Choosing the right host for a website can be a difficult decision, but it’s critical to the performance and stability of the site. When it comes to sites that are powered by WordPress, sometimes a few additional factors play into the decision of which host to choose. In this article we’ll take a look at some of the hosting options for WordPress-powered websites and blogs, and we’ll also look at some things to consider when you’re deciding which host would be right for you.
Basic Hosting Options
To start with, let’s take a look at the different options that are available when you’re looking for WordPress hosting.
WordPress can be used on just about any server with just about any host, so your options are quite vast. Using WordPress for your website doesn’t require you to choose a host that specifically serves the WordPress community.
Most hosts include Fantistico, Softaculous, or some other similar tool for easily installing CMSs and scripts on your server. This means that with most hosts you can easily install WordPress in a matter of just a few minutes without touching any code or doing any manual setup.
