They are so excellent. The customer service is literally off the chain. Tech support has an answer for EVERYTHING and you never have to wait. The only thing I wish they could offer is interactive, one-on-one WordPress coaching.

I recently signed up for a vps and I verified my account with my ID of course and my phone number . After 2 days I had created a VPS but I can’t get it to connect to an RDP client! Suprising thing is that they sent me a 100 euros invoice that’s ridiculous amount compared to Google cloud ! I am lucky I am still underage so they have no j...

I can’t tell any difference from any other major hosting providers I’ve been with (quite a lot actually). I am simply delighted, specially by it’s support team, as (for now) you always end up with same guys again, which makes you feel very “at home”, besides their commitment and capabilities to solve of course. I do ha...

My company and I have been an A2 hosting customers for several years, starting with a single shared host, then moving up to Reseller hosting, and most recently to a Managed VPS plan. As a professional website development firm we know that hosting, domains, DNS, WHM and Cpanel work is multi-faceted and can become quite complicated. But at every step...

First off, they are reliable. No fuss, no muss. Secondly, they are easy to use. Third, when I have a problem or want to do something – like switch to WordPress. They are right there with me to get the changes done. I have been with them for 4 years and I am very satisfied.

I’m using Godady to host more than 5 sites on my VPS Linux hosting. It’s performing very well without slowing down any of the sites. In fact, I’m getting over 10k visitors on each blog, sometimes it may vary. Overall, it’s very good. Really enjoying their service.

I feel like MifiHost always has my back. Recently there was a problem with someone spamming my WordPress Blog site. I contacted them and They took action right away and even sent me suggestions of what I could do to reduce the chances of this happening again. MifiHost is the best hosting service I have used in the 4 plus years I have been creating ...

Myserverplanet is impressive on two counts. the price is good for shared hosting at least. what impressed me is their learned team at the customer support office. they have been good so far, right from transferring files to other niggles. I would love to see them continue their good service.

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.
