Really when you look at it in a logical view, most if not all the host offer pretty much the same things, give or take a few. Perhaps the easiest way to know that a Webhost is really as good as everyone is saying, or claiming on their sites, is to look at 2 things.
1. How long have they been in business?
2. Domains Hosted to date.
These 2 simple statistics should tell you what kind of experience they have, and also how many people are getting their sites hosted by them. If they have been in business for sometime, then they will have much valued experience, and have probably encountered most of the problems one would expect from being a server. The amount of Domains hosted tells a story as well! If the host didn’t offer a complete package that really provided great service to a customer, do you think they would have so many clients? NOPE!
So if you look at these 2 overlooked statistics, you should be able to find exactly what you’re looking for! It’s funny as most websites/blogs that promote or review web host, say nothing about these 2 statistics
