What is WordPress hosting?
Web hosting provides a place where the content of your website is stored and made available on the internet. Generally, this is a portion of disk space on a computer called a server. For people to be able to see your website, it has to live on a server.
A domain name points web browsers to your site. Your domain name represents a group of numbers that make up your IP address. Computers read your IP address and know where to look for it on the internet. Basically, your host is your website’s house, and your domain name is its address.
A hosting service specializes in storing and serving websites. They offer different types of hosting plans to their customers, which differ depending on speed, space, security, support level, and the number of sites sharing the same disk space.
Good hosting matters
Many hosting providers offer dirt-cheap hosting solutions because they cram a lot of sites into the same space. They also don’t provide much support. You’re renting space on a giant server shared with thousands of other websites.
While this is an economical solution for a bare-bones HTML/CSS website, it’s not the best choice for a sophisticated content management system like WordPress. WordPress is resource-intensive, meaning that it needs a lot of memory and bandwidth to perform well. Even with caching installed, WordPress doesn’t perform well on shared hosting. Also, these plans frequently skimp on security, which can leave your site vulnerable to hackers.
