About Web Hosting Secret Revealed (WHSR)

Last updated on 18 September 2018

 

Our Mission

To educate and help our users make the right decision in building and hosting a website.

The hosting market is crowded with thousands of providers and brands – each with different options. Our aim is to clear the smoke screens and get you to the core of the quality and value these companies offer.

To date we have signed up, tested, and reviewed more than 60 hosting companies.

Our Story

Established in May 2008, Web Hosting Secret Revealed (WHSR) provides educational guide and latest consumer info for web hosting shoppers and site owners.

The original site WebHostingSecretRevealed.com was first started in pure blog format, by solo web marketer Jerry Low, to share his personal experience with some hosting companies. Poor Jerry used to be an ill-informed webmaster. He had wasted hundreds of dollars on multiple nasty web hosts; and spent even more nights sleepless to undo his mistake.

He understands how mind-wrecking it is when you are stuck with a bad web host and wishes you don’t have to go thru the same thing – hence this WHSR is born.

WHSR Today

WHSR grew into something much bigger than Jerry anticipated in 2008. The one-man-operation has grown into a small team of developers and writers from six different countries. The site now covers more than 100 hosting brands – in form of reviews and interviews; and has became one of the most popular info source for hosting shoppers.

The WHSR website, now resides at WebHostingSecreRevealed.net, consists of three different sections:

  • “Find A Host” focuses on serving shoppers who are looking for trustworthy web hosting reviews and guide;
  • “Tools” offers free and easy-to-use tools to gather information on web hosting services; and
  • “Resources” offers helpful web hosting, development, and marketing guide.
