Thanks for feedback Bryan! We will make sure that from time to time we will go even deeper and test those hosts again/add others. While Tom shared his own experience with GoDaddy, he also linked to different external sources for reviews, so people can check for themself, those along with real users comments here, should help our visitors decide what is the best for them 🙂
While it can be nice to have someone walk you through an issue, sometimes you just want to look up your issue quickly, make a small change, and move on. As such, take a look at the documentation that your web hosting provider offers before you purchase a package.
In order to keep costs low for customers, some web hosts offer what’s known as “shared hosting.” This means exactly what it says: that you’ll be sharing space on the server with other websites. In some cases, you’ll never even know that the other websites exist. However, if any of them should experience a traffic surge (and begin drawing up lots of your shared server resources to handle it) or should be compromised in any other way (such as a hack), your site might be affected too. Think of it like a person catching a virus from someone nearby.
To accurately measure performance across all WordPress hosting companies, we create a sample WordPress site on each hosting provider and install the default Twenty Seventeen theme. Next, we import dummy content including images and media so our test resembles an average user website.
PHP 7 boasts 2-3x speed improvement for WordPress websites compared to previous versions. By using PHP 7 your code will execute faster and require fewer resources to serve to the same amount of users. Don’t get stuck with a host that slows your website down with older PHP versions!
Bandwidth: The amount of traffic it can handle per month. Be aware from the outset that “Unlimited” will nearly always mean “Unlimited subject to certain terms and conditions”; just as with space, check your provider’s terms. DreamHost have admirably clear guidelines in this respect.
A2 Hosting scores a top rating of 5 out of 5. That’s because it does a lot right and almost nothing wrong. The company offers much-faster SSD drives for all its plans, which can shorten site-loading time tremendously. It also has a semi-dedicated hosting offering, which is similar to a VPS, except that everything is controlled by cPanel or Plesk, which doesn’t require root-level knowledge.

WordPress is free so there are no additional monthly hosting costs except for custom themes, premium plug-ins, and so on, though any additional plug-ins or add-ons consume utility resources. For big photo galleries, shared media files, or large databases users should plan their budgets accordingly. The WordPress application is a free download from Wordpress.org or it can come pre-installed from A2 Hosting (we also offer an easy 1-click setup via Softaculous if you prefer). With the latter method, the basic framework of a new WordPress site can be running in a few minutes. Manually downloaded installations can more intricate but a web administrator should be able to get your WordPress site up fairly quickly.

I’ve been with HostGator for years and their customer service has gone considerably over the last couple years. I’m changing to SiteGround. I’m tired of asking them for help, pointing them to their own inadequate help pages and them still not knowing what I’m talking about, not to mention the 8 minutes I wait for them to chat and then 3 minutes from one remark to another. Its excrutiating.
One of the smaller web hosting outfits in this listing, PlanetHippo has managed to keep its prices at a lower level compared to most of the competition. Its One Account Linux costs just £1 per month (excluding VAT), and it’s an appealing budget package. The firm’s Ultimate plan offers ‘unlimited everything’ for £5.99 per month (and that includes a free domain).
Managed WordPress hosting is where everything regarding your site is taken care of for you by the hosting company. You don’t need to worry about server configuration or security settings and uptime should be pretty much bulletproof.
