4 Things Your Web Host Doesn’t Want You To Know

Looking for a web host for your website? Ever feel like some of the things being promised are far fetched? Check this list to see if your host has done this to you! And if they have: run, don’t walk.. get far far away! There are plenty of web hosts in the market to not waste your time and money with the bad ones.

1. WE OFFER TERABYTES OF SPACE.. ALL FOR $1.. WE PROMISE!

You’ve seen all the offers.. tens of thousands of gigabytes.. thousands of terabytes.. all for just a few dollars. Think it’s too good to be true? Well, it is. How do you think the hosts afford all that space? It’s a simple trick that is known as “overselling” in the web hosting world. Hosts sell 100x-1000x more space then they actually have hoping you don’t use it. And what happens if you start using it? Well if you read their terms of service, most of these hosts control your account based on cpu usage. At the same time, “file storage” isn’t allowed. So as soon as you upload more than 1gb, or get more then a few thousand visitors on your site, you will find your site gone. Of course none of the hosts want you to know this, so they hide it in confusing fine print and terms of service aggreements. I hate to say it, but mom & pop might have been right… if it’s too good to be true, it probably is a scam.

2. WE HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR DECADES.

I find it funny how several well known hosts claim to have been around for “decades”. Another one boldly states “In Business since 1988″. I hate to break it to you guys, but there wasn’t really such a thing as web hosting back then. I’ve been involved in the hosting industry almost since the beginning, and I know for a fact there weren’t any $5/mo hosts around in the 1980′s. Before believing a hosts claim, check the whois on the domain and see when they registered it. The funny part is that most hosts that claim to be more than 10 years old haven’t been around more than a 1 year! Obviously they don’t want you to know this, so do your due diligence and make sure you don’t get scammed by a fly-by-night host.

3. WE HAVE OUR OWN DATACENTER – THOUSANDS OF SQ FEET

Face it, no matter what web host you go to, their site has pictures of huge datacenters, thousands of servers! Unfortunatly, most web hosts are just “re-sellers”. Just people with some spare time that rent some space on someones server for $20/mo and try to re-sell the space to a 100+ people. Best way to check? Ask for the address and other information on their datacenter. The trick here is that many hosts will give you the information of their providers datacenter (who they are renting from!), but if you are persistent enough and dig around you should be able to dig up the truth.

4. OUR HOSTING IS ONLY $5/MO – BUT YOU HAVE TO SIGN UP UNTIL 2050.

I don’t know what it is these days, but web hosting used to follow the logic of “what you see is what you get”. Now you have everyone advertising plans for $5/mo, but when you get to their website you find out it’s $20/month! What’s the deal?? Well it turns out that you need to sign up for 2 years, 3 years or even 5 years to get the “$5/mo”. Is it just me, or is that not $5/mo? That would be $300/5years, not $5/mo! The worst part is that you usually don’t realize a host is doing this until you get to the final part in the check out. Do your research! Make sure when they say $5/mo, they mean $5/mo! Not $300 for 5 years divided by 60!

Using HostSEO.org to Dominate Search Engine Results

SEO hosting is the most important tool for a webmaster who wants to improve search engine rankings through link building. Typically, when webmasters link up their own websites to each other, they do so through a single IP address. This can prove to be very problematic for link building due to the nature of the search engine spiders. These spiders will often times either ignore or assign lower value to inbound links from domains located on the same IP address. As such, webmasters who own multiple domains are constantly seeking new ways to link up their websites without running into the issue of devalued links. One method of doing that is through SEO hosting services such as HostSEO.org.

HostSEO.org allows you to host your domain on one server with different unique c-class IP’s, making the search engines identify those domains as owned by different people. Having the search engines think your websites are unique and different means you get all the SEO benefits of link building without compromising any link juice. While this does not necessarily provide you with more links from your websites, this does ensure that the links between your websites are considered inbound links from outside sources. If you have several PR5 websites all linking to each other, hosting them on separate c-class IP addresses will allow them to pass their full link juice to your other websites. This will provide you with an array of high quality backlinks, elevating your website to higher search engine positions and increasing both visibility and traffic.

HostSEO.org additionally ranks as one of the best SEO hosting services. As one of the fastest growing hosting companies with over 5,000 people currently using their services, HostSEO.org offers 99.9% uptime with a 30 day money back guarantee. HostSEO.org’s reliable service is backed by a 24/7 help desk and 8 hour live chat service manned by a helpful and knowledgeable staff. In fact, HostSEO reviews from ReviewGuru.com stand at an impressive 97% Excellent score.

What makes HostSEO exceptional is the fact that not only do they provide superior hosting services, but their prices are also incredibly competitive with hosting services of lower quality. Starting at prices as low as $13/month, HostSEO allows you to experience the results of SEO hosting without the financial burden. Testimonial from a satisfied customer said HostSEO was far superior to HostGator, a claim that many other web hosting services can only dream of. As a subdivision of T35 Hosting, one of the largest web hosts in the world, HostSEO provides reliable servers that allow your site to load faster without any downtime.

Creating back links is the most effective way to improve search engine ratings. HostSEO.org lets you mount a very effective link building campaign for your websites from unique c-class IP addresses without being hindered by major search engines.
