Before choosing any WordPress Hosting
- Local Data centre: Local data centre should be top priority before choosing any hosting service, because server location affects website loading time due to latency. We recommend you choose a data center that is located close to where the majority of your site’s visitors are.
- Pricing: Pricing is always an important factor because you should know, what are you getting at what cost. It will be the best if WordPress hosting service provider support payment in the local currency Australian Dollar (AUD). Because you do have not to pay any conversion charge, like charges for converting Australian Dollar to any other currency. You do have not to worry about, do your debit/credit card supports international payment or not.
- Bandwidth: Bandwidth also plays important role in choosing WordPress hosting service. Some hosting service provider limits the number of visits (like- 10000 or 20000 visits per month) beyond that you have to pay extra. It can be okay for Woocommerce (selling products) but bloggers should prefer such hosting service which does not put a limit on the number of visitors.
- Email Hosting: Email address connected to your domain name (email@your_domain_name.com) is more professional.
- Free Domain: Generally purchasing a new domain and its yearly subscription charges cost around USD $ 12 to USD $ 18. If you are getting it for free, it’s fine, it will help you save money.
- WordPress Installation: Generally all web hosting service provider offer one-click WordPress installation and some also comes with pre-installed WordPress.
- Customer Support: Generally, all hosting service provider offers 24*7 customer support. Probably you will never need customer support for WordPress if you follow tutorials and documentation properly. That’s why I put customer support in the least position. But, If WordPress hosting service providers support local languages, like Australian local language. It can be great.
