Hosting – Joomla Web Hosting
Joomla Web Hosting is similar to WordPress and other types of CMS or content management sites. This is all about what kind of features you are going to want to look for when you are choosing a Joomla web host.
- One of the things you definitely want to look for, and I have seen this come up time and time again if you want to make sure that the web host can allow you to customize your php.Ini file. So make sure that the web host can do that. A quick Google search which shows that a lot of people are setting up Joomla is having trouble with PHP.
- One of the biggest issues with that is something called magic quotes and that needs to be turned off in Joomla. So just make sure that you are able to edit the php.Ini file.
When you are looking for a host, make sure that it has similar features that you would look for in any other hosting company such as, does it have a one-click install, and does it have daily backups. Does the company respond to tickets quickly? These all are the good things to looking for when you are going to choose Joomla web hosting.
Make sure that you choose a web host that is running Linux. Don’t choose a web host running Windows. Because Joomla runs on a coding language called PHP and a database language called MySQL and although they do run on windows, those different languages. It runs much more efficiently and properly, and it was designed to run on Linux. So definitely take a look and make sure that you look at that.
My personal recommendation for Joomla web hosting is a company called Green Geeks. The reason why I recommend them is that they offer free space, there is no limitation on space or data transfer which means basically how much data you upload to the server or how many times, whenever someone goes to your website it uses a little bit of data and that is what is called data transfer. Green Geeks they would probably be my number one pick for a Joomla installation. So that should save you a little bit of money.
