The summer is usually a bit of a doldrums for the hosting industry. Maybe it is because people are too busy with vacation or maybe it is just too hot to built new sites. Regardless of which, the fact is that summers are usually stagnant. That said, apparently BlueHost didn’t get the memo. Both their flagship brand and their spinoff HostMonster vaulted to the top of the list this month. They’ve always been solid hosts, so it is nice to see them get some love, although what HostGator and DreamHost did to give them the opportunity I couldn’t say.

The only other big move was EasyCGI’s drop to eighth from fifth and I am starting to get a bad feeling that this may be deserved. In March, EasyCGI bought WebStrike, but the acquisition has not been well received by some of WebStrike’s customers. Given how vocal some of the complaints have been, I suspect EasyCGI may have their hands pretty hull keeping the peace. If this is impacting their customer service for their core brand, they need to find a solution soon. Let’s hope they sort it out as decent Windows hosting has never been easy to find.

Happy Hosting!
