Unlimited Disk Space

WebHostingPad offers unlimited disk space with its shared hosting packages, with the understanding that “unlimited” is incremental. The initial quota for disk space is 10 GB (gigabytes), which the majority of users will never exceed. If you have used 90% or more of this quota, you may contact WebHostingPad to request an increase, which WebHostingPad will grant you, free of charge, if and only if you meet the following requirements:


  • Your account is active and in good standing, without outstanding unpaid charges, and;
  • Your site complies with the terms of service laid out in this contract, and;
  • The majority of your disk space is not used for online backup, including storage for multimedia content such as, but not limited to, movies, music, photos, emails, or other media, as laid out below.
  • Your disk space is intended for storing necessary site files, such as .html, .css, .php, .js, .tpl, and other files required for displaying your site online. It is not intended for massive quantities of multimedia files, included, but not limited to, photo files (.jpg, .png, .gif. .svg, .eps, .psd, etc.), video files (.avi, .mkv, .mov, .wmv, .mp4, etc.), music files (.mp3, .wav, .wma, .m4a, .flac, etc.), document files (.pdf, .docx, .pptx, .zip, .rar, etc.), or emails. You may allocate the first 10 GB of your hosting space however you like, with the understanding that to receive an increase, you must fall within these terms.

  • WebHostingPad reserves the right to suspend, without prior notification and at its sole discretion, your account if your site is found to be in violation of the terms or service, including use of your hosting space to store media or emails. You are solely responsible for removal of any and all excess media, email, or files to meet the criteria of these terms, and/or to avoid suspension. If you wish to set up POP3 or IMAP to store your emails elsewhere, WebHostingPad Support will help you, with the understanding that we are under no obligation to do so.

    Unlimited Bandwidth

    WebHostingPad offers unlimited bandwidth with its shared hosting packages, with the understanding that “unlimited” is incremental. The initial quota for bandwidth is 100 GB (gigabytes) per month, which the majority of users will never exceed. If you have used 90% or more of this quota, you may contact WebHostingPad to request an increase, which WebHostingPad will grant you, free of charge, if you meet the following requirements:

  • Your account is active and in good standing, without outstanding unpaid charges, and;
  • Your site, both in bandwidth usage and general usage, does not violate or otherwise disregard the terms of service.

  • WebHostingPad reserves the right to deny bandwidth increase, suspend your account, or take further action, if your site or account does not comply with the terms of service, including if your bandwidth usage is caused by illegal or malicious means, unintentional or not, or your site is compromised in such a way as to alter bandwidth usage significantly, to the harm of other users. In the event that your bandwidth usage is caused by malicious or unnatural means, and 1) the malicious or unnatural means are resolved and no longer acting on the account or site, and 2) you still use 90% or more of your bandwidth quota, you may then request a bandwidth increase, which WebHostingPad will, at its sole discretion, decide to grant or deny. WebHostingPad is not liable for any denial of bandwidth increase, or loss or damages resulting from that denial, that occur.

    Site Transfers

    Website transfers from a previous host to WebHostingPad will be done free of charge. This free transfer is only valid when the website being transferred is currently hosted with a different web hosting company. Any transfers from one WebHostingPad account to another WebHostingPad account in an attempt to avoid paying renewal fees, or for any disingenuous reason, will result in a $24.95 transfer fee for our time and assistance, at WebHostingPad’s sole discretion.

    Transfers consist of website files and databases only. Email addresses, FTP accounts, subdomains, addon domains, parked domains, and other services, addons, or features must be recreated in cPanel with WebHostingPad.

    The maximum account transfer size cannot exceed 2 GB.

    You are entitled to only 1 free transfer per WebHostingPad account. In the event you wish to transfer multiple outside hosting accounts to WebHostingPad and consolidate them into one, additional fees will apply based on the total number of hosting accounts you are consolidating. WebHostingPad does not recommend consolidating a VPS or dedicated service with multiple cPanel accounts into a single shared hosting account. However, if you wish to do this, only one cPanel account will be transferred to WebHostingPad for free. Any additional accounts being transferred for consolidation will incur additional fees.

    You must provide WebHostingPad with your previous hosting account’s FTP details, control panel login, MySQL login, and any other requested information for WebHostingPad to successfully transfer the account.

    WebHostingPad cannot guarantee a successful transfer, although we will try our very best, if any of the following conditions are met:

  • The previous host uses a different MySQL version than WebHostingPad;
  • The previous host uses a different PHP version than WebHostingPad;
  • The previous host uses different server configurations than WebHostingPad;
  • The server of the previous host experiences frequent and/or continuous timeouts during the transfer process;
  • Any other condition that can compromise file or database integrity occurs.
  • Free Domain Offer

    WebHostingPad offers 1 free domain name registration to new customers who order a hosting account.

    This free domain is valid for 1 year of domain registration, and must be used with the “FREEDOMAIN” coupon code.

    The “FREEDOMAIN” coupon code must be used at the time of sign-up, in conjunction with a domain registration in your cart, for this offer to be honored.

    The “FREEDOMAIN” coupon code has a maximum value of $14.95. Any domain registered that exceeds this amount will not be free and the customer is responsible for paying any cost exceeding $14.95.

    The “FREEDOMAIN” coupon code cannot be used in conjunction with any other coupon code, special offer, or discount.

    Domain transfers or additional domain registrations are eligible for the free domain offer if requested within the first 30 days of sign-up, and if the “FREEDOMAIN” coupon code was not already used on your account.

    After the first year, domains are priced and renewed at the regular yearly domain registration rate.

    If you previously took advantage of a free domain for life offer and you upgrade to a new pricing package, it voids the offer, and that domain is no longer free for life.

    30 Day Money Back Guarantee

    Each of WebHostingPad’s shared hosting plans carries an unconditional 30-day money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied within the first 30 days, you will be given a full refund.

    The following services do not qualify for any refunds, including the 30-day money back guarantee:

  • Account renewals. Refunds are only available for new accounts and will not be provided for renewals of any kind.
  • Additional items, including, but not limited to, addons, SSLs, and site transfer fees.
  • Domain name registration or domain name renewals.
  • Services or service fees.
  • All sales of services and products listed above are final and non-refundable, and WebHostingPad reserves the right to pursue all available courses of action to obtain payment.

    Any account that is or has been in violation of WebHostingPad’s Abuse Terms or General Terms of Service is not entitled to a refund. This applies to currently and formerly abusive or harmful accounts, regardless of your awareness. Please refer to the General Terms for our Abuse Policy.

    There is a hosting industry standard to offer discounted prices to new sign-ups, and then revert back to regular rates once the first term is up - much like phone, television, and internet providers.


    WebHostingPad also follows this standard, so the prices you see listed are for new clients only. But while other hosts will double or even TRIPLE your rates after the first term, we only add $2.00 more per month to our shared hosting prices. That makes our regular rates some of the most competitive in the industry.


    In order to maintain our US-based support and our advanced hosting infrastructure, we simply can't grant you the special offer for renewals. But that doesn't mean you have to break the bank.


    So don't fret when your second invoice is more than your first - you're still getting one of the best deals around, and you will be for years to come.
