When starting a blog, choosing a hosting provider is one of the first steps. However, to choose a best hosting providers is not easy, the choice will affect the development of your website in the future.

A best hosting service provider will be evaluated based on the following factors

    • Maintain your website in stable operation during the period of use
    • The price is reasonable and not too skyrocketing upon renewal
    • Free SSL support
    • Good page load times and data processing speeds
    • Servers available in many different continents. Match with the target audience you are targeting. The closer the server is, the faster the transmission line will be
    • There is data backup mode, which helps you not lose data or restore data when needed.
    • Good security mode, minimizing the risk of your website being attacked by hackers
    • Support 24/7, support staff have wide knowledge to help you handle website-related errors.
    • Excellent user reviews. You should visit trustpilot to see user reviews.

Probably no hosting provider will satisfy all of the above factors, but most must satisfy most of them. Also, you should choose a hosting provider that suits your purposes such as: “you are a beginner and want to experiment, you want the cheapest price, the most reasonable monthly price and not skyrocketing, good support service” …

Here are the best hosting providers according to my review in 2020. It is based on many different factors, but largely depends on the level of support service and user reviews on Trustpilot.

Final conclusion about the best hosting providers

Why don’t I put BlueHost, HostGator … on the list? Because at the present time, Their hosting packages are being rated badly by their customers. That’s what hinders me from putting them in the list of the best hosting providers.

BlueHost on Truspilot

Based on the audience you target, based on the price of the service package, based on the location of the hosting center, based on the level of support of the support staff … you should choose for yourself. Best hosting providers will be good for your website in the short term and in the future.

If you choose a bad hosting provider, the impact on your website and on yourself is not small. Summary 6 best service providers based on reviews on Trustpilot include:

    • Dreamhost
    • A2 hosting
    • Hostinger
    • TMDhosting
    • SiteGround
    • Stablehost
