At ConsumersAdvocate.org, we take transparency seriously.
To that end, you should know that many advertisers pay us a referral fee if you purchase products after clicking links or calling phone numbers on our website.
The following companies are our partners in Web Hosting: Bluehost, GoDaddy, HostGator, Just Host, SiteBuilder, 1&1 Internet Inc, Liquid Web, iPage, A Small Orange, Domain.com, StartLogic, and FatCow.
We sometimes offer premium or additional placements on our website and in our marketing materials to our advertising partners. Partners may influence their position on our website, including the order in which they appear on a Top 10 list.
For example, when company ranking is subjective (meaning two companies are very close) our advertising partners may be ranked higher. If you have any specific questions while considering which product or service you may buy, feel free to reach out to us anytime.
If you choose to click on the links on our site, we may receive compensation. If you don't click the links on our site or use the phone numbers listed on our site we will not be compensated. Ultimately the choice is yours.
