About Us

We want to make the hosting industry better!

We are a handful of geeks who want two things: to dabble with the latest technologies and to help web hosting companies improve their services. We get to do the former in the service of the latter. We subscribe, test and play with the newest hosting technologies to create detailed, impartial reviews, and we are eager to give praise where praise is due and express constructive criticism whenever the best website hosting services are found lacking.

Web Hosting Is a Cutthroat Business

Web hosting is one of the most fiercely competitive business niches nowadays. In many cases, this leads to innovation and progress, but it also leads to poor practices, deceitful marketing campaigns and lack of transparency.

Behemoths like GoDaddy and EIG dominate the market and often new players find it hard to break through, even if their offerings are worth it.

To complicate the matters further, many companies outright pay to get the most favorable web hosting reviews out there.

Our solution

While we use affiliate links, we approach all web hosts equally because:

We use affiliate links from all hosting providers we review to level the playground and have the same incentive across the board

Our hosting rankings are based on real-time data

The final rating includes the reviews from the end-users which helps to remove personal bias and subjectivity as a factor

Because of this unique mix and thanks to our technical expertise, we create detailed, impartial and unbiased web hosting reviews.

Additional details about the review process can be found here.

The Team Behind

Unaware that life beyond the internet exists, Nick is poking servers and control panels, playing with WordPress add-ons and helping people get the hosting that suits them. You can reach him at nick@hostingtribunal.com.
