    I am starting a new wordpress site this week. It is going to be a very simple website with regular content update. I will probably use "NEWSPAPER" theme.

    Can anyone suggest me which hosting service and which plan to choose ? I am targeting global traffic as my site is not for any particular region.

    Depends on your budget.

    There's very affordable shared hosting, think $5 a month or cheaper.

    Stay away from EIG group though.

    I can spend around $10-15 per month. By the way, what is EIG group?

    I currently use 5. Google, Amazon, Immotion, Bluehost and Namecheap. I renewed all of them except for Amazon and Google. I may drop Namecheap next renewal.

    Huge company that bought a bunch of other hosting companies, you can find full explanation here:

    Personally I would recommend WPXHosting or siteground if you are looking for fully optimized wordpress hosting, it comes with a hefty price tag though.

    Oh so cool to see WPX mentioned here! I've been with them for a couple months and have been very happy!

    Although yea a bit more expensive than what OP was hoping for.

    I've been with namecheap for almost a year and have not had any issues, and hosting is like $2.88 a month or something and not the slowest at least. Not sure how it would be with a lot of traffic though.

    Hello,
    wpxhosting and siteground seem to have good prices.
