San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/19/2014 -- Web hosting provides the invaluable possibility of owning a piece of web real estate, where anyone in the world can access it and find the information, services and providers they are looking for. However, a good website is only as good as its hosting, and the quality of hosting is determined by its hosting provider. Hosting Monkey is a new website that has been busily investigating hosting providers, going through their services and features with robust testing to establish which hosts perform best. They have now launched their site with the first edition of their top 5 hosting companies.
The five best web hosting providers have been treated to the best hosting reviews currently available on the web, with a count-down style summary on the homepage leading to detailed and comprehensive reviews on the companies themselves, their services, special features and rates. Six distinct factors are taken into consideration to create the final score: features, price, credibility, server reliability, technical support, and user friendliness.
The review takes the format of listing all the key features followed by the major advantages, then finally the disadvantages before providing a final judgment. In this way users can prioritize their own needs and choose the provider that best serves them. The HostGator review praises its free Google AdWords incentives while the iPage review praises its free domain name.
A spokesperson for Hosting Monkey explained, “We are fortunate to live in an age where web hosting is fiercely competitive, which has driven the quality of services up across the whole market. That said, there are still clear winners in the race, and we recommend them wholeheartedly. Each of those that have made my top 5 have advantages to commend them to consumers, it depends which of these factors is the most important to the consumer themselves as to which they choose. Our reviews make it possible to weigh up these pros and cons and then users can go directly to the provider to sign up.”
