About WHdb

What is WHdb?

Whdb is a one-stop shop for all things web hosting. Guides on getting started, tons of web hosts and facts about them, a state-by-state breakdown of web hosts – you name it, we got it!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, WHdb stands for “Web Hosting Database”.

So, why do you hate reviews?

I don’t hate reviews. In fact, I often trust reviews from my friends on all sorts of things ranging from movies to electronics. The difference is the source. Where do online reviews come from? Hopefully from a genuine source, but there’s no guarantee.

How can I trust you?

How could you not trust this face?

WHdb has been around since 2007, and I have a background in web design and development for nearly that long. I’ve created dozens (possibly hundreds) of web sites, developed web apps, and yes, dealt with web hosts in all varieties. I think we can say we know a little about web hosting and then some.

But when you get down to it, I’m not giving you my opinion on who’s best. My goal is that you can walk away (or I guess navigate away) from WHdb empowered and knowledgeable enough to make a choice you think is right.

I run a web hosting company; can I be added to your site?

Absolutely! WHdb is not a paid directory. There’s no charge or fee or anything like that; I want WHdb to be the most comprehensive and accurate source for hosting provider facts! If you’d like to suggest a web host to add to our site, just use josh@whdb.com to get in touch with me.

I found a bug on your site!

Let me know! If you see a bug or mistake on WHdb, we’d appreciate a head’s up. If you have a suggestion, compliment, or any other form of feedback, let me know with the email above.

Are you into that whole social media thing?

Yep! You can follow us on Twitter or like us on our Facebook page to get posts with helpful information or even news from web host providers.

We also have a blog that routinely pumps out helpful and interesting articles about web hosting, web development, the internet, starting a web site, and more.

Speaking of which…

I’m proud to introduce David Carr, our site blogger

David Carr, site blogger

Hi, I’m David Carr! For the past 10 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do, as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether teaching code to kids at a local school, managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be part of.
