Choice of Web Hosting and Domain Provider - WepE Part 3

Choosing the right web hosting and domain provider will save you a lot of grief and work. In my more than 20 years as a webmaster, I have unfortunately already had many negative experiences that I would have liked to have spared.

Creating a Website for Passive Income (WepE) Series – Part 3

Before I get to the step-by-step guide to web hosting, I’d like to clarify some basic questions that can arise when it comes to WordPress hosting.


Web hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to put a website on the Internet. A web host or web hosting service provider is a company that provides the technologies and services needed to view the website or blog on the Internet. Websites are hosted or stored on special computers called servers.

What should WordPress hosting be able to do?

Climate-positive WordPress hosting – and fast

If you want to give your visitors a really good user experience, you can’t avoid a fast website. For the CMS WordPress, you should choose a professional who specializes in optimizing for WP.

In addition, your choice should be limited to providers from your country, so that the way to your visitors is as short as possible and the laws that apply to you are complied with.

Modern hosters offer free SSL certificates.

Raidboxes is my recommendation for you

Web hosting recommendations are usually garbage.

Often extremely cheap hosting packages are recommended for € 3, others advertise with a € 100 VPS, because they earn the most as an affiliate. In the end, we all just want the fastest possible web space for as little money as possible.

Optimized for WordPress!

What else is important? The server should be located in Germany and the support should respond as quickly as possible, preferably on German.

You can get all this at Raidboxes from € 9.00 / month.

Before you create a “box” with payment, you can first register for free and take a closer look at the service of Raidboxes.

Click on “Start now for free” and follow the registration instructions. All you need is your e-mail address.

Term: In Raidboxes, individual web hosting packages are called boxes. Each box hosts a WordPress website.

You will then end up in the dashboard, where you can create a new box or move an existing website here from another provider.

If you want to move an existing blog, you can do it yourself with a plugin provided, or use the relocation service. Both variants are free of charge.

But since I assume a completely new website in this series, the instructions continue with a new box.

The beauty of Raidboxes is that you can test each new box for free for 14 days. You don’t take any risks! Within these 14 days you have to activate the box for a fee, otherwise it will be automatically deleted.

Your new BOX starts for free in demo mode and will be automatically removed after the trial period if you have not activated it for a fee by then.

For the new demo box you first have to choose a tariff. The cheapest costs € 9,00, which I would really only recommend for extremely small pages. For starters, the starter tariff for € 15.00 is optimal. Here you can inform yourself in advance exactly about the tariffs.

In the information you can definitely choose the latest WP version. Finally, you choose a name for the web hosting box, a username and a password. Once you have checked everything, click on “CREATE BOX”.

It will take about 5 minutes for your box to be created, then you will be automatically redirected to the dashboard.

In your box you will find all the information and tools for your new website. With no other provider is the management of WordPress easier.

Your new blog is now fully installed and accessible via a Raidboxes subdomain and fully functional.

Only with the activation you can activate your own domain.

Choose a domain provider and register a domain

Basically, there are two ways to register domains and connect them to your own web host.

Domain at the web host

Every web hosting provider offers to book domains directly with the web hosting.

This is definitely the easier method because you don’t have to worry about anything. Changes to the DNS server are usually also taken over by the provider, which can be both an opportunity and a disadvantage.

Specialized domain providers

Specialized domain providers such as NameCheap offer full graphical access to the domain robot.

Such a service is handy if you really want to manage a lot of domains and make frequent changes to your domains.

But you also need deeper DNA knowledge.

Register and activate domains

Since this is a guide for beginners, we register the domain for the new project directly with Raidboxes.

Attention: Domain registrations are always immediately subject to a fee and cannot be reversed.

In the Raidboxes dashboard you will find the menu item “Domains”. Here you will find all your active domains and you can register new ones or move external ones here.

For a new domain, first enter your desired name and then click on “Check availability”. In part 2 of the series, we already talked about finding a domain.

Follow the next steps to complete the registration.

Link your domain to Box

You can then link your new domain directly to your previously created box.

It can take up to two days for your blog to be available at the new address. In most cases, however, it only takes up to an hour.

Enable SSL Certificate

Once you have connected your own domain name, you should enable the Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate in the settings.

No matter what you do, the provider has detailed instructions for all problems.

If you need any clarification, you will have the German-language support within one minute via the blue chat widget or by phone for support.

Conclusion Web hosting

The right WordPress hosting and the domain are crucial parts of an online project, but with the right provider, the implementation becomes child’s play.

Fast web hosting doesn’t have to be expensive, as Raidboxes proves. But it only gets really cool with the first-class support. A short phone call, or the instant chat, and srchon is all in butter.

This article has become short because we have created a finished WordPress blog with just a few clicks, including domain.

We also anticipated the installation of WordPress for the next part, because the web host has taken over this fully automatically for us.
