The WordPress hosting service plays an important role in the website performance. This is why we are starting with the server in our Week of Speed. The good hosting provider will take the extra measures to optimize and secure your website. If you are not technical expert and choosing hosting service for your WordPress website looks like an impossible task, don’t worry and look for a web host that have:
- WordPress optimized environment
- Support for PHP 7+ version
- User friendly control panel
- Friendly and well-versed in the details of WordPress technical support
- Free daily backups (believe us, this is a very important feature)
- Completely SSD based host, no hybrid storage, no SATA, only complete SSD storage
When starting out or even with developed website with medium traffic, a shared hosting solution might seem like the right choice. If you have already built website with many daily visitors and you are performing marketing campaigns, it is expected to have more traffic. In this case a private solution like Virtual Private Server (VPS) or Dedicated Server (DS) might be the right choice for you. The stress of your website going down after a big campaign is big and could cause you early gray hairs and more important to lose the expected income from the whole campaign. Don’t be a victim, invest in proper hosting with good support.
We are not affiliated with any hosting provider but when it comes to WordPress there are few hosting providers specializing only in WordPress hosting. These are:
Good idea is to check web hosting reviews for each host that you consider to use. The real client reviews are more reliable than the ad campaign that the hosting provider is running.
Last but not least, be sure that the hosting provider you choose have top notch customer support, which is a must when it comes to hosting.
If you are not a web hosting guru this is sufficient information to find good hosting provider for your WordPress website, this is why we will not dig further into this vast subject.
