Hey guys. Today’s video is all about the best WooCommerce hosting options for 2021. OG viewers of this channel may remember that we made a video on the best options for 2020, and it’s time to breathe some new life into it. We know how quickly things change! Plus, I have a few special guests today eager to strut their stuff for you, so let’s get right into it. As you may know, WooCommerce is the most popular eCommerce plugin for WordPress, used by over 5 million sites! But the success of this plugin depends heavily on the functionality of its hosting. So if you’re running an online business, choosing the right option is crucial as it will affect user interaction with your shop, and ultimately, sales. Before I get into the top picks for 2021 and introduce my guests, let me go over what you should be looking for in the first place in a WooCommerce hosting provider. For privacy and security, you’ll want to look for hosting that provides isolated environments for each website. These isolated environments ensure security, greater flexibility, and better performance of a website--all important aspects in running a successful online store! Shared hosting has nothing to do here. An SSL certificate is important because it reassures potential customers about your site identity through authentication. It also supports encryption, which is an absolute must if you are expecting a potential customer to fill in their contact and/or credit card info. Good hosting providers will include this as part of their plan. For your online store to be successful, it needs to be available to visitors. Pretty obvious, I know. So when looking for a WooCommerce hosting provider, focus on the ones that provide more uptime. Ideally use ones that run on data centers classified as Tier 4, which means your website will experience the lowest amount of downtime in a year. Now Listen up, Google tells us that more than half of website visits are abandoned if a site takes more than 3 seconds to load. People expect things fast, and your hosting provider better deliver. So make sure to go with an option that guarantees speed, and has data centers across the globe cuz they make sure your target audience has fast access and a good user experience. Tightly connected to speed, the next point is caching and optimization. There are specifics to caching when it comes to optimizing eCommerce sites. Engineers will tell you that it’s tricky. A “kill them all, freeze them all” approach -- oh! Pardon me, a “cache them all” approach does not work here. Why? Because for the sake of your business, you can’t cache dynamic pages in eCommerce sites or make them static as you would with landing pages. But, you do still want them to be super fast of course. What’s the solution? A hosting provider that provides smart optimizing solutions for eCommerce dynamic pages. We are gonna make a video about WordPress caching and optimization in more details, so subscribe to our channel so you dont miss it out. Next up: make sure your hosting provider has impressive and customizable backup solutions for you. Why? Because you need to be able to backup your website frequently, especially before updates. And you have to be able to restore your site easily. Some hosting providers may even handle the backups themselves--definitely keep an eye out for that as it makes life easier! The security of your site is one of the most important things to look for. You should feel reassured that your site--and therefore online stores, are in good hands. The more options provided that cover all types of security threats, the better. WooCommerce is multisite compatible, so your hosting provider should make the management of multiple sites as easy as possible. Make sure to look for options that have intuitive dashboards with all the tools necessary. So whenever you have a new online business idea cde, never let your hosting provider get in the way. And finally, the last thing to pay attention to: good support! Listen, your online shop is your pride and joy, and you will have questions, concerns, and sometimes you’ll just need a little help. And that’s okay. You need the guarantee of a reliable, knowledgeable, and helpful support team that works when you do. Even if that feels like it’s 24/7 most days! They should be available to assist you in all your concerns--whether they are general housekeeping issues or technical issues. Look for a hosting provider that prioritizes customer satisfaction. So now that you know what to look for in WooCommerce hosting, I’m gonna share with you the 3 best WooCommerce hosting providers of 2021. I’ve even split them up for you in terms of categories, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. Yes, I just love you guys that much! Think of it like this, you need a superhero to save the day, right? So just like there are different superheroes with different superpowers to choose from , there are also different WooCommerce hosting providers with different features. They still all have the same end goal: saving the world for the former, and keeping your online store functioning optimally for the latter! So let me finally introduce you to my 3 good friends who are going to help me explain the differences of each hosting provider. I hope everyone watching is #TeamMarvel...don’t @ me! I’m gonna start the top 3 picks with the one that is best for businesses that already have an online store, but feel their current hosting experience is sub-par. In other words, businesses that are ready for the next level. The absolute best option in this category is 10Web. So 10Web is an automated WordPress Hosting Platform, powered by Google Cloud.

But don’t let that fear stop you from wanting more from your current hosting provider. 10Web makes the process of migration as smooth and secure as possible--and free. Did I mention free?

Linked below! All right, the next pick in my list is best suited for businesses that are already running, but don’t have an eCommerce presence. So if you have a physical business, and want to get in on the world of online stores, this ones for you. The best option in this category is Cloudways. So Cloudways offers managed WordPress WooCommerce hosting and really prides itself on scalability. What do I mean by scalability? Mmm, I think I’ll see if the Hulk can help me out here. Ohhh, Bruce? Yeah like that. But with a lot less anger. Cloudways’ goal is to use its scalable platform to get your business from “mess to success”. It uses top Infrastructure As A Service providers like DigitalOcean, AWS, and more to help deliver a smooth experience for your customers.

So it offers a vertical scaling feature where you can easily scale your plan or server size to adjust to your needs. It also conveniently offers Pay-as-you-go plans so you can upgrade or downgrade based on your needs and budget. Kind of like how Bruce may need a larger shirt size when he transitions into the Hulk.

Proactive Cloudways security practices are put in place to keep your servers safe and secure. So if there is ever a threat, you can imagine what will happen.

Okay, that brings me to the final pick in the best WooCommerce hosting providers for 2021. This last one is best suited for those who are starting from scratch with only an idea for an eCommerce store. Also those running a small operation or planning to, who don’t really have any major expenses, and are looking for a low budget alternative. If you find yourself nodding along to this description, then SiteGround, a managed Wordpress hosting provider, is the best fit for you. Why? Well it will meet you where you are, in the early stages, and have the basics covered without being intimidating. I guess I can ask Peter to give you an idea. Oh, he’s still in class. But when needed, he can definitely assist! ....not exactly on the same level as Iron Man. But in some contexts, it may just be what you need. SiteGround prides itself on the ease of which you can launch your store. As mentioned, it meets you in the early stages, and its prices and features really reflect that--especially as their plans are all shared hosting.

With SiteGround, as your budget grows you can buy extensions or plugins that can enhance your store, marketing integrations, and the overall user experience.

If you choose one of their more expensive shared plans, SiteGround also gives you the option to test your shop out on a staging copy, before going live. For many people, security risks that are associated with online shops can be enough to deter them from ever launching theirs. SiteGround takes security seriously, and they have a unique AI anti-bot system that effectively blocks millions of security threats every day.
