    Hi currently in the stages of building a new authority website (3+ year project), and looking at hosting. I'm looking to start the site on a basic shared hosting (save costs), then scaling up the servcer from there when it gets traffic. Any recommendations for a reliable service?

    I don't mind paying a little premium. Looking for reputable companies. Hostgator hatchling plan is currently top of my list as i've used them before and never had issues, but want to see what else is out there.

    The site will be built on wordpress aswell.

    Cheers,
    AZ

    For premium shared hosting providers, I'd recommend StableHost & EuroVPS(European Location). If HostGator works for you, it doesn't matter. But, I'd recommend you to find another host(s) before bad thing happen to you.

    I can't comment on a good service for shared hosting but one thing you will want to make a note of is thatif the provider can easily bump you up to a VPS or dedicated server when you are ready, and if they can do a free upgrade.

    Had an account with InMotionHosting for 7 years. Haven't had any issues with their shared hosting.

    I like StableHost so far

    Here is a coupon for 50% off lifetime for shared hosting if you pay yearly: USYEARLY
