  • Resolved newance


    I don’t think this will fit in the Networking WordPress Forum since i have only one website.

    In fact, i should say I “will” have one website because I’m very close to launching my very first WP website and now facing two challenges:

    1) I know this is an century old topic but choosing a hosting provider is hard for me. My site is a membership site. I will have most likely very low traffic when first launch it but due to its nature, if it will be well-received by the public, it tends to grow into a very large size of membership. And the way my site works is my members will constantly submit content from frontend and interact with one another. So it will be very dynamic as well. Most hosts I’ve read about have restrictions on pageviews / visitors and for those who claim unlimited pageviews / visitors in the end all have restriction based on php or something I don’t quite understand but all eventually means there ARE restrictions.

    Plus new content from my frontend members will be added constantly so backup becomes an important concern as well, and speed.

    This is my first time creating a wordpress site and a commercial one so I’m at a loss now as to just what to go for at this time. If any experienced members here who have done it all can offer some insight, it will be highly appreciated.

    2) How do you folks come up with the Terms of Use (Terms and Conditions). Probably seeking an attorney? Setting up a business entity is another challenge. I think there should be quite a lot of people here (entrepreneurs) who have been through this same process so wonder if there are certain venues I can start looking ?

    Thank you so much for reading.

    1. The WordPress team has provided a list of recommended hosting providers. Be mindful of the requirements, and for more details and other recommendations, please search through the forums or via your preferred search engine.

    Most hosting providers allow you to increase your hosting plan as necessary, so start small or what you need now and move up as necessary.

    2. Always seek a legal professional for that. Don’t write them yourself, unless you are a legal professional, and don’t take advice from anyone who is not a legal professional.

    Please do not be put off, but I’m closing this topic. Here’s why: topics about hosting get closed due to the amount of spam they produce and the amount of “That Host is Awful!” replies.

    The second reason is that you’re asking a very good TOS question but as James alluded, seek professional advice regarding that. No one here is a lawyer and these are software support forums.

    If you’ve a WordPress topic such as “Why aren’t comments working?” then please ask again in a new topic. But legal advice just is not for here.
