The FASTEST WordPress Hosting in Thailand - (Updated for 2020!)

You know it yourself, when a website is slow to load you quickly lose patience and click away. Your own site is no different, right?

We've tried 100s over different hosting providers over the years. In this post I’ll share the fastest WordPress hosts we've found for Thailand and why we use them.

Since we started in 2008, we have worked with over 2000 businesses and used a huge number of different hosting companies over the years. These are the few we use ourselves, trust and recommend to clients on a daily basis.

The Best WordPress Hosting Providers in Thailand

Most people choose a hosting provider based on price but when you care about performance, SEO, Facebook and Google Ads, that’s a bad idea. If you’re on this page I’m guessing you’re not looking for the cheapest you’re looking for the best right?

A VERY common mistake Thai business owners make is choosing hosting based out of the US or internationally when their target audience is Thailand or South East Asia. If website speed is important to you (which it should be!) you ideally want a hosting provider located in the same country as your visitors or target market.

You’ll find our preferred hosts for Thailand in the table below. Here’s a one liner summary of each one:

Cloudways - this is a new-ish provider and has multiple options hosted in Singapore & throughout Asia. This is by far the fastest because of their speed optimized server stack, you get a power of a fully dedicated server without the complexity. If you want the fastest choose this one. 

They also have 60+ locations throughout the world including Australia, UK and the US.

Generally for our clients based in Thailand serving a Thai audience we'll use a Singapore server as well as Cloudflare for our CDN - Cloudflare has a server location in Bangkok so we get the power of a fully dedicated server running in Singapore with a large proportion of the site served from Cloudflare in Bangkok.

**They have a 3 day free trial BUT if you use the coupon code FASTHOSTING they'll give you $25 credit so nearly 3 months free on the base plans!**

 

 

Siteground - the fastest Cpanel host and only marginally more expensive that the rubbish $3-5/month hosts! ...their data centre is located in Singapore which well placed for Thailand based visitors. Best if you have a handful of small sites, have a tight budget and also need email hosting.

 

WPEngine - if one of the original Managed WP Hosts with several data centres in Asia. Go with WPE if you have Woocommerce or a complex site that needs high quality backups and a staging environment. Not the cheapest BUT you’ll save money on web developers and support.

 

Kinsta - a premium managed WP hosting provider running on Google Cloud Platform with several locations through Asia. For some types of sites they may be a better choice than WPEngine especially if you're running a large or complex site. If you're considering WPEngine it'd be worth looking at Kinsta too.

 

WPX Hosting - WPX does NOT have an Asia location BUT if you're targeting an international US or UK market they're worth a look. They're an amazingly priced Managed WordPress Host with a great balance of price and performance with excellent support, email hosting too!

Why is speed important?

If you’ve done any searching around the web around website speed or fast WordPress hosting you’ll see a bunch of scary stats thrown around. You’ll see things like “every 1 second of speed equates to 1% less conversion rate” and similar.

I don’t know how correct these numbers are, or the testing methodology being used but I’m guessing we can both agree faster websites=better, right?

There’s really no argument about whether speed is important, it’s even part of Google’s search algorithm, faster loading sites rank higher!

How To Choose A Provider

Unfortunately most people choose a hosting provider based on price which is not really the best way to do it.

Ultimately with hosting you get what you pay for. Cost is obviously one of the considerations to look at when choosing a provider but that's really only one element of many. Below I’ve summarized the key features or things we look for when choosing a hosting provider.
