Web Hosting Matrix (Research Data)

The table below shows an in-depth comparison of several well-known web hosting companies. For each of them we used the entry level hosting plan (basic package) as basis for comparison. Most companies also offer upgraded (more expensive) plans.

We have set our standards on data collection very high. Due to the extreme depth of the data we research for each webhost and the time it takes to keep this data up to date, we are starting with a comparison of 15 major web hosting companies. We ambition to add more over time. (Bookmark this page! :)

In order to present an unbiased view of the market and allow you to make your own opinion, the table below contains just the raw facts. If you'd also like to see our take on each of these offers, please use the view switcher below:
