Liquid Web Full Review 2022

Liquid Web Expert Review

Liquid Web has a strong reputation for offering a wide range of web hosting options. The company boasts approximately 35,000 customers worldwide and has been building its web hosting business for 20 years. We tested the company to see if its relatively expensive hosting prices resulted in exceptional solutions.

Liquid Web stands out from the rest because of its wide range of features and their flexibility. Liquid Web is a top choice for large and medium-sized businesses due to its customizability and fast load times.

Both the pros and cons

The pros:

  • Support staff are available 24/7/365 via live chat, telephone and email.
  • Customers will be satisfied with our fast loading times and almost zero service disruptions.
  • Cloudflare CDN and DDoS prevention make security top-of-mind.
  • With the assistance of experts in customer service, you can easily migrate and scale.
  • With the assistance of an automatic WordPress maintenance and a staging website, you can create stunning WordPress websites.
  • For complex web needs, deploy Liquid Web's customized server clusters.

Cons

  • This company does not offer shared web services anymore.
  • Prices for niche hosting companies tend to be higher than the rest.
  • Their knowledge is vast, but the tone of their presentation is more suited for web professionals than it is for beginners.

Prices and payment methods

Liquid Web offers a wide range of plans to suit a variety of business needs and budgets. The basic WooCommerce managed plan Beginner starts at $39 per month. It includes several essentials such as the Beaver Builder drag-and-drop website builder and SSL certificates, and mobile optimization.

Every WooCommerce plan comes with easy promotion scheduling tools as well as Abandoned Cart from Jilt. A basic WordPress package starts at $99 per month. It includes staging sites, daily backups, and many other development tools.

The managed Cloud VPS plans are priced at just $59 per month and offer developers many customization options, including root access and cPanel control panels from Plesk Onyx. Reselling Liquid Web services is also possible. Existing hosting customers who wish to become resellers receive tools and income-based discounts.

The pricing reveals that Liquid Web can be expensive, but it is a very affordable hosting solution. Businesses that are able to afford them will get great value. Customers who choose managed plans will be able to enjoy the many features and excellent security conditions, as well as knowledgeable support staff, are well-worth it.

It's easy to use

We found the various Liquid Web services easy to use for the most part. Although Liquid Web offers managed hosting solutions that are affordable for beginners, these products will not be able to meet the needs of larger businesses with complex web requirements. The Beaver Builder website creator and automatic backups and updates management included with WordPress plans can allow beginners to focus on their businesses without having to worry about the website.

Mid-range or enterprise businesses may be able to see how easy it is for Liquid Web to provide advanced features. The company's extensive knowledge allows web experts to become web-savvy.

Load times and reliability

We found that Liquid Web is very reliable when it comes down to uptimes. We also tested how long the service was down for over several months. The company had an average uptime of 99.9%. This makes Liquid Web a reliable and highly-reliable web host service. It is also far better than the industry's 99.4%. Our tests revealed that Liquid Web had a load time of approximately 500ms and occasionally dropped to as low as 400ms. You will find better uptime and near instantaneous loads with Liquid Web's deluxe services.

These are the features

Liquid Web hosting is more affordable, but each plan has many features. The basic WordPress plan offers automatic daily backups and staging sites. The basic WooCommerce package also offers a drag-and-drop website builder, Abandoned Cart from Jilt, and an exclusive platform that allows for faster load times. Developers have access to more advanced features, including root access and free Git repositories. They can also use SSH to customize their backend and control panels for cPanel and Plesk Onyx.

We found Liquid Web to be unique because of its customization and attention to details. You can work with the developers to get the hosting solution of your dreams.

Customer Support

We were impressed with Liquid Web customer service. The three channels of support they provide - email, chat and phone - all responded within an hour and sometimes under one minute. Every agent that we talked to was knowledgeable and friendly and could resolve most of our problems quickly. However, the enterprise plan does not include access to some of the more complicated support services such as customized account reviews and solutions architects' solutions.

Liquid Web's knowledgebase was also a delight, with hundreds of tutorials and articles, plus a section dedicated to common problems. The support tools and content seem designed for webmasters, so beginners might find them too complicated.

Review by a User

Each hosting service is reviewed in detail by our team to provide an objective review. Check out our reviews for a complete view on Liquid Web's performance against its competitors.

Conclusion

Liquid Web was expensive. We knew that, but we expected that Liquid Web's products were better than what the competition offered for less. Overall, Liquid Web met and often exceeded our expectations. Liquid Web's platform is easy to use for newbies, with features such as the Beaver Builder website creator in the ecommerce plan or the staging site in WordPress plans that allows them to experiment before they go live. All plans include stellar customer support that will help you through any issues.

Advanced functionalities such as root access and GIT repository allow you to set up your own development environment. Liquid Web manages most of their plans. This allows the developers to do much of the maintenance, and then some, so your IT staff can focus more on innovation.

We found Liquid Web to be an excellent web host, regardless of your experience level. Liquid Web is a top web host because it offers SSL certificates for all plans and automatic backups every day. WordPress updates are also included.

