Mc Calla, Alabama (PressExposure) May 01, 2009 -- Basing the selection of a website hosting provider solely on a Web hosting reviews can be a poor decision. Many hosting review websites earn their income from either being paid to host the reviews or from earning commission from the sales of hosting plans.
A simple search of Google for the term 'web hosting reviews' will return a selection of almost sixty eight million results which gives an indication of just how profitable the review business can be. To further demonstrate this, to place an advert on Google using Googleâs Adwords program will currently cost you $14 to $18 for a top 3 position. Now, businesses donât spend that kind of money on 1 click unless they are making an excellent profit from each visitor.
This is not to say that web hosting reviews websites donât have their places. They can be a great source of information on what each company has on offer at the moment and some of them will even provide you with coupons to use that will give you reduced fees for the first month. But to get the best it is a good idea to check out trusted review site (as http://www.webhostingreviewz.com) and see which providers are constantly rated the best. Once the review site has provided you with the basic info its then time for you to do your own reviews by visiting the hosts you have selected.
Once you visit the hosting providerâs site you should first check that the offer displayed on the web hosting reviews sites was accurate and that any offers are still running. It is not uncommon for the review site to feature offers that are months out of date. Next stop should be the support forums to check out if the customers are happy and that any problems are quickly dealt with. If you really want to find a good host you canât beat reviews from users who you know and trust. Your online friends can often be the best source of web hosting reviews.
Web Hosting reviews sites are not all bad but you need to appreciate that many of them are in the business of making money for their owners. Many will immediately remove any negative reviews so you donât get to see the full picture. With that in mind treat any web hosting reviews as a paid advert and use them as research and you should be able to find some good hosts.
