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.
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.
I’ve heard about StableHost many times in the past, but I never tried them until late 2013. I was skeptical at first because everyone raved about how great they were despite being “cheap.” I thought something was fishy but I decided to give them a go anyway. Surprisingly, I found out that they’re the real deal!
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.
WebHostFace is a fairly new web hosting company. I think they started last year but they have quickly proved themselves in the web hosting industry — they’ve clearly shown that they are a solid web hosting provider. Read on to find out why!
Last year, I signed up for Bluehost mainly because they had a nice Black Friday deal. At that time I needed a host for one of my new projects so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try Bluehost! Unfortunately things didn’t go so well — I figured that they overload their servers and their support team definitely sucks.
If someone asked me which registrar I think is the best, I would say “Namecheap, no doubt.” But there’s so much more to Namecheap than just domains; they also offer hosting services. I’ve always wondered how good they were in this aspect, so I gave their web hosting services a shot!
I signed up for A Small Orange last November 2013 mainly to try and experiment with a self-hosted Ghost blog. ASO delivered well in this regard, although there are some important aspects that they need to improve on.
Fresh Roasted Hosting is a Pennsylvania-based web hosting company founded in 2012. Although they’ve been around for quite some time now, I first learned about them in late 2013 through the WebHostingTalk forums. Fresh Roasted Hosting gets recommended a lot over at WHT. This made me want to check them out and try their service.
I signed up with CrocWeb two months ago because I have Canadian clients who want their websites hosted on a Canadian server. Overall, my experience with them has been great. I am happy with my reseller account but I can’t deny the fact that there are areas where CrocWeb could use some improvement.
