In this blog, we will discuss WordPress hosting, the different types of hosting that are available in WordPress, and what are the options available that you can use to host your website.

In other words, it is a service that can be used to upload website files on the internet. So that it is easier for other people to get quicker and faster access to your website.

Different types of WordPress hosting

There are 2 different types of hosting available which you can choose

  1. Shared WordPress hosting
  2. Managed WordPress hosting

Shared WordPress hosting

Shared WordPress hosting is cheaper than managed WordPress hosting in most cases.

As the name suggests “shared hosting” means you will be sharing the server with other websites. Although your website will be performance optimized for WordPress, you won’t be having all of the performance that the server can provide as it is shared.

The feature set that is provided in Shared WordPress Hosting is less if we compare it with managed hosting you will get a one-click WordPress installer using which you can install WordPress in a couple of minutes.

Other features would be automatic updates to WordPress core, a good support team, themes and plugins.

Managed WordPress Hosting

Managed WordPress sites have access to some of the most advanced hosting options available for WordPress blogs. Managed WordPress hosting alleviates the worry of hosting and managing your website by providing you with a team of WordPress specialists to assist you at every stage.

A dedicated server is usually used for managed WordPress hosting. It can, however, be set up using VPS hosting, cloud hosting, or a shared server environment. The particular type of server requirements you need will be determined by the hosting service you choose. Managed WordPress sites almost always use dedicated servers, which allows you more control over server setup and scalability.

Here are a few benefits of using Managed WordPress Hosting

  • Faster Speed Rate
  • High Security
  • Servers will always be up-to-date
  • Dedicated Support team
  • Uptime is high

Popular Hosting Options

There are mainly 3 things which need to be taken care of if you want to choose a wordpress hosting which are Speed, uptime and customer support. Available options are:

Hostinger

It is a prominent WordPress Host server that originated in Europe but now has data centers throughout Europe, the United States, and Asia. It doesn't give us the choice to choose a data center right immediately, but once we've joined up, we can ask for help moving our servers from Europe to the United States or from the United States to Asia. 

It also includes a WordPress website builder, which isn't ideal, but can be really useful for beginners. It also offers live chat help 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Even after being on the cheapest WordPress hosts, their performance is actually rather good. Its speed is 339 milliseconds, and its uptime is excellent.

SiteGround

It is yet another popular and reliable WordPress hosting service that the WordPress.org community recommends. It has expanded to a big network of over 2,000,000 domain names worldwide since 2004. One-click installation, automated updates, WP-Cli, staging WordPress, and git integration are among the features that make managing WordPress websites simple. 

It features a solid support team with specialist WordPress experience that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It uses the most up-to-date performance technology, such as PHP 7, CDNs, NGINX-based caching, and SSD drives, to make WordPress blogs load faster. It defends WordPress sites from hackers swiftly and effectively.
 

DreamHost

With over 340000 users, it is a well-known and well-established WordPress hosting server from the United States. The WordPress.org website also recommends it as a WordPress hosting solution. For WordPress users, this hosting service is straightforward, quick, optimized, and dependable. 

Site transfers are not free; they cost $99, however they are included in their $16.95 per month DreamPress plan, and no assistance is provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They provide a live chat service that is available as early as 5:30 a.m. For a week, I worked till 9:30 a.m. It doesn't require optimal website hosting to serve visitors from outside the US or Asia, but it does provide a consistent page speed of 569 milliseconds and a 99.92 percent "OK" uptime.
 

BlueHost

Between small company owners and bloggers, it is the best WordPress hosting service. It is inexpensive ($2.75 per month), easy to use, and has no performance issues. Bluehost has the best price-to-benefit ratio. In the last 12 months, our Pingdom uptime and speed monitoring tool has shown 99.99 percent uptime with only 24 outages and a full-page loading speed of 390 ms in less than an hour. 

It is one of the few excellent web servers that the WordPress.org community has officially recommended. This web host's plans include a free SSL certificate, a WordPress staging space, and an easy WordPress installation tool. Although it isn't inexpensive (starting at $2.75 a month), it does include a free SSL domain name for a year.
