September 2, 2019 | Servers | No Comments

Joomla is one of the most popular CMS out there, and you if you want to create a content-rich and feature-rich website without much hassle, it can be a great choice for you. Of course, it’s best to pick a hosting plan that suits your budding Joomla-powered site just perfectly.

What to look for in a hosting plan?

First, make sure that there’s a 1-click installer for Joomla so that you don’t have to waste time doing some arcane server-side voodoo.

Second, pick a host that enables support for multiple databases. Not all do. It’ll help a lot with creating new versions of your Joomla site down the road, making your life much easier and preventing errors.

Third, you need to get your diligent hat on and check that the actual version for the server apps (bet it MySQL, Apache or PHP) are compatible with the Joomla version that you use. No way that the hosting provider will be OK with updating their programs just because you need that.

Fourth, you should talk to the support team in the live chat, so that you get to know the folks who are going to help you throughout the journey.

When you’re looking for a hosting plan that will play nice with WordPress, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with a deluge of technical details, features and packages on offer.

After you’ve done that, you can proceeds to compare the specific WP-optimized offers from providers.

What to look into when comparing WP-specific offers

First, you should remember that you’ll need to interact with the host’s support team throughout your journey to make it big with your WordPress site. So, it’s paramount to go off with the provider whose employees are diligent, tactful and professional in their communications.

Second, if you’re just starting out, you should pick a managed plan. Even though WordPress is easy, there’s a still a large number of server-side questions that you wouldn’t want to deal with at the start of your career here.

Third, make sure that the provider has a nice number of sublevels in a segment you’ve picked. This will enable a smooth upgrading process as your site scales.
