Business Hosting

Business hosting, as I term it here, is something in between general purpose hosting and dedicated hosting. As such, depending on your businesses needs, you could also consider going with the best general purpose hosting to save money, or with dedicated hosting for the ultimate in quality and control.

If you'd like to learn how I choose the hosts I list please see the Hosting Selection Criteria page.
