October 24, 2008 — Web Hosting Review Zone (www.webhostingreviewzone.com) announced it has launched a new free resource website for consumers that compares competing web hosting services.
The website enables people to submit and view customer reviews, comparing the the various competing hosting services using multiple criteria, such as price, features, and software.
Customers can review these areas on a scale of one to ten. After each feature is rated, the company then averages out the different ratings to decide an overall rating for the hosting service.
On its home page, the site features the day’s top 10 web hosts based on multiple independent reviews by certified Internet webmasters, enterprise users, personal users and other e-commerce companies.
The current top 10 list features BlueHost as the highest rated web host, followed by HostGator, IX Web Hosting, HostRocket, HostMonster, PowWeb, EasyCGI, iPower Web, FatCow, and StartLogic.
Web Hosting Review Zone encourages its visitors to look at the reviews to see how their current hosting service compares to the competition.
According to the press release, the site is independently owned and operated, and was “formed in order to provide an impartial reviewing service to the public, offering “unbiased” reviews that will help the general public decide on the right hosting service for them.
However, the site features prominent banner ads for all of its top 10 web hosts, both above and below their individual reviews, which might raise suspicion among some visitors.
