Should I use Azure VPS ? Or should I use a more standard shared setup?

    Hi guys, need some guidance here if you could oblige?:)

    I’m looking at building a new website which needs some content switches for regions of the world, aswell as multi-language support. Can anyone recommend how to meet my requirements.


    Question 1: Should I use Wordpress?

    Question 2: Hosting? Should I use Azure VPS ? Or should I use a more standard shared setup?



    Type of site: Simple brochure wear/comparison site, no server-side logic (apart from CMS text in DB?)

    Target audience: Global


    Requirements:
    1. Internationalization*: manual translations for approx. 10 languages, other languages translated with a tool(?)
    2. Content needs to be dependent on the region of the world the user is in i.e. for users in the U.S. remove a subsection on a page and remove a page from a drop-down menulist etc.
    3. Needs to be fast
    4. It’s my startup, so inevitably low hosting/cloud costs are key

    SEMrush
    *In terms of SEO, I believe Google rankings now favour locality – so should I have one site under ‘.com’ which is translated to the user’s language (based on regional settings?) OR should I actually split the sites to different Top Level Domains per country i.e. .de, .fr, .co.uk (I think maintenance of this could be painful.. rolling out content updates etc)

    For Wordpress, you should consider alternatives to Azure VPS, as these will be best for Windows operating system hosting. WordPress is best hosted on Linux VPS, with CentOS (or other Red Hat distro), Ubuntu, etc. Most hosting providers, Google, AWS, and other cloud platforms would be better than Azure in my opinion.

    1. Wordpress is OK to use if you will update it frequently.
    2. I would choose something like Digital Ocean or AWS if you are familiar with Linux OS administration. If not, than shared hosting service would be OK.
