Best WordPress Web Hosting Companies 2015
When it comes to web hosting on WordPress or any website, your web hosting company can play a critical role for maximizing your success online. As with anything, you pay for what you get in most cases and web hosting is the first step in laying a good foundation for your online presence. I’ve listed some of the best web hosting companies for 2015 you should consider for a variety of factors:
- Site Speed – Google places a huge emphasis on how fast your page loads in it’s ranking algorithm. Response times, security and bandwidth are key components of any web hosting company
- Price – You want the most bang for your buck when it comes to web hosting, but don’t jeopardize quality service over a few bucks a month. You can find web hosting for $3 a month, though you could be stuck in a “shared hosting” environment that is oversubscribed. That means slow load times and usually poor customer service.
- Customer Service – Trust me, things will come up and you will want to talk to a live body in the middle of the night at times. An established hosting company has the staff, chat support and live phone support that can come in handy in critical situations. We offer resller hosting for some of our clients where we provide web services, and we use the backbone of one of the providers on this list for that very reason.
- Hosting Equipment – Again, a larger hosting provider will have state of the art equipment that will improve your site speed and security. Consider using a a CDN (Content Delivery Network) such as Cloud Flare. This will give you faster delivery times in a cloud hosted environment that’s more secure as well.
- Security – I keep mentioning security because I got hacked once, and it was an EXTREMELY painful experience! Avoid this by getting Site Lock or similar service through the hosting company. When I got hacked, my sites went down for two days, and it took me over a week of work to get most of it straightened out.
Ok so let’s get to our list of Best Web Hosting Companies for 2015
1. Siteground Hosting for WordPress – Resellers
- Small businesses & blogs
- USA / Europe / Asia
I’ve ranked Siteground as my number 1 web host. Not only for their outstanding user satisfaction rating, but also for their long list of features and plans, which can be carefully tailored to suit you. They have 24/7 live phone support, chat support and it’s instantaneous typically. Nice looking, easy to use control panel.
They host more than a quarter of a million domains, manage 1,000s of servers across three countries and over the last 30 days had an uptime of 99.99%.

Plans from $3.99 / per Month InMotion Hosting has been providing web hosting services since 2001. They’re so confident that you’ll be satisfied with their service that they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

3. Green Geeks Web Hosting – Great Reseller Plans and Shared Hosting
- Excellent Reseller Plans, possibly the best value for WordPress hosting
- Fast Speeds in a shared environment
GreenGeeks offers low prices for shared hosting and often there are discounts for new customers. I consider it one of the best web hosting services available because of its unlimited options, readily available support, and website building and management tools. However, if your website uses a lot of server resources or you have bulk email campaigns, you may run into issues with GreenGeeks.
4. BlueHost Web Hosting
Founded in 2003 and part of the Endurance family since 2010, Bluehost aims to make a better hosting experience. And with shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting packages, they’re clearly doing a good job. They’re doing so well in fact that they’re one of the few hosting companies actually recommended by WordPress. Bluehost has excellent customer service 24/7. They actually try to help you fix problems and I used them for years.
Honorable Mentions for Best Web Hosting Companies 2015
Web Hosting Hub
A niche site working for small businesses, Web Hosting Hub (the sister site of InMotion) offers shared hosting only. But what they lack in diversity, they make up for with features, add-ons, and small business services. With design tools and designers on hand, they’ll a one-stop shop for small businesses.
Arvixe Web Hosting Service
Michigan-based A2 Hosting gives users some of the fastest hosting services on the market. Built entirely on SSD drives and constantly tinkering to make servers go even faster, A2 Hosting is the Rolls Royce of the hosting world. And with a 30 day money back guarantee and 24/7 support, it’s clear that they put the customer first.
HostGator WordPress Hosting Company
HostGator is one of the best known hosting sites in the world. They are super cheap, have live support and is very popular due to heavy marketing. Owned by Endurance International since 2012 and with a slew of awards and positive reviews, HostGator’s simple but robust plans are always a crowd pleaser. With simple, unlimited shared plans and variety of VPS, reseller, and dedicated packages, HostGator always has something for everyone. If you’re going to grow, however, I don’t recommend Host Gator long term as a hosting company due to over-subscription.
