Web Hosting Reviews

“Essentially, Clickfire will be the one guaranteed reliable source online where users can be certain that the reviews offered are not influenced by web hosting marketers whose influence completely clouds objectivity, as is the case with many websites claiming to provide trustworthy web hosting reviews.” – Joe Eitel, article from Developer Shed

Web host ratings are based on the Clickfire web hosting review process. Reviews, ratings and opinions are those of the individual reviewers and not necessarily those of Clickfire. Prices quoted are normally for the cheapest plans with the lowest possible pricing options which mean that they are usually for the longest terms (2 or 3 years, for example) with the full term typically paid up front and with coupon codes and discounts from Clickfire review pages. See individual hosts for details and final word. Reviews may contain affiliate advertising.

Help with the Painful Task of Finding the Best Web Hosting

Our experienced reviewers:

  • log in and evaluate each host
  • Install scripts, upload files, test speed
  • Interact with support
  • Report each host’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Rate each host

What’s different about Clickfire web hosting reviews?

Our seasoned web host reviewers actually log in to live hosting accounts and critique the service of each web host provider. This usually includes performing tasks like installing scripts, creating and installing web site files, testing speed and abilities of customer support to solve common problems. Our reviewers then report the hosts’ strengths and weaknesses and rate each service right here for the world to see. I hope these reviews help answer the questions you need in making your web host choice. Compare these 5 well-known hosting companies displayed in the web hosting comparison table to get started.
