Getting web hosting

Getting web hosting

A critical decision you will make is where to host your website. There’s lots of options for web hosting and each comes with it’s own set of features.

If you don’t have a domain name yet, you should take a look at Securing your domain name.


Where should I host my website?

The short answer is to use Namecheap.  Why?  Namecheap has great, cheap, no-nonsense hosting that we’ve never had a problem with. They provide the standard cPanel interface that many web hosts use, and they have Scriptaculous as a part of it, that makes installing WordPress a breeze. It hosts this site and we use them in this tutorial. For the advanced and worrisome, WP Engine is an amazing solution, but it costs a bit more. However, it comes with a team of WordPress experts that make sure your website stays out of harm’s way, and gives you the best one-click backup and restore interface ever. So Namecheap is a great choice but WP Engine specializes in WordPress websites.

What type of web hosting does my startup’s site need?

Most likely all you will need is a basic shared hosting account that says it’s compatible with WordPress for your web hosting.  Here is an example from Namecheap of what you can get for less than a few dollars per month:

As long as you pick a well-reviewed web host that supports WordPress you shouldn’t have too many issues. Later you may decide to do things like use a CDN for faster content delivery, a dedicated IP address to prevent spam from another site on the same server impacting you, and an SSL certificate to take online payments or encrypt sensitive information. You’ve seen our advice for getting web hosting but we would be surprised if you found one that didn’t offer these features. In the end, choose web hosting the works best for you and make sure it has what you need moving forward.

Now that you’re all finished getting web hosting, it’s time to move on to Installing WordPress with Softaculous.
