which hosting is good for startup woocommerce store?
i have hosting of hostinger it very easy to add many domain what you had.
Plenty of good hosts on here in the marketplace. Avoid hostgator and related companies as they cap the amount of visitors
Hawkhost? Hostgator is good for starter. If you can configure VPS, try Digital Ocean. Vultr also good choice.
Hostgator restricks the amount of visitors same as bluehost and justhost, all the same company
what about ehost?
Yep they own that
I think their limitation are on CPU load. Currently have a site there with daily traffic around 15K, everything is fine. A year or 2 years ago I had another site there with 50K UV/day, everything was fine except I got problem with resource graph being stuck and their support very slow, so I moved it to somewhere else. All these sites are WP fully cached (without CDN). For Woocommerce, of course you can't use caching (?), but if OP really new on this thing and still not sure how the site will get traffic, using shared hosting is a good way to save cost until the visitors starting to come up.
I was just going by experience I had with justhost
InterServer or SiteGround
I personally use SiteGround due to their amazing support and the easy Let's Encrypt SSL you can install on your site for free with one click. Plus if you optimize your site very well you can easily achieve less than 2 second load times as SiteGround servers are very well optimized. Also if you use the Go Geek plan they offer a Staging feature which helps a lot as you can easily make changes to your site and push it live with one click without having to go in maintenance mode.
Whatever you choose get a VPS or Dedicated, don't get shared hosting and you'll be fine
is digitalocean $5 package good for woocommerce?
Shared hosting usually restricts you on CPU and RAM, thus the name "shared" cause you share a really small portion of the server.
A vps is still "shared" but with more resources. Woocommerce needs more resources.
You can always go for shared hosting and keep a backup on your site (daily) in case the hosting provider kicks you out.
It might work you never know, but I'd recommend a vps.
I thought minimum ram for Woocommerce is 2GB ++ I recommend VPS first choice
But First time, Share host not bad but you will face some issue about cpu limited soon.
So, If you need to lanuch e-commerce website by wordpress+woo , I recommend VPS (If you do not have knowledge about server you can choose managed vps package)
But Just blog by wordpress Shard host is cool.
