3. Media Temple

This Los Angeles based web host offers varied type of hosting services; e.g. Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting, Dedicated Hosting and Cloud Hosting. The shared hosting plan which works mainly for small businesses comes for $ 20 per month. However, yearly subscription costs only $16.67 per month. Under this plan comes 1TB Bandwidth and 100 GB space. You can host up to 1000 websites and configure 1000 emails at domain level. There are many web hosts offering similar storage space and bandwidth but do not provide option to host 1000 domains. This is where many customers turn to Media Template Web Hosting facility. 

4. Wp Engine

World’s beautiful websites are built in Wordpress. There is no shortage of web hosts offering Wordpress application hosting and one click install; these companies also offer other hosting solutions like Windows Hosting, Linux Hosting, Java Hosting etc. In the year 2010, Wp Engine cane in to existence exclusively for Wordpress application hosting. Its functionalities are so fluid that even a novice can host Wordpress application. The benefits of Wp Engine are faster image downloads, robust security features and wonderful user experience. When in trouble, just raise a trouble ticket and support team gets available within 1 or 2 hours.

5. GoDaddy

Are you looking for a cheap and reliable website? Then, nothing can beat Godaddy. You can host your web applications with Godaddy servers for as low as $1 per month. The site uptime is super with Godaddy. The cPannel is fully customizable; one can set according to needs. Only thing that I hate about Godaddy is customer support. At times, support guys are dumbstruck no matter how much you need them.  Other than this, Windows, Linux or application hosting like WordPress, choice is completely your’s.

6. iPage

The USP of iPage is cheapest web hosting service. These are in business since 15 long years. When you turn to iPage web hosting, you will get a free domain name, unlimited bandwidth and unlimited email accounts. If that seems less, hold a moment, you will also get $200 adwords credit. What else a business need? The SiteLock security feature quickly detect security breaches so your business is always safe from threats.

7. HostGator

Host Gator is my all time favorite web host for the reasons of reliability, high site uptime and nice customer support. Few of my friends say its little costly when compared to other hosting companies. But I won’t mind selling few extra bucks if my website is sitting on safe hands and reaching to customers without interruptions. Beginners can go for hatchling plan with $5.56 per month only. However business plan costs $ 11.96 dollar per month.

So those are the web hosting companies I am expecting to be in tight competition with each other in 2016. Do you know a web host which will compete in hosting business in coming days / years? Share your views.
