JustHost started fresh, and they are just about to hit a decade in service. Being short with years to establish immediate trust from potential clients, JustHost at least compensates by offering very budget-friendly packages, with all inclusive of features to be advantageous for small businesses and for those who are trying to be more serious with an online presence. Learning is also easier with the controls here, and the addition of scripts support and credits can be awesome as well. JustHost takes a good medal for the features, but the support and reliability is still not being fully testified and guaranteed. [see full review]
HostRocket did a good job of maintaining its identity for more than ten years, and their being independent and exclusive may be rewarding to some and discouraging to many. HostRocket does well with cloud VPS services as well outside of the usual shared and reseller hosting services. Together with the offered dedicated servers, all packages are actually priced a bit higher than expected. Too bad such an amount does not include a lot of essential services such as a free domain registration, but the 6-month free offer can be tempting together with the 250 scripts it supports. Lastly, HostRocket is not available with a chat support, and you might want to get your trouble tickets on your desk while waiting for a good response. [see full review]
1and1 is a widely known company that does not only offer web hosting solutions but even website making, marketing, and even bringing up an immediate online presence live with the help of the preset designs and templates plus contents on the fly. Being existent for decades already, the company is continually advertised on the major forms of media which also includes social network marketing. 1and1 offers a real wide range of services and packages, and though the high cost may be justified by the features, customers can still get intimidated by the large differences between packages. Lately, the company is getting too much negative feedbacks about hidden and unstoppable charges despite account suspensions or deletions. Customer support is also said to be incompetent, and the policies are still up for interrogation. [see full review]
InterServer is one of the hosting companies we’ve come across but ironically, the brand isn’t that popular despite the 14-year existence in service. Nevertheless, InterServer is terrific with features without the need to pay that big price. Services include web hosting, VPS and cloud services, quick and dedicated servers, colocation services, and other minor services such as administration and consultation. The company does not guarantee a solid uptime feature, but at least they do well with a good customer service that is highly accessible and approachable. Ultimately, InterServer comes great with a great bunch of specifications, making it one of the most ideal web hosting companies you can learn. [see full review]
iPage offers one of the most standard set of packages for small to medium businesses and even to freelancers and bloggers who may want to showcase their art. Their more-than-a-decade in service already solidified their identity as a valuable web hosting solution to many, and having two data centers plus several headquarters are really impressive. The averagely-priced packages include some more advanced and exclusive features such as an enhanced security suite and an ample amount of credits for advertising. While iPage is short with good testimonies for the chat support they offer, the e-mail support system is nevertheless very respected. [see full review]
IXWebHosting has been a successful company since 1999, and is now catering to half a million number of sites plus more than 100,000 customers across the globe. Their web hosting packages are relatively cheap, but prices get to be higher when you opt for a VPS or cloud hosting service from them. Features are also limited for all the packages, but what they promise is a solid data center available plus a 99.99% uptime guarantee. However, loyal customers have faced critical moments making them opt for another company because of a lot of policy issues and depreciation in the services they offer. [see full review]
BlueHost is among the leading yet the oldest web hosting companies ever alive in service. Started out in 1996, BlueHost offers quality web hosting plans and even dedicated, shared, and reseller hosting packages in a price range low enough for the mass. BlueHost is also the only web hosting company recommended the WordPress, but the capabilities go way far from e-Commerce to impressive database and script support tools. BlueHost is currently challenged by a large amount of customers being funnelled to their systems, making servers being pulled down in speed because of the weight handled by the traffic.

CoolHandle speaks so much about being truly knowledgeable to the field of their expertise for more than 12 years. While they are overlooked as simply a web hosting company in the US, they are actually offering greater VPS services as well with partnerships from CloudLinux and CloudFlare. The rates offered by CoolHandle are relatively high, and the distinctions are quite tempting to go for the most expensive ones. CoolHandle, contrary to popular belief, actually suffers from strong negative feedbacks especially on issues on unattended needs, unresponsive ticket handling, and unfriendly customer service and support.

GreenGeeks might be the number one web hosting company in the US to offer a truly environment-friendly infrastructure and comprehensive web hosting solutions. Though GreenGeeks does not offer dedicated hosting services, they are at least good also with reseller hosting with flexible packages and even VPS hosting. GreenGeeks gains a lot of badges for being eco-certified, and their customer service is among the best features they can offer to clients and potential customers. [see full review]
Omnis has been on the cloud web hosting market for more than 10 years now, and though their plans or packages are short to between a Linux or a Windows one, they are still selling well and continues to prosper especially in name. Omnis also has its own accredited network that relies or takes full advantage of the networking power offered by One Wilshire of LA, California. Omnis scores neutral in features and in customer service, and the lowest points refer to the company’s hidden regulations and policies which should be premeditated by any potential client or customer.
