A Guide to WordPress Hosting

An Overview of Hosting and WordPress History

What is WordPress hosting?

Standard web hosting services provide websites with the server space and resources required to deliver content online. There are four main types of hosting: shared, dedicated, VPS, and cloud.

However, since WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world, there’s an entire category (and industry) of WordPress hosting services designed explicitly for this CMS.

WordPress hosting plans should work seamlessly with all of the WordPress core software and other essential tools like plugins and themes. For example, a WordPress host may offer seamless installation of the CMS via a one-click installation process. It might also guide you through a WordPress-specific setup wizard and install specific plugins and tools.

Additionally, with this type of hosting, the servers are usually optimized for peak WordPress performance. The support team should also be particularly knowledgeable about this CMS.

What is managed WordPress?

With a managed hosting plan, you won’t have to worry about tasks like server configuration, maintenance, performance monitoring, and so on. Some of the best managed hosts will even provide extra optimization and security services. You’ll pay a slightly higher price in return for help managing your site.

Unlike the four “core” types of web hosting services, managed hosting isn’t completely determined by server type. Shared, VPS, dedicated, and cloud hosting plans can all be either “managed” or “unmanaged.”

An introduction to the WordPress CMS

Creating and running a website requires a lot of different tasks. For example, you have to write and publish content, manage the design of your site, administer to your users, and so on.

A Content Management System (CMS) is the perfect solution. As the name suggests, the primary job of a CMS is to make content management easier. A CMS can help you with this work, since it provides a fully-featured platform for creating content, publishing it online, and managing it. All of this can be done through an interface that doesn’t require you to have much technical know-how.

At the same time, you’ll find that many CMSs provide a developer-friendly structure under the hood. This means that if you do have coding experience, you can easily mold them to meet your exact needs.

How does WordPress work?

WordPress works by using a combination of PHP and MySQL to store and retrieve data. When users visit a WordPress site, the browser sends a request to the web server hosting site. The web server then sends this request to the WordPress software, which retrieves the necessary data from the MySQL database and uses PHP to generate the HTML code sent back to the user’s browser.

Now, let’s dive into what makes WordPress so beginner-friendly and intuitive. See below for some of the tools you’ll use to build a website with WordPress.

What does it mean to be open source?

When software is open source, it means the source code of that software program or application is available for anyone to access, modify, and distribute. Developers (and other users) can view and customize the underlying code and contribute improvements, bug fixes, and new features to the project.

Open source software is licensed, granting users the right to use, modify, and distribute the software for any purpose as long as they comply with the license terms. Open source software is generally free to use and distribute and can be modified and customized to suit specific needs and requirements.

A primary advantage of open source software is that it promotes collaboration and innovation, as developers and users can contribute to the project and build upon each others’ work.

WordPress is an excellent example of open source software, and its source code is freely available to anyone who wants to access and modify it. The effect is a vibrant ecosystem of developers and users who have contributed to the development of WordPress and built a wide range of plugins, themes, and other tools around the platform.

WordPress is licensed under the GPL v2 (or later), which provides four core freedoms:

  • The 1st Freedom: To run the program for any purpose.
  • The 2nd Freedom: To study how the program works and change it to make it do what you wish.
  • The 3rd Freedom: To redistribute.
  • The 4th Freedom: To distribute copies of your modified versions to others.

What does that mean for you? It means you can use WordPress to power your website however you wish.

What is website hosting?

Website hosting or web hosting is a service that enables you to put your content on the internet. It provides space on a server that stores your website’s files and makes them available online.

Servers are the structures powering the world wide web—made up of both hardware and software. Their job is to process online user requests and deliver content via browsers.

Through a series of web protocols, servers can access a website by following a web address that’s typed into your browser. The type of server and optimization tools you choose will significantly affect your site’s performance.

Servers require lots of resources, maintenance, and management, so web hosting is provided by private companies. These are typically referred to as “web hosts” or “hosting providers” (or just “hosts”). Each web host will usually offer multiple hosting plans that vary based on server configurations and added features.
