How We Test Web Hosts.
Our testing is thorough and comprehensive. It's also ongoing.
FindMyHost has two programs for helping consumers searching for a web host: Approved Hosts and Guaranteed Hosts.
All Web Hosts who apply for our
Approved Hosts program are tested by the FindMyHost staff. Our
staff signs up a real web hosting account and puts the Web Host
through their paces. If they claim to have 24 hour technical
support, we pick up the phone and call them at 3am in the morning.
If their servers go down for any length of time during our testing,
we know about it.
