    I have several blogs as well and I am using CloudWays ( Digital Ocean plan). The sites are so fast and their caching system is amazing. I would go for them.

    How many visitors do you get per month on average btw? so I can tell you from my experience which plan suits you if you want.

    Fastcomet, but no longer as awesome as they were (Still better by far compared to others). They are just charging higher actually, the support and service remained the same quality

    Digital Ocean, $5/month VPS. There's some trial credit too, forget the details but it meant I didn't have to pay for a while.

    It's enough to run quite a few low-traffic Wordpress sites.

    There are tons and thousands articles on this particular question where everyone promotes there associated web hosting service. Comparing features and price is good.

    But, one should work out ones own requirement of what type of resources are needed and within what budget Answering to this question can help you immensely for selecting best possible option based on your needs.

    Now, your blogs are hosted on bluehost and you see some posts or people that does not like bluehost. This does not conclude that it is not a better service (Bluehost is working fine with your blog right?)

    There are infinite numbers of web hosting services, are you going to compare them all?are they all bad? Always a better idea to select the service based on your business needs.

    Couldn't agree more!

    With a cheap droplet, you can put lot's of blogs...

    I have a simple script where I install nginx, wordpress, mariadb, automatic letsencrypt for ssl, etc in less then a minute with docker and docker-machine... And you don't even need to create droplets on your own...

    I basically anyone can create this type of script with a little bit of effort!

    Digital ocean is the place to go!! ;)

    I vouch for Siteground. Not only for the price, but they literally have 24/7 chat support. So while I'm traveling around the world, I can go to their support page and just request to chat with a rep who often helps me solve my issue in just a few minutes.

    They are good, but they have some limitations, like SiteGround.

    I used SiteGround for around 2 years, and they are the best hosting ever and the best support that any hosting company would dream to have. However, their shared hosting isn't so good when the sites have a few thousands of visitors a month ( depending on the site).

    Also, Cloud Hosting is a bit overpriced. But if the site is new and without a lot of traffic, SiteGroudn doesn't have any competitor then IMO.

    I don't know if it's Godaddy VPS or what, but my wordpress sites are extremely slow on Godaddy. Does anyone else have this problem? Looking for an alternative atm.

    GoDaddy hosting is slow, I used them before and I won't really use them again. I used plenty of hosting companies for several WordPress sites since years.

    If you can give me more details such as monthly visitors or if you want through a PM I could help you choose the best hosting. I went through this hustle and finally I have found a good hosting.
