WordPress hosting – collectively the favorite topic to talk about when you meet some fellow WordPress people at a conference. Or is it just me?

Anyway, the web is chock full of WordPress hosting reviews, comparisons, recommendations and


. Everyone seems to have their favorite provider … as well as their least favorite one.

And that’s probably the main problem with hosting reviews. I mean, a piece of advice like, “hey, this hosting platform works for me, and therefore you should use it too” perhaps isn’t the most useful advice imaginable. And it’s surely not advice that is most likely to work for the majority of people.

So, even though we indeed have our favorites when it comes to WordPress hosting, and even more so, each individual member of our team has their own favorites too, we’ve decided to take a different path and give you – our readers – the spotlight:

TL;DR This is our


annual WordPress hosting survey.

Announcing our WordPress hosting survey, “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of WordPress Hosting” – 2018 edition

What’s the goal of this WordPress hosting survey?

In short, we really want to know how the popular hosting companies and their specific hosting plans/packages end up performing for people in the long run.

I mean, to some extent, reviewing WordPress hosting is like reviewing cars. For instance, Jeremy Clarkson can tell you all about powerrrrr and torque and price. But he won’t be able to tell you how it’s like to live with a certain car over the long haul, how it’s like to drive it every day, and so on.

It’s the same thing with hosting. At the end of the day, the best hosting company isn’t the one that has the best parameters on paper. It is the one that just works and does its job for months years without fail.

And this kind of info you just can’t obtain without doing a survey and getting real opinions from real people. That’s where this survey comes into play.

How does this survey work?

Simple, just click the start button and try getting through as many questions as you can. If you don’t have time to complete the whole survey (takes about 10 minutes), just scroll down and submit whatever answers you do have. That way your input will still count.

At the end of this whole thing, we will have a complete, data-driven comparison that should help us name the best hosting company all around (… for different price points, specific niches, plus lots of other interesting conclusions).

We’ll publish the results on this blog after we get minimum 500 results as we did in the past editions.
