7 Best Cloud Hosting Providers (Reviews & Performance Tests)

Reading Time: 9 min read

Cloud server hosting has gained immense popularity in the recent past and the trend is likely to grow over the future.

So, what exactly is cloud hosting?

Well, to put in the simplest form, the resources required to maintain your website are spread across more than one web server and can be across different geographical location.

Technically your website does not just rely on one server but a cluster of servers that work together often mentioned as “the cloud” which helps to keep your website up and running.

Cloud hosting greatly reduces chances of any downtime resulting due to server malfunctioning.

Another advantage is, it allows to manage peak load efficiently without bandwidth issues since another server can provide an additional resource in such cases.

HostGator Review: Why I Love/Hate HostGator (Save $149+ on Plans)

Reading Time: 13 min read

I think you’ll agree with me on this:

Web hosting companies can be hard to choose.

There are so many competing plans, packages, and terms that it can easily get lost in translation.

This is true especially if you are new to web hosting, domains, servers, and looking for free web hosting business in general.

I want to clear up some of the mess by providing you with a simple guide to HostGator web hosting and the services they provide. They’re not free web hosting, but they provide much more value than you pay for.

In fact, in the next few sections, I want to lay out what I’ve discovered about HostGator and why I recommend them as one of the best web hosting companies for 2018.

After this, you’ll be confident that you can make an informed choice about which provider you’ll choose for all your hosting and domain services.

I’ve known that HostGator has been around for a while, and that they’ve been providing a steady and reliable source of web hosting for newcomers and experienced web wizards alike.

But it was when I saw in the news that they were opening up their line of all-new, high-powered dedicated servers that are 4 times faster than before that I perked up.

4 times faster dedicated servers! I’ll tell you more about why you care about that in a second.

SiteGround Review: Pros & Cons after 5 Months of Monitoring!

Reading Time: 10 min read

Ah, Siteground. If you’ve been looking into web hosting lately, there is no way you haven’t stumbled across this name. Easily one of the biggest names in the world of web hosting, it can be a little hard to know where to start.

It’s mostly stayed out of the news, minus its vocal opposition to the United States bills SOPA and PIPA a few years ago (if you’re unfamiliar, it was in good company here, joining many major online companies in protest).

If it’s stayed out of the news though, it definitely has not stayed out of articles and reviews. It’s just too notable to not hear about if you’re curious about this stuff.

But is bigger always better? How many online Siteground reviews can you really trust anyway? What makes Siteground stand apart from some other top names?

Of course, I can’t fully answer those questions, but I hope to at least shed some light about Siteground nonetheless.

FastComet Review: Comparison with Big Companies & Uptime Tested!

Reading Time: 10 min read

So you’ve been looking into web hosting.

You’ve heard all the big names and you’ve seen plenty of top ten lists.

If you’ve seen a list of the top ten hosting options, there’s almost no way you haven’t seen the name FastComet come up.

But maybe if you decided to Google around, you haven’t found many (if any) news articles featuring FastComet.

Well, nothing from a reputable source anyway.

So of course you ask yourself one of the most common questions of our age—is it legit?

Well I have good news (or bad, in that more options can make your decision more difficult): yes, FastComet’s legit!

First of all, don’t be too put off by the lack of news articles. The biggest hosting companies may get some mentions in the news, but bigger doesn’t always mean better, even in the world of hosting.

In fact, in my opinion, it’s a testament to FastComet’s versatility as a platform that it has managed to maintain such a positive image online without encountering significant negative press from big sources.

So don’t worry! FastComet may not be in the news, but it’s definitely in the reviews, and it’s in good ones at that.

Take, for example, this review.
