We have a very detailed guide on a ton of different web hosts you could consider using as well as their pros and cons. This resource page I’m just going to layout three web hosts you should be aware of and why.
SiteGround – Best For Websites at 100,000 Pageviews or LESS
SiteGround – I like to joke that everyone and their grandmother promotes Blue Host. Blue Host is not a bad host, it’s just that SiteGround provides fast hosting, costs only a few more dollars per month (like $3 more roughly when comparing similar plans) and is also recommended by WordPress.
You also get a massive 70% discount on your purchase price too when signing up through the link on this page!
So SiteGround is the perfect host?
No of course not. The issue most have with SiteGround is that they’re not ideal for websites that get viral traffic. If you have a niche website that gets a few thousand visitors a day SiteGround is perfect. If you’re going to be getting massive spikes in traffic however, SiteGround is not going to be too happy.
For anyone just starting out, SiteGround is the perfect host (opens in a new tab) because they provide fast hosting and the support you need.
WPX Hosting – Best For Websites Over 100,000 Pageviews
I love WPX hosting. They are an excellent option for those of you who have an established website that is getting over 100,000 pageviews a month. Clean, simply user interface. The best customer support I’ve experienced, inexpensive considering the support and speed you get. Very fast server response times.
They really are that great.
The only con is that they’re not ideal for new websites with no traffic. Stick with SiteGround, then upgrade when it makes sense. WPX provides free site migration so it’s a headache free process from moving from a different web host.
*websitecreativepro.com is currently hosted with WPX. We outgrew SiteGround but still have multiple websites hosted with SG.
Kinsta – Best For Websites Over 500,000 Pageviews
Kinsta is the choice of professionals who run large websites. If you have a website or a collection of websites that are doing 500,000 or more pageviews a month you should consider going with Kinsta.
They have the support and the technical infrastructure designed to handle high traffic websites that routinly get big spikes in traffic from sources like Pinterest and Facebook.
Most don’t hear about Kinsta because they are designed for a niche market. Those who actually have large profitable websites. If you don’t even have a website setup yet, it’s crazy to go with Kinsta.
Kinsta is like the final boss of web hosts. You go with them after you’ve built a profitable business and if that’s you, check them out. They’re easily one of the best web hosts on the market right now.
