Web Hosting Rating

This week along with exploring social media I wanted to touch on web hosting. One of the biggest concerns for new bloggers, or bloggers looking to move to Wordpress is hosting.

Should you go cheap? Should you go with support? Should you host on your friends account? Essentially which hosting is right for you.

Well websites like Web Hosting Rating allow you to find reviews of web hosting as well as sharing your own reviews.

What’s The Best Hosting?

WebHostingRatingWell it depends on what you’re looking for. On the front page of WebHostingRating.com you can see #1-10 based on reviews. It shows the price and how many “thumbs up” it has received.

But what about if you want the hosting for something in particular? Maybe a forum? Or maybe you are on a budget?

On the sidebar of WebHostingRating you can see their “awards” for the different web hosting.

For example, Globat (never heard of them) is the best blog hosting, and Bluehost is best for forums.

However, what I’d LIKE to see is WHY. What makes them better for each particular award. Is it votes? If I was a newbie blogger I wouldn’t understand half of the stuff that is on there.

You can always help out your fellow blogger and go review some of these web hosting sites that you may have used, so they know if it’s good or not. I have a review coming up about a web hosting site I haven’t used personally, but really impressed me!

When shopping for web hosting, do you consider “reviews” or do you research it yourself?

    I think hostgator is the best. They are not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. They are worth the extra cost.
