A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. – Wikipedia
Every website needs a host to create a home for their website. Think of a host as an empty lot, and your website being the house that is built on it. Having good and secure hosting is one of the first things you need to get sorted when it comes to setting up your website.
While you can run a small website with as little as 256MB of RAM, if you’re installing WordPress on your own server you’ll want at least 512 MB of RAM for your basic site if you want to ensure good performance.
WooCommerce server requirements:
PHP version 7.3 or greater
MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.0 or greater
Well, we don’t recommend it. Most local hosting companies offer shared hosting. A shared web hosting service is a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server connected to the Internet. This is generally the most economical option for hosting, as the overall cost of server maintenance is spread over many customers.
This results in minimum server resources that are usually capped at 128Mb of memory. WordPress and WooCommerce server requirements only start at 128Mb, so having it capped at the starting point is not a good start for your site.
Having too little memory for your server to run on, creates error pages, takes pages or websites down, and can make customers run away faster than you can say “Trust broken”. In some cases, you even have to pay extra for an SSL certificate which is a non-negotiable when it comes to eCommerce stores.
If you do not want to go with one of our suggested hosts, we suggest copying and pasting the below, and emailing your preferred host to ensure the server requirements are enough.
I’m interested in running WordPress and WooCommerce web software for my web project and I was wondering if my account supported the following:
SSL certificates are a small data files that cryptographically establish an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private.
Once we have had the website meeting, and have received the a-ok after your 1 round of change requests, we send you a document with a release to be signed. After that has been signed and returned to us, we will transfer your website to your own hosting and send you your own login details.
