Reliable and good wordpress hosting is a necessity for professional bloggers. If you are setting up your first self hosted blog with paid hosting or then just searching for more information on setting up a blog – You will need a domain name + a good hosting company as a minimum. [Updated March 2016]
Google will give you both good reviews and bad reviews for hosting , but you yourself need to know what you actually need to start a blog – Like Do you need email forwarding, do you need a Free domain name, are you looking for a CMS website.
A newbie blogger can make do with good shared hosting whihc is quite cheap to start with and more popular blogs with high traffic possibly need a dedicated hosting or VPS service.
Unfortunately, If you search for Word press Hosting on Google – you will pretty much get bad reviews on each and every webhost out there, that is providing a wordpress hosting service. It is difficult to get a 100% genuine review that proves that a particular web-host ticks all the boxes.
99.9 % Uptime for wordpress hosting Guaranteed, Really!
I have now been in the blogging game for many years and gone through quite a few hosting providers. I still currently use Bluehost , Dreamhost, Hostmonster and now go daddy and they have done well, but with many ups and downs over time.
To my good or bad luck I just signed up for go daddy wordpress hosting and a week later happened to come across heaps of reviews saying it is very bad host for wordpress hosting, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.[update – I am still using godaddy now 11/07/2016 and it is still a good choice for beginner niche websites]

Broken promises on wordpress hosting
Bluehost has had its ups and downs over the years, but currently I am quite pleased with my bluehost account.
For that part I have also had issues with Dreamhost and Hostgator but not in the last couple of years- So that is going good, All of the top hosting services have now upped their game and is providing good hosting service and customer support.
I have been with each of these hosts now for almost 7+ years now.
In the meantime if you are looking for a “wordpress host” that is comparatively reliable than the rest its worth going with Dreamhost, they have been much more reliable than the other hosts I have currently.
Let me know if you have been hosting with hostgator as I am curious to get some feedback before i get my next hosting provider.
