Recommended Hosting Providers (alphabetical order):

 

A2 Hosting is the likely fastest web hosting provider you can rely on, and it’s simply great for all businesses: but this is just the best feature provided, among many others.

If you are starting out, or if you want to boost your server’s performance, this hosting can be the best choice to make.

Bluehost is better suited to people who are working on a personal project/business, or online stores with a few products.

Moreover, it has the likely best introductory price currently available, and it’s easy to use.

DreamHost was built primarily with WordPress users in mind, it presents great plans, offers, and the possibility to adapt your website to all needs.

It’s one the very best choices for people who are starting out, but great also for more experienced users.

GoDaddy presents a simply huge offer, this may confuse some people, not to mention that you must pay for many features (provided for free by many other providers, like in the case of SSL certificates).

We recommend GoDaddy for people who want to spend a bit more money to make an outstanding website, by taking great advantage of their premium offers.

GreenGeeks is the best hosting provider if you consider the global impact of the internet industry on the planet, but it also has great offers and plans (it only deserves to be more and better known).

Surprisingly, they also provide a great series of plans for more advanced users, meaning that this hosting is a must for all businesses.

HostGator likely has the best customer support, which is great for people who are not advanced users: not to mention the impressive Website Builder they provide (but it’s not for all).

In addition, it has been built with WordPress in mind, and for sure you will not be disappointed at all by their features.

Finally, they also provide great Cloud plans and more advanced solutions for any kind of business.

Hostinger is the one we presented in the previous section, it has the likely best offer “in the middle” if you consider shared hosting from one side, and managed hosting from the other.

It presents one of the largest offers you can possibly find, that’s why it’s suitable for new businesses, as well as more established ones.

HostPapa is another great company, however, you can find some controversies when browsing web hosting reviews websites.

They are very good when it comes to shared hosting plans, but also more specific ones, such as email hosting, and more advanced solutions.

For sure, this hosting needs to be better known.

If you are an advanced user, or if you own an established business, you definitely should consider this web hosting provider.

InMotion Hosting presents an outstanding offer, made for experts and people who already have knowledge of the online business, so we don’t really recommend it to people who are starting out.

However, if you are an expert, you’re going to find an amazing experience with this company.

If you are an advanced user, or if you own an established business, you definitely should consider this web hosting provider.

LiquidWeb presents an outstanding offer, made for experts and people who already have knowledge of the online business, so we don’t really recommend it to people who are starting out.

However, if you are an expert, you’re going to find an amazing experience with this company.

 

If you want to work on shared hosting plans, and you still like LiquidWeb, you should consider using their recommended shared hosting solution (they have a special partnership with this company).

iThemes presents a great offer for Shared Hosting, and we like it a lot especially because it gives you the opportunity to set up your website and business very well, then you’ll find it easy to switch to more advanced plans provided by LiquidWeb.

That’s why we list this opportunity here because you’re going to like it as well.

SiteGround is just great, a bit expensive for some people, but you have a great starter program, with the possibility to grow your business (and website) in the easiest way possible.

We recommend it as the #1 choice for all types of websites.

Recommended Domain Registrar:

 

Namesilo is our #1 choice for registering a new domain, and also to keep domains safe and separate from hosting providers. You can manage everything from one single panel, not to mention the two great additional benefits.

First of all, you will pay $8/year for both registering and renewing a domain name, which is the most convenient offer currently available on the net.

Then, you have the WHOIS Privacy certificate for FREE with all domains.

Other Recommended Resources:

 

Backupbuddy is one of the very best WP plugins to make backup easier and faster. Not to mention the ease of moving sites, especially if you need to do that because of some security reasons.

We definitely recommend it.

In short, this is the best choice to go for, if you’re not familiar with doing manual backups directly from cPanel (of course Backupbuddy should be the #1 choice for people who work on hosting providers with no cPanel available).

iThemes Security PRO is for sure one of the very best solutions for keeping your website safer and cleaner. We do recommend checking this wonderful product to see for yourself its great features, and how they can bring benefit to your online business, whatever it is.

There are several alternatives, however, we want to outline some important features.

For instance, the “away mode”, or the possibility to hide login and admin, not to mention strong password enhancements, and file chance detection, one of the top-notch features to consider.
