PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO RECEIVE COMPENSATION FOR LISTING WEB SERVICES ON THIS PAGE THOUGH WE MAKE EVERY ATTEMPT TO ENSURE THE FACTS BELOW ARE TRUE BASED ON OUR TEAMS RESEARCH.

bluehost

We love Bluehost! In our opinion (and many will agree), Bluehost provides the most complete web hosting solution. Some web hosting plans are inexpensive but slow. Some are fast but have poor customer service. From past experience, we feel that Blue Host offers 5 star service through and through – very reliable, affordable pricing (not the cheapest but very competitive at $6.95/month), unlimited storage, superb customer service, and their cPanel login is amazingly easy to use.

For those of you who know that Bluehost is for you, they also offer cheaper monthly rates the longer you sign up with their company:

* 36mo. term: $3.95/mo.
* 24mo. term: $4.95/mo.
* 12mo. term: $5.95/mo.

We are still in the process of finalizing our Top 10 list so come back again soon to see who makes the best of the best. If you’re in a rush, go to Bluehost. You surely won’t be disappointed.

Before you look at the rankings, please do know that we are partners with most of the companies below and do get compensated for reviews that write. However, we do feel that what we say below is true in terms of quality, price, and customer service response.

The remaining Top 10 list (quick view) are as follows:

1) Bluehost – cheap yet reliable, superb customer service, excellent guidance. Only $6.95 (or less when signing up for longer time commitment)
2) GreenGeeks – $4.95/month. Eco-friendly, green web hosting.
3) Web Hosting Pad – special offer of $1.99/month. That is dirt cheap.
4) InMotion Hosting – reliable performance.
5) Just Host– $3.75/month. Cheap but a little slower (performance) than the others.
6) Lunar Pages – secure, hardly goes offline.
7) Fat Cow – self proclaimed #1 small business hosting.
8) iPage – unlimited storage and bandwidth. Also very cheap at $3.50/month. Not the fastest in the bunch.
9) Host Rocket – neat Site Builder is part of the monthly package. Great for beginners.
10) Host Gator – as reliable and customer friendly as it gets. Moving on up the list. With new features coming soon, it is poised to move up to the top two.
