• Recommend hosting for a news portal

    • views 1803

    We launched a news site on WP. The content population will be mostly automatic. Judging by experience, in a month we will have 3-5 thousand unique visitors a day. The audience is in Russia. I want to try to place the site on VPS. What kind of server configuration is needed for this? P.S. We haven`t considered cloud hosting yet because of the high cost.

    Here, the issue isn`t with the hosting strength, but in the WP optimization and the correct choice of the site-servicing software. There should be enough hardware: 1GB of RAM, one core for 2GHz (for more comfortable work: two cores at 2GHz). Disk space - depends on the content of the site. Software: nginx (front) + apache (back), php 5.6 and higher, mysql 5.5 and higher. In apache, in addition to the standard and necessary for the operation of WP modules, there must be: mod_exipres. With it, you can manage the caching of site pages from the visitor`s browser. In the WP itself, you must supply the caching plugin. For example wp-super-cache. Its presence in the WP in the on state, even with basic settings, results in a significant drop in the server load.

    If you correctly configure and optimize the VPS with 1 GB of RAM (and one core of the CPU should be enough), in your case, the volume of the disk isn`t critical. We recommend choosing VPS with the possibility of increasing resources without reinstalling the server.
    3-5 thousand unique visitors per day isn`t that much. When choosing, it is better to choose based on SSD-disks and modern processors. And with the increase in attendance, you can monetize and switch to more productive VPS plans or a dedicated server.
    Hello! We recommend you check out our plans: https://adminvps.ru/wordpress_hosting.php. First you can try the VPS-Start plan. If necessary, in the future, you can switch to a higher plan without any migration. Our support team can help to optimize the server for WP at your request. Administration is free of charge.
    Start with 1 GB of RAM + 1 core 2 GHz (with the possibility of an increase, no problem). As attendance increases, you can enter different caching elements (memcached, redis, varnish).
We do our best for you!

Ratings of hosting providers by site tasks
Hosting price

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.

For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.


CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.

Free trial

Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.

Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.


OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.


Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.

Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.

Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.

DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.


Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.

ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.

Control panel

The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.

Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
