12 Aug The Best WordPress Host! (Hint: It's Not BlueHost…)
A good piece of advise if you are thinking of #bluehost. I started hosting with them in may 2013. Just after a couple of months, my websites were down for more than 3 days. The only way to communicate with them was through Facebook. It may happen with any server, but their inability to communicate with the clients but only through Facebook is really sad. I started getting problems with my emails slowly. The emails from different domains/ different email accounts will stay in the outbox for hours before leaving. I sent them emails about it. They will reply back to me but the thread will be missing. They will keep asking silly question in their reply after a day or two. I never had any email problem sorted. I moved 5 domains to new hosting. I just do not want any other to get into this nightmare; hence wasting my time and writing this. WHen you google for #bluehost Bad service, there are many Davids, and Sharma’s talking so nicely about #bluehost in their blogs aor Hosting review sites. Beware!

WordPress is not a website builder— it’s a content management system (or CMS). The difference is important. Website builders include hosting and tend to be easier to use. WordPress does not include hosting and has a steeper learning curve— but is much more flexible. You can read more about the differences here.
Because WordPress does not include hosting, finding a good WordPress host is really important. Unfortunately searching best WordPress host on Google is a minefield. Results are plagued by fluffy reviews recommending WordPress hosts that also happen to pay large commission payouts. I want to avoid that. This is my attempt at an honest guide.
