Who Are The Recommended Web Hosts For WordPress?

by Alex Trần

Here is the list of my favorite WordPress webhosting in different categories:

Shared hosting:

  • Bluehost
  • Hostgator
  • A2Hosting

Managed WordPress Hosting:

Cloud Hosting:

  • Cloudways

If you pick either of them, you’ll be fine.



Bluehost is the top-recommended web host for hosting your WordPress blog, and it is also the most affordable. They have various shared hosting packages (recommended for new bloggers), and you can get an unlimited hosting plan (with unlimited resources and 1 free domain) for only $5.95/month. 

Installing WordPress on Bluehost server is very easy and I have added a lesson on how to do that in this course.

Important features of Bluehost:

  • Free domain.
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Unlimited space
  • 24/7 live support
  • One click WordPress installation.
  • Payment via PayPal and credit card 
  • $100 AdWords credit.


HostGator is the closest alternative to Bluehost. 

HostGator offers 3 different packages on shared hosting, and if you are shopping for HostGator, pick the “Baby” plan as this will let you host multiple websites (something you will probably want to do in the near future). 

Features of HostGator hosting:

  • Unlimited hosting.
  • Free website migration.
  • Free 1 year domain registration of the primary domain.
  • 24/7 live chat and telephone support.
  • Payment via PayPal and credit card.
  • $100 AdWords credit.

These two are the best recommended shared web hosting plans for WordPress. Shared hosting is good when you are starting out & your requirements are low. 

But if you are starting with a business WordPress site, or your traffic is rapidly growing and you need better hosting, here are your options…

Instead of picking a VPS or dedicated hosting plan, you should pick Managed WordPress Hosting. These web hosts are perfectly designed for WordPress. You don’t need to worry about getting hacked because they have WordPress-specific security measures in place to protect you. Even if you do get hacked, they offer a free cleanup and will restore your site from a backup.

Speaking of backups, these hosting packages offer daily free backups which means you don’t need to pay for any 3rd party service for taking backups.
