Delhi, India, August 07, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The recently launched service Best Host Rating, available at besthostrating is already being considered to be a very beneficial service to webmasters and general Internet users from all over the world. This website is actually a hosting directory, aimed at solving all kinds of queries webmasters might have about hosting and even help people with other issues, such as server related problems and such.
Best Host Rating follows a forum based pattern. The website has two kinds of forums. The first category is of forums that are related to various hosting services. There are already forums on over 20 major hosting companies from across the world, including GoDaddy, HostGator, HostMonster, FatCow, BlueHost, and Apollo Hosting, 1 and 1 and other popular ones. Each forum is admin controlled and posts are checked for their authenticity. The posts mainly pertain to how these various companies provide their hosting services. The first post is mostly a review of the hosting company that details what a beginner webmaster must know when looking for a good hosting company.
The second category of forums contains common questions that webmasters and general Internet users might have about hosting. There are some very interesting and important hosting issues being discussed in these forums including topics such as the choice between dedicated servers, virtual private servers and co-location services, choosing and booking domain names and related issues, configuring hardware and servers, offers that web hosting companies provide and also a general discussion forum on hosting.
These are places where people can find the right kind of information by asking the right kind of people. Best Host Rating is touted to be a platform to bring amateurs and professionals together. It is also a platform for all competitive hosting companies so that webmasters can choose which of these would be the best suited for their purposes. In case they need any clarification on the web hosting company they are intending to choose, Best Host Rating is also the place where a question can be posted and a definite answer will be available.
Until now, there were several web hosting forums on the Internet, but none of them brought various hosting companies on a mutual ground so that they could be compared and reviewed. Internet users, especially the novices, would find it difficult to post their questions on different forums till they got all the answers they wanted. Best Host Rating proves to be a single collection of forums for all kinds of hosting questions, even information on specific products and services.
In order to post messages on these forums on Best Host Rating, it is not even necessary that a person must be a member of the site. There is a membership facility though, and some forums will need that a person be a member before they can make a post, but a non-member posting feature is also available. Hence, people can get to their answers quicker.
There are some other interesting features that make the website unique. The inclusion of a language feature is one such feature. Using a script, even posts can be translated into other languages. However, not all languages are included currently, but admin can help to get the languages that are lacking. Rules of phpBB groups apply to the forums. Another interesting feature is the ranking system where people who have made posts, either as answers or as new threads, are ranked on the forums. This is a good way of understanding the expertise of a member on the subject. And, if a poster wishes to know what the general consumer viewpoint on a particular hosting software or provider is, then they can post a poll and check out what the other users are thinking about it.
Best Host Rating completes a very significant void on the Internet, which is of getting the right information about host service providing companies and also getting various issues answered pertaining to the subject. This is quite a stumbling block for new webmasters, because they may not be aware which would be the most economical and effective solution for their needs. However, Best Host Rating now ensures that these problems will find an answer straight from people who use and review hosting products.
