2. ipage hosting reviews

Let's start ipage analysis by reviewing it's very popular money back guarantee. Though the ipage money back guarantee commits to return back money at any time without a question and is very popular also but what most people don't know, is the amount returned to a buyer at the time of cancellation of service is calculated on a rule which is formed on two basis:

i. Remaining Period.
ii. The early cancellation charge.

{ Remaining Period - cancellation charge}

This money refund rule might sound disappointing but it is far better than getting no refund at all, which in fact is the case with most of the web hosts.
Ipage is a web host situated in Boston, started in 1998, currently registering more than half million domains and hosting more than a million websites on it's server.
Ipage was initially set to Boston but as it was now sold to Endurance International Group, the company expanded it's branches in 150 countries all around the world.

3. Hostgator hosting reviews

Hostgator is fairly new as compared to fatcow and ipage. The company was established in 2002 in Houston with only two servers. But with it's really amazing hard work, it manged to amaze everyone with it's record breaking growth rate. Hostgator is one of those companies which managed to move from 2 servers to a fully established Multi level IT company. In-fact Hostgator is considered as the fastest growing IT company in Texas.

4. Webhostinghub reviews

Webhostinghub has 3 servers which are placed in 3 cities of USA namely New York, Florida and California and it's operating center or say the main office is in Virginia. Though the company claims to be founded in 2001 but since the dns records says that the domain got registered back in 2011, do raises a question mark in it's claiming. But if we leave it's dns records and it's claims a side and focus on rest of the reviewings, we find that webhostinghub has much to offer to it's clients. With a stand alone "shared hosting" plan starting with just $4.95 is one fit plan for all types of business needs.

An easy control panel, website builder, CMS, US call support, unlimited websites, unlimited email, Unlimited disk space and bandwidth plus this all comes with a 90 day money back guarantee.

Why I started this web hosting review blog?

Unlike past more and more companies are focusing their businesses nature online. In order to showcase products and find potential customers online the very first priority is to find a domain name registrar and a company for hosting your website. But we don't know which web host will fit with our nature of business, Which company provider provides optimum server up time, support services etc. Believe me, I have suffered many business failures just because of server down problems. I understood at just an age of 16 years that I am talented in IT field. My hunt for talent finished with the launch of my first website in "form 3" and since then till present I am constantly devoting my time and energy towards IT industry. The most tough thing for me as a newbie in IT was to choose a good company for my website. Believe me I have changed my website hosting server 3 times in a year because of server down problems. There are many companies with their tall claims like quality services, award wining support, 99.9% up time guarantee etc, but all these claims are not met by most of the companies. The point which always strike my mind was a review service. A tool-free service to perform analysis  You must be thinking that I am going crazy now but I always dream that, what if  a company ask you to take web hosting services on a review basis for say a month or two and then charge you, Though that type of analysis is only possible if web hosting companies let us do but since they charge for web hosting weather you want it on review basis or for use, this limits an Individual from performing  reviews. To solve this review problem, I spend my money and time to review each webhosting companies personally and help you choose the right web host for your business. So that when you take web hosting services you forget about performing analysis and feel comfortable in choosing the web host for your business.

How do I perform reviews?

I divide my web hosting review procedure in two phase:

Phase 1: simple and general analysis.
Phase 2: Complex and Advanced analysis.

Phase 1: This review phase is simple and is just a general review of a web host. I simple check for things like Plan types, It's cost, Up time guarantee, Trust and Authority, Experience, Services, Exclusive offers etc. After reviewing all these I simply go for the web host. I pretend like I am a new buy who don't even know like how to pay, Create email id, Upload files through ftp programs. I just play my self like a new guy who is not familiar with even control panel and this helps me review their support services. Here I also try to test the knowledge of their technical team by raising issues like virus problems, scripts installation etc.

Phase 2: This review phase starts after the completion of review phase 1. This phase is not a general phase i.e. It involves those activities which a normal user will never perform. The review phase starts by testing server speed using speed test meter. Then using Pingdom services to completely review any company. Since the process involves taking and and using their servers in order to tackle real world problems, this piece of process helps me give out much realistic analysis for my blog readers.

How do I evaluated web hosting review score?

