I have used many other companies hosting and servers for my business projects and for reselling. But every where i got poor support no one is providing fast support and delivery of dedicated server time is also too long. Hostmalabar made me happy in this case. I have bought 12 Dedicated servers of 32GB RAM. And they delivered the 12 servers with i...

I have been a customer for over 3 years now. I can see that this hosting company is turning to a fraud company. One day you register and pay what they satate a VPS price, Next day will close it and try to charge you more as a managed service. For example today you order a VPS for $10 and the next day it will be closed if you don't pay another $40. ...

I've been using OnraHost for about 7 or 8 months now. I started on one re-seller package, eventually two. Since the beginning of my time with OnraHost until mid September I had 100% up time. Recently there were some DDoS troubles and I've upgraded to a new location on a VPS. Since being on the VPS my up-time has gone back to 100% and they were a...

I've been 1and1 customer for more than 10 years. I haven't been thrilled with them but they served the purpose I needed. Today I tried to add more features and couldn't figure it out. Their control panel is not intuitive at all. I called customer service and got some guy who acted like he couldn't care less if he helped me or not. I told him to can...

I'll admit, for the price per month, when I signed up with JVM Host I expected support that would be second-rate and lots of waiting around for resolutions. Every time I've opened a ticket, the response has been quick, professional, and expressing a true willingness to help (especially when the issue has been of my own doing or not understanding so...

The service provided by Hostripples is by far the best I have received from a web hosting provider. The unlimited hosting plan they provide is second to none. I've tried a number of providers previously and they all seem to have a catch somewhere along the line. I've yet to find a catch with this provider. I had a relatively small issue with ...

The DDos Protection is pretty bad because all it does it block all connections (even legit ones). Also my Server is disconnecting alot (for several minutes if not hours). I dissuade everyone from hosting at OVH if you have a serious business.

I've been with Lunarpages since 2004 and until now I've been very happy with them. No problems at all, I just paid the bill and ran my site. But this year they've been hitting me with "high resource usage" complaints and my site is nothing but static HTML pages, it uses no server resources whatsoever. I am getting fed up with these complaints and f...

Not being a web person, I just managed to jam together a page. Somehow I lucked into Titanic Host and they took it from there. They responded all my questions and solved all the problems. Tech support was ALWAYS available, always knowledgeable and always nice.

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.
