You should give enough thought to the right web hosting before starting the project, since moving from one host to another, especially with somewhat larger websites, is quite a hassle demanding and also time consuming action can be.
You not only have to transfer your WordPress installation, but also all files stored there, databases set up and all e-mails.
Therefore, you should take your time when looking for the right web host and when making a decision not just look at the price. A supposedly cheaper offer can turn out to be the more expensive one over time: for example, if you have to buy supposed extras that are included in the competing offer.
We ourselves have been hosting our projects with the well-known web host for more than 16 years all-inkl.com. We are very satisfied with this provider and can recommend him unreservedly. To be fair, all-inkl.com is not the only good web host for WordPress projects. Through working on various customer projects, I have had the experience of both HostEurope as well as domainfactory cut a fine figure.
There are now web hosts that focus on WordPress specialized to have. One of these providers, which I was allowed to test is Raid boxes from Germany.
What should you pay attention to when choosing WordPress web hosting?
First of all, you should make sure that the web host meets the official recommendations from the WordPress developers. At the moment (WordPress 5.3) the server should bring the following:
- PHP from version 7.3
- MySQL version 5.6 or higher or MariaDB version 10.1 or higher
- HTTPS support
mod_rewriteon the web server
If the web host cannot meet these requirements, I would recommend looking for another provider. Furthermore, it would be important that the memory limit for PHP applications is at least 96 or even better 128 MB. This ensures that even extensive WordPress installations with many plugins run without any problems.
