How do you choose a good hosting?
Hosting is one of the most important factors for a fast-running website. But when do you know when you have a good hosting for your WordPress website? That depends on a number of parts of the hosting. For example, there are different types of hosting types, prices, locations and ultimately quality and capacity of the servers.
Different types of hosting
You can go in many directions in terms of hosting, but the best known hosting types are: shared hosting, managed hosting and a special hosting for E-commerce. Which hosting applies to you depends on what kind of website you have and what you ultimately want to do with it.
The location of your web hosting is also a factor to take into account. You should consider who your users are when choosing a server location. For example, if you only focus on the Dutch market, it is better not to host your website or webshop on a server in America. Why not? Servers in America are far from The Netherlands and can work slower than servers in Europe. Ultimately, this can cause your website to be slower for the visitor in The Netherlands.
If you have users all over the world, you can always choose to add a CDN, content delivery network. This ensures that the WordPress website loads faster. In addition to a faster loading time, the CDN also ensures a better performing website. Are you interested in a CDN? We offer free CDN in our premium package, check out our packages here .
Cost of web hosting
For web hosting, there are different prices. You will probably think: “then I can just choose the cheapest web hosting.” The rule of thumb for choosing a web hosting should actually be: The higher the traffic on your website, the higher the cost of the web hosting.
Quality and capacity
Web hosting is your own piece of storage on a server where you can place your website and store your files, photos and other documents. The choice of hosting for your website depends on the functionalities of your WordPress website. The difference in the web hosting packages is mainly in the size of storage and use.
