In 2003, a small group of IT professionals got together to form SiteGround as an alternative to using the hosts that they had encountered as regular customers in the marketplace. SiteGround is a privately-owned company.
Company and Services
SiteGround has two offices in the US: in Humble, Texas and in New York City. Its European offices are in Sofia, Bulgaria. SiteGround mainly provides web hosting for individuals and small business and looks after somewhere in the region of 150,000 sites.
SiteGround offers Linux-based shared, VPS and dedicated web hosting packages, as well as reseller hosting. It also offers e-commerce solutions, for those looking...
Siteground is truly a genuine hosting site. 100% dedicated & INFORMATIVE customer service who assists me with all my questions & concerns with the fastest turn around time I can recall from ANY company.... - by Tifase Somadhi
Arvixe is a web hosting company which offers a range of services from shared hosting through to dedicated hosting. It does not seem to specialise in just one area like many other companies do, preferring to keep its options open.
The company was formed in San Luis Obispo, USA in 2003. It is a privately held limited liability corporation and hosts a variety of websites from around the world, from personal sites through to sites for enterprise-sized businesses. Its mission is to serve as a complete hosting resource to clients and provide reliable and high quality services and support.
in brief, i'm satisfied, good prices, good live chat service, quick response , i think this host is suitable for every one. ... - by Hamdy mohamed
Web Hosting Hub Reviews
WebHostingHub specialises in quality shared web hosting and seems keen to attract small businesses to their service. The company were formed in 2001 with a mission to strive towards better provision, operational excellence and state-of-the-art green technology. WebHostingHub is based in Virginia Beach in the USA and are 100% USA-based, although there is little available information regarding who owns the company.
Whilst WebHostingHub’s services are pretty standard, they also provide additional services geared towards optimising their customers’ websites. The company is keen to attract people and businesses that are relatively new to the web and want to get off...
I've been with them for over 2 years and whenever I need help, they are there. It get's fixed by someone who is personable, polite and knowledgeable (because I don't know much in this area). The best thing is that they point out some ideas to improve your situation which are not about your problem. It leaves you with feeling safe and confident. Thanks.... - by Judy Banks
BlueHost are known for two primary hosting plans (low cost shared hosting and reseller hosting), plus domain registrations. Founded in 2003 and based in an impressive 50,000 square foot head office, CEO Matt Heaton was in-post for eight years and oversaw much of the firm’s development, both in terms of the business and the technical infrastructure. He recently handed over the top job to Dan Handy, the former COO, in order to concentrate on development.
BlueHost is part of a family that also includes FastDomain and HostMonster, founded in 2005 and 2006 respectively. The group of companies have now...
BlueHost is one of the better hosting companies I have tried and here a couple of reasons why I think that. For the low price of 4.95 you can get unlimited domain hosting, Storage, File Transfer, and E-mail Accounts. This makes it great for a small business which needs plenty of all of those. They say they have 24/7 support but for me it took a very long time to start chatting. You should note that the price 4.95 is only for the first term and after that the price is going to go up depending... - by Srikanth Tamati
A2 Hosting Reviews
A2 Hosting Introduction
A2 Hosting is a web hosting provider which focuses on providing hosting ‘by developers, for developers’. Originally named Iniquinet in August 2001, it was renamed in 2003 and appears to be privately owned. The company is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan (hence the ‘A2’ name). Its data centre is close by.
A2 Hosting Hosting Plans
A2 Hosting isn’t a normal shared hosting provider. For example, it provides multiple versions of PHP with an easy-to-use version switcher. The company’s also very keen to promote its green credentials: it has partnered with Carbonfund.org and promotes remote working, recycling and car sharing.
My website was hosted by a company that I had many issues with. A2 was recommended to me and I contacted the company and since switching a couple of years ago, I have not had one issue with my website. In fact, the first time I spoke to A2 when setting up my website, I found them to be very helpful, knowledgeable and concerned to assure that my website looked and performed as needed. The pricing they offer also made a huge difference when selecting a web hosting company. Definitely give A2 a look, you won't... - by David Santaspirt
iPage is a web hosting company that specialises in shared hosting plans. They offer a range of freebies and bonuses on signup, and an unusual ‘Anytime’ money-back guarantee. Both of these seem to be their specialist area, along with shared web hosting.
The company have been providing website hosting since 1998, and they currently have one and a half million domains on their books with more than a million websites hosted on their servers. They’re US-based but have customers in 150 countries and have six offices worldwide (although they’re not very clear on where these offices are located).
Originally founded by...
We have used an IPage website for almost two years and really love how easy it is to use. Set-up is a snap and changes are easy to make. We have used many of the design feature options and like the options available. We get compliments on the site all the time and are very happy with our site. No complaints here!... - by Amy Wasson
GreenGeeks specialises in shared web hosting and claims to be the world’s number one green energy web hosting company. The company was founded in 2006 with a goal to become the best green energy web hosting company in the industry.
Whilst GreenGeeks is relatively new, founder and CEO, Trey Gardner, has worked in the industry for nearly 15 years with companies such as iPowerWeb and Lunarpages. After discovering that the web hosting industry is on track to become one of the world’s biggest contributors to pollution, he decided to form GreenGeeks.
GreenGeeks started by offering shared web hosting services...
After carefully studying the reviews on this, and other sites, I decided to bite the bullet and switch to GreenGeeks from my prior host, ixWebHosting.com. My previous host provided a much less intuitive interface\control panel, and less competitive pricing. After about 2 months, unfortunately, I have been met with a great deal of grief and disappointment. In short, it has been a nightmare and I am now searching for a new host, but feel frustrated that perhaps I cannot trust the reviews. First, the positive. Signing up was a breeze, and they moved my wordpress site for me, which saved... - by Adam Ziegler
JustHost is a budget web hosting provider that concentrates on shared hosting plans and reseller hosting. The company offer generous discounts on sign-up and a notable ‘Anytime’ money back guarantee.
JustHost was founded in 2008; it was originally part of the Just Develop It group of companies founded by Chris Phillips, a UK entrepreneur who previously developed and sold another hosting company, Dot5. True to form, Phillips sold JustHost to the US-based Endurance International Group. That’s the same company that own BlueHost and dozens of other web hosting companies. JustHost now has headquarters in the US, the UK and Australia,...
I have had 100+ hours of my own work invested in a news site I foolishly decided to host with them - the unlimited features they were offering for a reasonable price seemed too good to be true. Don't fall for the ‘Anytime’ money back guarantee, it's a joke. Until the site is small and has limited traffic, things will generally go okay. Once the site gains some momentum, they suspend your account out of the blue claiming that it uses too much of their resources. Server downtimes are getting more and more frequent. If anything goes wrong, you are... - by Kata Deak
Site5 was founded in 1998 and focuses on providing hosting built for designers and developers and their clients. They provide a custom backend control panel called Backstage which allows their clients to jump from account to account easily and create additional users with specific security roles.
The company runs with a 100% remote team, and has 100+ employees spread out around the world - just like their 50,000+ client base.
They also offer their clients the choice of 19+ locations around the world to choose for shared web hosting, reseller hosting, and managed and unmanaged VPS. This gives a slight...
We know the questions that all we ask when we are just looking for a new hosting provider, before we choose site5.com we check the speed of their servers (ping, load impact, reviews, performance, network that they use with other providers) and site5 was top on our test so we decide to migrate our customers with a Reseller Webhost account that with have with them since 2010. (Almost three years on this october). And look my face its smiling! We also have more than 10 years of experience using different webhosting companies and site5 at this moment its one of... - by Alejandro Flores
InMotion Hosting Reviews
InMotion Hosting Introduction
InMotion Hosting offers a broad range of services, from three different shared hosting hosting plans to VPS through to dedicated hosting. The company ethos is to provide a first-class service from well-trained staff without cutting corners on support or overselling server space.
Getting good response speed is a big selling point. As such, their packages are mainly aimed at business and corporate users - people who can afford to pay a little more for reliability and support.
InMotion Hosting was founded in 2001 and is employee-owned. The company has a data centre in downtown Los Angeles and a...
I wanted to pass along a thanks and job well done for Muhammad A. in his helping me with my technical issues. Not only was the design team great to work with in building the site, tech support has been excellent in answering my questions as I expand and work with the site. ... - by Tere North
WebHostingBuzz is a privately-owned hosting company that serve customers around the US and Europe. The company was founded in 2002 in the US and initially began life as a reseller for another large web hosting company. Since then, WebHostingBuzz has been able to grow its business beyond the reseller model and into its own independent hosting business, going on to launch its European brand in 2009.
WebHostingBuzz offers a wide range of hosting services, from shared hosting to dedicated servers. Windows and cloud hosting is not yet available through the company.
It’s worth noting that there are two WebHostingBuzz sites,...
I am running a small business and have a website where I advertise my services and was looking for a cheap yet reliable host for it. I chose WebHostingBuzz over other hosts because of their affordable prices back in 2010 and I have never regretted my choice since then. I am not very tech savvy and was looking for something easy to use that does not require much time to learn my way around the service. I was given access to the control panel and it had tools to help me build my website, to my surprize, it was... - by Kate Campbell
HostGator offer a broad range of services, but they’re undoubtedly best known for their well-priced shared hosting plans. They offer three shared hosting services - Hatchling, Baby and Business - and each one steps up the service options and support provision. In addition, HostGator offer reseller plans, VPS hosting and dedicated servers, as well as an affiliate programme.
HostGator is a private company. The current CEO Brent Oxley formed the company while he was at university in 2002. Now, HostGator host more than 8 million domains for 400,000 customers in over 200 countries. Originally based in Florida, HostGator’s rapid growth...
