#4. Namecheap

Jonathan Griffin. Editor @ The Webmaster

. Hosting Expert & Editor @ The Webmaster:

"Namecheap's shared hosting is incredibly good on price, but somewhat lacking in performance-related features. Their Stellar Business plan used to be quite good, but with the RAM-based caching reliant on old PHP versions, we think this is long due an upgrade on the technical side. Overall, while we love Namecheap as a Registrar, we can't get excited about their shared hosting. "
