Need some help deciding between these hosts & VPSes for my WordPress site!

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Hi again,

So I narrowed down my hosting choices to these. I was using a domain and hosting from NameCheap and had speed problems. While they did fix it, I still found it to be a bit slow, and I’d like to try a different host anyway (I’ll still use you as a registrar though, if you’re monitoring this!)

Some things that might be important to know, if they matter:

  • Most traffic will be from Canada (west)
  • Website will use a premium WordPress theme
  • There won’t be much traffic (sorry, can’t really provide an estimate)
  • Speed matters
  • Price sort of matters – preferrably less than $40 (I’ll be looking for coupons)

There’s obviously some variation in pricing, but I think at this point any of them would be a solid choice – what do you think, and why?

  • CrocWeb ($2.95)
  • HawkHost ($3.29)
  • StableHost ($3.95)
  • Site5 ($5.95)
  • MDDHosting ($6.38)
  • VeeroTech ($6.99)

I’ve also heard good things about DigitalOcean and RamNode.

They seem pretty cheap and they’re apparently very fast, but for what reasons would I choose one of these over regular shared hosting besides quick scaling? I also don’t have any experience managing a VPS, but if it isn’t difficult, I wouldn’t mind learning if it’s worth it.