I love HostGator because is simple, affordable and it's reliable. First time found them i enjoyed the hosting plans that are flexible for anyone. Also i appreciate the support, when i asked i got an asnwer and healp me to solve the problem. One thing that i enjoyed is the Cpanel included with Softaculous included (easy install for scripts). I'm satisfied and i recommend it. As negative, there are times when servers are overcrowded, but that depends also on the hosting plan you choose.... - by Eugen Bucurescu
WP Engine Reviews
WP Engine Introduction
As a company, WP Engine is solely focused on providing WordPress hosting. Unlike more general hosts, its hosting is managed; in other words, customers are supported and assisted with WordPress, and much of the maintenance and upkeep is handled by the WP Engine team.
WP Engine is based in Austin, Texas and was co-founded by Jason Cohen and Ben Metcalfe. Metcalfe had previously worked for the BBC, developing its online blogging system. The company was founded in 2011 and turned over $1m within its first 12 months.
WP Engine Hosting Plans
WP Engine offers four WordPress hosting plans, although the Premium...
I have been a Unix/Linux systems admin for almost 25 years now and I am just baffled by your system. I have installed dozens if not hundreds of WP and Drupal sites successfully, usually completely by hand via SSH. But I have been defeated by your interface and system. I know Linux, MySql and use PHPMyAdmin all the time, so it's not as if I am a tech newbie. Your tech support is sort of like Microsoft's, the answer is technically correct, but completely useless. I REALLY urge you to re-think your interface and procedures for migration. I can see how... - by Mike Weaver
Yahoo! Web Hosting Reviews
Yahoo! Web Hosting Introduction
Founded in 1994 and now based in Sunnyvale, CA, Yahoo! is obviously extremely well established as a company. Current CEO Marissa Mayer previously worked at Google, and chairman Alfred Amoroso was formerly chair of Rovio, formerly known as Macrovision.
Yahoo! Web Hosting is a division of Yahoo!; it’s a hosting service aimed squarely at personal and small business users. Although Yahoo! bought up Geocities in 1999, it didn’t build on the service and simply closed it a decade later.
Yahoo! Web Hosting is part of the Online Channel Division within Yahoo! Inc. Previous head Rich Riley left...
I've worked with hosting companies for many years, and none have been as difficult to setup as Yahoo. Since Yahoo has some of its own rules and protocols, even scripting requirements, written by its own techs, I've found that attempting to work within their guidelines are frustrating. For novice I would never recommend Yahoo market place or for those that prefer, a specific eCommerce software. Another, thing to consider, unless, things have changed recently, is that they attempt to stir you to a third party when trying to upgrade or make changes or installs (And its not free through the... - by Darrell Colaneri-Ellis
HostMonster specialises in competitively-priced shared web hosting. The team present their services around a simple package with the option to upgrade and get additional features. The company was launched in 1996, so that makes it a well-established web hosting company compared to some newcomers.
HostMonster is an American company based in Provo, Utah. It is a sister company to BlueHost and FastDomain. Like its sister companies, HostMonster appears to have been acquired by the Endurance International Group, a huge web hosting organisation with over 2 million customers and 40 different hosting brands under one roof.
HostMonster Hosting Plans
Host Monster sucks because they lie about providing unlimited space, unlimited databases, and unlimited email accounts. On their home page they list those items as a main feature but actually on the terms of service they stipulate limits for number of mysql tables, limits on total number of files, and so every email you receive is counted as a file, so actually there is no unlimited email space. My account has been deactivated - taking all of my sites down - twice. Once because I had too many mysql tables, and the second time because One of my email accounts had... - by Andres Botero
Brain Host Introduction
Brain Host specialises in “unlimited web hosting”; typical shared hosting plans with solid tech support, unlimited resources, Cpanel and a website builder. The company’s premises are in Ohio, with the HQ located in Akron and the operations department located in Brunswick.
Founded in 2010, Brain Host is a relatively new hosting provider. It already has more than 95,000 customers. In July 2012, Brain Host appointed a new CEO, Corey Hammond. He was previously the President of the company and has been involved in its growth since day one.
Brain Host Hosting Plans
Brain Host offers three Linux hosting plans in its...
I joined Brainhost nearly 2 years ago. and initially they were very good, their support team were helpful and responded quickly. Over time I've built up the number of domains hosted with them so I HAD 6 and sadly in that time their service levels have plummeted and I am now extremely disappointed with them. In the last couple of months they have completely 'lost' all 6 of my domains and the content I had hosted on their servers, they apparently only have backups that go back 2 weeks, it took me that long to get that information out of... - by Belinda Fountaine
HostPapa is a Canadian based web hosting company with a focus on providing environmentally friendly shared web hosting. It was founded in Oakville with a goal to provide fully-featured web hosting packages backed up by green energy.
The privately-owned company was set up in 2006. Beyond that, company information is quite hard to come by.
HostPapa Hosting Plans
HostPapa provides Linux based web hosting via a shared hosting plan and a plan for resellers.
● The shared hosting plan provides unlimited disk space and bandwidth and the ability to host unlimited domain names with your account. The plan is priced based on...
Hostpapa wiped my entire hosting after finding one hacked file which could have been removed individually. They didn't warn me, and in fact gave me no notification. I lost a number of websites immediately, and they don't backup their servers, so they were gone for good. Their technical tools for domain management are extremely limited (can't change a nameserver without waiting on their slow support) and their attitude towards me asa customer was downright awful. You will regret choosing hostpapa as a host. Don't.... - by Mark Edmundson
Fat Cow.com Reviews
FatCow is a hosting service which appears to be entirely focused on shared hosting, although it provides a wide range of services and support to complement it. Its selling point is simple: simple hosting facilities and simple to use services, eliminating the need for technical fiddling.
There are two plans available, The Original FatCow Plan and The Minimoo. The company offers a variety of professional services which can be added on (at extra cost).
FatCow has been operating for well over 10 years now. The company was founded in 1998 in Albuquerque in the USA but it...
This company is superbly annoying and unhelpful. ADVICE GO ELSE WHERE. My site was hijacked they said that there was no issue but my files had disappeared and there was strange unknown pages sitting at my URL. Help NONE. On a previous occasion they said my links were messed up and they fixed the, Te site never worked after that. CHEAP and USELESS. ... - by Gabrielle Doyle
Midphase is an American web hosting company that specialises in shared web hosting but offers a number of other services. Located in Utah and founded in 2003, the company has grown its customer base to over 120,000 and has more than 200 employees at the time of this review.
The company has become a part of the UK2 group, known for providing web services to over one million domains across 140 countries. That gives Midphase solid backing in the industry. Notably, it shares its headquarters with WestHost and other similar hosts.
Midphase has a reputation for cheap and simple web...
I've been dealing with different Shared Hosting Providers since 1998. MidPhase was the worst in technical support which can take up to 5 hours to reply for a high priority support ticket. Their system admins changes your password every 48 hours without notifying you over email. Their online chat agents can talk with you for 90 mins without solving your problem. and if you stayed with them more than 30 days then don't ask for a refund cause they will never refund you or compansate you for the time wasted without being able to access your cPanel. I would never recommend MidPhase... - by Hashem Zahran
Network Solutions Reviews
Network Solutions Introduction
Network Solutions was founded in 1979 as a consulting company, but it has changed hands numerous times since then. For much of the 1990s, it had a monopoly on the sale of domain names, and it was only in 1998 that ICANN was formed and Network Solutions began to lose its grip on the domain name market.
Network Solutions was owned by Verisign in the early 2000s, and following that, it was acquired by several private equity firms. After two high-profile security alerts, Network Solutions was bought by Web.com in 2011 for $405 million. The company was downsized considerably...
VERY slow network. Non-standard interface. Very expensive for what you get. The people on the phone were relatively nice, but when I explained that their WordPress implementation wasn't good, they said they weren't responsible for 3rd party plugins. I'd give them an overall "ugh."... - by Greg Moreau
One.com is a web host that helps companies get a web presence with ease, providing low-cost web space and site building tools. The company claims more than 950,000 members worldwide, so it’s a truly massive web host, and it offers multi-lingual support - a rarity in the web hosting industry.
Founded in 2002, One.com is a Danish company founded by Jacob Jensen. It also has a presence in Dubai and offices in Germany, Holland and the UK, but its data centre is located in Denmark. The support team is busy, answering more than 90,000 tickets and calls per month, and...
i absolutely have no reason to complain. What is promised will be kept. ONLINE SUPPORT VERY FAST. So 5 stars in each column... - by Rainer Kunze
StartLogic is a sister company of iPower, a hosting provider I’ve already reviewed for this site. Like iPower, StartLogic was founded by Thomas Gorny, and was merged into the massive Endurance International Group in the same way. Since the companies are so similar, this review is intended to provide only a brief overview of its services.
StartLogic’s website is sparse, but it appears the company is still US-based. The hosting provider boasts several awards, but these all seem to predate the merger with EIG which appears to have occurred sometime around 2007. The website claims that they serve more than...
The worst. They took down my site, and then AFTER taking it down, told me that they had taken it down, knowing damn well I wouldn't get the email. Then they sent me deadlines, once again, to my 'taken-down' email, once again, knowing knowing damn well I wouldn't get the emails. They after destroying my files, sent me an email telling me that they were sorry, but they didn't have the space to keep my files, and 'sorry for the inconvience'. Like the other individual said, they say one thing, but always do less, far less.... - by Edward Labate
Super Green Hosting Reviews
SuperGreenHosting is a shared web hosting company owned by JustHost, who are in turn owned by Endurance International Group, a large internet services organisation that runs numerous other web hosting companies.
There is little information regarding when the service was founded, but since October 2011, JustHost became its new parent company.
Whilst the focus is on green web hosting, all of SuperGreenHosting’s plans are supplied through the JustHost site, as are their support services. We’ll run through the features of SuperGreenHosting, but please also refer to the JustHost review for more information.

