In order to best evaluate the hosting offers out there, we open test accounts at each hosting company in order to review their service. This also allows us to make sure the b2evolution software works well on as many hosting platforms as possible, especially with our b2evolution hosting partners.
Our first selection is done through Web Hosting Tests who tests several hundreds of hosting offers anonymously.
With the best of these hosts, we then set up specific test accounts in order to verify they perform well with b2evolution.
You can check those test sites out for yourself to see how good or not a particular host is, especially in terms of server speed / bandwidth...
Here is a list of public test sites we have set-up:
You may actually wish to check back on these test sites at times that matter the most to you, in order to see if you'll get good server speed at that time of the day. It is often ok to wait a second more for a web page to load, but it gets painful when every page of an administrative interface takes 1 second too long!
