Problems with choosing a web hosting for your website:

1. Biggest wallet always wins - Too many hosting reviews are wrecked by affiliate commission.

2. Too many fake user reviews - hosting companies hire fake reviewers to work for them (or work against their competitors).

3. Too many choices - there are literally tens of thousands of hosting companies to choose from. People have their own preferences and needs - which make their recommendations not-so-useful (see images).

I am sure many of you have the same issues - which is why I am happy to see the born of - a new project by my friend from Malaysia - Jerry Low. :up:

HostScore is a new, data-driven way to measure the quality of a web host.

It’s a site worth sharing here because:

1. Transparency - Their host ranking algorithm and business relationship with other companies are published openly.

2. Data Driven - HostScore system is designed in a way where the owner will only have 20% saying power in the final ratings.

3. Consistency is measured - Many hosting reviews were done based on testing in a short period, which is not ideal. HostScore monitor hosting performance regularly. Server response speed is measured every 4 hours from 10 locations, up-time is measured every 5 minutes.

4. Verified user reviews only - only publish and count reviews from manually verified users (using LinkedIn or Facebook). So you’ll get less chance bumping into zombie reviewers there. 

Jerry would like to hear about your experience in choosing a web host and opinions about

Thus I am starting this thread. :bih:
