Web Hosting for 2009
Are you looking for a new web host to host your website(s)? Right now is a great time to pick a new web host. The economy is in bad shape and businesses are competing even harder for your business. The web hosting industry is no different from other markets. Customers are going out of business all over the place or cancel their web hosting to be able to make months end somehow after a layoff.
The Web Hosting Resource Kit monitors the industry and while there are hundreds or thousands of web hosts to work with, we decided a small, honest list of our Top 10 Web Hosts. The advantage with any of these guys is that they are large enough to make it through the recession and eventually even acquire a competitor here and there. Of course that is not a guarantee of survival, but by looking at the cut-throat competition going on the web hosting industry, I am rather with one of these guys knowing my websites stay afloat, than sleeping bad at night with worries about my online ventures.
While the Top 10 List is mainly for shared web hosting, I would like to recommend The Planet .com and Liquidweb for their dedicated servers. I do have a mix between shared hosting / reseller hosting / and dedicated server hosting in my portfolio and those 2 providers should be high on your list for choosing a dedicated server at low pricing with great support behind it.
Anyway – 2009 is upon. The Web Hosting Resource Kit will be here as always. We’re not going anywhere. We hope 2009 will be a great and prospering year for you. From our families to yours – all the best for 2009. Happy New Year 2009.