Host Metro Reviews
Host Metro Introduction
Host Metro is a privately owned and managed web hosting company. The business was launched in 2003 and the management team have a combined total of over 50 years experience in the web hosting industry.
Host Metro is specialised in shared web hosting only. It has a decade of experience in this niche, so we can assume customers are in safe hands.
Host Metro Hosting Plans
The shared hosting plans from Host Metro are easy to understand. There are just two options, the Mega Max Hosting plan and the Business Max Hosting plan. The longer the length of your contract, the...
Host Metro has a cute super hero as their trademark logo. They promise really cheap services for a very great product. However, only one portion of that is actually true. There product and plans are extremely cheap. You can get hosting as low as 2 dollars a month (for the first year) and I have to say that is extremely cheap compared to other top named hosts such as dreamhost, bluehost, godaddy, and other name brands. However, due to their low price, it has a really big drawback to their services. For one, I will give a list of what... - by Nazmus Sarwar
IX Web Hosting Reviews
IX Web Hosting Introduction
IX Web Hosting is primarily a shared hosting provider, but with one important difference: its services are geared towards SEO. By providing customers with their own dedicated IP addresses, all websites are ready to accept ecommerce transactions. In addition, sites with dedicated IPs could well be given an advantage in the search engines.
Based in Columbus, Ohio in the US, the company was founded by Fathi Said who is still the CEO. Said claimed the company hosted more than a quarter of a million websites in 2007, so five years on, it’s likely that they host considerably more....
I've been with IX Web Hosting since 2004. At the time and even for the last 8 years they have been great. Every once in a while my plan would gain more space (now unlimited), and bandwidth. Which made me as a customer appreciate the service even more. Now the past year, they had killed off two of my domains. What used to be "free" three domain names included is no longer the case. It was only free for the first year, that policy had changed, Not sure exactly when but I never was concerned with the domains until this... - by Oki Dorff
Media Temple Reviews
Media Temple Introduction
Media Temple is a US-based web hosting organisation that has been in the industry for nearly 15 years. Founded in 1998, the company have amassed over 125,000 customers and provided services to website owners running over 1.5 million websites. Media Temple can boast having hosted a variety of businesses, from creative professionals and small companies and organisations through to large clients such as Starbucks, Adidas and Toyota.
Visit the Media Temple homepage and you would be forgiven for thinking that the company is keen to promote affiliate program as its business model. However, the company does offer a range...
WestHost is a web hosting company aimed at business users. It offers low-cost shared hosting, cloud hosting and dedicated servers, and all services appear to be targeted at professionals rather than hobbyist users.
The company was set up in 1998 and was acquired by UK2 in 2008. It’s part of Hosting Services, Inc, and shares its headquarters in Utah with AN Hosting and Midphase. Notably, half of its employees are multi-lingual, and half have more than 5 years’ experience in the IT industry.

