I have been using Go daddy for a while now and I need to change to a much cheaper web hosting company. Which is more effective without downtime issues even with less pricing. I have read about Namecheap though. Which will you recommend? or will you recommend me other platforms which offer a cheaper web hosting? or I should stay on Godaddy?

As long as you are not hosting any business-critical programs/websites/applications, it sounds like you should go for the cheaper hosting. Check the Web Hosting Marketplace section on this forum and you'll surely find some discounted offers.

I guess you're right, most of them saying that shared hosting is the cheapest hosting among them all. If I want to save much more money; Do you think it is recommendable to acquire shared hosting? Hope I find the best ones.

Do you think it is recommendable to acquire shared hosting?
Yes it is always recommended for newbies and new websites because shared hosting is cheap and you can use it immediately after purchased without requiring configurations like VPS or dedicated servers.

You only consider VPS or dedicated servers when your website has high traffic and requiring higher resource to run. That's all.

You can check this link https://forumweb.hosting/marketplace/categories/shared-hosting-offers.11/ for offers and may have to compare and discuss the the respective hosting company support to come to a decision. Make sure you make a list of things which is your main concerns like how much disk is needed now and for future growth, how much extra you may have to pay for the same amount, what all extra features and services you will be getting in the new hosting if you moved and so on. So make a list of features and resources which you are concerned and compare the same from a list of choosen from that link.

There are few things you need to consider if you want a cheap yet constant host.

1. Go through shared hosting offers and pick few based on your budget and hosting resource requirements
2. Check review for each hosts that you have shortlisted
3. From this short list, check about company, how many years they are operating, hosting location and whatever you can check to know about the company credibility.
4. Make a final list, contact their pre-sales team and see what all they can do for a problem free account migration from your existing host.
5. Based on the pre-sales team feedback, its the time to decide your host.

Side note:- If you can mention your budget, someone around can bring in few suggestions for you.

I will keep this in mind, I guess this should be my requirement when choosing the right web hosting for me. The one that fits on my budget, the one that cheap but have a high quality, the one that suits for my taste. I can decide more better now than before!

What is your budget, and what kind of resources are you using with your website?
This will determine what hosts will suit you.

Remember if you want all bells and whistles, then you need the budget to back it up. With cheap hosting you may soon figure out why they charge as low as they do.
Also larger companies doesn't necessarily mean better service.

When you talk about the cheapest hosting, it also depends on the resources you need to consume.
You might be looking for the cheapest shared server or a cheap dedicated cloud hosting.
If you would not want any other website sharing the server resources with you, go for dedicated servers. In fact, finding cheap dedicated servers is not tough nowadays.

It is a battle decision between shared hosting and a dedicated servers, I guess dedicated servers are for personal use or one company use only while shared hosting is only recommendable on those shared partners, am I right? Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks @vashishtha_serverguy. Cheers!

I think you've got the wrong end of the stick. There's nothing in your request that hinted as why you would need a dedicated server.
What service you need (shared,VPS, dedicated) depends on your resource requirements and what type of website your running.

For eg, if you want to run a site that hosts videos and has heavy traffic you need a dedicated server. If you run a blog with little resource requirements then a shared hosting is perfect.

That's why I asked you what your current usage and type of website it is. Without that info hard to suggest anything relevant.

A shared hosting would be ideal. No sense in going for anything more. You can always upgrade later.

In choosing a shared host I would suggest one that offers cpanel, as it would make your life easy if and when you need to migrate.

If your blogs are wordpress, I would strongly recommend a host with litespeed web server, as it will help with site load time a lot.

Have a look to see what is available in the advertising section for offers of hosting. Try contacting the hosts to see how helpful they are, and if they meet your needs.
I would suggest getting one with a trial pricing or money back guarantee and test it for a month and see how well it performs. If it's good, stay, if not find another.
Good luck in your search

I also think a shared hosting plan would be good for you. With some hosts, you can easily upgrade or downgrade your plan, so there’s nothing to worry about. What platform is your website built on? There are web hosting plans optimized for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Magento-built websites and some of them come at a very affordable price (somewhere between $2-10/mo, depending on the features that you need). But, don’t focus only on the price. You should choose a hosting plan that combines a variety of great features, which may help your website grow and become faster. You may write down all of the requirements you can think of, then, set up a budget and then search for hosts that best suit your needs. You may read reviews or contact directly the hosts to learn more about their services so you can decide more easily which company to choose. Also, make sure that you’re aware of any additional fees (if there are any, of course). You may check the ‘’shared hosting offers ‘’ (https://forumweb.hosting/marketplace/categories/shared-hosting-offers.11/) as other members here mentioned, and you may take a look at the ‘’best web hosting’’ section as well (https://forumweb.hosting/top-quality-best-web-hosting/) I hope you’ll be able to find a reliable host really soon :)

You should avoid those big corporations, price is always high and the service level is bad. They usually use apache instead of litespeed, they don't use cloudlinux and cPanel. They use old technologies.

It is not hard to find cheap web hosting services on this forum, I can tell you some as follows
https://forumweb.hosting/marketplace/singapore-linux-business-hosting-2-99-month.1585/
https://forumweb.hosting/marketplac...-month-cheapest-but-reliable-fast-1gbps.1582/
https://forumweb.hosting/marketplac...month-cloudlinux-lite-speed-softaculous.1580/
https://forumweb.hosting/marketplac...lans-free-domain-ssl-cpanel-softaculous.1591/

The rest to have a quality web hosting with cheap price is depends on you, you need to check their server specs, features, support and read reviews around on the forum about them before deciding to make a purchase.

Hope it helps!

DigitalOcean, Vultr, and Linode are good options if you are looking for an economical web hosting providers. They have a pricing plan which is $5 per month.
