One of the first things you’ll need when you get started on your website and go the WordPress route, will be to find a hosting provider. Partnering with a hosting provider will allow your website to actually be live on the internet. Website platforms like Squarespace, Webflow, Showit, Wix & Shopify, don’t actually require a hosting plan since it’s already including within the price of their platforms plan. However, if you are planning on using WordPress, than you need a hosting provider, here is a list of my top 3 best hosting providers for your WordPress website!

Bluehost is my personal favorite and has been my hosting provider for the past 5 years. I use their shared hosting plan which allows me to host multiple sites at once. Their support team has also always been top notch and anytime I’ve had an issue, they’ve provided assistance. In terms of pricing, it may be the most affordable hosting provider on the list, with plans starting at $2.95/month.
Flywheel is another great platform that’s built and created for fellow freelancers and agencies but also offers plans for small businesses and solo entrepreneurs. I’ve used Flywheel for a client site and what I loved about it was the ease of creating a staging site and transferring it over to a live site. It’s easy to use and set up and also offers great support. Their plans start at $15/month so it is a little pricier than Bluehost.
Siteground is one hosting provider that comes greatly recommended by fellow designers and people I know and trust. It’s powered by Google Cloud and has hosted over 2 million sites. Similarly to Flywheel, they offer more tools for agencies and freelancers to make it easier to work with clients. For regular, every day users, the support is highly rated and pricing plans at $5.95/month.
There are a few other hosting options but these are my top 3 best hosting providers for your wordpress website, at least in my eyes. As mentioned above, you won’t need a hosting plan if you use a different website platform such as Squarespace & Shopify but for WordPress, you will definitely need to partner with one. I always recommend doing your own research and determinging which provider will work best for you!
