Who I Use and Recommend
If you’re starting out and not sure where to start, get “Shared Hosting” from a high quality hosting provider. Here’s the one I recommend first: SiteGround.
WebsiteDoctor.com is hosted at SiteGround and they’ve been absolutely awesome. They’re based in the EU, and have some servers worldwide so are suitable for US customers too. They have great prices, services and support, a friendly control panel, and easy to use, free, SSL security certificates. Highly, highly recommended. Yes, that is an affiliate link and I’m happy to recommend them without reservation. They will migrate your website for free, and without hassle (they do around 100 website migrations per day).
I also recommend Blacknight (also based in the EU). They are Ireland’s #1 host. They have great support, and are based on the east coast of Ireland, and as far as I know, they are the only Irish-owned hosting company who have their own datacentre. They follow technology closely, staying up to date with new developments, and are a solid, reliable choice for Irish businesses.
