Hostgator is one of the veterans in the hosting world. Personally, we have been using Hostgator for some projects ever since 2012.

You can get a great hosting option from as low as $2.88 a month, which is pretty close to FREE. If that amount of money is too expensive, you are simply doing something wrong.

Hostgator has been improving their service lately and have really improved the quality of hosting and even offer a free domain for every new hosting account and FREE SSL.



One of the cheapest WordPress hosting companies that you can find. Not only do they have great prices for hosting and domains but they are even recommended by WordPress themselves.



We have recently started to recommend SiteGround as our top “go-to” hosting company. We even recently added a specific post stating just that. After using SiteGround, reading many Facebook reviews of SiteGround, and checking it out deeper that any other hosting company, we can honestly say that you cannot go wrong with SiteGround.

The combination of amazing speed, quality and customer service have made them our #1 hosting company.
