No matter how much traffic you get, your site needs to stay online and load fast to keep visitors engaged. Our next-gen cloud tech with advanced server caching and optimizations make your WordPress site crazy fast so you never have to worry about traffic spikes slowing you down again.
I’m sorry to hear you’ve been having such an unpleasant experience. I’ve had some bad experiences myself, so I understand the importance of having something you can just “set and forget”. If you do decide to move to a new host, I wish you a smooth transition.
Award-winning support. There’s 24/7/365 premium support via phone, live chat, and email. Also, there are automatic weekly off-site data backups, constant server monitoring, and online support portal with over 500 video tutorials and more than help articles.
The aforementioned features are valuable to the web hosting experience, but none matches the importance of site uptime. If your site is down, clients or customers will be unable to find you or access your products or services.
For example, many hosting companies cap allocated memory, but you are free to increase it via an edit in wp-config.php. It might require looking up a tutorial or using a 3rd party service, but it is possible.
No. You can purchase your domain from a provider like GoDaddy and use one of the WordPress hosting providers listed above. However if you don’t have a domain already, then it’s easier to use the same provider (specially if its free).
Host your WordPress website on our newest server stack that out-performs our competition and shared hosting by more than 10x. Our Cloud Linux platform powered by NGINX, PHP 7, and free SSD storage will ensure your site is delivered blazing fast and to more visitors.
Uptime is the percentage of time that a server is operational. When you’re running a website, you want users to be able to access it at all times. When a server experiences downtime, your site would unavailable, but ideally, this happens rarely. An industry-wide goal for how much uptime a server should have is “the five nines” – an uptime of 99.999%, meaning the system is highly reliable. However, 99.9% uptime is pretty standard and should more than suffice for the majority of hosting users.
Dedicated server is a physical server that you can lease from the hosting provider. This allows you to have full control over the server including the choice of operating system, hardware etc. You DO NOT need a dedicated server if you are just starting out. Once your site is receiving a significant amount of traffic, only then you should consider upgrading to a dedicated server. WPBeginner runs on a dedicated server by HostGator. If you do not employ a system administrator or have no experience with servers, then we recommend that you get a managed dedicated server. WordPress hosting providers that offer managed dedicated servers employ full-time system administrators that maintain your servers. Along with doing software updates, they also do server monitoring, offer phone support etc. Most top websites use clusters of dedicated servers.
As shown in the screenshot, our test site loaded in less than two seconds. That’s faster than 85% of all tested websites. Keeping in mind that the test site wasn’t using any performance optimization plugins, this result is very good.
This platform is institutional for the beginners as well as heavily develop-able by different classes of web developers. It has many free plugins and themes on their own repository. For its being the #1 CMS choice, plenty of third party resources are available on the side.
There are hundreds of questions that you could ask your potential web host, but by getting the answers to these questions before you sign on the dotted line, you should get a clear picture of what you will receive, what the provider offers long term, how they treat their customers, and if they are an organization you can trust and truly want to work with.
Overall, we were impressed with how customer-centric the company’s offerings are. For example, unlike some of the hosting providers we’ve profiled (and deducted points from), MochaHost’s published prices don’t balloon once you’ve settled in with their service. They have a lifetime price-lock guarantee.
