Low-cost Web Host Test Results and Reviews

UPDATED: 4/27/15

CURRENT STATUS: Cheap web hosting reviews — including page-load speed and uptime percentage test results — for 50 top hosting companies completed.

To provide the most accurate and unbiased web hosting reviews possible, NCM Online purchases the cheapest WordPress-compatible plan from hosts to be evaluated in order to perform reliability and speed testing. Web hosting services are evaluated for renewal price, ease-of-use, disk space, bandwidth (data transfer), page-load speed, uptime percentage, technical support, BBB rating, money-back guarantee, and overall satisfaction.

Eight of the ten ranking factors are data-driven, and therefore preclude any possible reviewer bias. The remaining two ranking factors (ease-of-use and satisfaction), are based on the expert opinion of the editors. Visit the Methodology page for NCM Online‘s complete ranking system. See reviews for host ratings, test results, coupon codes, discount information, and WordPress installation video tutorials.

Monthly price comparisons listed on this page are based on 1-year term renewal price divided by 12 months, and are exclusive of coupon/promo codes or limited time/introductory offer discounts. These are the prices a customer would pay in year two when renewing an annual plan.
