In our last post, we explained about CMS and different types of it. One of the most famous types of CMS is WordPress. Every website and CMS have their own requirements to get installed on hosts. In this post, we are going to show you what are the requirements for WordPress.
Choosing a good hosting service is a big deal for your website. Having a good hosting service is majorly going to have an effect on the website’s SEO and its success. There are different options to choose from when you want to host a WordPress website. You can have shared hosting, a VPS, a dedicated server or etc. However, there are two questions you need to ask yourself before choosing a service:
- What are the system requirements for my WordPress website?
- Which hosting service does my website actually needs?
What are the system requirements for my WordPress website?
The first two and the most important things that a WordPress website needs are:
- PHP version 5/2/4 or higher
- MySQL version 5 or higher
This is because WordPress is based on PHP and MySQL database. Because of the popularity that this sCMS has all o ver the world, most hosting services have a one-click option to install WordPress. The default language after the installation is English and if you need any other languages you need to install it separately.
Which hosting service does my website actually needs?
According to what we mentioned in posts about shared hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers, you need to choose the service that has enough resources. You should also check the accesses you are going to need for your website. This is because some services like shared hosting have limited access comparing to VPS and dedicated. Another thing to consider is the number of visitors your website has. This will help you know how much resources you are going to need. Our support team at AiroServer.com can always help you choose the best hosting service.
