I have been with WebHostingPad since 2008 and have been very happy with them. There have been a few instances where I got jammed up with tech issues and they worked diligently to help me. In the past few days I experienced a problem that crashed one of my sites, and that was because of something I did incorrectly. While their first tier of support ...

I've hosted my site on winhost for 2 years They flagged the account as unusual storage and the application just stopped to write logs. 10% of requests failed with 500 error, including innocent requests that did nothing and they didn't bother to investigate saying that it's a development error. The support is fast and absolutely unuseful. Cons...

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.
