Features and Ease of Use
WNPower offers both Linux and Windows shared hosting. All plans offer the following set of basic features:
- SSD storage
- 100GB or more of bandwidth
- Unlimited email accounts
- Website builder
- Auto-installer with 100+ applications
They also offer a solid set of value-added features that include advanced WordPress tools available in cPanel, such as:
- Free SSL certificates
- Daily, weekly, and monthly backups
- Free website migrations
- WNPower tools for performance analysis, staging, and website administration
- Unlimited databases
WNPOWER tools include an extensive set of WordPress tools that are perfect for those looking to build WordPress websites. Also, I like that WNPower offers free SSL certificates, saving you money over similar hosts.
Beginners will like this provider as they offer both a website builder and an auto-installer for WordPress and other applications. With their specialized WNPower tools, this provider is particularly suited for WordPress hosting.
Pricing and Support
WNPower offers both Linux and Windows shared hosting with most of the features listed above. Their Linux-based hosting plans are outlined below:
|Storage||5GB SSD||Unlimited SSD|
I don’t see a logical reason to go with the Starter plan unless you already own your domain and just need to host a very simple website. The free domain alone is worth the extra cost for Unlimited.
WNPower’s Windows hosting plans are as follows:
|Storage||5GB SSD||10GB SSD|
It’s not surprising that the storage and bandwidth offered in these plans are somewhat limited. This is a common practice among many Windows hosting services. Additionally, it’s worth noting that a free domain is not included.
Pricing on both Linux and Windows hosting is a bit better than you see on most hosts. However, with Windows hosting you’ll also have to pay for your own domain regardless of the plan. You do get a free SSL certificate on all plans, so that will save you money.
WNPower has solid support including 24/7 live chat support, telephone, email, and ticketing support. As is typical of most web hosts, you’ll have to log in to your client portal to access the ticket system. They have both local and international support numbers. There’s also a fairly robust database including several step-by-step guides to walk you through various support issues. I was able to reach a live chat agent immediately, and they were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
