    I'm using Digital Ocean and must say that it's really good hosting I've ever tried

    Digital Ocean is a great pick for WordPress sites and more due to their insanely fast droplet creator. Simply pick that you're creating a WP site and bam - it's done. Besides from that, you can also setup droplets in any way, so you have full control over the file base and such.

    WPEngine is about the gold standard here, and they have a very good migration plugin in the wordpress store. "Tight budget" doesnt really define a dollar amount. If you can afford them, use them. If you are talking under 20/mo, I used hawkhost before when I didnt have the time to move accounts around. They are about the only one I can think of in the "cheap, but good customer service" category. Im not sure if they still migrate accounts, if you are on cpanel, then prolly.

  4. I'm using siteground now and their customer service is incredible. It's chat based with no wait time. I'm a beginner and have chatted with them for hours and they don't mind. They will also proactively take steps to optimize your site, walk you through exactly what changes they made, recommend products and explain why....I could go on and on. Definitely recommend

    Cloudways

    A managed cloud hosting platform for developers & designers

    Ross RojekCTO, GoLocalApps.com, Apptoolkit.io · Written
    Use this for a number of sites. You can pick your actual host (I use digital ocean), and spin up (or down) a new server any time. Cloudways makes it easy to manage digital ocean without needing to know command line. Online support is great launching a new site is dead simple.

    Hosting w/ cpanel & softaculous (unlimited bandwidth, emails, etc), easy to install Wordpress on it and get up and running. $5 / mo, +$1 / mo for a dedicated IP. Use code "1cent" to pay $0.01 for your first month! Also, they have VPN's and dedicated servers at remarkably low prices.

    Simple, cheap and lots of features. It's around $5 per site for the base plan which is very affordable to me. They also don't have any restriction on the plans besides visitors and bill at the end of the month.

    Our development agency have saved so much money and time moving a portion of our thousands of client WP sites to these guys for testing over the last month. Main feature we cared about was that they provide unlimited storage + bandwidth + ram + cpu! Only charge is for unique visitors, so if we host a clients site and it's popular it gets charged more, if its barely visited we don't get charged much. This removes the need we had to constantly scale up and down the sites for our clients so they have been an absolute huge money and time saver! Can't recommend enough.
