Find out what my experience is with various web hosting companies.
Planning to create a website but don't know how to make money from it?
While most review sites will recommend you tens of hosting providers they review and list on their website, I will only suggest you five. Why should I make things more complicated than they are? The following comparison table will show you the main features and pricing of the top 5 web hosting providers I use and love.
I have been hosting with InMotionHosting since 2009 and have never had any major problems with my websites. Certainly InMotion is not perfect, they also have technical problems like any other hosting provider, however the technical and support team is always focused and issues are solved quickly.
They may be more pricy and may have some limitations compared to the competition, but this allows them to not overcrowd servers, resulting in better website performance and speed. I also like InMotion hosting because they are good for beginners as well for advanced users, offering the options to easily upgrade or downgrade hosting packages.
I have been building websites since 2007. During all these years I had the chance to work with lots of different hosting providers. I have never worked for any of these companies, and not planning to. I’m a web developer, I create websites and not hosting infrastructure, however I have a clue about web hosting as well. I know that web hosting is the fundament of any website, as in case of a building, if the fundament fails, the building will fall. I know how frustrating is to work with a hosting company that has a poor support or unreliable servers. I have seen a lot and have switched hosting providers several times.
Now, as a webmaster and developer, I’m managing many websites, hosted with various hosting providers. This gives me the ability to continuously test these companies and to be up to date with the latest news.
I’m a person who things positively, and I dislike negativity in general. But why should we only talk about good and positive things, while bad things are happening every day? Why should I hide the fact that the hosting provider I use to recommend to my clients (LunarPages) has deleted all my websites and have been waiting for more than 7 days to get a reply? So on this website, I’m not getting picky with each and every host, but I will tell if a hosting company is bad, so webmasters and customers like you to find out which hosts to avoid at all cost.
After all, you don’t know me, so why should you trust me at all? Why should you believe what I say about any hosting provider? Am I recommending these companies only to make the sale and receive a commission?
As you may notice, on the top of this page I disclose the fact that I’m making money through this website and I’m affiliated with some of the companies I review. This means, if someone buys hosting service using my affiliate links, I will receive a small commission from that hosting provider. You should also note that my reviews or rankings are not based on the amount of commission I receive, these reflect my personal opinion and experience only. In fact I do not recommend some providers who are paying the highest amount, due to the fact, that they provide poor service and customer support.
You are not obligated to sign up through my affiliate links, you can access each company’s website directly to purchase the service; however if you find my website useful and want to support me paying for my web hosting and writing new guides, I highly appreciate your effort.
Back to the point: my hosting reviews are honest and truthful, I would never recommend a company that I don’t use or used before; I will never tell you about a poor hosting firm to sign up with.
If you have any questions regarding my website, or my reviews, or have any suggestion on how to make it better, or want to share you experience about a hosting company or just want to say hello, please contact me.
