This site was originally started by Lisa back in 2016. This is her own words as to why she decided to launch this website:
For the last five years or so I have been building websites for clients, mostly small businesses, all around the globe. Web hosting services, bad web hosting I should say, have always been something that has bothered me. I have come across many different not-so-good web hosts over the years.
I mean how hard can it be? You’re a hosting company and you basically rent out space on your servers for people to use to host their websites on. Your only job is to keep the servers online and running, to keep the on-button ON, c’mon how hard can it be. But no, your servers go down and oops so do the websites you’re supposed to keep online.
With this website, I want to help others to learn from the mistakes I’ve made when it comes to getting web hosting.

How is Website Hosting Rating funded?
Our website is reader-supported. When you purchase a service or a product through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission (find out what this is here).
This website is supported by our readers, like yourself! If we help you find a service or product that you like, and you choose to sign up with them via our link, then we get paid a commission. Read our affiliate disclosure page here.
Why do we do this? Firstly, and the most obvious reason. Because we’re running a business. But also, it allows us to avoid doing banner intrusive (and annoying) advertisements.
Does this affiliate relationship impact the ratings and reviews? No, never. Our affiliate relationships do no influence the reviews and ratings on this site.
Why are we disclosing this? We believe in transparency on the Internet, plus we want to be honest and upfront with our visitors.
Does this mean you have to pay more? Not at all. On the contrary because in some cases we’ve put together a deal or two with some web hosts that help our readers save money.
As a small business, we understand the importance of funding. That is why we like to help people in developing countries finance their small business ideas. We believe the best way to do this is through Kiva.org.
Kiva is a non-profit organization that enables people from all over the world to lend money to low-income entrepreneurs and students in 77 countries across the globe for as little as $25. You can read more about the projects we have funded on our Kiva page.
