    Background: about a year ago i made the mistake of purchasing a wix subscription and making my website on there (website looks great its just waay to slow) and since then i've put the actual website on the back burner while i work on my social media presence in order to gain traffic from there when the time is right.

    Question: Now im looking to create my website on the wordpress platform. So what is the the preferred hosting company? i know that wordpress offers theirs own package is theirs sufficient?

    -will the hosting be able to support 1M+ page views a month? (yes ambitious, but i believe its very much attainable in the next year)
    -it will be a news/blog type site with an store.


    Thank you for your input.

    Well, 1M+/mo users needs powerful VPS at least. So I'd recommend Hostwinds for that.

    What will the website be about? If you are looking for something very affordable, have a look at HoboHost.

    Really any good and Great web host can do this for you. Most host that claim to offer wordpress hosting are just putting on a shared server with there regular shared hosting customers so dont let the marketing gimmicks trick you on that.

    Any basic cpanel can be used for wordpress, as far as i know. Stay away from "dot.easy" as they will ask for blood to cancel your subscription.

    I am happy with hostwinds - it is what all web hosting providers are supposed to be:
    - cool network and server uptime,
    - Amazing speed connectivity (pages load super fast),
    - rapid professional tech help (they work even at night - this is great).

    Never buy your hosting depending upon the traffic you 'MAY' have. Buy it for what you have right now. You can always upgrade.

    Bluehost & Hostwinds is good for Wordpress however if you're have budget then you should try VPS hosting and install Wordpress on your own.

    Cheap and reliable Wordpress-friendly services are available from iFastNet.com and QHoster.com.
    Plans are full of useful resources with high uptime and their support is second to none.
