iPage (

iPage is probably not the best option in hosting WordPress. Although the customer support and prices are nice, you don’t want to struggle with their slow speed and average uptime.

PROS: Best cheap hosting for WordPress
CONS: Not very knowledgable customer support, bad reputation online.

30 Day Money-Back Guarantee
It’s always comforting to hear that there is a 30 day money back guarantee. Some web hosts play trickery and will not give your money back in full. Not iPage.

If you are not satisfied for any reason, you can get your money back in full. No questions asked.

GreenGeeks (

The Very Best of WordPress Hosting
Nowadays almost every web hosting company claims that they are WordPress friendly and so on. It’s easier said than done. One web host I particularly like the WP hosting of is Siteground. They have a very well optimized service, so it’s kind of the standard of WordPress hosting for me.

So why not compare the two?

I have set up two skeleton WordPress websites and headed to GTMetrix.

The results are incredible: GreenGeeks matches one of the best WP hosts in the industry.

GreenGeeks goes for $3.99 per month and they offer a 30-day money back guarantee.

PROS: Strong uptime, green hosting provider, free site transfer
CONS: Load time for WordPress website should be better

A2 Hosting (

Uptime: 99.90%
Load Time: 471ms
Support: 8/10

A2 Hosting is a popular host known for their ultra-fast and reliable WordPress hosting, and guru technical support. Good for wordpress users, fast server, and offer free SSL.

PROS: Fastest WordPress hosting, WordPress optimized servers
CONS: Weak uptime (only 99.90%)


InMotion Hosting(

Keep in mind that the average speed in the hosting industry is about 750ms, and InMotion Hosting I average page loading time is slightly below it – 689ms. So it may not be as fast as HostGator or A2 Hosting, but still good enough to beat the hosting industry average.

One of the drawbacks with InMotion Hosting is that there’s no instant account access. That means if you’re an international customer, outside the North America for example, there might be a delay and hassle when attempting to verify your new account.

But overall, you’ll be very happy with InMotion’s service.

Customer support: Reliable, fast, good customer support
CONS: No instant activation for people outside US

No hosting company is perfect. And I’ve always maintained that there is no such thing as a “best” hosting company – it all depends on your goals and preferences.

In terms of uptime, SiteGround maintained an average uptime of 99.98% followed by a strong load time of 505ms.

SiteGround might not offer a free trial of their services, but they do offer a 30-day money back guarantee. That’s just the kind of security you need if you’re looking for a WordPress host.

HostGator Cloud: (

While using HostGator Cloud, you don’t need to worry about it, as their speed of 565ms is 2x better than industry average (1185ms). Only A2 Hosting (a bit more expensive) and BlueHost Cloud (has bad uptime) are faster than HostGator Cloud.
