Not all web hosts are created equal. Yet on almost all shiny hosting websites, each hosting provider claims to be the very best out there. So how do you actually find out who is the best host? And when you’re reading reviews and comparisons on other websites, how do you know which are independent, genuine reviews that haven’t been paid for?
It used to be easier to find the best hosting out there that’s backed up by real, honest reviews. In 2018, and 2019, it’s more difficult. Many web hosts have consolidated and are part of a larger organisation. Most review sites are affiliate sites that determine the “best” hosts based on how much they get paid. That means for you, the sensible buyer doing some due diligence on the future home for your website, it is ever more difficult to actually land on the right hosting company.
