Having talked about the advantages of whogohost let’s quickly look at the disadvantages of whogohost hosting.
. Cons of whogohost (disadvantages)
. They’re good at blacklisting of web IP Adress and E-mail blockage
Several customers of this great local hosting company have expressed their discomfort with the negative effect and experience with whogohost. Their individual IP Adress were blacklisted and outgoing E-mail messages were blocked.
. Website redirection
Its a surprise to me that several users of whogohost hosting provider noted that they at some point had their websites redirected to another website, sometimes these websites are websites that are not even in their niche so to say.
. Server downtime
I wouldn’t see it fit to remind you that the uptime of your website is very essential in the the blogosphere but in this aspect, whogohost is very very poor in upholding the uptime of a website and as such increases the downtime of a website.
Several users of whogohost have utterly complained about the website downtime being in excess.
To be certain, it was gathered that some users websites could be unavailable from ten minutes up to two days and this is the same exact issue we noticed using philmore host. Specific to whogohost, the several downtime always occus during the night.
. Data loos and backup
Some customes have indeed suffered several loss as a result of hosting their websites with whogohost or having any data kept with them as they do not offer a perfect backup for files and as such have lost several of them. This isn’t a good idea right?
. Lack of technical staffers
The employees of whogohost are not too good with handling the technical aspects of the companys services and as such have made their customers to feel dissatisfied with their employee services.
As this was asserted, we believe this could be really a mess if the customers reactions were true.
As several people have vouched for the web hosting company in the years past, it is now a very difficult task for several others to also speak the same on the services of the website considering the fact that their recent services are too poor to their competent customers.
Notwithstanding the face that people spoke against them in this recent time, we still know and trust whogohost as the best hosting provider in the country as our review about philmorehost spoke way bad beyond what we saw with whogohost.
Note: We will be writing another detailed review of this company whenever they decided to improve on their services.
