In most cases you will only see a top 5 or a top 10, I cannot see I have ever seen a top 100 site list

Can I ask how you are planning to use such a list, if it exists?
What in your mind would put a company on the list? There are tons of aspects to such a service.
To be honest, it's actually quite impossible to create such a list. One thing you will find quickly is that cheapest is not at all the best.
If you do find ANY "Top Host" list or anything similar, 99% of the time it's fake. Those lists are put up by people who get paid from the companies listed, and are almost never the best, not even close.
Again, what are you planning to do with a list like this?
I'm not sure where you can get a list of 100, but every month we put out a list of the top 25 hosting providers registered with us. The lists are done by product so you can see what everyone sells and theyre voted for by the providers' customers so its a pretty accurate review
You get no-brainers in there like RackSpace, HostGator, Superb... people like that with the big customer bases but it also throws up a few smaller companies with really good reps. So its nice to see
What they sell as in volume? Or top 100 hosting companies that are the most relative and used? Its a big difference the big boys like someone said pay to be up there but then again they are the biggest ones. I feel its always better to go with customer reviews, as far as volume I am sure you can find analytics on line that pretty much tell you how much of the market these big companies hold.
All top listings for web hosts are affiliate based, depending on how much the payout is will determine the # the web host has on the list. I've seen as high as top 10/20 but never 100. Probably best to avoid such web sites as they do not have any legitmate reviews.
