If you are new to buy WordPress Hosting or want to migrate to WordPress hosting, you should answer these questions before you move on?

- 3. What security level you want?
- 4. How much bandwidth your site needs?
- 5. What is your monthly or yearly budget?
- 6. How frequent you want customer care support?
- 7. What website speed do you want? I think you can answer these questions easily. If not, don't worry and continue reading, I will explain everything. After comparing many WordPress hosting plans, I found 4 best WordPress hosting companies - Siteground, HostGator, FlyWheel & WpEngine.
WordPress Hosting Comparison by Price, Monthly Visits, Storage & Bandwidth
I categorize these 4 hosting companies to three useful groups- Small Business, Medium Business & Large Business Group.
1. Small Business Group
If have visitors under 100,000 then you are under Small Business Group. If you are starting your new business then you should select “10,000 visits per month” at $3.95 per month charge, because it takes much time to increase traffic and whenever you want to upgrade the plan you can upgrade easily. Therefore small enterprises, freelancers and small companies should choose Siteground considering its budget and visitors count per month.
If you know you have 25000 or under 100,000 visits per month and you like to migrate then you should select from Hostgator, Wpengine and Flywheel.
|Plan Name||Startup||Starter Plan||Starter||Startup|
|Storage||10 GB||Unmetered||5 GB||10 GB|
|Bandwidth||-||-||50 GB||50 GB|
2. Medium Business Group
If you are having multi sites and you want to acquire traffic under 200,000 per month. You should see Table 2.0 below.
In the comparison of multi-site facilities & pricing, siteground wins. In comparison to visits per month, siteground loses but pricing is too good.
3. Large Business Group
If you are having multi sites and you want to acquire traffic under 200,000 per month. You should see Table 2.0 If you are a business owner or owner of a website which consumes traffic up to 500,000, you are in this group.
WordPress Hosting Companies Comparison by Up Time, Speed, Security, SSL Certification, Customer Care Support & Reputation
1. SiteGround Hosting
SiteGround has trusted by 2,000,000 domain owners. It provides the fastest customer care support. Siteground approximately process 1500+ tickets, 1000+ phones and 3000+ chats each day having 400 employees. Siteground is the largest hosting company having very competitive pricing with great features and support.
The major cons are the renewal rate. Almost all hosting companies give a discount to a new user and take full charges in renewals.
