WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WEB HOST REVIEW SITES AND WHY I CREATED THESE WEB HOSTING SPEED TEST SITES:
Many of the web hosting review sites and “top ten web host” lists you see on the web are bogus. They are created just to get you to sign up with the web hosting company that will pay the owner of that website the highest affiliate commission. Now, notice that I said “many”, not all web host review sites are bogus. The problem is, you don’t know which ones are bogus, and which ones are being honest.
Dreamhost published an article titled “Web Hosting’s Dirty Laundry” in which they uncovered how the sales manager at hosting-review.com asked Dreamhost if they wanted to pay them thousands of dollars to appear at the bottom of their “Top Ten Web Hosts” list. Wow. How much would it have cost Dreamhost to appear at the top of that list… tens of thousands of dollars? That kind of behavior is disgraceful and completely dishonest! Trust me when I tell you, they’re not the only web host review site accused of practicing this kind of behavior.
By the way, on the bottom of hosting-review.com’s homepage, you’ll find this message:
“Whether you want to launch a personal or business website, you want a web hosting company you can count on. You’ll want good value for your money, courteous and accessible customer service and the speed and space you want. Your web host should treat you with respect, and offer you room to grow. The Hosting-Review.com Top 10 is here to help you make the best choice for a web host.”
Wrong. According to the article, their “Top 10” list is there to get unsuspecting visitors to click on their high-paying affiliate links and sign up with a hosting company they THINK is fast and reliable, based solely on Hosting-Review.com’s so-called “reviews”.
Look, there is nothing wrong with getting paid affiliate commissions for driving customers to a good web host. Webmasters and bloggers, like myself, have to make a living like everyone else. But, if you’re getting paid affiliate commissions by lying and deceiving people, then THAT is a huge problem!
This is EXACTLY why I created my web host speed test websites. This way you can test for YOURSELF just how fast Bluehost, GreenGeeks, HostGator, InMotion Hosting, iPage, and SiteGround will load the webpages of your WordPress website BEFORE you lay down your hard-earned cash for web hosting. You no longer have to rely on web hosting reviews written by total strangers.
I hope my web hosting speed test sites will help you make an informed decision about which hosting company will truly provide you with the best shared hosting speed, performance, and website uptime for your money.
Good luck and thanks for watching!
