      Hi Esther, there are some differences between different hostings, for example from what I understand HostGator doesn’t allow 3rd party SSL certificates, so you need to buy from them.

      If you have a bit more budget then https://www.siteground.com/ is great option, they seem to be one of the fastest.
      On other hand, if you are on budget then https://www.godaddy.com/ is an option.
      Here is a nice article about choosing a hosting that is right for you: https://www.whoishostingthis.com/compare/
