Where to host your blog?

“Jerry, Who Has The Best Hosting For My WordPress Site?” One of the most popular questions I receive from WordPress users is which hosting option is best; my answer to this question is consistently (and always will be), “It depends.”

As with anything in life, there is no one size fits all solution – every blog is different and each organization has its own unique sets of needs and preferences. Not to go to apple and oranges references, but it’s like a fruit basket – if you ask which one is best, you’re likely to get weird looks (one, because you’re asking about the quality of fruit baskets and, two, because it’s so largely based on opinion and need).

That said, however, here are some common hosting recommendations I give to bloggers.
