Recommended solutions

Hosting Providers

There are different hosting providers who provide their own servers so you could run your site from them.

WordPress has been working with many of them and you could find their recommendations on the link below:

With them, you are renting their servers and you would need to take care of the technicalities in most cases or you would need to pay them for such services.

Cloud-based hosting

This solution is what Syncee suggests using for the best experience.

In case you do not wish to work on the technicalities but jumpstart your business, https://wordpress.com/ is a cloud-hosting provider supported by WordPress experts.

The company behind them are the ones that created WordPress and WooCommerce.

They provide their own cloud-based solutions with many features such as scalability, automated backups, etc. with the guarantee from them that your store will be always online and working perfectly.

Please note that these are the recommendations for WooCommerce stores to run seamlessly and without any issues, however, due to the customizability of the stores, it could happen that there are other changes to be made in order to have the best user experience.
