With a lot of web hosting companies right now, choosing a web host is one confusing, if not a gruelling, task to tackle. Reading reviews online will even confuse you more instead of helping you pick a perfect choice because of conflicting ideas.
Whenever I look for web hosting reviews, I do not only read the author’s point of view because oftentimes, they are just “reviewing” the product to post their affiliate links. It is in the comments section where most of the helpful ideas will come in as actual users often feel the need to express their satisfaction (or lack of it) with their current web host – especially if the review is about their host.
It is also good to visit web hosting review and ratings sites where reviews are contributed by actual users – each of them rating their host accordingly. This is a big help to newbies who do not have any idea of how certain web hosts operate or provide services and are usually the victims of agressive marketing schemes of web hosts who put more money on advertising than in the improvement of their services. Don’t be surprised to see some less known companies to be considered as best budget hosting, best blog hosting or best business hosting companies in this kind of review sites because oftentimes, this is the place where satisfied customers show their approval and support of their host.
