How We Rate Hosts

Our editors thoroughly review and test each web hosting company just like you would: call with pre-sales questions, sign up for a plan, setup and create a basic website, test the included features, explore the back-end, contact tech support with questions or problems, and monitor statistics like server uptime and page load speed.

Ratings are then based on our experts’ evaluation of all these points with consideration for universal factors like price, level of service, and current industry standards.

RateMyHost is committed to providing accurate and comprehensive web hosting reviews from the user’s perspective. We don’t request special treatment or advanced services from hosting companies—we have the same experience you would have when signing up with a new host.

How to Choose the Right Host

Choosing the right host for your website can be complicated, especially when you have so many choices and aspects to consider. RateMyHost is a great place to start, and our guides and lists have been carefully crafted by our industry experts to give you sound advice, but the first and most important step to choosing a good host is to consider what’s most important to you and your website. A non-profit with a limited budget has far different priorities than a multinational corporation.

RateMyHost can point you in the right direction, but every website is different and unique. Read some reviews, look over some lists, and then decide what’s going to work best for you and your website.