Been with WestHost for years. Their service has declined. Uptime is poor, customer service is incredibly poor. In Sept. of 2013 they suffered a security breach. The vague email I got said a small number of accounts were affected, they had locked me out of my account, and they were bringing on extra staff for customer service. It's now 48 hours later. My support ticket is 36 hours old. Chat is unresponsive. Current hold time is about an hour -- that's an improvement since all day their phone line wasn't picking up. It appears the breach was huge. *If* they... - by Brad Johnson
Go Daddy Introduction
Go Daddy’s primary focus is domain names and domain auctions. Web hosting is offered alongside domain registrations, but the entire front page of the website (apart from the images of Go Daddy Girls) is dedicated to the registration of domains - hardly surprising, really, since they manage 53 million of them. Although domain registration is an important part of their business, we’re primarily going to look at their web hosting services.
On their website, Go Daddy claims that it’s the “largest hosting provider of secure websites” with more than 10 million customers hosting 5 million websites between them. Founded...

In terms of its target market, iPower is fairly evenly split. Its services are aimed at both business and personal users, although the low cost, the emphasis on site building tools, and lack of large capacity plans suggests that their customer base is primarily made up of personal sites and small businesses.
The company was founded in 2001 and currently has more than 700,000 customers. CEO Thomas Gorny was born in Poland and also runs a private investment company. As of 2007, iPower has been controlled through the Endurance International Group after a 2011 valuation of a reported $1 billion....
This web hosting is so problematic and it's very frustrating. They do eventually fix the issue but I have has issues with down time, no database access, and other misc problems. On more than one occasion my web forms that have been working for YEARS suddenly start giving me errors and they tell me that it must be a problem with my script. Then the next day it works fine again with no explanation from them. I have been regularly looking for another company with reliable and affordable windows hosting but all of them have many bad reviews... - by Rich Orde
UK2.net is one of the largest UK-based web hosting companies, offering a wide variety of hosting packages and service. Founded in 1998, UK2.net has since grown into a large organisation. It’s a core component of the UK2 Group which also owns several other web hosting companies such as VPS.net, Dotable, Reseller.biz and more.
UK2.net does not have a specific focus when it comes to web hosting. In its 14 years of existence, the company has sold over a million domain names, hosted thousands of websites and managed dedicated servers for customers all over the world.

