Comparison Site Details Web Hosting Services

Looking for a host for your e-commerce site? Willoughby, OH-based FINDaHOST.com has launched as a comparison site for choosing hosting plans.

The operation allows users to compare more than 600 site hosting plans from 275 companies. It also features a Performance Reporter, letting visitors read reviews and ratings of hosting company performance submitted by actual customers of the various companies.

"It's very easy for a host to guarantee uptime. But when it comes right down to it, you never really know how good the service will be until you sign up, pay their setup fee, and transfer the domain," said Craig Rowe, president of CDR Interactive Corp., publisher of FINDaHOST.com. "The user reviews and ratings at FINDaHOST.com allow webmasters and business owners to obtain customer feedback before they publish a Web site on a particular server."

Included in the mix of Web hosting plans described at the site are both large and small hosting companies. Users may search for the availability of SSL, database connections, Cold Fusion and ASP support, shell access, online control panel administration, statistics, FrontPage support and CGI-BIN access.

FINDaHOST.com, backed by advertising, currently claims 50,000 visitors per month from links and search requests. Visitors to the site may subscribe to a monthly newsletter.
