    I have also used Bluehost and Nexcess for WordPress hosting, and they have both been outstanding. The important thing when choosing WP hosting is finding a host that optimizes the hosting environment for WordPress.

    A good walk through of the points to be considered before purchasing or going for a webhost. I’ve made a mistake in the past and now I’m happy with my web host. However; most of the shared hosting providers have their very own limitations. I’m now looking forward to test wpengine and mediatemple which are optimized for WordPress as far as the slogan with which they drive their sales 🙂

      Don’t forget SiteGround too, they’re excellent value for money.

      They’re awesome 🙂 That’s why we trust them with WP Mayor too.

    Hi Ariel,

    This blog is quite well written and simple to read.WordPress is a great platform for web hosting indeed. I mean, when it comes to hassle free web hosting, yet at the same time beautiful, fast and not so complex, nothing can be better than WordPress.

    I have been hosting a couple of sites here and there , but all of them are more or less powered by WordPress.ever since WordPress turned out to be the most handy option for quick web site development for me, i have got accustomed with the dashboard and its actually fun now. With the help of the various plugins, even SEO has become a child’s play.

    I have used services for hosting my WordPress powered site from http://www.ixwebhosting.com
    as initially i had to choose an affordable web host. eventually i moved on to http://www.bluehost.com because after doing a lot of market research I figured out that Bluehost supports WP the best, unlike any other hosting service provider.

    Moreover, working on open source platform makes the overall process really flawless and fast.

    Once again, great post.

    Thanks for sharing your tips on picking up the best WordPress web-hosting.

    I agree that price must be one of the top concerns. But, expensive web host doesn’t always mean best web hosting. One also needs to evaluates the cost-effectiveness of it. If your just starting out, shared hosting is the best and cost-effective. On the other hand, if your site gets 50k visitors a month, choose VPS or Dedicated.

    In addition, one needs to consider these too:

    1) Reliability of the web host. That is, whether provide 99.99% uptime guarantee. This is very important if your websites has to be online almost all the time (think a site with 1,000 of visitors a day)

    2) Customer support of the web host. Do they have email, phone, live chat support? Do they provide knowledge base for common issues? Do they respond back promptly and guides you how to fix issues thoroughly?

    3) Enough bandwidth and web space. To ensure high performance and speed, your website has to be hosted on a web host that offers web space and bandwidth. Enough web space to host all of your files, images, and videos, and enough of bandwidth to accommodate all the visitors who frequently visit your site.
