Although the prices may seem slightly higher in comparison with other hosting services, it is totally worth it’s price. That's because HostPapa offers full support from the very beginning and up until the website release and, moreover, offers further maintenance support after the website is built. Apart from 24/7/365 chat, phone and email support, you will be offered a free 30-minutes introduction course, monitoring services and professional assistance with different kinds of issues. So, we consider this hosting as good, reliable and extremely secure. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced users, and especially for small business holders that don’t want to hire expensive system administration staff.

Most modern blogs require PHP and MySQL, so make sure that the hosting provider supports both.

The main content of blogs is text. This means that you will not need lots of disk space to host a blog. 100-500 Mb would be enough. However, if you are planning to add pictures to your posts, you will need a bigger hosting package, around 0.5-1 Gb.

In our rating you can find the best hosting companies that meet the above mentioned requirements.
