I really learned alot from this website today and it is not the first time I wanted to compare WP.org and WP.com…I really liked everything about WP.org but my question is that what are host payment methods, im from south Africa PayPal and other methods are not easy for me…but bitcoins are always easy and cheap, is there any bitcoins payment method?
The reason GoDaddy isn’t added because they don’t offer “WordPress Hosting”. I only tried to compare these hosts that have been mentioned themselves as “WordPress hosting”. Though, I might add couple of more hosts to the list in the upcoming months 🙂

In this case, you’ll need a web host that offers more than just a few basic shared hosting plans. Pay special attention to those that cover the spectrum of web hosting services as well as those with a variety of plan types that cater to specific business types (e.g. bloggers, small businesses, enterprises, agencies, e-commerce companies, and so on).
I have worked with two other hosts and can say without reservation that SiteGround has the best Customer Service to be found. It is responsive, understandable, and yields results. I would recommend SiteGround without reservation. Other services are superb also, uptime, new services etc.

The availability of a website is measured by the percentage of a year in which the website is publicly accessible and reachable via the Internet. This is different from measuring the uptime of a system. Uptime refers to the system itself being online. Uptime does not take into account being able to reach it as in the event of a network outage. A hosting provider’s Service Level Agreement (SLA) may include a certain amount of scheduled downtime per year in order to perform maintenance on the systems. This scheduled downtime is often excluded from the SLA timeframe, and needs to be subtracted from the Total Time when availability is calculated. Depending on the wording of an SLA, if the availability of a system drops below that in the signed SLA, a hosting provider often will provide a partial refund for time lost. How downtime is determined changes from provider to provider, therefore reading the SLA is imperative. Not all providers release uptime statistics. Most hosting providers will guarantee at least 99.9% uptime which will allow for 43m of downtime per month, or 8h 45m of downtime per year.
They should have 24/7 support service, either via phone or live chat. If the website for your company in Syracuse, New York is running slowly — or down completely — you want to have to wait for business hours in California before being able to resolve the issue.
Two companies stood out for a poor navigational experience. HostGator technically uses cPanel, but they’ve customized it so heavily, and split so many functions onto separate pages, that we had trouble finding basic tools. HostGator also doesn’t include a search bar, so you can’t just type in the name of function or program you’re looking for; you have to navigate through their warren of pages.
