Now there's some kinda-good stuff and kinda-bad stuff here...Where it gets tricky is that there are tons and tons of web hosting companies these days. And really, they all kinda look the same. They all offer basically the same service, the same pricing, and the same options.

Plus, they use so much technical jargon that it's hard to keep things straight. So how are you supposed to sort through all the options and figure out which web hosting company is best for you?

Well, we can really boil things down here. As an online business owner, really what you need most from a web hosting company is just three things: Security and reliability, great customer service, and fair pricing.

And the good news is, after over two decades online, I've tried, tested, and done a ton of research on web hosts...and I've been able to boil it down to just a small handful of recommendations that I make for my students.

These are hosts that I've used, vigorously tested, and can confidently suggest that you look into further to see which one will fit your needs.

Right off the bat, if you're just getting started, want to keep things simple, and keep your costs low, then Web Hosting Hub is a great choice. They offer simple, easy to understand hosting options with very competitive pricing.

Next, if you'd like hosting that's a little more flexible, that comes with additional options and features, then it's tough to go wrong with SiteGround. They offer a variety of hosting options, which makes upgrading as your business grows a breeze.

Next, if you want a more "hands-off" approach to your website, WP Engine offers managed WordPress hosting. This frees you up to focus on other areas of your business and you won't have to worry about the day-to-day management of your website.

There are a few other hosts I recommend too. Check the Show Notes below for links and further resources.
