WebHostingGeeks.com is an independent hosting review website that began in 2004 as a university student’s project and was made available to the public in February of 2005. The website is one of the most popular sources of information regarding different web hosts around the world. Anybody that is thinking of signing up for a web host, or is just doing some research on how different companies in the web hosting arena operate can find the information that they need at Web Hosting Geeks.
Unlike many other hosting review sites that only give information on some of the most popular webshosts, Web Hosting Geeks has reviews for dozens of hosting providers, including some of the smaller providers or companies that specialize in a specific type of hosting, such as small business hosting.
Reviewers on the site have the ability to assign a rating from 1 to 5 stars to rate the hosting company’s performance with their tech support, software, reliability & uptime, price as well as user-friendliness. These star ratings are then averaged to give a global rating for 1 to 5 points. This will then be used to calculate which hosts have the best overall ratings from their reviewers. Those who are in the top 10 get a special section on the website, allowing users to quickly see which companies are the best. Of course, in addition to a star rating, the reviewer can post up to 1000 characters to concisely explain to site visitors what they think of a certain web host.
One thing that sets Web Hosting Geeks apart from other hosting review sites is that in addition to just reviews, they have a “Q&A” section where users can ask questions related to hosting or respond to them. They also have a blog that discusses issues that go beyond simply web hosting, such as site building ideas or internet marketing tips for small business owners.
