Why You Can Trust Our Top 10 Web Hosting Reviews


Web hosting review sites have a less-than-stellar reputation within the technology industry. Unfortunately, that view is not without merit.

The vast majority of top 10 website hosting sites that provide reviews are affiliate sites — including this one. We are paid a commission when a visitor referred from our site purchases hosting. If not for affiliate commissions, it is unlikely that many review sites would even exist.

While there is nothing to prevent affiliate sites from providing honest reviews — the unfortunate fact remains — it is faster, cheaper, and easier not to. Purchasing hosting services and setting up test sites takes time and costs money. Using third-party testing services to evaluate the quality of those services takes even more time and costs even more money.

Therefore, all too many affiliate sites simply skip to the review writing part. That can be done quickly, cheaply, and easily.

Further complicating the matter is the fact that some of the worst hosting companies pay some of the highest affiliate commissions in order to counter poor word of mouth. This of course, encourages less-than-reputable affiliates to post positive evaluations of low-quality hosts.


We realize that trust is earned — not given. At NCM Online we have and will continue to work very hard to gain and maintain the trust of our visitors.

Before our first review was written, we decided to provide facts instead of opinion whenever and wherever possible. The system we designed to rate and rank moderately-priced and cheap top 10 web hosting services relies on evaluations of 10 different criteria: price, ease-of-use, disk space, bandwidth, page-load speed, uptime percentage, support, BBB rating, money-back guarantee, and satisfaction. Eight of the 10 are fact-based, while only two (ease-of use and satisfaction) rely on opinion.

Further, we decided to make the entire process completely transparent to our visitors by publishing our entire methodology. We also decided to utilize the services of an independent third-party testing firm — Dotcom Monitor — to monitor and record the uptime percentage and page-load speed test data.

We believe that the results of our methodology combined with third-party testing allow us to publish fact-based web hosting reviews that are largely free of bias. But ultimately, what we believe is of little consequence. We leave it to you, the visitor, to judge the success of our efforts.
