Top 10 Web Hosting Companies

I’ve come across this site which lists the top 10 web hosting companies in the web. A lot of webmaster are looking for cheap web hosts to run their sites. Web hosting is also not only limited to webmasters but bloggers nowadays are not satisfied with blogs on free domains such as blogger or wordpress. They want it on their own domain and host in order for their blogs to look more professional.

Anyways, here are the top 10 web hosting companies as listed on the site:

  1. Monster Host
  2. Blue Hosting
  3. IX Web Hosting
  4. HostGator
  5. LunarPages
  6. Yahoo! Small Biz
  7. EasyCGI Windows
  8. WHP
  9. PowWeb
  10. Startlogic

Out of the ten of these web hosting companies, Monster Host has been consistently on the top 5 of the various list available on the web. Monthly hosting fee is $7.95 for Monster Host but you can visit the site’s special link and get it for only $5.95. Yahoo! Small Biz also looks good since they offer unlimited web space and unlimited bandwidth plus the price is $8.96. However, upon visiting Yahoo! Small Biz, the $8.96 fee only applies for the first three months and the succeeding months is pegged at $11.95. Seems expensive, but hey, you get UNLIMITED bandwidth and disk space, so this is really good choice. However, in Google’s webmaster group, someone advised me against Yahoo!

Anyways, I’m content running my site on Blogger on my own domain. Maybe if I get around 10k page views per day, that’s the time I’ll start thinking of web hosting.
