Here you are going to check the top 8 Web Hostings for Divi Theme. We are not going to basic questions like what Hosting is and what you should look into hosting while buying because I hope you are already well aware of Hosting.

Actually, designing and developing websites at WordPress by Divi is not enough for your business. You need to optimize your website.

Divi Hosting

Divi provides something special in case of choosing the best Host for your websites. Actually, creating a website and publish it is only not a way to rank it and provide a better user experience.

You need to choose the best Hosting Provider which enables your website to load fast and provide a better user experience. If your website is not loaded within 2 seconds on mobile then it is something alarming to you. And, in Page Speed Optimization a good hosting matters a lot.

Divi does not provide its own hosting but has partnered with some hostings to provide a custom package for Divi users which only fulfills the needs of Divi Requirements.

Here below is the list of 3 Hosting Providers which are recommended by Elegant Themes for Divi theme.

  • SiteGround
  • FlyWheel
  • Pressable

Why choose Divi Recommended Hosting?

You might have experienced a lag in Divi Builder loading it is not a Divi issue. You need to change your Host if you face any issue in loading the Divi Builder or if your website is taking a long to load. Elegant Themes knows very well that what is going to work and what is not. So, Those special and custom package for Divi are the best choices.

Now let’s move to our recommendation and Hosting details.

Best Divi Hosting 2021

Here is the list of best Web Hosting Providers for Divi as of 2020 and also includes the Divi’s Recommended Hosting by Elegant Theme,

  1. Siteground
  2. Cloudways
  3. FlyWheels
  4. A2 Hosting
  5. WP Engine
  6. DreamHost
  7. InMotion
  8. Kinsta

#1: SiteGround

Of course, SiteGround has been mentioned as a top Web Hosting for Small Businesses and Websites having a low number of visitors. It is the best-managed WordPress hosting provider.

SiteGround is on the top of the list because it provides Quality Hosting service starting at just $6.69/Month. According to a poll, created on Facebook, SiteGround was the only one on top of the list from which people felt happy.

And, we personally tested SiteGround with StartUp plan ($6.99/Month) and got the following results,

  • Theme Used: Divi
  • Load Time: 1.346 S
  • Time to First Byte: 0.481 s
  • Starting Price: $6.99/Month

So, if you are having small Business Websites, having 20,000-60,000 visitors per month then obviously SiteGround is your way to go.

#2: Cloudways

Cloudways is our recommendation if you manage a large business website and it works very well with Divi. If your website is built with Divi and you want something amazing to improve page load time, obviously we will recommend you CloudWays Hosting.

As we shared above a poll held on Facebook, SiteGround is rated as the No. 1 hosting service provider, and CloudWays gets the 2nd number. But, we want to say that CloudWays is number 1. You do not need to pay for the package, you need to pay for resources that you use.

You need to select a cloud server and then you will be billed according to the resources you used for the whole of the month. Below is the list of Cloud Data Centers available at CloudWays,

  1. DigitalOcean
  2. Vultr
  3. Linode
  4. AWS
  5. Google Clouds

And, here is our results got by an experiment done with DigitalOcean Server ($10/month) with Divi Theme,

  • Theme Used: Divi
  • Load Time: 1.118 s
  • Time to First Byte: 0.113 s
  • Starting Price: $10/Month

#3: Flywheel

Do you know Flywheel is on the list of Divi’s recommended hosting providers? Flywheel provides everything that Divi needs because it is Divi recommended to use Flywheel for better page speed and good load time.

Like Kinsta, Flywheel uses Google Cloud Platform’s infrastructure to power all of its plans. And, here below are the results that we got while testing Flywheel Tiny ($15/month)

  • Theme Used: Divi
  • Load Time: 1.429 s
  • Time to First Byte: 0.061 s
  • Starting Price: $15/Month

#4: A2 Hosting

A2 Hosting is not on the list of Divi’s recommended hosting but still it is a good option to consider because of its high performance and managed-price plans.

It is as low as $8.99/Month and provides the best services to its customers. Although it is not on the list of Divi’s Recommendations still A2 Hosting has a dedicated service for Divi Builder and claims to provide the best experience to Divi users.

After using the A2 Hosting Startup plan ($8.99/month) this is what we got while experimenting

  • Theme Used: Divi
  • Load Time: 1.689 s
  • Time to First Byte: 2.031 s
  • Starting Price: $8.99/Month (Starting as $2.99/Month)

#5: WP Engine

You know Flywheel is Divi’s recommendation and Flywheel was acquired by Wp Engine back in 2019. But, still, both work separately but WP Engine is our recommendation if you want something providing many features without having much care of the budget.

It is something costly as $30/Month as a starter plan for the business which is quite beginners and has a very low number of visitors.

Here below are the results of an experiment done with the Divi theme using WP Engine

  • Theme Used: Divi
  • Load Time: 1.536 s
  • Time to First Byte: 0.115 s
  • Starting Price: $30

#6: DreamHost

Do you want high performance with low pricing? Well, DreamHost is for you, you will get a shared WordPress Hosting plan for $2.59/Month if select 3 years tier.

Is not it crazy? You might think that why its performance will be good if so cheap. The answer is simple, check the CNN Web Hosting Review. DreamHost is listed as the #1 hosting provider by CNN for 2020. So, performance will not be compromised even at a low price.

Here are our experimental results after testing with Divi Theme,

  • Theme Used: Divi
  • Load Time: 1.892 s
  • Time to First Byte: 0.482s
  • Starting Price: $2.59/Month

#7 InMotion Hosting

InMotion Hosting is very known as a budget hosting provider and also on the list of top hosting providers with affordable pricing plans.

Like you are going to get the best performance services for your Divi Website. With the Lite Shared Hosting plan you are going to get at $7.49/month. Although, performance can be better more and it should be but still it is low-priced hosting.

  • Theme Used: Divi
  • Load Time: 1.672 s
  • Time to First Byte: 0.186 s
  • Starting Month: $7.49/Month

#8 Kinsta

Kinsta is the best choice in the case of performance. The only reason to list it at the end is because of its high pricing plan. Surely, you will get the high-quality performance and blazing fast speed but need to pay $30 per month as a starter plan. So, people have choices to use hosting services for $2-8 per month and Kinsta provides a started plan of $30.

Testing Kinsta with Divi theme was amazing and here are the results of our experiment,

  • Load Time: 1.103 s
  • Time to First Byte: 0.079 s
  • Starting Price: $30/Month

Our Recommendation

If you are a quite new business or just a simple website launched having a low number of visitors then there are options for you like DreamHost, SiteGround, and A2 Hosting. For small websites and blogs, we will recommend one and only one DreamHost if you are tight on a budget ($2.59 per month) but if you can pay a bit more then go for the SiteGround Starter plan.

And, if you want something big like you have a large E-Commerce store or have a large number of visitors then go for Cloudways hosting service. It is our recommendation if you want cloud servers and fast speed.

Conclusion

If your Divi website is taking a long time to load fully or your Divi builder just crashes while loading then you need to change your Host. Of course, first, you need to do Optimization with your current Hosting and if you get good results then it is ok, no need to shift to any other hosting. But, sometimes your hosting conflicts with Divi and can not fulfill Divi’s requirements and in that case, you need to switch.
