Best Web Hosting Companies

You have an idea for your website, put the time and effort into building it out, and now need a home for your site so you can share it with the world.

A good web hosting solution can make the difference between a slick, easy to access, easy to use website that people want to return to and a website that is limited in features, slow, and prone to outages. And if your hard work pays off and hoards of people try accessing your site, a good web hosting plan will be the difference between treating your visitors to the experience they are expecting and having them get discouraged because of long load times and server errors.

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 Ten

1 GoDaddy GoDaddy GoDaddy 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.

One of the best web hosting company but little bit costly!

2 HostGator HostGator HostGator 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.

Hostgator is one of the best web hosting companies I think that they have the best offers on the web certainly for new web masters and people whom begin in the web - sao

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.

7 FatCow FatCow

FatCow is the only hosting provider I've ever used, and I've used them for almost 3 years. My environmentalist wife was attracted to their claim that they power their offices and data centers with 100% wind energy.

Pros:
+ cheap if you pay for several years in advance
+ Excellent customer support
+ Fairly reliable
+ Fairly good knowledge base and tutorials

Cons:
- Their shared hosting seems slow
- Their control panel and the various plugins seem clunky, like they don't all fit together seamlessly
- Unless you go with something like WordPress, their features are rather bare-bones and you must pay extra for what seems to me ought to be standard features like photo galleries
- If you don't pay for several years in advance, you will probably get sticker shock when it comes time to renew. I paid $24 for 1 year on a website with a special offer, but when I got the bill to renew, it was $78!

Bottom line: I recommend FatCow, but compare the ...more

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.

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

9 WordPress

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.

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.

A great blog site for writers like me, but I wish there are more other designs / templates, since the rest are only available to paid / premium members...

The web hosting company that helped create UglyShips.com, my favorite website of all time!

10 Wix

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

I use this site to create my business page and also use it to mess about, as you can make free sites. It is easy to use and cheap enough. I've used so many sites and wix is by far the best. You can make blogs, hotel pages, music pages, restaurant pages and even online stor es! d efinitely should check it out if your looking to make a site!

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.

It free which you can create website! - David39

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.

I have good experience working with Riaenjolie. They provide good customer support.

Yes its was a great experience working with riaenjolie.

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.

13 DigitalOcean

Best for developers. Especially their hourly fee and option to resize server memory and space withing 2-5 minutes is amazing. Free 50$ credits for students too!

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.

15 iPage

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.

17 Network Solutions

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.

18 Weebly

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.

Free and you can use jQuery with no restrictions. Still, you get a better site URL than WIX.

the first major hosting company to implement clustering technology across all hosting accounts

20 IX 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...

24 Namecheap

Why so low on the list? Good Price for a good service! They should really get their name out there more

Amazing service for a low price. This one should be way higher.

25 Cloud Shards

They've been great. Fast, cheap and reliable -- a combo of three from which you usually only get to pick two.

Certainly recommended.

Continuous support provided. Surprised they can offer so much support for the price. I had asked many many questions about cPanel reseller and their support was very dedicated.

Great support and server uptime! The connectivity really shows when it comes to loading times

Low latency and also very helpful staff.

Yellow according to Web of Trust. Spammed EVERYWHERE. Probably crappy too. - TheRobertsFamily3

29 1&1 Internet, Inc

They are great! I have no complaints. The pricing is the best in the industry. Reliability is second-to-none. Customer service is great. Tech support is marginal, but usually not required. I am a web designer and I charge more if I am forced to use any other web-hosting service. If you correctly add 1 & 1, then this selection is a no-brainer.

I have been using 1&1 for more than 5 years. The service is great, at anytime of day. They have many options and the price is more than fair. I have had set up as many as 3 different web pages through them. I have two at this time one for the last 6 years.

Best bang for the buck - they give you a ton of access, features, and reliability that no one else can touch for the price. I have tried Blue Host, IX Web Hosting, Go Daddy, Network Solutions, and Lunar Pages, and I still think 1&1 is the best.

You can't test them all, but the overall test is time.
I've been with them over 15 years - excellent price, support and reliability.
Technically, they're on the top!

I've been using MyIdealHost.com for about a year now to host several sites including one reseller account for a new venture, and I must say I have been very impressed by your service and support. The server has had very stable uptime, the features included in the hosting accounts are very powerful considering the cost, but most impressive has been your support. In particular, the response time for support requests has been very quick, especially considering that most companies don't even respond to support requests in the same day any more.

I'm new in site building, but with their easy in use panel I could build a website myself without any help of a web-developer ) that saved me a lot

Excellent support! Their response time is impressing, my issue was resolved within 20 mins
