Adding this fresh and helpful review of hosting for WordPress:
And here’s a place that has user reviews as well as Awards in categories of hosting: http://webhostinggeeks.com/awards/
Not sure how authentic the Awards are. They may be more motivated by getting affiliate clicks. But the user reviews seem authentic and are sortable by positive, negative & useful. I noticed that neither Eleve2 or A Small Orange isn’t there at all and that InMotion is the top pick for VPS. So go figure!
- A Small Orange Taylor’s affiliate link (hosting service can do GIT gave free Adwords for sign up bonus)
- InMotion Sheila’s affiliate link
- Eleven2 Sheila’s affiliate link
- SiteGround (Sheila’s current preferred provider)
And of course here is the biggest issue they did not mention: They are a reseller of hosting! They are part of a group called endurance international. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endurance_International_Group
