This is pretty much a rant because of a bad experience I’ve had with one of my webhosts lately. Finding a company to host a website for you isn’t exactly a difficult task finding one that is consistently reliable is a differnt matter however.
gameSniped for example, is hosted by 4ph.com. It’s definitely not the cheapest solution out there, but you do get what you pay for. It’s a company I’ve used for nearly seven years, and I’ve never had a bad word to saw about them.
On the other hand, I’ve used a company called Webkeepers for another site. These guys are by far, the worst web hosting I have ever dealt with. Their support, downtime and general lack of any reliability or even intelligence are utterly unforgivable.
Companies like this are why you should check out sites that offer services to Find the best web hosts like WebHostsReport.com. It can save you a lot of time and heartache. The site evaluates web host performance and allows users to vote web hosts up or down a leaderboard while also adding their own reviews.
