Today we have a special comparison video where we’ll be recommending our top three picks for the best web host for wordpress beginners for those new to wordpress are unfamiliar with web hosting we’re going to briefly explain what a web host does and why you need one so by now you probably heard that word press is a powerful content management system used by top bloggers and big websites alike such as techcrunch.com here at how to make website.com we stand behind wordpress is the best blogging platform in the world and we’re committed to empowering others to create their own websites easily and affordably so how to get started well before you need three things to get a WordPress website up and running and these three things were one a domain name such as how to make website.com to a web host which allows you to install WordPress and store your information live on the Internet by renting space on their web servers and three a manual installation of the wordpress platform downloaded from wordpress.org before you had to get all three of these things and connect them all together manually which can be a headache for most people with no web developing experience today when you sign up for any of these recommended web shows you get all three bundled together with no hassle or fuss so which three webhost we recommend us before we rank them individually our top three include bluehost hostgator and siteground with each of these web host we were able to sign up and build a WordPress website from scratch in just minutes at this moment we would also like to give an honorable mention to dream host which is another wordpress recommended web shows now we’re going to compare performance by running a website speed test to see who is the fastest on the basic shared server plan the way we conducted this test is by using a tool by the company pingdom which performs a website speed test based on performance optimization and load times each website use the exact same theme header image and then one blog post with a single image also we added the same caching plug into each website to max out performance here are the results as you can see here each host scored the same performance grade of an 88 which means that our websites are highly optimized by using the same theme and caching plugin now the difference is in load times especially when compared to all other sites tested coming in third the hostgator site loaded up in 1.9 seconds which is faster than seventy four percent of tested sites that’s pretty solid performance for basic shared server plan in second we have blue host which loaded significantly faster than hostgator with a low time of just one point 11 seconds this load time was quick enough to be considered faster than eighty eight percent of tested sites what surprised me the most was site grounds performance since I crown is a much smaller company than the Giants bluehost and host gator the site brown site loaded up in under a second at a blazing 769 milliseconds which is faster than a whopping ninety three percent of tested sites and all this on the most basic shared server plan so for performance siteground blazes past the competition with bluehost coming in second and hostgator third now that we know the performance numbers next we’re going to compare pricing both normal and on sale to see which webhost is actually the most expensive weather on sale or during regular pricing all plans we are looking at will be the most basic shared server plan which is more than enough for beginners and cums wordpress ready PS if you want access to these special discounts click the link to the resource page in the description below for Hostgator regular pricing without discount starts at eight 95 per month which is a little bit on the price your side after applying discounts the current sale pricing starts as low as 3 95 for a three-year plan and 595 for a one-year plan so less than six dollars a month is very fair for what you get one last know about hostgator is that they do not offer a free domain upon registration so that adds an extra 1295 to your total cost for bluehost regular pricing without discount starts at seven ninety-nine per month about a dollar cheaper than hostgator after applying discounts the current sale pricing matches up with hostgator starting at 395 for a three-year plan and 595 for a one-year plan the difference is that bluehost includes your domain name free of charge with your sign up about twelve dollar value for our best performer siteground regular pricing without discount starts at nine ninety five per month which is the most expensive out of the three but you also get the fastest performance after applying discounts the current sale pressing drops by a whopping 60 percent to only 3 95 per month and this 390 fibery applies to one your plans as well on top of all that you also get a free domain name just like blue hose after reviewing the pricing and performance
