    Hi there, I was looking for the webhosting service and I have found this site and saw a comparative review of the best hosting services in the web: http://www.hosting-buyers-guide.com/re/2005midphase/ and according to their review this hosting service is no1. Can anyone give me some feedback about this company? Hoping for your feedbacks. Thanks a lot.

    More often than not you should take those review sites with a pinch of salt.

    Run some dns checks on the review sites and 9/10 times you will find that the host thats top is also the owner or host of the review site.

    The other 1/10 probably "sell" that top spot to the highest bidder.

    Dont get me wrong, there is genuine review sites out there but theyre very rare.

    But as chirpy said, webhostingtalk.com is your best source of information for potential hosts as the majority of the reviews there come from users such as yourself and as such tend to be unbiased.

    Good luck with your search.

    9 times out of 10, the "number 1" host that is listed at some review website is simply the web host who is offering the highest affiliate sales.

    In other words, if you click the review link, and then signup for web hosting with the host... the person who owns the "review" website makes a large chunk of money because they referred you to the host.

    In other words, the review websites are a scam. They are just advertising websites.

    You are better to go to www.webhostingtalk.com, register for an account, and then ask for advice and reviews on the web host you desire to use. Be sure to also use the SEARCH button and search for old reviews.

    :)
