Hello everyone, if you are looking to get a website made, one of the important steps besides finding a developer is finding a good website host. There are a few things to consider when finding a host, such as price, page speed, shared hosting vs. dedicated hosting, and how easy it is to navigate the control panel for the website.

We will be going over most of those subjects. I will be going from personal experience off of shared hosting. So let’s get started!


1. Ionos


Ionos formally known as 1&1 is probably my favorite hosting company, the prices are cheap for hosting, they offer multiple plans of hosting to fit your needs, and the part that I love most, the website control panel they use is fully custom, most hosts use a software called Cpanel which is a good panel, has multiple features but can often be cluttered. For Ionos I will be talking about the Business hosting plan.


  • Hosting starts at $1 for the first year!
  • Unlimited Websites
  • Unlimited Storage
  • Your websites have up to 6GB of RAM
  • They give you a free SSL Wildcard Certificate
  • Free site scans for malicious code, be the first to know if your website has been exposed to possible hackers
  • Free CDN (Content Delivery Network)



  • If you purchase a domain through Ionos, it may take up to 48 hours to activate
  • No ticket support, phone support only.



2.  Namecheap

Namecheap is one of the most popular web hosts, they’re mostly known for cheap domain names, but do offer hosting. Their billing panel and website control panel may be a little confusing to navigate because they are two separate websites, but they have decent hosting. For Namecheap we will be going off of their Stellar Business plan. NameCheap uses CPanel which as I said above, may be confusing to navigate if you’re new to website hosting.


  • Unlimited Websites
  • Unmetered SSD
  • Automatic Backups
  • Free CDN (Content Delivery Network)
  • 50 SSL Certificates for your websites and subdomains



  • Business plan starts at $4.88/month
  • I found when I had a problem and contacted support, they would fix the problem without telling me the solution, which I found to be quite annoying.
  • Confusing Billing/Website control panels


In conclusion, a lot of the website hosts offer the same features, some may vary depending on what you’re looking for, such as storage, available ram, what kind of SSL Certificate they provide, and extra features. It’s always best to do your own research.
