Or use our Review Filter tool to find the Best Web Hosting

To make the most of our Find a Host Review filters, it helps to understand the data available to you, and how best to use it to find the perfect hosting provider for your needs.

Lets go through one example of how we can use the tool:

Step 1: Navigate to the tool by clicking here, and search for a host using our filters.

When you first navigate to the tool, you will see a list of shared web hosting companies (or if you select a different type of hosting from the menu, your chosen type (i.e. VPS, Cloud etc). You will also see our Recommended choice (if any) for that type of hosting.

Best Hosting Reviews

There are some things to note about this page:

  • You can choose a hosting type in the filters on the left hand side of the page. Changing this will clear all your other selections.
  • Each choice in the filters act like a filter, and where you see a cyan arrow, when you click or filter by that type we will provide you with more detailed information about that choice (only works when one slection is made).
  • The Scores can be sorted by "All time", "12 months", "6 months" and "3 months". This enables you to check whether a web host has been rated highly in the near past.  Some times, a web hosting provider can deteriorate due to being purchased by a new owner, but still have high scores because they were really great prior to that purchase (see Arvixe as an example of this).
  • While the scores are accurate, the order in which they show when sorted by Score is weighted. This prevents a new hosting provider that we added being at the top of the table, despite having only one review that is rating a 10. For this reason, you may see some scores slightly out of order in the review table.
  • You can sort the reviews by Score, Date added, and date updated. This is useful when you may want to read our reviews based on how old our opinions on them might be.

Step 2: Use the data in the hosting review to further inform your decision.

Let's use the example of our highest user rated hosting provider; SiteGround. When you visit the review page, you will immediate see a dashboard contained with information.

Scores

The first screen (as shown above) shows the Total All-time score.

Rating over time

Where it gets interesting is the second screen, that shows the Rating history over time in the form of a graph:

Are they recommended by our users?

The final dashboard widget shows, based on the ratings, whether the web host is recommended by our users. It also shows how many out of the total reviews recommended the host, as well as the percentage figure:

How do our ratings work?

It is useful, for reference purposes at this stage to post a screenshot of out "leave a review" page:

Review web hosting providerAs you can see, we provide clear recommendations for what each score means, along with a total score at the end showing whether you recommend that host.  

Any host that receives a total score of 7 or above will be count as a recommendation, so if you do not wish to recommend, or vice versa, you may need to adjust your scores until you find something that better suits your opinion on that web host.
