Below are the top 2 hosting services we would recommend and the reasons for our recommendations as of January 2016. We will update them should we find their services beneath recommending.
By far, the best hosting and domain registration service available to date. From your first domain purchase, Namecheap is not an upselling sales person pushing you to buy every last thing you don’t need. Although their coupon deals are excellent (Black Friday, winter coupons, etc) – it’s their customer service that has always saved us trouble and reassured us to stay with them for most of our hosting and domain registration needs.
Be sure to look up coupons before you buy anything from Namecheap – there is usually a coupon listed somewhere on the web, or on their own website to bolster sales.
We recommend Godaddy although with a caveat: Godaddy upsells and pushes you to buy things you don’t need. Why the recommendation? The seasonal low prices you can get with coupons from Retailmenot.com and other coupon sites.
Other notable services :
iFastNet.com – The automatic payment system is problematic and has resulted in outages for us. However, their service allows lots of addon domains unlike Namecheap and Godaddy at low cost, and the hosting itself seems promising.
Bluehost.com – Review not available.
