Do You Need Help Choosing the Right WordPress Hosting Service for Your Business?
With so many companies offering WordPress hosting it can become overwhelming trying to choose what type of hosting you need, let alone which company to go with!
The good news is, we have done the hard work for you and broken down the pro’s and con’s of each hosting option so that you can make the right choice for your business.
There are four main types of hosting namely; Shared WordPress hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), WordPress Dedicated Server hosting and Managed WordPress hosting.
Shared WordPress hosting allows for many clients to be on the same server, sharing resources and a host whilst VPS is like having your very own virtual machine but without a support team.
WordPress dedicated server hosting gives you a dedicated server that is yours for you to do what you wish but for a price and managed WordPress hosting takes control of all technical aspects of a WordPress site for you, as well as giving you a full virtual support team.
Types of Hosting and Their Pros and Cons
|Type of Hosting||Level of traffic||Pro’s||Con’s|
|Shared WordPress Hosting||Low||
|Virtual Private Servers (VPS)||High||
|Dedicated WordPress Server||Very High||
|Managed WordPress Hosting||High||
How to Choose the Right One for you
If you are looking for an entry level hosting option for a hobby blog or small website then a shared server host may be a suitable option for you, especially if your website is beginning to grow as this allows you a quick and relatively cheap start up.
If you want to pay a similar price as with a shared server but have more flexibility then a VPS would be what you need, providing you don’t need technical support. This allows you freedom from the actions of other clients on the server.
If you are a large business with a bigger budget to spend then a dedicated WordPress server host may be appropriate. This is suitable for a fully functional and successful website where you can have complete control over it.
Last, but not least, Managed WordPress Hosting will work for you if you want to focus solely on your content and have someone else control the technical aspects of your website for you. This way you don’t have to worry about things such as website speed, reliability or security updates and your content will be safe and secure no matter what.
