Best web hosts for Wordpress blogs and websites: Wordpress's own recommendations

Wordpress is one of the most popular blogging/ website creation software. It is a full-fledged content management system (CMS) for website building and especially suits blogs. A great number of self-hosted blogs are created with Wordpress software.

For those new to blogging or web hosting, let us quickly clarify that Wordpress blogs and Woprdpress CMS are two different things. You can open a free blog on Wordpress.com and the blog will be like xyz.wordpress.com. Wordpress will give you that web address as well as host it free for you. But Wordpress CMS is a software that you download on your computer and create beautiful blogs/ websites through it. However, you will have to pay for domain name registration and also hosting the website/ blog on the www. Wordpress CMS can be downloaded from wordpress.org website. 

Let's now go to Wordpress CMS.

Best web hosts for Wordpress blogs and websites.

Most big web hosting companies have facility for hosting a website or blog created using Wordpress CMS. That facility makes your task easy even if you don't know much technology.

But Wordpress itself recommends some web hosts. It says, it selects these favorites based on ease, design and other factors (These include their contribution to Wordpress too!) and reviews the list many times a year. At present the list includes these web hosts:

BlueHost
DreamHost
SiteGround

Whether you go by their recommendation or not, there is one good thing about this listing: there are links to forums on each of these hosts, so that you can have a taste of their service before you buy their plan.
