    I'm using BuyShared currently for my personal websites and also have a non-production site (for testing) on GestionDBI and both have been rock solid till now.

    Agreed. Can also recommend drServer (@Radi), extraVM (@MikeA), and @HostEONS for good support

  • Yes all of the above are excellent choices. Please also consider Mzungu for all your hosting needs. Good luck with your budget.

    You mention up to $40 (@op) but with all of these excitingly you can get up and running for much less.

    What makes you want to choose NameCheap? Do you have your domain name(s) with them @CokoMleko?

    Yikes. I didn't read that. I just got finished dealing with lovely support at Namecheap. I need a drink now.

  • I find the domain menu of namecheap confusing to navigate, and it is not as clear as with other registrars in terms of adding SPF records, or DKIM, and the like. For example, adjusting simple DNS entries requires you to click the "Advanced DNS" tab... why? It isn't advanced, it's just the DNS records. And you have to click that anyway since the default view of your domain when you click "Manage" just offers you purchase options for email or "Premium DNS" (which costs 4.88 USD/year)! Ooo! And the only explanation about what the Premium DNS is is this: Enable PremiumDNS protection in order to switch your domain to our PremiumDNS platform. With our PremiumDNS platform, you get 100% DNS uptime and DDoS protection at the DNS level. I have a bunch of domains with namecheap, and only have them there because of good sale prices, but I much prefer porkbun.com or namesilo.com or even name.com.

    I can't say anything about how this carries over into the hosting options, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are unexpected hoops to jump through if just the domain side of things is a little convoluted.

  • Hmm... the name cheap WP hosting works out in OP's price band. Maybe that was the starting point they used.

  • At that price i think you can get a kvm or openvz with free DA. Or use vestacp/hestia. Learn wp cache or use wp static. Then later mysql optimization. With kvm you wont bump into some restrictions as some shared hosting has some limits, sometimes in php values and mysql limits. But yeah you can start with any of the shared host mentioned above if you totally dont have idea about hosting. If you plan on buying themes and plugins then self hosted can be more expensive.

    And learn first how to secure wp. That is if you are going to use wp.

  • Since you didn't mention what kind of CMS you intend to use,

    I recently started playing with forestry.io with GitHub and Netlify (using Hugo) and I am really liking it. If you have some time to play around, this should also be quite fun (and free).

  • Why not in your signature?

  • I suggest you to use a hosting with cPanel because if you do not like the service you can create a full cPanel backup and move to another hosting company. It's the most easy way for migration off all your information (emails, db and site files etc.)

  • Namecheap is pretty good with their hosting. Expensive, but good. In all honesty, you can get cheaper hosting elsewhere with the same performance.

    Take a look at TurnkeyInternet. They are not cheap, but they are within your budget and I've been using their cPanel hosting as well as dedicated server since 2013: https://turnkeyinternet.net/linux-cpanel-web-hosting/

    Don't be so serious. It's just a forum. No one cares what you think anyway.

  • MechanicWebMechanicWeb Member, Provider

    $30-40 is a reasonable budget to get a decent hosting. Any decent provider should be good to go for hosting blogs.

    However, if you need assistance with your blog, make sure to check with your preferred provider whether they would provide such support or not. Not everyone provides support for websites and third party applications.

    Namecheap is expensive??? Really I think they have cheapest hosting on internet, besides hostinger ( but they have birthday promotion)

    Yes, CPanel and 99% uptime would be awesome for my price range!!!

  • Have you decided what features would you like to have for your page? It's not always the name or the price, to be exact, you have to see what's in the package and in my personal opinion if you are new, you want to have 24/7 support

    SLA, resource limits, customer service... their importance unfortunately comes with experience.
    In majority of the cases, decision is based almost always about the price. More so on LET. Those seeking "free" advice also do not often spend the time in research : there are at least two offers for free hosting in the past month on LET.

    Yes, but when you are looking to host a blog, you normally look into more then 1 year... thats where they get you; cause you'll usually think, "moving hosts is too troublesome. Might as well pay the extra!"

    Best to get either cheaper hosts or lifetime voucher codes.

    Don't be so serious. It's just a forum. No one cares what you think anyway.

  • suggest u to go with buyvm 1Gb plan 3.5$*12=42$ benefit is that u had a vps and have enough resources to boost ur website if its hit a better ranking however DirectAdmin is free,softaculousis free and blesta too @fransisco will take care of ur vps too in free :tired_face:

  • if ur noob then dm me i will setup for u in free just setup only

    True, but different people, different opinions, maybe others will answer and recommend their options. If only the price matters and not the best fit suggestion, you can definitely find the cheapest providers on google.

    Woah, but it's so big marketing trick, it's just worth it to have hosting for 1 year, and after that it's better to switch, 100$/yr for hosting is ridiculous, and it don't even have 99% uptime,

    Nowadays, on the internet you have so much resource, so you can easily find vouchers for hostings, and in my opinion, you can estimate if you can profit from your blog in the first year, so you don't need to spend any extra money
