Who Do Rockstar Bloggers Host With?

Who Do Rockstar Bloggers Host With?

I’ve said it before: trying to compare web hosting is a PITA.

One strategy to shortlist hosts is to look at who your competitors are using. For example, if you’re running a site powered by dating site script eMeeting, you need a host that supports Ioncube.

Who Is Hosting This.com does what it says on the tin: tells you which webhost any site is using.

It’s not 100% accurate – some major hosts appear as the company they lease servers from (often larger hosts like The Planet). But it’s a damn fine ready reckoner.

Along these lines, the site today publishes a breakdown of who A-list bloggers host with.

PS. Another interesting read for bloggers: “Why Blog Publishing ‘Failed’ in the UK”

Update October 2008: WhoIsHostingThis.com has relaunched with a new look and feel, improved results, hosting reviews and hosting coupons.

    Stevepavlina’s blog is hosted by ServInt, but that script redirects you to Google, not servint and not another hosting company?

    @Dan – Servint appear under SMV, it’s already on my hitlist to fix as I host with Servint too. Any host names that aren’t recognised send users to a Google search for the name.
