What are some of the top hosting companies 2016-2017? Best stable shared hosting for WordPress, Joomla, shared hosting for medium and high traffic websites.
After Hostgator April 2014 network outages, I decided to move my websites to more reliable hosting. I found in Google many “Top 10 web hosting companies” websites. Most of these sites are based on affiliate payouts, they simply list the companies that pay the higest commissions. They promote EIG (Endurance International Group) brands.
EIG corporation acquired a large number of web hosting companies: Hostgator, BlueHost, iPage, JustHost, FatCow, Arvixe, IPOWER, NetFirms, PowWeb, HostMonster, Hostnine, Homestead, StartLogic, SEO Hosting, Intuit Websites and other companies. Since they are bought by EIG, their service decrease. A lot of people complain about slow servers, email issues, poor customer service (outsourced to India).
Determining what the best hosting company is for an enterprise size business, in comparison to a medium, or even smaller sized business can make a big difference in the most preferred or ideal web hosting provider.
When considering the best hosting company for you and your business or product, consider the available bandwidth, cloud-storage capabilities, and total available data per plan. More importantly, research whether or not the hosting servers you’re interested in are physically based, and where (as it’s significant for connection purpose), and also how many companies or websites each server hosts – for optimizing or maintaining desirable speed for your website or business.
I did research, read reviews on Webhostingtalk forum and other popular webhosting forums to find best non-EIG hosting brands.
These hosting companies offer budget shared hosting plans are perfect for niche sites, personal blogs, portfolio websites.
