Web hosting selection 2017
The drawback of shared hosting is that if the hosting company shares too few servers between too many clients, then your site could become dramatically slow. This can be acceptable to some level if your primary concern is price. However, studies have shown that if your home page takes more than 10 seconds to load, visitors will start to abandon your site. On this top 10, we restricted our selection to companies capable of delivering professional speed & quality hosting services.
Our process for selecting, evaluating and ranking web hosting companies and their offers includes:
– We have reviewed all well known web hosting companies as well as the ones suggested by our users. Please use our feedback form to submit your own suggestions.
Popularity – We have reviewed all the web hosting companies frequently used by many different users.
– For our web hosting reviews, we set up private test sites in order to verify the specs beyond the ads. In many instances we also have public hosting test sites (you’ll find them in each review), where you can also check for yourself how responsive the host is while browsing through a typical modern blog/CMS site.
Reliability & uptime
– No host is really 99.99% perfect here. However, all hosts rated 4 stars or more are in the top performers regarding uptime.
– Many hosts are loaded with features you don’t need. In other cases you may need something very specific or advanced that only a few hosts will offer (SSH access for example). All hosts on this page have the standard features you expect from a modern web hosting company: PHP, Perl, MySQL, control panel and email, all that on your own domain, of course.
Web Hosting Support
– This is tricky to evaluate. Because the quality of support sometimes varies from one support representative to the next, we kindly ask you to share your experience in the comments section for your host. Unfortunately this also attracts fake comments (sometimes from competitors, sometimes from the hosts themselves).
