WebInternetHosting, Number 22 in June 2010 list for webhostinstuff.com, today they are 19th host. Webhostingstuff does not know when this site came into existience. But looking at the bbb record and the domain who is I am going guess between late 2009 and early 2010.
The name alone smacks of redundancy. Its no surprise that they bought the domain last year, its not a prize winning domain and probable would have never been picked up by any one with even the smallest sense of marketing. The design is just as unappealing as the domain name. They are another company trying to get into the whole environmentally friendly gold foil. But they are far more limited then any host that I have reviewed on to what makes them green.
WebInternetHosting whois information tells me alot
I don’t think there has ever been a time that I have gotten this much information from doing a whois.
Queried whois.internic.net with “dom webinternethosting.com”…
Domain Name: WEBINTERNETHOSTING.COM Registrar: GODADDY.COM, INC. Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com Referral URL: http://registrar.godaddy.com Name Server: NS859.WEBSITEWELCOME.COM Name Server: NS860.WEBSITEWELCOME.COM Status: clientDeleteProhibited Status: clientRenewProhibited Status: clientTransferProhibited Status: clientUpdateProhibited Updated Date: 20-jan-2010 Creation Date: 02-apr-2009 Expiration Date: 02-apr-2015
First their not a webhost in a traditional sense:
- Host has its own facility
- Host is co-located and has own servers.
They are a reseller with hostgator. At first the only review that they have made me think it was fake (and it actually was when you read further down).
Due to the bad grammar I had thought that this was a fake review. Considering webinternethosting has only existed as a domain since 2009. Especially after looking to see where the domain was located.
Domain Name: DISCOUNTBEAUTYDEPOT.COM Registrar: ENOM, INC. Whois Server: whois.enom.com Referral URL: http://www.enom.com Name Server: NS859.WEBSITEWELCOME.COM Name Server: NS860.WEBSITEWELCOME.COM Status: clientTransferProhibited Updated Date: 04-apr-2010 Creation Date: 22-apr-2009 Expiration Date: 22-apr-2019
It looked like they were really hosted with hostgator and not webinternethosting. After looking at the dns of WebInternetHosting I realized this was a reseller not a actual webhost. But then I found out the owner of discountbeautydepot.com is also the owner of webhinternethosting when I took a look at their better business bureau record.
WebInternetHosting’s BBB record
After looking at their BBB record I have to say this company is a scam. Yeah they may have a A rating. But they faked a review with webhostingstuff, and not a very good review at that.
I can tell you the additional sites found on that list were not around prior to 2009. Its also been my experience that the BBB contacts companies and asks them when their original start date was. Clearly the main domain for this company was not around before 2009.

My finale thoughts on WebInternetHosting
Their another greenwashed company trying to market on whole “we are green” because they buy credits. But in the end there is no proof of those credits. But there is proof of them faking their only review on webhostingstuff. If they are willing to fake a review on webhostingstuff, what else will WebInternetHosting fake?
