About Web Hosting Hub
Basically Web Hosting Hub is started with targeting small business customers offering affordable shared hosting. it is the InMotion Hosting sister company founded in 2010 having headquarter in Virginia Beach, VA. Owning 2 main hosting data centers in U.S.A. west and east cost.
Web Hosting Hub is giving easy to use platform to fulfill their 40,000 customers requirements. Managing their issues and concern with well qualified support team.
As all hosting providers moving to the SSD storage WHHub also using all their servers stuffed by SSD (solid-state drive) that can be 20X faster than regular mechanical hard drive as per all hosting providers who are using SSD but they all give you different speed performance actually this 20X faster claim I will explain in spacial blog post.
I have some experience of Web Hosting Hub some of my projects was hosted on their servers, basically I come across with Web Hosting Hub from my client who are using their services.
When I worked on Web Hosting Hub servers I found interesting to explore more I started tracking their services.
In past 4 years I am looking very closely their offers, reviews, customer complaints, speed, up-time reports which I will share here to get better idea about the hosting provider.
I am not using all details based on my personal experience I use so many third party app and organization data like pingdom, BBB (Better Business Bureau), trustpilot where we can find most trusted and verified real customer and business data.
Who should go with Web Hosting Hub?
In my opinion who want to start new website or blog, newcomers (beginners), small scale business can get affordable, reliable and scalable hosting plan from Web Hosting Hub but if you wish to host establish expanded online solution you can go with A2 Hosting or BlueHost which can give you more secured easy to scalable hosting solutions.

Average response time of Web Hosting Hub is between (700ms to 800ms) which actually good for beginners but can’t impress experts who believe under 400ms response time from the hosting services.
They use SSD (solid-state drives) to gain better performance from their servers which everyone on is claiming 20X faster than regular hard drives and this actually research topic claiming is not enough.
Web Hosting Hub is not faster even not claiming too but consistent speed and up-time which gives this hosting provider better place in the market.
See report bellow for last 24 months you can see their consistency in term of performance and up-time.
See following December 2019 day-by-day Web Hosting Hub performance report.
Like performance Web Hosting Hub is average hosting service for up-time too which is not best but not bad too.
Web Hosting Hub is small but consistent with 99.94% up-time which is not good sign of hosting service but in the market most hosting providers has same or near by up-time averages so if we think in term of market standards Web Hosting Hub is giving good up-time to their customers.
You might thinking how do I know average up-time of this web hosting provider I have proof from third party app pingdom who gives you everyday website performance and up-time report.

Web Hosting Hub will migrate your up to 3 websites and databases for free unless they are not exceeded 5GB in total, they added as promise of 0 down time under the process of website migration.
For any online purchase you should check their money back (Refund) policies which make sense.
90-Day money back guarantee yes which is big time to check and experience any service before make any good or bad decision.
That means if you’re considering giving them a chance, you have an almost risk-free chance to ‘test drive’ their services for a full three months.
Web Hosting Hub is giving such huge time to test and learn their services, they don’t pressurize you to become permanent customer within a month or less they give you full 3 months of time to decide you should continue with Web Hosting Hub or not.
This may give you a reason to trust the hosting provider where you have guarantee of 90-days until that you can play with your website and make it perfect, but if you didn’t got withing 3 months you can still have option to get your money back and think you did work on free hosting.
Note: Only hosting fees are refundable if you had registered free domain with your plan you need to pay full fees, same with paid SSL Certificate, Domain Privacy and other addons which you purchased with your hosting plan.
For any service biggest challenge is to provide irresistible support system, customer can be anyone who purchases your services and can have any kind of questions and issue but service provider can’t give them proper answers can be very harmful for the any business.
For Web Hosting Support I contacted them personally like I do for any support review I try personally first if they are responsive or not, I found they are responsive took 4 minutes for first response but after that I talked continue and got answers on point.
I can say the support is good but not best we can say because lake of memorials yes they run community forum which is great initiative in term of self helping.
I can only recommend this web hosting for who are going to start website and not having plan to make it huge because of hosting space and inodes quota is very low.
Overall Web Hosting Hub is good I can say there few things which I must admit here:
Security features are paid which should be free on their assets they just giving on rent so it is their responsibility to provide safe and secure servers to their client who wanted to upload their valuable content.
Only get refund for your hosting plan all extras are non refundable.
Long term test showing speed and up-time is consistent!
