    Web Hosting Directories- Are they helpful?

    Hi guys,
    I was wondering, how effective do you find web hosting directories? Do the new users really trust the rating of WHD for web hosting companies?.

    I always preferred word-of-mouth, but directories are a good second-best if none of your friends are web-nerds

    I think webhosting directories are helpful to compare the prices and plans of various host so that we can accordingly make a choice.

    Yes I think web hosting directories are quite helpful for those who are searching for comparisons on hosting companies and also a good opportunity to research the reliability and creditability of the company.

    Re: Web Hosting Directories- Are they helpful?

    Web hosting directories can be good if you know beforehand what features you need. i have found some of their reccomendations to be somewhat Biased though.
    word of mouth is one of the best solutions but what is great for your friend may not be for you.
