Make sure your website get what it deserves, a hosting solution that won't stand in the way of success. Listed below are the best web hosting companies based on price, reliability, features, and customer service. These guys will make sure you get your money’s worth whether you need a basic personal webhosting package or something more robust like a dedicated server for your business.

The Top TenXW

1GoDaddyGoDaddy is a publicly traded Internet domain registrar and web hosting company. As of January 2016, GoDaddy was said to have had more than 61 million domain names under management, making it the world's largest ICANN-accredited registrar.

I purchased a 12 month hosting plan with GoDaddy at a discounted rate. When the 12 months was up, I continued with the plan on a monthly basis knowing that it would cost me a little more each month. Even though I had had zero problems with the service, I wasn't ready to commit to another 12 month purchase since I was considering upgrading my plan. A GoDaddy customer service agent called me to make sure I understood that the monthly charges would no longer be at the discounted rate. I told him I was aware and explained why I was sticking with paying every month. Instead of trying to sell me on a longer term package, the agent asked if I wanted him to see if he could get me a discount. Naturally I was all for it. Next thing I knew, I was saving $30 on something I was already planning to purchase and I didn't have to commit to anything new. I have never dealt with another company that has contacted me without my requesting it and given me a discount without any prompting. Needless to ...more

I now have over a dozen sites hosted with GoDaddy using Linux hosting plans, Windows hosting planes, shared hosting and a virtual private server. In the five years I have been using GoDaddy services I have had zero complaints. Their account management tools are great and getting better all the time, it is incredibly easy to create blogs and forums even if you don't know the first thing about HTML, and to top it all off their prices are great. I've referred multiple people to GoDaddy and haven't heard a single complaint.

Something to be said for being the biggest. I think the phrase "economy of scale" comes to mind.

GoDaddy has excellent pricing, plans, and performance. The only knock on them is that they have corporate-style policies which is only a problem if you are playing dirty or spamming people.

It's very good hosting provider... - kalpesh1982

Amazing support as well as extremely reasonable pricing. In the 4 years I have been with Bluehost, I have only ever experienced downtimes once. They were very professional about it. I would highly recommend Bluehost to anyone looking for a reliable hosting provider at an amazing price.

This company provides a really good service. Customers get all they need and personally find all the information to upload pages!

This is the best service I have used. It simple and easy to use. It's worth the price for the services and peace of mind.

3HostGatorHostGator is a Houston-based provider of shared, reseller, virtual private server, and dedicated web hosting with an additional presence in Austin, Texas.

I cannot understand why HostGator is not at the top of this list. Good stable service and more then just the normal package, you get more then what you expect! Even with the money that I pay for the account it seems as if it is all free... No other company can do better then what they are able to do!

Hostgator should definitely be at the top of the list! I've been using them for years and have nothing but nice things to say about them. Great uptime, online chat for support which is knowledgeable, and many options.

The support Hostgator offers should automatically put them leaps and bounds above everyone else. But considering that GoDaddy is number one on this list, it's easy to see the type of people voting here... Morons! Yes, I said it, if you think that GoDaddy is a better web host that Hostgator, you my friend are a complete MORON.

They are much better then any other.. ! - AbhieInsa

7FatCow

I'm a novice when it comes to website hosting. I tried one of the Big Guys first, and it was a nightmare -- nobody there seemed to know anything. I finally turned to FatCow customer support to see if they could answer my questions. Even though I wasn't a FatCow customer yet, they helped me get up and running. After the third major glitch with the Big Guys (they set my domain pointers wrong and "lost" my website for a couple of weeks), I threw in the towel and switched to FatCow, and I've been very glad I did. Their customer support is great, very knowledgeable, courteous, and prompt. The service is very reliable -- my site is always up -- and their prices competitive. love FatCow.

A novice when it comes to websites and all that goes with them I was given a few companies to go with. I tried Fat Cow and one other, pretty quickly I transferred 'the other' to Fat Cow because the interface was so simple to understand and just get on with building your website and getting it out there. As a novice I am not without questions to learn how to do things and the Live Chat support service has really helped me out in solving my questions... However silly they probably seem to the competent guys at the other end of the ether. I now have a few sites running through Fat Cow and have recommended them to friends to use. Never had any down time and will continue to use them for the foreseeable.

I've been using FatCow for a few years now, and would definitely recommend them for anyone who wants great customer service and trouble free hosting. I am self taught, and no expert. Two other hosting companies I had tried before let me down badly when support was needed for technical stuff I wanted explained. No problems like this with FatCow. On the couple of occasions that my site has been down, they have responded straight away, and sorted it out. I won't be looking elsewhere for hosting.

