    Hi

    I am Kian Walsh

    There are so many wordpress hosting websites out there and many seem to offer very similar packages and at very similar prices. I've been wondering,how do people actually define the term. I can't define it and can't choose the best one.

    so please give me your opinions and suggestions that should be fulfill my wish.

    Thanks
    Kian Walsh

    For WordPress choose host that has software like Fantastico/SimpleScripts/QuickInstall for 1 click install. HostGator is good.

    One thing i'd look into is what type of content they allow.
    If you're blackhat some hosts such as godaddy will not allow your site.
    ( Copyrighted stuff, fake content, warez etc )

    well you cant really see that a web hosting would be fit to host wordpress site. That depends on experience. If you can do a reverse ip of one of the hosted site and can see what other sites are on it and can the check which are wordpress then you can get an idea if your wordpress site will function properly. I know a hosting service which provide support and that is bullten.com

    For your purposes any host with a decent reputation that offers simple WordPress installation should be good enough. Hostgator, Hostwinds, etc. all work and are decently reliable and have good support.

    Good luck. I just started hosting e-commerce sites using wordpress as content manager as well. Don't forget to check out the members download section for free themes, but remember paid themes also provide support. Themes run for about 50$, and are usually really easy to set up.

    Stablehost - comes with Fantastico, softaculous. Darn cheap than hostgator but I've not used hostgator, just stablehost. Give it a try.

    Start with Hostgator's first month' 1 penny baby plan hosting package. That way you can host unlimited domains. When you outgrow move to vps with reputable hosting company. Can't recommend you Hostgators' vps, because I never tried their vps. But from my own experience can tell you, don't take on Hostgator's reseller account. Wordpress on that account was very unreliable. Posts were just desappearing on updating the page while editing. May be I'm wrong, but I think they outsource reseller hosting to other company.

    Always go for hosting with CPanel or Softaculous to install your Wordpress sites easy and quickly. There's also other benefits having CPanel installed.

    Hostgator should be the best. 24/7 live chat support. 1 penny ONLY for first month. If you dun like it that just cancel it after 1 month :D

    Hostgator is the best for wordpress, other hosting providers I try lag when u install many plugins including Godaddy that does truly suck by the way.

    Just agreeing with the spirit of many people's posts here , YES , Hostagator is the best for your hosting needs.
