I often get asked for recommendations on which hosting company to choose to host a Magento site. If you want your Magento site to run smoothly and to load fast, you will need a Magento Optimized Hosting service.
There are a lot of choices out there when looking for a hosting company which is optimized for Magento. I didn’t test them all but I did test a few and I’ve had the best experience with Nexcess Magento Hosting so I can definitely recommend them. They have plans starting at $24.95/mth and their most basic plan would fit the bill for most projects.
