As a host for developers, WebFaction keeps a rather low profile. Unlike most companies, it does not release any information on its founding or places any About Us page on its official site. Nevertheless, we still take the trouble to review its hosting services in case some readers need to know.
The company does shared hosting as well as managed dedicated servers. Judged by the product mix, WebFaction is by no means a professional hosting provider. It offers only one shared hosting package, which costs $9.5/mo if paid monthly or $8.5/mo if paid annually.
Frankly speaking, the price is acceptable but not very competitive on the hosting market. Some top hosting companies price their shared hosting plans around $5/mo with uncompromised performance. Is it because WebFaction offers incomparable features, uptime or support? Not really. Please proceed to the detailed analysis to see for yourself.
