Hosting advice - for SEO and best wordpress hosting

Hi gang,

I'm looking to set up a new website targeting a global audience.

First off, I know Google uses hosting location as a factor in where it decides to show your site in organic results. In that case, any opninons on where's best to host the domain.

Second, any thoughts on great hosting - looking for the usual stuff like low cost, scalability, speed, that sort of thing.

Thanks :)

If you want to target a worldwide market, then you do not have to worry where to host your domain. You can just buy it from your hosting provider or from cheaper sites like NameCheap.

For the hosting company, there is really not much of a difference as most of the known hosting companies offer the same packages. Just stick to a hosting company that provides you with the features that you need to start and of course, it is also better to consider the prices for such package and how the customer service provides support.

If you can target audience globally then you don't need host your domain on location. You can pick any hosting company to host your domain.

WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) around, but some of the tools that make it so powerful can also slow its performance to a crawl. Most web-optimization experts will tell you that you may have only a few seconds (if that) to capture your site visitor’s interest, so a sluggish site is sure to cost you. But, with a few relatively simple tweaks, you can gain a sizable uptick in performance.

If you want your site to be international and if you write all the content in English, you should probably host your domain name in the USA or close to it.

Even though Google doesn't rely very much on the location of your server for the Generic top-level domains, if your web hosting server is closer to the location of your visitors, that will make your site to load faster.

As the web hosting provider, I recommend Siteground.

If you expect to receive international traffic, you should also add a CDN (Content Delivery Network) to your site. A CDN will load your site's static content from the server that's closest to the location of your visitors.

I use KeyCDN for my site. KeyCDN is cheaper than most of the alternatives and you only pay the resources your site consumes (don't have to pay for a monthly plan).

If you use WordPress, you should also combine the CDN with a caching plugin (I use W3 Total Cache for my blog). If you do so, the CDN will be also able to deliver the cached files and your site will load very fast for all the people who visit your site. If you combine a caching plugin with a CDN, your site will also consume fewer resources from your web hosting plan.
