    My ranked site has been hacked and flagged as not safe to browse by big G ,FF and Chrome browser. I am planning to rebuild the site with new domain on a new host. I lost 3 months of effort and the site and don't want that to happen again.
    Please suggest secure hosting for WordPress blog and any tips to prevent WordPress hacking in future.

    More important than choosing the right host is to not use nulled templates, always keep WP updated and unistall obsolete plugins.

    The problem isnt with your hosting its with your wordpress install getting hacked. What you need to do is make sure your wordpress is always up to date and likewise with theme and plugins.

    I'd like to point out that http://downtownhost.com/ is a good choice for those who need professional wordpress hosting. I'm also happy with the performance and reliability of the service. I was pleasantly surprised by the backup tools you provide which I did not expect at all.

    I found that hostgator gives you more value for your buck, they have web hosting plans that meets everyone needs and its pretty cheap,to get 30% all the plans use the link below, for the baby plan you get unlimited web sites, web site building tools and 100$ of bing and google adwords. pretty good deal. This is the link to get 30% off:

    If you ask me, I consider DailyRazor.com to be a good option for hosting web sites.
    The customer service is friendly and has always been great. Prompt replies are given to any queries and the use of live support over MSN is extremely helpful.

    We can host your site and help you out with security. A lot of the times with wordpress its not the host but the template that you are using, plug in's and so on.

    A few things to remember

    Update passwords dont use something simple
    Keep all plugins up to date
    update the theme for your site
    delete all non used themes and plug ins

    Have a look at hosting services from wmd.hosting and panamaserver.com, prices are low and uptime is high.
    Support is active for 24 hours and they fix issues very fast.

    There are so many WordPress Plugins available on the internet. What's most important is choosing trusted ones for your website. I understand how difficult it would be to lose a site so strong and original as yours. A hosting site is important, I prefer hostgator or bluehost.

    Dreamhost is a good web host for blogs.
    I'll recommend bluehost because I got a lot of disappointments from its services a few months ago. I'll also not recommend Hostgator because I got bad reviews about it.

    Been hosting with kvchosting.com for quite a long time, and I'm very impressed indeed.
    The crazy part is that I get support responses in HOURS, not days. Most of my questions are answered in less than 1-2 hours, which is fantastic.

    Not to use nulled themes or plugins, update wordpress to latest. and try to use some security plugin if you want extra security.

    Stay away from EIG companies (Hostgator,bluehost,ipage,fatcow).


    They used to clean your site for free, but now make you buy Sitelock.
