    This is not a recommendation as I have not used them, but does anyone have thoughts on one of the lifetime services? The idea of paying once is attractive and their 12 site plan would cover my intentions, but not familiar with company at all. They do include LetsEncrypt

    Google "network solutions" "namepros" or use namepros search, there are not one (unfortunately) instructive reads that could save you some hardcore headache.

    Read the first comment please. They are great, but renewals are a nightmare, (unless you haven't secured a few years of hosting upfront for a good price, like me.)

    Agree with you!

    I will go through the comments.

    Yes, secured for 3 years and will definitely have to migrate to something cheaper after that :)

    Thanks for the correction, I couldn't find any source that would back that up. Will create a new chart with new services, and will correct that too.

    with $200, I would rent a dedicated or vps. But you need to know how manage a server. You can rent managed vps for around $40 per month at knownhost. Unmanaged servers are cheaper. Check web hosting forums for offers. With that budget I would stay from shared hosting. They give very low resources to each cpanel account. However some shared hostings give some dedicated resources for extra $$ like hawkhost. You can try those to avoid server management. It's too complicated if you know nothing about it.

    I should clarify, my budget is per year. Otherwise I wouldn't leave Siteground.

    I recommend that you avoid Hostgator.
    You might give a2hosting a look.

    I personally use BlueHost, never had an issue, fast support times, quick to deploy new sites. They're my go-to for recommending. They're also one of the biggest names in hosting.

    I believe the analogy was with Endurance International (and subsidiaries), not with A2hosting.

    That makes sense, Hostgator is in that group. I ran away from them, support was a nightmare - I ask one question, they answer another, similar to GD support. Nothing worked properly. It may be good for basic use though.

    $200 /year = $15 /month is still enough to rent an unmanaged kvm/cloud vps or shared hosting with dedicated resources or you can buy a reseller hosting package for $200 /year. Sometimes reseller hosting performs better especially if you have sites with different scripts, in other words if all of your sites are not wp. Because you can create separate cpanel account for each of your sites or each group of sites (e.g., combining all wp sites in 1 cpanel account, all drupal sites in another cpanel account)

    Went with HostPapa's premium for 3 years. So far so good.

    If you have experience with hosting management, you can have a look at the DIY hostings like Linode/DO/Vultr + a paid or free control panel like cPanel or VPSrobots depends on your experience and needs. The best things about the combo are the dadicated server resources for your sites and fairly affordable price that you're after.