UK2 is like something nasty stuck to the bottom of your shoe you can't get rid of. I had used them for a number of years to host a domain which I stopped using a couple of years ago. I noticed they were still billing me for various services....that was not their fault. I then tied to cancel and actually received an email from them confirming all services had been cancelled. Then I get billed again. When I contacted them they told me I had only cancelled webdiversion and not the hosting, despite thir email... - by J Adams
GlowHost is a private company that was founded in 2002.
Today, the company trades under the company name of GlowHost.com with Matt Lundstrom as President.
The mailing address is GlowHost.com, Inc, PO Box 6361, Stuart, Florida 34997.
GlowHost has approximately 10 staff members. Its data centres are based in Atlanta, Georgia.
GlowHost uses a GNAX data centre. GNAX has a lot of backup systems in place to protect these servers. GlowHost uses multi-homed bandwidth (as opposed to single-homed), meaning that the networks and connection speeds are fast and reliable. Their choice of data centre means they have access to enough major fiber...
I needed an inexpensive, yet reliable host for my new project. I did some research by googling around and finally decided I would contact GlowHost via telephone after reading their reviews and what others were saying about them. I waited approximately 30 seconds before being connected to a sales agent. I had a list of questions as long as my arm waiting for him. But as fast as I read them off, he answered them completely and without hesitation. That pretty much sold me on them. To date, I'm happy with the performance and reliability of the service.

