Vetted Hosting Sites for Your WordPress Site
By far, one of the most important things you will consider when you set up your WordPress site is picking a hosting party. They are the backbone of your business, providing the support and foundation you need to get your business off the ground, so getting this decision right is paramount to the overall survival of your website.
But with millions and millions of hosting options out there, which one should you choose? Some are super-expensive, and therefore completely out of reach, while others are way too cheap, offering almost zero in addition to simply giving you a spot for your website.
Fortunately for you, this list should provide some help. We’ve looked at all the hosting options available, and found the ones that in 2017-2018 statistics for WordPress show that the CMS runs on most PHP servers without any glitches or hiccups. We checked the plugins and other common issues that we commonly hear back from and made sure there weren’t any issues. This saves us time, and you time, which is just better for everyone.
Why Did We Make This List?
We initially started this list as a part of project WHIP to persuade various web hosting companies to upgrade their PHP version, but we found a lot of them never participated. Because of this, we have been inundated with questions from people who wanted to find hosting companies that not only upgraded their PHP, but also supported other modern technologies. This list was created to provide a ready reference for these and other questions.
A good hosting site will give you peace of mind, knowing that your site is safe and secure from outside attacks, and this list brings together the hosting companies that do this the best. And to top it all off, this list doesn’t even include any ads or affiliates or paid promotions (which means no one paid to be on this list) – just companies that provide exceptional services.
What Do I Do If My Current Host Isn’t On this List?
If your current hosting partner is not very good, relax, you’re in good company. If you’re unsure, simply contact them via e-mail or get a colocation hosting solution and ask if they support recent versions of PHP; we’ve even provided a sample e-mail you can use to contact them if you would like. If you’re unhappy with their response, simply move on and use one of the hosting sites on this list to help with your next selection.
