I have another post covering why you should avoid all web hosting companies owned by Endurance International Group (EIG).. Also avoid GoDaddy hosting. Yuck.
Non EIG Hosting Companies I recommend!
This is the order in which I recommend these companies.
I have used SiteGround for 99% of the sites I create these days. Many people on the WP forums recommend them. Great support, love their speed and security and the free SSL! SiteGround is officially recommended by WordPress.org, however WordPress also officially recommends EIG hosts I avoid, my list of hosting recommendations will more likely help you avoid future annoyance.
So many reasons to chose Flywheel for your WordPress blog. The biggest is the superfly customer service by WordPress ninjas and their super fast hosting. I wish all of my clients would understand that the $15.00 per month (min) is completely worth it considering that you can get a back up of every day and roll back your site easily and their support is leaps and bounds over other support, even the ones listed on this page. Fact. They have fewer accounts per shared server and they are run by EXPERT WordPress engineers. Free SSL too!
Extremely good host with the latest technology and they are very inexpensive. Checkout their VPS hosting. If you ever want to get into the reseller hosting business, these people are amazing!
This is the host I use and I have had very good, reliable service with them. They are available by phone 24/7 and they are a Green Host. In the middle of the day the wait times are long on the phone for support. Currently they are training more techs (in the USA) to help with the increase customer demand.
Holy smokes: At Liquid Web, we pride ourselves on the simple offer of great customer service. Our support team is the backbone of our company and transparency is our Heroic Promise. Every month, we publish our support statistics so you can see exactly how fast we’re responding to tickets and taking phone calls.
Actually, I'm thinking of moving to this host because of their LiteSpeed Powered Servers, LiteSpeed is up to 9 times faster than Apache web hosting, processes PHP 50% faster, and 3 times faster than SSL Apache Hosting. I'm kinda lazy though, maybe a customer will sign up with them so I can play around.
WordPress focused hosting with an excellent reputation.
Excellent reputation and very inexpensive hosting. I love frogs!
All the best,
