After working with WordPress for a decade, I have opinions about the absolute best headache reducing plugins and tools.
When you sign up for bad hosting, its no fun for anyone. Not even the bad hosting company (I'm basing this on the often inhospitable customer service I've received from said bad hosting companies, they can't possibly be having fun).
Would you like:
- a slow website*
- a hacked website*
- poor support if things go wrong*
If the answer is NO, I recommend going with WPEngine for WordPress hosting. I always encourage my clients to pay a little more to save themselves the hassle.
