The importance of web hosting is often underrated but we urge you to spend time getting to know your options and choosing the right hosting platform for your organisation. A good hosting solution will not only help with site performance but also with security, back ups and site maintenance.

There are a number of different options out there that offer more general packages, as well as dedicated WordPress packages. In today’s post, we’re going to take a look at four of the web’s most popular hosting companies that offer hosting services tailored specifically to WordPress.
