Just for your reference, if you want a cost-effective web hosting service, you might want to consider Bluehost's Shared Hosting plans. Most especially, if you sign up for Bluehost web-hosting service by clicking the following banner, you can use it starting from USD2.95/month (with 1 dollar off per month).

I will get some commission when you sign up for a web-hosting service by clicking on the links in this post. However, I do not suggest specific service just for commission; I have been running and managing WordPress websites from several web hosting companies including SG and BH for more than 6 years. If you are looking for a web hosting service with cheap but relatively good resources, Bluehost's Shared Hosting will be a good option to consider.
