The Planet, what is that??? is it hosting provider??? I can’t find them even i searched in google.

ThePlanet was originally a large dedicated server hosting provider. They have recently merged with Softlayer.

The results of the survey are based on the IP netblock owner. So it is likely that some of the numbers for the “The Planet” are also from smaller shared hosts running on The Planet owned servers (and IP’s).

I believe you need to tests and research for the web hosting which will be the best for you and which will never let you down.
TOP 5 web hosts might be good, but if they are in TOP that is not a guarantee that will be the best for you personally.

I agree with this … What you’ve mentioned is top 5 largest host …
Definition of a Top host varies customer to customer … For example, a small segment will prefer cheap hosting over to customer service … another segment will prefer rapid response over to pricing …

It is very difficult to define top 5 hosting providers …

It would be similar to saying that Microsoft makes the “Top operating system” (an obviously false statement) without clarifying it as the most popular. :smiley:
