InMotion Hosting
InMotion has been great for us! I have contacted their customer support on a few occasions and all my questions were answered and very timely.

Previously we used BlueHost, which had us on a blacklisted shared IP address (most likely due to someone else on the IP doing questionable things). This prevented us from using many plugins, some including Google Analytics. Upon contacting BlueHost they REFUSED to move us to an unblacklisted IP, even after validating the IP was blacklisted in numerous locations. Instead, they tried to upsell us on a dedicated IP. InMotion tracks the usage on IP addresses, and if for some reason, one is blacklisted, they will move you. They also offered free site migration from BlueHost. We don’t regret this move at all.

JPEGmini
Photo size can really slow down site speed. Running photos through this will optimize them for web. It has a web interface, as well as one for Lightroom.

WP Rocket
We use this for caching (helps load speed) and file minimazation. It also gives you the ability to lazy load images per page (helps with speed as well).
