Winner: DreamHost

DreamHost home page

Pros

  • Plenty of packages
  • Dedicated servers available
  • Reasonable price
  • Great support
  • 100% uptime guarantee

Cons

  • None

DreamHost is, hands down, the best WordPress Hosting provider available. Their accessible and affordable packages include managed WordPress and a custom CPanel, as well as dedicated server options.

You may be about to launch a personal blog, a company site, or an eCommerce store, whatever type of WordPress site you want to build, DreamHost has you covered. I'd say they're the best overall hosting provider full stop.

For the very affordable price of $7.95 / month, you get one-click WordPress install, free SSL (https security, and a 'secure' padlock in the address bar), and 24/7 support. They also have a 100% uptime guarantee!

2nd: WPEngine

WPEngine Review Home Screen

Pros

  • Great Network Architecture
  • Fantastic Performance
  • 60 Day Money-Back Guarantee
  • Automatic Backups
  • Free SSL
  • Automatic Malware Scans
  • Free CDN (only free on Professional plans and up)

Cons

  • Higher price
  • Some support features lacking
  • Only for WordPress (not necessarily a bad thing)
  • Visitor caps

WPEngine has a lot of great features, and almost made it to the top, but the higher starting price will definitely put some people off. If your budget allows, however, they are a very good choice, especially if you have a heavy website traffic.

WPEngine offers fully managed WordPress hosting, extremely fast servers, and automatic malware scans and removal.

You can try WPEngine out for 60 days and if you're not happy, you can cancel to get a full refund, which should be enough time to make a decision on whether it's right for you.

$29 / month

3rd: SiteGround

SiteGround Homepage

Pros

  • Free domain
  • Free migration from your old host
  • SSD storage
  • Free SSL
  • Cheap

Cons

  • Varying levels of support
  • Only shared hosting

SiteGround offer solid WordPress hosting packages at rock bottom prices, with managed WordPress hosting starting at just $3.95 per month! For this introductory price, you do get a cap of 10,000 monthly visits, and 10GB of storage - not huge but definitely enough to get you started.

They also offer a free domain name, which is another plus for newbies, as they will set everything up for you without you needing to know about DNS, SSL, etc.

If you have a limited budget, SiteGround is a very reasonable choice.

 

$4.50 / month

4th: BlueHost

BlueHost Homepage

Pros

  • Low price
  • plenty of options
  • Good security
  • One-click WordPress installation
  • FREE domain

Cons

  • Customer support lacking
  • 'Quick-start' training is expensive
  • Paid site migration

BlueHost is one of the most widely used hosts on the planet, with ove 1.9 million domains registered. They have a great UI and the experience of being their customer is usually good, but there have been reports of poor customer service and unstable websites (although our reviewer didn't experience that).

The cost of BlueHost will certainly draw plenty of customers, and their wide range of hosting options make BlueHost a worthy WordPress hosting provider.

It's worth mentioning that you can get a FREE domain when you sign up to BlueHost, which could tip the balance in their favor when we update this list, provided they work on their customer service.

$3.95 / month

5th: NameCheap

namecheap homepage

Pros

  • Low price
  • plenty of options
  • Good security
  • One-click WordPress installation
  • FREE domain

Cons

  • Customer support lacking
  • 'Quick-start' training is expensive
  • Paid site migration

Last but not least, we have NameCheap, mainly known for their great offers on domain names, but they offer hosting as well. They are actually an exceptionally good hosting provider with plenty of features and very quick site propagation.

For beginners, NameCheap could be top of the list, as their customer service is just awesome. They have 24/7 chat support with knowledgeable technicians who are always happy to help.

The one drawback of NameCheap is that they have slightly higher downtime than the other hosts, which could be very bad news for some sites. The downtime is actually very low, so it won't be an issue for most customers.
