web host review ninjaJust discovered a great new site called Web Host Review Ninja. The website is pretty much as it appears, a website to submit and review web hosts. It’s a great way to get the back-story on web hosting companies, see what services they offer and get unbiased reviews based on those services.

It also lets you know the difference between different kinds of hosting (Like the difference between shared hosting and VPS).

There are a lot of hosts out there that hide their pricing models, add hidden fees, and constantly pester their clients with upgrades and add-ons. Many hosts now offer monthly hosting as for as cheap as 3 dollars a month, but then to get that price you have to signup for a year and buy everything you need ala cart. So the pricing is really much higher.

Hopefully a site like Web Host Review Ninja can help customers make smarter decisions when it comes to buying web hosting.

If you run a web host or want to add a web host to the directory, it’s free to do so.
