Best Cheap WordPress Hosting

I have been doing some research for my WordPress plugin users who are trying to find a cheap yet reliable WordPress hosting for their websites. While doing this research I also looked for web hosts that offer the best value for the money. It looks like A2 Hosting is ahead of everyone with their WordPress Lite plan. They are offering this WordPress hosting plan for just $3.92/month (instead of the regular $7.99/month with a massive 51% discount).

1) A2 Hosting

If you are planning to get started with a new website or an existing WordPress user trying to move to a new hosting, this Lite plan might just be the one for you. They are offering this WordPress hosting plan for just $3.92/month with a huge a 51% discount. A2 Hosting is known for good speed, reliability, and support. With a 99.9% uptime and 20x faster server, any small to medium site should be good to go with this plan. As a bonus, you also get a free domain, free SSL and free SSD (solid state drive).

Now even though Basic should suffice for the startup I would recommend you to go for the Prime plan at the moment. Just for extra $2, you are getting expensive managed WordPress hosting and unlimited everything for the price of shared hosting. Check this Bluehost review for more information.

Bluehost is also known for offering good cloud hosting service (also known as cloud sites) for a cheaper price. You can find more information on cloud sites in this Bluehost cloud hosting review.

3) SiteGround

SiteGround is right below A2 Hosting with their StartUp plan. They are offering this WordPress hosting plan for just $3.95/month (including a 60% discount). SiteGround is one of the hosts that offers tons of features for a really good price. Their StartUp plan comes with a free domain, free SSL certificate, free Cloudflare CDN (content delivery network), free daily backup, free SSD storage, free site transfer etc. SiteGround is very popular these days for their security and support. They always keep their servers up to date so you can get access to the latest web technology when it’s available.

Even though StartUp is the cheapest SiteGround plan, I would recommend you to go for the GrowBig plan instead. Just for extra $2 you can host multiple websites and get priority technical support, advanced WordPress caching (SiteGround SuperCacher) and 30 backup copies of your site available at all times.

You can find out why they are one of the best web hosts in this SiteGround web hosting review.

4) HostGator

HostGator is at number 4 with their Starter plan. They are offering this WordPress hosting plan for just $5.95/month (including a 40% discount). One good thing about their starter WordPress plan is that it runs on cloud. This makes it really stand out among other shared hosting plans out there. With 2.5x more speed than a normal shared hosting server and 50GB storage, your website should be able to run on a HostGator server for a long time (no matter how much traffic you get).

5) DreamHost

DreamHost is offering their special shared hosting plan for just $7.95/month (including a 20% discount). It is one of the top web hosts recommended by the official WordPress guys. They offer a free domain and a free SSL certificate with this WordPress hosting plan. The SSL certificate is free so you can run a secure HTTPs site without having to pay for it. They also provide SSDs, support for PHP5 and IPv6.  Their SSD setup can make your website load 200% faster than a site running on HDD hosting.

6) WP Engine

If you want to offer a good experience to your users by providing a lightning fast web server and bulletproof security, WP Engine is the way to go. Since WP Engine web hosting is not cheap, I only recommend them to users who are serious about their websites and businesses. Fortunately, they have agreed to offer a special deal for my users. So if you use this special link here to sign up, you will get 4 months free on an annual plan purchase or 20% off the first month’s payment.

When you compare all the cheap WordPress hosting plans it comes down to either SiteGround vs Bluehost or Bluehost vs HostGator.

I hope this article helped you make a better comparison of all the cheapest WordPress hosting plans out there. If you have any past experience with any of these WordPress hosting plans feel free to share it in the comments.
