Welcome! Here, you can find the research archives of Hosting Data. Our goal is quite simple - assisting UK citizens in creating their own online blogs, small (or large) businesses, and having their websites run as efficiently as possible.

A number of years ago, while working on a project for a client, we realised there simply weren't enough valuable resources to help people build their own websites.

Our reviews range from lesser-known services to the most popular ones. However, we do our best to provide the most objective opinion for each product we review. Furthermore, all the results are available live on our uptime tracking page.

To learn more about how we test these services and our overall process, please visit Hosting Data testing hub.

Our Research Includes

  • Uptime/Downtime Live Tracking
  • Speed Analysis from Multiple UK Cities
  • Individual Web Statistics and Growth Data
  • Known Security Issues and Potential Vulnerabilities
