Not all hosting is equal! Let our experience be a guide in choosing your next WordPress website hosting provider.
There are several factors to consider when choosing a hosting provider for your WordPress website. Cost, speed, reliability, and security are all important, but above all you want to be sure of the quality of support provided. The hosts listed below are, in our opinion, the very best available to the self-hosted WordPress user. They all support one click-installation of WordPress, support for Google Apps for Work, and Cloudflare. We’re continually working with new hosts, so new providers will be added when we see a good one out there. If you have a favorite web host that you feel should be included on this page, please email us with your recommendation to email@example.com
Bluehost is part of a very small group of hosts that have been officially recommended by WordPress.org and are described as one of “the best and brightest of the hosting world.” For this reason, and many others, Bluehost has become the go-to host for WordPress websites for many in the industry. It offers pricing as low as $4.95/mo, unlimited domain hosting, unlimited email and much-much more!
DreamPress is a powerful managed WordPress hosting platform built by DreamHost, an official WordPress recommended web host that’s been around since 1997. DreamPress is packaged with multiple layers of caching, isolated server resources, and a highly tuned version of PHP to ensure speed and performance. With DreamPress, WordPress is pre-installed and preconfigured, and updates are automatic, making it easy to get started and maintain. Nimbus Theme users get a special offer!
WP Engine advertises itself as providing “insanely fast” hosting with “robust scalabilty.” As far as we’re concerned, it doesn’t under-deliver in the least. It’s the new kid on the block, providing a cutting-edge product that includes built-in caching and automated backups. WP Engine is so confident in its security that if your website is hacked, it will take care of the cleanup. It may not be the cheapest option, but it might just provide the most bang for your buck.
Media Temple’s Managed WordPress hosting boasts “a blazing-fast, rock-solid managed hosting platform, optimized to the exacting standards of professional WordPress designers and developers,” and it delivers just that. It offers a custom control panel that makes setting up and configuring your WordPress install simple, fast, and headache free. The amazing team at Media Temple has configured the environment to perfectly run WordPress with nearly none of the configuration required to manage a VSP account.
If you already have active WordPress website, or if you need a scalable solution, then Media Temple’s DV VSP hosting is the way to go. We use a DV account to host all of the Nimbus Themes websites and couldn’t be happier. If you’re not familiar with Apache or comfortable with the Parallels Plesk control panel, you may need the assistance of a developer. They promise “99.999% uptime guaranteed!” and they’ve never let us down.
