So in the last couple of weeks I had a bit of an issue with my server. Automatic plugin updates didn’t work as I wanted them to, WP-Cron didn’t work, and although I was able to fix all those I felt unhappy. I want my hosting party to take care of that stuff, and not think about it myself, so I started looking around. Turns out, WordPress hosting has become a fairly popular business.
I was checking the list of WordPress recommended hosting parties (you can find that here), and noticed one that I hadn’t seen on there before, called WestHost. Turns out these guys were #1 most reliable hosting provider according to Netcraft four times in 2008, including November and December.
Their admins and support people also are top-notch (and all US based), I’ve never seen a migration handled as smoothly as they did. So, I can now honestly say I can recommend you to use WestHost for all your WordPress hosting needs, at $6.95 a month for their blog package, which even includes one free domain, they’re not exactly what I’d call expensive either.
So, if you’re wondering about which WordPress hosting package to go for, here’s the answer: go for WestHost.
