The following WordPress web hosting providers have our personal recommendation as being quality sites for hosting your WordPress sites.
Although you can use WordPress and themes with several hosts, Bluehost is the official “WordPress” recommended hosting provider. Bluehost has been recommended by WordPress since 2005.
Bluehost is one of the oldest web hosting companies in the business and the largest brand names for WordPress hosting. They offer 1-click installs from within their cPanel, which makes downloading WordPress as easy as clicking a button.
For as low as $4.95/month, they offer unlimited domain hosting, unlimited emails, and many more services and addons. Not to mention Bluehost also has custom-made servers that have set the standard for reliability, speed, and security.
WP Engine are specialists in hosting WordPress sites. They pride themselves on performance, reliability and support. They cost a bit more than traditional WordPress hosting sites, but they offer a number of unique features not found elsewhere, such as:
- Caching to speed up your site using the WP Engine custom-built EverCache Technology
- If your WordPress site is ever hacked. WP Engine will fix your site for free!
- A one-click backup and restore option is included at no extra charge.
- One-click staging. WP Engine has an exclusive feature called “staging”. Before you make any updates to your site, you can click on the “snapshot” button, to create a copy of your site in a separate safe area.
