    I agree the best hosting for you is one that meets your needs. What one person thinks is the best another will say they are bad.

    As far as wordpress hosting you have to do your research. As most that offer wordpress hosting have it set up on the same shared hosting server.

    You want to make sure they are running SSD drives, cloud linux, light speed, mariadb and so on.

    Agree with @CenTex Hosting that the best hosting is the one that meets your needs. But if you want to check the reviews of a certain hosting provider then you can check the review sites like trustpilot.com etc. From there you can search the site you want to check the review for.

    Contact them with your requirements and send it to the support department and see how fast they respond which is usually an indicator of how fast their support response is. If that is to your satisfaction I think you'll be fine as they are transparent and have been in the industry for a long time.

    There are many web hosting providers offering you the customized WordPress hosting environment comprised of CloudLinux OS, LiteSpeed web server with SSD storage. Prepare list of such web hosts, compare their plans, match your requirements and choose the host who has the best reviews across Internet.

    While the support is so/so, DreamHost put together a nice architecture with their Dreampress2 service. They give you a VPS for the fronted, and a MySQL instance on a separate server. This providers a lot of extra muscle. Then they have a Varnish reverse proxy on NginX caching everything. The DB is also Memcached. And they will throw in a cloudflare CDN to boot, which you can edge cache static content. It all adds up to a lightning fast site.

    If you're looking for shared hosting, I would recommend the company I use for my personal site, Nexcess. It's a few bucks more than the really cheap plans from hosts like Hostgator and other unreliable EIG hosts, but it's worlds better quality. You can check out the details here. https://www.nexcess.net/wordpress/hosting

    Actually, It is difficult to point out single name. There are many hosting companies out there. It would be better for you to compare among different WP hosting providers to find out the best one. Here you will find complete comparison among different WordPress Hosting providers.

    If you want a good and reliable hosting for wordpress site, then I suggest choosing Siteground. I have been with them for over a year and all I can say is - WOW.

    Pros
    1. Website transfer is free. Before that I hosted my website with godaddy. Not anymore...
    2. Support was top notch. I had 2 issues, both were answered very quickly and efficiently.
    3. Speed is very good. They even have their own webcash wordpress plugin (supercasher or smth, can't remember). Plus they offer free cloudflare CDN to speed up things.
    4. Free daily backup.
    5. Free domain
    6. You get what you pay for. The lowest plan suitable for ~10.000 visits per month. Once it goes up you will have to upgrade to bigger plans (~25.000 or ~100.000 visits)

    Cons:
    1. Only one website for lowest price of 5.95$
    2. You pay for a year (no monthly or quarterly payments)

    If you want more websites, then price goes up to 9.95$ per month.

    Another host that is good for you is MDD hosting. Their prices are lower.

    I will be giving you the answer from my personal experience. I use WordPress for my blog and I am using the same web hosting company for the last 4 years. In the coming years also I will use the same web hosting company as my hosting provider. If you are just starting your Wordpress website, shared hosting plan is best for you. I personally use HostGator Hatchling plan for hosting provider which is for only one blog but has almost all the facilities. Before choosing one hosting company for your WordPress blog, you will have to consider the below parameters:

    * How is the price for the hosting plan? Cause you will have to renew it every year. So, this is better to check the price.
    * How is the downtime? Is it high or low? If the downtime is high then this is not good for your website. Cause people will come to your site and they will see your site is down. So, choose a web hosting company with low downtime.
    * How is the customer service? If the customer service is not good then do not sign up with that hosting provider. Always sign up with a compnay who has a 24x7 customer service and has live chat service.
    * Check whether you are getting any additional benefit within your budget or not.

    Considering all the above steps I choose HostGator Hatchling plan. If you want to know why I am using HostGator Hosting for the last 4 years, you can read the article in my blog TechnTechie to get all the pros and cons of HostGator Hosting , which is the best WordPress hosting.

    I'm sure a hosting company wouldn't just steal my money from me, but then again, you never know, but for me, its just the point of the matter, I want a host who can accommodate for my needs, and paypal is something I feel is important, and if its important to me, it should be important to them as well, right? because a host should want your business, not lecture or try to blow you off.
