WebSecureStores is certainly no newbie when it comes to the web hosting world. They were founded in 2003. WebSecureStores is a company which focuses on serving clients from all parts of the world and offers Windows hosting solutions to churches, businesses, individual blogs, websites, forums, and eCommerce websites. Really whatever kind of site you want to create WebSecureStores should be able to help you. They offer a plethora of services to their clients. They specialize in DotNetNuke, Asp.Net, SQL Server, and many others.
Whenever, I review a web hosting company I want to look at all their features, performance, uptime, and then their customer support. Based on all my research I will then either recommend them or point you elsewhere.
Features of WebSecureStores
WebSecureStores offers a number of different shared hosting plans. 4 in total; they are as follows.
This plan offers 10 GB of disk space, 100 email accounts, 1 SQL, 10 MySQL, and is $5 per month.
This plan offers 150 GB of disk space, 500 email accounts, 1 SQL, 25 MySQL, and is $10 per month.
This plan offers 300 GB of disk space, 1,000 email accounts, 4 SQL, 35 MySQL, and is $20 per month.
This plan offers 500 GB of disk space, unlimited email accounts, 10 SQL, 50 MySQL, and is $20 per month.
I should note that will all these shared hosting plans you can easily setup WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc. They do state that you get unlimited bandwidth per month, but realistically you can’t expect a shared Windows server to support that. Instead, you will be find with 200-300 unique visitors per month. The prices are quite cheap for their basic plan. Their business plan for $20 is pretty expensive for a shared plan. However, WebHostingHub does beat them in terms of price for each of their shared plans.
If you’re developing a WordPress site WebSecureStores does have a specific plan that will looking appealing to you. At this time they offer 3 different plans for WordPress. The details are down below. Honestly, when you go to their site at WebSecureStores.com and click on “WordPress Hosting” you will just get a list of their 3 packages. The plans are:
- AdvancedPlan ($7.96 month)
- Reseller 5 ($17.95 month)
- VPSPlan ($16.69 month)
It really doesn’t tell you how many resources or anything you can use. Just says you get 24/7 support, Windows hosting experts since 2003, IIS 8.0 Fast CGI, PHP 5.4, 99.9% uptime, and a “one click installer”. However, there a number of services like Media Temple, WP Engine, and Page.ly that all specialize in WordPress managed hosting.
They also offer 4 different VPS plans for you to choose from. The details and specifications are down below.

With each of these plans you can choose from Windows Server 2012 64 bit, Windows Server 2008R2 64 bit, Windows Server 2003 32 bit, or Centos 6.3 23/64 bit.

They do allow you to try out their control panel before signing up for any Reseller account, too. You can easily setup your billing and specify how much you want to charge your clients each month for the space they will use.
With WebSecureStore, speed is a big factor. There are many complaints regarding the server speed but they have been solved (or so they say). Their customers are generally not happy about the performance with them. With other companies, you may not face such a problem. Initially you may like the package you purchased but after using it for about nine months you may feel like you should have purchased something else. With many other company products, this may not be the case. WebSecureStore will solve your problems and issues quickly or it may take longer. If you are lucky then you will get fast solutions but if the problem is critical then getting the solution may take days or even weeks. This makes the performance of WebSecureStore average. The same may be the case with other companies but there are many such companies which provide fast solution to all types of problems. If you have to wait for months then you will feel that you have done a mistake by purchasing this product, so this can be the situation with other companies also. There are many other companies whose customers are highly satisfied with their performance. It seems to be a grab bad, good or bad?
WebSecureStores Customer Service
WebSecureStore is questionable. Customer service is something which can work well at times while other times it may not work well. This is the case with almost all companies. WebSecureStore offers good customer service provided your problem is not very crucial. If the problem is very crucial then it may take months to get a solution for them. There are many companies which have excellent professionals who can solve even the most complex problem within minutes. WebSecureStore offers 24/7 customer support just like SiteGround. Their support can be in the form of live chat, emails, or documentations. If your problem is an easy one, then the solution will be quick or else you may have to stop your work for some time.
There are many issues which have come up with WebSecureStore services. It cannot be regarded as the only company providing web services because there are many other companies which are equally good. I would choose InMotion or GreenGeeks over them hands down. WebSecureStore offers a wide range of options to choose from but the case is similar with most of the other companies.
