How to shop for web hosting

Shopping for Web Hosting sucks, we’re here to help. When shopping for anything online, most users follow a pretty standard path. They do some online research, compare features & prices, read some user reviews, and make a seemingly informed decision. For most online purchases, this works relatively well, and people generally end up with what they expected. This shopping strategy simply doesn’t work well with web hosting. The problems with shopping for web hosting in this traditional way, are that most web hosting companies offer a nearly identical set of features, a price sometimes within a few cents of each other, and just as many positive reviews as negative ones. This effectively makes picking the right web hosting company a crap shoot. That’s where WebHostingPHD comes in.

WebHostingPHD has two main advantages over traditional web hosting comparison sites. First, by not offering an opinion on any web host, we let the facts do the talking. On each brand’s page, we offer a brief “Just the Facts” summary which includes basic information like, when the brand was founded, and how many accounts they’re currently hosting. We’ve also set up an Essential Feature List that has only the features that matter, and none of the extra proprietary jargon that companies try to confuse you with. Using this standardized feature list, you can be confident that you’re equally comparing what each company has to offer. Secondly, our most powerful tool is how we use social media to let you compare what we think should be the most important factor in your decision making process, customer service. Use our social media stats and live chatter monitor to judge what real people just like you are saying about each brand on Facebook and Twitter, and more importantly, what each brand is saying back.
