Whatever you do, don't go with 1&1. One of the worst providers out there. @Gitgitau - Take a look at VoxVM as well, we have a lifetime 50% off discount going on.

I use NameCheap because thats where I host my domains. Theyre one of the most recommended registrars and their customer service is great too. I would only go with a reputable company if I were you. Not a third-party reseller that'll screw you over.

I have been in the webmaster business for 25 years. I have literally used 100s of servers and hosting companies during that time -- Used to be, companies like Hostgator, Arvixe, BlueHost -- All were good -- But then they were bought out by a company called EIG -- EIG is like the King Midas of Toilets - Everything they touch turns to shit.... Use a company that IS NOT a subsidiary of EIG is my best advice.

The following is a list of the host companies acquired by EIG over the years -- I would stay away from all of these if I were you. I am saying this from experience with several of them. My recommendation is at the bottom of the list.

I run 40+ websites on GreenGeeks. In my opinion, they are the fastest and most courteous group I have found -- Here is a link with my referral. But, you can always just search for them!

Good luck! Hope that helps.

@Gitgitau are you host WP site? Kinsta, WP Engine, and Site Ground are the top tier. $5/m VPS upcloud, vultr or Digitalocean also good enough

Wherever my imagination takes me
Indeed as @ekey64 wrote, Endurance International Group (EIG), have an incredible number of other hosting services under various names. Many 'brands' that were good as independent companies have gone downhill after being purchased by EIG. Avoid them like the plague!

When asking for suggestions on Hosting Services, you'll always get many answers, so it will still be difficult to choose. But I'll chime in: I like GreenGeeks and if cost is a concern you could try DreamHost.

I used to like SiteGround, but unfortunately they have not only become expensive, but their service is not on the same level anymore either.

Only consider VPS hosting providers when you're prepared to invest some time in the technical stuff.

You always have a 50% discount going on :)
That being said, I am using this service, and I am very happy.

Update: I would NOT recommend this company if you do not know how to fix everything yourself.
My site is hacked at the moment, and after 24 hours I have been informed by VoxVM that they "do not offer support on applications" (meaning WordPress) so my site is useless as I cannot log in or anything) until I can pay someone to fix it.
However, VoxVM has hidden my databases in PHPMyAdmin (accident i think?) and everything so no one is capable to see what's going on, and fix it.. Had already hired a man to fix it and run malware check and so on, but they can't see or access anything, and again.. Voxvm not helping!

One of the first rules I learned long ago: never ever host your website with the same company where you've registered your domain, always keep that separate. That holds true, until today.
do you mind sharing why you came up with that rule?

If your logic is 'because if your domain registrar goes offline, then your web hosting will also go offline', then that's a very outdated way of thinking and simply incorrect.
