Hello. Welcome to Web Hosting Secret Revealed (WHSR)!
Established in May 2008, WHSR is a blog/site specially designed for those who are looking for reliable hosting reviews and practical web development guides.
Like many other mom-and-pop sites, WHSR is first started (and run) by a single person – me, the founder Jerry Low. I used to be a victim of several different bad hosting companies (eg. Network Eleven – the worst, Gate.com, Apollo Hosting… etc) and I knew exactly how much hassles and money it takes to get unstuck. A bad host is more than just crappy servers or lousy after-sales services, it will steal your money and even rob your business before you know it – I have been thru all that and I don’t want you to be the next victim.
This explains why WHSR got established in the first place.
In this page, you’ll find out why you should trust our hosting reviews and who are the superstars writing at WHSR.
How Our Hosting Review System Works?
At WHSR, web hosting providers are reviewed from the inside. This means our reviews are written based on our true experience.
We spent tremendous volume of time and money on new hosting signups and testing. As a reader, you will get lots of internal information to assist your judgement, details such as:
- Server uptime (is the web host reliable?)
- Signup process (was is smooth and easy?)
- Website setup (was the CMS installation easy?)
- Control panel features (is it good?)
- After sales support (are the support staffs friendly and knowledgable?), and so on.
Web hosting providers are also rated based on a simple five-star-rating system in our reviews – with 5 stars being the best and 0 star the worst. It’s kind of a review summary for busy readers who need some quick opinion opinion. Do learn more about our web host rating system in Review Policy Section.
