Top 4 Best Web Hosting Services of 2012

If you're looking for a good hosting service for your future website, you have plenty of high-quality options to consider. You could always go with a reliable, popular service like Go Daddy, or you could explore other popular options that are a little less well-known. 2012 has been a good year so far for webmasters and web hosting companies. 

We've seen a lot of small web hosting companies really take off this year, which has given online consumers a larger pool of viable web hosting choices. If you're looking for a home for your new website, here are four of the top web hosting companies you might want to check out:

1. Host Gator
When it comes to Host Gator, you don't get what you pay for. You get much, much more. For just $3.96 a month, Host Gator provides you with access to thousands of free photos, website templates, and web-building tools. Additionally, it also offers complimentary shopping cart software for ecommerce business owners and unlimited bandwidth and disk space. So, with Host Gator, you can make your websites as big and bold as you want.

2. Bluehost
Want a web hosting service that makes setting up your website painless? Try out Bluehost. It costs either $5.95 or $6.95 a month, depending on the length of your membership. Sometimes you can even sign up for $4.95 per month plans with Bluehost when they choose to provide their services on sale. Bluehost offers a variety of perks, including a user-friendly cPanel control panel, instant website setup, expert support staff, and free domain name registration.

3. iPage
Ideal for businesses who don't have any web designers on staff, this web hosting service provides a number of tools to make website creation easier. iPage costs $54 for a one-year membership, $84 for a two-year membership, and $126 for a three-year membership. So, it's definitely affordable. iPage is a small business favorite because of its integration of Google tools like AdWords and Webmaster Tools into its vDeck control panel, and its drag-and-drop site builder that allows for simple, fast web design.

4. Web Hosting Hub
This is another web hosting service that's ideal for businesses, since it lets you register an unlimited amount of email accounts that are associated with your domain name.  Web Hosting Hub only costs you between $3.95 and $5.95 a month, depending on how long your membership lasts. Additionally, unlike many web hosting companies, Web Hosting Hub doesn't charge you a domain registration fee. So, you get the available domain of your choice for free. Web Hosting Hub's highly accessible cPanel control panel and incredibly reliable customer support services also make it a top choice.

You can find the right web hosting service for your needs, whether you're a business owner, blogger, or independent ecommerce merchant. So, investigate the options above, do some research, and enjoy being a webmaster!
