WordPress Hosting

Recommended hosting providers,with the best possible fit for your digital solution.

WordPess hosting is an important part when it comes to this platform. We always recommend the best WordPress-solutions for our own clients. With new business clients we often hear this particular question –

Does it matter where I’m hosting my website?

Well, yes it does matter! Although there are plenty to choose from out there, the vast majority of which meet the WordPress minimum requirements, we strongly recommend using and working with a quality provider.

API Studios is not offering hosting but we work closely with a selected number of providers that we trust and we’ve been recommending to our clients over the years.

We’re not going to cover comparisons or Top 10’s here and definitely not going to tell you to that the best ones are those that saves you money. If you value your business, you want quality and long term stability.

As an agency building websites, we care for our clients and we always recommend the best hosting solutions that will help them grow and keep a steady online presence. In our opinion, the providers and type of hosts below represent some of the best and brightest of the hosting world.

1. Managed WordPress hosting

As the name tells “managed”, this is exactly the type of WordPress hosting solution that beyond performance and security will give you peace of mind. As mentioned, there are plenty to choose from but based on our experience and testings over the years, these are the best and the ones we highly recommend.

It is powered exclusively by Google Cloud Platform and utilize Google Cloud’s premium tier global network to ensure your site loads even faster. Kinsta is recommended by Google Cloud as a fully-managed WordPress hosting solution.

2. Host on your own server

This is not the type of managed hosting solution as mentioned above. Instead you have to take care of everything from setup, configuration, optimization, server management and more, but you can always hire an expert to help.

There are a few options here: VPS (Virtual Private Server), Private Cloud or Dedicated Servers. Many businesses rely on these type of hosting solutions. It allows you to scale and configure everything based on your needs, you are not sharing server resources with anyone and you own it.

We at API Studios run our websites and applications on an Advanced Enterprise Class Dedicated Server from OVH to benefit from the latest technological advances. You probably won’t need that much of a power but that’s something based on the type and needs of your business website.

What can a dedicated server be used for?

There are many uses for a dedicated server: big data, machine learning, website and application hosting, backups and storage, infrastructure virtualisation, server clusters, business applications (CRM, ERP), and even online game hosting.

Here are the two providers we recommend when choosing to have your own server.

OVHcloud was founded in 1999. It is headquartered in France. It offers all types of hosting solutions from VPS, Public Cloud to Dedicated Servers. Hundreds of new servers are installed on their global infrastructure in 30 datacenters everyday. They manufacture their servers and operate their own fiber-optic network.
