Suggest some best web hosting companies in India

I am looking to move my blog from Blogger to Wordpress, self-hosted with my own domain name (which I haven't yet bought). Please could someone suggest where to start in looking for hosting? I tried Google but then found a post on here which said a lot of reviews are fake so thought it best to as you good people.
So, i want some suggestion for a good web host.

Self hosted to me means I put it on my own web server that I loaded up with some OS and web server software. Since this is self hosting, why would I shop for hosting services?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-hosting#Website_management

"A webmaster could choose to use either WordPress.com, which is a largely free service maintained by the company Automattic, or alternatively download the underlying WordPress software from WordPress.org. The latter option would enable the webmaster to install the WordPress software manually on his or her own private web server, whether that server is leased from a web hosting[6] provider or set up in house."

To date, self host has meant "I use my own server" and if the host is at some web host, it might be called "dedicated server." Which is why what you asked is confusing.
