The Web.com Group was formed as a result of the merger of Web.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: WWWW) and Website Pros, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSPI).

Website Pros was founded in 1999 by Darin Brannan with a goal of becoming the largest nationwide website design and related value-add services company to the small and mid-sized market in a subscription model (SaaS). The idea was to provide these services at 1/10 the cost and time of that offered by thousands of small web design shops dominating the cottage industry. It went public in 2005.

  1. Just how trustworthy is the provider? Just about anyone can pretend to be a real web host and just be reselling someone else s products. So, look to see how long they ve been around, do they have a contact address, who owns them, are they making realistic promises on the website etc. Google is your friend.
