Find Out Which WordPress Web Hosting Company Offers the Cheapest and Reliable Web Hosting Solution

My friend ask me to look for a good WordPress web hosting company that offers cheap but reliable WordPress web hosting solution for quite a while. The keywords here are cheap and reliable and for some reason these two words do not want to go together very well  
If you are willing to pay big money then you have nothing to worry about… your options are endless. My focus is finding that sweet spot where reliability meets affordability. I update this page with my findings on affordable WordPress web hosting solutions. Hopefully this information will be of some help to someone looking for a good WordPress web hosting company.

Little Background

I am very strict when it comes to the reliability of the web hosting company. Server uptime and the server response time is very important for anyone who has a website doing whatever business that they are doing. If your site is down when a visitor or customer goes to your site then you are losing traffic and business. In addition to losing temporary customers, if your site goes down frequently then there is a good chance that your customers will get annoyed and will try to avoid coming to your site in the future.
Most web hosting companies guarantee 99.9% Server uptime but in reality a lot of them do not deliver 99.9% server uptime that they guarantee. Most of the time you won’t even know that your site was down and you lost customers. None of your visitors complained doesn’t really mean that your site was up 100% that month.

I am particularly interested in a reseller account. A reseller account that allows you to create multiple cPanel based websites. The ability to create multiple cPanel based website is really useful as each website has individual cPanel control panel for administration purpose. Not many of the cheap web hosting companies offer reseller account with the ability to create multiple cPanel based websites.

When I First Started

I was with Surpass Hosting and even though they have a 99.9% uptime guarantee, recently my site has been going down frequently. When you complain to them they reply to you with the result of the UNIX ‘uptime’ command which shows the length of time the system has been up, saying our servers were up all month! The system was up all month doesn’t necessarily mean that your site wasn’t down (The CPU load could have been at 100% so it wasn’t processing any other requests and hence your site was not accessible).
I have decided to change my web hosting provider and after doing some research I found that Web Hosting Buzz offers the cheapest reseller hosting solutions and looks reliable (from their server uptime data). So I decided to give web hosting buzz a try but it didn’t work out very well (read below for details).
Update (3 Months Later) – Migration to WebHostingBuzz
WebHostingBuzz offers Reseller accounts from $5 per month with some great features. They have 99.9% server uptime gurantee. You can check their server uptime history from WebHostingBuz Server Uptime figures. WebHostingBuzz website has Google page rank of 7/10 (Page Rank reflects Google’s view of the importance of the web page). I tend to use the website’s page ranking as a trust factor. A website with high Google page rank is less likely to be a fraud.

Web hosting buzz offers pretty cheap reseller account but is it reliable? It looks reliable from the Server uptime data but I will have to see how I go with them to be sure.

Update (6 Months Later)
The reseller account wasn’t doing it for me so I decided to give’s Virtual Private Server (VPS) a try as my traffic has gone up heaps since I first signed up with them. The VPS upgrade was a disaster… they probably put me on an overpopulated sever so my site response time was horrible. After having a chat with their support team they made it seem like it was my fault for using WordPress. Over time my site is going to grow so it is important that the hosting solution is scalable and Web Hosting Buzz’s VPS was just a mess not to mention that they were charging $8 per month extra for using cPanel! I knew it was time for me to look for another hosting solution.

Update (7 Months Later) – Migration to InMotionHosting
I started looking and InMotionHosting seemed to be a good hosting provider so I signed up with them and now I am really happy with my site response time and InMotionHosting charges less than WebHostingBuzz for the same plan. I later upgraded my hosting plan to a dedicated server.

Update (1 Year Later)
I am still with InMotionHosting and everything is going well. I have also signed up with MediaTemple to host some of my other sites and they seem to be really good too.

Update (2 Years Later)
I needed another hosting account for one of my new sites so this time I signed up with West Host after taking Yoast’s advice and West Host seem to be good too.

Update (3 Years Later)
My hosting needs continue to grow. This time I wanted to try the new cloud hosting solution mainly because it can be scaled very easily. Cloud hosting’s scaling and self healing abilities make it a very compelling solution for my needs. One thing to keep in mind is that the cloud hosting may not be suitable for people who are not familiar with UNIX systems (unless you go with a managed option which can become very expensive).

Update (4 Years Later)
I have signed up for an account from WPEngine. It is not working out very well at the moment based on how much I have to pay and what I get. I might cancel this account.

Update (5 Years Later)
I have singed up with Hostgator and Bluehost this year.

Update (5 Years 6 Months Later)
I had to get rid of my hosting account with West Host. They were having a lot of outages on my server which brought the site up-time data below 97% and it went on for a few months. So I decided to move away from them.

Update (6 Years 4 Months Later)
GoDaddy recently acquired MediaTemple hosting. I have a thing about Godaddy doing webhosting (I don’t like their hosting) so I switched my site that was on MediaTemple to DreamHost.

Update (7 Years Later)
I have created a test account with A2 Hosting. Their WordPress hosting looks pretty good. I particularly like how their SSD (Solid State Drive) hosting option looks reasonable.

Update (7 Years 6 Months Later)
I purchased hosting from A2 Hosting for one of my small sites. However, I am not very satisfied with their server performance. So, even though I am using it for one of my small sites, I wouldn’t recommend users to buy hosting from them.
It looks like A2 Hosting has picked up their game. I ordered a new “Turbo” WordPress hosting plan from them (for a new site) and it has been working really good so far. The server’s performance is very good. Ordering and installing SSL certificate was a breeze. The SSL certificate pricing is very affordable. Server response time is really good (given it is a shared hosting). The uptime was 99.98% for the month, this is real uptime as I use external tool to check all my site’s uptime.

