GlowHost picked up major points for their 91-day money-back guarantee. They were six days short of DreamHost’s 97-day guarantee, but with these numbers, who’s quibbling over a few days? The company also picked up points for their 24/7/365 phone support option and free cPanel offering for most plans. The company operates 18 datacenters worldwide. Finally, the company gains major points by driving all its hosting services with wind power.
One aspect of customer service is whether you can get help with issues that aren’t typically covered by a support contract. For example, let’s say that you want to implement a special feature.

For this particular test I sent 50 users to a testing site, increasing from one user to 50 concurrent users, over the span of 10 minutes. 50 concurrent users is a nice baseline test for a shared host. Once you hit that benchmark on a fairly consistent basis, it’s probably time to start exploring VPS and Managed WordPress hosting options. Traffic increases steadily throughout the timeframe until 50 users are visiting the site all at the same time.
We loved FastComet’s in-depth knowledge base, which includes both written guides and video tutorials. They cater equally well to people first setting up their website and to those with more advanced technical skill sets who are trying to troubleshoot specific issues.
There are small differences in the appearance of each web host’s cPanel — where specific buttons are located, or what their icons look like — but navigation is pretty much the same and includes a search bar at the top if you get lost.
Choosing is simple: select hosting that will support the script, platform, or CMS you want to use. And if you aren’t sure, go for Linux hosting. For example, WordPress will run on Linux and Windows, but hosts generally recommend that you run it on Linux. However, if you want to use a Windows-specific technology like ASP.NET, you’ll need a Windows host.
Every website on the world wide web consists of a web host and a domain name. You can refer to the domain as the website name, while the web hosting is the storage. DNS combines these two ingredients and the final result is a functional website.
Website hosting companies are far from rare on the internet, and all of them claim to be the best value for money, but now and then you hear about free web hosting. Does this really exist and if so what do you get for free?

As of now FreeHosting offers free cPanel hosting with many features and addons. The only “catch” is that one must have his/her own domain to sign up and use their free site hosting service, as they do not provide free subdomains.
PHP is an open source scripting language that borrows from the likes of C, Java, and Perl, and can be HTML-embedded. Using a PHP hosting provider rather than any old generic host save you loads of trouble, including not having to parse and compile your files or install and learn any additional web publishing tools.

Reseller hosting options are a special type of hosting plan. Essentially, if you want to start a business and sell web hosting while someone else maintains the server, reseller hosting is the way to go. With a reseller plan, you buy access to server resources in bulk, and then resell it under your own brand.
For example, you may certainly contact your host at any time, but when are they available to respond to your questions and concerns? How long will it take for someone to get back to you? Will there be someone to help you if your mission-critical website goes down at 3:00 in the morning? What language(s) do your host providers speak? Support in Malagasy is probably essential if you live and work in Madagascar, but fairly useless if you are in North America.
Baby and Business plans allow unlimited domains to be hosted within the account. However, if you are selling hosting to your own clients, you must use a Reseller (or above) account; hosting paying customers on a Baby or Business account is forbidden.
Web hosting plan reviews, like those featured on this site, bring with them their own unique set of technical phrases. Familiarize yourself with some brief definitions in our handy web hosting glossary.
Godaddy reached out and asked that I clarify the results of their test. This is what they had to say:”We use a software security layer called Sentinel. Because of it’s conservative settings, the software detected the load test as a DoS attack since all the LoadImpact traffic was coming from one IP, and banned it for 5 minutes.”I believe they have thresholds set at a painfully low level if they consider 25 users a DDOS attack. That means one small business sharing an article internally could take down a site.
