My favourite and the best in my opinion hosting provider is SiteGround. I have both my websites hosted on their server and I can recommend you that company. The only 3 issues I have met since June 2016 were solved during 15 minutes.
Some of the features of a shared hosting with SiteGround are listed below:
- 10-30 GB web space
- unlimited number of websites
- unmetered data transfer
- free domain name
- Staging – feature that allows you to create a copy of your live website on a separate environment, which makes changing the content of your website safer and easier
- 5 server locations: Chicago, London, Amsterdam, Singapore, Milan
- SSD storage
- Cloudflare CDN – feature that makes your website load faster thanks to more than 100 data centers all around the world; it also protects your site against attacks such as XSS and DDoS
- SuperCacher – another feature created to shorten loading time by caching the content of your website
- daily backups
- protection against viruses and malware
- isolation of an environment
- SSL certificates (free and paid)
- dedicated IP address
- private DNS
- privacy protection
- 99.99% uptime
- technical support 24/7/365
SiteGround offers 30-day money-back guarantee, which means you can resign from their services during 30 days if you are dissatisfied with their hosting.
There are a few another companies which offer high-quality services:
- Bluehost – The Best Web Hosting | Fast Professional Website Hosting Services
- InMotion Hosting – Web Hosting, VPS Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, Reseller Hosting
- A2 Hosting
- Web Hosting Hub – Best Website Hosting Services

1&1 | Hosting, Domain Registration, Website Services offers the cheapest and high-quality services. The cheapest hosting package starts at $0.99 per month.
If you need a hosting to create a WordPress site, you can visit also this link: WordPress Hosting, Perfected. WP Engine. The monthly fee is a little higher than anywhere, but the quality of service is also really high.
All of these companies offer money-back guarantee – 30-90-days. DreamHost offers 97-days money-back guarantee.
Anyway, I would like to recommend you SiteGround – Quality-Crafted Hosting Services.
* Update (5th May 2017): Changes made by SiteGround during the last few months:
- Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates are installed automatically on every new domain without extra charges.
- SiteGround updated default version of PHP (5.6) to PHP 7 and released a feature which allows to check the site’s compatibility with PHP 7.
- New anti-malware system – previously used HackAlert was replaced by SG Site Scanner by Sucuri.
- WAF (Web Application Firewall) by Cloudflare – one of the most effective solutions protecting against hack attempts as well as attacks such as XSS, SQL Injection etc.
- Significantly improved WordPress AutoUpdater.
- SiteGround implemented a new, very effective feature based on artificial intelligence, which prevents brute-force attacks on websites of SiteGround’s customers.
