There are many choices available for WordPress hosting. Though not all of them are as good as they make themselves out to be.
We have tested and used right from cheapest WordPress hosting to premium ones. Our take, expensive ones are not necessarily value for money. In short, unless your daily website traffic is in thousands, you don’t need to spend money on expensive WordPress hosting solution.
A properly configured WordPress with CDN is able to handle quite a load and it will still cost less than a premium web hosting solution.
This list is based on reviews from actual users as well as our personal uses. Most of these hosting companies also provide a trial period ( mentioned in details) which you can use to check for their services.
The most popular one. They are an official ‘WordPress’ recommended hosting provider. They are rated #1 in web hosting for small businesses. Their ‘cloud’ plan starts from $6.95 though.
Their shared hosting plan is cheaper, but their have been reports of their shared plan hosting being little slow. You can start with shared hosting and then upgrade later. It is all a matter of clicking to upgrade to higher plan.
They have 24/7 customer care service, which is rated from above average to very good by the existing customers.
Being here since 1996, and also being part of EIG group (which also owns Hostgator) means, Bluehost provides one of the best services in economy section of Website hosting.
This hosting is our current bet, where we moved many of our light to medium load websites. Their support staff is simply awesome. The prices are good too. Haven’t faced any downtime in last 1 year, that we are with them.
Now wonder, SiteGround is one of the most popular and highest rated hosting provider in the WordPress community.
SiteGround offers features like automatic upgrades, built-in WP caching, CDN (cloudflare), one-click staging and GIT version control.
Kinsta is hosting of choice of many heavy traffic, heave load WordPress websites.
There hosting service is based on Google Cloud Platform. And they have have used custom coded backend to give you an absolutely delightful experience of dashboard.
The only hesitation is the price for their services. Though earlier the lowest priced package was at $100, now you can have Kinsta having your back at starting price of $30 per month only.
We use Kinsta on regular basis for our premium clients and let’s just say that we have not regretted it, ever.
