The Future Of Website Hosting

I am fairly disappointed with the service I have received from CirtexHosting. There is only so much you can expect for around $60 a year, but the inconsistency of the service is beyond reasonable.

Web hosts often overload their servers by stuffing many accounts on one single server. Some servers have over 250 – 350 accounts on them. Imagine 350 people trying to use one computer in a store at the same time. It is nearly impossible, right? This is the basic concept that shared website hosting companies apply today. Things are going to go wrong.

You get what you pay for. That is true in so many ways in life. This is true with website hosting. The point is that if anyone is going to be creating a website that is intended on making money, please make a decent investment on a reliable webhost. Do your research. Check out HostJury, which I believe to be an honest resource for hosting reviews. A webhost offering 5GB of storage for $50 a month will in all likelihood be substantially more reliable than a webhost that offers 500GB for the same price.

I will be switching away from CirtexHosting to something more reliable for Tech In Demand. I’m considering Site5, Steadfast Networks, A Small Orange, and SYN Hosting. If anyone has any suggestions or personal experiences with web hosts, I will be glad to hear/read them. Please leave a comment about your experiences with web hosts.
