best blog host

WordPress is by far the most popular CMS solution in the world and also one of the heaviest on a server.  It is for this reason that you need the most optimized configuration from your hosting provider.

In this article, I will show you my best blog hosts for WordPress and the reasons I choose to use them

Over the past few years I have built many sites for myself and clients which have proven to be tricky to host and get the best optimal performance on the web.  The most important factors to look out for is

  • Uptime
  • Speed
  • One click install and fully optimized
  • Pricing
  • Configuration
  • Customer service

My number 1 and best blog host for WordPress

A2 Hosting

These guys were founded in 2001 and have become a force in the hosting industry.  They check all the boxes when it comes to solid web hosting.

I could not believe after i signed up with them that they would be so good.

 

  • Uptime – they have a rating of over 99%
  • Pricing – Very good for what you get.  I chose the swift package under the shared hosting category which is recommended for WordPress.  They also have the turbo option which would give you even more speed and a few more features.  this is highly dependant on your budget, but I reckon the swift package is great value for money
  • Speed – I went from 7 seconds loading time to an incredible 1,5 seconds.  This is great for customer experience and SEO (Search engine optimization)
  • One click install – Every package comes with cPanel and Softaculious.  You are able to install WordPress onto your site within 1 minute
    • A2 Hosting packages are bundled with preconfigured settings and Optimization.  You would need to know your stuff just to get on this level of configuration, as well as spend money on pro plugins to get the same result.  The A2 Optimization comes standard with most of their packages and is an absolute lifesaver
  • Customer Service – I reckon the best service in the industry.  Starting off, they have a great client area for you to navigate and find what you are looking for.  Secondly, you can raise a ticket and expect a very quick response.  They also have loads of resources and FAQ’s if you are stuck

There are other good Hosts for WordPress as well

  • BlueHost
  • Webnerd
  • Hostgator
  • Siteground
  • WP Engine

All of the above are fantastic choices and tick most of the boxes, but from my experience, I find A2 Hosting the best value for money and fantastic for WordPress

I have tried many hosting packages, and the reason i decided to be an ambassador for A2 Hosting is because they are my favorite.
