Digital Ocean

Illustration for article titled These Are The Four Best Web Hosting Services, As Chosen By You

I switched to DigitalOcean a few months ago and couldn’t be happier. It’s not quite as simplified as some but is the most extensive of the cheap options I’ve found. - Jay

I fully agree. For personal projects, nothing really beats their $5 a month VPS option. Unless you’ve got a pretty massive side project going on, that’s an awesome deal. - Jacobm001

Amazon AWS

So I like using AWS, but that’s also because I enjoy running my own server. Is there a way to do web hosting with AWS for those who aren’t as technically savvy? Also, AWS pricing (based on hours) is annoying. I pay for yearly packages and still owe $2-$5 a month because of how things are calculated. - rezzyk


DreamHost

I’ll throw my hat in the ring for Dreamhost. Moved to them about 10 years ago when I got tired of maintaining web servers and I couldn’t be happier. Their support is quick and friendly, the price is reasonable, and overall a quality service. THey may not be the fastest on the planet for shared hosting but I’m happy with what I get there. - Kasala

HoboHost

I think it’s the best because it’s $11.00 for a year of cPanel SSD web hosting. They’re really reliable and more helpful than GoDaddy and you can’t beat it for the price. - techie90
