Hi 👋 I’m Lisa! I’m a freelance web developer travelling the world and I have been building websites (mostly WordPress powered ones like this one) for small business owners for the last 5 years or so.

Because every website needs web hosting I have come across many web hosting service providers over the years. Some have been good, most have been not so good and a few have been outright terrible.

This here website is a collection of my personal and honest reviews* of a couple of web hosts I have worked with the most, and have most experience dealing with. Namely Bluehost, InMotion Hosting and SiteGround.

* honest, unbiased and bull💩-free reviews of web hosting services I have actually used.