FatCow is easy to use and the support is great I give it a try you will love it.

IPower is cool, I'll say that. Apple has a lot of genius stuff that everyone uses, buys, downloads, etc. - Kagaminetwins101

Right now I am at Ipower. I am not having any issues with them. I will check for another year So that I can update whether it deserves to be in this list or not.

I've been with iPower since 2006 and have been very happy with their service, particularly in recent years since it has become more secure.

9Wix

Webs does not look professional AT ALL.

But with Wix, you can make an ACTUAL website for FREE! Did I mention it's WAY better than Webs?

As a matter of fact, the only truly good thing about Webs is that you can have multiple free sites! You can do that here too! - TheRobertsFamily3

Wix is fairly easy to work with. Best one I've found for free in terms of professional looks. Wix should be in the Top 10.

Very easy to use and great tools. Also great for beginners.

Easy to use. Best one of the top ten list

10WordPress

WordPress has been an excellent provider for more than a year. The staff is very helpful when I need support. I recommend it with a clear conscience.

It's a sad day when both Wix and Webs are ranked higher than WordPress. This should be #1, in my opinion. - loganruckmanman

This website is a good blog site, but I don't like that the other great themes costs a lot of dollars. I wish it was all free.

I got a Dolphin based website from Riaenjolie and the website was delivered as per expectations and experience was fantastic.

I am happy and satisfied with the website and looking forward to a new website with them soon.

I would recommend this company to all.

Yes its was a great experience working with riaenjolie.

Simply the best web hosting company. Customer support is the best.

I got an Ecommerce website done from them and it's just too good. These guys know their job quite well.
I would recommend this to everyone who has a small business but wishes to do big.

Best customer service. Hands down. No contest.

I spent years doing my hosting with a different (bigger) company and not only did I have down time, but billing issues, technical problems, horrible customer service and none of their phone numbers were toll free. Any time I needed help with anything I had to pay to be on hold.

And then I found iPage. That was three years ago. Now I host all three of my sites on iPage and I recommend them to all my friends and clients (I'm a freelance designer). Everyone I've talked to on the phone is nice, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. As a freelancer I've had to deal with my client's choices for hosting companies, iPage is the best out there.

IPage surpasses all with the combination of the easiest user-interface, a wide availability of web development tools, and easy-to-incorporate free blogging software. The standout, though, is the excellent instant-chat expert technical customer service. At their price, it is the best bargain out there! - Brellie

I have used iPage for many years and would never switch to anyone else again! Their Customer Service is second to none. They helped me set everything up and also helped me when I messed up on a few of my webpages and email accounts with no questions asked. I am very happy with their service and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Before we have changed to iPage we had nothing but problems with our hosts. Now that we use iPage as our host we are very happy, it it easy to use and has the best customer service I've experienced with hosting companies.

The best web host I've ever seen. It enables users to have awesome templates and excellent designs. It's been the host of several famous websites. Its a brand. That's it.

16DigitalOcean

The best for developers for sure! I'm with them for just 4 months, but it's been the best experience ever!

Please be aware they provide VPS hosting not conventional shared hosting. Otherwise, they are truly the best VPS provider that I've come across, and am sticking with them.

17Weebly

Weebly is awesome! Easy to use, drag and drop. Cheap- as in FREE unless you want fancy stats stuff then it's a few bucks a month. Loads super FAST! I had Network solutions before. Paid out the ass for it and it was slow as molasses and hard to update.

I really like Weebly because it is really easy to edit. All you have to do is drag stuff! So simple!

I love it. It is very easy to customize, and is absolutely free.

How is this so low! Its free, and unlike Webs you can make a lot more pages without spending $$$$

19IX Web Hosting

Have been involved with computers and building websites for several decades. I've tried and used a number of the sites listed here and have been using IX Web Hosting for the last several years. They not only offer a variety of platforms but also have outstanding customer support and pricing! They've been far superior in all aspects to all previous hosting sites I've used in the past. I have several sites running there now and recommend them to any and all who ask where they should go to start up a site! Simply the best!

My site crashed in the middle of the night and I do most of my business overseas, thought I was out thousands, Called IX and their people helped me get it back and running in less then an hour.

I've been a member of this web hosting company for about 7 years and never been down once. Great customer service and they are fast. I don't think they ever sleep. These folks have my vote.

I've been with IX Web Hosting for more than six years.. the staff is really there to help... good service...
