Top Three Shared Hosting for WordPress 2016
The majority of the web host out there will allow WordPress as it’s just a script but to efficiently run WordPress, you will need a good host. You do not need a dedicated server or VPS if you aren’t getting much traffic so I would recommend starting off with a good shared hosting at first and move your website once it gets popular.
I’ve been with many shared host in the past and here are my top three shared web hosting for WordPress:
I’m a big fan of HostGator as they always provide the best support with the best pricing on their shared hosting. This site is hosted on HostGator and it’s a WordPress site so I’m recommending HostGator from personal experiences.
I would recommend the Shared Baby Plan from HostGator as it will allow you to have unlimited domains, unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth for $10/month.
Installing WordPress with HostGator is extremely simple. You just login into your cPanel and access their auto WordPress install script. That’s it.
I currently have 15 WordPress active plugins and my website still loads fast without any problems. My website is currently two years old and I haven’t ran into any problems regarding WordPress and HostGator.
HostGator offers a 20% discount for the first month so check them out.
BlueHost is my second favorite shared hosting for WordPress. I still have an active account with them as I think it’s better to spread your websites to many different hosts if you have a lot of websites.
BlueHost comes with Auto-Install, unlimited disk storage, unlimited data transfer and unlimited domains on your account.
DreamHost is one of the host that is recommended by WordPress.org so while I was still a new at the time, I signed up for DreamHost. I had no regrets though as I still think DreamHost is one of the better shared hosting for WordPress.
You can install WordPress with their 1-click install and auto updates. You also get unlimited storage, bandwidth, SSDs, unlimited domain hosting, 24/7 support and 100% up time guarantee.
DreamHost also offers a service called WordPress Hosting that is super-charged, optimized and ready to scale managed WordPress hosting.
