How we rate the web hosting companies?

Nothing is more believable than words from the company's customers. The customer service and uptime rating is based on the customer reviews. The rating on Value-For-Money is purely based on my personal opinion.

Web Hosting Basics

Domain Name - Your Door Sign

Hosting service works like a rented virtual space or land. It needs an address for someone to access the hosting service. This is where a domain name comes into place. With a domain name, the user just have to type the address into the browser to access the hosting service in the form of a website.

Shared Hosting - Affordable and easy to use

Shared hosting is the most common web hosting service on the market. In fact, a large majority of the websites running on shared web hosting.

As the name implies, shared hosting is a arrangement where you share bandwidth, hard disk storage and IP address with other paying customers. Due to the structure of this model, it is usually low-cost and easy to maintain, even for inexperienced users. Shared hosting accounts usually comes with a large amount of features. The price, simplicy and trouble-free aspect make shared hosting a popular options for most people.

Reseller Hosting - High Profit (Usually for web designers)

As a reseller, you purchase a fixed amount of disk storage, bandwidth and features from the hosting provider and resell it to our own customers. This give us the capability to offer to your own customers, shared hosting service. The beauty of this arrangement is that usually it is possible to make it obvious to the end users that you own your own servers instead of the web hosting providers.

VPS Hosting - Virtual Server with high flexibility

A virtual private server, or VPS, is created by software that partitions a single physical server to establish multiple virtual servers within it. Also known as virtualization, this process results in a number of isolated virtual environments with the ability to perform many of the same functions as an individual server. A VPS comes with guaranteed resources like CPU, memory and storage space. You can also update the security as and when you like. However, it takes a relatively experienced server administrator to manage a VPS. It works like a server and it is best option for a compromise between shared server hosting and dedicated web hosting.

Dedicated Hosting - Unmanaged and Full Control

With dedicated web hosting, you owned your own hardware for your website. It provides you with a full control over the server as well as higher flexibility and performance. With dedicated web hosting, you can choose your own operating sysem, usually Linux or Windows, install your own software and set the best security measures to protect the server. It is important to note that a dedicated server is usually unmanaged or just a server without system administrators; you got to manage the server by yourself. If you have not knowledge in Linux or Windows, please do not get a dedicated hosting.

Managed Hosting - The most expensive option

Similar to shared web hosting, the server is managed by server administrators and monitored. Server security and responsibility goes to the web hosting provider. What you need to do is to manage it like a shared hosting service but with full performance capability of the server. Managed hosting services are usually for customers who wish to avoid the technical hassle needed to manage a dedicated server. The biggest downside of this option is the price itself.
