Webfusion Review – Billing and Money Back Guarantee 

All Webfusion hosting plans can be purchased monthly rather than yearly, so that you may change or cancel the service on time. And Webfusion promises a 30 day money back guarantee for their hosting packages. 

Webfusion Review - Drawback

Long response time - Many customers have complaints of very long call waiting times and were frustrated with the level of support that the company provides. Also the live chat is not very alive after all. You have to contact them via e-mail during business hours, which is not very convenient if you want an immediate response. 

When to Consider WebFusion

A number of UK web hosting providers are beginning to make a mark and establish themselves by stressing their UK credentials, and Webfusion UK is one of them. We highly recommend Webfusion to developers and medium sized businesses. For more information please visit www.webfusion.com

I have been on WebFusion for about 8 months running some of WordPress websites for my customers. Actually, the downtime has been unacceptable. Most have been during the night, but i have had up to 2 or 3 hours during the day. Really embarrass when having customers waiting to review changes in their websites. No matter how good it works in other factors, this poor performance is unacceptable.
