About Us

Hosting Tribunal, just like the internet as a whole, is a dynamic place, made of individuals with diverse interests and talents.

This is how we started:

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.

This is where we are now:

We Want to Help People Succeed Online

Organically and naturally, our site evolves. Our hosting reviews were always meant to help people succeed online, be it as a blogger, shopkeeper, or service provider.

We started with evaluating shared hosting plans and then moved on to analyze and rank the best business hosts, the best ecommerce solutions, the best cloud hosting for enterprises…

You get the drill.

Then we thought: besides website hosting, what else do you need to run a business online? You need to register it, create a workflow, manage its inventory, have efficient bookkeeping, and so forth. You also need tools to optimize your content and design, have legally binding terms of service, and much more.

Creating a business and successfully developing it takes a lot of time and effort, but it is much more achievable with the right tools at hand.

That’s why we began exploring and reviewing services that build a powerful toolset to succeed in any online endeavor.

It still takes a lot of planning, careful yet daring execution, and a slice of luck but at least you can start the most exciting journey of your life properly equipped!


Web Hosting & Software Marketing 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.

The same holds true for many other software companies.

Our solution

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

our dolution
We use affiliate links from all hosting and software providers, review to level the playground and to have the same incentive across the board
our dolution
Our hosting and software rankings are based on real-time data
our dolution
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 software and web hosting reviews.
