WPShout has announced the return of their webhosting review for 2013. Unlike other hosting reviews, this one contains no affiliate links and has user submitted data.
It’s over two years since the inaugural Hosting Review, and it’s now time to update the results with some fresh data. A lot has changed in the last two years: managed hosting is now all the range, the cost of basic shared hosting has fallen and some innovative solutions have popped up to power enterprise-level hosting.
The idea here is simple. Below you’ll find a survey in which you can fill in some details about your host(s). I’ll then collate all that data into a set of recommendations which will be published here on Shout. Collectively, we can create a community and data driven review of the best WordPress hosts.
While the first run in 2011 had over 250 responses, the goal is to push that amount even higher. The more people who truthfully respond to this survey, the better the data will be for everyone. The survey will be open until July 14th where the responses will be tabulated and shared with the public. It will be interesting to see how many results this year will be from folks on managed WordPress hosting accounts such as WPEngine or DreamPress.
