WordPress Hosting Recommendation Sought

X
Hello,
If you're running a WP site and are happy with your hosting, would you recommend it?
For years, I've been with Sonic.net, but this morning I had a call with tech support that
leaves me with no other option but move on. (They were unable to restore from last
night's backup after 2 hours of trying, in case you're curious.)
Many thanks in advance,
-Igor.

If this is for your business site, I'd recommend http://Pantheon.io hands down. I've only hosted Drupal with them, but they specialize only in Drupal and Wordpress. They give you a sandbox installation before going live, and excellent support. They also offer plenty of security options.

You're probably going to get a ton of responses on this post, but I've been very happy with MediaTemple (going on nearly 10 years). Yes, I know they are (now) owned by GoDaddy, but they've always provided awesome customer service and the sites we host there are very responsive. A lot of people recommend Bluehost but honestly I don't get it--I've tried them and found their tools to be confusing and had a bad customer service experience. Recently we used http://www.cloudways.com/en/ on a project and were also very happy with their service, customer service and ease of use. I hope this helps.

If you have a business based around a WP site where speed, stability, security, backups, etc. are crucial, WPEngine is a great hosting company specializing specifically in WP Hosting.

I've been using GoDaddy and have been happy with them. Be sure to ask about what products are available and which ones you're signing up with...I believe "managed wordpress" account keeps daily backup for upto 30 days.
