Along with web hosting you also get DNS management, FTP access and email services. You are allowed unlimited mailboxes that have WebMail access, email forwarding and spam filters.

Other Related Services Offered

Like most other web hosting providers, PowWeb offers Domain Registration and related services. Free and paid marketing services are offered as well through the PowWeb web site. These services range from Yahoo! marketing credits to TargetClicks PPC programs, web site design programs and logo design consultants. Most of these services are not provided by PowWeb directly but by their business partners. The TargetClicks Search Engine Marketing service is done through PowWeb's control panel and offers an easier and more automated way of advertising on search engines like Google and Yahoo.

PowWeb also offers E-mail Exchange Hosting. This allows you to access your e-mail, contacts and schedule from any location via Outlook. All this information is stored on the server which allows for a safe and secure enviroment.

Cost & Value

There is above average value with the One Plan from PowWeb. When you combine the features offered, the built in web site redundancies and PowWeb's low price on a 1 year term, this hosting plan beats out most other competitors prices. They may not have all the features offered that other providers have but PowWeb have the popular ones most sites need to operate.

Reliability & Performance

PowWeb prides it self on it's web servers uptime. Their hosting infastructure mimics large corporations like Microsoft and Google. The web sites PowWeb host are load balanced and run on multiple servers. If one or more web server goes down, the other servers will process the user requests. This process is seamless and is complete true, redundancy. The web site owner and the people visiting your site would never know it had happened.

With PowWeb's unique infrastructure they went with a custom built solution for the control panel called OPS. While it is fairly easy to navigate and use for the average web site owner, beginners may have some difficulties and may have questions for Customer Support. When you compare OPS with CPanel, I feel overall CPanel is better. Of course I've used CPanel with other hosting providers for several years now and I am much more familiar with it.

Customer Support

24/7 customer support is available to all customers from PowWeb. You can contact them via a toll free phone call, live chat and email. Community forums, FAQs and a knowledge base makes up the complete support resource center.


Is PowWeb a good hosting provider? They most definitely are. If you are looking for a Unix shared hosting environment for a low price and PowWeb has the features available you need, then they would be an excellent choice.
