Bluehost is one of the hosting companies recommended by WordPress. Powering over 2 million websites on the internet, it has been one of the most popular hosting providers in the world.

Bluehost has been recommended by WordPress since 2005. This makes Bluehost one of the companies to consider when it comes to WordPress hosting.

Bluehost has one of the cheapest hosting plans on the market. This makes it perfect for beginners or people with a tight budget. Bluehost has some amazing plans at an affordable price.

Bluehost plan starts at $2.95/month for 36 months. If you take a 12-month plan, it will cost you around $4.95/month.

The ‘BASIC’ Bluehost plan includes-

  • 1 website
  • 50 GB SSD Storage
  • Custom Theme
  • Unmetered Bandwidth- Let me tell you this doesn’t mean you have unlimited bandwidth, but for most websites it is sufficient, so company advertise as unmetered bandwidth. If the company has concerns with the bandwidth then they will inform you via email. Usually bandwidths are sufficient, and when your website needs more space or bandwidth then you can upgrade your account. But most of the time it is not needed. It is sufficient until and unless you get lots of traffic on your website.
  • 20 MySQL Databases

Every Bluehost plan includes

  • Free domain for one year
  • Free Cloudflare CDN
  • Free SSL certificate

Dreamhost is another web hosting company recommended by WordPress. It has been used by various WordPress blogs, application developers, and small businesses. Over 1.5 million+ websites, WordPress blogs, and applications are hosted on Dreamhost.

There are two WordPress hosting plans on Dreamhost- WordPress Starter and WordPress Unlimited. All the plans on Dreamhost include:

  • Free Domain for one year
  • Free SSL certificate

The ‘STARTER’ plan includes:

  • 1 Website
  • Unmetered Bandwidth
  • 50 GB SSD Storage.

But this is where Dreamhost gets interesting. Both ‘Starter’ and ‘Unlimited’ plans have $2.95/month if billed annually.

The ‘UNLIMITED’ plan includes:

  • Unlimited websites
  • Unmetered Bandwidth
  • Unlimited Storage
  • Unlimited Databases
  • WordPress Pre-installed

For the first year of Dreamhost, you get both ‘Starter’ and ‘Unlimited’ at the same price. So if you have more than one website to host, then Dreamhost is better than Bluehost.



Siteground is one of the well-known hosting companies out there. A little more on the expensive side, the Siteground plan starts at $3.99/month if billed annually. Recommended by WordPress, WooCommerce, and Yoast SEO makes Siteground one of the most trusted hosting companies.

If you need a lot of space and have a small budget then go for Bluehost or Dreamhost.
