Multacom is another pro-oriented service provider. As you can see, they’re upfront with their offering of a full rack that’s rentable in their facility. You can also rent half a rack, a quarter of a cabinet, or even co-locate just one server in their facility. They provide a full 20 amps of power to each cabinet, initial setup, and free IPKVM and remote reboot on request.
All of us have been in a position where we were unable to find the most suitable host or even knew what kind of web hosting service we needed. We decided to take action and went on with the idea of making full, in-depth web hosting reviews about each and every hosting provider on the Internet. Furthermore, we’ve also made a lot of great website tools that we hope will you a lot. For example, enter the names of the providers you want to compare in the boxes below. We will run through some numbers, look at our and user reviews and show you the verdict which host is better than the other.
On the other hand, we loved talking to Media Temple, GlowHost, WestHost, and WebHostingHub. In particular, both GlowHost and Media Temple answered all of our questions thoroughly, taking time to ask follow-up questions, and patiently walk us through details when we inquired about upgrades. Instead of upselling us on private domain registration and dedicated IPs, James and Tristan explained who might want each service — a level of guidance perfect for people new to web hosting. Even though we spent close to 12 minutes talking to each rep, the time went quickly simply because of how friendly they were.
DreamHost has been around for 18 years, and is known for making web hosting easy. You get custom dashboard, 1-click WordPress install, automatic WordPress updates, unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth and free SSDs which makes your site 200% faster. DreamHost powers over 600,000 WordPress blogs and websites. There are no setup fees, and you also get a free domain.
The company does offer email support and ticket support, even for its least expensive plans. We did take a point off for the relatively short 14-day money-back guarantee and a slight price increase after the initial promotional period ends. That said, you can certainly set up a small, free site and get a feel for the service, with absolutely no time limit to check things out.
HostGator gained points for uptime monitoring and regular backups, along with free cPanel or Plesk. We liked that SSH is available for the more technically inclined site operators and that dedicated IP addresses could be purchased. We did take points off because it’s sometimes difficult to tell what the price is once promotional plans run their course. That said, with a generous 45-day money back guarantee, there’s a solution for almost everyone at HostGator.
All of our web hosts offer FTP access, but we went one step further and required SSH access. It’s a more secure file transfer protocol that is particularly useful for advanced technicians (if you’re a beginner and see this option, we advise leaving it alone, or asking for advice from your web host on how to use it). Of our top picks, only HostPapa doesn’t give SSH access to its customers.
Used by millions, from corner stores to Fortune 500 firms, WordPress is the world’s most popular blogging tool. Whether you’re looking for a simple blog or a full-featured website, you’ve come to the right place.
You should use web hosting that meets your budget, needs, and performance requirements. If you are using WordPress you may want to consider a WordPress hosting company such as Bluehost or WP Engine. We have listed our recommendation of the 10 best web hosting companies above.
WordPress users have the option of enhanced security and super-speed hosting on their SSD architecture for a slightly higher price. FatCow even provides a team of WordPress experts to help you out with anything you need.
If that’s the case, why do more expensive options exist? Why doesn’t Amazon get in on that action and host its website on a plan that costs just a couple o’ bucks a month? For those with mission-critical websites, how do you ensure that you’re getting a reliable web hosting provider?
Prior to our 2017 update, InMotion was one of our top picks, and it passed all of our criteria for an excellent web host this time around, too, beating out scores of other contenders. But of our four finalists, it ranks a solid fourth place. It’s the only one of our top picks to not send us an email response. And while we received all of the answers we needed from friendly phone and live chat reps, they didn’t go out of their way to help: If we had a question, they answered. If there was a natural follow-up question, they left it up to us to ask. They’re also the most expensive, and the only one that doesn’t offer any type of website building tool.

Thanks for sharing this information. Most of the hosting providers above use the Linux platform. As far as I know, only Liquidweb offers Windows as a hosting platform, but they are more focused on dedicated servers.

Update 2 (Dec 2015): I’d definitely advice against using Bluehost. They had some major outages in last few days, also according to our customer analysis, their live chat support takes at least 35-40 minutes.
1&1 Hosting provides a wide range of hosting services, along with a full e-commerce stack, domain name registration, Office 365 solutions, and online marketing programs. What sets the company apart is their first-year hosting price of less than a buck a month. This is the least expensive hosting program we’ve seen, although the price does go up after that first year.

The vast majority of our customers’ sites grow at rates well within our rules, but our abuse controls may cause a brief delay while we evaluate if expansion is appropriate.
The company’s entry-point pricing is extremely low, and while this will buy you up to three years of very low-cost hosting, do be aware that its post-promotion price will increase substantially, putting its subsequent year pricing more in line with the rest of its competitors. That said, we liked its 24-7 phone support, SSD support on some plans, and 30-day money-back guarantee.
We’ll dive into the differences between the types of hosting in a moment. As a general rule of thumb, though, the more you pay for web hosting the more ‘performance’ you’re going to get in terms of being able to handle high volumes of traffic. Here’s a chart showing the relationship between the cost and performance of the different types of hosting:
I was hosting with justhost in the past – they were so horrible that I had to move all my sites after weeks of wasted time in lip service and absolutely no fixes. I moved to hostclear and everything was fine for couple of years until justhost decided to buy out hostclear. The service immediately deteriorated – with the cpanel still not working as I am writing this I have to move again. They are not only horrible, but they also mess up decent hosts. It is so bad that it is CRIMINAL!!!
One of the oldest web hosts started in 1996, Bluehost has become the largest brand name when it comes to WordPress hosting. They are an official ‘WordPress’ recommended hosting provider.

Liquid Web is another excellent managed WordPress hosting company popular among WordPress community. They offer multiple levels of hosting plans including managed WordPress hosting, VPS, cloud sites, and dedicated hosting.
With our auto-migration feature, you can migrate your WordPress site to us with one click. If you use a custom login page or host at WordPress.com, our 24/7, award-winning support can walk you through your migration.
Cloud hosting is the same as VPS hosting, but instead of your website sitting on one VPS server, your website can automatically be scaled onto tens or hundreds of VPS servers if and when your site needs a lot more power. This might happen if, for example, you get featured in a major publication that sends millions of visitors to your site on the same day. The site then ‘downscales’ once your traffic goes back to normal.

Dedicated hosting is where you lease your own server that hosts nothing but your website. As such, you get to control and customise the server extensively to meet your needs. You can even decide which hardware you’d like installed on your server.
I have been a Bluehost Client over year’s but I left because Bluehost don’t know what is happening with your account, I had 45 account’s with you and also a Reseller account ( that you close). I think that they have so many clients that they don’t seem to care about losing you.
As always, there’s more to a given web hosting plan than meets the eye, so in this article, we try to explain the differences between your options so that you can make an informed choice as to what’s best for you and your website.
