You have to be careful when looking for hosting company reviews. Too many sites do not moderate their reviews so you can’t be sure how real and unbiased they really are. At Hostmarks we manually verify the veracity of all user submitted web hosting reviews. We check to make sure that all reviews are from actual customers of the service they are reviewing so you know they are real.
Most web hosting review sites solicit reviews from anyone prepared to submit a review via their online form. This is good for the review site because they get free review content which (they hope) will help them drive more related traffic. The problem with this approach is that you can’t be sure that any given review is genuine as there are no checks in place to prevent a host submitting their own reviews to improve their position or to stop rivals submitting bad reviews of each other. This may or may not happen, but the point is you can’t be sure. It is also true to say that some really bad review site operators will make up their own reviews just to create the appearance of authority and to set up the particular hosts they would like most to promote.
Here at Hostmarks our promise is to make sure that only genuine reviews from real customers are published. To do this we take the following approach:

Probably because we just havn’t got to it yet. We are a new service and we’ve started with a relatively small list of popular and well known hosts because those are the hosts most people are considering. That’s not to say we won’t cover others. If you would really like to review your host and it isn’t on the list then please contact us.
