What is Hosting with WordPress?
WordPress is a website-building tool. Many other website-building programs and applications have cropped up with the increasing popularity of the internet, but WordPress is one of the most popular. Its popularity is mostly linked to its easy-to-use platform and website designs. With a WordPress account, you can choose pre-built website templates and simply change the content, making it easier than ever to create a website. You can also start from scratch and build a website using a visual editor, meaning you don’t have to know any coding skills to make a well-designed site.
Hosting a website with WordPress integration allows you to get powerful hosting resources while making a professionally designed website. However, not all websites and businesses or brands will benefit from hosting with WordPress. Before making the decision, consider the following aspects of your website.
WordPress was originally designed to be a blogging platform. In fact, it’s still the number-one choice bloggers use to make new websites. While it has certainly branched far beyond that, it still has its roots in a simple design. You can make some websites that are slightly more complex, especially with hundreds of applications and widgets you can utilize. However, truly large and complicated websites won’t be able to work as well within the WordPress system. For example, while you can make an online store with WordPress, it requires some finagling and extra work that you wouldn’t need with a website builder that was originally designed for online shopping. If you have a blog or a fairly simple website, however, WordPress is an excellent builder.
Not having to know anything about coding or computer programming makes WordPress an appealing option. However, that does limit your ability to fine-tune the specifics of your website. In the WordPress visual editor, you can enter special CSS commands that will adjust the visuals of your website. But there aren’t any places where you can enter customized HTML codes or other scripting sections. Because of this, you are limited only to the pre-coded blocks that WordPress provides. Yes, you can include additional website features with applications and widgets, but you still don’t have the full customization that building a website from scratch or other site builders allow. If you’re looking for a quick and easy website and don’t have any specific design ideas in mind, however, WordPress is a great option for your website.
- Hosting Integration
In order to host with WordPress, you need a powerful and efficient hosting provider. Your provider gives you all the resources and tools you need to make sure your website is running efficiently at all times. However, not every hosting provider allows you to integrate your WordPress design. There’s no point in designing the perfect website if you can’t host it for others to see. Finding the right hosting provider is necessary if you want your website to perform well.
Along with WordPress integration, other things to look for in a hosting provider include:
- Variety of hosting plan options
- Other application integration
- Management services
- 24/7 customer support options
- Security measures
As long as you have the right hosting provider as your partner, your WordPress site will be easy to build and easy to host.
- Staff Access
When you have more than one person working on your website, it can get a little muddled when you’re trying to work together. With WordPress, you can allow other users access to your site, each with varying levels of access. For example, say you have an employee whose job is writing a new blog post for your website every week. While you trust them to do this, you don’t want them able to mess with your pages or post something without approval. You can give their user account access to only the blog and require them to only draft it so you can view it before it’s posted. WordPress is a great website builder that can help you manage your team members and who does what with your site.
