Best Web Hosting Sites: 2016's Top Web Hosts

What gets a hosting service ranked?
. The data center capabilities along with their uptime guarantees is closely examined. In house customer service is a must, no out-sourced support. Hosts must offer everything required for a new website: blogs and site builders (wordpress), complete content management systems (Joomla), shopping carts for an online store, email, webmail and more. Also required is support for shell access: SSH, and secure socket layer: SSL.

Cloud hosting over shared?

  • Cloud Hosting offers all the features of shared hosting.
  • Up to 2X faster with a cloud host than shared servers.
  • High traffic limits with up to 4X resources vs shared.
  • View usage trends, speed, uptime & more at a glance.
  • Add resources CPU/Ram with no reboots or downtime.
