SocialDzine’s Preferred Website Hosting Companies

These are sites I’ve worked with for nearly a decade now and would recommend any of them to my clients.

Web Hosting Pad

Webhostingpad is the hosting company I recommend when money is an issue.  While they aren’t the largest, they provide everything you need at a reasonable price.  For $1.99 a month you have domain hosting with access to a control panel, support and a free domain name.  They are perfect for hosting a blog/website.  They offer additional products such as CloudFlare for free and other products such as an SSL or Barracuda at a very good, competitive price.  You’ll receive over $200 in online advertising credits on sites like Google, Facebook and Yahoo when you sign up.

A Small Orange

A Small Orange offers a small business everything they need to run like a big corporation.  The 99.9% uptime guarantee also features daily backups, with multiple restoration points. Password-protected directories, IP-blocking, and hotlink/leech protection are all also included.  Screaming fast load times, 24/7 support and one of the best prices in the industry at $35 a year for shared hosting.

Host Gator

hostgator website hosting HostGator.  Good prices and plenty of options. Their middle package offers unlimited domains hosted on one account for one monthly fee. According to Inc. Magazine, HostGator is the 21st fastest growing private company in America, the second fastest growing private company in the “business services” sector, and the fastest growing private company in Texas.  Host Gator only offers Google ad credit but you get a shared SSL and with the premium package you receive a free Toll-Free number for your business.

Arvixe

Arvixe offers a free domain name for life and with their smallest package you can host 6 domains.  If you’re looking to start an online business and want a few different websites or maybe everyone in the family is looking to say something to the world.  With this package you’re not limited to just one domain and one site hosted.  They offer a 60 day money-back guarantee, free CloudFlare and $200 in online advertising credit.
