To run WordPress on a web hosting server, it is recommended to meet the following minimum server requirements:
- PHP version 7.4 or greater: WordPress recommends running the latest stable version of PHP for improved performance and security. We use PHP 8.0 as it’s a major update of the PHP language. It contains many new features and optimizations including named arguments, union types, attributes, constructor property promotion, match expression, nullsafe operator, JIT, and improvements in the type system, error handling, and consistency.
- MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.1 or greater: These are the two most commonly used database systems for WordPress, and the database stores all the content and settings of your website.
- HTTPS support: HTTPS is a secure protocol that encrypts data between the server and the user’s browser, and it is essential for securing your website.
- Apache or Nginx server: Apache and Nginx are the two most commonly used web servers for WordPress hosting. Apache is the most popular web server on the internet, while Nginx is known for its high-performance capabilities.
- Minimum disk space of 1GB: You will need enough disk space to store your WordPress files, themes, and plugins.
In addition to these requirements, our server configuration is optimized for WordPress. This includes caching mechanisms, PHP accelerators, and other optimizations that improve the performance and security of your website. We offer WordPress-specific hosting plans for Basic WordPress Website and WordPress E-commerce site that come preconfigured with these optimizations.
