Looking to purchase a server that’s optimized for WordPress but not sure where to bring your business? The difference between purchasing a managed WordPress server and a standard server that you put WordPress onto yourself is that with servers that have been “optimized” for WordPress, your host often takes care of things like WordPress updates, site-transfers, security, and even backups for you so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself. They’re more expensive than the cheapest options for non-WordPress optimized servers, but they’re not a bad idea if you’re not tech-savvy or if you don’t have time to stay on-top of things like updates. Here’s a list of the most popular, affordable, and reliable hosted WordPress options:
Hostgator offers WordPress hosting at competitive prices. They offer free site migration and high speeds.
Bluehost is one of the cheapest options for WordPress hosting, with basic plans starting at just $2.95/month.
Inmotion is great because it’s most basic managed WordPress package comes with unlimited bandwidth, disk space, and emails. Definitely one of the best values out there.
Dreamhost’s managed WordPress packages are on the more expensive side, but they come with great features, like no bandwidth caps, high speeds, unlimited email accounts, 24/7 support hours, and unlimited theme access.
