    The basic standards of a hosting for WordPress.

    For a website to work on the internet, it needs to have three main components: source code, domain and hosting. According to Wikipedia, a domain (or domain name) is a string that identifies an autonomous, authorized, or controlled domain on the internet. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of Domain Name System (DNS). Any name registered on DNS is also called a domain name. In simpler terms, the domain name is like your home address. Based on that, people can find your blog / website on the internet.

    What is hosting?

    Web hosting (or hosting) is the space on the server that has internet services installed such as TTP (www), FTP, mail or media streaming ... You can store web content and other data on that space. Web hosting is also the place where all transactions and information exchange activities between internet users and your website. And if the domain name is like a home address, the website is like a house, then web hosting is the land for you to build it.
    Back to the main point. As in the previous article I said, if you choose WordPress.com, you will absolutely not have to worry about buying hosting and domain (with the average demand and use of free sub-domain. ). Everything will be completely different if you choose WordPress.org. You will have to take care of everything from domain to hosting. In return, you are free to decide its "fate".

    Free and paid

    With a domain, you can use a free domain or buy a premium domain. However, the current international domain price is quite cheap, only about $ 10 to $ 15 a year, so I recommend investing a small fee for this field. Some famous cheap domain providers that you can refer to are GoDaddy , NameCheap ...
    Similar to the domain, you also have 2 options with web hosting: free and paid. With free hosting services, you hardly need to spend any penny. However, everything has its price, free services are often of lower quality, using old technology, many limitations and providers can lock your account, delete your data whenever They want it without notice. Therefore, paid hosting is an option that you should think about when you have enough investment capital.

    The standard of a hosting for WordPress

    As you know, WordPress is built on PHP and MySQL. Therefore, for WordPress to work stably and have the best performance, the hosting you choose must meet certain standards. These standards have been posted in detail by WordPress.org on their homepage ( see details ).
    • PHP version 7.2 or higher.
    • MySQL version 5.6 or higher, MariaDB version 10.0 or higher.
    • Support for HTTPS (preferably with Let's Encrypt built-in).
    You can check these parameters in cPanel control panel of hosting:

    WordPress also recommends using the Apache or Nginx web server. They are the most powerful and fully featured web servers to run WordPress. However, any web server that supports PHP and MySQL can do it. Currently, servers using the LiteSpeed ​​web server also outperform both Apache and NginX.
    In addition, when choosing web hosting services for WordPress (or more accurately shared hosting), you should also consider the following issues:
    • Support free automatic data backup daily, at least weekly
    • Support mod_rewrite module to use "pretty permalinks" and install multisite
    • Support sending email via SMTP
    • Softaculous support helps to quickly install common open source, including WordPress
    • Free SSL support (Let's Encrypt)
    • Minimum Uptime is 99.9% as committed by the supplier
    • The bigger the bandwidth, the better, the unlimited
    • Storage capacity suitable for use
    • The higher the CPU usage limit, the better
    • Server location: as close to the access source as possible
    • 24/7 technical support, fast ticket response speed
    And it's important to consult your customers' reviews about the service you are about to buy. Consider carefully before buying services provided by individuals. Of course, even the big vendors may not be good. Do not buy hosting of companies specializing in providing domain names, "kicking" to the hosting array.

    Some providers of quality hosting services

    Depending on the access source, you can choose to buy hosting server abroad or in the country to achieve the best access speed.
    Below is a list of some domestic and international shared hosting providers that you should refer. They are selected based on criteria such as: stable quality, affordable price, relatively good customer service.
