LiquidWeb used to be a go-to brand for hosting. Founded in 1997, the company was named as the Inc500 Winner for six consecutive years from 2007 to 2012. However, LiquidWeb lost the award in the past two years. Curious to find out whether it is still good, we have carefully reviewed its shared hosting services.
The company offers four shared packages, which are all claimed to be expert shared hosting plans. The plans are named as Standard, Webmaster, Professional, and Semi-Dedicated starting at $14.95/mo, $19.95/mo, $24.95/mo and $40/mo respectively. A small discount is available with annual plans. For example, the Standard plan costs $12.46/mo with a yearly payment term.
To be honest, even the discounted price is much higher than the average price in the market. After studying the hosting features, speed, reliability and support deeply, we find that the packages are not worth the price because the company has sacrificed some users' benefits for its own profits. To know why, keep reading the following parts for details.
