Web Hosting Comparison

2014 Reviews   
We surveyed thousands of Internet users and the web hosting services they used to find the Top 25 web hosting companies that offered the best quality of service at the most affordable rate. The different categories which contribute to the overall rating include uptime dependability, cost, customer service, speed, bandwidth, storage space, customer interviews, control panel usability, redundancy, and fifteen other categories. This list has grown larger than 25 as new companies have cracked our top 25 list and instead of removing ones that have been reviewed, we have just adjusted the rankings. You can visit the official homepage of each company by clicking 'Visit Website' or the screenshot of their homepage.
