Choosing a host can be overwhelming. There are so many options, and being stuck with a bad host is a real pain.
I have used a multitude of hosts in the past, such as GoDaddy, HostGator, Bluehost, Liquid Web, WPX Hosting, and local German hosting providers for my German language websites.
After these personal experiences and additional long hours of research and comparing, I recommend the following:
The Cost-Effective, “Good-Enough” Option for Beginners
If you are just getting started and you are short on cash, a good-enough and cheap solution is Bluehost. Bluehost is a huge and very popular hosting company, which has the advantage that you can find a bazillion guides for anything Bluehost online. The interface is also very beginner-friendly and easy to use.
The disadvantage is that the website speed on their shared hosting plans (=the cheap hosting plans where you share computing resources with many other clients) can sometimes get slow. I have used Bluehost in the past, but I am using another solution (which I will get to below) for this site now because I wanted more speed.
The Premium Option
I got that speed with WPX. WPX is what this website uses and is a very fast but also more expensive solution.
In addition to having fast servers, WPX uses a special technology called VPN to make sure that your website loads quickly from every country all over the globe.
If you’re willing to spend a little bit more, WPX is the host I would recommend.
