You don’t need to know the technical details, but you need to need to make sure your hosting company meets the requirements below, as we have found many companies that do not meet the requirements to host the latest developments in WordPress websites.

If you prefer to host your website yourself or use your current hosting company, you must ensure that the following requirements are met for your site to run with the latest versions of WordPress.
IMPORTANT: It is your responsibility to ensure your hosting meets the requirements on this page. If we are unable to develop your website on your host, transfer your website from our test server to your host or make it work because your host does not support these requirements then we will not be held responsible and we will not refund your purchase price.
WordPress Server Requirements
If you are running a low budget hosting system you may still have some problems with WordPress sites even if the above requirements are met.
Your WordPress install requires adequate disc space for your site content and files with headroom to spare for future additional material and backups. There is no set size for this as it depends on the size of your website. If you are unsure of this requirement please get in touch.
You will also require sufficient memory, FTP access, at least one MySQL database, a control panel(CPanel ideally) to allow us to install and setup up your site correctly.
Please also consider your email account requirements are fully supported within your system.
