In this in-depth WordPress Hosting Guide for 2019 I’ve fully tested 10 different hosting setups to find out which one is the best WordPress hosting. I’ve been testing with a fully developed Woocommerce enabled website to really put the servers through their paces. To enable you to make an informed decision I also tested out two VPS servers and the managed WordPress solution from WP Engine.

JP in Fuerteventura says:

Very timely Alex as I am fed up with my current hosting ( I will use your affiliate link when I change.

Lee Henderson says:

How strange that Siteground should come out on top. A few months ago in the chat when hosting was being discussed I said that I was using Siteground and found them really good and would recommend them you were very dismissive of them and continued to tell those looking for hosting to use Hostgator because they were the best hosts out there.

Chloe Lowther says:

hi, i am creating a website for a new shop (womans clothing boutique) using one of your older vidoes “how to make an ecommerce website using wordpress & woocommerce” i was wondering is the hosting you advise on this video (tsohosting) still a good host to use as the video is very old? any help would be greatly appreciated.

Screamingblue1 says:

Thanks for a great review. Very informative and useful going forward. I had noticed from your more recent WP videos that you no longer mention TSOHost and in this video they don’t even get a review. I signed up with them in 2015 after reviewing one of your site building video’s, although I have been getting a little frustrated with their speed and reliability issues lately, so wondered if you’d had the same?

Matt Morris says:

Been using Siteground for a while and will completely attest to these reviews. Siteground offer excellent speed and customer support. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Best hosting by far I think.

Emily J says:

Thank you so much for doing a thorough comparison! And the affiliate discounts are much appreciated. I love your videos and am so grateful for all the info. 🙂

Better Life Reviews says:

I recently moved from blue host to site ground. I’m still having tons of speed problems, but I don’t think they are related to the host, and my speeds definitely increased after making the switch. The customer support and interface has also been really good, and I like the cloud flare integration and other speed tools. Great video. Thanks for confirming what I thought I already knew.

Cloudways is best

Siteground support good but beware of renewal prices and cost of SSL certificates on renewal. Have transferred to WPX hosting who also have excellent customer services and free SSL and domain privacy for free for time you are with them.
