    Hi, these new companies like shock hosting, crocweb and many others that are emerging every day with more discounted competitive rates have amazing rates per month/year which is very captivating. Some are like $10 per year with good storage and domains. These new companies came into biz a couple of years ago and are giving such good and affordable rates which hostgator and bluehost are charging like $35 or $40+ per year.

    All I am asking are these companies trustable and reliable for business? Why are they not that popular to show up on google? Even when I search for a "recent time" on google, all I see is bluehost, hostagator, inmotion, wpx, siteground and etc.

    And there is always this possibility that these companies can see our websites and copy the entire content pixel by pixel and do slight alteration and start their own biz?

    These prices are really good but are these trustable and reliable like bluehost and hostgator?

    Hi, I need some "experienced" web hosting recommendations from members here based on Performance, Privacy, Security, and Support. I certainly would not want the web hoster to look at my stuff.

    Additionally, I was looking by myself and found AccuWebHosting so I enquired about it in webhostingtalk .com.

    I'm SORRY to mention another forum name here but just hear me out about how stupid they are.

    I saw a regular member there saying accuwebhosting is banned from there. So, I did a WhoIS on accu and saw they are in this line since 2003, so I searched for some reviews and saw both mixed + okay reviews online which is good because some people are weird and have stupid high demands by paying little cents of money lol. So, I wondered a webhosting with more or less good reviews and in this business for over 15 years and banned from webhostingtalk .com have to be something else.

    So, I created a thread there asking why exactly was this hosting banned, if it was any scam or anything? The reason was that I need to know as I was about to get a hosting by seeing their plans. And webhostingtalk being a DEDICATED hosting forum, I thought it would be good to ask. Now, after some time, my thread was deleted. I was like what could they have done as the admin and mods were so pissed that they deleted a thread asking about an opinion about a banned hosting? They could have easily replied the things they (accu) have done that led them to ban accu from there but NO they had to delete my thread. Such childish.

    Anyways, now I am looking for some recommendations from members here who have their own experience on performance, privacy, security, and support.

    I was in stablehost then I moved my websites to siteground and TBH I am really satisfied from their hosting, they have got great support team, great performance, I never had downtime, performs best for all websites from small blog to large e-commerce websites. I highly Recommend SiteGround.

    I posted about hosting. Found A2hosting. Fact based quick review. Called aaround 8am. Was up at 5am looking over the plans. Call answered fast. Discussed plan needs. Discussed domain transfer. Rep was smart, at sales level, discussed Wordpress. Rep knew of bhw (I'd say that's a good sign). Rep has a/more websites up. A+. Rep went over plans, and transfers. I check speed of sites. Decided to do test name , based on some world wide porn stats I looked at yesterday. Bam.. checked name availabilty moments after the purchase. Fast whois. Holy shit. Had to call my present host this morning. 13 minutes to get anybody at all on phone. Nuff said.

    Siteground is a great hosting, they got by far the best customer support I've ever seen. Prices are solid too and the servers are very stable!

    You are right my friend, they are best, but very costly, after one year you will burn everything for hosting if you can spend then go for it, but remember you will get discount only for one year nor for a long term.

    That's right, I am personally using ovh. Not very happy with it but it's affordable. For underground you definitely need investment.

    I just started using @thcservers and thus far i love it. Performance wise they´re great they´re using Item Xeon processors and all their plan offers SSD (You can get HDD if you need more storage). Regarding Security they offer free SSL certificates as well as Ani DDoS attack protection. And when it comes to Support they offer 24/7 support by Ticket and real time chat. In the short time i´ve been with them i used support like 4 times (yeah i know :p - Thank you guys!), once by email 2 by support ticket and 1 by chat (yeah thats right!) and the response time is incredible, something like less than 10mins to reply through a ticket and a matter of seconds through their chat.
    Lastly about Security im not quite sure about this i believe the domain comes with the WHO IS feature enable already but from their end not quite sure, guess i´ll have to ask maybe they chime in and answer this themselves.
    But overall i was very surprised with them, i spend like a couple of weeks researching on the web and on different marketing forums about the best shared hosting plan and it was between them SiteGround and GreenGeeks thus far im just very happy with my decission. :)

    Big players like Vultr, DO, Linode will match your qualifications.
    Find hosting that offer refund for x days to make sure when you trial and error the system to meet your qualifications. When you are not satisfied just ask for refund. Don't forget to read the term of service before you sign up for the service.

    Hi, I need to choose a reliable web hosting that is good in terms of security, privacy, and support.

    I have narrowed down to these so kindly share your OWN experience if you have used these:

    1. HOSTMANTIS - $7.48 PER YEAR - UNLIMITED DOMAINS AND 20 GB SPACE
    2. HawkHost - $32 for 1 year.
    3. ssdwebsitehosting.co.uk - 19.99 GBP for 1 year - Unlimited domains.
    4. Webhostface - $23.88 for 1-year unlimited domains.
    5. Hostwinds.com

    My usage and requirements - I plan to have around 30+ websites using separate dedicated domains for each with 4-5 pages of contents like multiple long articles and such. So, how much web space should I consider?

    Hostmantis' plan is very eye-captivating with unlimited domains + 20 GB space (still not sure how much space should I go for?) for $7.48 a year. So, can anyone kindly give their honest personal review of the above web hosters if you have used as well as recommend me some within $25 per year hosting?

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you plan to have 30 WordPress websites or static HTML sites? If WordPress, you run a high risk of quickly exceeding the limits on any of those cheap hosting plans, and that would take all your sites offline.

    Even with static sites, if one gets traffic (could just be bot traffic or spammers), then they all might go offline.

    HawkHost is the only host I can recommend from experience. At least they will contact you when you exceed "reasonable" bandwidth limits.

    Don't focus on storage space when looking for hosting; bandwidth restrictions and processing speed is far more important, especially when running multiple sites.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Thanks for the reply.

    I m new to this. What do we need the web space for, plugins? I will barely have some essential plugins and not anything fancy.
    By HTML static sites, do you mean one-page static sites?
    And how much bandwidth should I look for? Unlimited bandwidth?
