    Question who are the top 5(or 10) USA webhosters?

    Hi,

    I currently use http://www.webfusion.co.uk/ to host my website, which is a fan site for the band Mojave 3 (is www.mojave3online.com)

    They are pretty good, except the package I have costs 19.99 UK Pounds per month. I'm pretty sure that this is too high, and I could be paying less for the same? You can see what they offer at http://www.webfusion.co.uk/homeuser-info.shtml , I have the pro account.

    I was wanting to change to a US host... as they usually seem cheaper - and most of my visitors come from the US anyhow.

    Can someone list the top 5 or 10 US hosts, so I can compare prices? I'm not interested in small companys (even though they perhaps offer a great service). I just don't want to risk the hassle.

    Thanks a lot!
    Ed.

    ps. isn't it strange, that the company I'm with - their USA branch offer more for less?? what's up with this??

    I am not sure if you are going to be able to get a list such as the "top 5" as everyone has a different opinion. I suggest researching a couple hosts them coming back and asking about them and if anyone has any rewiews for them. either that or rename the title something like "who is your favorite/best host. good luck

    I know... BUT.. if I ask for everyone's fav. host - then I'd get a 1000 different answers....

    Let me rephrase the question!

    Who are the 5 BIGGEST hosts in the USA?

    I realise that doesn't mean the best - but I'm interested anyhow.

    Hello firend,

    I would suggest you to have a look at web hosting directories such as HostPulse.com [http://www.hostpulse.com ] and click on their top 25.

    Other hosting directories such as WebHostDir.com

    Have a great day!

    haha

    thanks for the comments and links guys.

    in fact, I'm a little happier about my own host now. There prices are expensive - but when comparered to the other 'big boys'... about the same.

    So for the record, if you have the money, and want a good host in the UK - http://www.webfusion.co.uk/ are pretty good.

    I'm gonna keep researching though, because I 'have' to spend less on my webhosting - can't afford to keep the site running any more

    www.hostindex.com might be useful
    they have a "top 25 hosts" list each month.

    edk: check out http://www.valuehost.co.uk/hosting/ I think I'm going to sign up with them today, most of their deals seem to be really decent, feature, speed and price-wise.

    The only worry I have is their 'unlimited' bandwidth offer, but I've been told it's unofficially 30-40GB/mo or around there... and I've been assured it's not really a problem.

    Your paying £200 a year for what valuehost can do for £161 and with more space & features too.
