From a past bitter experience don't touch anything unless it has unlimited bandwidth or at least auto-shuts off if the limit is reached. I had a site that got caught by a maliciouss attack I didn't spot for 24 hrs or so and cost an extra £1K.

I have hosted my site with 1&1 Ionos for ages. They offer a good range of packages. Most offer WordPress hosting and SSL certificate. Not had any problems with them. No bandwidth restrictions and will act as domain name registrar if you require. My site - Jouneyman's Workshop - so you can judge speed etc.

I can't speak for their web hosting but I have used 1&1 for years for email and have found them excellent.

Just keep a look out for their sneaky marketing plans. Our club got caught a few years ago by a 'free' upgrade that next year was 'assumed' to be our new required selection, plus they billed the nearly double price in 6 month instalments so the massive hike wouldn't be spotted.

I use HostPaPa for three websites - my own and two club ones. Never had any problems with them. Unlimited bandwidth etc. and various packages to suit how much storage capacity you need.

I have built and occasioanly maintain the web site for my brothers tool hire shop, using MySql and PHP. It's hosted with "Unlimited Web Hosting". They have given us good customer support when needed, which thankfully has not been very often.

My site is a wordpress one & they made it dead easy to start up
