french web hosting

How to choose your WordPress hosting for France ?

When I have to choose a web host to create a website, I look at the following criteria:

  • The performance of the server and its specs (CPU, Ram, etc)
  • The pricing
  • The storage available and type of disks
  • Security (SSL) and tools
  • The automatic backups of your work in progress
  • the reactivity and quality of the customer support

Which French Web host to choose for WordPress?

Here is a ranking in order of preference of the best web hosts to host your WordPress site:

  1. O2switch
  2. WP Server
  3. Infomaniak
  4. PlanetHoster
  5. IONOS

Moreover, some of them offer a free domain name for the first year or for LIFE; this will allow you to save easily about ten euros in registration fees or more!
