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.
GoDaddy has been around for many years, but up until now I don’t understand why they can’t stick to offering just domain registrations. Recently, they’ve been exerting effort into “improving” their services and that’s nice, but it’s not enough to keep me and my clients with them.
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.
I’ve heard of Site5 many times but it’s only this year that I decided to try them out. To be honest, I was reluctant in signing up because I knew they were a bigger company than most hosts I’ve used. In my experience, most big companies tend to be less inclined in providing quality service and I thought Site5 was no exception. I was wrong.
I’ve been building websites on and off since 2006, and through the years I’ve jumped from one web host to another to find one that fits my needs the most. I stumbled upon DowntownHost in late 2007 and I’ve hosted several sites with them since then.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
