We’ve used a number of different hosts over the years, all with strengths and weaknesses.
Our preferred host for a WordPress website is SiteGround who themselves are recommended by WordPress.
We’ve rolled out numerous sites with SiteGround and found found them excellent in terms of performance and we’ve also found their 24 hour technical support encouraging too.
For most typical WordPress sites, we’d recommend you consider the GrowBig option which is on offer at the moment though typically £9.99 per month.

- Free SSL Encryption Options (I’ll send you further details of why this is important later in the week)
