We use cloud hosting for Leadformly – a ‘software as a service’ (SaaS) tool we created to make it easy to build lead generation forms. We chose cloud hosting for Leadformly because on some days we could have hundreds of users logging in and building complex forms, while on other days it could be thousands. Cloud hosting means that we don’t need to worry about the tool slowing down during peak usage times. I cant believe you missed MDDhosting yet included the notoriously slow and poorly supported Bluehost. MDD Hosting offer amazing support, fast servers and a good range of hosting options at reasonable prices. I’m not affiliated to them in any way, just wanted to balance things a little.
If you’re not sure which way you want to go, it’s worth starting a blog at and then later upgrading to a self-hosted blog while still using WordPress’s software. The good news is that once you find a host, they can usually help you install WordPress on your site, and then you can enjoy the easy-to-use software with full control over your site. But if you are looking at providers who can help you on all your domain management and hosting in one place, Go Daddy will be a good choice as they simply enjoy the benefit of scale. But in return, you will lose out on live chat customer service tools, and the industry most ubiquitous cPanel would not be available to you.
As I mentioned above, Hostgator is not a bad hosting company and I have been using them from long and still using it for few of my sites, even after it’s sold to EIG Though, there are times, when your hosting configuration can completely take down your site and search engine ranking, so you should always be ready with some alternatives Also, make sure you take a complete daily backup of your site (Wp-content and database file).
