HostVoice has offered to pay you $20 for searching for a hosting provider.

In an effort to separate themselves from the competition, - a free interactive service that connects webmasters with web hosts - has launched a new promotion where it will reward any user that tries out their free service and finds a host for their website, with a $20 cashback.

HostVoice’s key business model is to provide leads to the web hosting industry. The process starts when potential customers complete a form detailing their requirements. This information is automatically channeled to a panel of 8 web hosting companies who are able to provide the consumer with a custom quote via eMail or phone. By keeping the number of companies small, it helps improve visibility and also doesn’t flood the customer with quotes.

In the last six months, has successfully served over 5,000 leads to web hosts such as whose owner Jon Walters told us “I was a little skeptical to work with them ( However, their team helped me get started, I began receiving leads and was excited to see quite a bit of information on the lead’s needs and wants that helped me tailor my quotes. Their leads have helped my company grow by delivering quality leads that can turn into business”. HostVoice has also received praise from other advertisers about their level of service.

“This promotion is a win-win situation for both the consumers, since they get cashback for services that they need, and the hosting companies that advertise with us, since their conversion rates increase without any additional spending on their behalf" said Boris Mordkovich, Director of Operations at EchoMedia Solutions, Inc., the parent company of HostVoice.

    The loads are not explained. You can host hundreds of of websites on your server which have some 10 visitors per day. Try to host 1 php-nuke website with some 100 people online all the time - your server load never will be under 1.

    Well isn't that obvious? PHP/Database driven sites will use more of the systems resources, therefor not letting you host as many sites. PHP-Nuke or poorly programmed sites will slow a server down a lot. There is no magic number of sites on a system its all a balance of resource management and usage.

    True, below 1.0 load is very important. Average 2-3 load, I would consider get another machine or upgrade hardware.

    I don`t get it ... in my case it`s something like this "Server Load 8.65 (4 cpus)" is this bad?

Add Your Thoughts is a hosting directory, not a web host.