Update (8 Years Later)
I have received a few complaints about Bluehost from my users. I have had a bad experience with them also. So I have cancelled my account with Bluehost at the moment.

Update (8 Years 5 Months Later)
I have signed up for a 2nd dedicated server from InMotion Hosting for another WordPress site. The server performance, price and support looks very reasonable to me. They are offering free SSL certificate too.

My Current Webhost Providers

Currently I have hosting accounts from the following 4 hosting providers and I am happy with them:
1. InMotionHosting
2. A2 Hosting
3. DreamHost
4. HostGator

Short List of Cheap and Good Web Hosting Companies

Below is a short list of web hosting companies that provide affordable and reliable web hosting solutions. If you are starting a WordPress site, you should consider getting hosting from one of the following providers.

• Inmotion Hosting
• A2 Hosting
• Bluehost
• HostGator
• DreamHost

I find that the users using these hosting providers face less issues when using e-commerce solution on their sites.
Avoid Godaddy Hosting
I find that Godaddy gives out a lot of poorly configured server for their shared hosting plans. Issues include: PayPal IPN getting blocked, email related issues, PHP Session not working, etc.
So I recommend avoiding their shared hosting plan (buying domain names from them is fine).
Which Hosting Do I Recommend for a Startup Business?

There are a lot of super cheap hosting packages out there but the hassle that comes with those will cost you way more money and time in the long run (don’t get sucked in by the *unlimited* promise). Changing web hosting is a tiresome task that you should try to avoid as much as you can. The amount of mis-configured servers that I encounter while troubleshooting our Premium WordPress plugins is just mind boggling.

Good Domain Name Picking Tips for Your Blog Setup

The first thing that comes to my mind when setting up a blog is getting a good domain name. In this article, I have described why I think it is important to choose a good domain name upfront. I have also explained how you can pick a good domain name for your blog or website followed by some domain name picking tips and general outlines (“dos” and “don’t s”).

Why pick a good domain name for your blog
Apart from many other reasons, you want to pick a good domain name for your blog/site from the start, because most likely you will be stuck with that domain name for the rest of the blog’s life. You may change the domain hosting provider from time to time depending on how reliable your current domain hosting provider is but the domain name will remain the same.
The reason I say that you will be stuck with that name is mainly because changing the domain name is kind of like starting all over again from the start and you don’t want to do that once your site is established and getting regular traffic and you have built up a brand. You will start with ‘0’ Google Page rank and will have to work your way up again if you do change the domain name in the middle. The Alexa rank and other ranking metrics will drop too because all these rankings are associated with the domain name. So the bottom line is that you want to pick a good domain name that you can live with from the start. Now, the question is how?

How to pick a good domain name for your blog
I don’t think that there are any hard rules as to how a domain name should be picked, so use the following points as a guideline for choosing your domain name:

Use Keywords: Use keywords in the domain name that describe your site (if it makes sense). The domain name should suggest the nature of your product or service. A good domain name describes exactly what the site is about. It is important for a visitor to get an idea of what the website is about just by looking at the domain name. For example, if your site is about antiques and collectibles then try to get a domain name like “” or “www.collectibles”.com not “”.

Easy to remember: A domain name should be easy to remember becuase your visitors will want to type in the domain name in the web browser for revisits and if they can’t remember the domain name then you run the risk of losing potential traffic. It is also easier to spread the word of mouth when the domain name is easy to remember.

Keep the domain name short: A domain name should be short with less than 10 characters. It also helps the “Easy to remember” point when the name is short. Although, these days it’s incredibly hard to get domain names that are short. Basically you don’t want to end up with a super long domain name like “”. When the name gets too long it gets confusing and the name can be easily mistyped in the browser.

Use hyphens if needed: Use hyphen (-) in between the words if needed for your domain name. If “” is taken then you can try “”. Using hyphen(s) in between the words sometimes help to improve readability. It can also help in the Search engine rankings.

Make it easy to type: Try to get a domain name that is easy to type (if you can). Easy to type domain names are good for branding.
Think Local: If your business is local then think about adding your region, city or state in the domain name (example: Only do it if it makes sense though.

Domain name extension: Try to get the “.com” Top Level Domain (TLD) extension as it is the most popular. It is also the most widely accepted domain name extension. When people think about an website, their mind automatically pictures “” as the address. You can also use the “.net” and “.org” extensions if you cannot find a “.com” extension.
Should You Use or
If the main commodity of your business is YOU then use as your domain name. This works out good if you are an author, speaker, coach etc.
If your business is based around a product or a service then use or your

Some General things to be aware of
Legal conflicts: Spend a bit of time searching around to make sure you are not choosing a domain name that is similar to an already established rival. You don’t want to spend time building your blog only to find out that someone else has a similar website and wants to sue you.

Avoid Copyright Issues: Make sure the name you are going to use is not copyrighted.

Be aware of the scammers: There are a lot of scammers around, so try to make sure you buy your domain name from a registrar who is in the ICANN’s (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) accredited registrar’s list.
Go Daddy offers cheap domain name registration. Try not to buy hosting from them though… read the following article before you signup for a hosting account. also offers cheap domain name registration.
As I have mentioned earlier that these rules are not set in stone. Don’t be afraid to add your own flavor. Use common knowledge and be sensible. Try your best and get creative. What is your best tip in choosing a good domain name?
