    Hi every one, today i did like to share a list of web hosts that i recommend to others. I have chosen them on the basis of my 4 years (almost) of experience in shared web hosting. So first of all why should you get a good hosting? :neutral:
    You web host is the foundation of you website, if you want a website for your company or for you professional need then you need a web host with better server capability and server uptimes.

    Here are my list of recommended hosts:
    1. DigitalOcean
    2. InMotion
    3. Siteground
    I have personally use DigitalOcean and InMotion and they both perform pretty great for the price. I really love DigitalOcean because it's cloud based VPS hosting that is fully powered by SSD storage. SSD is a great option it reduced your website load times and server response time. VPS hosting is not beginner friendly as the company claims but there are a lot of well written guides that can help you setup you site, but it gives you the full control of your server.

    InMotion also offers SSD powered shared servers, what i like about shared servers is that they are pretty straight forward and also offer most needed features. InMotion hosting has great servers and better support.
    Their plans might appear more pricey than other shared hosts but its definitely worth it.

    I haven't tried Siteground myself but at least 90% of the review i read was positive so that makes me sure that they are good. But the only this i'm disappointed with is that they have a visitors per month limit which is bad for a growing site. They have a great customer support and server uptime. Siteground is best for hosting WordPress sites.

    Honorable mention:
    If you are looking for a cheap web host then you can consider Namecheap as they have the fastest customer support for such a low price. However if you are choosing their share plan for your website then go for a mid to high end plan or your website will be down when there is a few live visitors.

    Note: Most web hosts are fine for hosting HTML static webpages.

    Never try these hosts!
    Some web hosts gave me a really bad experience and i will never use em again nor recommend them and they are Bluehost, Hostgator and all hosts that are run by Endurance International Group. Bluehost and Hostgator were the first choice of many and was recommended by many webmasters but after they where acquired by Endurance International Group they all saw a fall in server performance and customer support. Still i see many recommend them, maybe because of their higher affiliate revenue.

    That's it with my list of recommended web hosts of 2017, share your views and opinions as replies. :)