I evaluate the score of web hosts by using multiple factors score:

  1. Reliability Sore
  2. Speed Score
  3. Usability Score
  4. Features Score
  5. Price worth Score
  6. Customer support Score
TOTAL SCORE =  Reliability Sore + Speed Score + Usability Score + Features Score + Price worth Score + Customer support Score


Web hosting Review Score on  Reliability 1. RELIABILITY:- The the most important aspect of all when it comes to review a company is reliability. For a business to succeed online it's web host should provide 99.9% server reliability and up time guarantee. Major Search engines like Google, Yahoo, Msn etc will  never love a website which has server fault or is having server downtime and if they don't love it they will never put your website high up in their search results and you end up loosing customers. Server up time and reliability is what most of the SEO companies want to insure first. It is well known in SEO community that server down time has serious negative impact in your SEO effort. So in my analysis, reliability is in the topnotch priority.

web hosting speed review
2. SPEED SCORE: The second most important aspect which I look in a  company while performing their hosting analysis is Speed.
A company can include a plan for unlimited disk space and bandwidth  in their sales page but might limit your web server speed so that if your website gets too popular and is using high server bandwidth, by limiting the speed helps companies to limit the use of their server because your website has access to limited data transfer/sec and this makes your site busy and it loads very poorly. Now this practice will help a company but for a website, it's something which a webmaster should never let happen and it is very annoying to your site's loyal visitors. So here I check different speed parameters and then I assign speed score points to get added in the report.

Web hosting Usability Review
3. USABILITY SCORE: Their is no point in neglecting the usability factor when performing a check. It is tendency of newbies to neglect the usability factor just because of  either lower price or higher bandwidth offer. But most webmasters know the importance of Usability.e.g. A task like WordPress installation can be done either manually or if the web hosting company provides simple scripts in control panel for single click CMS installation. With simple scripts in control panel can save your lot amount of time and hence make you more productive. Another thing when it comes to usability is the use of control panels. There are many control panels available in the market but the most easy and usable one is C panel. So it is important to choose a web host that provides c panel control panel for use. So here I check different usability parameters and then I assign usability score points to be added in the report.

Web hosting Features Review
4. FEATURES SCORE:  What most of the people think of features in a  plan is disk space and bandwidth. Though disk space and bandwidth are the most important one, but that's not. Think of a company which provides features like free Google and FB credit, free website submission in yellopages etc. All these features can prove icing in a business growth and one should never miss these features from availing.  So here I check different features and then I assign feature score points to be added in the report.

Web hosting Price worth Review
5. PRICE SCORE:  This review score deals with calculation the worthiness of price. Do you really get return on investment? Though the call is to check ROI and price worthiness but their are other things like easy payment option, money back guarantee, secure payment, privacy policy, billing terms, Tax information etc  which I try to figure out as well.
So here I check ROI and other price features and then assign Price score points to be added in the report.

Web hosting customer support Review 6.CUSTOMER SUPPORT: If you are new to IT field, customer support will be something which you gonna be needing the most. Since web hosting is a digital product and you have no physical support so customer support plays an important role in both technical and customer support. Things like fast and intelligent technical technical support, online Ticket support, live chat are the Hallmark of a Good company. In order for me to assign customer support points, I test customer support department of a company by checking there response time and quality of response, Do they really take your call important? etc.

Are these review score honest, unbiased and unprejudiced? is a  review blog solely run by shiv. The blog has no contact with any companies whose products or services this blog reviews. This blog is founded keeping in mind to educate newbies about IT products and services.

Why do ads appear on this blog?

Ads on these blog is server by Adchoices ( a third party ad network run by Google). The blog has no direct or indirect relation with any of the advertisement served on this blog. The fact that these ads help me cover the investment which comes in the maintenance, testing and product purchasing in order to provide reviews.

    1. Hey praveen,

      I invite you to review that cheap web hosting company on my blog. Just for my audience.

  2. Really nice post but I am looking for some free web host providers for my personal blog. Can you recommend me some?

    1. Mr Daniel,
      Thanks for commenting.
      If you are looking for free hosting for your personal blog then I can suggest you to try.
      WordPress or Blogspot. They both are free and you can surely trust their service. And the best part is that you don't have to code and if in future you feel comfortable,you can buy a domain and redirect it to your blog. It's just great.

      I would also recommend you to read one of my post on How to get a free .com domain and hosting for one year for free.

  4. "now i want my blogspot blog to host in godaddy hosting.......dont reply me to do "mapping"...if i have a domain in godaddy then i can i dont have domain in godaddy"

    Hey, your question is bit confusing

    What actually you wanna do. If you want your whole blogspot to be hosted on godaddy hosting and no longer on blogger, then go buy a domain name in godaddy and blogger provides a option to export all your blogpost in the form of xml. So all you have to do is install wordpress on your godaddy domain and then export the downloaded xml blogspot document on wordpress blog.
