It depends on the size of your store, the number of products, the location of your target audience, the level of help you require and many more.

It is quite a big decision to choose a web host for your website as it is a vital factor to ensure the success of your business. You can greatly enhance and boost your website performance with the help of the right web host. Choose wrongly, and you’ll cause expenses and all kinds of headaches.


You will have to consider the important factors when choosing the right web hosting provider for Magento Hosting.


Here are some factors that help you select the right hosting provider for Magento Hosting,


  • Understand the requirements of your site

Re: Factors to Consider for Magento Hosting

Most of the replies are speaking about the target audience. Trust me, the location of the server does not matter as you will see very few ms deviations. That can be avoided if you use CloudFlare or a better CDN.


I always prefer clustered environment for M2 as it is too powerful and also to ensure high availability. 


So just pick some well-known provider like AWS, Google, Linode, DigitalOcean, Hetzner, Vultr, Kamatera


All the host I have mentioned above maintains 99.999% uptime. Just choose the one which is in your budget and hire some pro to build your M2 infra.


I do build my own infra for all my M2.





Re: Factors to Consider for Magento Hosting

The first and topmost priority should be to look for all the requirements that a Magento store needs. Cloud hosting is a recommended solution.

Then you can look for these factors

  • Nearest data center to your targeted location
  • Security and optimization features like CDN and Varnish
  • Server uptime and Support
  • Ease of use
  • Addons features (Like Free SSL)
  • Backups
  • Pricing
  • Scalability
