We cannot talk about Envato Elements highly enough. To some it up, amazing digital assets at a very low $29 a month.

If creating your own website with WordPress is not your thing, then Enjin, Gamerlaunch and iClan Websites provide all the tools you need to make a great guild website. They also provide hosting. As we have said in our reviews you will still need a domain name and preferably some knowledge of HTML, CSS and JS to really make your website stand out.
Enjin is our favorite Guild Hosting Provider. With a ton of features, fast hosting and a thriving community of Gamers and Guilds Enjin is the powerhouse of Guild Hosting. We highly recommend them if you do not have the skillset to create a website yourself. Enjin is another one of our favorite guild resources.
iClan Websites is another Guild Hosting Provider that we have reviewed and along with Enjin, highly recommend. iClan has excellent pricing and features. They have everything you need to create a great guild website.
Gamerlaunch is the third Guild Hosting Provider we recommend. They have an excellent Tournament system and great pricing. While Enjin is our favorite you cannot go wrong with any of the three Guild Hosting Providers suggested here.
Bluehost is a hosting provider we have used on many websites throughout the years. They have excellent pricing, great website up-time, fast website speeds and above average support. If you are planning on using WordPress or any other CMS we encourage you to check them out.
Like Bluehost, Siteground is another highly recommended website hosting provider. Support, pricing, up-time and pricing are all excellent. Whether you choose Siteground or Bluehost we firmly believe you wont be disappointed
If lightning fast website speeds are important to you, then WPengine is designed specifically for WordPress websites and boasts excellent up-time and speeds. They are slightly more expensive than Bluehost or Siteground but if you want to go the extra mile then WPengine should be your go to.
