This is a difficult question because it all depends on the number of visitors you receive, the size of your blog and how much you’re willing to pay.
However saying all of that, the best all round hosting provider I believe is SiteGround and this is the host I use to run this Blog/site.
There are many reasons why I chose SiteGround over other more popular hosts such as Hostgator, Bluehost, Dreamhost and Godaddy hosting. I’ve tried them all but settled with SiteGround. Here’s why:
The three most important factors to consider when choosing a host is Performance, Customer service and Pricing. SiteGround performs overall better results for all three.
SiteGround offers much better value for money, particularly if you’re site receives higher traffic. It also provides brilliant customer support. In fact it’s the best I’ve received by any hosting provider. There hasn’t been a single occasion where my question didn’t receive a quick response from someone who knew what they were talking about. Plus unlike many host most customer service reps seem to be native English speakers – which can make communication a bit easier.
According to wpsitecare.com when tested for speed with 11 other top shared hosting providers, Siteground came second – second only to inmotion hosting. However Siteground provides caching for your wordpress blog which technically makes it the fastest.
This is because normally when someone visits your site, the server has to render each page normally. However caching means The next time you, or anyone else, visits your site, the server doesn’t need to do the processing and conversion to HTML. The server can cache in it’s memory parts of the site that do not change – such as the CSS.
Website caching is perhaps the biggest single technology to boost website speed and by doing so improve SEO (search engine optimization). By doing so it can increase conversions and user satisfaction if you’re selling services online.
By implementing caching, you aren’t just making your website faster, you’re also making it perform better — and equipping it to bear the burden of any sudden traffic spikes more efficiently.
This is why I think SiteGround is faster for higher volumes of users. Turning on Caching is as simple as logging into the control panel of SiteGround clicking a button.
A webhost that includes such great performance for higher volume traffic and great customer service is something that usually carries with it a higher price tag. However at $2.75 SiteGround is well within the range of other more popular host who provide much less.
Site performance isn’t something they just handle for the more expensive plans, they make it a priority for everyone, even customers who are paying $2.75 a month.
