The Top 10 Web Hosting Companies in the U.S. - Top Two
(Page 4 of 4 )
#2 – Enom.com
Enom.com stands above almost all of the rest of the competition with an intimidating 6.97% market share. As expected, everything offered by Enom.com is very inclusive and it all comes at a pretty decent price.
Enom.com offers two separate hosting types: Windows hosting or Linux hosting. Although many hosts offer these two different types, Enom.com takes it to a whole new level. Each of the hosting types has a full set of features that are best suited to the relevant operating system. Enom.com has figured out how to take full advantage of each hosting type. Because of this, the feature list of Enom.com easily beats out any of the earlier companies.
One down side of Enom.com appears to be the lack of included software packages. Instead, the website just lists “compatible” software packages, implying that you will do all the finding and installing yourself.
Although the basic Enom.com package starts at just $5.96/month, none of the plans are generous with the amount of space or bandwidth that they will give you. Although 1 GB of storage and 10 GB of monthly bandwidth is most likely more than enough for any typical usage, it does not compare well to the offerings of some of the other companies.
#1 – WildWestDomains.com
WildWestDomains.com blows away the competition with its market share of 30.40% (yes, more than four times greater than the #2). However, this figure is a little misleading. WildWestDomains.com, like some of the earlier companies on the list, is not a true “web hosting” company. Instead, the company offers domain-reselling services. Its market share is so high because all of the resellers that use WildWestDomains.com (presumably a great deal are other, smaller web hosts) are registered under WildWestDomains.com’s DNS servers.
If you are looking to expand to the online business world and are not sure how to go about doing it, you might consider domain re-selling. It is a remarkably lucrative industry, and revolves entirely around your salesmanship, not the quality of the product (since all domains are equal). If this sounds good to you, be sure take your first look at WildWestDomains.com, as they are easily the predominant company in domain re-selling.
