WHCompare.com is mostly a comparison website for comparing features, prices and resources for web hosting plans quickly and easily. There is a jungle out there with so many hosts, and each with so many plans, that it can be confusing and hard to find the best value plans from different hosts and compare them to each other on the same web page. That is our mission to make possible.
The web hosting plan reviews
We mainly base our reviews for each plan off the information (prices, features, data centers, support, and more) that is available on the official host’s websites and the information we get by asking questions to their support. However, we do want to add information about our experience as a customer to each host in the future.
For now though, the reviews and ratings are mostly based on publicly available information. We do believe that information found on the websites, with added information from provided by each web host support team, are good enough for making a good decicion when choosting a host.
All of the ratings for the web hosting plans are based on the information that we share on this website. You youself or your business may have a different opinion on how important each feature, price etc are for each plan. Therefor a plan we have rated 70% may be 95% to you, or vice versa.
Top rated plans
The best web hosting plans (based on the features/price and our opinion) rated between 90% and 95% will display a prize icon. Plans rated 95% to 100% display a prize icon with a star. This is to reward the highest rated plans with something that sets them apart. Please do not confuse this with actual rewards!
Our current reviewers
Lars A. Blomquist started working as a web designer in 2008 and that was also the same year when he first became a web hosting customer. That was with the popular company SiteGround. Since then he have had many different websites (20+) hosted with many different companies (7). He has been a Hostgator customer with several different plans for years, before moving on to Hostwinds which currently is his favorite.
However, after writing about all of the hosts here on WHCompare.com he believes that his next web hosting companies will be Liquid Web because of their reported heroic support suitable for mission crital sites and Cloudways because of the large amount of features and for advanced cloud tech made easy.
