HOSTING PROVIDER OPTIONS
TOP CHOICE FOR NEWBIES
If this is your first blog, Bluehost is the perfect first step. More on why below.

For intermediate bloggers I recommend the hosting provider I use, SiteGround.
TOP CHOICE FOR PRO BLOGGERS
If you plan to start a "Traffic blog" you're going to need a premium hosting provider. The low-cost shared server plans just aren't going to cut it. While most hosts claim to handle unlimited traffic, too many users visiting your blog at once will cause you to go past their "server load" limits.
For high-traffic blogs I recommend going with WP Engine.
