WordPress is by far the world’s most popular blog and website building platform, so it stands to reason that there is a huge demand for good quality hosting. When there is demand there is usually supply and there are plenty of different options for you to consider when you do decide that you require WordPress hosting for your website.
For your website, the best hosting for WordPress will depend on a number of factors such as how much you are looking to spend, what features you require, how fast you want your site to open and how much space and bandwidth your site is going to require.
Best Hosting for WordPress Packages
Once you have made the decision to use WordPress for your website and are looking around for the best options with regards to hosting it, you will quickly learn that there are a number of different types of hosting packages around that have been designed to suit websites of all shapes and sizes.
- Free WordPress Hosting
Whilst we all love to get something for free, it really is not advisable to go for free hosting unless you are not overly serious about your website and just want to test or fiddle about with it. You get what you pay for in this world so you will never get much with free hosting apart from offensive ads, limited support and poor amounts of hosting space and bandwidth.
- Shared WordPress Hosting
Easily the most popular type of hosting package available today is that of shared WordPress hosting. This form of hosting has you sharing a server with a number of other websites in order to cut down on the costs involved. These can be had for as a little as a few dollars a month as the hosting companies are able to offer affordable prices due to sharing their servers across multiple customers.
This is definitely the best package to go for if you are just starting out but as your website grows, you might find that you may have to one day upgrade to a dedicated server hosting package.
- Dedicated Servers
If you have a website that attracts huge amounts of traffic, you should ideally be looking at getting yourself a dedicated server to host it. This means that your website will have a server all to itself and all the benefits that come along with it. They will provide you higher levels of control, superior levels of bandwidth and space and will come with excellent support packages.
However, a dedicated server is going to set you back anything from around $80 to thousands of dollars each month depending on your particular needs.
Simply shop around at the many different hosting companies, read reviews and garner customer feedback before making an informed decision based on the price, what they can offer you and which would be the perfect option for your own website. If you are new to running websites, it might be an idea to go for a package that offers good levels of support whilst if you are somewhat of an expert, you should perhaps instead go for a hosting company that offers you many features.
