My Story

You are probably wondering what my qualifications are for telling everyone about all the good, bad, and ugly web hosts, so I felt it was only prudent to share with you some more information about me.

For starters, I don’t just tell people I was quoted in the media, or submit content to places that request I give them my take on something – that’s not my style.  If you want to see where I was quoted, here is a list of links below:

And many others….but I’m not here to bore you with quotes, I’m here to share my story so you can trust that I’m a credible resource when it comes to choosing a website hosting company.

Here is My History of Working Online

Since 2002, I’ve been making a living online. I started in sales at a search engine optimization agency before going off on my own to start my own full service SEO company based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Since then, I’ve worked with over 1,000 clients, have seen countless websites, and have sprouted up my own e-commerce brands as well. The bottom line is, I’m online the majority of every day and very in touch with the exact processes and procedures that need to be in place to make money online. In fact, I even have my own course that teaches people how to make money selling other people’s products online.  This is called Affiliate Marketing. Check it out right here. (It teaches affiliate marketing and how to sell other people’s products using a website or YouTube channel.)

Enjoying a nice round of golf with my ten year old.

So, I’ve been around the block several times, routinely give presentations on Internet Marketing and SEO, and am considered a dinosaur in the space. It’s all I do, and I do it well.

Over the years I’ve had my share of bad experiences with hosting companies. I’ll never forget the very important holiday weekend where a hosting company went down and I lost about $10,000 in sales. I’ve learned from more bad experiences than I care to talk about, but let’s just say, when you are in any game long enough, you’ll hit the ultimate highs and the extreme lows.

This website is a culmination of my experiences working with web hosts for my small businesses as well as for the many projects I pop up for myself, friends, and clients. I have hosted every type of site imaginable, and have first hand experience working with at a very minimum 50 web hosting companies.

I hope you enjoy my reviews. After my own struggles, trials, and tribulations, I figured creating a hosting review website was the best possible way to give back to everyone out there who may be just starting up in Internet Marketing, or for anyone who is fed up with their current hosting relationship.
