What does my existing hosting provider need to provide for me to run a website?

We like your provider to have MySQL (Version 5.0 or higher ideally) and php (version 5 or better).  In addition, your service provider should also offer:

  • FTP
  • eMail
  • access to set up cron jobs
  • ability to connect to MySQL remotely

Depending on the needs of your eventual site, there may be some other requirements as well, including ability to create subdomains.

If you're not sure whether or not your service provider offers you everything you need, we can help figure that out for you.