123-Reg is a UK based web hosting company and as the name suggests, it’s focused on offering cheap domain names. Despite this, the company does offer a wide range of web hosting plans, including email hosting, cloud hosting, VPS and dedicated hosting.
123-Reg was founded in 2000, but arise a part of the Webfusion group, a larger company which has been around since 1997. Webfusion is in turn a part of the Host Europe Group which claims to be the largest privately owned hosting company in Europe. The Host Europe Group also owns Heart Internet, Domain Monster, RedCoruna and DonHost,...
i've mixed feelings about 123-reg. the majority of my experiences with them have been good. i have a VPS with them and it's reliable with plenty of processing power, RAM and bandwidth...the price is competitive too. i also use them to register domains. their DNS management has improved mightily over the years. now SPF, CNAME and all the usual suspects are very easy to setup. my main beef is with their support (as others have mentioned, here). i have always got my problems resolved but their team sometimes need things spelled out for them repeatedly. to sum up...an excellent hosting company if... - by pete reilly

PowWeb was founded in 1999, but like many similar companies, it has now been acquired by the Endurance International Group - the same company that run iPage, iPower and many other shared web hosting companies. According to the PowWeb Migration website, the acquisition appears to have taken place in early 2006.
Currently the company offers one shared hosting plan and appears to be US-based. Much of the site is very similar in look and feel to other EIG-owned hosting company sites, with small businesses and individuals being their primary target market. Pricing is competitive, with a couple of caveats.
they keep saying they had no problem bringing my issue whatever it is but on my end the issue is still there. like my ftp they had no problem bringing it up but i do and my backup and restore they have no problem doing it but i keep telling them it's not working on my end. also my stats wouldn't update they said they had no problem updating them but i did took 2 days for them to fix the problem now its been a week and my site is still not working properly. thinking about going to go... - by sandra zalipski

Web.com’s large network of brands includes Network Solutions, Register.com, 1ShoppingCart.com and more. Whilst its main objective is to help small businesses succeed online with custom made websites, it does offer hosting as well, but this is by no means a primary service.

LiquidWeb is a hosting company focusing on enterprise and corporate website hosting services. Although the company does offer shared hosting, it’s at a fairly high price point, and it’s clearly not their primary product.

LiquidWeb is privately owned and has been in business since 1997. It currently owns and manages three data centres, all based in Lansing, MI in the US, and it has an additional office in Scottsdale, AZ. With just 20,000 clients, the company is far smaller than many of the...

HostClear is a professional web hosting company with a focus on reseller hosting, although they also offer regular shared hosting. Like many other web hosting companies such as SuperGreenHosting, HostClear is managed by JustHost, which is, in turn, owned by the US-based Endurance International Group.
Other than JustHost being the home of HostClear, I found very few other details about the company. It may be that it is just another portal for JustHost: any links I clicked on in HostClear took me right to the JustHost site.
I’ll summarise the features this company provides, but please also refer to...
DreamHost are known for low-cost shared web hosting and domains, but also offer VPS and dedicated services.
At the time of writing this review, DreamHost are about to launch cloud storage. However, they do already have a limited personal cloud storage service called Files Forever. This allows content producers to host files on DreamHost’s servers for a one-off fee. Producers can optionally charge for downloads. To try Files Forever, you need to be a DreamHost customer.
Based in Brea, California, west of Los Angeles, DreamHost launched in 1997, so it has a long and proven track record. It’s owned by...
Two reasons Dreamhost is a poor service that I don't recommend. 1. Dreamhost has been out of service twice during the day when we needed it the most. That's not much on a percentage basis but it's unreliable enough that I cannot recommend it to anyone. 2. Very slow. While every other page loads in 1 second, ours takes 10-20. That's completely unacceptable and it causes us to lose visitors. This is the case even though we switched to a dedicated server at dreamhost. I do not recommend. ... - by Dave Snyder

I've been with Netfirms for ten years. They used to be awesome. With domain registration, they used to provide free WhoIs privacy and a great file manager. Technical support was fast and friendly.

