Inna, it all depends on how techie you are. I had my site designed and hosted by Real Estate Webmasters. They do really good work. They have the Barbara Corcoran seal of approval!

There realy is not a best. Several will suffice though. Go daddy is ok for domain names, but not that good for hosting. HG went downhill after being bought up by EIG, but they are moving back, and should improve. Siteground is good, A2 is good, and asmallorange is good. wpengine was good most of the time and probably is still as good as HG, pagely is good. Of course it depends on what type of hosting you purchase, so result will vary a little.

What does 'best' mean to you? I am curently using godaddy and it is fine although I've had developers complain about it.

I've only ever used Hostgator. The servers have only been down once while I've been with them and their tech support is very knowledgeable. Also, if speed really matters to you, their servers have pretty low network latency, although the benefit there is marginal. The most important thing to you for a real estate website is going to be price, which is why I chose HG.
Howdy neighbor! I use GoDaddy and have since 2001 for multiple websites, in and out of Real Estate. I have never had an issue with GD and I find myself quite pleased with my Wordpress site that they are hosting. Good service, quick response times on service calls and good security for the sites!
It all depends how is your site built. If you are using something like wordpress would be completely different than custom created one in php or java .
I use godaddy, but Katerina Gasset says Bluehost.
I had Wordpress sites hosted on GoDaddy for years and years and love that they are truly 24/7 for anything you ever need.
Just moved all my domains to a new service which is much easier for me to use versus Wordpress. I kept adding functionality and it was making the site load in 5-7 seconds which is waaaaaaay too slow!
The new sites are built on Wordpress, but they are engineered to do what they do, and do very well!
I use hostgator. I don't think it matters too much who you use. Here's a link to my site. The Flooring Girl
I use Webhostinghub.com because they offer 24/7 support and their support is located in the US so I dont have bad call connections and I usually get any issues resolved quickly.
Endurance International Group is one of a few big companies that own most of the web hosting services you hear about. These big aggregators don’t always have the best reputation.
One question would be are you going to do a WordPress site or what?
We use placester and yolasite.
We use placester, it works, but not the best.
I think there are several good ones and it depends on what you want them to do and how you wnat them to respond.
What is your criteria for "best"?
Good Thursday morning Inna. I use GoDaddy and my WordPress website. I need to work more on the website.
