What is WordPress Hosting? Do I need it?
WordPress Hosting is just Web Hosting that is customized to run WordPress better. WordPress suggests certain memory and PHP settings to run smoothly. We fine-tuned those settings, plus some extra secret sauce to create the most secure, fastest WordPress Hosting available. And we can prove it!
These are the basic requirements for WordPress to run:
- PHP version 7.3+
- MySQL version 5.6+ or MariaDB version 10.1+
- HTTPS support
Note: WordPress also works in legacy environments with PHP 5.6.20+ and MySQL 5.0+, but these versions have reached official end-of-life and as such may expose your site to security vulnerabilities.
Now since that is just the requirements, there is obviously some room to improve by using the latest software versions and tweaking performance settings. But don’t worry – we took care of all of that for you!
