The task of finding a new hosting company can be a little overwhelming due to the thousands upon thousands of hosting companies that are operating online.
Web hosting directories can help with this task. They list hundreds or even thousands of web hosting companies by category.
Most of these directories review hosting companies too, though you need to be aware that the integrity of many of these reviews can be questionable. If there is a top ten list of the best hosting companies, you are probably looking at the ten hosting companies that pay the most affiliate commissions, not the top ten hosting companies from a customer’s point of view.
Don’t let this put you off using a web hosting directory as they can be a great starting point for finding your next host.
