Who Has The Fastest WordPress Hosting?
Recently, the site Top-Cheap-Web-Hosting.com (News - Alert) released a little tidbit that's no doubt going to be enthusiastically received by all the bloggers out there, especially those who want to turn blogging into a vocation. Top-Cheap-Web-Hosting.com announced which host had the fastest WordPress hosting services, and the nod went to BlueHost.
Top-Cheap-Web-Hosting.com's nod, meanwhile, is no small thing in and of itself, as the total number of competitors in that pool represented every WordPress Web host that they had reviewed since 2009, based on not only hosting speed, but also on reliability, as measured by the experiences of the Top-Cheap-Web-Hosting.com editors themselves.
BlueHost has been in operation for more than 16 years, and was the first shared Web hosting company to bring in plans specifically optimized for WordPress. BlueHost has, at last report, hosted WordPress sites numbering in the millions, and with that experience has in turn gathered plenty of knowledge on how to best provide hosting for WordPress sites.
It's not just experience and knowledge that BlueHost brings to the table, either; they also boast massive investment in technology. BlueHost has reportedly put in over $20 million in its three dedicated data centers since 2010 alone. All of the BlueHost servers, as a result, run under a platform well-described as "robust", including 4x AMD Opteron processors, 32 gigabytes of DDR3 RAM (News - Alert), and RAID 10 storage, along with four separate fiber lines to connect them.
This isn't the first time BlueHost has taken awards, either; back in February, BlueHost took home Web Host Provider of the Year from 100Best-Free-Web-Space.com's rankings, which provides an extra note of credibility to the proceedings.
WordPress hosting with BlueHost generally starts at $6.95, but following their recent award, they've gone to a special promotional plan in which interested parties going through a promotional link can get access to special pricing, specifically, $3.95 a month. This in turn provides a free domain name for life, and unlimited WordPress sites on one account. Users also get 256 megabytes of PHP "memory limit", the ability to run PHP as suPHP, several site-building tools like cPanel and Fantastico, 24/7 WordPress support based completely in the United States, load times measured, on average, under two seconds, 99 percent guaranteed uptime and a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.
It's a very robust offering indeed, and those looking to start their road to WordPress success may want to start with BlueHost, a company that's not only got plenty to offer, but is willing to do so at surprisingly low rates.
