WH-D.com, a hosting directory and news portal provider, today announced a social web hosting directory.
The company says that it features dynamic host listings that change positioning based upon user votes. The concept diverges significantly from traditional hosting directories, which often rely on static, pay-per-click advertisements to power the site.
WH-D.com allows site visitors to search for web hosting providers serving a multitude of categories, including managed, budget, Linux, Windows, reseller and VPS hosting. Within each category, visitors are presented with a list of posts for various hosts, and visitors can then vote for posts that they find reliable or helpful. Ultimately, the positioning of each post in the category changes as new votes are submitted, with popular posts quickly reaching the top of the page.
"It's about empowering our users," said Sohaib Thiab, CEO and Co-Founder of WH-D.com. "There is a universal shift in logic in the way information should be organised online. As the ideas of Web 2.0 continue to proliferate and become reality, it grows apparent that site patrons—and not site administrators or a marketing team—should determine how content is organised. Without patrons, even the best designed site is utterly useless."
