About Top 10 Website Hosting

My name is James and I created Top 10 Website Hosting to offer something different compared to all the other so-called “review” sites giving you false and misleading information.

We’ve collected data from many of the best web hosts out there and presented them in an easy to compare feature list which includes the server speed, uptime and customer service waiting times.

When I was searching for a web host I was often given advice by “experts”, with no real concrete evidence that the hosts they were promoting were actually any good. After hours of research I’d finally pick a provider and move all my content, files and databases across (this takes hours!).

After doing all this I then would sit back and pray it was the right choice. However response and up-times were just not good enough and then I’d get on the phone to the support and wait ages for a reply.

For what seemed like eternity I was finally got a reply who didn’t have a clue on what the solution was. For me this was a nightmare and I never wanted to make the same mistake…

This wasn’t the only time that it’s happened. I’d try other web hosts and experience similar problems.

Does this sound familiar?

Because of the troubles I had experienced with many web hosts, I took it upon myself to carry out my own testing. I signed up to each web host using my own details in order to test the web server’s response time, performance, and uptime. All of these aspects were monitored using a fantastic tool called Pingdom.

I’d also test the features of each web host, including their control panel, website builders, knowledgebase, and customer support waiting times, via telephone, email, support ticket, and live chat where possible. It was as simple as that.

As I delved deeper into each web host, I pulled together all of my findings in order to produce my honest and unbiased reviews. My mission was to simply eliminate the laborious process for others, providing honest, accurate, reviews, with real data to compare against.

Factors affected by your web hosting

I discovered there were several factors affected by which web host you choose; these factors are undoubtedly important if you’re serious about running a personal website, blog, or eCommerce site.

After all, it’s not always about choosing the cheapest web host – it really depends on your wants and needs as a customer.


I hope I’ve been able to outline my intentions with openness and honesty. There are plenty of helpful resources and blogs posts that I’ve put together in order to help you. But, if you’re still unsure of what host is best suited for you, please feel free to send me an email and ask any questions!
