Looking for a cheap WordPress hosting service?
One of the most common emails I receive every month is people asking me advice about picking a reliable WordPress hosting company.
We get many clients that are new to WordPress and blogging and are looking for an affordable WordPress hosting service that allows them to have a website online without breaking their bank and also that’s a reliable service they can trust.
We have used all the major companies in the past and thanks to that, we have a pretty good idea of what service is reliable and what causes issues. What company has a good customer support and what really sucks.
Some of the largest and most famous companies have a services that are very disappointing, but some goes beyond that; slow and unresponsive hosting. Slow and bad customer service. No knowledge about WordPress whatsoever.
What to look in a hosting company
To start you only need a shared hosting. There’s no need to spend a lot of money when you are starting out and nobody knows about your website. Most websites only get no more than a few thousand visitors per month even after years of being online.
Unless you know you are going to have a huge following in the future, I don’t see why you should waste money right away.
Even if you don’t want to deal with the migration in the future, many reputable companies do it for you for free.
Here are some things you should look in a hosting company:
You need to pick a company that doesn’t have reputation of being slow or unreliable. If you Google the name of the hosting company, a bunch of review websites will tell you if how they have been performing.
I have been recommending hosting that use SSD drives. The speed improvement in some cases is up to 300%. It used to be more expensive, but not anymore.
Great Customer Services
This is a must have. If your website goes down, you need a reliable customer service to help you. You can’t wait two days for an email response.
You should only concern about the price after you have found a good reliable service with good customer support. There are many cheap hosting companies, but not all of them a reliable or have a good customer service.
The Hosting Company We Recommend
One of the best companies we have used with a great service is Inmotion hosting.
We haven’t had any major issue or downtime, but we get quick and knowledgeable customer service when we contact them.
Some of the features:
- They use SSD disk with unlimited space and unlimited data transfer.
- Their pricing has a three different packages. The most affordable version is limited to 2 websites. I recommend the second tier.

- 90 Days Money-Back Guarantee.
