WSS Hosting: Strike one against WH4L

WSS Hosting: Strike one against WH4L

One of the attractive SharePoint hosting packages I found was WebHost4Life. I had previous experience with them building a DotNetNuke site so I decided to try them for SharePoint. Creating a new hosting account took just minutes. However, I was led to believe that I was then going to be able to create my SharePoint site just as easily. However, you cannot create a “Business” class WSS site from the control panel. You are told, after filling out the form, that you have to contact support. But you’re not told how to contact support or what information to provide. I was able to figure this out after a few minutes of live chatting, but this leaves a bad taste in my mouth. If I run into any more complications I will probably try a different hosting company.

Another thing that bugs me about WH4L is their slogan: “Same Value, Much Better Price.” Sorry, but since price is a component of value, that slogan is mathematically impossible.
