We were called to switch from century link. They quoted us a price of $21 per month, a savings of 50% over what we had. However, we get the bill and by the time they add all the charges we are up to $36.75, hardly worth switching for a couple of dollars. DISAPPOINTED.

Thank you! Thank you PeoplesHost!! After the webhost I had been working with for over 13 years changed ownership my websites would no longer work and I had no support from my old host that was worth anything. I tried several other webhosts that were “okay” but the support and responsiveness of PeoplesHost was heads and shoulders above the others. I...

A2 Hosting has always been very understanding and receptive to my needs. Their Customer Service is by far the best there is in the WebHosting business. I will look no further than A2 for any and all of my future Hosting needs.

It took about a week to get feedback on a refund. And their system is fraudulent. Cheap isn't always good at all. I greatly regret this. I am going to post atleast 500 reviews everywhere online to discredit this service if they don't refund my £255 asap. Just shut down the business if you can't run it.

As a ASP.NET programmer, I have used a lot of hosting providers in the past to host my client's websites. Truly, it is quite difficult to find hosting provider that support Crystal Report.

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.
