Looking for a WordPress Website Host?
We’ve got 4 tips to help you get started.
It can be overwhelming to select a web host because there are literally hundreds to choose from. However, there are only a few that are optimized for WordPress hosting, have excellent support, top-notch security and outstanding performance, all at a great price.
From our own personal experience combined with hours of support forum research, we’ve had the opportunity to analyze and test out many different hosts. Here you’ll find a quick list of the most important aspects we believe one needs to consider when selecting the best WordPress web host.
#1 WordPress Compatibility
When looking for a host for your WordPress website, you must first make sure that the host is 100% WordPress compatible. WordPress has minimum requirements for hosts to attain. From the most current versions of database software to increased security features, your new host needs to do more than meet those minimum requirements, they need to exceed them.
#2 The Service & Support You Require
Your website never closes, so your host shouldn’t either. Quality support means your host will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year. A great host will also guarantee 99.9% uptime, keeping your online storefront ALWAYS OPEN.
#3 Ease of Use & Flexibility
Wether you’re a seasoned pro or just getting started, your host needs to offer simple, straight forward accessibility to their backend control panel. Additionally, your hosting package should offer flexibility for your online needs. Make sure your host offers unlimited sub domains, back-up services, FTP accounts, and plenty of email accounts. As your online business expands, you want your host to be one step ahead.
#4 The Best Value
A great price doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your expectations of performance in a host. Striking the right balance of cost, support, security, and flexibility for your WordPress hosting is key.
