Winner: InMotion Hosting

Best Shared Hosting InMotion

InMotion Hosting has been one of our award winners from the start. And, for 2022 they are the winner for Best Shared Hosting. InMotion Hosting includes their UltraStack servers and Max Speed Zone Technology for faster performing websites. Their customer support continues to be very responsive, helpful, and courteous. And, now they are including unlimited features for websites, disk space, bandwidth, databases, and email accounts—providing even more value.

Honorable Mention: A2 Hosting
A2 Hosting is another top choice for Shared Hosting. In fact, this category is so close that both of these hosts could be winners. A2 Hosting includes premium features that are usually reserved for more expensive managed hosting plans. And, A2’s servers provide faster performance—particularly their Turbo Server plans.

Best VPS Hosting

Winner: Liquid Web

Best VPS Hosting Liquid Web

When it comes to VPS Hosting, Liquid Web is again our award winner for this year. Their Managed VPS Hosting plans include the best premium features in our opinion, and they have a hosting plan for every budget level.

Liquid Web’s main goal is to provide hosting for mission-critical applications. And with their VPS Hosting, you get affordable hosting that is secure, fast performing, and includes a 100% uptime SLA.

Honorable Mention: InMotion Hosting
InMotion Hosting is not only a great Shared Hosting provider, but they are equally impressive when it comes to VPS Hosting. InMotion offers affordable Managed VPS Hosting plans that include outstanding features and many advantages of a dedicated server but at a much lower cost.

Best Managed WordPress Hosting

Winner: WP Engine

Best Managed WordPress Hosting WP Engine

Managed WordPress Hosting is the hottest type of hosting in the industry now. While it’s more competitive than ever, and there are some excellent choices, WP Engine once again is our award winner for 2022.

WP Engine continues to add innovative features to their managed WordPress hosting plans. Their hosting environment allows your websites to run super-fast. And, their expert WordPress support staff continually goes the extra step to make sure your questions or issues are resolved.

Honorable Mention: WPX Hosting
WPX Hosting is fast becoming one of the most respected managed hosting providers in the WordPress community. WPX focuses on providing fast servers, ultra-responsive customer support, and an easy to use interface. In our opinion, they have greatly succeeded on all fronts.

Best Dedicated Servers

Winner: Liquid Web

Best Dedicated Servers Liquid Web

As with their VPS, Liquid Web offers the best selection of Dedicated Servers that we’re aware of. Whether you need Managed Dedicated Servers or Cloud Dedicated Servers, Liquid Web provides the most comprehensive lineup of servers. So no matter how much power or resources you need, you’ll be able to get a fast performing server for your mission-critical sites.

Liquid Web includes features such as built-in backup drives, offsite backups, multi-level DDoS protection, and their 100% uptime SLA.

Honorable Mention: InMotion Hosting
InMotion Hosting’s Dedicated Server lineup continues to be very impressive. If you’re looking for an affordable, fully managed dedicated server, they are definitely worth a look.

Best WooCommerce Hosting

Winner: Nexcess

Best WooCommerce Hosting Nexcess

Although the number of Managed WooCommerce Hosting plans continues to grow, Nexcess is our award winner again for 2022. For years now, Nexcess has taken WooCommerce hosting to a whole new level with the inclusion of features that speed up your online store, improve your E-commerce reporting, and take care of your abandoned cart issues.

Honorable Mention: WP Engine
With their excellent track record with managed WordPress hosting, it isn’t surprising that WP Engine now also offers excellent WooCommerce hosting plans. WP Engine’s commitment and complete focus on WordPress also pays dividends if you’re looking for quality hosting for your WooCommerce sites.

Best Beginner Web Hosting

Winner: Bluehost

Best Beginner Web Hosting Bluehost

While Bluehost offers a wide array of hosting services, in our opinion they’re best suited for beginning WordPress users. Bluehost is recommended by WordPress.org and they are this year’s award winner for Beginner Web Hosting.

Bluehost’s custom cPanel and WordPress dashboards make things easier for new website owners. They also provide website builders to speed up the site creation process. And, Bluehost offers low introductory prices.

Honorable Mention: InterServer
InterServer continues to offer hosting plans that include all the features you need to host a successful website—and at a very low cost.

Best Website Builder

Winner: DreamHost

Best Website Builder DreamHost

We’ve been impressed with DreamHost’s site builder since years ago when it was called Remixer. They have since refined and improved the product to create WordPress sites, and it is now named WP Website Builder. The site creation wizard really simplifies the process along with the drag and drop editor. And, it includes some nice looking templates. Add it all up, and DreamHost is this year’s award winner for Best Website Builder.

Honorable Mention: InMotion Hosting
InMotion Hosting was one of the first hosts to offer a WordPress website builder: BoldGrid. BoldGrid continues to be a great alternative to the standard way of creating WordPress sites. The big advantage with BoldGrid is that you also get advanced features such as automatic backups, website staging, etc.

Best Blogger Hosting

Winner: A2 Hosting

Best Blogger Hosting A2

We already mentioned A2 Hosting as a top choice for Shared Web Hosting, but what also makes A2 stand out from the competition is that they include many premium features that are usually found in more expensive managed hosting plans. When it comes to WordPress, you can not only have it pre-installed for you, but your A2 Hosting plan also includes website staging, server rewind backups, and traffic spike protection.

A2 Hosting’s optimized WordPress environment for speed and security earn them this year’s award for Best Blogger Hosting.

Honorable Mention: GreenGeeks
While GreenGeeks is primarily known for their outstanding green web hosting, they continue to be a global sponsor of WordCamp and have a huge commitment to WordPress. All of their hosting plans are excellent choices for bloggers.
