Choosing a fast, secure WordPress host is an important move for any business. Here’s a list of the best WordPress hosting packages – according to our clients, companies we’ve worked alongside and our own experiences of configuring WordPress hosts. It’s worth noting that I’ve included recommendations for cloud hosting for international hosting.
We recommend all of the services on this page – Builtvisible uses TSOhost and MAXcdn, but we work with clients who host WordPress sites on all of them. Enjoy!
Easily the fastest and most secure hosting service for WordPress!
By far, TSOhost.com are the fastest hosting providers in the UK offering only the highest levels of security. Their team are knowledgeable, friendly and quick to respond. Builtvisible has been hosted with TSOhost since November 2010. We reviewed their platform and security tested it before signing up – check out our site speed! Our setup uses the Ultimate Hosting package, recently upgraded to PHP 5.6. WordPress is running very, very quickly at the moment!
Their main hosting is based in the UK (they don’t provide a CDN – try MAXcdn, setup instructions are here) to speed up your site internationally.
Tip: The Clustered Platform: Ultimate Hosting Package is solid as a rock, even in extreme traffic conditions. The team have recently lauched a site migration service, too – so if you can hand over things like you FTP accounts details, domain registrar information, they’ll migrate your files, databases and WordPress installation as part of the package. I think that’s a unique offering, and it’s a seriously good idea!
