I found Dialwebhosting on Hostadvice reviews platform and saw that they have all positive reviews about their service. I decide to go with their service and after using their services to 6 months, I realise that why they have all positive reviews on Hostadvice. They are very good in their service and customer support is their first priority.

Completely shocking. Poor customer service. You pay money expecting a good service and they speak to you on the phone like dirt and don't know what they are doing! Suspended my account for no reason which affected my work. Too much to go into but I'm sure this company will definitely go bust in the near future.

Please beware. Don’t register your website here. They sell your number to website builders and then you get back to back calls throughout the day from call centres. When I called godaddy support, they asked me to purchase Rs.130 privacy settings! So now I have to buy my privacy settings so that my phone is not flooded with useless offers? What the ...

Good servers but the support is ridiculously poor. Don't expect to get any response from support in under 3 days. When Ausweb owned the Australian servers the service was great. Now it is just a joke.

Been with Namehero for just over a year now. Had no downtime, service and speed is excellent. I've contacted customer support on a couple of occasions, not for any problems with the service but for more general help and advice, response was prompt, polite and always within an hour. Best hosting I've used and I've been hosting sites for over 10 year...

Customer support is outstanding. Answers to questions are clearly written, and response times are fast. A2 tech support is far better than that of any other hosting service that I've used. I haven't been using this service long enough to be able to comment on long-term reliability, but so far I've had no issues.

I have two blogs hosted at dhost. Before that, i had some Direct Connect hubs. From a small hosting company with very low prices, you wouldn't expect much. In turn, I've counted more than 5 years of great services and valuable support. It's not perfect for everybody, because, for example, it doesn't have servers all around the world, but probably o...

I have started my hosting account with FastComet after reviewing all their reviews on HostAdvice. (By the way, HostAdvice is a fantastic service since the Internet is now flooded with affiliate pages masquerading as honest reviews). I moved my account from a popular web hosting company to FastComet as I was not happy with the speed of the shared...

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.
