    Host for Wordpress

    I have tried several hosting companies for my Wordpress sites. Some have good service, but not good technology & v.v. Please recommend a company that has both. For service and technology, I need:
    • to be able to contact them by phone
    • to be able to preview a site before launch without having to adjust my hosts file
    • and I need one-click installations and updates.

    The hosting companies I have tried include hostgo.com, jagflyhosting.com, and asmallorange.com. I'm considering networksolutions.com.

    I have read a lot negative reviews of them. Have no personal experience but bad feedbacks are more than positive ones.
    I think marble host company is good host for Wordpress.
    And they have active support with phone support.

    Any web host with cPanel and a auto installer like Softaclous or Fantastico should be able to meet these qualifications. The big hosts tend to stuff as many accounts as possible per server which leads to horrible speeds. That is something to keep in mind.

    Yes, he is using Wordpress as his CMS. It is PHP so any shared hosting plan that runs PHP (Linux based) will work fine.

    Definitely go with HawkHost.com! They fulfill all your requirements and I host all my sites with them.

    It really doesn't matter which shared host you choose... the big ones are hostgator, and dreamhost. One thing you need to do is optimize your wordpress blog with a cache plugin such as w3 total cache. Decreases server load and increases page load times substantially.

    I would go with bluehost, easy to use and the prices are competitive, they offer the most up to date options and they seem to have enough bandwidth.

    I would suggest either Hawkhost or Dhruva hosting. I use Dhruva because it's cheap and reliable. I only had one issue and I sent in a support ticket and they fixed the problem in no time.
