Web Host Reviews and Test Results
CURRENT STATUS: 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.
