Webhelps claims to “make it easy to build your site,” but can they stand up to the competition? Let’s see what this unique hosting company has to offer. If you’re entirely new to hosting, this company might be a very good fit for your needs, as they do try to walk you through each step of the process of hosting a website.

For this review, we’ll be taking a look at their business plans, of which there are currently five. The plans range from starter sized all the way up to serious hosting, but since this company is geared towards beginners, we’ll review their starter plan, the Silver Plan, which is priced at $13.95 per month. This plan offers 750 megs of disk space, which is a bit low considering other plans in this price range, but the bandwidth allotment of 48 gigs should be more than enough for most business uses.

Only 30 email accounts are provided, which is a bit of a downside, but again, for most beginners, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem unless your company is quite large. You can have up to 3 gigs of RAID email storage, which is a nice feature and offsets the limitations somewhat. A personal email manager, announcer, spam filter and webmail client are all included and EasyMail set-up is offered to assist you in the process of creating and managing your email accounts.

Same-day set-up is provided and there is currently no set-up fee, which is always nice to see. A site creation tool is provided, as well as an appointment scheduler, website checker, search engine submission tool and a template gallery. An EasyStoreMaker is also provided and a SSL server is included with this plan. Technical support is provided via LiveChat and through their online support form. Since this service is intended for beginners, it would have been nice to see a little more options for support, or even a toll-free telephone number.

Overall however, this plan offers everything a small business needs to establish their online presence, and the price is pretty reasonable.
