News flash: Dreamhost has a sale going on right now! That might not be big news, because Dreamhost often has specials. Their WordPress hosting is fast, reasonably priced even without a special, and includes automatic installation.
Dreamhost offers managed hosting on virtual private servers, with separate MySQL database hosting for maximum security. You’ll have a C-Panel as well as your WP admin area and auto-scaling RAM. SSL certificates are available.
24/7 support and unlimited email are nice touches, too.
You can also register your domains with Dreamhost, to keep everything in one place, and there are cloud storage plans available. This is a hosting company that will grow with you.
