The days have grown longer and it seems that everyone has a fresh spring in their steps as warmer weather approaches. Here at WHSR, we try to keep a spring in our steps throughout the year, but April seemed to be a particularly productive month filled with new web hosting reviews for you to explore and some fabulous articles to help you improve your site.

Hosting Reviews

Jerry Low, owner and the brains behind WHSR, spent some time really digging into several hosting companies and providing reviews for them. When Jerry reviews a hosting company, he takes several steps that include trying out the server, testing it, watching its uptime on our WHSR Uptime Monitor and more. You can be sure that you're getting an honest and in-depth review based on first-hand experience. April's reviews included:

  • Netmoly – Jerry gave Netmoly four out of five stars for reasons such as the high quality of features and how well it works for big sites. In particular, Netmoly works well with large ecommerce sites.
  • TMDHosting – TMDHosting got a five out of five in its review. The prices are fairly low and the company offers a variety of hosting plans. It rates five stars because it reaches “blazing fast” speeds.
  • ZeroStopBits – Starting at only $3.50/month, ZeroStopBits garnered a four out of five star review. Reasonable pricing, fast server and good stats for a new host all played into the rating. There were some issues with uptime, but that is likely due to bugs being worked out since they are fairly new. This is one you should definitely consider.

Finding the right web host is always a challenge, but WHSR's reviews help you make a smart, informed decision.
