In addition to the criteria of PHP, MySQL databases and storage space, the following factors have played an important role in the assessment:

  • Nicer URLs with mod_rewrite

On the server the Apache should have mod_rewrite enabled modules. "Nicer URLs" can be generated with this. Instead of cryptic URLs such as www.meine-domain.de?p=123 URLs can be created with easy to read file names: www.meine-domain.de/wordpress-hosting.

  • Easy installation using one click Installer

Many providers offer today a one click Installer, i.e. WordPress can be installed completely with just a few mouse clicks in the admin area. This function is most useful for WordPress beginners. Advanced users do not need this function actually, WordPress installation is very easy and usually no longer than 5 minutes lasts (simple installation guide).

  • Server availability

Just at commercial Web sites or ambitious Web projects, low downtime are important because downtime means often a loss of revenue. With the server-monitoring service Pingdom, I have monitored Web sites that are hosted at the four providers, for a month and every minute queried to determine so the downtime.

  • Maximum memory (PHP memory limit)

The PHP memory limit is the maximum allowed disk usage in PHP script. This limit is set by the service provider and should be at least 64 MB (better 128 MB) for WordPress. It is but the more RAM the faster/better running the scripts.

Consulting . Digital Product development process

The development + design process of technical products from idea to finished product is in these days accompanied by a number of software applications and support. The usability  of these tools is evaluated by us (Software Consulting).


The digital product development process is the mapping from real development levels to compatible software applications and the resulting digital data.

With the increasing competition the companies are forced to optimize their existing development process. The first objective is to reduce development costs and to simultaneously increase product quality.Consulting - Digitale Prozesskette

Secondly by appropriate methods, the processes can be, especially in the field of CAx-Systems and PLM / PDM greatly optimized.

Finally the already existing consistency within those systems can be increased significantly.


What can we achieve for you in the area of CAx and PLM / PDM for you?

We contribute Know-how and innovation to your project!


  • We develop methods,
  • conceptualize workshops and training,
  • simplify and standardize processes,
  • show your team the efficient use of CAx – systems such as Catia V5.
