We recommend Apache or Nginx as the most robust and featureful server for running Word Press, but any server that supports PHP and My SQL will do.

Hosting is more secure when PHP applications, like Word Press, are run using your account’s username instead of the server’s default shared username.

Ask your potential host what steps they take to ensure the security of your account.

We strongly recommend the latest versions of PHP and My SQL, but we understand that this isn’t right for everyone, and that sometimes hosts can be slow or hesitant to upgrade their customers since upgrades to PHP and My SQL have historically broken applications.

Word Press will always work on the latest versions of PHP and My SQL, which are often faster and more stable.
