I am starting my WooCommerce online store, I have bought a domain name but the problem is I am confused about hosting because there are many hosting providers available on the internet.
Can anyone help me to find a good WooCommerce hosting provider?
Here are my WooCommerce hosting requirements:
Free Backup Free Cache RAM : 2GB Processor: 1 Core Bandwidth: 2TB
My budget is upto $25 per month.WordPress Hosting hosting
When looking for reliable WooCommerce hosting there are a number of factors that you need to consider.
Ensure you are aware of your store's requirements and understand what you need. This is not always clear cut but it is generally estimated with the kind of plugins you will be running and the amount of traffic you anticipate. If you will be using plugins that run almost constantly, updating and/or synchronizing your site information, pricing, stock constantly for 100's or 1000's of items shared hosting might not be for you. If you also expect a lot of concurrent visitors you may want to consider getting a VPS or a Dedicated Server with sufficient bandwidth and resources such as memory and CPU.
Know your requirements. You have mentioned your requirements and you know what you are looking for. However, you also need to know if your provider also allows you to upgrade or downgrade the service you purchase. This allows you to make adjustments just in case you purchased a plan that has more resources than what you thought you require or needs more resources than that which you require. It is also worth noting that some hosting solution providers such as 1onlinehost allow you to purchase additional e.g. storage, RAM, IP and the like depending on a plan you choose to use.
Reliability and control panel. You may notice that not all webhosts use the same control panel, control panel being where you are able to access your domains, subdomains, created emails, databases and web files, other that how you'd access them through the normal wp-admin page. Some may choose to use their own control panel and some use common control panels. Control panels most importantly need to be simple to use and feature packed such as traffic filters and protection. Your control panel is key as some show you your average resource usage and keep you aware if you are still within the limits of your hosting i.e, CPU usage, Memory usage, Montly data transfer used up (e.g. 500MB of 2TB used), Storage Usage. An example comparison can be found here between a common panel and an in-house control panel. The reliability of servers you are looking to acquire are generally mentioned by web hosting providers with reliable hosting.
Support. Professional support is critical when your site is having problems and a web hosting provider whose support is a call away or a chat away is great when you are in need of it. When facing issues with your site and need assistance professional support is critical as it keeps your sites uptime and availability high. Technical support is critical and needs a lot of consideration.
Backup. A backup of your site is important and this is offered by some webhosting providers by default when choosing a shared hosting plan with free daily backups, this is however not always the case and may be provided as an addition to your hosting. VPS and Dedicated servers may also offer backup services as an add-on feature and you get to choose how much storage space you need for your backups. It is worth noting that backups are not always full backups but incremental backups thus you may find that a perceived "small" storage backup for your VPS or dedicated plan is sufficient as it only makes daily or weekly backups of changes made which saves on a lot of storage space and thus saving you the costs for additional storage space for full backups.
Terms of service. A hosting provider provides terms that you need to agree to as you acquire your hosting. These terms are sometimes simplified for easier understanding and or have main points highlighted to assist you get the main point of a point in the terms of service. For example, some hosting providers don't encourage mining on their servers such as on a VPS and would thus have your account on hold or even blocked if this is detected or run scripts that keep the CPU(s) at constant 100% 24/7. This is important as it will inform you on whether what you are looking to do with your hosting needs shared, semi-dedicated server, VPS, dedicated server.
Honestly speaking, there are a lot of options on the market. What I can recommend from my own experience, trust companies and providers with real reviews and at least 5+ years lifetime. From my own, I can recommend fastcomet.com, which is the best solution for WP in terms quality/price. Additionally, there are prebuilt tools and manuals how optimise your WP site on the server. Recommended!
