What is web hosting?

In a simple way web hosting service is a internet company service that saves and keeps your web pages alive for people to come in and browse.

What is WordPress hosting?

WordPress hosting is just the same web hosting service that has been optimized to serve WordPress better when it comes to performance and security needs. Usually this kind of hosting includes one-click WordPress installs to make it easy to get started with WordPress.

Types of hosting

There are many different hosting services that provide different needs as follows:

  1. Grid web hosting
  2. Cloud web hosting
  3. Colocation web hosting
  4. Managed web hosting, ⦁ Dedicated web hosting, ⦁ VPS web hosting
  5. Virtual dedicated web hosting
  6. Clustered web hosting
    7- Reseller web hosting
    8- Shared web hosting
    9- Free web hosting
So let`s start with number 9 which is free hosting: In short this is mostly for individuals that don`t care about branding their work or project but just want to have a web space to show a presentation or….. In general we don’t recommend free hosting providers because of tight restrictions they place on bandwidth, server speed, storage capacity and uptimes which can make your new site unusable so it’s much better to get a good shared host even at low cost. If you are student or individual that don`t care about branding your work then is the best choice but if you are ( individual vs business ) then you need a good, secure and solid web place that meets your need.

We are going to skip other web hostings except two hostings that are most common to use by individuals vs businesses even by WordPress users.

Shared Hosting vs Shared WordPress Hosting
Shared hosting is a type of low-cost plan where you share space and resources on a server with other sites, same as WordPress hosting that the service has WordPress platform.

Shared hosting isn’t great when it comes to reliability, resources and security.
Managed Hosting vs Managed WordPress Hosting

Managed hosting is a terminology that apply to VPS and dedicated servers where the host takes care of the day-to-day running of your server so at a single customer has dedicated servers and associated hardware.
Managed WordPress hosting service do all technical part of WordPress to run your website which includes security, daily backups, speed, WordPress updates, website reliability and uptime.

WordPress.org quote about WordPress hosting

“There are hundreds of thousands of web hosts out there, the vast majority of which meet the WordPress minimum requirements, and choosing one from the crowd can be a chore. Just like flowers need the right environment to grow, WordPress works best when it’s in a rich hosting environment.”
