or 6 months you need to pay a $20.00 setup fee but if you sign up for 12 or 24 months the one time setup fee of $20.00 is waived off..

DataCenter


WIZ WEB HOST uses Dell Power Edge 2650 servers, with their data center located in Schaumburg, IL. Their latest servers are quad Xeon 2.4 GHz Xeon processors, with 6 GB of memory and three 70 GB Raid Disk Drive. Compared to other web hosting companies, they dominate over any other server offered by any Web Hosting company. They currently use state of the art net infrastructure equipment and plan to offer many new features in the future such as load balancing.
Furthermore, they are connected to premium Redundant OC-12 Loops through TW Telecom. As a result, you will get above average web hosting performance and reliability that other providers normally charge a premium for.
Customer Service


Personally, customer support is always my first criteria for picking a web host, it comes before price, size and everything else. This is because I have had very bad experiences with some hosts that offer a lot in terms of price and size but were unable to solve simple issues.
The first thing I always do to test a web host is actually to mass-mail them with a lot of questions even before I buy! The host which deserves my money would be the host that will patiently reply to all my questions in a prompt and detailed manner. The most disgusting hosts are those which are unable to resolve simple issues for days, or are unable to keep track of the client’s history and repeatedly request you to describe the same issue. Some even keep bouncing your requests between different departments.
So far, the best customer support staff that I have met is the one from WIZ WEB HOST. Honestly I haven't seen a host that is as dedicated as WIZ WEB HOST when it comes to customer support. They have a very well trained support staff and I believe WIZ WEB HOST invests a lot on customer support. Other web hosts which can provide me with good customer support are HostGator, Globat and iPowerWeb. All the other hosts that I am recommending in this top 10 chart have also been very satisfactory in terms of customer support.

Control Panel


WIZ WEB HOST currently utilizes the latest version of the Hsphere control panel . The features are pretty much similiar to other control panels like CPanel. The Hsphere control panel has a main menu on the left side from where you can navigate to the sub menus. On the main screen of the control panel you will see icons from where you can manage your accounts like adding of domains, configuring the domains, adding emails, FTP accounts, a file manager which is a kind of a graphical user shell access or to be precise something like a file manager.
We could say the control panel is full of features and it is been heard that WIZ WEB HOST is in a process of launching its own powerful control panel in the near future.

Overall


WIZ WEB HOST is definitely a choice of web hosting for many users. Not only does it score tops with best features for the price, but it is also great because you can call toll-free when you are in need of assistance. Other companies offering plans this low normally require that you e-mail them for support inquires, and even if they did provide support over the phone, there would be long distance charges.
Give WIZ WEB HOST a shot and you will not regret it.
