Web Hosting Pad is one of the 3 web hosters I am currently using. It was by far the cheapest and support so far has been excellent.
Reports of it being slow?
I have had this a couple of time but found it was due something I was doing that caused them to throttle down my service. I didn’t feel I was using a massive amount of resources and I contacted them on chat and they corrected it straight away. I suppose it depends whether you think it’s a good thing or a bad thing that they are a bit over-zealous. In my case I was checking my Google Pageranks, quite a lot, but I’m guessing there could be some spammers or suchlike sharing the hosting and using massive resources at times. So on hte whole I guess it protects us.
