Unlimited Email Accounts and free domains- It offers unlimited email accounts and free domains to its Shared Hosting Plans customers. On the other side, most of the other companies charge for it.

Cons of Hostwinds-

Very basic host- The website gives a lot of services, but still, it is very basic and offers no special or unique kind of service. They need to add more services to upscale their potential.

Chargeable Backups and Monitoring- The Backup and Monitoring service is not free here, customers have to pay $24 for one-year Monitoring and backups come at $36 annually.

Conclusion- No other web hosting companies give access to this much amount of perks to their customers at this cheap rate. In this case, Hostwinds is a budget-friendly and reliable web hosting company. It has goodwill in the web hosting market. But still, it is much needed for a company to upgrade their services once in a while to attract more customers.
