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.
One.com is one of the more popular web hosts in Europe. I’ve been curious about them since early 2013 and I’ve been checking them out quite frequently since then. Their prices are a bargain and it seemed like their plans are perfect for small sites, so I finally decided to try them out last October 2013. Unfortunately, the quality of their service that I experienced was nowhere near what they promised!
Let’s cut to the chase. JustHost sucks. That’s kinda expected because they are an EIG company, but I didn’t expect they’d be a whole lot worse than their sister companies (e.g., Bluehost, HostGator). I’ve had a client with them and for half a year, we’ve had nothing but trouble.
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 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!
I used to manage a client’s account hosted by Crazy Domains Australia and let me be straightforward with this — I’ve had nothing but headaches with them. It seems this company takes being a bad web host seriously and continually strives to excel in that aspect.
I’ve technically been with HostGator for at least 3 years and I manage different types of accounts with them. HG was good the past few years but the quality of their service has declined recently. They’ve deteriorated so much that I’m currently in the process of helping at least 10 of my clients transfer to another host.
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.
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.
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.
