I’m currently looking into a new hosting package for Search Engine Journal and reviewing the recommended WordPress hosting companies as provided by WordPress.
Their top WordPress Hosting recommendations which I am looking into are as follow:
Focus on posting to your blog, not managing it. Let Yahoo! Web Hosting and WordPress take the pain out of blog hosting and administration so you can concentrate on what matters most: your message and your audience.
* 200 / 400 / 500 GB data transfer per month
* Support for up to 1 million page views per day
* 5 / 10/ 20 GB disk space for your posts, graphics, and more
* Support for PHP, Perl, and MySQL
* 24-hour toll-free phone support
WordPress Auto-Install, 10 GB disk storage, FREE Domain Name, 2500 POP / WebMail addresses, 200 GB/mo transfer, Host 6 Domains on 1 Account, 20 Subdomains, 50 mySQL databases, Free Control Panel, Free Fantastico, 24/7 Network Monitoring, 99% Uptime Guarantee, Mirrored Storage Backups, No hidden fees, Voted Best Support in 2004.
WordPress auto-install and upgrade, 20GB disk storage, 1000GB bandwidth, free domain, unlimited databases, 3000 email accounts, unlimited domain forwarding, Jabber support.” Dreamhost supports mod_security. (They call it “extra web security” in their control panel.)
Before taking the dive, if any readers have recommendations on web hosting solutions for a high profile high traffic WordPress Blog, please feel free to list them below in the comments.
Better yet, if you have dealt with any of these companies, your reviews and experiences are very welcome. Thanks!
