Abstract

There are many hosting evaluators in the market with an intention to (mis)guide the consumers. These evaluators are either the same agencies having hosting business or sponsored by the agencies running hosting business. They pretend themselves to be unbiased evaluators but in practice fully biased towards their clients who pay them money. These fake evaluators follow all tricks to appear to be genuine evaluators. While the visitors think that they are going through evaluation reports and feedbacks posted by genuine users, actually they are browsing through a kind of sophisticated advertisements.

This article illustrates how the advertisements on free hosts are deceptive, the evaluations are fake, and the user feedbacks are manipulated. As a search engine cannot differentiate between good and bad free hosts per se, it is likely to serve you a list of free hosts, which are discussed more or advertised more and not necessarily better. Searching a good free host is as difficult as searching a diamond in a coalmine.

Keywords: web hosting, free hosting, fake hosting evaluations, heliohost
