Transparent web hosting reviews

Every web host listed below has been subject to performance testing. Read the reviews to find out more

Our methodology

Unlike the vast majority of hosting review websites, our reviews are data-driven (not profit driven). We actually use the products we review.

We maintain 20 hosting accounts and test uptime, response time, customer service and more besides. Read more here.

How we're paid

We're 100% independent; if we recommend a host we recommend them on merit.

However, we want you to know we earn commissions by referring customers who purchase products. Read more here.
