About Hosting Rating
To create a website, you need a domain (you will receive it for free from all the companies listed below) and hosting (you can choose it after examining this hosting rating). Hosterius.com contains the best providers that will allow novice bloggers, experienced webmasters and companies to place on the Internet a website of any complexity – from a simple WordPress blog to a high-traffic portal or a large online store.
All providers in the list have an office, 24-hour support, and some have their own data center and the status of an accredited domain registrar. Read more about how we test hosting – we spent the huge amount of time so that you could choose the best hosting. We tried all the companies personally, and we continue to use some of them for many years.
In the table above, hostings are compared by more than 20 criteria. Above the table there is a search bar in which you can enter the service or option you are interested in (for example, “free trial”, “free SSL”, “control panel”, “WordPress”, etc.). So, it is much more convenient to compare hosting on the request you need.
