Not all web hosts are created equally! Here are a few managed WordPress Hosts that I recommend:
SiteGround is one of the most popular and highest rated hosting provider in the WordPress community. They provide unique in-house WordPress speed and security solutions to make your site as fast and secure as possible. They are known for their 24/7 support in the industry which is why they’re an official “WordPress” recommended hosting provider. SiteGround features include automatic upgrades, built-in WP caching, CDN, one-click staging and GIT version control.
InMotion Hosting prides themselves on their excellent customer support. They boast about US-based tech support via phone, chat, email, or ticket system.
Also, many hosting companies put low limits on data backups. If you have an image-heavy website, you may quickly find yourself with no emergency backup. InMotion has generous backup limits to give your data and extra safety net, and the automatic backups are free. In comparison, HostGator does automated backups for free every week, but charges $19 to retrieve the backup.
