Textpattern runs on virtually any contemporary web hosting product you throw at it as long as the minimum system requirements are matched.

Nevertheless, searching for a competent and customer-oriented web host may become quite a chore, and experiences at times serve to prove the proverbial “Reliable, fast, cheap: Pick any two”. So we rather refrain from endorsing any particular hosting company and encourage you to judge for yourself, based on you own criteria and preferences.

Feel free to peruse the short list of web hosting vendors below who claim to cater for Textpattern users as a starting point, or hop over to the Textpattern community forum to gather additional advice from seasoned users.
