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.
