Where to Host Your Blog?

“Jerry, who has the best web host for my blog?”

One of the most popular questions I receive from bloggers is which hosting option is best; my answer to this question is always, “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 usual names that I recommend to my fellow bloggers.
