Absolutely no crap. No sneaky ways to try and make you sign up with an unreliable provider. Just 100% real and honest web hosting reviews.
GreenGeeks is a well established web hosting company, founded back in 2008. Their headquarters is in Agoura Hills, CA and they offer shared, reseller, VPS, dedicated hosting solutions. They have three different datacenter locations to choose from: Chicago, IL, Montreal, CA, and Amsterdam, NL. Last Summer I decided to give GreenGeeks a try.
GeekStorage was founded in 2007 by Jay Higdon and Matthew Eli. I’ve been on a shared plan with them since November 2015. They also provide reseller hosting, virtual private servers and dedicated servers. With 10 years under their belts in this business GeekStorage has remained a small company but they have also continuously upgraded to newer/better hardware throughout. In the two years that I’ve been with them all in all things have gone smoothly.
MightWeb is a small web hosting company that started out in January 2015. I’ve been using a Starter package for a little over a year. Some things that have really stood out for me with MightWeb are their transparency and high standards for quality of service.
VeeroTech has been around since 2010 and offers shared, reseller and VPS hosting. They are based out of Raleigh, North Carolina and have had three different names through the years. Their original name was VopaHost, then in late-2012 it was changed to LiquiLayer, and finally they have been VeeroTech ever since mid-2013. They have a very solid reputation in web hosting/webmaster circles and after waiting way too long I finally signed up with Veerotech in late November 2015 (SSD Starter Plan).
Squidix is based out of Indianapolis, Indiana and they started providing web hosting services back in 2010. I signed up for a 10GB shared hosting plan with Squidix in July of 2015. They also offer reseller hosting, semi-dedicated hosting, virtual private servers, and dedicated server as well as web design and development services. Right from the start I was impressed with Squidix because I requested a full cPanel backup to be restored on my new account and 5 minutes later it was done! Since then in the year I’ve been with them I haven’t faced any problems except for some downtime in late December when Linode (datacenter where my hosting account is) was facing DDoS attacks. Overall Squidix has been a great web host that I continue to trust.
HostWithLove began providing shared and reseller web hosting services back in 2012. Today they have 9 different server locations spread out all over the world. It’s been just over a year (3/27/15) since I signed up with HostWithLove and I have been happy enough with them to renew my S1 shared hosting plan for another year.
BulwarkHost started out offering shared hosting plans in 2013 and added reseller hosting plans in early 2015. Back when I started using them they weren’t that well known outside of web hosting/webmaster forums. Since then I’ve noticed them being mentioned more and more, so word about BulwarkHost has been getting out. I’ve been using their shared hosting “Starter Plan” for nine months and enough time has past where I can say that their hosting operation is worth recommending.
HawkHost is a Canadian web hosting company that started out in 2004 providing shared hosting plans. Ten plus years later they now offer reseller, semi-dedicated, and virtual private servers and have five different server locations: Dallas, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, and Singapore. I’ve been using HawkHost’s shared hosting for over three years now (since April 2012) so this review is over due. HawkHost has reasonable prices and the quality of their service is worth well more than the low rates they charge.
InMotion Hosting is one of the big guys in the hosting world. Usually I have found this to be a negative more than a positive. However in InMotion’s case they are one of the good big guys. They have fast loading speeds and an in-house solid staff that overall knows what they are doing. If you are looking for a hosting provider that has been in the business for a long time that hasn’t been sold to EIG and most likely never will be, definitely consider using InMotion Hosting.
A2 Hosting is based out of Michigan and has been in the web hosting business since 2003. I started using A2 Hosting almost a year ago in March 2014. I created a hefty WordPress site, using a premium theme, that wasn’t loading very well on my DowntownHost plan. After reading some recommendations about A2 Hosting’s performance and speed, I opted for their Prime+SDD shared hosting account. It turns out that I made a great decision and here’s why.
