While there are always speculations on who’s a better web host, the truth is that each webhost is good enough in its own respect. Its about what you, as a webmaster need in a host that need to be answered first before going for the best host.
An industry leading, highly reviewed host might not be required for a beginner blogger, at the same time, a typical hosting package may not be required for a budget conscious webmaster. Each website based on its content require a custom hosting environment in my opinion.
For instance a website that has lot of videos streamed might need a host with higher bandwidth while a blog with WordPress need a host with higher memory. So, the hosting environment is heavily dependent on the site nature.
And, that’s not what I actually wanted to say here
This is about a nifty tool that might be of help to people who’re looking for hosting space for their blogs/websites.
Instead of going blindly for any industry reviewed host, one can now find out what is a popular webhost to similar sites like yours. For instance, if you’re planning a blog like this one, you might want to select the host I’m on, or someone else like this blog is on. When you research, see if more than a couple of webmasters are using the same host. If yes, that is a clear signal that your website might also need the same. However, make sure that you look for similar websites as you’rs/plan to create.
Well, the tool is Whoishostingthis.com. Go there and type in the websites name of which you want to find out who the host is, and it gives you the answer in seconds !
