WordPress Hosting Providers for 2018
Are you looking to move to managed WordPress hosting? If you’ve been using shared hosting but find it no longer powerful enough for your site, this post is for you.
I’ve talked before about how shared hosting is best for a new blog. But as your blog traffic grows, you need to think about upgrading your hosting. Shared hosts can’t handle really high traffic sites, which means you’ll have to move up.
All the way back in 2008, I started ShoutMeLoud on cheap shared DreamHost hosting. But as ShoutMeLoud grew, I knew I needed to upgrade my blog’s hosting to keep everything running smoothly.
That’s why I eventually made the switch to managed WordPress hosting. I moved through a few managed hosts until I found Kinsta, which is where I currently host ShoutMeLoud. Kinsta is definitely one of the best-managed WordPress hosts, but I’ll also list some other good ones at the end of this post.
If you’re a newbie, I still think you can go with a cheap WordPress host. If your blog is starting to gain some traffic, though, you should definitely look at managed WordPress hosting.
Before I tell you the best hosts, I want to share a little about what you should expect from a good managed WordPress host.
