When customers launch new websites we often find that the most overlooked aspect is hosting performance. This means most modern CMS integrations that use platforms such as WordPress, Joomla etc. are placed on lower-tier hosting accounts and can drastically slow down your website. Slow page loads reduce your SEO scores and make for a bad UX (User Experience).
When developing websites for our customers we try to find the best balance of price and performance. When it comes to website hosting, we will look at things such as how much memory, how many CPUs and whether solid-state drives are used. For customers that already have accounts with hosting such as GoDaddy, we will work with the customer to upgrade their accounts when necessary.
Generally, nothing less than a business package should be used when hosting any kind of CMS websites. Alternatively, Microsoft Azure is probably the best fit, it might be pricey by it’s definitely the best hosting and cloud solution currently on the market.
VPS and or Dedicated Performance Hosting is often another popular option and it is also crucial to understand and tweak the inner workings of the HTTP server such as Apache, Nginx or IIS. Performance testing should be done to fine-tune the number of maximum and current connections, allocation of resources and DDoS prevention methods put in place.
