You may look for a host which uses solid-state drives, as they are faster and more reliable than traditional hard drives. You may take a look at the web hosting plans by BGOcloud to see if they match your needs. How much disk space do you need in fact? Also, this host includes CloudFlare CDN in its plans - it improves website's speed and performance. Also, one more question - have you optimized your site - for example, have you reduced the size of your images, the number of plugins, do you use Gzip compression, have you reduced redirects, etc. ?
the major difference between varied hostings is managed and self-managed.
Managed hosting: like Bluehost/Hostgator
Pros: they take care of everything
Cons: Pricy and limited control over server resources.
Self-managed hosting: like Vultr/Linode/DO
Pros: quite affordable price and full control over the server resources
Cons: you're all on your own.
Since speed and low price are the things you are pursuing, here is a solution for you:
Buy a start server plan from Vultr/Linode/Do, you will get 1 GB RAM, 20-25GB storage, and 1TB bandwidth from a start plan from them that costs $5/mon, which are more than sufficient for the installtion of a wordpress site. Manage the server with the free VPSrobots, as described here: https://vpsrobots.com/documents/how-to- ... obots.html
Also, make sure the server location(database center) you choose is not too far from your target clients, this would also give a boost in speed(decrease load time).
If you are looking to host a website like wordpress, then choose plan like WordPress Hosting. SSD hositng plans are good too. Also there have some cons in theese types of hosting. For example in Wordpress hosting you can't create email acconts and you can't host more sites like Joomla or something like that.
