Web hosting is one of the most basic requirements if you want to make your own business website or a blog online. Web hosting companies provide storage space on the World Wide Web where you can place your website along with all the settings and make it available for users mapped with a domain name.
For example atishranjan.com is a domain name which is like the address of the blog which fetches the files stored on my web hosting space purchased from a web hosting company in order to show the users a full-fledged blog.
So, if you are thinking to get your blog live on self hosted domain & hosting, you should know about the best hosting companies providing the better services.
Before I recommend 5 best web hosting services, I would like you to know the important factors you should consider while choosing a web host for your blog. Here are few of those factors:
Monetary consideration is the foremost thing when you buy and product or service. When you plan to buy hosting you should check out the pricing of best providers and accordingly plan with which you want to go.
However, you should always check services offered with respect to prices they are asking because many times companies ask for lesser price and you get attracted but later you come to know that they are not giving you much of add-ons, flexibilities and services. Also the up time is less. So beware!
Hosting space and bandwidth
You should always check how much space you are getting so that you can compare with your requirement. Many hosting provider give unlimited space and few limited.
Bandwidth is what how much visitors your site can bear per month thus always choose the service which offers enough or unlimited bandwidth.
This is indeed important for bloggers that their blog should be up all the time. You can experience downtimes with cheaper hosting services thus you should inquire here and there about uptime of web hosts and accordingly choose the best.
Now this is crucial part of any hosting companies. Many companies provide email support only, few offer both email and chat support, Few even offer phone support. So, always choose the ones which are offering chat support at least. Chat support is indeed needed because it is fastest means of getting support.
Many of us likes to work with Cpanel thus always check which kind of control panel they are offering because many offer cpanel, few of them offer their own custom control panel or few of them offer Plesk. So it is must that you check this requirement as well.
There are many other features you should check before choosing the hosting space. Few are:
- How many domains you can add.
- How many Databases you can create
- How many sub-domains you can add
- Check if there are add-ons like WordPress quick install and others.
- Loading speed.
- Back up services.
These are few basic requirements you should check out before buying web hosting however, there are many more factors you can check as per your requirement.
Now, let me list out 5 best web hosting services for bloggers based on my personal experience. Also, most of the bloggers use WordPress CMS thus the preference of hosting companies are as per wordpress.
Here goes the list of 5 best web hosting services for bloggers:
I have recently started using bluehost for few of my blogs and I am impressed with the services offered by them. Being a new user, I cannot assure that it’s the best but when you start reading its reviews online, you will come to know that it is the best hosting provider for bloggers.
It offers 4 types of hosting plan to choose as per your requirement:

This is the hosting provider which is not so famous among the bloggers yet but it is one of the best providers and I am with them for more than 4 years now. My popular blog Techtricksworld.com is hosted there only.
Their chat support is just more than amazing. Even bluehost or hostgator chat support are not that great!

Being honest, I don’t have experience with them but my friends are using and they give good review about it thus, this one is also one of the best web hosting service providers.
They have multiple web hosting plans such as:

Their WordPress hosting is the best suit for bloggers because the service is amazing in which there are many things which are being done automatically like daily back up and all this on good price. Check out its offerings here.
I have no personal experience with Justhost but few of my clients and friends are using and they are pretty satisfied with them. They have multiple packages which you can check out by clicking this link.
So these are one of the best web hosting services online which are proved to be the most trusted and reliable. Though, I have used Hawkhost and Arvixe as well. Initial days were ok with Arvixe but later it became pain for me and that made me cancel my subscription with them. However, there are many satisfied customers it has. Click here to go to their home page.
If I talk about Hawkhost, then they are really cool and I have been using its services for more than 1.5 years. No complaints yet! Check out its offerings by clicking here.

Its nice to see that you’ve updated your personal blog after a long time. I know that you’re hell lot of busy with office and family. Taking care is most important, please take care of yourself.
Coming to the post, I’d say that it is a beneficial post for the newbie and fellow bloggers to choose the best hosting service for their blog/blogs.
You suggested one.com for Mymagicfudas, I’m still getting quality service from them and didn’t face any issue till now. So, I’d recommend it for any blogger who are in need of reliable hoster. I don’t know about other hosting service providers.
Hope you had a great and relaxed weekend, thanks for crafting this post for us 🙂

Well, I haven’t tried those services in the past, but I use SiteGround for my blog. It works just fine. I think I should try one of the services you have mentioned above. Which one is the best? 🙂
Tim Jacobs recently posted…How to Save Money on Web Hosting Services?
Thanks for coming by. Web hosting companies are like the one which is working fine for you is the best. I have been listening online mixed opinion from users about every web hosting company. For me, all that I listed worked fine to me as I have practically used them.
Hello Atish Sir,
I like your article on best web hostings. But, the list you prepared is very much common and most of the bloggers can’t go with their dream hosting like Bluehost. So, I would like to suggest to prepare an article on cheap web hosting like A small orange, host1plus.

I will look into it. Thanks.
Wow!! I love the first part on what to look for when it comes to hosting. I was just wondering how comes you did not feature Siteground? Since it seems to be most recommended hosting company in the interwebs today.
Nice post but I think Siteground is missing in your list. Siteground deserves at least second position. Siteground provide perfect hosting for bloggers.
I got Awesome list of cheap hosting providers. I will give a try to bluehost for my next project.
Thank you Atish Ranjan Keep it up.
Hi Atish, Based on my experience BlueHost is no doubt the best and if you are really tight on budget ipage is also not too bad.
Thank you for your article. Dreamhost is good but Namecheap’s web hosting isn’t bad at all! They provide web hosting at cheap prices.
I’m using HostGator and Bluehost for a long time now and I loved both of them. I have faced a lot of issues with Godaddy hosting and that’s why I shifted to these web hosting service providers
