Notes

1. ALL web hosting review sites listed above accept PAYOLA from the web hosts that they review, with a disclosure on their home page. They SAY that this does not affect their impartial reviews. Do you believe that? Or does he who pays the most get the highest rank? One finds a great deal of incest when looking at these sites. Not only in reviews, but also in ownership.

2. There is quite a difference of opinion about who the best hosts are. I suggest you visit each one, and see which one is right for you.

3. "99.9% uptime" equates to about 8 hours downtime per year.

4. One vender claims 30 million web sites. Is that what you want? To be one of millions? Is biggest best? Regarding web hosting, maybe not.

Thank you for your time.
