Important quote from WordPress site:

Hosting is more secure when PHP applications, like WordPress, are run using your account’s username instead of the server’s default shared username. The most common way nowadays for hosting companies to do this is using suPHP. Just ask your potential host if they run suPHP or something similar.

We have tested it with Mac, Windows and Linux. You should also check WordPress minimum requirements and ensure your host can comply with.
