Types Of Hosting Before Start
Types Of Hosting In this section, I will focus on those webhosting packages, which you need to know for your career in blogging. There are different types of WordPress Webhosting
This is one of the most common and cheapest hosting package type. For any newbie Blogger, this is the most affordable package type as it starts from $4- $15/month depending upon which company you are opting for. Shared hosting package can further be classified into limited Space and unlimited hosting. In a shared hosting environment, your Website will be hosted along with many (10-200) other Websites. Which means, all these Websites will have the same I.P and all of them will be sharing the resources of the same server. Shared servers are the most popular hosting choice for a newbie blogger or a new website which doesn’t need high resources. If you are starting with a new WordPress site, shared hosting is the best place to start with, as they are cheap and offers great resources like SSL, backup, Security.
Virtual Private server VPS is similar as shared hosting where your website will be hosted with many other websites. However, one major difference between shared hosting and VPS hosting is that your website will get dedicated resources. Virtual private server bridges the gap between dedicated server and shared hosting server it’s a part of dedicated server. Despite of sharing the same server with other websites, your Website will have dedicated I.P., dedicated computing resources and any faulty Website will not affect your Website. One of the most common myth about VPS is that moving to VPS Is always better than shared hosting, but here is a tip: Common shared hosting package offered by webhosting companies like Bluehost, interserver or InMotionHosting offers better resources than entry level VPS package.
In dedicated hosting, you will be the only one hosting your website on a server. Dedicated servers are costly and recommended for high-traffic websites. There are managed and unmanaged dedicated servers, and depending upon your technical skills, you can pick either of them. You will require dedicated server after your website starts getting millions of hits or you are facing running memory issue with your WordPress blog.
Managed WordPress hosting:
Managed WordPress hosting is a latecomer in hosting type but now one of the most popular hosting package for WordPress blog. There are companies that configure and optimize their server for hosting WordPress blog. This type of Webhosting is recommended for those who are running a business WordPress site or worried about their blog down time.
Managed WordPress hosting takes care of every inch of server optimization for hosting a WordPress Website. Their technical team is trained to manage WordPress servers and the best part is they know in’s and out of WordPress blog. The only problem with managed WordPress hosting is the pricing, as managed WordPress hosting are costlier than shared and VPS. The best part about Managed WordPress hosting is; you have to worry the least about your WordPress blog performance, security and any technical glitch. If you are not tight in budget, I would suggest you to opt for managed WordPress hosting.
