    Check to ensure they offer support and geographically-relevant location to your target audience. As someone who has been on the other side of things, I can always recommend opening a support ticket prior to purchasing services with new providers.

    Simply, opening a ticket to get a basic question answered will often give you quality insight on the hosting provider. Support speed, friendliness of staff, and competency to host websites can all be determined by this simple gesture.

    One of the most important things to look for when choosing a host is the support, indeed. It's good if the host offers you a few ways of getting in touch with them - for example via an email, chat, phone.... When choosing a WordPress hosting I suggest you look for a plan that that includes SSD hosting for better speed and performance of your website.

    I have listed some points you should consider when choosing a WordPress hosting, some of them below:
    • Mod Security: to help your site load safer
    • Dedicated IP: to help you with many useful things in SEO, SMTP email and avoiding spam problems.
    • Automatically & Real-time Backup: to help your site safer and avoid losing your important database
    • SSD Drive: to increase the read/write data time to disk more faster
    • Cache Services: to help your site responses faster and increase the load capacity
    You guys can read other factors in the article here

    Hope this helps!

    It would be good if the hosting plan includes SSL certificates, backups, CDN, and IPv6 support.
