Top Five WordPress Hosting Reviews.

If you are a wordpress user, you might have faced hosting suspension, viruses or slow loading of your website. Lots of Plugins become a reason for a slow speed and activating too many scripts at once which becomes frustrated if you are not a developer and can’t tackle it on your own. Almost all shared hosting plans have limitations and there isn’t something perfect at affordable price. Matter of fact is, you need a reliable hosting, which can handle number of websites for the quality traffic that you bring after several years of hard work, you wouldn’t like your visitors to notice downtime or bad reviews about your website. I’m about to discuss few but best WordPress hosting services, so grab a cup of coffee and take few mins to go through the following services before you make a decision to switch your hosting services.

For Loadimpact.com Results, https://www.wpsitecare.com saved my time building detailed reports, including them for each service provider.

Wp-Engine

WP-Engine-review-pricing

Professionals and developers recommend WP-Engine Hosting as it’s famous of being reliable among many. Newbie’s are scared of choosing a $29 Personal Hosting Plan at once; it looks expensive but the price tag isn’t something which explains the quality, scalability, money back guarantee, handling traffic and best of all, Loading Time of the website is great but they only host WordPress sites.

Features

  • 1 Click WordPress Install
  • Integration with Git
  • CDN
  • Staging Areas

Features above make the price tag worthwhile, as most of cheap hosting plans can’t offer that all.

Godaddy Hosting

godaddy-wordpress-hosting-pricing

Who doesn’t know Godaddy as a Registrar but most of us don’t use Hosting Servers from Godaddy, and the reason is obvious (at least for me), they have various pricy and low cost plans which makes it difficult to take an action buying Godaddy Hosting.

I recently used Godaddy’s Managed WordPress Hosting, though I used a Delux Package almost $5 per month, loaded more than 10 plugins and parallex theme but site was quickly loaded for each hard refresh. These surprising results gave me hiccups and I loaded the site in LoadImpact, every time I got different results, however I found the reason explained by Wpsitecare.

Never Test Godaddy Hosting on LoadImpact

Godaddy uses a security layer Sentinel to block Dos attacks from a same IP, which means a group of users can’t access a site hosted on Godaddy’s server from a same IP, resulting the site downtime.

I gave up testing Godaddy Hosting on Loadimpact.
