Hello

I've been dabbling in web hosting. graphics, etc for quite a while but I'm use to bigger sites (music acts, large companies etc). I'm looking to start a smallish blog with my fiancee. While I think it won't be anything huge where we would take up 20-30 GB of traffic I want to make sure I don't sell ourselves short or pay for a huge package only to find out we aren't using 97% of it.

Basically in a nut shell the blog will be about cooking and saving money. I'm 99% percent sold on wordpress theme unless some act of god proves to me that it isn't good to use

So I'm looking for a good host that just has crazy good uptime and can handle something simple as a blog. I plan on buying a domain through namecheap.com. I noticed they have web hosting but I'm a little leery as they offer those famous words of "unlimited" which is never true. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Namecheap.com is ok, but I would recommend Stablehost (its what we use for some of our sites).
As far as what package to use, its not so much the bandwith that you would really need to worry about. Since you will be using wordpress, I would take a look at what plugins you want/use to determine how much memory you will need for your server to help determine what package best fits you.

Need a good web host? — Read our 2018 Review of the Best Web Hosts
Quite often, problems with web sites are caused by having a rotten web host. Worse yet, many hosts try to blame you (the customer) for the problems! So dump that lousy company. Say goodbye to slow sites, unresponsive support techs, and downtime. Find yourself a new host today. Whether you need shared, reseller, VPS, semi-dedicated, cloud, or dedicated hosting, something on our list should be a good upgrade for you.



This was an unanswered question or unresolved issue found during a site audit. It's hard to have an FAQ when the answers are missing, or final outcomes are unknown. At The Digital FAQ support forum, questions are never intentionally ignored, and may have been missed due to a forum glitch or human error. More details on the audit. (In some cases, threads have been edited/updated with newer information.)
