About this Page

Minimum requirements

Any hosting provider can appear on the list as long as it meets minimum requirements listed below:

How options are displayed

The host options provided are sorted by user rating first and foremost. To rate a host, you must have a The WP World user account and be logged in. This should help reduce spam votes and trolling (hopefully 🤞).

If no ratings are available for a host or number of hosts, the remainder are sorted in alphabetical order.

Data and ratings

The hosting list here is meant to serve the visitor by providing both objective (data) and subjective (rating) information.

Some details, like the year a host was established or whether they are a current global WordCamp sponsor is purely objective.

Meanwhile, ideals around performance, security, ease of use, and others vary by user and skill level and are, therefore, subjective.

The goal here is to offer a mix of both when coming to a conclusion about the quality of a host.

What rubrics are being used?

There are two main rubrics being considered for inclusion on this page. The first was proposed as a scoring matrix which would aid in not only determining inclusion, but also sort order.

The second is called Project Bedrock and aims to not only determine eligibility, but also what data is most important to show.

Am I missing something?

If you meet the criteria and want to be listed on this page, let us know! If you are listed and some of the information needs to change, we want to know that too.

Disclaimer: The WP World reserves the right to remove individual ratings and list/de-list companies on this page for any reason. Criteria for inclusion may also change at any time, though it’ll be updated here. None of the links on this list are affiliate links and none of the listings, placements, or ratings have been paid for, to the best of the knowledge of The WP World.
