You’ve probably never heard of HostOnion hosting. Neither have I initially. That’s a shame. Because while they’re not as ‘internet famous’ as BlueHost or HostGator, they claim to boast speeds of up to 20X faster. In addition, they make claims of ‘99.9% uptime’ and ‘guru support’. (OK, now it’s just sounding too good to be true.)
So what’s the verdict?
A blazing fast host with amazing uptime and great support? Or another company who’s great with adjectives, but can’t back it up with performance (hint: iPage & Arvixe)? To test for ourselves and provide an unbiased HostOnion hosting review, we bought their cheapest “Shared Plan” back in 2017 and set up a basic WordPress website.
