What most of the people don’t know that since these CMS only needs are PHP, MySQL and an Apache server, any Linux Hosting provider can fulfill the web hosting requirements for these CMS. However, what truly makes a difference is the level of support and the amount of server resources that you are actually allowed to use. WordPress doesn’t usually consume as much server resources and has a small footprint when being compared with Joomla and Drupal. Therefore, you have to be more careful when choosing your Joomla or Drupal web hosting especially if your website receives a good number of monthly visitors.