I have been hosting with Liquidweb since 2001 and I am extremely satisfied with what they offer. Their infrastructure is top of the line and its all backed by fantastic technical support. All of my requests have always been answered by admins who really know their game. My only negative is that they are a costly hosting provider. Then again, you get what you pay for. - Filip One of the most important things for me is having a support team that’s knowledgeable and doesn’t turn my requests down. Known host is that team. They always try to find a great solution for me, are incredibly fast and always spot on. Fantastic company all around. Very happy to have found them.

Things were going fine until we actually started to get high traffic. They could not figure out how to optimise and make things work. Application started to go down a lot of times. They even added a load balancer but still issues were not resolved. Moved to another host and things are stable now.

After several bad hosts over the years I found liquidweb. I must say this is the first time I ever felt good about my host. They are very reliable and have super fast response times to questions. Some of the employees lack a bit of personality (or perhaps they are just that professional?). Windows hosting is pricey though.

The control panel could be a little more user friendly and would like to have access to my domain names like I have had in the past.

I have received absolutely world-class service very time I have requested support. Sometimes it seems as though Liquid Web's techs can read minds. They quickly figure out what I am talking about even though I may not use the proper terminology. They inform me of their solution and they implement with lightning speed. I appreciate the service they provide. Thanks again team!

Liquid web has been like a breath of fresh air for me. I have worked with a handful of other hosting companies over the years. Nobody has even come close to matching the service level of Liquid Web. I can reach them at any hour of the day or night, and the support I receive is nothing short of fantastic. Web hosting is no longer a stressful experience for me!

Liquid Web continue to proactively support my web-hosting, security and website performance on line. When there are issues which are not in their control I have greatly appreciated their guidance, advice and support to have any issues addressed.

Formerly a very happy customer with WiredTree. A shame LiquidWeb totally destroyed the trust I had with WT after their takeover. Look around and you can see many other negative reviews from former WiredTree customers. Perhaps it is because they have grown so big and focus more on larger enterprise clients. After migration I got the same level of hosting performance but much less pro-active support. The biggest issue is they continually raised prices on my plan till they were over 70% more expensive than my previous WT bill, all over 1 year. The billing team is extremely slow in responding to requests and has very poor handover with the tech team. I'm leaving 3 stars for their stable hosting platform. However I find LiquidWeb is way overpriced for the level of performance and support...

I have been running my online business for almost 19 years. After changing several hosts I finally found Liquid Web. I have been with them since May 2010 and am more than satisfied. First class service and support. It could not be better. I highly recommend them. For your peace of mind.

I have enjoyed the LiquidWeb VPS server and its excellent Customer Service for over 2 years. I definitely recommend to other businesses who need trusting and reliable hosting.

I've had the website for my small business with several hosts over the last 20 years and Liquid Web is by far the best. Service is fast and reliable and overall it is a great value for what I need. Support has been great any time I have needed it. I highly recommend Liquid Web.

Liquid Web customer service is quite simply unbeatable. I’ve gone through three hosting companies before discovering liquid web. Other hosting companies can take days to respond to an issue. You’ll never know if your point of contact is an actual employee or an individual person acting as a reseller for that hosting company. And in most cases the point of contact does not come close to the technical level of any liquid web representative I’ve spoken with. Liquid Web excels in customer service answering calls within seconds, by a knowledgeable and friendly representative. In most cases your problem is resolved by the person answering the call. I’ve used liquid Web for a few years and will remain a loyal customer for years to come. I host my sass business on a liquid Web Dedicated server ...

The most significant factor that makes LiquidWeb a great hosting company is the tech support staff. They are very knowledgeable and helpful, and quick and easy to contact by phone. I'm a programmer and when I need support, I need to talk to someone that knows as much or more than I do. Considering the support and the servers they provide, the pricing is good. I've been with LiquidWeb since August 2013, and as long as they keep up the quality of service and support, I'll be with them for a long time.

Sadly I have watched LW tech support for windows just get worse and worse as time goes on. I can remember a time when using the chat support feature 99% of the time they would be able to solve the problem on the spot, now it rarely happens, the tech either makes it a email support request or even on occasion has flat out lied to me in the chat, which I later asked them about. I have even tried escalating to a supervisor on shift but rarely would I get a response. My last issue involved trying to exchange some bad ip address that THEY assigned to me, took 5 days to solve the ticket!! and 3 different supervisors. Also recently I had an issue with file permissions I was transferred to another support tech and I really think that they just ignored the request me to spite me, after 40 minute...

These guys have been spectacular! It was easy to set up. Very helpful. We've had zero problems "staying up" on the web and their pricing is great. Check them out for sure.

As a customer with Liquid Web since the late '90s, I have always received great service and support. Watching them grow and expand their products and services over the years has been amazing. Their uptime is stellar, and their support team has always gone above and beyond to help when a problem arises, even in some situations when the issue was not directly tied with their product or service. Their pricing structure is fair and flexible. I have recommended them to anyone asking for a solid host company without hesitation. Currently, I use both their Managed WordPress Server, and their Premium Business Email services, and all of my clients absolutely love the products I can provide to them. Keep up the great work guys!
