I can’t speak about your neck of the woods, but in Pittsburgh May was hot and not in a good way. Luckily the hosting world was not nearly as unseasonal.

DreamHost held on at #1 for yet another month, while JustHost and IXWebHosting advanced to grab #2 and #3 respectively. HostGator dropped a few spots, but remained in the top five where it belongs. HostMonster moved up to #5, but BlueHost dropped three places to #6, supporting my idea that their interchangeability leads to volatility rankings-wise.

The bottom half (after BlueHost) contained only one surprise. After being out of the top ten for a couple of months, ANHosting came back to grab the #7 spot, pushing everyone else down and Arvixe off the bottom. Given ANHosting’s history on the list, it isn’t shocking, but it is interesting to see a host with actual storage and bandwidth limits place well.

We are now going into the summer hosting doldrums. For some reason people would rather spend their free time outdoors and with their families than build new websites. Weirdos. Anyway, I’ll keep an eye on things and let you know if anything interesting happens out there. You just worry about your sunscreen.

Happy hosting!
