For most small business owners, managing their own website can be a hassle. There are services such as Wix and Squarespace that are really good, but for most businesses, they need just a bit more.
We’ve been building sites and managing WordPress sites via Dreamhost since 2008. Dreamhost is a great cloud hosting service that has proven to us time and again they are the best web hosting for WordPress. Why? Here are a few great reasons:
- Cost to Value: Their hosting costs for a basic plan all the way to advanced is very reasonable. Plus, they haven’t really raised their rates over the past 10 years.
- Ease of Use: Their management interface is extremely user friendly and they continue to improve on it. In our video below, you will see how intuitive it is to create an account and launch a WordPress site.
- Support: All plans include tech support. Their chat support is stellar. Anytime we’ve seen issue with an upgrade or something, a knowledgeable tech support person was available within minutes via chat support. Also, their knowledgebase is very comprehensive and easily searchable.
- Security: This should really be #1 considering all the breaches that are happening. But, nonetheless, Dreamhost security is top notch. With their basic+ plan, they will scan your site and all files on your web server to insure there are no breaches. If they find something, they send an email immediately with a detailed plan to remediate.
