    Looking for review websites

    I've recently been having looking for a new web host and have gotten some suggestions. Now that I have these suggestions, I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of a web site the will give me a review of the hosting companies.

    Well, you are in the best place already. Just do a search for the company name on these forums: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/search.php?s=

    Thank you. I didn't know you could search like that.

    You won't get as many hits, but I also find groups.google.com a good place to find anecdotal opinions... Of course, a large shaker of salt is recommended along with that... but then for pretty much any review resource other than Consumer Reports you have to consider the source.

    and save yourself from some web hosting review sites that rank web hosts on basis of money they get from these hosts...

    findmyhosting.com has alot of reviews

    the problem with searching this forum is you may have to dig deep...... because every time someone asks for a review people just tell them to search

    In addition to review sites that have alreday been mentioned, here are a few more

    http://www.hostsearch.com/reviews.asp (type co. name in for reviews)

    http://www.findsp.com/Hosting/Reviews/ReviewSearch.asp?

    You can also visit other forums and take advantage of the "search" button that they all have, and search by company name and see if any "feedback" results.

    http://hosthideout.com
    http://forums.webhostdir.com

    Go to google.com and type co. name in for results.

    The list can really go on and I would *highly* recommend narrowing down some choices and then contact potentials with some pre-sales questions, etc.
    Check the host website for user reviews onsite AND follow up!

    If you are looking for direct quotes from actual companies then the host quote button on top of the forum will request offers from paid members. You might also try www.************** which is free to consumers.

    Good Luck!
