Sedo is reporting that the domain name WHReviews.com has sold for $70,000 USD, from its premium domain auction website GreatDomains.
The domain WHreviews.com is now host to a Web Hosting Reviews web site that was created to help people find independent, credible web hosting reviews and comments, so they could pick the right hosting company.
The new owner of the web site explains why visitors should use WHReviews.com on the home page: “There are all sorts of hosting reviews websites that talk about or collect web hosting reviews, sites posting all kinds of ratings, or top 10 web hosting companies lists. If you spend a bit of time comparing those lists, you’ll see that most recommend a part of the same group of companies. You might think: “That’s normal. It means those are really the best!”. Unfortunately, no. The reason that the same companies always make it to the “top” is that those companies, one way or another, pay to be listed there.”
There’s not that long road ahead for WHReviews.com.
Though webhostingreviews.com and webhostingreviewz.com are both established web sites and rank ahead of WHReviews.com in Google search, WHReviews.com is on page 1 for the phrase “web hosting reviews” – and visitor traffic isn’t far behind its closest competitors.
According to Archive.org, WHReviews.com was a web hosting review web site as far back as the early 2000s.
