Best Managed WordPress Hosting Companies For 2018
We’re often asked which web hosts we recommend to power WordPress websites, so we’ve put together this page to help you find the perfect host for your specific circumstances.
With countless web hosts out there, we wanted to make the process as easy as possible.
Please note that we do use affiliate links below, so if you make a purchase, we may receive a commission. Our opinions are our own and we only recommend hosts that we’ve had a positive experience with ourselves.
WPX Hosting (coupon)
WPX Hosting provides managed WordPress hosting. They’re fast and reliable. We moved to them after extensive downtime and support issues with our previous host.
They reply to support tickets VERY quick. Uptime is excellent, and they can cope with traffic spikes. Their control panel is very basic, but the simplicity is a huge time-saver (read our WPX Hosting review).
And they offer free malware scanning & removal!
Perfect for: Bloggers and small businesses who want a cost effective hosting solution that doesn’t compromise on speed.
Helpful features: Free domain migrations, free SSL certificates, free CDN, 1-click WordPress install, 24/7 support, unlimited email boxes, daily backups, SSD servers, application firewall, dedicated memory and more.
Pricing: Plans start at $24.99/month.
Kinsta offer specialist WordPress hosting that leverages Google’s Cloud Platform.
What we particularly love about Kinsta is their ability to scale hardware to cope with the biggest traffic spikes.
They have a very responsive support team and our experience with them so far has been excellent.
Page load times are exceptional, especially considering the recent addition of a free CDN to all plans.
One important note is that like a lot of WordPress managed hosting companies, Kinsta do not offer email hosting.
This is actually a good thing because it adds an extra layer of redundancy. Instead, you could use a platform like G Suite by Google for your emails.
Perfect for: Freelancers, startups, agencies and anyone that requires the ability to cope with large volumes of traffic.

Their pricing is very competitive, and they come with some seriously useful features such as WordPress site staging and more.
