Powweb Hosting a Scam?

There has been a few claims that have surfaced over the past weeks regarding a web hosting service committing scams to internet users. This web hosting company, Powweb Hosting, which caters to small businesses worldwide, claims that they are offering a 50% discount for an Unlimited Hosting Solution.

Furthermore, Powweb Hosting also claims that they offer the following with their $3.88/month hosting solution:

  • FREE Domain
  • UNLIMITED Storage & Bandwidth
  • $125 in Google Adwords, Yahoo! Search and Facebook Ad credits
  • Free Yellowpages.com Listing
  • MySQL, PHP, CGI
  • Point & Click WYSIWYG Site Builder
  • 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

The offer sounds Too Good to be True doesn’t it?

Well the verdict is…. IT IS TRUE! POWWEB HOSTING is NOT A SCAM!

I had a small project designing a website for a client just recently, and decided to give Powweb Hosting a try given their great deals & freebies, and found out that their claims for superior service is a fact, NOT A SCAM!

Not only that, their customer service is top notch, especially with the option to contact them via Live Chat. They were available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even when I contacted them once at 1pm (Malaysian time, GMT +8), and again at 3.30am. Seems that although they are in the USA, there is no problem to contact them be it during the day, or late in the wee hours of the morning, in any time zone!

So if your small business needs a good hosting, I can tell you that Powweb Hosting is well worth the money. Their $3.88/month Unlimited Hosting Solution package with free domains is one of the best in the market, if not the best.

Fatcow Web Hosting – Humor helps you sell

Moo!… a pretty catchy, fun going way of branding a web hosting service.

To be real honest, I was so attracted to Fatcow’s  brand name that I decided to host this blog with them. To me, the layout of their site is “relaxing” to the eye, and it was a “fun” brand to buy from. Below is their landing page.While I do not have the exact numbers, I bet they are doing well selling their web hosting packages.

Other than that, Fatcow offers Unlimited Storage & Bandwidth, definitely helpful to store my files and handle millions of visitors (will get there someday).

So that’s a lesson to be learned – when marketing products, you don’t have to be serious or formal all the time. Sometimes a tinge of humor will go a long way in helping you bring in the sales (and of course, a “Beefy” discount will also help… lol).

So if you’re interested to join the herd, checkout Fatcow’s 50% discount offer. They’re even giving away a Smart ForTwo car, so don’t miss out.
