The Best Web Hosting Companies in the US

By Gregory Trune

There are several criteria that must be closely reviewed by any web hosting review groups or companies before they should finally release their own best hosting companies of the year. Usually, the price, popularity, performance, features and support quality are the basic criteria. Popularity and price might be easy to find out but performance and feature will need sufficient time and technical knowledge. Each category or criteria somehow differs when it comes to reseller hosting, dedicated hosting, collocation web hosting, cloud hosting, and shared web hosting. In terms of programming services support, technical people are very much concerned if the webhosting site is capable of supporting PHP, MySQL, Python, Perl and FrontPage. Take a look on these ranking made by a certain review company and see it for your self if the reviews are really true or not.

BlueHost is founded by Matt Heaton in 1996. With over 20,000 square feet of data center space that they fully own, consumers who will start at $6.95 per month will surely feel the difference in speed and flexibility of their 24/7 outstanding support. They have support hold times that are under 30 seconds and this rate can be considered as one of the fastest in terms customer response. Every customer will surely be satisfied with their free Control Panel Demo software.

There are lots of options on this tool where you can experiment into before availing any of their plans. The tools where you can test and simulate almost anything about your website to be lunched are the email, files, logs, security, databases, software and SEO tools. And if you want to protect your website from any offending application threats and viruses over the internet, BlueHost's VPS protection is there to help you.

HostGator has three very affordable web hosting plans for you to choose from. These are the Hatchling Plan at $3.96 per month, the Baby Plan at $6.36 per month, and the Business Plan at $10.36 per month. All of these have unlimited disk space and bandwidth to offer to every interested client. HostGator has 750 employees whom are maintaining their over 5 million hosted domains under the 24/7/365 monitoring scheme.

Rank#4: JustHost : This web hosting company has offices in US, UK and Australia. At $4.45 per month for its 4 years subscription plan, you can have that free domain forever. With their quad processor performance servers, you can surely see the big difference of the 400 Gigabits transfer per second rate when you compared them with the transfer speed of other webhosting companies. JustHost supports PHP 5 and MySQL 4+/5+ web hosting.

If you want hassle-free web hosting, WebHostingPad's Power Plan and Power Plan Plus are there to fulfill your requirements. These offers could be rare as an astounding $1.99 per month plan is nothing but an almost free web hosting service. However, this is just only a limited promo. If you want a long term web hosting partner, then grab the 4 years or the 5 years Power Plan offers. Sound very interesting is their landing page statement "Every Web Hosting plan includes over $500 at Free Add-on Features". Name it and they've got it all for you: free script delivery, free marketing credits and e-commerce ready.

Falling on ranks number 6 to 10 are EasyCGI, GreenGeeks, SiteCloud, HostUpon and Yahoo! Small Biz, respectively. The monthly fees of these best hosting companies of the year are in between $5 to $8 only. Now that you already know the companies that have the best performance on the basic and technical criteria, the selection of the best web hosting company for your requirements should also be easy for you.
