Knowing the ins and outs of Wordpress Hosting

Unlike shared hosting, our managed WordPress hosting server environment was designed specifically with WordPress in mind. This means you can enjoy faster page load times, a higher level of protection against WordPress-specific attacks, and automatic WordPress updates.

WORDPRESS.COM VS WORDPRESS.ORG

Among the various blogging platforms, WordPress is definitely one of the most popular blogging programs. There are two types of WordPress platforms: WordPress.com and WordPress.org. Using WordPress.com and you will be assigned a subdomain website (e.g. yourname.wordpress.com). The benefit for hosting your website under WordPress.com is that it costs you nothing. However, you won't have full access to certain features. WordPress.com does not support plugins, which are one of the most important features of WordPress). In addition, WordPress.com is "ad-supported". This means that ads will be randomly displayed on your blog.

For WordPress.org, you need to find your own web hosting firm and install the program yourself. Hence, you also need to register your own domain name. However, since it's a program, it is customizable (you can modify and edit the CSS, themes, and html codes). Simply, you have full control over modifying your blogs to better suit your needs.

Both WordPress.com and WordPress.org have their pros and cons. But since WordPress.com cannot offer full access to the features of WordPress, it is better to use WordPress.org.

WORDPRESS REQUIREMENTS

In order to use WordPress.org, you need to find a web hosting package that is compatible with WordPress. To use WordPress, your hosting plan needs to have MySQL and PHP support.

What is Managed WordPress Hosting?

Managed WordPress hosting is a hosting environment that’s specifically designed to cater to WordPress websites. Think of it as wearing a well-tailored suit, custom fitted to your body. Rather than grabbing a suit off the rack, with your eyes closed!

Managed WP advantages for your website:

  • It’s incredibly fast. Every aspect of the server has been tweaked to cater to WordPress’s setup. This level of hosting can often drop page load speeds by a second or more.
  • It’s much more secure. This kind of hosting offers increased security protocols and more individualized attention. Plus, if you do get hacked you’ll have a support team who has experience with WordPress-specific attacks.
  • Your server is always up to date. The team who manages your hosting will always ensure the server is running the latest software, so your site will perform as efficiently as possible. Their goal is to keep you, and your website, happy.
  • Dedicated support. The support teams who run managed WordPress hosting accounts are generally WordPress experts. Who would you rather have looking after your site?
  • Increased uptime. Since your site will be sharing resources with less websites, and in some cases, none, your site is able to use a greater portion of the server resources.

Are There Any Drawbacks?

Since managed WordPress hosting is a more customized hosting solution, there are a few drawbacks that come with the upgraded service. For instance, the costs for this kind of hosting are generally higher. Sometimes, there are also limitations on the amount of customization you can do across your site. Some managed WordPress hosts won’t allow your site to use certain plugins. This is usually catered by keeping high security messures on your WP site. Many Plugins can conflict and open doors to potential hacks on your site. So, if your site requires certain plugins to function, and those plugins are on the host’s restricted list, and then you might need to find another hosting option.

Also, you can only run WordPress on managed WordPress hosting. Any other kinds of CMSs aren’t allowed.

There’s no “right” hosting choice for every kind of business out there. But, if you can afford the additional costs of WordPress managed hosting, and have plans to grow your website in the future, then managed WP hosting is generally the way to go.

If you’re unsure about the higher price point, then stick with the basic shared hosting plans, you can always upgrade in time, as your site grows!
