Web.com review | offering bundled services to make them attractive

 

Web.com is heavily into marketing to the small business user who has little to no experience in web, SEO or marketing.

Web.com will build you an eCommerce site and include marketing, SEO and a toll free phone number, all for $179/mo.

They also want to be your one stop shop and have bundled its services to make that attractive.

The sales on the site are aggressive and you are greeted with a chat operator if you wander on to the high ticket areas of the site.

 

 

THE GOOD / 

THE BAD / 

  • Offer all in one packages
  • Focused on Small Businesses
  • Offer 800 number, Facebook pages & SEO
  • e-Commerce functionality is robust
  • Pricing not obvious and no free trial
  • Ongoing fees not disclosed until after signup
  • Phone call required to cancel service

 

THE BOTTOMLINE /

We believe they have some room for improvement if they want to compete with the big guys!

 

Hosting is offered as an ala carte item beginning at $5.95/mo.

Support is offered if you pay for it via chat. Most support is directed back to email. There is a ticket system.

It is not clear what control panel is used.

Also, the builder is a custom builder with limited templates.

Again, if you are new to the Internet and have a business you need to get up online fast, this may be a fit.

However, we found many complaints online about the poor service.