As far as technical services go Dot5 hosting is just fine but after repeated requests to cancel services with the company, they continued to charge my credit card. I had to call them and e-mail them many times to get charges reversed and for some reason it was impossible for them to reimburse the full amount that was charged to my credit card. Fully cutting the cord with this company took over a year. Whatever you do, do not allow Dot5 hosting to auto renew charges on your credit card. ... - by Ryan Radchenko

Clearly they are not of the mind that these website represent our businesses and income. These guys really suck...please avoid them at all costs.... - by Aaron Chan
Unlike many of the web hosting providers we’ve reviewed, Lunarpages doesn’t place any emphasis at all on shared hosting (although it does offer it). Instead, Lunarpages concentrates on high-spec business web hosting with a strong commitment to uptime and reliability.

The company has 10 separate arms located in Europe and North America, each with its own website and hosting plans. The company is truly massive, so for the purposes of this review, I will focus on...
I have had a number of unfortunate experiences with 1and1 - after complaining about being 'sold' a website service without being consulted and when I already had a website we were deprived of our website hosting for 4 days due to an unexplained 'technical error'. When looking to gain extra storage we were sold an extra service that needed to have outlooked configured but this resulted losing the use of outlook and still not being able to access the larger storage. The front line technical support are desperately polite and follow the manuals very effectively but this seemingly doesn't work and... - by Gavin Quinn

My experience with HostDime: Massive amounts of downtime on my server, reluctance of support to change to a different server, mistakes by customer service and tech support, one hand not knowing what the other is doing, slow response and complete failure to reply to tickets. and this was for very basic issues. I just cancelled my account. Yeah, the prices are good for what they promise - so I give them a 5 for features.

Jumpline believes that one of the reasons for its success is the quality of its technical infrastructure....
I'll admit right up front that I can't offer a comparison to other similar services. I've been with Jumpline about fifteen years. I've had very few problems with them. A couple of times, they made changes to my plan without notifying me, There have been technical support issues that they won't help me with, but it is their policy with their VDS products that they can't support all of the things they allow you to do with hit. I actually think that is reasonable, since they can't possibly be expected to support other vendor's products beyond simple settings recommendations. Still,... - by Stephen Rex Goode

They are great hosts with great prices.

A simple email explaining their cause and possible effects would be extremely helpful in having webmasters ready to go if their site is down or needs to be adjusted based on updates or new settings. You finding out from clients that your website is down and not by the host is troubling. 3) They don't answer their phones.... - by Paul

PoundHost itself is run from the offices of Pulsant Ltd in Maidenhead. Pulsant supplies data centre facilities to many Dada Group brands, particularly those operating...

I have been using TSOhost for over a year now. The reason I went with them was because I read a review about somebody using cloud hosting. I started looking into cloud hosting for Wordpress and found that the ultimate package can be used on 100 Wordpress websites with no problems or slowness. The pricing was good so I gave it a go and so far everything has been great. The sites load very fast, the support is always very helpful and the control panel is very easy to use.

I've been with Atlantic.net for 4 months on one of their cloud hosting cPanel plans. The price is excellent for cloud hosting at $18/month, however their 100% uptime guarantee is completely false. My server has gone down about five times a month for an average of about 8 hours each month. Overall, this is better than my shared hosting account with Site5. However, the downtime could have been much worse, because each time my site went down, I either had to log into the server through SSH and restart it; or, I had to initiate a conversation with their online... - by Ryan Fait

Layeredtech's service has completely gone down the drain. I have been having trouble with them for the last three months ignoring service tickets. The servicing mostly came from lazy software updates to the server that I was not notified of, until I noticed problems. One day almost all the server's services were halted because someone needed to click "ACCEPT" on a user license agreement. Down for almost 12 hours. Seriously? This month I noticed an issue and asked someone to look at it. I got a dismissive reply that did not explain it. I opened another ticket when the problem... - by Christian Davis

There appears to be little information on their site regarding who owns it. WebHostingPad’s corporate office is based in Rolling Meadows, IL in the US and its servers in Chicago,IL.
Interestingly, there are some references to WebHostingPad making moves into the web hosting industry in China.

After having unlimited hosting service for 5 years, in the last year they started placing restrictions on our website. Forcing us to either go with a VPN or reduce the add ons on our forum. Unwilling to work with us, we found a new host. By their guidelines we submitted a cancellation request 3 days before account renewal expiration. In the middle of a current file download they deleted our account. So now we have to use data a week old. Of course this is backups we made, not our host. All new data, all new members are gone because... - by Erik Deiber

ServInt Internet Services was founded in 1995 by Reed Caldwell, who at the time was an undergraduate.

