What We Believe
Our goal is simple: to help and assist people from the United Kingdom find the right hosting company for their website so they can then use that website to its full potential.
There are so many things to consider – Where do you put a website? What’s a domain name? How much will hosting cost?
We’re here to answer those questions. We aim to provide helpful, comprehensive, and inspiring content covering the fundamentals of hosting a website online, completely free.
How It Started
Why Host Advisor
We decided to start the Host Advisor website to provide information targeted to a UK audience. After many years of using different web hosting companies for ourselves and our clients, many failed to live up to their sales hype. From regular downtime to non-existent support, overpriced services and poor page loading speed, We’ve seen it all!
So we know what to look for in a hosting plan and why choosing a good host is fundamental in creating a successful business online.

Host Advisor comprises four experts who have been building websites for customers based in the UK for the last 12 years. We love building websites and pushing businesses forward, and between us have an array of experience in web hosting, web design and development.

Sharing What We’ve Learnt
When we say we offer impartial advice, this is precisely what we do. We never take compensation in exchange for positive coverage, and host providers will never have a say in how we rate the products we review.
All web hosting providers go through the same in-depth testing, ensuring that all the results you see are directly comparable, with no favouritism or bias.
You can find out more about how we conduct our research into web host providers here.
It’s important to us to find as much research as we can, along with our own hands-on experiences when resources permit. That way, you, our readers, can make the best, most educated decisions regarding purchasing a product or service.
How We’re Funded
The Way We Operate
We’ve always believed in transparency on the web, and we know that without the trust of our readers, we wouldn’t be able to continually provide the most trustworthy, consistent, thorough and up-to-date reviews.
As Host Advisor is entirely free and available to everyone, we need funding to keep the site operational. We invest a lot into our research and review process by purchasing and signing up for hosting plans.
So to be able to provide you with this information, we rely on donations and participate in affiliate programs as a part of this funding. In other words, when you click on links to the products and services we review and make a purchase, it may result in a commission that is credited to www.hostadvisor.co.uk.
However, this does not impact our reviews and recommendations and comes at no additional cost to you. This is how we finance this website and keep it up and running.
While we find these products and services trustworthy and useful, we suggest that you read more reviews online before making a final decision.
Get In Touch
We take pride in being upfront with you. But if there’s something you don’t like, let us know! Having our readers’ trust allows us to continue to provide you with the best, most valuable information on the Internet.
