Best WordPress Hosting – Top 5 Cheapest Hostings For WordPress

I believe you have a WordPress site and you want to host it to somewhere cheaper or somewhere better. We have done our homework about the hosting packages and plans of lots of famous companies and found the best 5 for you.

Hosting Requirements for installng WordPress

To run WordPress we recommend your host supports:

  • PHP version 7.3 or greater.
  • MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.0 or greater.
  • HTTPS support

That’s really it. We recommend Apache or Nginx as the most robust and featureful server for running WordPress, but any server that supports PHP and MySQL will do.

Note: If you are in a legacy environment where you only have older PHP or MySQL versions, WordPress also works with PHP 5.2.4+ and MySQL 5.0+, but these versions have reached official End Of Life and as such may expose your site to security vulnerabilities.

Founder Brent Oxley was adamant about being able to back up an “unlimited” option prior to offering service named as such and increased staffing.
