I'm thinking of purchasing a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B to host my WordPress website. The website has 4 pages and 2-3 plugins. Will it be fast?

Here are some specs for the Raspberry:

Broadcom BCM2711, quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHz 1GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM 2.4GHz and 5.0 GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n/ac wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, BLE True Gigabit Ethernet

    I would think the expected traffic is the major question, how many simultaneous connections? In my experience the performance would be perfectly adequate for one or two connections at a time.

    You forgot an important detail: how fast is the storage drive? That's important for a web host, while Bluetooth is completely irrelevant for it. Will you be connecting it wirelessly to WiFi or with a wired Ethernet connection? That's important for stability.

It depends on your website and you should look for the size of that and its content. However, after the first model raspberry pi, it would be possible to run your website on a raspberry pi. Because the RAM capacity is reasonable and there would be no concentration about that.

It's all about your internet capacity and your storage. If you intended to use the default SD-Card as your database and store your site to that, you would face some problem. We suggest you add another drive like Flash Drive, HDD or SSD. Of course, the SSD is a choice without any question.

You might found some article about using nginx instead of apache but the official raspberry pi website suggests LAMP which is Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP.

After all, you can check your website performance by an online website analyzer like gtmetrix.com that you can acquire statistics of your site.
