Recommended Web Hosting for Divi Theme
In this article I will try to briefly review the web hosting provider that I’m using to host my Divi websites. I think there is no best hosting for Divi theme, but I will tell you which one is the best one for me.
First I’d like to mention that there are also “managed” WordPress hosting companies like e.g. Page.ly or WPengine.com. Managed WordPress web hosting providers like these automatically update your WordPress version for you, your theme(s) and plugin(s). They are also optimized for WordPress. However, I have heard that e.g. WPengine disables your caching plugin if you install it on your WordPress website. Another disadvantage of managed WordPress hosting is that it is quite expensive. For example Pagely plans start at $99/mo.
So because of these disadvantages I prefer shared hosting providers. I do not mind updating my WP installation, my theme and plugins manually in my WP admin panel. I just log into my WP admin panel once a week to see if there are any new updates.
And if you are curious which shared hosting provider I use, it is SiteGround. Their plans start at just $3.95 per month. I have been with them for 7 years now and am satisfied with them. I’m hosting with them most of my Divi-powered websites on one hosting account without any problems. Also, they are the #1 recommended hosting company for WordPress by the official WordPress website wordpress.org.
So the final decision is up to you. However, if you are just starting out and are on a low-budget, I would recommend going with a shared hosting provider like SiteGround and if your website grows to a really big one over time, you can always upgrade to a VPS or a dedicated server later.
