As you can tell by looking at our site we firmly believe that Hostmonster and Bluehost are the best web hosting providers on the web! We believe in these companies so much that we host our sites with these companies. We are not the only people who think this; in fact, 1.9 million people around the world agrees with us! Matt Heaton, co-owner of these great brands, released these Hostmonster & Bluehost stats on his blog (you willl find them astonishing):

Bluehost/Hostmonster/Fastdomain have been wildly successful. I’m so grateful to have been part of this incredible venture. There was and is an ENORMOUS amount of effort put into making our products the best that we know how to make it. Add to that a lot of luck and we get Bluehost and Hostmonster.
Thank you so much to all our loyal customers that tell all your friends to sign up! The vast majority of all our sales come from non affiliate related word of mouth recommendations. That doesn’t happen unless our customers think we are doing a pretty good job. We promise to try our hardest to improve the things that are “good” that should be “great”, and to add the features that you need that no other company will bother to add. That is our promise to you!
