WordPress hosting is an ideal platform for customers who are interested in creating a custom-built website. WordPress is popular among customers because it lets you build a professional custom website using a variety of templates, plug-ins and widgets.
From my personal experience, Inmotion is more preferable one. We do prefer our clients to host there. The customer support is fantastic with 24X7 service. No down time at all. Thank you for such detailed comparison. Planning to buy WP Engine which plan should i prefer?
We’re giving you better performance than ever. Your data and web space are stored entirely on SSD (Solid State Drive) storage. This results in an up to 50% increase in speed over traditional magnetic hard drives.
Cloud hosting offers unlimited ability to handle high traffic or traffic spikes. Here’s how it works: A team of servers (called a cloud) work together to host a group of websites. This allows multiple computers to work together to handle high traffic levels or spikes for any particular website.
When we used Media Temple, I always thought their customer support was quite good. It was a bit annoying having to remember a PIN to call them, and they didn’t have live chat, but problems were generally solved quite swiftly.
Both HostGator and GoDaddy had slightly different plus and minus points, but none were ultimately persuasive enough to pick out a clear winner. We were impressed with their price point, setup process, backend and performance though.
The company didn’t earn a 5 rating primarily because it doesn’t offer the consumer-level services provided by other hosting providers that reach a broader market. It also lost points because the sales chat agent couldn’t tell us whether or not a money-back guarantee was available. That said, if you’re serious about your web presence, and know and appreciate what co-lo means, Colocation America should be one of your first stops on your journey to hosting your servers or renting dedicated machines. The company also offers 24-7 phone support.
If you’re planning on scaling a the whole way up from small beginnings to a truly massive affair, Page.ly has a lot to recommend it. Their prices aren’t cheap, but you’re getting value for money great service and support and plenty of room to scale. Their Atomic Core admin is particularly impressive.
WP Engine may not be the cheapest web hosting company, but they sure know a thing about keeping WordPress sites running smoothly. Ironically, they’re one of the very few web hosting companies that don’t talk about ‘99.99% uptime guarantees’, and yet they seem to have one of the best uptime track records.
Anything you want to build with WordPress can be achieved using its powerful plugins. From security to backups, forms, to full-fledged eCommerce platforms, WordPress has thousands of plugins for you to choose from. Take a look at our reviews and ratings of some of the top WordPress plugins in the market to get started.
More details: my startup is initially building a niche job board with all the modern features (profile, job match, applicant mgmt., social integration/authentication, xml job pull, etc.), and eventually integrating future innovations which might include things like integrating another open source functionality like CRM or recruitment tech. Having “open source” availability is important to me so that I can modify algorithms if need be (such as the job matching), integrate new code features as I scale, and so I can have access to the underlying customer database for analytics, etc.
Get the most flexibility – cloud servers provide the most flexible environment available in the hosting sphere. The cloud adapts to physical hardware problems and puts your site in a reliable location automatically. It also offers a fast and seamless upgrade option for those times when website traffic gets high.
Here are some of the reasons the company gets a full 5 rating. They offer an all-SSD infrastructure. They have 24-7 telephone support in addition to the ticket/email/chat support options. They offer a basic site migration, in that they’ll unpack a site saved from another cPanel instance. They offer free SSL and free malware detection.
We weren’t impressed with PacificHost, 3Essentials, Scala Hosting, and BigScoots. PacificHost let us select the department we wanted to talk to, and promptly hung up on us. BigScoots and Scala Hosting sent us to voicemail without the chance of speaking to a representative, while we waited 5 minutes with 3Essentials on hold before being shunted to voicemail.
As well as 24/7 support and 10GB of web hosting space, you can have two databases up to 1GB in size. You don’t get a dedicated SSL certificate and advanced scripting, so more complex sites will need to plump for the £7 a month deal called Momentum (20GB of space).
The majority of the hosts on our lineup use a standard cPanel and for good reason – it is the industry standard. While the dashboard isn’t much to look at, it provides useful tools to create a site, manage the hosting and market it to the online world.
Also, another thing that we didn’t point out earlier is that SiteGround is very strong when it comes to their security solutions. For instance, they act very quickly whenever a new vulnerability in WordPress gets discovered and a patch needs to be released (usually done on the same day).
SiteGround is one of the cheapest providers on the list which will be a big factor for many and may suit smaller sites just starting out. However, InMotion beats it by a small margin, which makes it the frontrunner for budget WordPress users.

Nearly every company advertises promotional pricing, which can be steeply discounted. Although it can be tricky to find the company’s regular rates, take the time to do so, since that’s the rate you’ll pay after the promotion ends.
Next level hosting. The provider boasts of next level performance with anytime scalability; next level speed with HTTP/2 and PHP 7.1; and next level security with SSL certificate, DDoS protection, and geo-redundancy.
Though their service is slightly more expensive than other options, they provide value with highly-secure and optimized WordPress hosting. WP Engine takes care of updates, patches, and they engage in real-time security threat detection.