Today it has thousands of customers in some 60 countries, and the company is still privately owned, with Caldwell as CEO.
Company and Services

Been with these guys over 5 years, with both VPS and dedicated servers. They offer in my opinion the best value for dedicated or vps servers based on that they give you daily offsite backups which most like liquidweb charge extra for, and their support almost always gets on tickets in under 20 minutes. Most of their support techs are of very high quality. I never feel I'm being outsourced to India for support.... - by Kevin Javitz
The origins of Rackspace Hosting go back to 1996 when Dirk Elmehof and Pat Condon started a company providing mainly web-based applications.

The Positive Internet Company Reviews
Good reliable hosting. Not particularly cheap but then that's the point. It's a higher level of service than the stack 'em high, sell 'em cheap approach. Feature wise there isn't much of a control panel so you'll need to be prepared to install stuff yourself. Support is responsive and helpful. Overall I'm really pleased with them and if a site grows from cheaper reseller hosting I'll move it on to Positive's z-hosting package.... - by Fraser Edwards

Carpathia Hosting Reviews
The up-time and hosting capabilities of Carparthia are good and we have no complaints regarding these services. However, if you have an issue that is outside of their process, they will avoid or ignore you completely. They consistently quote, and hide behind, company policy or process even when they agree with you that your issue doesn't fit into their "system". As a result, customer service is terrible with little to no real escalation. Passing your call onto a colleague for escalation with no real authority to resolve problems doesn't count in my books. My recommendation is, avoid this one...there are... - by Simon

JaguarPC is a privately owned web hosting company based in Colorado, USA. The company was founded in 1998 and grew to include subsidiary businesses such as Aletia Hosting, Devpond Software and Dedicatedspace.com, although it is not clear whether these businesses are still in operation.

I've been an on and off customer of JaguarPC for the last couple of years ranging from VPS and web hosting. I've always liked them and used them for comfort reasons. Meaning that I went back because I knew how they worked and was familiar and kept hearing bad reviews about other companies I wanted to use. My first issue was their registrar in general. They have two methods to registration before you could register through their other name which is something like altaenic and if you had a problem with nameservers their customer support via ticket system would tell you... - by Jacob Horton

Clook Internet Introduction
Clook Internet is a UK-based hosting company located in Preston and founded in May 2002. Chris James, the company’s managing director, owns parent company Sub 6 Limited. Sister companies include Clook Internet USA and ClookCDN.
Clook Internet has a clear UK focus, and its website’s muted colour scheme suggests that the company aims to attract small businesses and professional users. However, its shared hosting is also marketed at individuals who need low-cost web space.

As a small, self employed company, I rely on my web presence for my business. In one fel swoop, Clook, along with Orchard Hosting, have managed to ruin this and frustrated me into writing rid review.

We were 13 year customers of Verio and they had exactly what we needed...in 2000. However their VPS systems have not evolved, nor has the administration interfaces. If you run out of memory on your VPS you will not be able to SSH in or reboot automatically. You will have to call each and every time. This can be problematic if a process gets away with you or a Wordpress plugin goes awry or hogs memory. On other hosts we have not had a problem.

One of the first things I did during my research was to call each of the hosts I was considering (Hivelocity, Softlayer [known as ThePlanet back then], iWeb, and LiquidWeb), to see who answered the phone fastest. Even back then, Hivelocity was smaller, and they answered first before any... - by Eric Gillette

They offer a 30 Day unconditional money back guarantee, 24/7/365 customer service...
I bought the basic package in Pronethosting.net after reviewing like 10-20 other web-hosting. The main reason why I chose Pronet was because it gave me in the basic plan practically unlimited (100) addon-domains for a great price (other hostings catch you to upgrade to the second plan by giving you may be 4 addon-domains.) and because it gave me SSH access (this is VERY important to work comfortable and fast for who work in linux.)

Thought I found the ideal solution free web hosting with no catches and all of the excellent reviews. There are many problems using the 000webhosting services, regular advertising pop ups being used if you have not used your control panel for a while.

You are far better off paying for a hosting service especially because there are some cheap hosting companies around. It's just not worth using these free hosting companies!... - by Chris Lewis

Unscheduled downtime is a big problem with these guys over the 4 months I was a customer.

Network suffers from wild latency swings of +/- 50ms. Packet loss averages +/- 5%. No console access to servers. Apparently they use desktop grade components without IPMI. Support is terse at best.

If you want to publish a hobby site KVC is good; if you want to use it professionally (webshop, CV etc) I advice you to go to another. ... - by Brevis Unda

HostedFX has wonderful uptime and when I was having my site hosted, I experienced no trouble - Until I needed website support. They didn't even have their online support on, and I couldn't get assistance. They have no phone numbers only "ticket" systems.

Then, 11 months later, I get an invoice I'm about to be charged for another year when I'm not even being hosted by them. Don't use this site, it's... - by Daniel Baker
