If you’re just start­ing out with self-host­ed Word­Press, you’re going to be look­ing for cheap and reli­able host­ing providers. Before you spend count­less hours read­ing review upon review of the thou­sands of host­ing providers out there, let me save you some time and give you a few solid options to choose from.

Web Hosting

SiteGround

Hands down our favourite web host. Why? How about sup­port tick­ets answered with­in 5 min­utes, always avail­able live chat and a host­ing envi­ron­ment spe­cial­ly tai­lored for Word­Press? So many peo­ple are switch­ing to Site­Ground, and for good rea­son.

BlueHost

You’ll find Blue­Host rec­om­mend­ed by many oth­er top blog­gers, and for a good rea­son. Blue­Host offers unlim­it­ed host­ing for just $4.95 per mon­th and they have a very good track record when it comes to sup­port and upti­me.

A2 Hosting

A2 Host­ing offer a blaz­ing fast web host­ing solu­tion per­fect for you. Whether you have a low traf­fic, brand new blog or own a pop­u­lar busi­ness site, A2 Host­ing has got you cov­ered. Whether you’ve nev­er run a web­site before or are a pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­er, rest assured they have a web host­ing solu­tion to meet your unique needs.

DreamHost

This is anoth­er top choice for shared host­ing, you can read our DreamHost review and decide for your­self. I have clients sites I man­age host­ed on both Blue­Host and DreamHost, and I can tell you both are very sta­ble hosts you can trust.

Managed WordPress Hosting

If you’re ready to take the next step in host­ing and go for some­thing more robust, man­aged Word­Press host­ing is what you are look­ing for.

We use and rec­om­mend the fol­low­ing man­aged Word­Press host­ing providers:

WP Engine

This is where WP May­or is host­ed, you can read all about our deci­sion to move from shared host­ing to WP Engine. In a nut­shell, WP Engine is a great host­ing provider if your web­site has a lot of traf­fic.

IMPORTANT:  We cur­rent­ly do NOT rec­om­mend using GoDaddy’s host­ing ser­vices with WP RSS Aggre­ga­tor. There is an issue on GoDaddy’s end that affects our plugin’s func­tion­al­i­ty. They are work­ing to address it. How­ev­er, there is no speci­fic ETA due to the com­plex­i­ty of the issue.
