WordPress Web Hosting

There are hundreds of thousands of web hosts out there, the vast majority of which meet the WordPress minimum requirements, and choosing one from the crowd can be a chore. Just like flowers need the right enviroment to grow, WordPress works best when it's in a rich hosting environment. We've dealt with more hosts than you can imagine; in our opinion, the hosts below represent some of the best and brightest of the hosting world. If you do decide to go with one of the hosts below and click through from this page, some will donate a portion of your fee back—so you can have a great host and support WordPress at the same time.

If you don't need the flexibility of a full web host, you may consider getting a free blog on WordPress.com.
