Been trying to get in touch with the Abuse Team for a week now regarding a very urgent issue to be fixed. All our e-mails arrive as Spam to our customers and are losing many booking opportunities due to this as well as having to explain to every supplier to check their spam inbox to get our orders and files sent to them. I haven't had any reply fro...

I'm not a technical person and Siteground helped me via livechat (which took all of 2 seconds waiting time) to fix an email linking problem I was having. It was done in no time (for them, ha ha). It was wonderful to be able to talk to someone immediately, who fixed a problem immediately. Well done!

I started using this service at the end of November 2015. I had no problems for two months. In February I began experiencing frequent down time which slowly progressed and became more frequent. Now it is nearly May and my service is down more often than not. The company offers a ridiculous 99% up time guarantee. Basically what they are offering is ...

We have tried many hosting providers before ending up at Miss Hosting, they have been fantastic. The support answers right away and are always super friendly and helpful. And they even moved all of our email accounts and the website when we first signed up. I recommend Miss Hosting to everyone!

Moreover, they pointed out there was a syntax error in .htaccess and gave me correct suggestion. Truly appreciate their quick support, which is available whenever you need.

How we score hosting services

earphones with microphone

Support

No matter how superbly built your website is, something will eventually go wrong. That’s when support really comes in handy.

We test out all the support options a host provides—by phone, live chat, tickets, etc. We then present our findings to you clearly and concisely. Does the service tend to frustrate customers with long waits? We’ll let you know. Are they U.S. based or not? Again, we’ll have the answer. And most importantly, we’ll let you know if they can actually fix your problem!

More

icon-large-features

Features

We will detail the features each hosting company offers, tell you if they are good or not, and if the company actually provides what they offer.

No feature is left unturned: from bandwidth capabilities, email accounts, website builders, even shopping carts—we research all the features of each web host. Drop by Host Tracer whenever you need a quick glance over all the best known hosts and which features each one offers.

More

icon-large-pricing

Pricing

The sticker price doesn’t tell the full story. We do the homework so you don’t have to—then give you the straight story.

We help you understand all the factors that go into pricing: things like startup costs, renewal fees, add-on prices, hidden fees, discount possibilities, and whether or not the host company truly offers a money-back guarantee.

More

icon-large-reliability

Reliability

Your web host must be reliable. If it’s not, your business could lose thousands of dollars.

Error pages cause frustration in your visitors and chase them away. That’s why we look beyond the uptime percentages a host claims by running tests to look into user feedback so that you’ll get a well-rounded, dependable idea of how reliable a host actually is. You can count on us to do the dirty work

More

icon-large-speed

Speed

Practically every web host claims to have fast speeds for their customers. But are they telling you the truth?

We test the speed of every web host we review. Nobody has time to check host speeds so we do it for you. You will get the results in each review so you can include speed in your web host decision process.

More

icon-large-userfr

User Friendliness

We check how easy (or difficult) it is to set up your hosting account with each web host. Because going live fast & easy is the most important thing.

For starters, do they offer the typical cPanel you are mostly familiar with? Or does the web host offer something less familiar? How easily can you implement the common tools? We will include a user friendly focus with every single review. That’s our way of being user friendly…we cover all the bases for you.
