About Us - Rated Web Hosting
Welcome to Rated Web Hosting, one of the most wide-ranging web hosting review sites.
At Rated Web Hosting, we are committed to providing individuals, online entrepreneurs and web developers with honest, accurate and in-depth reviews on the best web hosting companies available on the market today and we do so using 100s of hours of extensive customer research.
What makes us different from other hosting review websites is that we DO NOT promote poor performing web hosting companies that others promote as the best in the market.
We only promote web hosting providers who we could recommend to friends or family members. If a hosting provider does not meet this criteria, you will not find it on our website, unlike other review websites.
Our aim is to save you time and money by helping you make the right decision on your web hosting choice.
We understand that no two businesses are the same and that different customers have different hosting needs. So we have spent 100s of hours researching and verifying the web hosting market to bring you the best of the best and help you choose the right web hosts for your particular website.
Rated Web Hosting does not simply recommend others recommendations, but we carefully select those web hosting companies who strive for excellence so that you can make a more informed decision

Rated Web Hosting Six Stage Criteria
There are many things to consider before buying web hosting for your website. Will it work for you? Does it offer the customer support you need? Can it guarantee 99% server uptime? We cover all of these points in our six stage criteria to give you a complete overview of the most important factors of Web Hosting.
At Rated Web Hosting, we only recommend those web hosting companies we would purchase ourselves, and so we remain objective throughout our reviewing process.
Positive customer reviews are a key component to any web hosting review, but as they change all the time, we need to stay one-step ahead. To keep our reviews current and up-to-date, we constantly research the internet for the latest independent positive customer reviews and ‘real life’ user opinions, and combine them to give you a clear overview of each web host and their current positioning in the web hosting market.
Whether you are just starting out with your first website or an experienced web developer, professional customer support is vital.
The web hosting companies in our portfolio do not outsource their customer support to call centers, but employ a team of skilled web hosting professionals with years of experience to ensure a friendly and competent support is always available to answer your web hosting questions. Many customer support agents will help you with setup and technical issues too, so if there is anything that you cannot resolve on your own, you just need to pick up the phone or send an email.
There are so many different web hosts to choose from, that deciding the right web hosting company for your website can be a difficult task, but you can make the whole process easier by creating a list of ‘key features’ that are important to you.
When preparing your list of key features, think about things such as customer support, a 99 percent server uptime guarantee, regular automatic server backups, usability, security and value for money, all of these features are important to the success of your website, but some will be more relevant to your particular website than others are.
There is no doubt about it; speed is a key factor in the success of your website. We live in a fast-paced world and people do not like to wait for slow loading web pages, so the world’s biggest search engines like Google take site speed into consideration, penalizing slow loading sites and rewarding fast loading sites with higher rankings.
At Rated Web Hosting, we only select those web hosting companies with fast, reliable and efficient server speeds that optimize the performance of your website.
At Rated Web Hosting, we understand the importance of server stability and uptime, and so we only recommend those web hosting companies who offer a guaranteed uptime – which usually ranges between 99.9% and 100%.
If your website is not online, you will lose visitors, lose revenue, and lose the Google, Bing and Yahoo! rankings you have worked so hard for, so we believe your web hosts must go that extra mile by guaranteeing both server stability and uptime.
Rated Web Hosting is committed to finding you the very best hosting companies that offer the perfect combination of service and stability at value for money prices.
We all like a bargain, but a few £ / $ / € can make a huge difference between a good web hosting company and an outstanding web hosting company, so we have carefully researched the market to ensure the web hosts in our portfolio provide real value for money and a complete range of services to suit every website owner.
