Recommended Web Hosting

I have been busy building some new blogs these past weeks and was in the need for an additional web hosting provider. It’s not that I am not very satisfied with my current host, HostGator; I just like to not have all my eggs in the same nest (so to speak). Actually, I am still extremely happy with HostGator! But, as I said, I needed a new host for some blogs, so I turned to hosting sites with the help of best recommended web hosting sites.

“Top hosting” web sites

The thing is, when you start to look at these recommended web hosting or web hosting review sites, you will see that there is a big discrepancy between the officially recommended web hosts and the reviews submitted by users. The companies receiving five stars on the front page usually have tons of bad reviews from people actually using their services. You may wonder if these so called best recommended web hosting sites are just big advertisements for the web hosts that pay their affiliates the most.

I confess open heartedly that I use affiliate links on this blog and in my reviews, if the host I am reviewing has such a program. This is to make money, and I guess there is nothing wrong with that. However, I never review a web host based on what they pay, or give them a recommendation because of such pay. If I review a bad web host with a good affiliate program, I will tell the truth…that they are bad. I might even link to the host with an affiliate link, but again, I won’t give them a 5 out of 5 star rating.

Finding new web hosting

Getting back to the subject of this post, I needed a new web host but found that most of the sites with web hosting recommendations that can’t be trusted. I read the user reviews, and that did however help me on my way. But what I found was the best way to find good web hosts was to search for the best webhosts  using web hosting forums that contain all the information.

Look for current or previous customer reviews

Actually, I visited the offers section, went through some of them, and then searched the board for customer reviews. A couple of hours later I ended up with SharkSpace. They had received rave reviews, and also had fantastic promo-coupon that I felt useful.

So, the journey to finding a new web host was finally over. I have to say, I really don’t like using hours finding a new web hosting company that has a low risk of being bad. But, it’s better to invest some time beforehand, than ending up having to move your site after a month because you chose a rotten apple. For me, looking at the recommended web hosts from current, or previous, customers is always the best bet!

Ok, I will come back with a full review of SharkSpace when I have been with them for a month or so. The first day has been great, and the server I am on is actually the fastest I have been on to date, no question about it. The server is brand new, I was told, so that might have something to do with it. I have had a couple of tickets, and all have been answered within minutes. Hoping the quality will continue to be stable, so that I can recommend them for web hosting later!

A typical Web hosting geek. Nothing else!
