Choosing a good host is an important part of setting up your WordPress site. Not all hosts are created equal! You usually get what you pay for. If you plan to use a host not listed here, please contact us before you sign up with them to see if they are a hosting provider we can recommend, as we do not work with some hosts due to poor service.
Below are a few reputable hosts. This is not an exhaustive list, so feel free to do your own research as you make your hosting choice. This information is current as of November 2013. Please check with each host to see if this information is still accurate. The links below are affiliate links, and Erin Ulrich will receive a commission on any purchases made.
