Some hosting companies advertise free hosting for WordPress websites. That means you do not have to pay for the hosting itself, but often for additional services you may make use of. Choosing free hosting also can be limited in certain ways (e.g. limited storage space, limited bandwidth, unwanted advertisements on your website, etc.). Due to the restrictions and limitations, free hosting usually isn’t really suitable for professional websites, but on the other hand, you can lay back and leave all the hosting management to the hosting company.

Hey Marcus, It’s the best guide I have ever seen so far. Especially, I loved the way you distinguish your recommendations for Small Businesses/ Blogs/ Portfolios and for High-traffic Sites. Few years back, I had been using one of the top 4 web hosts you mentioned here, and they were excellent for years. Then out of nowhere EIG came into picture, and it ruined everything from support to server performance. Another thing, if you see the prices of the top 4 web hosts, you will notice that most of the plans have approximately the same price. So, IMHO price should not be the concern while choosing a web host. I would choose a web host on the basis of availability and quality of support.
