WordPress Hosting – What Should a Good WP Host Offer?

If you’re looking for great WordPress hosting, then you should first understand what a good WP host should offer. It all comes down to three very important things:

PHP & Apache Servers – Make sure your web host supports the latest version of PHP (a programming language) and has Apache web servers. Preferably, look for a web host that runs on the Linux operating system instead of a Windows operating system. Getting this right the first time will save you a LOT of hassle later on.
Fantastico / cPanel – Often referred to as a “1-Click WordPress Installer”, Fantastico is a free script bundled together with the cPanel manager software. cPanel is important so you can do regular tasks like setting up email accounts all by yourself, and Fantastico is just one function in your overall cPanel account.
Redundant Backups – Anything can go wrong at any time, and if you’ve been blogging long enough you would have probably experiences crashes and data loss. Although you can easily get certain WordPress plugins that create automatic backups for your WordPress blog, it does not backup any files not created or used by WordPress. A web host that offers automatic backups will help you sleep better at night, knowing your entire account is secured.

WordPress hosting is really simple, but a lot of web hosts just aren’t doing enough on their part to make it even easier.
